Decisions about Grasshopper and RingCentral
Matt Safaii

I use OpenPhone for its simplicity, affordability, and powerful set of features. OpenPhone has allowed me to stop using my personal cell # for business and cut out all the noise. Features like call recording and being able to set business hours with automated replies have been very helpful. On top of that, the call quality is excellent. I have yet to experience a dropped call! The applications on iOS and Desktop are modern and everything just works. Daryna and the team at OpenPhone have done an amazing job and have a superfan in me and my company.
