Magicjack Plus Review and Giveaway

With the advancement of our technology, more and more homes are ditching landline phones. With high speed internet and Voip based phone services taking over. I remember before our area got cable internet, we were paying 90 a month for slow dsl via our phone company. Since we never used the landline, this was a big ouchie.

With living in the country our cell phone doesn’t pick up the best inside out home, so I had to look for another alternative, and I wasn’t going to pay $50 a month for a landline, when honestly we don’t use the phone often. The main reason I wanted a house phone, is in case we were not getting signal on the cell, family could still contact us if needed.

With having already at one time tried the Magic Jack, I was very curious about the Magic Jack Plus. I only have two usb ports on my computer, and having them tied up was not an option. If you are familiar with the Magic Jack device you know that the Magic Jack Plus allows you to plug it into the wall, then hook your high speed internet through that then a phone. This was just what I needed, it would give me another way for people to contact me, plus I wouldn’t be using up my USB ports.

When I first received my unit for review, I was having a hard time hearing anyone on the other end, I did take that to be the phone. So I got a better phone, and I could hear the other party a bit better. I noticed with the Magic Jack Plus in order to hear, and not have the service all choppy you cannot be doing much of anything online at the time of the call…

I have talked to my sister several times using the Magic Jack Plus, and when their is a lot of traffic going through my connection it makes the call almost impossible. I have also talked using the Magic Jack Plus when there was no traffic, and the call was a lot clearer, the caller on the other end did state a few times, that I was breaking up. However, during this time I never had no interruptions on my end.

The issues I experienced with the MagicJack Plus are the same issues I would experience with other Voip phone services, and are to be expected due to the traffic of the cable internet. Since cable is shared not only was any traffic in my home effecting the quality of the call, but so was the traffic of everyone around me using the same internet provider.

However, with that being said, I still would recommend the MagicJack Plus, because it does allow me to get calls when my cell doesn’t want to keep signal, and if the call is important I can get the cell phone go outside and call the party calling me back. Plus, I use the phone most times at night, and during the night hours the service seems to be a lot better.

So if you are like me, and you are wanting an alternative way for people to get in touch with you, the MagicJack Plus would be a great option. Pay one price have the service for the year, and you don’t have to worry about any added monthly charges.
