Complaint Review: Magic Jack
Magic Jack "Free local and Long Distance calls" no more, Internet
*Consumer Comment: Magic Jack blocking long distance carrier
*Consumer Comment: Magic Jacks work exactly as described.
The website still states in Bold letters "FREE! Local and long distance calls"
I did the live chat to get explanations, and was told that conference line, or platform, are charged. I did ask at what rate, they do not have that information. I would have to pay a block of $10, $20, etc into my account and only then I will receive a recorded message stating how many minutes I can talk the that particular phone number that is not compatible with the Magic Jack system.
Total false advertisement, this did not exist 4 or 5 years ago when i subscribed to Magic Jack. All of a sudden this gets implemented. I would not recommend this service to anyone anymore. I will simply let my service expire in a few months and not bother to renew it anymore.
Most of my calls are to corporations in the US, and I am assuming they use some sort of computer/network phone lines. Most of my calls are now being rejected by that above message to buy prepaid minutes.
Buyer Beware, Its not FREE
