Nextiva Reviews

Message from VoipReview.org Staff: VoipReview has reason to believe that individuals or entities associated with or having an interest in promoting Nextiva have been attempting to post fake or otherwise inauthentic reviews in order to artificially increase the overall review score of Nextiva on VoipReview.org. We have unpublished reviews that we’ve confirmed are fraudulent, and we continue to investigate all of Nextiva’s reviews. Please take this into consideration when researching VoIP providers. We are committed to ensuring the integrity of all of our user reviews.


Nextiva has changed business phone service for good; Nextiva's phone service combines high-quality service with incredible technical support — and you can keep your arms and your legs. One of the best in the business today, Nextiva delivers powerful communications capability with simplicity and ease of use.

Nextiva has two basic phone plans: Connect and Nextiva Office. Both have multiple scalable options: as you increase your calling capabilites (for instance, expanding from 1,000 minutes a month to unlimited minutes) your monthly flat rate increases. But that’s it: there aren’t setup fees or contracts (that is, unless you want one; like most other VoIP providers, Nextiva offers a discount to encourage you to sign a contract).

No matter what plan you choose, Nextiva will load your plan with useful features. Even Connect 100 (100 minutes for $8.95 a month) offers 10 virtual extensions, along with cell phone integration, follow me features, advanced voicemail features and more. Plus, Nextiva offers a wide variety of helpful customer support options — including US-based support.

Nextiva also offers efax and SIP trunking service.

Taking a look back at what my office and I went through during Sandy, I'd like to share how valuable Nextiva was during the tough time. They deserve 5 stars across the board.
I'm an attorney and have clients throughout the Northeast as well as in California. Having lost power, gas, Internet, and lots of other things, my home and office phones stopped working. As soon as I noticed this, I called Nextiva and they recorded a special message for callers to our main office phone, letting them know about Sandy and what was going on. They also forwarded our direct line numbers to cell phones, so when people needed to reach us directly, they were able to. This was a huge relief and our calls weren't going to busy signals. No other service I have for my company was as smooth and helpful as Nextiva.

-I used reviews and phone calls to each company in order to make my choice on who to use for my body shop phones. Make sure to buy the phones from them. I don't know how it would be if I bought them from Amazon or someplace else, but I do know that when I got Nextiva all I had to do was plug my phone into the Internet walls and they started working. Like I said above, the internet service made a big difference for me. Clear was not a good option and because it was a wireless connection, the line would cut out sometimes. Now with Cox everything is much better. The technical service people from Nextiva have always been good to speak with too.

-It was easy for me to make the switch and it's been worthwhile.
-When I started Nextiva I had Clear for my Internet service. The quality wasn't good, calls would be choppy and sound weird so I had to switch internet services. As soon as I started using Cox everything has been better. The internet company made a big difference.

Of all the decisions we've made for our small business in the seven years we've been operating, Nextiva was by far and away the most regretful and damaging. If I found a genie in a bottle, I would have only one wish: That I had never heard of Nextiva! We could NEVER in a million years recommend Nextiva.

Technical support is here in the United States and they pick up the phone quickly. Also, the representatives mean well.
Technical support personnel often provide an incorrect answer and will send us down the wrong road to resolution. I sometimes need to speak to several representatives before obtaining the correct answer. If you happen to get a representative who is knowledgeable and can resolve an issue, great. If not, you're in for a rough go. We have experienced numerous dropped calls in which customers either could not get through to us or the call would go dead during a conversation. In many instances, a customer would have to call back two or three times before getting through. It took Nextiva over a year to resolve our problem (we hope!), and we were told that the problem was with the service providers they use. I have probably logged a hundred hours on the phone (no exaggeration!) with Nextiva technical support personnel over the past year. It has been a horror show!!!

I purchased Nextiva in August for a new business I was launching. After purchasing 5 phones and numbers, I promptly received the items and would get phone calls and emails from them...checking in to see how my service was and if there was anything they could be of help with. A few weeks after signing up, my partners and I decided not to move forward with the business. Therefore we had no use of the phones and phone lines. After being charged by Nextiva for two months of service, I remembered that I needed to cancel. I called Nextiva this past Friday to cancel service and the lady I spoke with was helpful, understanding, and effective. Even though I was significantly out of the 30 day cancellation window, she recognized that I had not used any of the service and offered to refund all charges. This in itself is deserving of this review and I feel like this is something not many companies would do for a customer. Getting all my money back is nice but it's about the principle, no other vendor I've dealt with for establishing this business has or would do the same thing as Nextiva did. This was beyond ethical and as a business owner I appreciate seeing this.

Nextiva is deserving of 5 stars as I've been a customer for a year without any major complaints. The service has always been on and working right. I hope my pros above do a good job of sharing my view. Having Nextiva for phone and fax service has been great.
Sincerely,
Rebekah
(a Nextiva customer for many years to come)

Able to connect anywhere. Calls come calls to my cellphone anywhere I am in the world. Faxes get sent to my email inbox. Voicemail messages come into my email and I can check them via the attachment file. I've been able to block numbers that I don't want calling me. Customer service is always helpful. A great example of what customer service for telephone companies should be like these days. International calling rates are lower than my previous provider. Most countries I dial are 1 to 2 cents per minute. I've been able to make and receive phone calls via a soft phone on my computer. I prefer having the ability to change settings from the online portal and use it on occasion.
The interface can use a 2.0 facelift. I can only pay with credit card, PayPal is not an option.

I would recommend Nextiva. The fact that customer service is helpful and friendly, they're made my experience positive. I shopped around before signing up with them and in my first few months with the service, I'd say they exceed any other phone company (in every category). While I wrote a few cons about Nextiva, none of these are problems I'd really consider significant. The five star ratings I've given are well deserved.
Please note that I've been a Nextiva client since the beginning of this summer, so my experience may not be as thorough as others. Yet, if this type of service continues I will surely use their phone system for many years to come and gladly recommend everyone I know to them.

The telephone customer service is helpful and quick to answer the phone. The phone system is great once it's setup. Pricing is low and fair. International calling rates are charged per minute and low. Features such as getting calls forwarded to my iPhone.
Purchasing phones in order to use the service. I couldn't use my Avaya phones with them. Each phone was $100, which can add up. Getting setup on your own is somewhat of a challenge. I consider myself tech savvy, but had to call support in order to get started. As I mentioned above, the customer service is helpful. I'd consider this a small point. Nextiva deserves 5 stars for all the categories above but I'd rate them 4 for the setup. My setup call took approximately one hour. There's no on-site technician service. All help requires a phone call to their customer service department.

Lost half my calls

I lost half my calls for four months, they tried to help but I had to educate their staff on some of the finer points of VoIP and Asterisk usage, they were pretty uneducated and never fixed anything. I switched to them because I wanted phone support, and I have since moved to Sipstation, which saved me a lot of money per month and works much better.

Friendly (but useless) support
I lost about 50% of my phone calls for 4 months! The customer support is friendly but NEVER resolved ANYTHING and NEVER returns calls or FIXES ANYTHING.

Prior to selecting Nextiva as our phone system provider, I setup test lines with a handful of hosted VOIP companies. As the CTO of a healthcare data solutions company, it was vital that I selected the best phone system for our offices. I spent an entire day for each phone system working on setting up and learning the systems. All in all, most companies shared similar features and prices.
Nextiva stood out from the rest when it came to call quality and helpfulness of the technical support agents. The latter is something I value, but at the end of the day the line quality was most important for me.
I can see that some aspects of these phone systems can be a bit challenging for a non-technical person. However once the phone system is setup and working, there's very little management required. The phones simply work, as phones should. To be frank, I've accessed the control panel interface no more than 3 times since February.
Having had experience with the Cisco 504G and Polycom 550 for our offices, I'd recommend the Polycom model phones. They've been robust and the handset call quality is slightly better with the Polycom phones. One caveat, the Polycom VOIP phones are pricey.
Without any sort of doubt or hesitation I'd recommend Nextiva. It was a great choice to select them as our phone system provider.

Each person I've talked to has been kind and smart. I spent at least 2 months reading and learning about voice over ip phone system companies before I signed up with Nextiva. This gave me an advantage when speaking with each company and finding what's the best fit for me. Since my Allstate agency requires certain configurations,such as special after-hours calling. I made sure Nextiva can do and has done everthing I need. There are 5 people in my office and we live off of our phones. The fact that Nextiva made the switch from my Toshiba phones to theirs so easy, deserves this top notch review.

The best deal for a phone system. I shopped around, did research, read blogs, reviews, called companies and Nextiva has been the right choice. Considering how old and bad my old Toshiba phone system was, this has been a tremendous change for the better.
Nextiva was a tad bit more expensive than the other companies I considered. But I decided to move forward with them because they seemed (and are) the best. Having no contracts was a bonus, but the Nextiva phones cost about $4 more each month.
