Magicjack now offers Canadian numbers

In previous posts, workarounds for Canadian area codes have been discussed. However, Magicjack is now offering Canadian service for 10.00 USD per annum. Its a free change if you have a US number.

No, 416 currently, but I snagged a 647 this morning.


There are several concerns about the EULA as well as the quality of service. Read these carefully. Many complain bitterly and many swear by it.

YMMV

Not so easy there Ma…
Where can you look up the Canadian numbers? I've never been able to locate the numbers available. Do you have to buy the thing first?

Yes, you need to buy it first. Once you own it, you go through the options menu online selecting voice mail, call forwarding etc. In this menu is your number selection.

This isn't completely accurate, I note specifically that Ontario 416 shows available, however, when you click on the select number for a 416 it shows none available. Only 647's were available (at the time of posting) for Toronto.

1) Get MJ
2)Install software until the point of choosing an area code
3)Wait, new numbers are released daily for various area codes
4) Keep refreshing desired area code
5) Get a 416 number.
6) Profit

I had to try for 5 days before landing a 416. The list released that day had 30 numbers available in the desired area code

I see the free trial signup, but I'm missing a page with the prices? Can anyone point me to this?

EDIT* Nevermind, I found it when you try and sign up for the trial:

"Get your magicJack and one year of Free Local and Long Distance Calls.
* On the 31st day you will be charged $39.95 plus $6.95 s&h"

I have found best prices from small mom and pop phone shops. Many of them post their prices on Craigslist.

ordered one last week to ship from the U.S. for the free trial. Curious though if the trial starts at time of shipping or once I activate. Seems like it starts before we even test the thing...

How does it work for local calls? Wouldn't you still need to have service with a regular provider?

you can make your local calls from your magic jack number...to receive local calls from friends etc, they would have to call your magic jack number of your regular land line number. The advantage of this is if you have family/friends anywhere in the U.S. and you can grab an area code number the same as theirs and call each other on the magic jack for free. Of course, you can't receive local calls on it though...
