How to Block My Number When Using Magic Jack

Using Magic Jack is a great way to save money on your home phone service. But because it uses your Internet connection, you won't have a caller ID that tells you who is calling. Another drawback is that Magic Jack won't allow you to register your number as private. If you want to block your calls from others' caller IDs, you can dial *67 before the number you're calling. Otherwise you will have to use a call spoofing service. Such a service allows you to call anybody and have a false number display on that person's caller ID.
