8 x 8 is charging me $740 to cancel service. I have been a customer since 2017. Needed to cancel as my business closed for Covid 19 They where horrifying to speak with about this. They had 3 different amounts then landed on the $740 being the most. This had nothing to do with monthly charges, as those where always automatic and up to date. This is a totally made up number as they can not produce a contract. They tell me to reference small print. The small print is not clear- and they cant confirm that was even there with I started service in 2017. There is nothing about an amount for a cancelation fee in the small print. The whole thing is criminal and fraudulent. You can't even get a professional on the phone. They where all emotional and escalated. One even laughed at me. This is beyond traumatizing. I didn't know stuff like this still happened. Please- I will do everything I can to protect other small businesses from this horrifying company. Please- there are many other VOIP companys- pick any of them but 8 x8- and please ask them about hidden fake contracts, and cancelation terms.
"Mid-Market" 8x8 customer since 2012 with 34 lines and 10 toll free numbers. I was hired in 2013. From the moment I was hired I was getting complaints about dropped calls, spotty call quality, and issues with the softphones. After cleaning up the network, I came to realize it wasn't us (or our 500Mbps DIA connection) it was 8x8. Constantly have had problems over the past five years. If you need support, expect long hold times (30 minutes +) and to have to start running the gauntlet at the base level of support. If, you can get the person on the other end to understand that you're in a higher tier of support, expect more hold time. It's incredibly frustrating considering hosted PBX/VOIP services are supposed to save you time and make your life easier. I'm constantly having to call 8x8 support due to not being able to call certain numbers. Their softphone app constantly crashes or interferes with other programs like webex, chrome/firefox, VNC, Lync, Skype, Hipchat, etc. and often causes issues with computer sound (running Dell optiplex and XPS in this office) forcing a reboot to restore sound levels. The "meetings" part of the softphone app is a disaster. It's so bad we just ended up using gotomeeting instead. The conference lines kept having a problem where if you called in with an iPhone people could hear you but you couldn't hear anyone else. Billing is absolute nonsense. My company's accounting team and IT got together with 8x8 trying to determine what we were being billed for and no one at 8x8 could actually tell us. it's been 6 weeks and we're still waiting on an answer. This company has been an absolute nightmare to work with. If you decide to be brave and use them, you'll regret it. Here's an image of their softphone desktop app (and the amount of time I've been on hold with their support team for yet another number that can't be dialed. You'd think calling from Austin to Anaheim would be easy, huh?) http://imagehost.phoenix-nest.com/?di=6154948616415
I have had Nettalk Duo for over five years. This year I renewed again on March 14 for one more year from March 23 to March 22, 2021 paying for the whole year. My equipment just went bad and I did not wanted to use Nettalk any more as there is several other means these days. As a matter of fact I would use for may be one call a month or so in the last year or two. I had kept it just as backup to landline. As the equipment went bad, I wanted to terminate the service and get prorated amount back from the one year service prepaid. They came back and said that they cannot process the order if it is more than 120 days. Today July 20 is within 120 days from the renewal date of March 23 but not from the date of payment which is March 14. Paying early I got penalized. They said they cannot do anything. Terrible customer support. Paying early and being a good customer, you get punished. Be aware..
I've hat a netTalk Duo tat worked fine for a few years. Over the last year it started going off line with the flashing red light. I had to reset it bu y unplugging it and then plugging it back in. This was happening more frequently, so when I happened to get an email solicitation from netTalk to upgrade to their new upgraded device the ezLINQ, I decided to give it a try. A week after I ordered it I had not been provided any tracking information. So went on line to call them up. (Found out that there was not a direct phone number.). The only two options were text messaging and email. I wad told it took two weeks for delivery. A few minutes after texting I received an email from USPS that a tracking number was provided but package had not been provided to the carrier. Two weeks later the USPS still had not been provided with the package. I texted netTalk again, After about 45 minutes the Customer Service could not tell me anything more than what I already knew. (there was a tracking number provided to USPS and they were awaiting for the package to arrive at the facility.). The customer Service said they would check on status and email me. After 24 hours had passed I had not received an email. I texted netTalk back and told them to cancel my order and to issue a refund to my PayPal account. Late that evening I received an email from USPS that the item had arrived at their facility. I texted netTalk that I had cancelled the order and that I did not want the package. I told them to intercept the item and to refund my PayPal account. They made no attempt to intercept the item. After more texting and they finally sent me a return Fedex mailing label and told me that once they received the package back that they would issue the refund. The package was delivered back to netTalk on October 2, 2019. I informed netTalk' Customer Service that the package had been delivered and to issue the refund. As of today there has been no refund issued and netTalk Customer Service will no longer respond to my text messages or my emails. I have initiated a dispute with my credit card company. BOTTOM LINE.....STAY AWAY FROM NETTALK.
