Has anyone in our area bought & used Magic Jack? It sounds like a good deal & reviews are fairly good... for the price anyway.

I tried it. They advertised that you could keep your phone line number but after it arrived and I tried to set it up I discovered it was not available in this area. Called them and they tried to con me into keeping it. They say you can cancel it within, I believe 30 days, but you have to go through hoops to do that.

I was not happy at all with them.

The nickname of this little device around the techno-geek world is "Tragic Jack".
If you like spam, you will love it.
That's how they make it so cheap is by having it spam you to death with advertisements.

First off you will need HIGH speed broadband, like 15meg. Forget that around here unless you have cable. Evin at that, it would be less costly to just pay for the long distance call. As for majic jack, the pros and cons are about equal. By the time I got bradband, I couldn't afford the phone so I thru it out and went with Tracfone. For my useage it costs about 6 bucks a month, but, 800 calls don't exist. I have a never used MJ. Becareful buying a used one. They say the original ones are being replaced, possibly at no cost.

You don't need Magic Jack to use your internet to make cheap or free phone calls, as long as you have high speed internet. It's called VoIP (voice over internet protocol). Magic Jack just uses the technology and charges for it.
Skype is a VoIP and it is free. If you have cable internet or high speed, you can try it:http://www.skype.com/

If you have satelight internet, no VoIP will work. It has something to do with how the signal has to travel and bounces. At least if you try it free, you aren't out anything when it doesn't work.
