Firstly, I like the convenience of eFAX.  I do not have a fax machine, but only a scanner and a computer.  I can send fax's from my computer however I would get charged the exorbitant international rates from the phone company here in Taiwan and I wish to avoid that at all costs.  In fact, even with the subscription fee, I saved money because I had about 20 pages to fax to 3 different places in the US; my school, a financial institution, and a law firm.  Each one required my signature and one out of three would not send a fax internationally to me and I didn't want to pay the international costs of the other documents that would come to me. Secondly, eFAX was a service that solved a delicate problem for me because they have the option of having a local domestic USA Fax number to where the fax's could be directed to me.  This really saved me as I had a deadline to meet to get these documents and my university would under no circumstances send a fax to me internationally. Thirdly, I like the cost involved.  This is not an expensive service for the service rendered!  If you do a lot of faxing and do not have a fax mcahine, eFAX is definitely the way to go.  So, all in all, I have been really pleased with eFAX.  It has been a very convenient service that turns your email into a fax machine. It is inexpensive and so far, it has been efficient as I have received and sent all of the fax's that I had to (all 20 pages) without any problems.  I recommend eFAX to anyone who does not have  a fax machine and has a limited number of fax's to send  Give it a try.  I think you will be pleased as I have been.

When I inquired for the service they had the 30 day free trial, but obviously I had to give them my credit card number. When I received the system it did not work well with my internet, so I contacted the company and received a RMA number with return authorization, and shipped the unit back within few days of receiving the unit exactly as they wanted and I did include a copy of the RMA authorization with the return, and the tracking showed that they did receive the unit within couple of days. But then the the 30 days free trial date ended they charged my credit card anyway, I have contacted them several times and they keep telling me that the return has not processed through their warehouse yet and this has been two months since they received the unit back. When they did transfer me to the department that supposedly would give you a refund, I was on hold for an hour twice. So don't expect to get refund from them. After calling several time and getting no where, I got a little aggressive with them and they just hung up the phone.

I don’t recommend opting for multiple years of service of Magic Jack because if the device should fail within that period, you must replace it with a new device and a new subscription and there is no way to transfer the unused subscription months to the new device and no refund of the unused months. Also, don’t fall for the 911 surcharge that Magic Jack is offering. The Magic Jack plus works just fine when calling 911. I occasionally get a recorded reminder on the Magic Jack VoIP to pay the additional fee to call 911.
