What People Dislike About RingCentral

  • The 200 message limit. RingCentral presently has 200 fax and voice message storage limit for every extension.
  • Dial by name charge. This is perhaps picky and a not so popularly used feature among professionals with less than six extensions away, however, most consumers would like to reduce the $4.99 per month charge on this one.
  • Single incoming line. If you want more than one line, you have to get their RingCentral Office 4 plan.
  • Customer support. By the year 2008, RingCentral outsourced their customer support and unfortunately, the transition wasn’t that smooth. They struggled over the next years to improve their customer service level on what is expected of them. Today they have Twitter and Facebook pages to help address their customers’ issues.

RingCentral Office and Mobile Plans offer the basic features of a small phone system such as internet fax, voicemail, greetings, toll free numbers, web phone features and so much more. Find out more RingCentral reviews online and see if their services fit your business needs.
