    Magic Jack What's the Deal?

    I've been hearing different rumors about this gizmo. Are you able to make long distance phone calls to other countries for free or is this just to the U.S.?
    Any and all info would be greatly appreciated!
    Thanks

    I'm trying to remember if my wife called me from Mexico or only I called her on that line. I know there were no extra charges.

    I confirmed with my wife that she didn't call me but she did call a few clients here in the US from Mexico using her MagicJack and did not have to do any International Dialing codes or have to pay long distance toll charges. I guess if she was using that line to call somewhere in Mexico she would have had to pay charges, but since she was calling the US she didn't have to.

    My parents have one of these things and they swear by it. Supposedly, any call to anywhere is considered a local call. International or regardless.

    I keep seeing the ad on TV but I've never really considered buying one...I have a cel phone and a few years ago I realized I just didn't need a second number.
    Stay out of it, dude.

    Don't you need an internet connection for it to work? Isn't it VoIP?

    pretty sure that's all it is...it's just a USB interface for your regular telephone.

    I use it for my home office. It works fine. The sound quality is a little less, but not enough to be an annoyance.

    You cannot transfer numbers to it as of yet, but overall I am very happy with it, you can't beat the price, and it is pretty convenient to be able to get your voicemails online.

    I was going to get it but you cant keep your previous phone number so I hear?
