Needed 911 and of course MJ+ FAILED...

Yep, failed to go through and they charged for the 911 service. The account says it is up and running good and has all the correct address info. The call simply says please dial area code. Dial area code and then 911 and nothing. I think a class action lawsuit is in order.

I know of no provider ... landline, cellular, VoIP ... that requires dialing an Area Code before the 911!

Think about it. If you live in Oregon and dial 212-911, do you really expect a New York City Emergency Management responder to answer your call?! If a visitor to your home had an emergency, would you (or MagicJack) expect them to dial an area code + 911? I think not.

Just dial '911'.

Apparently you can't read. I did dial only 911 and a voice said, must first dial the area code.

I don't use 911. The local emergency numbers are posted on my desk and other house phones. Sometimes the 911 number could be busy.

That's interesting, I wonder if anybody else has had the same experience? Since they charge the local fees for the service it seems like they should guarantee it working.
