vonage sucks...question about majic jack

wangshanFebruary 3, 2011

I just quit vonage voip because their rates have gone way up since I first started with them. I had to call my bank and get the charge...over $400 prepay for the year......... removed since they went ahead and charged me any way ...nice huh? After filing out all the complaint forms to the BBB,FCC and states AG like I always do when one of these corporations screws up like that, I have to decide if I should bother with a land line or just have a cell phone. Has anyone got the majick jack ? Are the problems with the old ones ironed out ? How much do they end up costing per year?

The only thing I've heard about Magic Jack is that their support is pretty bad. If you get the thing up and running, it works fine. Remember that you need to have a computer up and running for Magic Jack to work. Computer goes down, no phone.

There's another service like Vonage that supposed to be pretty good. Can't think of the name, something with an O.

Lots of people are ditching land lines. Depends on your calling habits. Most telephone companies offer a very basic, inexpensive plan if you want to have a backup. Generally, they don't advertise them you have to ask and you'll only get a few local calls per month.
