How to Change the Magic Jack Phone Number

By Leonardo R. Grabkowski

Magic Jack lets you make phone calls for free. However, Magic Jack must be set up with a particular phone number and must be changed if you change your number or move to a new home with a new phone number. You can change your number anytime to any of the available area codes. There is no limit to the number of times you can change your number, but there is a fee, and the fee is higher after the first time.

Step 1

Visit your Magic Jack account-management page. Sign in to your account using your email address and the password you set up when you signed up for the Magic Jack service. If you don't remember the password, click "Remind Me by Email" to retrieve it.

Step 2

Click on the "Phone Numbers" tab and select "View-Renew-Add."

Step 3

Click "Add a Phone Number" and choose your current number from the drop-down menu.

Step 4

Select the state you want to identify with your new telephone number. This will retrieve the list of area codes and prefixes for the state. Select the area code and prefix you want from the list.

Step 5

Choose if you want a U.S. number or a custom number.

Step 6

Review the summary page. Once you change to the new number, you'll be unable to revert back to the previous number. Click "Checkout."

Step 7

Enter your payment method to finalize your number change and pay for the service.
