MagicJack Installation Instructions

When it comes to traveling abroad, keeping in touch with family and friends back home is essential. There are a variety of services that allow Internet users to call home for free or a small fee. Many of these, like Skype, rely on a computer program to connect your call. MagicJack does them one better and acts like a real telephone. By connecting the magicJack to a computer, users can register an actual U.S. phone number and make calls back home for no cost except the annual subscription fee. Installing a magicJack takes just a few minutes with a basic Internet connection.
