Love the phones, love the system, love the customer service! Having the ability to call our dedicated rep directly that’s familiar with our business and particular system has been a game changer. Nextiva has been invaluable in helping us bring our phone system to the 21st century.
I have 3 locations. Since signing…
I have 3 locations. Since signing up:
1. Spent over 100 hours of tech support on my end, maybe 1/2 of that on their end. Over 30 to 40 calls for tech support in months.
The phone audio cuts out for a few seconds then returns. Happens every single day. Not our first VOIP carrier, never had this issue. They were not perfect mind you but never as poor as Nextiva.
2. Your router may be an issue, WARNING! with their service you may need their recommended router and security SIP disabled.
3. Multiple websites for each piece of your technology, not clearly understandable on all different ways to do things like leaving a holiday message, changing sites for office hours, etc. They sent me to old one then new one and they are different, very different still cannot follow.
4. App cant get to work different user name and sign on …more issues on that and I am not even sure how to explain this one.
5. A sales rep that said they had 9 servers to Vonage having 3 so they are 99% up time, better service and more quality …been down twice in a few months and they just blame everyone else for them being down for several hours on two separate occasions. 100 Hours of my time on tech support.
6. Sale rep has not and will not call me back – I signed his contact and bought their Polycom phones. Refuses now to back his product and have made over 10 documented requests – HE WILL NOT CALL ME.
7. It has been the worst business experience of my life. They waived my first months charge, not even close to what this has cost me in time.
8. Tech Support – GOOD LUCK! Depends who you get and what they know, different answers a lot!
9. Cannot update my 911 address to my actual address. They tried, shut two locations down for the remaining day. Never received anything for that other than opps.
10. Not getting the HD quality sound promised too. They use different technology for the reps that call you verse what YOU get on a daily use I guess how is it they sound so clear but when you use the system in place it is not.
Very NICE people, but as stated my sales rep will not return my calls or emails. If you had that service – would you like them? He did send me an automated email asking for referrals.
No accountability, as far as I am concerned, when a sales rep is not required to speak with the person he convinced to buy his product. I would be very careful with them.
I am so exhausted from what is going on I really don’t understand this.
I am trying to leave but they will not let me leave without a penalty bill because I signed a contract, regardless of what they do to fix what is wrong on their end. Mom and pop shop feel with technology that sounds great when you call them, but not when you are calling your clients. That is how we have experienced this company, the technology they have and I am getting ready for the next step…
I want anyone with Nextiva issues to contact me because this might be a very large problem they said I am the ONLY client having this issue over and over — I do not believe that can be accurate. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to share your experiences.

Our company was born just…
Our company was born just a few years ago and is still a fairly small company. Not only has Nextiva’s phone system and features been very helpful in spreading and obtaining business, but they have made us look like a very professional company with the use of the auto attendant features as well as the call forwarding features. We feel easily connected to our customers and know that if there were to ever be problem we would have Nextiva right by our side. It feels as though Nextiva is constantly upgrading and updating their technology and communicating those changes with us and the rest of their customers. Overall very happy with our service, nothing bad to say about them.
If I had to describe Nextiva…
If I had to describe Nextiva in a couple words, I would have to say peace of mind. The technology and features they have are excellent. They have an awesome support staff that has been extremely helpful with all of my questions. Overall they are a very reliable company and seem to only be getting better each year. Would highly recommend them.

That said, many customers never need to make a customer service call after they activate their service because Nextiva is a dependable provider.
