Great company to work with. Whenever I have a question, I can get ahold of someone right away. They always go above and beyond.
We've used Liberty Communications for our office phone system for several years and find them helpful, responsive, and knowledgeable. We easily recommend Liberty Communications.
Great platform, easy to use. Service is amazing! Thank you!
We have been using Liberty Communications for over 6 years now. Our account manager Chad has always been awesome to work with and they have been a GREAT service provider for us. We very rarely have issues with our phones and they have made it very easy to use the system remotely and on site. I highly recommend them to anyone needing a phone system for their business. Thanks Liberty!
Liberty Communications provides us with excellent service and has very friendly and helpful staff. The Flexfone system is awesome, we are able to work from anywhere and still answer office phones just like we were sitting at our desk. Having the flexibility to be on the road and still be able to help our clients when they call helps us provide excellent service and keep our clients happy. Would highly recommend giving Liberty Communications/Flexfone a call for your business needs.

Liberty Communications has provided our company significant telecommunications support from installation to support to engineering. A valuable part of our company.
Liberty has been a great addition to our support team. They are very knowledgeable and efficient in helping us to resolve any problems that arise with our phone system or our business internet service.. I appreciate having a single point of contact, knowing that they know who to call and what to say. I highly recommend them.
They are always quick to help solve our phone issues.
We recently switched over to Liberty Communications and so far it has been a wonderful experience. They have a friendly and helpful staff that went above and beyond our expectations. Andrew and Daniel were a pleasure to work with and went to great lengths to make sure we were satisfied. Can't recommend them enough!
Daniel Whitaker at Liberty Communications help me for months to get a refund from Comcast. Comcast had over charged our company more than $7,000 and they said that they couldn't refund us the money. Daniel's persistence with numerous individuals at Comcast finally got them to concede that they owed us the money and they would send us a check. Thank you Daniel and Liberty Communications for watching my back and fighting the fight.
