MagicJack!! sounds like a perfect gadget to help people save money.

Yeah! It really sounds like a trusted gadget after all the media reviews and all kinds of excellences. However, I bought one with 2yrs service; its marketers really impressed me as many other people, but it's the BIGGEST SCAM of all time. I know and heard many people who bought this gadget and they also have same or worse experience than I do.

I haven't seen or heard not even one happy person who used MagicJack. Why is that? This product is a WASTE for your money. "DON'T BUY IT, DON'T LISTEN TO THIER ADVERTISERS; it's just marketing and business.

DON'T LET THEM FOOL YOU and SEARCH FOR CONSUMER REVIEWS before you get it" This product doesn't have the sound quality you expect, and you will get upset most of the time because it's like using a cellular phone with no signal. The quality and its customer service are bad.

I decided not to use it anymore even though I lost a lot of money instead of saving. Remember, you get what you pay for and cheap products or service mean worthless quality.

As soon as i plugged the *** thing in i lost all sound from my PC speakers, after a couple of hours on Magic Jack"s live chat i still do not have any sound from my PC speakers.

The phone itself works ok but it can be a bit crackly, i would not recommend this product to anyone.


Still, at the end of the day you need a "special" computer to use your phone! On top of everything you ALSO have to have "special" internet??!!!

This is far from free cheap phone service, this is a scam. It should just plug into the wall and work like my phone does now. So this cheap phone cost hundreds to thousands upfront just to use thier crummy $20 part!!!!!!

Then pay the re-ocurring "special" internet fee EVERY MONTH! This is in NO WAY FREE.


To all the people who complain about Magic Jack all I can say is most if not all of their problems are probally due to ignorance, lack of common sense, low IQ and stupidity. It is the best thing I've seen as yet for ease of use and a great way to save money.

It is truly magic. And i don't work for Magic Jack!


Magic Jack works great for me for voice calls, and I use it with the same computer I use for everything else. My only complaint is that it doesn't work well for faxing - which was the primary reason I wanted a phone line other than my cell phone. I frequently have to attempt a fax 5 or 6 times before it will go through.


Magic Jack is the best VOIP I have seen besides being very cheap.

Yes you need a "Special" computer for it, so what!

I use my old 1998 laptop for it, and just for magic jack, that is it! I leave it on all Day and night. It does not affect my electric bill at all. You don't need a special internet, just as long as it is not Dial-up.

My advice is, go to ebay and buy an old laptop or thin client pc for less than $100 and leave it on all day and night, Magic Jack will work super good!


What a ripp off. Had I known you have to use a PC computer to make it work I would never had bought this junk.

Why do I need a "special" computer to use the phone. It should just plug into the wall and work like my phone does now. On top of everything you ALSO have to have "special" internet??!!!

This is far from free cheap phone service, this is a scam. Be warned.


I used one of these things for the past year, and I've been through it all. I'm a computer tech, and it has been all I could do to keep it working.

If you have one that works and it suddenly develops problems, then you either have a virus/malware, or your operating system is degrading. It's a commonly known fact that all Windows operating systems are subject to program degradation. When this happens with Magic Jack, your only recourse is to kiss all your favorite files goodbye, format your hard drive and reinstall Windows.

I'm speaking from experience, cause I just had to do it tonight. Now my Magic Jack is working fine, but I lost over 100 movies to fix it.Gues it's time to buy a solid state drive for my OS and just use the SATA for storage ;)


:eek pleaseeeeeeeeeeeee.I had att voice over for a year and it suckedddddddddddd.I only use magic jack for a extra line....installed it made a call and it worked like a charm.not 1 att was 35 a month..helloooooooooooooooooooooooo19 bucks?i could care less about their customer service..for 19 bucks what do u cant get english speaking on att and you *** at magic jack :upset


Incoming calls are usually good, outgoing calls are usually bad for clarity, echoes, beeping, screeching, (the other party hears these). I tried dialing from the softpad onscreen and it seemed to help, but actually with all the testing and troubleshooting I have done with this over the last year I think it just has sporadic good times because it is mostly horribly bad Most of the time.

It is a good answering system for an empty office.. :(


the first year I had MJ, it worked great so I renewed for 3 years and since then it has been ***. I have a new high end computer also.

I have spent hours online with techies to no avail. Every call within US or Canada breaks up so bad no one can understand us.

I would not recommend this product to anyone!! :(


On line service is ok , but they are not able to fix the problem . I can only get about 1 out of every 5 words spoken . I have customers tell me each time I call they can't understand what I am saying (In English) this is one BAD product


Just purchased Magic Jack. Holy cow, this works great.

Grabbed Verizon by the nose and threw them and their poor customer service out the door!!!! You must have an up to date computer.

All you complainers still using your Epsons wake up!!!!! :grin :grin :p :zzz


Magic is good for the USA but it not good for International calling. A phone card does a much better job.

I have a Magic Jack. The sales people are not very truthful about the product

I've had mine for over a year and works perfect! Gave 5 of them for Christmas gifts this year and EVERY ONE of them works great!!

Sounds like someone didn't read the instructions prior to use!

Can't wait for the new unit that works on cell phones!! Have already pre-ordered it!


When I first hooked up magic jack, the sound quaility was terrible. I used the USB connections on the front of my computer.

After a few days of bad sound quality, I reconnected my magic jack to the USB connection on the back of my computer, sound quaility was perfect, as good as any other land line. It seems that the power through the USB connections can vary on the same computer.

Another tip, instead of connecting a phone to the magic jack, I connected a telephone cord to the magic jack and then to the nearest wall jack.

It activated the rest of the phone jacks in my house so now I have multiple lines hooked up to my magic jack. :grin


Best phone product I've ever used.Hellooooooooooo. :)


i have magic jack and to be honest for what i paid its great sure i dont have the best quality connection sometimes but restarting the program works fine for me. plus 20 dollars a year is nice for a landline. If you add magic jack for your house calls and virgin mobile for your cell service its a great way to save a ton on phone service.


LOVE IT........It is just another VOIP phone. How hard is that to figure out! Get smarter people :zzz


Sorry, I didn't create a angry face on that last post. Thought this used BBcode and made a sad face, but...


It is not so good on a wireless card? Well, that is one small drawback-I would need to hit OfficeMax for a 54.00 wired card connection and so would the majority of owners of new Computers, I suppose :(

If I own only laptops with wi-fi, which 99% of all PC's are going to, I have a huge problem.

Can I put a wired card into a laptop? And what will Magic Jack do with bluetooth wi-fi?

And, what is this rumor I hear, that if Magic Jack performs an upgrade, it automatically changes your phone number, without your permission?! That is a really bad one, if it is true.
