    Default Magic Jack

    Is anyone using this? They advertise on TV for $19.95 a year you can eliminate local and long distance phone calls by plugging this into your computer and a phone line into the other end? If you are using it, what do you think about it?

    ALL the Magic Jack does is enable VOIP communication over your high speed line. You can do the same thing with many free programs and your existing hardware.

    My buddy had it, sooo many problems in one day he plugged the vonage box back in. Others have had no issues. Some ppl state call quality drops after the money back period.

    Free programs aren't going to give you a phone number on the PSTN and allow you to use a normal telephone. Magic Jack is just like Vonage and other VoIP telephone services. You can't get that for free using existing hardware. You are thinking of something like Skype which is totally different.
    Even the burger-flippers at McDonald's probably have some McWackers.
