Magic Jack phone calls
Tired of paying hefty phone bills? Looking for a cheaper option? Your quest ends on this page. Welcome to the world of Magic Jack!
Magic Jack costs $39.95 and includes a year of unlimited domestic service. Each year thereafter is $19.95. It offers the flexibility of virtual VoIP phone number and voicemail, in addition to numerous other VoIP call features.
Magic Jack owners can choose their own area code irrespective of the geographical location or their assigned area code. Virtual phone numbers are advantageous to business users who do not intend to create multiple office buildings and still wish to maintain a robust and professional image. For individuals it serves the purpose of anonymity when they do not wish to be identified by the receiver.
The latest version of Magic Jack utilizes the “femtocell” technology. This means that service provider will install an eight feet cell tower in the premises of home or office, to allow mobile users an uninterrupted supply of signals and Magic Jack advantages. The unique selling point of this technology is that femtocell is not restricted to a specific mobile phone service. However, the users need to stay in the range of 3000 square foot to avail the benefits.
With this miniscule USB device that offers VoIP services at a fairly economical price, it is going to face a tough opposition from cellular operators. Since the device takes the advantage of frequencies which are pre- licensed to existing mobile phone operators, they stand a strong chance to loose their humongous customer base and revenues.
With the advent of mobile technology, users have shifted their mode of communication from primary phones to mobile. Mobile users subscribe to costlier plans to adjust the significant amount of additional minutes that they used on the traditional phone. Now with the latest version of Magic Jack they can skip paying for those additional minutes and save considerably on their phone bills.
Magic Jack founder and CEO Dan Borislow reported 5.4 million users who have purchased the device through television call-in numbers or from stores like Best Buy and RadioShack. He strongly believes the numbers will grow when they switch from plug-in device to a software-only model that will also allow customers to make international calls as well. Also, it will allow the cell phone users to make calls without loosing their minutes as long as they are within the device range. The existing users need not worry; a free copy of the software can be downloaded from the company’s website.
