Magic Jack took 6 months of aggravation to transfer my number | Magicjack in Boca Raton, Florida

After using and loving Magic Jack for years, it suddenly stopped working and i could not receive calls. I spoke with live chats on the phone for three nights for 6 hours each night and still no repair could be done on my magic jack plus that I paid $49 for. I decided to transfer to At&T instead of always having to use my cell phone to make calls. It took 6 months and a $35 fee to magic Jack for them to relinquish my number over to At&t. I have a friend who went through the exact same scenario with magic jack also. We are both relly upset with what we went through.

A message on my phone said "No Line". I did not have a dial tone and couldn't call out. I received incoming messages on my computer and could play them. I called the service number and talked to some heavy accented *** that I couldn't understand. I got to talk to a...

Absolutely Not Recommended to a Friend | Magicjack

1.0
Details
Over a five year period of being a customer I have now dropped three separate phone number accounts. The only way you can communicate with the company is via Chat. It is fairly obvious that English is not the primary language of any of the representatives that I have Chatted with. They could not get billing for these accounts moved to one date so that I did not have to string out my payments. They put a very annoying voice message reminder on your phone line starting about 2 months out from any bill due. You can't make a call until it stops, you can't get rid of it, and they won't take it off until you pay. The corporate is not even a USA one. There headquarters is in Israel. MagicJack, also known as VocalTec Ltd, has been sued four times. One was for patient infrindgement and another for defamation of character and fraudulent statements. Three fourths of the BBB complaints against the company are based on Problems with Product / Service. I had a recent dispute, one of several others, about $3 on my bill and they would not give me a credit for it. They lost a long term customer over a few bucks. If you are considering service, then I would suggest that you get what you pay for and you probably are gambling with your money.

Stealing my incomming calls without letting me know! | Magicjack in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Magic Jack intercepted all my incoming calls on the first ring and told callers they were my voice mail. But they did not give me any access to my voice mail and refused to do so unless I paid an additional 5 years in advance at $149.00 and a service charge of $199.00 to keep my phone number. They were holding several weeks of phone messages for that black mail. All who called me must think I am very rude for not returning their calls. The rsvps for our party this weekend were all lost and we have no idea how many are coming or what foods they are bringing! I called the tech people several times; finally the tech people sent me to a person in India who kept me on the line of over and hour promising to fix the problem and then told me he did not work for Magic Jack. He told me my computer was infected with Trojan Horses and he could clean it up for a cost.

I have never worked with such a horrible company, ever. They do NOT listen, they are trying to blame the internet service and i have done everything they have asked to get the phone to work. They keep giving me the run around and refuse to refund the balance of my service. I have been told that I need to get a new router for $$$$ so that their $ MJ will work. I have been told so many stories that I have forgotten which ones are in what order. I would NEVER purchase from this company again. I cannot recommend that you so so the first time. Run away, save yourself.

Service person caused problems with magic jack | Magicjack in Cartersville, Georgia

I called magic jack to add more time and person could not help me. He said I had errors on my computer and for $99.00 he would fix it for me.I told him I did not want him and I had someone I my house who could do it but he insisted that he had to do it. I said no and he hung up. After that I could not call out but someone could call in. I called back and they refused to help me. My phone was working fine until they came in the back door. I have dropped them and my computer does not have any errors on it that we could find.

Magic Jack stopped working - could not complete call though got dial tone | Magicjack in Owings Mills, Maryland

Could not complete call though got dial tone. Called MJ help line 855-325-4813. REc. voice recording helping other customers then after holding disconnected. Called back several times and got fax signal. I even called back on another phone number and got the same fax signal response. I would not recommend using this service, Magic Jack, if for any important line. I only use as extra phone. Previously, I had an issue with Magic Jack where I started with a plug inserted in the back of my computer so the computer had to be on to use the phone. Later I switched to an insert into my router. For the latter I paid for what I thought was 5 years service. But now I am being charged yearly for both. Caution, watch what you are doing with this company!
