I bought my Magicjack from its website [...] and received it in less than a week after I ordered it. If you want the option of returning it easily should you decide not to use it, most people on the web recommend buying it from a store like Walmart, Radioshack, Best Buy or even QVC. It took me less than 10 minutes to install Magicjack (plug it into your PC's USB), register it, pick a phone number in my area and start using it. For me, deciding which number to use took the longest time. I live basically in Philadelphia, PA so there were a lot of local numbers I could select. The [...] site lists its available area codes and phone prefixes. Not all areas are available yet so make sure you can select a local phone number for your needs before buying Magicjack. Keep in mind that if you use a non-local phone number for your Magicjack, people that call you may incur toll charges or long distance charges.Read more ›
1)Magic jack is not a standalone device.
2)It needs a Windows or Mac based computer to operate.
3)Needs a high speed internet connection..Will not work on dial up.
4)Computer needs to be on to be able to use MJ..No sleep,hibernate or standby.
5)Needs to be directly connected to the USB port on the PC and not a hub. The primary reason for this..in layman's terms is : The device draws power from the USB. In a distributed setting like a hub, there may not be enough power to support the device. Not saying it will not not work but you WILL have issues.
Installation : Just plug the device on a available usb port and the software and drivers install automatically. Once installed, you will see the MJ softphone on your desktop. Now quickly go to the MJ website and do an upgrade. Steps are pretty simple.
Firewall Settings: Add UDP port 5060 and 5070 to the windows firewall exceptions.
Operation: Once you have the MJ device connected to the USB and the other end to a standard phone, you are ready to make and receive calls.
Call Volume: In the audio proprieties, select tigerjet as playback device and increase vol to approx 60%. Do the same for recording device OR adjust to your preference.
System Resources: Like I mentioned before, the MJ application runs on your computer and hence competes for system resources. I will not go into setting application priorities but if you can do it, it will work better..Having said that, MJ's performance will suffer when you are running a resource intensive application on your computer while running MJ. For eg..graphic softwares, games, movie playbacks etc are very resource intensive and use a lot of processor and memory.Read more ›
To those who have had problems:
1. Read everything before you buy. I have noticed on the internet people complaining about how it doesn't work. It is a piece of technology, and even though it is supposed to be an easy thing, it may require some reading on your part to learn how to make it work. Everything can be found in the FAQ's section on their Magic Jack's website.
2. If you buy this item and don't work, like bad reception, or no dial tone, broken conversation, get a Powered USB hub. For 15 bucks, it makes it run great, and I have a lot more USB ports now.
* I like the fact that is cheap. $19.95 a year cheap! I like to save money, who wouldn't in today's world?Read more ›
