Magic Jack

I have several questions about a Magic Jack:
1. Do you get acceptable phone clarity using the MJ with the internet?
2. Are there any costs other than buying the unit?
3. Where can you purchase a MJ at democratic prices?
4. Does anyone have a used unit for sale?
Thanks. :roll: :roll:

My experience:
1) Clarity is so-so ... the better internet connection you have (more mb) the better the connection.
2) Yes, you have to pay per year or for 5 years in advance ... last I checked it was approximately $36/year or $99 for 5 years.
3) You either have to find someone selling one here, have someone in US send you one, or next time you go to US, buy one and bring it back. In all honesty, I have two but I'm not sure you even need it. I think you can sign up, pay the costs, use the magicapp on smartphone and make and receive calls through your cell phone (which is what i do).
4) I guess I could sell my 1 of my older units if you need it. If so, send me a pm...

I have used the MJ unit in Peru for many years. It is as clear as any typical phone connection if the internet connection speed is good in both uplink and downlink speed. Most people only are concerned with download speed and in this case, both are equally important with MJ or any internet based phone connection.

Trying to send a private message to the two (2) posters that have a MJ.
Please state price & model; the newest is the "GO".
Not sure how the newer models are better or what has been improved.

Always have a problem with getting the name in the box to send.
What am I doing wrong or is the process confusing to others also?
Thanks for all the replies. :roll:

Would I be able to buy a MJ on Wilson Avenue in center Lima?
They seem to have everything else.
Anyone been there recently?
Thanks. :roll:
