"Mid-Market" 8x8 customer since 2012 with 34 lines and 10 toll free numbers. I was hired in 2013. From the moment I was hired I was getting complaints about dropped calls, spotty call quality, and issues with the softphones. After cleaning up the network, I came to realize it wasn't us (or our 500Mbps DIA connection) it was 8x8. Constantly have had problems over the past five years. If you need support, expect long hold times (30 minutes +) and to have to start running the gauntlet at the base level of support. If, you can get the person on the other end to understand that you're in a higher tier of support, expect more hold time. It's incredibly frustrating considering hosted PBX/VOIP services are supposed to save you time and make your life easier. I'm constantly having to call 8x8 support due to not being able to call certain numbers. Their softphone app constantly crashes or interferes with other programs like webex, chrome/firefox, VNC, Lync, Skype, Hipchat, etc. and often causes issues with computer sound (running Dell optiplex and XPS in this office) forcing a reboot to restore sound levels. The "meetings" part of the softphone app is a disaster. It's so bad we just ended up using gotomeeting instead. The conference lines kept having a problem where if you called in with an iPhone people could hear you but you couldn't hear anyone else. Billing is absolute nonsense. My company's accounting team and IT got together with 8x8 trying to determine what we were being billed for and no one at 8x8 could actually tell us. it's been 6 weeks and we're still waiting on an answer. This company has been an absolute nightmare to work with. If you decide to be brave and use them, you'll regret it. Here's an image of their softphone desktop app (and the amount of time I've been on hold with their support team for yet another number that can't be dialed. You'd think calling from Austin to Anaheim would be easy, huh?) http://imagehost.phoenix-nest.com/?di=6154948616415
8x8 just gets the job done for us. A good phone system is one you don't have to think about much. It has all the features we need, and works well with our remote team on their smartphones. Haven't experienced any down time or customer service issues either.
***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: [email protected] 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.
