Im a total newbie when it comes to using voip, but i did a lot of reading on the subject.  After getting my last phone bill (yes i like to talk) i decided to take the plunge and signed up with atlantic telecom.  The sign up process only took about 5 minutes in all and i got all my instructions by email soon after. My box arrived after 3 days (i was told up to 7) and was very pleased with myself after figuring out what to do with the cables. - yes im a female and know nothing about computers and the like.  Anyway to cut a long story short i have to say WOW.  The call quality is very very good and i love the features i get including voicemail to email - very neat! For $19.99 a month i get unlimited USA / Canada & Europe calls (my mothers in england) and i am just so impressed with the whole thing.  I recently found out i can even use my laptop with a phone called x-phone or something like that - its pretty cool too. I have never used anyone else for voip, but im glad i chose the company i did - top marks all around. My account management features are really easy to use and i can log in at anytime to see anything i need to. I kept my phone number for FREE too, no porting. There was no small print or catches that i found with other providers - another big plus for me. With this atlantic telecom, unlimited is unlimited, not limited like vonage

I have spent hours on the phone with the Magicjack support people, and still have a device that will not work with my operating system. It appears that they sell devices to Mac users knowing full well that it is incompatible with the latest Mac software. You will not find this disclosure on their website, and they will not refund your money when you find that it does not work with your system. Instead, they will put you on hold, transfer you to another department without warning, and obfuscate rather than admitting that the problem is on their end. After hours on the phone, they will then tell you that a fix is in the works, you just need to be patient while they are working on it. This company scams people, plain and simple.

I bought my first MJ in 2007 and I still use it today though mostly only use it for questionable contacts where I suspect my number will be spammed or added to telemarketing list. I've bought two newer units (MagicJack Plus) over the years and they also work just fine. I used the first magicjack USB dongle with a laptop while driving truck cross country from 2007 to 2012. I used it for all communication with dispatch and to send in my trip and pay information. On occasion I would even send a fax with MJ though I learned I had to turn down the fax speed and only send B&W. I currently use two MagicJack Plus units for my home phone and home business phone lines. A few points I'll make. The older USB style has to be used in a powered USB port while the newer units with a RJ45 jack do not require a PC to use. ALL MagicJack need a high speed internet connection and a very good power source. Once, while messing with the configuration of my router, i did mess up the magicjack and customer service was no help at all in getting it running again, I did work that out on my own. The quality of the Dongle is not the best, but has lasted me since 2007 with repeatedly plugging and unplugging it in the USB port. The AC jack for the MagicJack Plus stopped working after a year though it does work for with a quality replacement I bought. I have the two MagicJack Plus plugged into the same UPS I have the router & modem plugged into which allows me to have phone service during a power loss unless the internet service goes down as well. MagicJack is as easy as getting cheese-wiz out of a can. The only prerequisite is an IQ over 75
