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 choose to go with Tin Can Talk primarily for their customer support.   When you do a search for VOIP providers, Tin Can Talk is not at the top of the list, and in some cases is not even on the list. However, if you dig a little bit, you will find them and they have excellent reviews!   When you call them, they answer. When you email them, they reply. When you have a problem, they solve it. In my opinion, their customer support is second to none. They are not the cheapest (you get what you pay for), do not have the best features (some of which are never used anyway), and their web interface is not the best (but it gets the job done).   This is a company that, I believe, truly cares about its customers and will do all they can to solve any problems you may have. They really want their customers to be satisfied. I can not emphasize enough Tin Can Talk's customer support. What good is a product if the company that sells you that product will not support it. I plan to be with them for a long time.

Can not rate this company highly enough. The owners are very proactive, helpful and knowledgeable. You do not have to talk to a machine you get a real live person.
