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 had switched over to VoIP for my business to save money on my phone bills. I regret having switched as the network is unreliable, the quality is poor, and we're having to use our cell phones to call customers back as they can't hear you! It has been very frustrating for my staff who have had to call customer service numerous times (not a quick call either) with complaints of all or some phones being down, or the sound quality being poor. I would not recommend any business to switch to this service!

I have used verizon for 8 months and have tried 4 times working with their customer service to eliminate an echo that is heard by an incomming caller but it is still there. I have FiOS (Fiber Optic) so connection speed is certainly not an issue. I have also had unexplaied calls going to voicemail instead of to our phone or our voicemail (and yes I have the number of rings maxed out and our home answering machine set at 4). In addition, Verizon makes you dial your own area code to make local calls. I have not asked but am wondering if they will allow you to change the calling codes within the VOIP converter to eliminate this issue. I went with the service from Verizon thinking a large company would provide decent service but at this point I am going to use this site to identify a better provider.
