    Customer Product Reviews

    Rated 4.3 out of 5★by 449reviewers.
    Rated 5 out of 5 Amazing deal! I had majicJack for about 2 years. The quality of majicJack has really deteriorated over that time. Many dropped calls and people not being able to get in touch with me. Moreover, their customer support is non-existent, so the issues could not be resolved. A few days ago I got fed up with majicJack and I decided to try Basictalk. Since it has no contract, I had nothing to really lose.And what a difference! The setup was extremely simple, the calls now are crystal clear, has all the features you will ever need (911, voicemail, caller id, call waiting), has an actual customer support and all of that for 10 bucks a month (with taxes and fees it's about $12.70/month for me). And on top of that, no start-up costs whatsoever!Al in all, I highly recommend. 05/23/2013
    Rated 5 out of 5★by Switching from Vonage to Basic Talk was easy!! I didn't know what to expect from Basic Talk after ordering it online and for only $9.88 on sale. The next day, my honey and I picked up the order at the service desk with no long wait...and quickly. After getting home, he installed (just plug it in as instructed) it and within just a few minutes, there was dial tone. So easy to register online and we had the choice of keeping the old number or getting a new we picked a new number and start fresh (so no unwanted calls...if you know what I mean...LOL). It's been about 2 weeks now, and no problems whatsoever! I also cancelled service with Vonage and I won't miss paying the $37.00 monthly payment. The representative was trying hard to keep me as a customer and tried to offer me a good deal for staying. I declined after having attempted to reduce my phone bill previously. Anyone looking to save money on basic phone service, switch over to Basic Talk and you'll have no regrets! 02/17/2014
    Rated 5 out of 5★by Far more than I expected for under $10.00 I bought this on a whim.I honestly thought it would prove itself a small piece of nothing.Boy was I wrong.It worked right away –perfectly. I used the online set up to get a new telephone number, but, after making a few calls, it was obvious that the call quality is massively better that what I had with an ATT landline.That same night, I requested to have my home number ported to the device. –that’s right, you can first try it out with a new number they give you and, if you like the service, you can then select to port your number.Because the device must be plugged into the modem, I had to rethink how I would set up my cordless phones in the house, but a 25ft phone cord took care of that. I chose not to use the included voice mail and instead opted to have it connected to my old answering machine. Everything works as it did. Only, …the call quality is better.This is a keeper. 06/02/2013
    Rated 5 out of 5★by $36/month vs $10/month same phones We've had digital phone service for years, but when the cost kept climbing it made sense to try BasicTalk. The box installed without problems and the phone number was switched within 7 days.The phone number switch was somewhat of a problem as we have a wireless whole house phone and no extra single phones. After install you have a temp phone number with BasicTalk. We were notified when the switch would occur but had to keep checking to see when it was switched. A single phone plugged into either would have made it easier. In retrospect , we should have kept an old phone or bought a cheap phone. We were notified by email after switch was made. I'm making the above comments for someone who has to be available without interruption. We are very happy with the unit and service. It works and today you can't expect much more than that.One added feature of BasicTalk is voice mail which kicks in after 10 rings. We have voice mail on our phone and use it. The good thing about the external mail is if internet service is down the external voice mail works. 12/08/2013
    Rated 5 out of 5★by What's not to like? I decided to purchase the BasicTalk box after reading many positive reviews on I calculated that the monthly price would be less even though I was getting discounted phone service from my cable company. Installation went smoothly. I only have a couple of small complaints, one is that the first month's service - supposed to be free - in fact cost me $1.50 for the E911 fee, not covered by the free offer. I was not told in advance that I would be debited the $1.50, but then it may have been in one of the screens I clicked through. Another small complaint is that the temporary phone number I was assigned was not local to my city. This might have been a showstopper except that I was porting my real phone number so it didn't matter. The port took six days, including a weekend.Calls are clearer than they were with my cable company. There's really no downside to BasicTalk, but I advise reading the signup screens carefully and if a local phone number is important to you, you might be disappointed. 10/17/2013
    Rated 4 out of 5★by So Far So Good Trying to budget like everyone else, decided to try it out. Purchased the item at a local Walmart for 9.99+ tax. There was only 2-3 boxes left hanging on the shelf of maybe 20. The setup of this device was very easy. Before I plugged everything in, I went online to activate everything first. Then, waited for about 15-30 minutes to plug everything in for setup. It will ask you if you want a new number or change to your old number. I just wanted a home phone for emergencies other than a cell. At first, I had thought that I would have to run a phone line and connect it to my wall outlet, this is not the case. You will not need your wall jack. I do have a phone connected to my old wall jack so I do not miss any calls until everything is transferred. Everything is connected to your router, therefore no running wires. I am hoping that they do not raise the prices since so many people are using it. 01/22/2014
    Rated 5 out of 5★by So far so good! Easy setup and working within minutes. Had a couple of minor connection issues at the very beginning but now I am getting clear calls with no issues. 05/18/2013
    Rated 5 out of 5★by Great Low Price Home Phone Service I haven't had a home phone in 7 years it was a wasted bill for me. The only reason why I decided to get another home phone was in case of an emergency my son could call 911 or the sitter could have something to talk without using all the minutes on his/her cell. This is still a wasted monthly expense because I may not even use it but it's good to have just in case. To be honest my cell is a wasted bill I hardly ever talk on it as well but if I need it it's there for me to use. Basic Talk only took me about 5-15 minutes to set up the dial tone is very clear I made a couple of test calls it was very clear all and all I'm very pleased with this product. I just wanted to add the good thing about this phone is that it's wireless when you move just unplug it set it back up at your new location re-enter your service address for 911 purpose then you're all set and the last thing if you have kids/teens or someone using your phone you could go online look at your account to see your phone log. 07/06/2013
