Re: DON'T BLAME Voip.ms

I don't know what XO is... If a service is down and it is not my internet connection, or local hardware, then of course I blame the provider. They are the ones who decide what service levels they subscribe to, what backups are in place, etc. But has I said, that is still better than a 99.9% up time. I only had one other actual outage during the time period with them, and that was my fault, in that I ignored the e-mail they sent telling me I needed to update my configuration for their new SIP host names. I think I had more outages when I was with Bell Canada on a land line than with Voip.ms, so that is extremely reliable service.

As for fax, it is a disappointment, but not an unexpected one. If I really need to use a fax, I usually end-up using an e-mail to FAX service. One page faxes usually work, so long as the other end is not also using VOIP.

It is worth noting that if you pay voip.ms with paypal no taxes are added to the order. If you paying with credit card they charge GST. I question the legality of this. If they Voip.ms is a Canadian company, they must always pay GST on sales to Canadian customers.

Please do not question the legality of this, many Canadian customers will be very unhappy if you are the cause for a change.

European Union law require North American merchants to charge European VAT (sales tax) for sales to customers in the European Union. But it is very common they "forget" to charge VAT when PayPal is used for payment. This is one reason why PayPal is so loved by customers in the European Union when they purchase something at North Americans merchants.

Actually voip.ms closed this loophole a long time ago. (Even before the HST in Ontario.) I doubt it had anything to do with my review.
