Our "Magic" Phone

Ok, this is going to sound a bit like a promo for this product, but we are so excited and happy with it that I have to share. We got a "Magicjack" a couple of weeks ago. Carl researched what kind of phone to get and came upon the Magicjack. After researching the pros, cons, and reviews, we decided to get it. We LOVE it! The Magicjack is a jack that plugs into your computer, using your highspeed internet as a phoneline. You plug your phone into the jack, or just use a headset and your computer, without a phone at all. It's kind of like Vonage, I guess. Anyhow, it's only $20 a YEAR! Unbelievable, we thought, but it is true. We love it and have had no problems with it whatsoever. There are no delays when we talk to people, and it's never down, unless the internet is (and that isn't often). You do of course have to have highspeed internet to use it, but it works even with Wifi. Also, you can make your phone number any area code, so that if people call you often from a certain place and they don't have long distance, you can make it local for them. There is no long distance with Magicjack. It's pretty awesome. So, I just had to share our latest fun "toy".
