You guys are ripping consumers off.Bucky: I understand how you feel about it, Jim.Bucky: Thank you for understanding on my part as well. I really apologize for the inconvenience it caused you.

Jim: Hey, its your job/company. Its WRONG what you are doing.Jim: Your now in my calendar to contact every day until this is resolved; moreover, the public will know what's going on. And so will my employees, family and friends - bad news travel fast! I'll also be in touch with the FL attorney general and your local BBB.Bucky: Okay, I understand your frustrations.Bucky: Is there anything else I may help you with today?Jim: Yes, is there a way to look at my call history? inbound phone call numbers and date/times with them?Bucky: Yes, you can check it to your account at the my.magicJack.com.

Jim: You might understand, but you refuse to do anything about itJim: where do i navigate to check?Jim: please be specificJim: I'm logged in now, but don't know where to navigate to see the phone #/history date/timesBucky: Please wait while I check that for youBucky: Thank you for waiting.Bucky: After you login, click Account tab. Click Contacts/Call Logs.Bucky: Select Show Call logs/contacts.Jim: That's not working! It said NONE in my plus accountJim: Why does it show that?Bucky: When you registered the magicJack Plus and make a call, does it connected to your router or computer?Jim: router

Bucky: Please be informed that if the magicJack Plus was connected to your router when you make a call, the call logs can't be shown on your account.Bucky: Unless it will be connected to your computer's usb port.Jim: OK, so what about inbound calls?Jim: I don't care about knowing the #'s I calledJim: another thing you can't do huh?Jim: plus on router does not log ANY inbound calls/#'s w/ a date-time stamp; GREAT!Jim: Am I correct?Bucky: Both outbound and inbound call if the magicJack Plus was connected to your router.Jim: Neither will work?Bucky: If you check your regular magicJAck call logs, it will show the date, time and duration.Jim: Why would I do that? Its not connected anymore?Bucky: I mean, in case your magicJack Plus was connected to your computer's usb port when you make a call it will show the date, time and duration. But if your magicJack Plus was connected to your router, it will not show the call logs to your account.

Bucky: That feature is not yet available as well.Jim: If I delete device: "A9210502022A91" will that mess you up so that you can't transfer/refund/credit my plus account?Jim: You said that with this case when the capability exists - you will perform the transfer/credit. YOU SAID this and I'm holding you and your company responsible for this.Bucky: Transferring of service from regular to magicJack PLus is not yet possible. That feature is not yet available. We don't have exact information when will be the available.Jim: True, but you said when it is you'll refund/credit/transfer my account! You said this in the email thread yourself. So I expect YOU to do that when the feature is activated.

Bucky: Once that feature will be available, that's the time we can transfer your remaining years from old to magicJack Plus. There was no estimated timeframe when it will be.Jim: I know that@ You are repeating yourself; so what I'm asking is if you are going to AUTOMATICALLY do that based on this case WHEN it becomes available; right?Bucky: I suggest to chat us back once that feature will be available. It will not be automatic.Jim: Great, another fine service that you don't offer.Jim: You guys are somethingJim: http://www.ripoffreport.com/directory/magic-jack.aspx
