Warning about magic jack

don't try the magic jack everything they say on web page is a lie ,they even make you agree that if you don't like it or it doesn't work like they say you cant take any legal action against them( before you sign up) and if the stupid thing brakes they charge you $20 for a replacement .Just wanted other hard working mom's to know that.

  • Magic Jack is under a massive lawsuit right now with Consumer Affairs. Stay away from this product, I'm serious. Tons of people are complaining about this service. Vonage is pretty good, but you need internet for their service.

  • We have nettalk and it works fine. You don't have to have your computer on to make or receive calls...it plugs into your router (so you would lose the phone if you lost your internet connection or power went off). My dad got it for us and it's $35/year for unlimited local and long distance to US and Canada. We haven't had any problems.
