Never Pay a Phone Bill Again!!!

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Burnet

I'm sure many of you are in the midst of finalizing your 2008 business plans and going over your budgets.  So, I thought I'd share with you an amazing little product that could save you hundreds, even thousands of dollars on your phone bills.

I just ordered this wonderful product that was referred to me by a friend, I am so excited about it that I just couldn't wait to share it with you all. 

MagicJack


Magic Jack is a new service that gives you a number, voicemail, call waiting, caller ID, etc. and a nifty little phone jack. It is a USB phone jack that plugs into a computer and then the person plugs a phone into the other end allowing them to make or receive calls for free. All you have to do is buy the phone jack for $39.00 and $19.95 a year after that. 

I encourage you to check out their website to learn more:

I'm not an endorser by any means, but when I find something that will save you time and money, I will always share.

That's interesting... so I assume your phone connection is only as good as your internet connection, like Vonage?

I'm anxious to hear how it works, because I would be willing to replace my home landline with it, but not my cell.  In the sticks it's just to risky to limit yourself to one piece of technology.  Sometimes I can have my laptop with me all day but never have an internet signal, and the same with my cell....

Tygrhe - Be careful.  After reading your post, I went there and ordered one.  It arrived today.  I have had it for three hours and still cannot get it to work, and have yet to receive any assistance from them.  There are no phone numbers on the site, and the link is broken to the support site and forum.  All I can get is a chat support, and I am in that for the fourth time in the last three hours, and they transfer me to someone who never shows up.  Here is my current dialogue...

Chat InformationPlease wait for a site operator to respond.

Chat InformationYou are now chatting with 'Glenn'

Dale Campbell: Glenn, This is getting crazy. I have been trying to get help for at least 2 hours. Man, can you help me out? No one ever answers after you transfer me. I just wait and wait.

Chat InformationPlease wait while I transfer the chat to 'Richie'.

And I continue to wait for Richie.....

UPDATE - After about four hours and five tries, I finally got someone on the chat to help me to get it to work.  Took five minutes after I finally got them on the line.  So far, the product seems to work great.  They did not have number available in my area code, but I will make it work.

Tyghre, I'd like to know if this product is working for you.  I plan to purchase it but will not do that until I get feedback from you that it actually works.

Hey guys:

I had left some info here earlier above, but this is a good product and it does work!  I had those issues upon installation, but have had no issues since, and I use it a lot!!!  It would be better if they had a number in my area code, as it throws people off when they see a different area code on their caller ID, and in that regard, they would have to call long distance to call me on that line.  But if MagicJack has a number in your area code, it will be perfect for you.  I simply use it for outgoing calls mainly.  Shoot me an email if you have any ?'s

Wow!  I'm not ready to give up my landline since I have a cable modem (meaning power outages = no internet connection), but this would be perfect for a fax/outgoing calls only line.  Thanks for sharing!  I'm checking the website now and will be sharing this with friends and family.

I appreciate the update.  I am going to try it.  I was thinking of using it for fax / outgoing calls only.  Sounds like a deal.

Rosemary, I've been reviewing the site and it appears that faxing appears to be hit or miss and isn't supported (But I'm still going to try it).  You might want to check their area code list as several places aren't available yet.
