Our company got 8X8 and had trouble from the get go to set it up. I asked for help and even offered to pay someone to come out and set it up but was told they don't do that and I could watch some videos or look at their website for help. About 5 months later of never using the service and paying for it, the owner of the company passed away with Covid. I called and asked to cancel the service as we were deciding whether or not the company would continue. They said the only way to cancel is to pay the entire 2 year contract in full. Just a terrible customer service experience and a no very understanding or compassionate business. Think twice before signing up for their service!
The worst experience ever. I would put 0 stars if I could. It started off as a great partnership, but recently became a nightmare. Firstly - our call log history disappeared and it took them 4 DAYS to fix that, in the meanwhile we couldn’t even see the calls we might have missed during that time. Support was just terrible - unresponsive, unprofessional with a terrible English. They finally managed to fix that and I was almost certain to switch to another company, but they promised me that it is the last time something like this happens. Fast forward to today - we have been unable to send out any texts for a majority of our extensions since Thursday last week. It is Tuesday today and the issue is still there — even though they told me two or three times that it was fixed. As I am writing this review I have been listening to their TERRIBLE on hold melody for 39 minutes while they are supposedly transferring me to “a senior tech” — whatever it means. We are now in the sixth day of waiting, yesterday lost a $1500+ of revenue because of this and who know how much more we are going to lose because of this terrible company. We will be porting out our numbers and leaving 8x8 for good as soon as humanly possible and I will probably be putting a case together with my attorney to sue them for lost profits. My advise - never work with this company and if you are working with them now - run without looking back.
I've had the NetTalkDuo device (2nd gen) since 2010 or so, bought for $49.88 at Walmart. Included was 1 year of service. It's more of the Plain Jane type, no BT or WiFi, yet it's worked flawlessly for the past 12 years! Best of all, a full year of service of netTALK is about the same or less than a month of AT&T service (at that time). Actually was about $10 less after AT&T's extensive list of taxes & "regularity fees", which could easily be $15-20/month in itself! I hope the device lives another dozen years, keep it dusted and in a cool place to draw heat away. About some who are complaining about call quality, there's a recommended list of compatible routers for the non-wifi devices, this is likely the cause of some issues. I was using a low cost TrendNet router which was on the list & it worked perfectly. Later, went to using Linksys routers, all have been fine with my DUO device. Plus use a CAT 7 patch cable long before many heard of CAT 6, to shield against noise. For sure, when this one goes out, will get a newer model, hopefully price will be the same. I deeply regret that I didn't buy two of these, as were on promo at the time, regularly priced around $65-75 in 2010.
After wasting so much time with your "team" and you guys probably knew it was the ezlinq all along. I will be switching phone companies after I review the ones out there. I have been with you guys for maybe ten years and have purchased multiple duos and the ezlinq for both my office and home. Saving a little bit of money each month doesn't make up for clients thinking your phone service has been disconnected after having the same number for 20 something years, and then you not being able to get it back up and running at all nor being able to get the calls forwarded. You guys have been in service for a fairly long time but are still bush league!
