Magic Jack Logo
I first heard about this on the Clark Howard show. It’s called MagicJack.

My buddy just bought one and loves it. He has a lake house that gets zero cell phone reception. And he does not want to pay the ATT cartel for a phone he would rarely use. So, he got one of these. Says he works like a charm (he has internet access there).

$39.95 plus $6.95 s&h for the first year. This covers the cost of the hardware plus the first year of service. Each year after that is $19.95.

I just ordered one. Tell you later how I like it.

Update: July 20th

Ok, got it in the mail yesterday.

This part is trivial…. But, I liked the way it was wrapped. Nice presentation and vary “Apple” like!

Plugged it in my Mac Book Pro and an internal drive mounted. It mounted first time and a 20Mb USB drive mounted with the Magic Jack application on it. Good presentation that told me to double click the app. 🙂

App ran, stepped me through the “new user” screen. It then assigned me a number. I was able to choose the state and area code. Not bad.

Made a few calls. So far, not bad at all. Very Vonage like, but without the $20 a month head aches.

I’m like it and I’m keeping it.
