When I first stumbled upon Pagoo, I had a 56K dial-up connection. Pagoo had a great concept: turning your computer into a telephone. You get your own phone number and when someone calls you and you are offline, they can leave a message or the call will be transferred to your real phone number.
The problem was that with my slow connection, PC telephony was out of the question for me. The sound quality was just horrible with any company I tried and for that reason, I did not download Pagoo software.
Recently, I moved and am now connected to Internet through a university network. I am downloading multi-megabyte files in less than a minute. One of those files was the Pagoo software. I installed it and realized it did not work. Soon, I found out that Pagoo does not work behind firewalls. (For those of you who do not know what firewalls are, they are usually found on networks. They are set up so that people would not get into the network and do something bad on it. That's as simple as I can explain it.) A lot of people who have fast Internet connection are behind a firewall. Many do not even know it. Pagoo should, in my opinion, be used only if you have a fast always-on connection. However, these connection often have a firewall and therefore Pagoo cannot be used by people who use those connections.
Pagoo had a great concept, but Pagoo software cannot be used on all computers. For that reason, I don't believe it is a good product. If their software could be used behind a firewall, I would give Pagoo 5 stars. Until that time, I cannot recommend it to anyone.
