FTC Disclosure

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

MagicJack May Really Be Magic

Sometimes I feel like I live in a cave in spite of the fact that I am online most of my waking hours. I watch TV through HULU on my TV. I email, yadda yadda yadda. So when one of my golfing buddies asked me what did I think of the MagicJack and I had to say, huh? I didn’t have a clue what the MagicJack was and what it did. Needless to say my tech know it all status was jeopardized.

After my embarrassing admittance I came home and Goggeled new phone internet product since my questioner hadn’t remembered the name of the product. MagicJack came up and I went to their site. The product is very impressive, the site not so much. What MagicJack costs to purchase is under FAQs. The price is only $39.95 which is so reasonable, why do they bury it in the FAQs? I found that annoying but I was impressed with the product. So was PC Magazine which gave it the product of the year award.

First you must have broadband to consider MagicJack. Then for $39.95 you get a little piece of hardware the size of a match box or tictac container that plugs into your PC’s USB port. Oh, yeah, you have to have a PC as well as broadband in case that wasn’t self evident. You plug this little USB device into your computer, plug the phone line into the MagicJack and bingo you have phone service after you register it. You have phone service with unlimited calling local and national for $19.95 annually. Huh, $19.95 ANNUALLY! It seems too good to be true but all the review I read stressed amazing voice quality and major bargain basement pricing.

With the economy backing so many of us into a frugal corner, this may be the ticket to saving some serious cash. Basic phone service from Comcast or Verizon is approximately $30.00 per month or $360.00 per year which means MagicJack can save you $340.05 annually. MagicJack is certainly worth considering and with the 30 day free trial they are offering you can keep your current phone provider while you see if MagicJack is really as advertised.

This is not a paid blog but if anybody from MagicJack reads this and wants me to do a real world test and review it, send it to me, I’ll give it a try.
