MightyCall’s essential components which Grasshopper is missing:
What is better — traditional or IP telephony? Calls through PSTN (Public Switched Telephone Network) have better quality if you have poor internet, but IP telephony is usually much more functional. Considering the tradeoff, it’s better for a service provider to have both.
MightyCall does, while Grasshopper does not.
Unlimited Free Extensions
A big part of getting a virtual phone system is to use it efficiently, and to do that you should absolutely be bringing all of your staff into whatever system you choose.
With Grasshopper however, plans only offer 3 phone extensions, which means employees may have to share, leading to confusion and less organization.
MightyCall knows that each employee needs their own line to maximize their time and thus your company’s flexibility, so we offer unlimited free extensions on every plan.
MightyCall users can make and transfer calls to colleagues through short internal numbers, as well as to users of any virtual phone system.
Grasshopper users can’t.

Available only in MightyCall virtual phone system!
With MightyCall you don’t need a phone (none!) to communicate with clients via your business number. MightyCall’s webphone is embedded into your service profile web panel. The webphone allows you to:
- make and receive calls through your business number,
- forward calls to someone else,
- create conference calls,
- communicate smoothly with your team.
Available only in MightyCall virtual phone system!
A MightyCall user can set their personal status as “available” or “do not disturb” to inform colleagues whether he/she is ready to receive a call.
This is convenient for internal communications: everyone can see whether his/her teammate is available to talk and it makes the customer experience better. Since MightyCall doesn’t forward incoming calls to busy managers, the time taken to answer is reduced.
Flexible Call distribution
Don’t confine your business’s possibilities; with Flexible Call Distribution you can adjust how your company fields phone calls to maximize your operation. Whether you want an equal approach of either all your phones ringing simultaneously or ringing in circular order through your staff, or you’d prefer to route calls directly to managers or available workers, Flexible Call Distribution ensures you have control.
Existing number transfer
MightyCall offers a lot of numbers to choose from, both local and toll-free.
But if you already have a virtual number that you like and is working for your business, we’re more than happy to port it into MightyCall for free so you can keep using it.
MightyCall was more flexible and better value than Grasshopper, and allows our business to be mobile and the team to work virtually, which is our main goal. Because our business is 99% internet-based, we don’t need a fixed location nor the costly infrastructure that includes fixed phone systems and staff needed to man the phones, as all these add to our operational costs.
By being able to route calls by pressing one or pressing two, we found that calls were being more accurately routed. So we positioned MightyCall to redirect reservation calls to our call center, and handled all informational requests ourselves. MightyCall saves us up to six times what it costs us. That’s a no-brainer for me.
I took over the company in 2016. The year before, they were paying Verizon over $700/month for a phone system that had to be installed and maintained in their office. I got the exact same “system” from you for $24.95/month (800#, multiple lines, patch directly through to remote numbers, individual messaging, etc.) My calculator doesn’t have enough space to show the percent savings )
