What is magicJack?

magicJack is a device that plugs into a USB port on the user's computer (or in the case of magicJack Plus, plugs directly into a router), and that has a standard RJ-11 phone jack into which any standard phone can be plugged. The magicJack device works exclusively with the company's captive landline supplier and CLEC (Competitive Local Exchange Carrier), YMAX. Voicemail is stored on the magicJack servers and is delivered via direct telephone access, and email with WAV audio file attachments. Downloadable feature upgrades for the magicJack USB dongle are available from third-party software companies.


The most common release is 2.0.6073.4413, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. During setup, the program creates a startup registration point in Windows in order to automatically start when any user boots the PC. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The primary executable is named magicjackloader.exe. The setup package generally installs about 20 files and is usually about 66.25 MB (69,469,065 bytes).

Cost less than $2.00 a month in best case scenario after you buy the original equipment. I recommend you buy the "plus" hardware so your phone can be on when your computer is not. I paid $50.00 on sale for the hardware and one year of service. Note that it cost an extra $20.00 at activation for the first year and $10.00 each year after to keep your old phone number. They don't tell you that until you get to it in the installation. Blows the closest competition out of the water (Walmart for $9.99 a month and I have no idea what extra charges or equipment cost). The sound quality is better than my ATT was and so many more features than I could afford with anyone else. Just hooked my existing phone wiring into it, set it up, and started saving money. Best deal I made this year.
