(ratings match consensus)
Going back to Vonage because Magic Jack is blocking the local access number to the calling card we are dialing to make international calls. They are declaring them conference line numbers and instead of connecting me they try to offer me prepaid conference line numbers. (finger)
Now using MagicJack Plus as my land line phone! I couldn't pass up the new Plus feature of using it as a stand alone device plugged directly into the outlet. I'm paying an extra $10 per year ($50 total) because Ive ported my phone number over from Vonage. Been having a little issue with it needing a reset by unplugging the device completely. I contacted support via live chat and they had me install the user interface on my laptop. That installation pushed a new "firmware" onto the device. So far I haven't seen any issues. Since I chose stand-alone setup the MagicJack Plus device never received any updated firmware???
No longer have the connections in the Philippines and no longer using the devices.. When the connection was reliable MagicJack performed great and I would refer anyone to use it. As time went on from the 12/2009 install the Wireless internet connection deteriorated to the point that a phone call was not capable of being made or received. Globe Telecom's fault.
Installed and registered a local phone # with ease at home and brought it to the Philippines. Works great even with a connection rated at 800kbps down and 200kbps up. I made all sorts of calls to Chicago and Canada with no issues at all. Both parties can hear each other when an accidental double talk occurs.
I wont be spending $100 per month on international calls anymore.
I guess everything is OK. Our calls to and from the Philippines are just fine. At times I hear an echo but I think the DSL connection in the Philippines is at fault with latency issues.
