CalltoPBX was one of our featured post for a very long time. They offered surprisingly cheap prices for unlimited international pc to phone calls for $10 per month. This plan was called Simplecall, it was a great success which can be seen by the number of comments (233 comments as we write) that we received on that post. The Calltopbx team was also very active replying to our comments, and concerns of our readers. However, the scenario has changed a bit now. Today, we are going to assess CalltoPBX again based on their new plans and changes to the classic Simplecall Plan in order to find out if CalltoPBX played a Bait and Switch game on its customers.
Simplecall plan for unlimited pc to phone calls to over 80 countries
Simplecall is the plan that offers you unlimited phone calls to over 80 countries for just $20 per month. It used to be $10 but they raised the prices to $15 and then in less than a week to $20. This was the biggest mistake they made. They disappointed their customers without giving them a notice that they were going to raise their rates. Some of our readers have prepaid credit in their accounts that they now want back. Nevertheless, people would still consider them if they raised it to $15 of course, with a prior notice.
How good is calltoPBX
If you read our older post about CalltoPBX, you will know that we always promoted them because of the cheap prices. We did not forget to mention that for $10 per month, you can not expect highest quality. However, even for $20 CalltoPBX would be a good service if they had improved their call quality. On the contrary people who alrady have an active plan are facing issues in making calls and these issues are not addressed by the calltopbx team. We ourselves have tried to contact them twice but to our dismay they did not reply to any of our queries. One reason for this could be that the team is too busy with the recent changes and it takes them longer than usual to get back to the external queries. Therefore, we are still hoping that they will get back to us at the earliest possible time. Please do not forget that providing unlimited calling to 80 countries at $10 per month is no joke. We wonder how did they keep their lights on for so long.
