Krazy sounds like an advertisement! Are you sure you don't work for or distribute Magic Jack? I see and here this all the time on this and other forums...these people pretend to give an "honest" review only to find out that they are sales reps for the product. I don't know if that is the case here, but it sure does sound like it:
"recently installed Magic Jack"
"this thing really works"
"its a no brainer to hook up"
"and for $40 a year, its a deal"
"I hear you can get it through Radio Shack"
"all over US and Canada and haven't had a problem"
"even at 6mbs"
"I have to talk long distance for hours to my office"
"great alternative to ridiculous roaming an long distance charges"
Yep, sounds like a sales rep writing from a written brochure!
I don't know, maybe I owe Krazy an apology...I see Krazy has other posts on this forum that don't sound like sales pitches...just sounded too "fishy" to me!
Actually, it's only the 1st year that it costs $40, then it's $20 a year after that. I have a five year plan for $60. I use it as my primary phone at home and also while on the road. If I can get a wifi signal, I can also get all my calls.
Yep, you owe an apology. This is another case of don't knock it if you haven't tried it. When travelling, my cell phone is rarely used because of Magic Jack. One of the best things about it is that if you don't like it, just get rid of it and you are only out $40. That's about 1/2 of my previous one month bill with my landline - which I no longer have.
