Kayakwinds: You mention the need to do the original setup with your computer in order
to register. I have the Ubuntu 12.4 operating system. I have read that I
will have a problem using Ubuntu and Magicjack. What do you suggest? Can I
get around having to use my computer for the initial setup?
Derek Miller: Does the caller ID work listing info like number, name, etc?
brass: Step one use a computer. change title please
Kathy Malone: I cant et connected without the internet it says error ....I thought that
the Plus doesnt need internet to operate after it was registered, what Am I
Robert Chapman: I used magic Jack for about 6 years, but every time I talked to people for
a long time my call always got cut off after about 30 mins and then have to
call them back. I switched to straight talk home phone, much better no
dropped calls even after 6 hours of talking. I used regular magic jack and
magic jack plus, same problem with both of them.
ThePoreproductions: I just bought the new 2014 model today, and it works perfectly. (except for
the software, which runs very slow.)
icehorse1010: The one thing i ask is since the plus one can be used without a computer,
when you go to make a call on the phone and your on your computer doing
stuff, will the stupid magicjack thing pop up on your screen? Hated that
but that was back in 2008 and i would thing since its not hook up to the
computer and to the router, it shouldn't pop up ever time you make a call.
Just wanted to ask if that happen to you with the magicjack plus.
Arlene Allen: Also, the internet green light is flickering. On the side of the MJ, the
blue light remains constant but, the red and the yellow lights keep going
on and off.
GrannieAnnieF: Good video, thanks. I also have had both. I just set my Plus up yesterday
after not being in use for over a year. I like that it will show the number
of the person calling, although if someone's cell phone doesn't register it
will show up as "anonymous". Once someone's # shows up in the list you can
edit it and add them to the contact list.
You can also switch to using a headset if you don't have a phone to connect
to it. You can either use the phone to dial your # or use the keypad on the
computer, then pick up the phone after dialing.
It also has voicemail services and you can have the msg sent to your email.
It will show the # of the person who called, with the message attached. I
actually received an email with voicemail attached from someone who's # I
lost, long after the service had run out (I moved and didn't have the mj
with me). So, I was thankful my number hadn't been given away and could
call the person back.
Arlene Allen: Does the internet cable go into the router (which I did, but it doesn't
work) or the modem?
Doc D: Use another computer.
Cecille Leonidas: how can i sit up inbox messages
Gammie Juarez: I don't understand why people have to be so nasty. No one is forcing you to
watch this video that was so generously made available. If you don't like
this one there are several others that you can avail yourself of. There is
no need for the nastiness and vulgarity. Is this what we've come to? Thanks
Daniel. I was able to follow your video step by step with a screen split
between your video and the MJ screens.
keilana6: To Colonel 11947 Thanks for information on the call charges. The last
call I made from my MJ+ I received a message saying that I needed a prepaid
card or minutes (which I have never heard of). I was calling a toll free
number. That was a couple of weeks ago and I haven't been able to make a
call since. I get error 1 message which is "check internet connection".
Connection is same as when installed and obviously I am using the
internet. Disappointed because I expected reliability and low cost service.
Robert Bahna: I have a big home with 6 phones
can I use it from all 6 phones?
Sidney Mathious: I have a friend who will be glad to know how that works since he heard of
it on television and is wanting to change his service.
Beth E: You can plug this into any outlet!
Daniel Scheer: You could probably just plug it into the high speed modem, but then you
couldn't use the internet. Many of the newer high speed modems are already
routers. So if you have multiple Ethernet plugs on the back... you are good
to go without an additional router.
Daniel Scheer: MJP does not need a thin client at all. You simply hook it to the computer
like your original MJ to register it. After that you can disconnect it
forever and use the power adapter and network connection only. I have never
connected it back to my computer after setting it up for the first time.
Daniel Scheer: Adriaaaaaannnn!
Daniel Scheer: Try chatting with MJ support. I am not officially affiliated with them. You
might try a different USB port... but your computer should detect it.
Frank Ortiz: yeah go buy a rotary phone man!
Colonel1947: WARNING- After two years on MJ Plus. I am now without being able to call
out because they have now switched me to a prepaid by the minute calls
only! They claim it is because certain calls cost them to connect me with
others. I was fine for two years & now can't make calls even to MJ
customers I referred them too!!. Suddenly every number I call gets a voice
message telling I have to first have to buy prepaid minutes to complete the
sugarcookiecube: please lose the background music. too distracting and annoying. otherwise,
very nice video.
theman7431: What's the sound quality like?
Abul Wafa: UNLIKE WHAT majicjack claims, it is simply a constant headache once yo
install it on your computer. No matter how fast your internet is, I am in
NYC, it never works properly. I have returned my MagicJack because every
other time I tried to use it I had to reboot the software. Plus, the
customer servcie is bad. There is no telephone number on their website to
Daniel Scheer: I use Charter Internet. It's a cable TV based service costing me $30 a
month for 12mbps (but it tests out at over 20 mbps.) That being said, MJP
worked fine for me when I was using 3mbps too. The whole reason I switched
to Magic Jack in the first place was that I wanted out of the bundle. I now
pay $90 for cable TV and internet with no phone bundled in. Wish I could
drop the TV too!!! lol
LindaLou From Wyoming: I find the back ground music very distracting. It tends to cover you voice
up some. I think it would be great with out the music.
skybitscom: but if 3 phone numbers then most cable modems have 4 Ethernet jacks so you
can also support 3 MJPs off the one router too. My comments are based on
wired of course and only a couple options depending on if you have one
number or 3 numbers.
Daniel Scheer: It has to be setup on the computer first.
Daniel Scheer: It either needs to be hooked to a router or internet modem, because it
needs a connection to the internet. That being said, if your original mj
didn't work... I doubt the mjp will work either.
Kennith Young: Darn, I thought that no computer required, meant no internet required...
Daniel Scheer: Got is online at their website.
Evelyn Gonzalez: Daniel, I am cutting down on my expenses and shopping around. I am gettig
the magic Jack PLUS for my phone and faxes. I am in californina what
internet service do you use? I want to get some thing fast but not so
expensive. I know a lot of the providers out there have bundles only and I
don't need them what do you suggest?
upnsmoke hookahian: i just wasted my time watching this u plugged it in ur ethernet so whats
the point ur still using ur computer u should make a video without plugging
it in ur comp and use it normal
Daniel Scheer: No. There's an option to keep your old number... but if you don't cancel
the old account afterwards, they will attempt to bill you when it expires.
barrazy1: Thanks Daniel , Very nice video !!!!!!
JOSE RODRIGUEZ: IF I CONNECT MY MJP IN THE US & THEN GO OVERSEAS..MY JOB IS A MERCHANT
MARINE...MY MJP WILL WORK OUT THERE IN THE SHIP?.WE HAVE WIFI IN THE
SHIP'S...THANK YOU VERY MUCH
gollywobbers: Thanks so much for the information - looks easy as pie and I am going to
give it a shot. Great video exercise.
MacBompee: Thanks for the video very helpful!
Mamoudou Diallo: how much does it cost and where can u get it online
skybitscom: I love the music. It was not too loud and very entertaining since the
instructions are obviously not complicated rocket science, but more just
informational. I love the duck lol. Great job Daniel and thanks for
sharing. I will get the mjp soon.
GBpueblo: So you you can make phone calls with this. BUT how about can you send
Richard Bekkett: IMPORTANT – Canadian Magic Jack area code availability is LIMITED & the
following is NOT made clear. Your Magic Jack # MUST use the SAME area code
your land line did/does OR anyone who calls your Magic Jack # WILL now pay
Long Distance. Example: if you live in a 250 area code BUT your Magic Jack
# has a 604 area code anyone in 250 area code (with cell or land line) who
calls you will NOW pay Long Distance. Most Canadians are out of luck UNLESS
they “port” their existing land line number
GThoughTz1: Do I need to change my Phone for magic jack plus?
Jeanny Daniel: I can just imagine how big your computer screen is.
Ryan Tran: Why not the app magic jack but a cell phone
Neal Fischer: Hi Daniel, no complaints I really like your video. Just one comment; at
6:53 you click on the blue box which says: "Click here to close this window
and begin using magicJack PLUS from your computer" Perhaps you should have
clicked on the Green box which says: "Click here and remove your magicJack
PLUS to begin using your magicJack PLUS in standalone mode plugged directly
into your switch or router." Cheers! Great Video!
Peter A: Connect to your router but you can not call out without further assistance
Daniel Scheer: That is strange. I would contact their online chat support. I have never
had a single issue.
