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.
They have the worst call service. They behave like thieves and will take money from your account without informing you.
Please don’t waste your money. THIS is what I emailed them - Apr 19, 2021, 17:53 UTC I have used so many apps to make international calls, and so far your app has been the worst call quality. Used every which way possible, data, WiFi, phone line, called FROM different locations, different phones, called different numbers, same issue everywhere. No customer servie person to call, ONLY EMAIL!! WHAT?! Are we living in the 90’s??? And when emailed customer service, was told to send photo??? Really? Horrible experience! Going to tell anyone and everyone possible to STAY AWAY from you guys and save money and time. I had to chancel and look for something else. Not worth a single penny. AND THIS IS HOW THEY RESPONDED Ryan (Rebtel) Apr 21, 2021, 3:59 UTC Thanks a lot for getting in touch! I understand you would prefer a fast call, however, due to troubleshooting we currently only offer support through chat or email, so we don't have a phone number you can dial to reach us and we're very sorry if you have to go through all this I know how frustrating this must be to you. I understand the purpose why my colleague has asked you to send a screenshot because we want to make sure that you're only using the WIFI option only because we can see from your account that you're using the Phone Lines all the way from Last year and we did not see any changes with your connection. If you have been with the biggest TELCO company in the US you have probably gone through some troubleshooting too but it's different with Rebtel since we do not have phone support so that is why we have to ask you series of questions and sometimes screenshots for our reference. We respect if your judgment about Rebtel is a horrible app but if you measure that by how we attend to our user's complain then you probably have not been to any biggest TELCO where they have the worst troubleshooting process compared to us. You may cancel the account if you can't bear with the way we communicate with you, I am so sorry but we can only help you through email and if you do not have patience with it we cannot do anything about it. Yes, we're not in the '90s anymore but emailing is fun and you should find that way too. Thank you for being the best part of Rebtel! Best Regards, Ryan Rebtel Customer Team
