Ratings and Reviews
Perfect for keeping US number while overseas
When I moved overseas about a month ago, I panicked when I realized it would be more complicated than I thought to keep my US phone number functional, which is something I had to do to be able to keep working remotely for my US-based small company. I quickly found out Google Voice would not be sufficient for my needs (I need calls and texts to come through live and need to be able to connect audio to sharing platforms like webex), but thankfully did some searching around and found OpenPhone. The customer service reps were super responsive in answering my many questions, and were patient as I went through several iterations of getting the right account numbers from my current carrier to port my number over. I also appreciated that I could port my number while already out of the country, as I know that’s not possible with Google Voice. So far, the app is working super well - good call quality, has no problem connecting to platforms like webex, etc. I am still working through the text function (it seems like I can text through the app, but then messages come to me through iMessage still - could be that I don’t have a local phone number yet), but that is less important to me than the ability to use my phone number seamlessly. Really looking forward to having this app for the next few years while I’m abroad and am so thankful I found it - would highly recommend it to anyone who needs to keep a US number functional while overseas!
Changing my initial review (see below for the prior) from 1 to 5 for several reasons: 1-OpenPhone Customer Service response to both my message and my review were very quick and very polite. 2-They were able to clarify how I misunderstood the charges I initially thought were hidden numbers, not by telling me I was wrong rather showing me how to read it correctly. They weren’t hidden they were prorated just like they say in their signup. 3-The service is exactly what my small business needs, and a price we can afford. We are a startup the services other small businesses, I was able to setup an 855 toll free number and 4 employee lines. Not only that, the answering options coupled with text and automated responses makes us sound like we are larger and very professional. Thank you OpenPhone for being patient and working with us as we grow.
I’m a small business owner and got one 855 number and 4 local numbers. They charged the standard $10 plus $5 per line. Then the hidden fees stated showing up daily. In less than 2 weeks, very few calls and text s messages somehow we’ve racked up $50 in hidden fees. I’m not happy and going to port out our numbers to a second line with our cellular company. No where in their app or website or contract does it tell you you’ll get charged per minute or use. Definitely not an inexpensive app.
OpenPhone for the win
Let me preface this review with some background. I've had multiple orgs that I've been a part of for the better part of my life as a college student and even more so post graduation. Many of these are nonprofits or student groups that I dedicated my time to free of charge, because those orgs have very little money. Because of that, they also typically don't have any sort of phone infrastructure. I've had Google Voice, tried GoDaddy's offering, and even had more than one phone at a certain point. None of these worked nearly as well or were nearly as convenient as OpenPhone is.
I've got one phone number on the platform, which I use for pretty much everything for each org I'm involved in. It sits in my email signature & gets plenty of calls and texts every day. Over the time I've had OpenPhone, I've not had one issue in making a call, receiving a call, or texting. It all just works. When you're juggling so many things at once, the "just works" aspect of a tool you use is paramount. If it didn't just work, I'd be writing an entirely different review.
10/10 would use OpenPhone for all my non-personal phone lines. Keep up the good work team. I look forward to more features & (hopefully!) a web version and maybe the ability to add employees to the account (vs sharing the password). 🎉❤️
