I've been a MagicJack customer since 2011, so when my MagicJack+ packed it in, it wasn't a big deal. I purchased the replacement product MagicJack GO from MagicJack Canada. Unfortunately, it doesn't work. I should have been able to plug it in where the old unit was, and it should have worked, but it didn't. I've spent hours on the chat line trying everything they have suggested. My time was worth more than this $50 (including shipping) product. I've done VoIP installs commercially, and never had as many problems or as poor quality support as MagicJack provides. If you want quality, you have to pay more. I'm tired of listening to my wife complain about the voice quality too.

I'm a networking expert (30 years experience) who has written VOIP code. There are three things you need to get good magicjack service: 1. Network speed. 50 Mbps for VOIP is the minimum to have good quality. The technology works with less, but technically there is a tradeoff between bandwidth versus delay and qalilty. I recently upgraded to 150 Mbps ($59/month). Spend your money on network performance and not your phone line, the latter turns excellent when your speed is good. 2. The power supply is the second cause of problems. People complain about service deterioriating, that's because the Magic Jack USB power supply is crap. But MJ will replace it for free. Or better yet, buy a quality USB power source (from a good store, not the walmart checkout). If the power is flakey the electronics and CPU in the MJ box will be crap. 3. Buy a UPS for your network router, modem and MJ box. Blackouts are when the power really goes out, but more often you will have brownouts where the power isn't full levels, and electronics don't deal welll with that, especially ones in small packages (no room for big capacitors). If you have good power and good networking, most of the problems listed go away. But no amount of customer support will solve that. If you start having to reboot the MJ box or lose calls, check the above comments. Porting in Canada works in 2018, but costs onetime $20, and the Canadian registrar costs $10 per year. Still cheap.
