Default Unlimited Calls To USA or Canada for $20/yr--$40 the 1st yr

It's called MagicJack.

No Kevin, I'm not affiliated with the company. I intend to use the service just as soon as I can transfer my local # to it.

If you're overseas, have a US friend order the device and forward it to you.

My geek friend called me on the service and it's crystal clear.

Quote:
You can also make free overseas calls from the U.S. to other MagicJack users worldwide.

Who else would benefit from owning one of these? Kids who want their own phone line; cash-strapped college students; home-based business users; and second-home owners who don't want to pay the phone company for year-round service.

I tested the MagicJack on a couple PCs and came away mighty impressed - eventually. When I first plugged it into a Windows Vista system, it didn't work. A trip to the MagicJack Web site revealed that I needed a software update, which I downloaded and installed.

From there it was smooth sailing: I set up my account, chose a phone number, and plugged in my phone. I immediately heard a loud, clear dial tone. During my test calls, voice quality proved to be excellent, easily on par with my full-time phone service (ViaTalk).

Then I plugged in my embarrassingly bulky corded phone and picked it up: instant dial tone. Admittedly, there was a bit of drop-out during my test calls, probably owing to the relatively slow network, but overall they sounded great.

I've saved the best part for last: The MagicJack costs just $40, which includes your first year of service. Each additional year is $20. How incredible is that?

Thanks for the link, Iggy. Looks like a good service to me.

I used to spend a lot on international calls, now I only use skype occasionally.

I got this and had to return it as I didn't read the fine print initially. I'd have had to change my phone number and thats a no-no as its been our business number for 40 years. They said eventually they could do it but not yet.

I think you can keep your phone number now with magic jack! Might be worth looking into. I have thought about getting it. Right now I use Teleblend phone service. $15 a month for unlimited calls in US and Canada. They've been good.

Thank you tho!
