We've been trying to get 8x8 to fix a chronic problem with our recorded calls getting randomly lost or corrupted. We call and email them daily and get little to no response. The typical response is "that department is very busy with other problems, we'll get to yours when we get to it." They say that the problem gets escalated to a higher tier but we still haven't gotten a response and it's been over a week now. I've called our rep Aldrich and he says that he's done all that he can and I've talked to Donovan who is apparently the head of the tech department and he is the one that told me that they'll get to our calls when they get to them. Very unresponsive when it comes to resolving issues.

After 12 months of frustration, we have moved away from 8X8. The issue was never the suite of features. It was customer service for a persistent problem. The basic requirement for a telephone system is that it allows me to make and receive calls. For 12 months, we were unable to receive call from many local people. I was told that it was not the fault of 8X8 and to contact our old provider, Verizon. Verizon said they had ported the number and that was all they could do. We have switched to 3CX. Within 2 days, the local contact was able to trace and resolve the problem. Anyone can now call. My experience shows that 8X8 is not willing to help solve a serious problem. I should also add that they offered no compensation for this issue. I cannot recommend 8x8.

I signed up for this service because of the good reviews from voip review. I have a business with 8 phones. I was told that if i had a fast connection then i wouldn't have any problems. I invested $5000 in a new network when we moved offices and we have a 5MBps dedicated connection. It took a few weeks for our phone number to be ported. Customer service was friendly but never fixed problems even though we had many support tickets and they were escalated to top level support. The phones that they recommended were the GXP 2000's and they are of cheap quality. We often have echo's and occasionally get disconnected. We have to reset our phones frequently to avoid problems. The main complaint i have is the quality and reliability of calls. The quality of my cell phone calls is much better than my voip ones. I just tell people to call my cell to avoid being disconnected. Overall we saved money on the service but more than payed for it on our network and time lost. Use a reliable provider or standard service
