What Our Customers Are Saying
Don’t just take it from us, let our customers do the talking!
“When a patient accidentally calls the Belleville office instead of the Mt. Vernon location, instead of asking them to hang up and dial another number (hoping we don’t lose that new client), we can now just transfer them to the other office without their ever knowing the difference.”Mary Barr
“Switchvox was built for a company just like ours who wants all the features and functionality of an Asterisk-driven system, but one that is preconfigured and packaged at a bundled price that is significantly more affordable than any of the big box brands.”Mark Ratliff
“As a manager, I never had any way with the old system to know who was calling who, nor was I able to track any trends like what days we seemed to get the most phone traffic and what kind of calls they were. Having these features help us make better staffing decisions and analyze our advertising effectiveness.”Mike Truran
Frequently Asked Questions
What's the warranty?
With a one-year limited warranty, you can focus on growing your business. If you decide to rent your phones from us, the warranty is extended during the entire rental period. Optionally, the warranty on purchased phones can be extended to five-years for a very small cost. Ask us to include the option in your proposal.
Can you install it for me?
Yes. We have a thousands of qualified installers available throughout the United States to install it all — headache free. Alternatively, some customers choose to install the system themselves with our “remote programming and initial configuration setup” option instead. It’s entirely your choice — whatever option fits you best.
Why choose a phone system with its own brand phones?
The Switchvox phone system supports any standard SIP phone including Cisco, Polycom, Yealink, softphones, and more. But the Digium phones are unique because they fully integrate with the Switchvox system and all its features.

Do you offer a demo or free trial?
Yes, we do offer a 30 day free trial of our Switchvox cloud service with five Digium phones shipped to your door to test! Complete this simple form and we’ll get you set up with your own demo server, configured however you like.
Does Switchvox offer fax capabilities?
Absolutely. First, you have the ability to receive all incoming faxes in your e-mail as a PDF. Second, you have the ability to send e-mails from your desktop PC with a few simple clicks. If you still need to use a physical fax machine, you can dedicate its extension to just sending faxes and let Switchvox manage all of the incoming faxes.
Do these phones work with headsets?
Yes. You can easily connect a wired or wireless headset to any of these phones. Ask us to include the number of headsets you need to your proposal and let us know if you’d prefer wireless or wired.
Can I page through the phones?
Yes. Paging is supported to allow you to announce your one-way voice message to any group or all phones. And, unique to Switchvox, you can also page across multiple sites/physical locations. Also, optionally, Switchvox allows you to create a two-way paging group that turns on all microphones and speakers for instant hands-free answer-back to your group announcement.
If I receive a call transferred to my cell, what can I do with it during the call?
When a call is transferred from Switchvox to your home phone or cell phone (instead of using the iOS or Android app, for some reason), you have “hidden” options that emulate features you would normally have when using a desk phone. Those include the ability to place the call on music-on-hold, transfer the call to any other user, send the caller to your voicemail (or someone else’s voicemail), or enable immediate call recording.
Does Switchvox offer Visual Voicemail?
Yes. Voicemail can be accessed through the screen of the Digium telephone, allowing you to scroll up and down through the list of all voicemail messages (and call recordings) showing the time, date, and Caller ID of each message allowing you to quickly choose which messages to play and which to delete or forward.
Can I use this system with provider X?
The Digium Switchvox system integrates with any telephone service provider that offers PSTN (or POTS) analog, PRI (digital) telephone lines, or SIP Trunking (VoIP), or you can choose to have us host the phone system in the cloud and use us as your phone service provider. Contact us if you have any questions.
What about regular maintenance and support?
Phonewire is a certified partner with best-in-class product support team. When you purchase your system, you can optionally purchase a support plan to make sure you keep your new business phone system running smoothly with all the latest features and software upgrades.
Do you offer financing options?
Yes, we do offer financing through our select lenders. Our attractive financing options make Switchvox easy to implement within consideration of your available budget. Our proposal/quote will typically include one financing suggestion, but please do not hesitate to express your interest in other financing options so we can explore which program would be the best for you.
