Magic Jack Reviews

January 21, 2010

Magic Jack ReviewsI bought the Magic Jack telephone device about a month ago. It is great and I am no longer paying out a monthly telephone bill. It costs $40.00 to buy and the first year is included in the purchase price. After that, it's $20.00 per year. No monthly phone bill.


You need a computer because that provides your connection. It connects to a USB port on your computer and the telephone connects into the device. You have long distance and the caller's number shows on your computer screen. You can also put in names and numbers of family and friends just like a regular telephone.

I think this is great and it saves you so much money. I was paying $45.00 every month for my house phone and I didn't have long distance. This is wonderful for anyone looking for ways to control their monthly expenses. With the costs of everything lately and so much unemployment, this could be a big help to many.

I am thinking about buying a Magicjack. Can anyone let me know if you would buy it again?

Absolutely recommend a Magic Jack as long as you have a high speed internet connection. The standard Magic Jack requires a computer with a USB port to work but the "Plus" can be used as a stand alone device that allows you to plug your phone into the box or will also work directly off of a USB port of your computer the choice is yours.

I purchased the MagicJack a year ago, just sorry I waited so long. Initally I had a problem hooking it up without my computer, contacted customer service and in no time I was up and running.


Since then haven't had one problem, no different in sound quality, etc. from the years I had Time-Warner.

I have had MagicJack Plus for a year and like it very much. Quality is good and like having no monthly Phone bills. No sound quality loss at all.
Previously had MagicJack but did not like leaving the computer on all the time.

Does anyone have any experience with that phone service which uses an internet connection to work? It costs only a $20.00 annual fee. I think its called Smart Jack or Phone Jack.

I just wanted to know if anyone has tried Magic Jack phone service, and what they think of it? It is used through your USB port on your computer.
