"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
8x8 just gets the job done for us. A good phone system is one you don't have to think about much. It has all the features we need, and works well with our remote team on their smartphones. Haven't experienced any down time or customer service issues either.
Was an old Sunrocket customer until the changeover to Teleblend years ago. Since then they have changed their hardware/software several times, each time getting worse than the last. Currently the last change, sometime in July of 2018, features of call blocking, forwarding, caller ID, and more have become non existent. They have no phone service of their own for support or service. Everything is done by email. Looking into reporting to PUC and any other agency if they try to prevent me from porting my number to another service. Their cost is also no longer competitive. $27ish yet advertised for $15.99. Absolutely unacceptable!!! In the beginning I was only loyal since Sunrocket was awesome. Lesson learned...
I transferred from Sunrocket to Teleblend many years ago. Since then their Price has gone Up and Up and Service and Quality have gone Down and Down. There is NO phone that will get you to their offices... everything is by email IF they even respond! Their website just got changed and now Call Fowarding is almost impossible to use, Call Blocking is gone,, and ALL MY CONTACTS HAVE BEEN LOST!! AND Now (2 times) I have tried to take my number from them to another company and they WILL NOT RELEASE MY PHONE NUMBER FOR PORTING.!!! This happened in 2015 (with basic talk VOIP) and now again in 2018 with Comcast/xfinity mobile. I have filed a complaint with the FCC. Do NOT sign up with Teleblend,,, and whatever you do... don't sign up with a number you want to keep!! They are the WORST PHONE COMPANY ON THE PLANET!! Mike in Rockford Illinois
