    Default DR to US & Canada almost free calls

    Works for me - next to nothing fees, and if you have a decent connection can save quite a bit ove time.

    There has already been a thread on the MagicJack...
    After reading the first thread I bought mine and it has been great!
    Only problem was that they did not have NC phone numbers so I chose a Florida number and for the first week every time I called someone, the first thing they said was "What the hell are you doing in Florida?!?" (Caller ID) And then I had to explain the whole thing...

    Other than that it has been wonderful...I am looking forward to using it when I move to DR (so are my friends...)

    Question:

    Can you use magicjack with a cellphone or only a land line? Their ad seems to say land line?

    And how much does the magic jack apparatus cost?

    Thanks.

    I'm interested in calling the US and Canada from the DR (North Coast). From the US I use Tel3.com - a prepaid calling card for pennies a call.

    I only have a cell phone and want to know if magic jack works off a cell?

    Thanks.

    a land based telephone plus high speed internet, but not a landline itself. You cannot use a cell phone with the magicjack. Hope this helps.

    Is a land based telephone one that is in the DR, that has a local DR #? As compared to a landline? I have a cell phone with an 829 area code and local number, is that what you mean?

    Thanks.

    I don't think that your landline based phone has to have a numbr or service. I disconnected my service here when I received the MagicJack.

    What they mean by landline phone is a phone with the cord that you plug into the phone jack...but instead of plugging it into a phone jack you plug it into the MagicJack.

    For example, my friend in DR has no phone service but internet service...I can take my laptop and we could plug a phone into the MagicJack and call for hours to the USA!
