Simply does not work. I registered an account with Voxox, chose a phone number, got emails about it, and downloaded the application. However, nothing works. It is not possible to make calls or to receive calls. Forget about it ...

Serious support and store problems -

- sent 3 emails to support in past 4 days, all received auto reply within seconds, but no real reply so far to any

- store offers only credits, calling plan and text plan - no virtual number offer

- when trying to make a purchase with my Seattle address and all American credit card I'm getting a message - "purchases are not supported for your region"

- tried to purchase calling plan through different mac from different location - this time got "your order was put on hold pending security review, please contact support for manual processing" - fine, but there is no phone number available for support, so how they want to process anything manually. And of course no replies to emails sent to support.

Conclusion - great concept, beyond disastrous implementation. Support ignores my emails

Over a week past since I signed up, tried to purchase calling plan and started emailing support. So far nobody cared to reply.

And we all though that Skype's support is bad....

Finally, after a week since my purchase order was put on hold "for security review" I received email from Erika B. at VoxOx stating:

"What you are experiencing is the direct result of payment filters designed to prevent unauthorized purchases. There is no way for me to over ride these filters to process your payment. I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you"

Looks like VoxOx is accusing me of an attempt to make an unauthorized purchase, a credit card fraud, and have no intention to provide any solution.

I googled some info about VoxOx and there are tons of reported problems - mainly inability to make the call.

Recommendation - stay as far away as you can from VoxOx.

What is their privacy policy ?
Do they harvest data ?
Any third-parties involved ?

Damn capture on their website. After a dozen unsuccessful attempts, I gave it up.

Having the same issues. Crashes each time I login under OS X. Put in some many problem reports with attached crash logs,etc. I have got email from support; the last one today to the effect that crashes on Mac have been identified and will not be fixed until 2.0.7 is release and that is expected in the next week or so. Yes, they are slow and fixing and releasing releases for problems; not too sure if they have the support staff and I do think there priority is on Windows at the moment. BUT i am getting emails from Erica on the issue - supposedly only affects a small number of Mac users but the feedback I have seen is that it is more than a small number. I offered my service to help debug and resolve the issues but I got a polite refusal.
Not ready for primetime yet on mac. It seems to work on Windows, however there are still issues with the phone number that they assign you.
I will wait until 2.0.7 to further check this out.

I've only had this for a short time but it's not that bad for a beta application. If you're looking to consolidate all your internet communication apps this just might be what you're looking for. The interface is fairly easy to master and set up is too. The nice thing is you can use it for free if you only use some of the basic features like instant messaging and email. For the more advanced features they have several no contract plans plus you can use them on a pay-as-you-go basis. It's also nice that they have software for both Mac and Windows PC's. As for bugs I've only experienced 1 or 2 so far. You really should go to their website and check out all the features available plus the different plans available to decide if it's worth it to you to try it.

I put $10 on account to try VoxOx out…

…but VoxOx crashes (quits) every time I open it and go to settings (to set audio preferences, e.g.).

iMac 2.16GHz (3Gb 667MHz) -- OSX 10.5.8

I think these folks are going to need to get some responsive tech support if they are going to get off the ground…

I think the web site is more informative now. I believe this program is basically a single application interface to all your contacts and all the ways you communicate with them. There does seem to be some mystery as to what it would actually cost to call country xyz. It seems like they may be heading toward a type of social network as well. Overall, I would think some jet setters or business people or even college students might find it useful.

Another solution to a yet to be invented problem. The whole point of this exercise is to sell some VoIP service. Waste of my time.

Yes this looks interesting, but what on earth is it? The Website looks well but has zero information. How does it relate or compare to other apps in the field like Skype, iChat, and so on. I am interested but do I really have to download and install it just to find out this kind of basic information

This app seems to be Intel only, not PPC, according to download page.
