Installing the Magic Jack is very simple. When you receive your package in the mail, open it up and you will have three items: the USB plug-in device, a short USB extension cord and a telephone cord. Plug the device into your computer's USB port and it will automatically start downloading and installing some software that you need to be able to make calls. During this process you will be asked which area code you prefer to use with your assigned phone number. You will also be asked for your address. This is for using the 911 option. Make sure you always keep your address up to date in case you ever need to call 911 for an emergency.
If the device doesn't fit in the area where your USB port is on your computer, then you can use the extension cord that was included in your package to hook up the device. Another option is to use an a/c powered USB hub to plug it into. Using an a/c powered USB hub is recommended over using the extension cord, as it will save you from having some problems in the future.
You will also be able to visit the official website for this voip phone if you are having problems getting it to work all of the time. There are downloads available that are called "magic fixes" that will help the device work better with your computer.
Now all you need to do is to plug in any regular land line type phone into the device. The phone line that came with the device is best to use as it is recommended not to use a phone cord that is over 6 feet long. This is all it takes to install Magic Jack so you can start making free long distance calls.

why does magic jack plus want my credit card number ?
i bought a magic jack plus at wall mart and now i tried to install it , but at the end they are asking me for my credit card number .
i paid $79.99 for it at wall mart , so why does magic jack want my credit card number ?
For future automatic payments like mine does.
Is the Magic Jack Plus available in Canada?
and if you don't have a credit card how can you access this service after you buy the Magic Jack or Magic Jack Plus?
Yes it is available. You need a credit card to use. They don't accept paypal, cash, cheque or internet banking.
I will be traveling to India and need help with communication to USA?
I am trying to figure out the best and cheapest way to communicate with my family while in India. I will want to call on the phone, so I didn't know if someone has experience with this or not that can help me. I've read about Magic Jack Plus, and Mobal International phones. I also use Sprint and have an Iphone 4s and will also be bringing my Macbook. Any suggestions would be very much appreciated.
Not sure about Iphones
Get a cheap gsm phone and buy a sim card once you arrive in India, calls are very reasonable
Buy a wireless "dongle" for internet access, I am paying 500 Rp a month with Reliance and the speed is ok, and good enough to use skype with.
Magic Jack Plus: Can you use it with different ISPs?
I live in the USA but my work takes me to three different businesses in El Salvador that have their own computers and high speed DSL. I just bought a Magic Jack Plus still in the wrapper, unopened. I haven't opened the wrapper or activited the Magic Jack plus...need a big question answered.
I want to leave my laptop and home and just carry the MagicJack plus. Will the Magic Jack Plus work if connected into the different routers at each of the businesses I visit? Or does the Magic Jack Plus have to be configured and dedicated to one router and ISP?
First you have to activate it with a laptop then you could connect it to any router but when you travel many place offer wifi and you would need a laptop. Some routers block some port so if it a home system vs a office you will have better luck.
Anyone out there thinking of buying a Magic Jack?
BEFORE you do, read carefully. We bought one, yes it saves money BUT...I am NOW noticing changes, of course since I bought it, when you call long distance, this is random, you hear a message...You are on a conference call, you need to BUY a prepaid card......it is a random thing. AND if you are thinking of buying the Magic Jack Plus, the one you can use without a computer, you need a router with a minimum of 5 ports, or the Magic Jack Plus will NOT WORK.
No, I have comcast phone, internet, and cable for $100 a month. Magic jack has problem every now and them, because it's a internet based phone sevice.

Should I buy a magicjack to reduce my phone bill?
who has ever purchased a magicjack?
It is a decent device to save costs on long distance calls, or when calling home from another country to save on international minutes - but there are drawbacks to the service (not to be misleading, calls to US and CAN are included, if you bring it out of the country you can call back to thee US and CAN for "free") http://nyphonejacks.blogspot.com/2011/06/rural-carriers-finally-catch-on-to.html
i would not use it as a phone line replacement, but rather to supplement service that you already have
I made a review of the magicjack service a while ago after i tested the service out http://nyphonejacks.blogspot.com/2009/12/magic-jack-review.html
you may also want to look into http://www.nettalk.com/ it is $10 more per month than magicjack but does not require your PC to be on and connected to the internet - although magicjack has recently come out with something similar called magicjack plus...
If one were to choose, would it be Skype or Magicjack? Does the computer have to be left on with Skype too ?
I am not trying Vonage which costs the same as regular landline.
Vonage does NOT cost the same as a land line... I do not know how you came to that conclusion...
Vonage = $14.99 first 3 months... Then $25.99 afterward... That is the total price, period - and that includes calls to over 60 countries...
With a land line you would pay at minimum $30 plus taxes and fees which would make your bill more close to $60 for just unlimited domestic US/CAN calling...
Magicjack is $20/yr requires your PC to be on and connected to high speed internet... It is worth the money that it costs... But lately people have been complaining that they can not call certain destinations with magic jack, and there seems to be no real answers from their tech support that is only provided with instant messaging from their website...
Skype is actually a little more expensive than magic jack - and requires you to have your PC on and connected to high speed internet and use a headset and mic to make calls... You can purchase a USB phone, or a skype phone that does not require you to keep your PC on all the time, but these devices/phones can be rather expensive...
Nettalk recently came out, and has similar pricing to magic jack, $30/year but the difference is that it does not require your PC to be on, so the extra $10/yr that this device cost is easily recovered from the amount of electricity that you will conserve by not needing your PC to be on all the time... I have not yet personally tried this service, so i can only tell you of its existence and not provide a review of its service quality...
I wont even bother discussing ooma with you - because the "free lifetime" service is not really free $250 for the device then you can add premier service on top of that for $125/yr or you will still have to pay about $15/yr for taxes and fees...
EDIT - just read the other answers - magic jack does NOT support LNP so you CAN NOT keep your existing number with magic jack....
curently trying to change my home phone service?
Trying to change my home phone service cox service is really killing me and need help ,i know how most phone services looking through online can be scams ,but is there anything out there that's legit .is vonage and powerphone good.
You have many choices depending on where you live.
There are one-time equipment charge phones with monthly taxes and small fees:
but you need a good high speed internet.
Some people expand their cell phone, and end their home land-line.
There are 2 kinds of magic jack, on a startup and annual fee
There is the old wired AT+T, or whoever deals with your wiring.
And, internet phone Skype, that only works when on.
There are fiber optic cable and internet like Fios.
Here is one web site that talks about some of them:
You basically can only browse various reviews. For anything using internet, the service speed is a factor, and if using a computer, whether the computer is turned on, service speed, and computer components speed are all factors.
Everything is legitimate, though some give better results than others. I can't say which is the best, because it is usually about other factors in your connection. I didn't like magicjack, but that was with an old laptop.
How does magicjack work?
It's a small VOIP company, that allows you to make calls on your internet connection.. You must leave your computer on to make or receive calls. They also have a Magic Jack Plus, which allows you to plug into your modem or router, so you don't have to leave your computer on. Many poor reviews...Lousy service, no Customer Support..!! A good, fast internet connection helps..
How do you make a phone number?
You have to get a magicJack and pay a little extra, still the far lowest cost compared with other options and you can still text using this* http://www.google.com/ig/adde?moduleurl=inform.com/feeds/texting-and-mms but you need to make iGoogle sign in first.
* all you need is a pc to text there, assuming you know the text-to phone numbers... No magicJack needed for that.
Back to MagicJack:
Cost around $50--60 for first year and 19.95 or less each following year, no limits to time and calling within USA.
DSL connection at 1.5 to 2 Gb/sec or better will work FINE always.
Bear does not recommend lower speed.
You can get "dry loop" DSL (no company phone) from some ISPs under $50/month if you want FAST computer access for all internet things.
If your family already has fast internet obviously all you need is to use the existing connection and service provider. But you'll have to see if your Wi-Fi connection to cable provider works, some companies sabotage majicJack as they want to sell their own phone service though I think that should be illegal because you have already paid for fast internet.
The best internet connections I've ever had were "dry loop DSL" and most phone companies will give you that, no phone required. So you use your pc and majicJack, nary a problem with speed for either one.

Magic Jack phone service has taken the world by storm, and it's easy to understand why. Everyone is seeking to save money in these difficult economic times, and this is one quick and easy way to accomplish that goal.
It is a revolutionary device that you connect to your computer to make phone calls over the Internet almost free. It allows you to get unlimited local and long distance phone service for only $ 20 a year.
If you are interested in this device but you still want to learn more before you buy, I encourage you to read some of the magic jack reviews that are available on the Internet. I found this to be particularly helpful, since this device may or may not work for you, depending on the quality of your Internet connection. These reviews can provide different pros and cons of the device and it can help you decide whether to buy it or not.
Personally, I use magic jack and I love it. I even bought one for my mom. I highly recommend it for anyone interested in saving money. I think this is an especially good product for college students. It will likely save the student or their parent a lot of money. Otherwise, this is a great way to save money for anyone with a high speed Internet connection.
Most people with complaints about this device complain about the customer service. Understandable, since it's chat only, and outsourced (likely to India). But the company has to make a profit too. Paying only $ 20 a year for the service, it's unreasonable to expect to have a $ 12 an hour customer service rep eagerly awaiting your plea for help.
The bottom line in my opinion is, based on my personal experience, great product, and great savings. That's the nutshell. And with that, this short article is complete.

Voip versus other Voip?
I am looking for a VOIP service to replace my current home telephone.
It appears that I have 3 choices, but at this point none of them appear to be exactly what I want. I want to be able to use VOIP on a traditional phone without requiring a computer 24 x 7 and without a reasonable (not extreme) level of knowledge.
Nettalk Duo appears to be a great service, but does not offer service to 519 area code.
MagicJack, requires a computer. MagicJack plus fixes that but it does not appear to be in Canada yet.
Voip.ms, it sounds like this is a can and will do anything or everything, but the website content is not useful to most individuals. I am pretty tech savvy actually, but I do not understand in any way how to use their service or even what it costs.
VoIP.ms is one of the finest and most popular VoIP providers in Canada. However, if you're looking to use VoIP without a good amount of knowledge about the technology, let me say that do-it-yourself VoIP (such as VoIP.ms) Is. Not. For. You.
Here are some of the things you will need to know, or be willing to learn, in order to use VoIP. Do you know how to wire VoIP equipment into your household wiring? Do you know how to disconnect the phone company's wiring at the demarc? If you use DSL, do you know how to wire a "home run" to your DSL modem? Do you have power backup for your VoIP equipment, router, and modem in case of a power outage? Does your VoIP provider offer a phone book listing, if you require it? Do other members of your household feel confident with basic network troubleshooting, if you are unavailable and have a VoIP problem?
Additionally, if you choose a provider such as VoIP.ms, also consider the following: Which VoIP equipment will you use? Do you know how to configure your VoIP hardware? Does your router support Quality of Service, to give VoIP priority over other internet traffic? If not, what router will you buy that does? Do you know how to configure it?
If you've a technical mind, I'm sure these will not even be a challenge for you. However, they will take time, especially if you haven't done them before. VoIP.ms is a ridiculously inexpensive VoIP provider, and if you have the time to spend, they're an excellent choice. You can learn a great deal from forums such as http://www.dslreports.com/forum/voip . There are plenty of VoIP.ms users there who will be happy to help you out along your way.
If this sounds like too much of a challenge, there are other options. Find out if your cable TV company offers phone service. If so, they're often a great cost-effective alternative to POTS. There are other VoIP providers that provide equipment pre-configured and offer a higher level of support. Some examples of these are AcroVoice (excellent support, you can deal directly with the owner if necessary, a smaller company) and Vonage (huge company with lots of resources, but with the dubious-quality support that typically follows large call centres.)
My opinion differs on one point from the other answerer. If you do decide to use the services of a company that requires you to purchase and configure your own equipment (such as VoIP.ms), don't buy your equipment on eBay, since it's too easy to get stuck with a counterfeit device. Best to buy a new device with a warranty from a reputable retailer such as NCIX, Canada Computers, FrontierPC, or Memory Express.
How to connect my VOIP phone to wireless internet?
I am using a VOIP phone now: the phone line is plugged into a modem provided by my phone company, then the modem is connected to the cable modem of my ISP. As I am going to move and my landlord will give me wireless internet (for free!), I will not have ISP of my own. Where do I connect my phone?
I found a good solution to my problem at magicjack.com. But it is not available in Canada, plus I do not want to change my phone number.
A better solution than magicjack would be a VOIP phone that connects to internet wirelessly. So it looks like a regular phone but without any cord (or maybe the power cord?). The internet comes from a nearby wireless router.
Does such a product exist? Please, I am NOT talking about the celll phone!
You could port your number to Vonage and use their V-Phone. Not as good a solution as magicJack but workable.
Many users are using a cell phone as their primary phone and using magicJack for making outgoing calls. BTW magicJack is available in Canada:
I bought mine from them.
Telephones, Television, Computer--what's the best service to go with for all?
This is '3-way complicated,' as I'm sure it is for everyone. You've got: 1. Your Telephone
2. Your TV Service
3. You Computer Service
With TELEPHONES: you've got the option of:
2. Cell phone
4. Magicjack for $19.95/year. My sister gave me hers because she
never used it. Magicjack works when it works, but darned if I can figure out how to KEEP it
working. It keeps getting messed up.
So right now we have the above three phone services.
--I have a Virgin Cell Phone, which only costs me $10-$15/month at this time (pay per minute). the Virgin phone at $10-$15/month is STILL less expensive than having a $30-$40 contract with Cingular or Verizon Cell phone or whomever. I need it for work, plus emergencies, but I usually use my land line whenever I can.
--I have a Landline, with unlimited calling, which is a real joy because you don't have to count the minutes you talk AS you talk (no weekend/weekday restrictions, no worrying 'free minute time"--if it's 9 pm on the west coast, then it's midnight on the east coast, etc... That is, unless the person you're calling has a cell phone, then you have to worry about their end of things). But the vast majority of my phone calls are out of state, given that I live on the PA side of the PA/NJ line and work in NJ--plus my family is in TX, CA, NY, Indiana AND PA. It's not like the old days when your job, your friends and your family were mostly local).
There's the option of 1. Cable, which we have at the moment.
Then there's: THE COMPUTER. Which we can choose to connect either to
1. Our phone service. DSL, I think. OR
2. Our TV service: Comcast.
Then there's something called FIOS--fiber-optic something--which they keep saying will be available to us in our area soon but they've been saying that for a long time and FIOS still isn't
We chose to connect our computer to our Verizon service because a few years ago, when we moved to New Hope PA and signed up, DSL was only $20 per month while Computer-through-Comcast was $40.00/month.
But what's the best way to go now? Should we just keep paying the bills to Comcast for TV, Verizon for landline and computer, Virgin for cell phone by-the-minute, and wait for FIOS to come along?
What are the rest of you out there doing? Is FIOS worth waiting for? My husband keeps talking about getting satellite TV, maybe because FIOS hasn't shown up in our area yet...
Whatever. Any information to help us think this through would be greatly appreciated.
Dish Network - http://www.sathookup.com/dish-network.php
Directv - http://www.sathookup.com/directv.php
Verizon DSL/Fios - http://www.FiosFinder.com
I recommend satellite tv and DSL/land line phone unless you need super speeds. I'm not sure if a VOIP phone (Vonage) will work over DSL - but let us know.
BC lower mainland. Anyone using VOIP they are happy with?
All I want a Vancouver phone number that will take messages and send to email.
NOT Shaw, Vonage--WAY too expensive and for what?
DigitalVoice I've had for 4 years just to keep a number and take messages. Usually it's not even plugged in.
All I need is a cheaper Vancouver phone number to take messages and send to email. Outcalling and log would be bonuses. .
For outcalling I use a US MagicJack where ever I am in the world and can get WIFI on my notebook computer. I can call all US and Canada for about 12 dollars a year--after first year price it's 59 for 5 years. Fabulous.
With Telus and AllDayTalk my cell is $16 a month all I can use in and out local calling.
So, any suggestions for digital home phone not needing computer on at all times?
Does Canadian MagicJack work like this?
Any feedback on TalkIt, formerly CanTalk9000? Can't quite get comfortable with them. Nearly signed up this AM but on top of all initial charges there's a 20 plus buck Fedex delivery charge. I'm so NOT impressed. 30 day 'FREE' trial but that's forfeited AND you have to plunk out return costs. Some free!
What about FreePhone? Anyone used that? I think it's computer on or no workie. Not too great but maybe that sort of service is my best alternative.
I want CHEAP as I really use the phone RARELY.
Please help. There has to be something I'm missing here. Got to be a great deal someplace.
Have you tried GV? It will give you a number to choose from available numbers in any area within US. If you can use 403 canadian number you are still good to use GV. Read the article for more details on using GV for outgoing calls as well. Not the best solution you asked but I hope it will be of some help.
Magic Jack USB VoIP Device. What's the difference between Magic Jack and Vonage?
I have Vonage, which is VOIP, but we pay for Vonage to have
our business phone numbers (4 of them) and pay about $50 to
$75/month for this and we love it. Plus, we have 1 bellsouth phone landline because we have a security system that requires a landline. I also have a Vonage V-Phone, which is a small USB phone that plugs into any computer with broadband connection. The V-Phone does connect
through our vonage account. I'm trying to figure out what the difference in Vonage and Magic Jack is? For Magic Jack, the video said you pay $40 for the usb device and
your calls are free. When I went to ebay to see prices for Magic Jack, the description says Magic Jack VoIP Free Calls To and From USA. What's the real difference??? The short video I was sent is here: http://www.magicjack.com/site/index.html
I use a MagicJack!!
Vonage you connect thru your modem, and MagicJack you connect thru the USB port, hence the computer gotta be on!!
MJ is not really a true VoIP....like Vonage or Packet8......they go right thru your modem....so the Computer doesn't have to be on "ON".....MJ goes thru your USB port....so is you turn your computer off.....no phone calls either....!
I have Packet8 as my phone and use the MJ as a second line....for 20 bucks a month its pretty cheap, and the E911 call is free.....they also have nice VM and features....!
You don't have to buy an expensive VoIP phone any cheap analog phone will do...!
MagicJack runs kinda piggy-back Ymax.......most ppl use GrandCentral with MJ....in case you don't get your area-code!!
I also took it with me on vacation last year in Europe.....and used it to call back USA with and US area-code for free!!

Magic Jack Quality
For US calls, with broadband access, the standard is strong total. International standard is erratic, plus appears to rely about global web connection speed. Many calls are crystal obvious, others harder to hear, yet all are acceptable.
Magic Jack Issues
There have been several concerns raised regarding help. Sales of the small VOIP device have far surpassed initial expectations, as well as the device is available to all degrees of computer savvy consumers. Initially, customer help has had trouble responding to issues. This appears to be improving.
Call standard is dependent about web connection standard. But, this might be the case for all VOIP applications, not only Magic Jack. If you never have at smallest a DSL connection, never try Magic Jack, you'll not be happy with all the results.

"Giving the Magic Jack as a Gift" - Technology - VoIP
In this day and age, most people have everything and do not need anything extra especially grandma and grandpa, or maybe your Mom and Dad, brothers and sisters who have everything. The Magic Jack is a great present for Christmas, birthday, mother's day, father's day, any day!
I was talking to some elderly people this past week who are on a fixed income and afraid of what cuts are coming next. Are they going to have to pay more for Medicare coverage for their benefits and where is that money coming from. While listening to them worry on how they were going to cut costs I asked them how much their telephone bill was. Most said, "I have a plan that is $ 45 (USD) a month." Do you have internet access and they said, "Oh, yes that is another $ 30 (USD) a month through the cable." I said, "How would you like to cut your phone bill down to $ 19.99 or $ 29.99 a year?" They said impossible. I then told them about the Magic Jack and Magic Jack Plus. I told them the initial layout was about 2 months worth of telephone bills but after that it was a one time of $ 19.99 or $ 29.99 depending upon the model they chose. One couple went to Walgreens and bought a Magic Jack. I helped them set it up and they could now call their relatives in other states and cities without the worry of long distance charges. They were extremely happy. They realized their computer needed to be on all the time but that was okay with them.
Another elderly woman told me that she did not want her computer on all the time, so she had to call and order the Magic Jack Plus. This was more expensive at around $ 76.00 and the yearly expense was $ 29.99 but she only had to plug it into her router and was able to make calls and talk as long as she liked without her computer being on. She loved it, as she did not call her relatives as she was trying to cut back and had not had a phone for years for calling long distance.
For Christmas this year, I am going to give the Magic Jack to my relatives. They will save on their phone bill annually and have unlimited long distance to talk to relatives that are in other states. There is no reason not to give this as a present if they have internet access and can follow simple directions.
Giving a gift that keeps on giving is an awesome experience. If it were a toss up to have internet access or a telephone, of course, the phone wins, but now there is Magic Jack that all but eliminates the phone bill and allows people to afford internet access and have a phone at the same time. Just think that for $ 45 (USD) the magic jack would save the person who received the gift annual savings each year. They have the first year free so their regular telephone charges would be eliminated. Even if they only pay $ 20.00 a month for basic phone service that would be $ 240 a year savings. The next year it would be a $ 220.00 year savings but they would have unlimited long distance and a phone to make and receive calls.
If you have a teenager going away to college, give them the gift of the Magic Jack so they can call home and keep you informed. Sure cell phones are great but who can afford them while paying for the education. Get them a cheap cell phone, pay by the month, so that they cannot over spend and have them use the Magic Jack for other calls when in the dorm. The Magic Jack and be forwarded to any phone number, even a cell phone number but be aware that cell phone charges still apply.
Thinking of giving a gift that keeps on giving. Think of the Magic Jack or Magic Jack Plus. Your relatives will be happy to have this gift and the savings each month.
