Magic Jack Internet Phone Service

Andy G (Gadget),


20 Bucks a year --- Using a high-speed internet connection people can call any USA landline free using the Magic Jack. Do not buy online, just walk into a Walmart, Walgreen or Target and they are on the shelves.



I have not used this device, but I have seen enough to know there is a benefit to travelers to use this internet phone service.

Need
1. Computer
2. High Speed Internet Connection
3. USB slot on the computer available
4. Standard telephone to plug into the Magic Jack

This works from outside the USA and you can call the USA and receive calls.



Listen to Me
I have not used this device, but when I return to the USA next time I plan on buying this, on the other hand there may be huge problems. I am mostly worried that people by without realizing they need a computer and high-speed connection. I believe you can walk into an internet café and use this device; it should be cheaper than Skype.com. I am hoping I can use a standard headset and not need to have a telephone, if I need to carry a telephone I think this is too complicated.

Maybe in the future the telephone companies will put Skype and Magic Jack out of business similar to the Internet Access companies. These companies are resellers of bandwidth, they provide internet phone service because you are using the telephone companie internet access, these device are part of the food chain and below.

A quick google search for 'mini corded phone' and 'magic jack' shows there are very small phones available pretty cheap to plug into this for travel purpose. I also imagine you could unplug the hotel/ internet cafe's phone and plug it into the magic jack... if noone's looking...

It says here on this page a person can change the configurations and force the computer to use your regular headset.

I bought a Magic Jack when they first came out. Maybe they've improved but it didn't work so well when I had it. Instead of ringing like it was supposed to when a call came in it went straight to the voicemail. But that was about 2 years ago and maybe it's improved. Also the support was next to none. But as I said it could have improved since then. Now it did call out just fine so for a traveler's purposes that might be just what you want.

Estou em duvidas, se ele apenas utiliza a internet para fazer ligacoes telefonicas, ou funciona como modem de alta velocidade?

I have heard a lot about the magic jack Its the cheapest way to go with internet phone Its easy to travel with and take advantage of, It works with a normal phone or hand held head set.


.

With the increasing growth in the telecommuncation market many companies have made the switch to use a internet phone system, because of the reduction in cost for calls long distance and the ability to communicate with multiple people at the same time!

I have used the device, its amazing, I use it for my business because i do a lot of long distance calling. for those of you who have their own business and communicates over the phone a lot, magic jack will save you a lot of money. think about it you pay about $40/month for a land line phone and only $20/year sing magic jack for unlimited local and long distance calling.

you be the judge, its a no brainer

Ya the magic jack is awesome. I use it along side skype while traveling. My friend made it a whole 6 months in romania with it, he loved it.
