Phone People Review


Great news! Phone People has been acquired by onebox!

I've left my previous review of Phone People for historical purposes, but Phone People is no more. All users have been moved to onebox which is a MUCH better plan!

Historical Review of Phone People

(I'm leaving this information up for anyone that might be interested in the old Phone People information, but please see onebox as all Phone People clients have been moved onebox.)

Phone People used to be Under this new name not much has changed other than their branding.

Phone People plans are still VERY confusing and they still have not figured out how to make the sign-up process easy for customers. They have monthly pricing plans AND service plans to cotnend with rather than giving everyone all of the features regardless of the plan you choose.

To make things worse they are still double billing for your minutes (2 legged billing) and claiming that they are cheaper than most of their competitors!!!!

Phone People Sign-up Process

To simplify, here are the steps you need to follow to pick a plan with Phone People:

  1. Pick a number
  2. Pick a monthly Plan
  3. Pick the feature plan you want
  4. Check out
