4. Can I use my existing IP-phones with UniTel Voice?
Yes, as long as your phone is one of the VoIP devices we support. We’ll help you configure it and so all you have to do is simply plug them into your router and turn them on.
One caveat, some providers hardwire the IP-phones they provide to only work with their system. It’s kind of a sneaky way to lock you into their service. At setup, our support team will let you know if that is the case with your IP-phones.
Side note: If you order a new IP-phone through us, we do not hardwire it or lock it up in any way. You are free to use our IP-phones with any other VoIP provider down the road.

8. What makes UniTel Voice the best business VoIP provider?
UniTel Voice is the best VoIP provider in the small business SOHO (small office/home office) category because you get concierge-level service at a DYI (do it yourself) price. In other words, no other provider offers the same quality of service and hands-on customer support that we do at our price point.
We understand that our customers might not have a “tech guy” and don’t have time to become do-it-yourself VoIP experts. That’s why we make getting business VoIP simple and affordable. We help you pick your IP-phones, we order them for you, we configure them, and we ship them right to you ready to just plug in and work.
9. How does UniTel Voice compare on business VoIP pricing?
Our pricing is competitive with the “cheap” VoIP providers who expect you to order your equipment from a third-party, use a technical instruction manual to configure it, and then troubleshoot internet protocol issues on your own. But that’s not how it works with UniTel Voice. We offer hands-on customer service and support competitive with our industry’s premier providers who charge upwards of $50/user.
With UniTel Voice, for just $9.99/user, you get enterprise-level technology supported by concierge-level service. No other USA-based business VoIP provider offers the same kind of headache-free customer experience at that price point.
