magic jack telephones

i was thinking about getting the magic jack but had a few questions. i know it needs to be connected to the usb port of a computer, but does the computer need to be on for it to work? i'd like to know i'll be able to receive an emergency call in the midle of the night without my computer having to be on 24/7. also, does the magic jack accomodate only one telephone? sometimes i can't reach the phone if i'm on the opposite end of the house so i like to have 2 phones available to make it easier to catch the phone. also, do they offer call forwarding ? thanks.

  • your computer has to be on and connected to the internet. but you can still get messages even if it's off.

  • My ex has this and it is just ok. It has some issues. We have realized now that if we get phone calls over and over where no one is on the other end that is because the magic jack is screwing up again and he can't get through to us. It happens periodically and we never know when it it going to happen.
