We've been trying to get 8x8 to fix a chronic problem with our recorded calls getting randomly lost or corrupted. We call and email them daily and get little to no response. The typical response is "that department is very busy with other problems, we'll get to yours when we get to it." They say that the problem gets escalated to a higher tier but we still haven't gotten a response and it's been over a week now. I've called our rep Aldrich and he says that he's done all that he can and I've talked to Donovan who is apparently the head of the tech department and he is the one that told me that they'll get to our calls when they get to them. Very unresponsive when it comes to resolving issues.

After 12 months of frustration, we have moved away from 8X8. The issue was never the suite of features. It was customer service for a persistent problem. The basic requirement for a telephone system is that it allows me to make and receive calls. For 12 months, we were unable to receive call from many local people. I was told that it was not the fault of 8X8 and to contact our old provider, Verizon. Verizon said they had ported the number and that was all they could do. We have switched to 3CX. Within 2 days, the local contact was able to trace and resolve the problem. Anyone can now call. My experience shows that 8X8 is not willing to help solve a serious problem. I should also add that they offered no compensation for this issue. I cannot recommend 8x8.

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.
