A MagicJack is a telephone jack that hooks up to any computer that has Internet capability. A lot of people have been choosing the MagicJack over the past couple of years because of its low cost and its portability--you can take the jack anywhere in the world and hook it up to any computer. The device comes with a voice-mail option, but you may choose to disable it.
