News: magicJack Plus Offers Free Calling over 3G and Wifi and iPhone App!

I want to hate magicJack.  It reaks of ‘As Seen On TV’ and probably gained a lot of popularity through that channel.  But it seems to be hanging in there and gaining in function and popularity. More power to’em!

Since there was a lot of interest in the ‘magicJack for Android’ article I posted a little while ago, and since this could be used as an official, non-Android based method of having a portable private phone number, I thought it was worth mentioning.

So what you get with the magicJack Plus is a $50 VoIP solution that you can use plugged into a computer, but also.. somehow.. use it via 3G and wifi (I assume with an additional chunk of hardware) as well a a free of local and long distance calling.

The biggest surprise?  Almost as an afterthought, they mention a magicJack iPHONE APP!  Yes, the Android app may be a hacked together affair, but looks like a legit Android app may be a possibility if the iPhone app flies!  Very exciting news for fans of VoIP!

I might have to keep an eye on magicJack and what new products they may have on the horizon. I foresee them renaming themselves and rebirthing much like ValuJet did with AirTran.

  4. I own the original magic jack and its very good, I am dying to try the newer version since its supposed to be better. I cancled my regular phone bill and use the magic jack for my house phone. saved $50 per month. my magic jack works great and my pc is old and I use dsl, I know it really has to be awsome with people who have newer pcs and faster internet connection. anyway mgic jack is great.

  5. I think that would be totally awesome getting unlimited local and long distance calling on the iPhone just by using the iPhones 3G Network. Even if the MagicJack app costs a small reasonal price it would be defiantly worth it.
