I started using a Magic Jack this past summer. My cell phone had been cut off and I did not have a phone. Time are tough!
My mom and I usually talk everyday until my cell phone was cut off. But, given the choice between a cell phone and the internet I choose the internet. I can't be without the internet and if my electric got cut off I would probably rig up a solar panel just so I could stay connected to it.
Anyway, my mom wanted to continue talking to me every day so on my birthday she bought me a magic jack. It hooks straight into my computer by way of USB port. I will say that the magic jack is kind of hard for me to answer at times especially if I am surfing the web. I can always call the person back. In fact if I am surfing I just let my voice mail answer it. My computer has a lot of bugs on it and I know it has an effect on my ability to answer calls.I just close the internet or any open programs when I am ready to talk I can even listen to my voice mail on the computer because I get sent an email from magic jack when someone leaves a message with the mp3 file attached in the email. Everybody that I talk to regularly knows about my bugs on the computer gives me a few minutes to call back before trying again.
I hope if you will give magic jack a try it is good if you need another line and the very best thing about magic jack is the price! @ $20.00 a year who can beat it? Nobody that's who. Get yours today I am very glad I have mine and so is my mom :P
I know people who have them on their wireless computers as well so everywhere they go they have their magic jack with them. You can use a head set with them as well. Thank you for reading this.
