Highland Lakes, NJ
It does not only apply to Canada. I live in New jersey and I picked one of the available NJ Area Code Phone Numbers. The Customer Support said I am being chrarged because I chose my number versus letting Magic Jack choose the number for me.
This was not a porting of any phone number I had previously.
If you choose your number, you will be charged a yearly fee. And, recieve an ANNOYING MESSAGE for one month or until you pay the fee.
