The only complaints I’ve ever personally seen about MagicJack home phone service deal with either connectivity and hardware/software issues or the upgrades that have taken place over the years. Technology is going to change folks, but that’s why you need to think about what you’re buying before you buy it. I too have made many mistakes buying products that I shouldn’t have bought, but would Magic Jack really fall into that category? Or, would it instead be a product that really does provide good home phone service for a one time fee?
There are reports that you have to pay in order to port a number. Some people will care about this, and some people won’t really care much at all. I wouldn’t really care about porting my number in this day and age. Some people are going to be signing up for a home phone after not having had one for awhile, all because Magic Jack has made it more affordable again. Plus, some people miss the old home phone after not having one for awhile.
I’ve missed both at one point or another. For three years, I made myself live without a cellphone to save money and go off the grid a little. I recently got one again, but I had just been using a home phone. I was blessed because it came with the condo, so I didn’t have to pay anything. Magic Jack customers don’t have to pay much though. All they have to do is buy the product and get things set up. There are going to obviously be certain system requirements, and that is one way you can avoid a fail from the get go.
When looking at what they offer now, it appears that you get one year for free with purchase of the product. However, I’m also seeing one that mentions three months, which is confusing to me. I always thought it was for a year or even longer. When it first started out, wasn’t it for life? Of course, there has been an upgraded Magic Jack product released in recent years as you can well imagine.
The company will always find a good way to make money and to get its name out there. For example, they have hit the app market as well. You can do all kinds of things using your cellphone when it comes to your MagicJack home phone service. Maybe you want to forward calls, or maybe you need to manage and network both your Magic Jack business and home phones.
It is quite obvious why many people are going with Magic Jack for home phone service. Yet, you definitely want to be sure it’s a product that is going to work with your setup. You can always make adjustments, but having a home phone these days is well, a traditional luxury. That is a contradiction for sure, but it is what it is. If you have a home phone, you don’t want to have to pay too much for it, and you don’t want it to be a hassle.
