The ad makes it look like a very good deal.

I still don't want to send them my money until I hear from someone
that uses it.

Anyone out there have one yet?

I said the same thing.... A friend of mine ordered one....Received it
last week and said it is the greatest thing. He actually got it so his
daughter could have her own line but now he is going to do away with his
home service and get it for the house line/ I too have decided to get it
as well. The one thing that I need to know first is if I get one for
relatives in another country can two magic jacks talk back and forth for
free? If that is the case then I'm buying two of them! But so far for
domestic calls (coming from a friend) it does work and is very clear!

I've decided NOT to buy one. For one thing, there's too little
information on that website.

Anyone out there have one yet?

I've had it for about 2 months now and it works pretty nice. Problem is they
are not servicing our area code yet so I had to go with a chicago one ( We
live in wisconsin) I't works get as a second line but I would never want to
rely on it as my first and primary line. I use it to call out during the day
as it saves me money on my cell phone bill. This service will either get
better or go belly up in a year. Time will tell. I could throw my majicjack
out today and I would have still came out ahead in the short time i've been
using it. Go for it! you don't have much to lose.

for free."

I've been curious about the thing since your first post. I have no desire
for one myself as the voip system I have with my ISP works really well and
costs $15 per month. The peculiar thing is, I can't get any clearly
objective information about the device . Practically every review I read,
sounds like an advertisement for it. Even really great products that I've
read extensive reviews on, have detractors, and folks that have had bad
experiences with them , unlike this thing. So, Terry, bite the bullit, buy
the damn thing and give us all a truely unbiased, objective review
