We've had great success with 8x8. Uptime is great, haven't needed customer support, and their mobile app is also nice for receiving calls when on the road right to your smartphone. Highly recommend 8x8.

From customer support to intervening sales rep to billing support from the products and services themselves, we have received the WORST service from your company. Best part? No one seems to care. The app doesn't work well at all, and definitely doesn't flow with the VOD app. We had status update issues for over a year. The "New Experience" is worse than the classic app. Assigning a severity level to your support cases doesn't make any difference with how quickly a support rep gets in touch with you, so a "system failure" is treated the same as a "minimum business impact." Support is a classic case of the left hand not knowing what the right hand is doing. We're getting rid of them as soon as we feasibly can, and I would never recommend them to anyone ever.

I switched from Jive to Alliance Phones. They are truly the best VOIP Phone System that I've had. They stand out from the rest with their real value for money and polite and prompt service. The online portal makes managing the phone system much faster and easier. All our drivers have the mobile app installed on their smartphones. It just makes things so much easier and simpler.

They advertise FREE unlimited calling to the US and Canada and FREE magicJack to magicJack international calling, which it's an absolute lie. I signed for five years service promotional fee, that was 99.99, when the bill came in CAN dollars, was $187.90 they said they where not using the banking rate exchange and they have to charge me the exchange that was based on their calculations. I tried to cancel but they said I only would be refunded 17.00can because penalties for the cancelation. So I didn't have a choice and I had to keep the service. A month later, all a the sudden I stop receiving phone calls, I tried to fix the problem from my MJ online account but didn't worked. I tried to keep using the service just making outgoing calls and every often the calls where interrupted by recordings reminding to check my account or simply interrupted my phone calls. I contacted customer service which they said they where unable to fix the problem and they where unable to tell me the reason why my account was in hold. It took me few weeks calling every day and trying to contact someone to help me, but they told me that they where not even in the American continent to attend my concern. They said that they where in a place which they where no allowed to tell me, but they said they will pass my report. Couple of weeks later the problem became obsessively annoying interrupting my outgoing phone calls. I was unable to find help for this problem, so I decided to become rude with these people and they transferred to a supposed responsible. I was on my only account while I was speaking with this woman and she said hold on in the phone and she just cancelled all applications, devices and services which I saw the changes instantly on line. She came back to me on the phone and she said that I violate the time allowed on my service. I said that I paid for the five years service and that was advertised as unlimited phone, she said that some where in the 56 pages agreement said that the services isn't unlimited phone calls passing certain period per day. So they took my 187.90 can, they tried to make an other charge for the cancellation which thanks to my bank blocked the charge, they cancelled all my apps, devices and blocked the number I was using to contact them. There's no agency or government service to report this company's scam. I would ever recommend to get this terrible service that may was the must expensive phone service I have ever paid.
