Gadget Guy: Magic Jack

Paying monthly phone bills for a land line is quickly becoming a thing of the past. Not only do phone companies have to deal with the widespread usage of cell phones, but now there’s a product called Magic Jack that can allow you to make incredibly cheap or free phone calls with only a $40 initial purchase and very little payments after that.

Magic Jack is something you simply plug into your computer’s USB port and, if you have a high speed internet connection, it will connect to your phone line and you can start making free local and long distance calls, simple as that.

The first year of using Magic Jack is free and, if you like the service, you can sign up for another year for only $20.

Another advantage to the Magic Jack is that it’s extremely portable. You can take the device with you to work or on vacation and then plug in wherever you have a phone and computer. It essentially allows you to keep the same phone number wherever you are without anything in the way of monthly payments.
