Does MagicJack issue Canadian phone nuimbers yet?

If so it's kinda odd a Bell owned store would be selling a cometiting product with their service so directly.

10 bucks/year more and you get a number in Ontario or Manitoba when registering!

Here is the break down
$40 for the usb thingy
$20 for 12mth fee

At the end of the 12th period you pay another $20 for renewal.

Can current users comment on the service?

I always just assumed that the quality of service was crap so I never bothered.

Wrong.

The $40 for the dongle includes one year of service which costs $20/year after the first year to renew. It is an additional $60/year if you want an incoming Canadian number.

I've been using MagicJack with an American number for a couple of years now and it's great. I don't even have a phone line so I use MagicJack or my prepaid cell phone to make all my phone calls.

Works great for my needs. And its portable. I don't do tonnes of long distance calls but works great! The true test will come when I get rid of my landline this week. I do have a cell as well.

You're right, it get cheaper now. $60 is what I paid for the dongle + 1yr about a yr ago.

Do you know where I can sign up for a cdn #?

I have a magicjack with a US number.

Magicjack.ca now says that as of Nov 19 2009, there are some Canadian area codes that it carries. Is this true or phantom?

The reason I ask is because I exhausted this topic (canadian number with magicjack) a few months ago, and maybe this is new. When i goto my account on magicjack.ca after logging in, it says i'm allowed one free number change then $10 after. It takes me to a drop down menu to choose a new area code but only US states are listed. Anyone have any insight on this?

So I guess having to use a us number, that would mean that when I try calling someone it would have the distinct long distance ring? Some pple I call w/o caller id might think I'm a telemarketer :)

Ive been using magic jack for the last year or so. It works great and its cheap. But there are some draw backs like you have to have your computer on and connected to it for it to work (which means it also slows down your computer), its best to have a dedicated computer just for you magic jack. The other is it costs extra for a Canadian number.

I used to think that as well until purchased couple from Tampa, Florida store (Walgreens/CVS) They were running some kind of $10 off $40 special with other items.

Signed up with a florida #, call quality is great (Have actually asked folks to tell if there is any difference and NO one can tell I'm on magic jack or any voip)

Comes in very handy when traveling.

Have connected it to my laptop, when I'm not able to pick up calls, it goes to VM which is also sent to my email :)

Hope this helps.

edit: I'm using it here in Ontario . rogers, express internet :) Just to be clear
