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.

We signed up with VirtualPBX about 4 months ago. We originally were on a smaller plan since we only had 4 employees but as we have scaled up to 12, VirtualPBX has been able to seamlessly scale with us. Price point is unbeatable, service is reliable. Would highly recommend.

We were using Comcast's VOIP service for years, but were getting to a point where we couldn't add more lines to that service. I therefore started researching hosted PBX solutions and decided to sign up for three different ones and try them all out for a month before deciding. The three providers I tried were RingCentral, Ringio and Virtual PBX. In the end I went with Virtual PBX because they were the only ones that provided the ability to record all calls - which we need for training purposes. I ordered a couple of phones and was happy to see how easy it was to set them up. At first I had some issues with delays and dropped calls, but with the help from their customer support I discovered multiple issues with our network setup. Once these were fixed the quality of the calls improved and we had no more dropped calls. I only have good things to say about the technical support have received. It is important for anybody who is looking to use VOIP to understand that no matter which provider you choose the call quality will depend on the connection from the phone and all the way to the PBX. That means your internal network, your ISP’s network, and the VOIP providers network. My guess is that 95% of people’s VOIP issues are because of issues on the local network or with the ISP. Don’t underestimate the scope of switching your company’s phones to VOIP, do a pilot run to work out the bugs before you go big. Today we have over 25 phones running on Virtual PBX and are very happy with the stability, call quality, and cost savings over Comcast. @Karmaza B: What is a CLOUN? Sorry, but I really can't take your review serious.
