Anyone use this device? From what I heard, it's $40 for the first year and $20 each year after that, gives you unlimited phone service. Just want to know how the call quality is and whether the service is good. I don't want to keep paying hundreds to Comcast, even though the phone service is good.

I have it, it's not good as VOIP or dial up.

You also get clicking noises through the phone.

it is recommended that you get DSL or Cable when using. Also if you are browsing the web and chatting through the majicjack, that clip noise gets much worse.

Not bad for $1 a month, but I would rather use free google calling, VOIP or lan line w/ your local phone company.

Tip: Also your PC / MODEM needs to be rebooted at least once a month, maybe even more if quality lacks. As I said, its ok, but nothing to WOW about.

I saw them at my Walmart (in the "As seen on TV" aisle).
They were 39.95. It said the first year is free and every year after that is 19.95.
It also said to take it with you when traveling (especially out of country) because you don't need long distance phone cards, etc. My DH said, "you still have to have a computer with internet. I was going to send one to my sailor son to use. He said no!!
Let me know if you like it.

Check out www.ooma.com. My son and family just bought the system for $200 and they love it. We talked to them the other night and the voices came across so clear that we had to turn the volume down. From what I understand you buyt he system and then you have no monthly unless you get a second line and then you pay $100 a year for a second line, if you do get the second line you can also use it to receive faxes. We're considering this for my business.

I had it and the quality stinks. But its pay for what you get. I had VOIP through Comcast and the quality was much better. I wouldnt use it for business but for unlimited long distance to friends and family might not be a bad idea if your on a budget and talk alot.

My Father got majic jack at least a yr. ago, or more. He' a pretty smart guy, and extremely patient, but found it more than difficult to use! As a matter of fact, he tried numerous times & was always unable to even get it to function. Can anyone provide a recommendation for a good, low cost internet and/or TV connect (besides Comcast, Century Link, Dish Network)??
