No details on how to get the PC to phone account and no support details to contact dialpad.
i like it because it is free
Dialpad has been a source of endless frustration for me. I agree whole heartedly with Mr. Coburn's statements about the lack luster service and vocal quality. I have had calls dropped with every attempt I make no mater what changes I make to my network at home. I got work and try and surprise, a whole set of different problems. If you try to contact a real huma being to discuss your problems, forget it! All customer service is delivered through instant messaging! That undoubably leads to instant headaches, migrains and longing for the good old days when there was only one phone company where human beings answered your questions and solved your problems post-haste.
Like one of the blue sky reviewers below, I too use a Clarisys I750 with DialPox however unlike that person I don't live in Pleasentville, I can honestly say quality is moderate and unimpressive. My advice to those looking for a quality PC-to-Phone service where there is no monthly fee... good luck. Net2phone may be the only alternative, whomever you try, becareful and have a large bottle of asprin and antacid handy.
I evaluated Dialpad and it worked pretty good. Though call qualtiy is not nearly as good as the phone company and many calls do not connect, I still thought it was a good value for the price so I signed up as a reseller in Mexico and bought a lot of airtime to sell. When I tried to sell it, I found that the majority of time it had many problems. On many computers and systems that exceeded the system requirements of Dialpad, calls could not be made at all. I believe that my experience at home was a fluke. I tried to get my money back for the unused airtime as I believe I cannot sell it in good faith to to others. Dialpad is unwilling to reiumburse the airtime that was not used and blames the problems on "network problems".
It is interesting that previously, Dialpad had a lot of user ratings on Cnet and the net score was negative of about 75%. Now a new score exists.
This internet phone allowed me to communicate clearly with people in different parts of the world with such clarity that the people thought I was near them using a phone.
good setup wizard and sleek looking interface. call quality ok - good enough for internal calls. use something like Net Prioritizer to stop other chatty network apps from interfering with your calls.
not *quite* as good as the regular telephone, but fun to use and it does indeed work. they seem to have earlier bugs worked out.
however, you can indeed beat the 2.9 cent price thru costco, they do have some monthly plan that looks ok.
