    "Poor support, could not use."

    October 10, 2013  |   By GWS100

    Version: FaxTalk Messenger Pro 8.0

    Pros

    The trial software seemed like it would do what we needed.

    Cons

    When we tried to upgrade, we paid for the software and never received an activation code or link to download the full version. We received the thank you email for downloading the trial version, but nothing else. No emails we sent were ever answered when trying to upgrade. We paid through Paypal and opened a case and we then received a phone call from Peter using a "private number" saying our order was canceled, but so far still have not received a refund for our canceled order.

    "The only choice for TalkWorks/WinFax orphans."

    April 9, 2013  |   By Satviewer2000

    Version: FaxTalk Messenger Pro 8.0

    Pros

    1. Has look and feel of WinFax/TalkWorks.
    2. Updated to work with latest Windows systems.
    3. Excellent tech support by seller.
    4. Fantastic rule based answering schedule!
    5. Relatively inexpensive for what it does.
    6. Numerous ways to notify user of important calls/faxes.

    Cons

    1. "Blind flash hook" does not seem to work?
    2. Lack of "multi-tiered mailbox options".
    (although I created a work-around for this deficiency).
    3. Cannot log incoming calls unless it also answers phone?
    4. Cannot notify me by sending a text message to my mobile phone.
    5. Cannot attach voice message and send via email?

    Summary

    Believe it or not, I had been using TalkWorks 3.0 up until recently but finally gave up on it after frequent lockups and other glitches in WinXP (OK, I know it's not even supposed to work with XP but it did work initially). And I was also an avid user of WinFax Pro but started developing numerous problems receiving faxes, although sending them was fine. Anyway, it was time to move on as Symantec/Norton had not provided updates or support for those programs for 10+ years (if it ain't broke, don't fix it is my motto). So I must have tried at least 20 different fax/voice programs, none of which even came close to what I was using before. Then I finally came across this program which not only had a similar look and feel to the Norton programs, making it easy to change over, but was updated to work with all the most recent Windows and hardware. The one thing TalkWorks could do was create "multi-tiered" messages. That is, when you press option one, then you are presented with another subset of options. I managed to create a similar feeling system with this program using 2 number selections. So far it has worked perfectly, for both faxes and for voice messages. I am running a "small business" and this program has probably saved me thousands of dollars. When I asked if the local phone company could provide a similar answering service, they told me yes, at a cost of over $5000 a year! I cannot afford that running a small business! This has been a nearly perfect solution so far. PS: TalkWorks 3.0's "blind flash hook" feature was working with current my phone provider, but for some reason this feature just will not work with FaxTalk, I am not sure why.
