One of my two adapters recently died. I wasn't too upset, as I have had them for nearly five years, and purchased 5 years of service for each when I bought them. Service has been okay, working well most of the time. People calling me never worked very well, and I tried the adapters in a number of different ISPs and computers.
Anyway, I bought the new PLUS model, received it several days after ordering, and called MJ to transfer my number from the old unit that died. A short time later it was done, and as we were finishing up, I asked if my nearly $40 in international long distance had also been transferred. The rep then stated that the international long distance credit does not transfer, and per the TOS (Terms Of Service, or the small print you never read), MAGIC JACK KEEPS THE MONEY.
Bye Bye Magic Jack. I will not be renewing either of my numbers when they expire. Prior to this incident, I would have rated you *** of 5 stars. Now you are * of 5 stars.
Hardware dies, and in this case it takes your money to the grave.
Re: Magic Joke..... Thanks. I just bought an Obi 100 on Amazon for $40 and I am going to try the Google phone with it. We don't use the landline that much, but we do call overseas once or twice a week, and it gets expensive on the cell phone.
Considering... Their commercials looks more like a poorly made informercial... I would be suprised of the issues I have seen around.
