You may use your computer or a conventional phone to make and receive calls. Connect your MagicJack to a power outlet. Then follow the on-screen instructions.

In addition to its cost effectiveness, another reason people use MagicJack is due to its ease of use. There's no need to install or learn a new software program or dialing plan. Simply connect to the web via WiFi or cellular network and you're ready to go!

If you own a small business, then you know the importance of having reliable telephone service. Customers expect you to respond to messages and complaints immediately. If someone calls your office number and gets a busy signal, they'll simply call back later. VoIP allows you to have a personal phone number that can be used from anywhere in the world. This makes it convenient for customers to contact you directly with questions or problems they might have.

People also use MagicJack because of its many other features. For example, you can use its "Call Forwarding" feature so that if your main phone line is disconnected, clients will be directed to another phone number. This way, everyone is kept informed of any changes to your address book. VoIP allows you to be more flexible than traditional phone service with this kind of functionality.
