There are better options out there. Stay away from MagicJack. Horrible customer service experience, Worse than even Comcast. I paid the first year upfront. On the 1yr anniversary, they charged my credit card for the next 2 years automatically, ok so far. I called to cancel the service after a few months past my 1yr anniv. If you go there website you will get the run around and give up. I didn't give up. Got a phone number and called them just for them to refer me back to their website. I gave them their order number, amount and date they charged my credit card. They had no record of it. They denied the fact I ever paid for the 2 yrs. A supervisor was to call me back regarding a possible refund for early termination. Never called me back.

I ported my old land line to Magic Jack about two months ago and have been very satisfied with the service. I connected the phone directly to the Magic Jack adapter hooked to my wireless router, and have not used a computer connection. I have not used customer service; so, can't really comment on them, but the good news is I haven't needed to use customer service! The app for iPhone is quite good. It allows me to view calls as they come in, answer them or not, and listen to voice mail. I can also make calls from the app. I discovered while traveling in Ireland recently, that I could make calls with my iPhone Magic Jack app when connected to wireless internet to other US numbers, and they were treated as domestic calls with no charge. This was a big help since I had not bothered to get a sim card for my cell phone while there.
