How Magic Jack Works
Previously, we learned what Magic Jack was all about in our article “What is the MagicJack”. Naturally, you might be thinking “How does the Magic Jack actually work?” Magic Jack works with your computer to provide telephone service cheaper than any other on the planet. Magic Jack uses revolutionary Voice-Over-Internet-Protocol (VOIP) technology to bring you the kind of reliable phone service businesses have enjoyed on for over a decade. Plug in the compact (about the size of a large pack of gum) Magic Jack adapter, and in less than 10 minutes you’ll be enjoying unlimited long distance calls with friends and family.
As you might have guessed Voice Over Internet Protocol (VOIP) technology was developed to work over the internet. VOIP can provide better call quality, more features, and greater reliability than standard POTS (plain old telephone service) that still use the nations aging copper wires. As the U.S. and the world continue to build future communication infrastructure, technology like VOIP will grow with it. This makes Magic Jack future proof. The technology behind Magic Jack grows with the internet. This is why VOIP and Magic Jack are considered future telephone systems.
First plug the Magic Jack adapter into your computer’s Universal Serial Bus (USB) port. USB is the blade-shaped plug that’s used for computer keyboards, mice, printers, web-cams, and most other peripherals. USB has been standard for this type of connection since 1998 so nearly all computers have USB ports. USB ports also come standard on most laptop computers, this makes taking your Magic Jack on the road quick and easy. Imagine using your Magic Jack at a hotel to place calls instead of their pricey in-room phone system. Magic Jack’s portability makes this possible.
From there, Magic Jack then gives you a choice. You may plug-in your telephone and/or a headset and microphone. This is a real advantage because you’ll be able to use your current favorite telephone. If you phone has a modular jack (the standard square shaped plug) chances are you can use it with Magic Jack. That includes cordless phones. Magic Jack also allows you to plug a headset and microphone directly into your computer for hands-free use.
After plugging in your phone, you’ll be prompted to setup an account. This process takes just a few minutes. Here you’ll be able to setup a new phone number in any of the many area codes Magic Jack provides. You’ll also receive voice mail information. Magic Jack makes a good alternative to giving your cell phone number for times when you don’t want your cell phone disturbed or vice-versa. Use Magic Jack as your primary number and send all secondary calls to your cell. The additional phone number and voice mail provided by Magic Jack can also be a boon to business users looking for a dedicated business line for very little cost.
As you can see, Magic Jack sets up so fast and easy anyone can do it. No technical skills or special hardware are required. In 3 steps your new phone number and phone service are ready to go. Magic Jack has a 100% risk free trial. If you don’t love it, return it for a full refund. To take advantage of this offer visit Magic Jack’s website.
