MagicJack Gets Laptop Friendly Setting

MagicJack is the VOIP phone service that costs $20/year for long distance phone calls. I have written a MagicJack review a while back and have been using it for almost over 18 months happily.

In a recent MagicJack software update, I noticed something that will make the road warriors very happy!

One great thing about Magicjack is its portability. Because of the small size of the MagicJack dongle, I could literally carry my home phone number wherever I go as long as I have an Internet connection in my laptop.

MagicJack works great in cable modem or DSL setup. But, I have heard of some issues while using MagicJack with wireless Internet via EVDO or HSDPA connections.

MagicJack has introduced a special setup for Air Cards (3G). Here’s what you will see in your MagicJack toggle

Do not use the Air Card setting for Faxing. However, the Air Card (3G) setting may be your only option for good voice quality if you use wireless cards from AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, etc. or are in certain foreign countries. DO NOT use this option if you have DSL, Cable, FIOS, or WI-Fi.

So, if you have trouble using MajicJack with a 3G tethering signal, try this new option in your MajicJack Review.

    Great update. This VOIP service looks awesome, I make the majority of my calls from my laptop on skype to foreign phones, but when you’re calling phone lines skype charges add up! Definitely to more than 20 bucks a month. I’ll give this magic jack a shot. Cheers

    Magic Jack is great, $19.95 a year and can’t tell it from an twisted pair line. Not sure about the Air Card yet but will be trying it soon. Looking forward to the cell phone interface comming out soon as well.
