Callwave - Watch Out

I downloaded Callwave Software but before it can be used you have to call your local phone company to have your busy signal forwarded to Callwave. I NEVER CALLED MY LOCAL PHONE COMPANY TO FORWARD! I then recieved long distance charges on my phone bill through a Callwave service and the bill did not list the phone numbers - just the charges. There is only one conclusion - this service will scam you and charge you for numbers that don't exist. Just to remind you, I never called my local phone company to forward calls but got charged for calls that did not exist - watch out on this one. Filing complaint with local phone company as well as my New York State Attorney Generals Office!!!

I have had CallWave for years and have never had to call my phone Co. or have I been charged any LD service... But what might be happening here is if you hit the button to take the call when one comes in... you will be charged for each of these calls.

No problem with Callwave

In reply to: Callwave - Watch Out

My experience with about a year's use of Callwave is that it is reasonably priced and very useful.

No problem here...

In reply to: No problem with Callwave

Used CallWave for at least four years. My service did require "Busy call forwarding activation" with my local telephone company which I did. Absolutely no other problems.

I have just recently discontinued CallWave and instead am using BellSouth Internet Call Waiting service for about half the monthly cost. Price was the reason for change.
