Magic Jack Is Wonderful
Posted by on
LAS VEGAS, NEVADA -- I just got my Magic Jack and I have to say it really works great. A few times I called the phone ring was broken up so I hung up and redialed. It was then clear. I'm not sure why that happened a few times but I got a clear line when I called back. I only had a cell phone prior to this and sometimes a business will leave you on hold for a while so I needed somethng else. This is my answer! This device is going to put tel company's out of business. It's cheap, no monthly tax or payments. You know those gov taxes that are added on to your phone bill that no one understands.

This is great. I'm not associated with Magic Jack I just wanted to let consumers know this is worth buying.

From what I have read the device really does work. But unless the customer pays one of the higher service fees your PC will get flooded with advertising. Their software is designed to detect attempts to block the ads. If ads are blocked they will terminate service and no refunds.

I'm considering an alternative to my ordinary land-line - I'll check into this and some service called Vonage.

*** ALERT! ***

barcode46, you need to review this site before you get yourself caught in the Vonage trap!

Chuck, Vonage has found a way to separate a fool from their money.

I've heard some of these things are hard to set up if you're not very technical.
tnchuck100 on 2008-07-31:
barcode46, it's not so much the technical stuff as it is the complete absence of anything that could be called customer service. Their sole function is to collect money for as long as they can get away with it.

super, it is our duty to save as many as possible from the Vonage pit!

Chuck, best answer. No one, even newbies to their service seem to have a problem plugging a router in. How hard is that, right? It's the lack of customer service, the lies, the stealing and poor quality of service that keeps smart buyers away from Vonage.

Maybe "smart buyers" should lease it?

LasVegas, excellent review and info Magic Jack just may be the last nail in the Vonage coffin. Magic Jack is an excellent product and service.

Smart buyers should stay clear of Vonage. Why would some fool lease Vonage? That makes no sense at all, but hey do what ever floats your boat. They are nothing but bottom feeders stealing money from their customers now.

boy, I hope you have some statistical data and proof to back up that libelous claim. Guess I'll just keep my land line and not lease a car either - talk about getting money stolen.

Vonage is saturating our market with $9.99/mo offers. My wife said, "Maybe that's something we should look into?" Based on everything I've read on M3C, that idea went nowhere fast.

Doc, they are grasping for that last breath of air. Vonage's cost to have a customer for one year is higher than what they are taking in. Classic bad business, buy high and sell low. Put a fork in their rears, they are cooked.

Every Fool finds a greater one to take their money.

I know zippo about Magic Jack. Seriously, I thought it was something sold at NAPA. Looks like I need to educate myself, but Vonage was an instinctive 'no go'.

Make me glad I didn't invest in them, lose my backside and become bitter about it.

No one around here was ever dumb enough to invest in Vonage. There was an old fool of a member that used to believe the bait he was fed though.

super, are you talking about "that" guy?

Chris, we must be thinking alike, LOL.

LOL..confessions of a true loser.

Some people here in Florida haven't been so lucky. There was a report on the news yesterday (7/30/08) about how they drained someone's bank account.

MagicJack only works when computer is ON and does not work if computer is in "Sleep" mode.

And it takes a review to figure out the obvious? NH

Meaning that if the person's computer on the RECEIVING end is in sleep mode, they will not receive the phone call or have any indicator that they got a call.

Magic Jack Is Not Magic! It Is A Headache
Posted by on
Wasted about 3 hours giving magic jack a chance - got a chat once and then found out that it won't work with Mozilla and then IE7 failed also. Until they get the clinks out - don't try it unless you have a lot of patience over the next few years to get it start

Magic Jack is selling about 7,000 units a day. Guess every once and awhile someone will come along that it just does not work for. Try your cable company for VoIP, maybe they can help you out. Cablecos account for 80 percent of the 16.2 million Internet phone lines in U.S. homes, according to data from TeleGeography Research, which tracks the communications market.

Stay clear of Vonage as even Vonage has stumbled in trying to muscle in with Internet calling, often called VoIP (for "voice over Internet protocol"). Other Internet startups like SunRocket have simply disappeared, leaving customers scrambling to replace phone service. "VoIP has made and broken many companies along the way," says Jon Arnold, an independent analyst who follows the market.

Vonage has worked rock solid for me for better than 3 years now. You do have to be a bit tech savvy to set it up, but once you got it, it's pretty terrific. I've heard their support is a bit lacking though. Traditional phone service will soon be a thing of the past when you consider VOIP and Cellular service taking over the market.

Any child can plug in a Vonage router. Anyone with less tech skills than a child just might need to be tech savvy. The problems with Vonage are too long to list, law suits, poor customer service (if any), poor call quality etc. Vonage is getting it's clock cleaned by Magic Jack and others.

A lot of the new Magic Jack's customer base is coming out of the Vonage ranks. Stick a fork in Vonage, they are cooked. Just on M3C's there are over 1,500 Vonage complaints and Vonage has less than a 10% approval rating.
