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.

Horrible experience it’s been 3 weeks that I ported my number from Vonage and my phone still not working porplerly. Call customer service 6 times and they keep on telling me they will call me next day they are working on it. What type of company is this that they don’t know what to do to fix my phone. Horrible horrible experience. Working on getting another company to transfer my number again.

So far the port of my number has taken 28 days. I just called Lingo Customer Care and was told that the number will be ported on Jan 19, a total of 34 days. When I call, the recorded message says that my call will be transferred to a customer service representative but then the phone hangs up. This morning when I called, I was on the phone for about 5 minutes while they tried to sell me a bunch of stuff so they could transfer my call to another company. They never even asked what I was calling about. I finally hung up and called back. I get an auto response when I send email but I never get an answer to my questions. Given the number of complaints that I have seen on the internet, I'm beginning to think I have made a huge mistake in becoming a customer of Lingo. They don't seem to value their customers.
