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.
***IF ANYONE HAS ANY EXPERIENCE WITH THIS MAN AND COMPANY AND HAS ANY IDEAS THAT WOULD HELP ME GET MY MONEY BACK, OR AT LEAST A LIVE PERSON ON A PHONE, PLEASE CONTACT ME!!! I REALLY APPRECIATE THE HELP!! ***** MY EMAIL IS: firstname.lastname@example.org HERE IS THE STORY: I was a faithful Voiceral user for years! I referred all my friends and family to this company. I told them that this company was small and personal and had great customer service! Yeah, the phone service and quality was shotty and I had to reboot at least once a day, and half the the person on the other end of the phone couldn't hear me, or said i sounded like I was under water. But I still defended the company. I told everyone, "oh, it's just digital phone, it has its quirks, but you cannot beat the price! And the customer service is great!" So after years of defending this company, I found MAGIC JACK! What a light in the darkness. Sure I had to change my phone number, but $20 cost a year for unlimited calling? You can't beat that. To my amazement the phone quality for Magic Jack is amazing compared to Voiceral.....so we decided to make the full switch. I called to cancel my Voiceral account.....no answer. Left a message, no return call. Left another message....still no response. After many messages left, and no return calls, I thought I would never be able to cancel my phone account with them. FINALLY, I got a call, from the very rude owner, telling me that my phone had already been disconnected way back when got my message! WELL YOU NEVER TOLD ME THAT! Then he tells me that he tried to issue me my refund (as I was on the yearly payment plan and he owes me 1/2 a years money back!!!) but there where problems with my credit card account. So he told me he wasn't aloud to re-issue it or something, so i needed to write him a letter saying that i will not try to claim back charges on my card, and then he will mail me a check for the back balance. BOY AM I STUPID! I was a nice trusting person and emailed him what he wanted because I figured that there are decent people in the world. Now, it has been over 2 months, and I still have no check for the money he promised me. I have EMAILS TO PROVE IT THAT HE SAID HE WOULD SEND ME THE MONEY! YET HE STILL HASN"T GIVEN ME A DIME!!!!! THe last 2 months of my life have been spend calling him every day leaving messages and emails demanding my money back, with no response!!!!! THIS MAN IS A CROOK! DO NOT TRUST THIS COMPANY!!!!! ***IF ANYONE HAS ANY EXPERIENCE WITH THIS MAN AND COMPANY AND HAS ANY IDEAS THAT WOULD HELP ME GET MY MONEY BACK, OR AT LEAST A LIVE PERSON ON A PHONE, PLEASE CONTACT ME!!!

Dave Convoy, who writes excellent reviews about his own (Voiceral) service, on this site is a liar and a thief. He has stolen my phone number, which I have had for 16 years. My guess is that he just doesn't want to refund any money..paid for a year in advance. He doesn't like to have to send replacement modems when one of his go bad because it will cost him money. He blames every problem with his service on someone else..me (client), other providers (Time Warner), crossed cables (ethernet cable must be plugged in wrong) etc. I have tried to get my phone number ported since the end of November and finally had to get a new number the end of January in order to have working phones from a new provider. Have filed with the FCC and hope to get results but that will take time. DO NOT even think of using this voIP service. You will regret it.
