How to Hook Up MagicJack

By James Price

MagicJack operates as an alternative to standard home phone services. It offers unlimited local and long distance domestic phone calls to users for a fixed annual fee, which is 40 dollars for the first year, and 20 dollars for each following year. The service can be used for International calling, but there is a small fee for each call. Hooking up the Magic Jack is an easy process, and lets you get started in a relatively short time.
