MagicJack USBWhat comes in a USB stick and lets you plug a regular phone into a jack to make free high-quality phone calls?  Why magicJack, of course.  The magicJack USB device has a regular phone jack on the back into which you plug your phone and off you go.  The service rolls out in next month so you’ll have to wait until then to buy your magicJack.  You get full features like caller ID, call forwarding and waiting.  It’s not clear how international calls might be charged so you might still need Skype for that, and the magicJack service can’t handle 911 emergency calls, either.

  2. My magic jack is not working, and you instructions are not good enough. You should have some to call and get better info. How do I go about sending this back.

    I ordered my magic jack and I loved it so much that I ordered one for each of my children. We all love our magic jacks. The quality of the calls is as good or better than any other VOIP we have used. We plan on giving them to everyone we know as stocking stuffers this holiday season. I cannot think of a better gift than a wonderful money saver. I would say to anyone thinking about this product to put one on your shopping list. How could you go wrong? The install process is a snap and it works with your regular analog phone with any high speed connection. LOVE MY MAGIC JACK!!

  7. We registered our Magic Jack and had to choose an area code from another city. We were then given a new phone number. We tried calling our cell phone from our home phone but had to include our local area code to get the call through. Then we tried calling our newly assigned home number from our cell phone and the call doesn’t go through. What’s wrong?

  9. Dear sir,
    Two quick questions please…..
    1. Can only one phone in your house be
    plugged into the magicjack and work? We have
    one in our bedroom and one in the kitchen and one upstairs.
    2. I noticed both positive and negative
    comments on this website. What can you tell
    me about the negative comments?

    PLEASE respond! Thanks! PAM BURNS

    1. Only one phone can be plugged in the MagicJack device. I purchased one my self for home phone use and it works great. Since there is a limitation of a one-phone plug-in, my wife and I bought a 5 station cordless phone setup, where there is one base station and 4 satellite stations. The base station is the only device in this group that hooks to the phone line. We now have 5 handsets that share the line and they all work great, as long as our Internet is up and running fine. but this will be a requirement no matter what VoIP product you use

    My magicJack was working fine with my portable phone and suddenly today I can’t call using the phone keypad. If I use the on screen keypad the portable phone works fine. I substituted a standard corded handphone and it calls out just fine with it’s keypad. The portable phone works just fine on the land line.
    Regards,
    Ralph
