MagicJack can be an attractive alternative to a land line, or a supplement to a cell phone. But be aware of the limitations before you buy. The device is unreliable and customer service is virtually non-existent. Also, MJ makes it's money on the add-ons, MJ+, changes to service, and extended subscriptions. In order to avoid unnecessary trouble/grief, consider the following:
* MJ requires high speed internet capable of streaming. Cellular/satellite internet users beware that MJ may be incompatible despite your connection speed. On dial-up? Forget it.
* The MJ+ does not work with network security features found in current DSL/Cable/routers. If you've purchased a MJ+ and get "error 42" or similar, just plug the MJ+ into your computer as you would for an MJ classic and be glad it's not a total loss. Otherwise, buy the MJ classic to begin with.
* The MJ device is prone to failure over extended periods. Stick to the one year subscription and just buy a new device every year. I'm on my second year with my current MJ, but am reluctant to push it a third year. Even at $40 for the MJ classic, it's still a good deal, anbd the old devices make great Xmas tree ornaments ;u).
* If your MJ does *** out in the middle of a subscription, you can forward the calls from that MJ to another phone number. A good thing to do a month or so ahead of transitioning from an old MJ to a new one.
* If you come to an impasse, think of your defective MJ as a $40 disposable lighter. If it helps, take it with you next time your out on the golf course and tee up. Or better yet give it to your abusive boss as a gift.
