I recently renewed my magicjack subscription for another year ($45) and noticed the quality of the calls weren't so clear, after trying all their troubleshooting tips and speaking to technical support I inquired about their refund policy and was told they do not give refunds, next thing I know I get an email stating that my service was deactivated per my request when I never requested my service be deactivated especially since they don't give refunds I simply inquired about their refund policy, I called to resolve the matter thinking they would reactivate my service no problem since it was a misunderstanding on their part but that's not how it went, they (3 different reps including a supervisor) kept telling me that their records show I requested my service be deactivated because that's what their rep noted in the computer although I never requested deactivation, nobody would take responsibility for their (magicjack) mistake making it seem like I got what I asked for, so I'm out $45 because they don't give refunds and they just took it upon themselves to deactivate my service because I inquired about their refund policy, doesn't even make sense, clearly they didn't want to keep a customer, I'll gladly invest my money elsewhere, took my money and wouldn't reactivate my service that they deactivated in error (although they wouldn't own up to the error), you might be wondering why would I even want my service reactivated if the calls aren't clear because now I'm out $45, it's the principal of the matter I guess because they took my money and I didn't get what I paid for, unacceptable customer service!!

I've had MJ's for several years and they all ended in disappointment. When they worked, they were fine. But eventually a unit would inexplicably cease to work and when I finally got hold of Customer Support, they would tell me that my account was "under review"!! When I asked why, they could not give me an answer except to say that the review would be done quickly and service returned soon. IT NEVER HAPPENED. The line never came back to life and repeated calls to CS resulted in the same vague answer. Thinking maybe a new unit would get me back on track, I stupidly ordered another and eventually the same thing happened again! Based on the unexplained outages and the resultant lack of explanation and/or support, I WILL NEVER RECOMMEND MAGICJACK TO ANYONE. However, if there's someone out there that you hate, you might consider giving them one as an anonymous gift, as it will eventually cause them no end of anger and frustration. Otherwise, ***** DO NOT BUY THIS PIECE OF GARBAGE *****

Some people are saying that this app gives 60 minutes of free calling to USA and Canada. That is not true. It gives UNLIMITED free calling to USA and Canada.

I used the Talkatone app while overseas and it works well, similar to the magicJack app. Lets you make up to 60 minutes of free calls to US/Canada landlines per month. Nice while you are traveling.
