We signed up for this service; our router was a Linksys SPA3102 (brand new). They could not get the phone to ring, and we could not receive incoming calls. Despite this, they continued to bill us, and after the first attempt to fix our connection, they stopped responding to email. After 2 weeks, we made the move to Vonage, and after installing our router (which amounted to connecting it), our phone began to ring again and all worked correctly. We had a balance of nearly $40 with ContactTel, and we asked them to close the account and mail the balance to us, or send it by email money order: never happened. That was 8 months ago, and we don't expect to see that money again. This place is a total rip off.
cheap China stuff.....Will not last long....Poor customer service. Why don't they use parts made in the USA?>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
We are very disappointed with our experience with MagicJack. For over half the calls that we receive, the only caller ID info we receive is the words, "incoming call". Hello!!! I "know" I have an incoming call, because- wait for it- my phone is ringing!! ;-) We chatted through the MJ chat line, only to be told that what we are experiencing is "a known issue" and that "the engineering department is working really hard to fix this matter". The call log, for incoming and outgoing calls, isn't uploaded until the following day, so we can't even look at the log to see what calls we have missed. Using MJ is like being transported back to the early 1990s. Save your money and more importantly your SANITY and don't buy a MJ unit.
