8 x 8 is charging me $740 to cancel service. I have been a customer since 2017. Needed to cancel as my business closed for Covid 19 They where horrifying to speak with about this. They had 3 different amounts then landed on the $740 being the most. This had nothing to do with monthly charges, as those where always automatic and up to date. This is a totally made up number as they can not produce a contract. They tell me to reference small print. The small print is not clear- and they cant confirm that was even there with I started service in 2017. There is nothing about an amount for a cancelation fee in the small print. The whole thing is criminal and fraudulent. You can't even get a professional on the phone. They where all emotional and escalated. One even laughed at me. This is beyond traumatizing. I didn't know stuff like this still happened. Please- I will do everything I can to protect other small businesses from this horrifying company. Please- there are many other VOIP companys- pick any of them but 8 x8- and please ask them about hidden fake contracts, and cancelation terms.

"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

I contacted them about their overseas service, they assured me (more than once and on more than one phone call) that I would pay the going rate per country. Instead they went through a ship and charged me an outrageous sum of Thousands of dollars. I refused to pay. I have perfect credit, but willing to take this hit on it. I am careful to have everything in place and check and double check their policies. When they refused to provide anything in writing, I should have run. Glad to see they are out of business!!!!!
