We’ve seen the “just plug it in” pitches on late-night TV, the cheesy
website, and the spotty instructions, none of which exactly inspire
confidence in the magicJack. But still, the allure of nearly free phone
calls all over the country (or to Canada, Puerto Rico, and the U.S.
Virgin Islands) is strong. Plus since it’s VOIP, your number can travel
with you. Believe it or not, magicJack turns out to be pretty magical.
