Hi , i went to Wal-Mart last month and bought a MagicJack. I plugged it in correctly after carefully reading everything on the box , including promised free local and long distance calling.
What i got was a phone service that i can call locally (population 4000). anything long distance and i get a busy signal (3 beeps) and the phone goes silent. I found their website and got to live chat with what seemed to be a real human on the other end. Ifollowed the persons instructions for about 30 minutes, then was told to leave my name , number and email so that "engineers" could get back to me , as my live chat and ability to follow simple instructions was not enough to make this device work.
I run high speed dsl and am fairly computer savvy.This is not user error.Every set of instructions i was given i followed to the letter , only to repeatedly try to make the calls and get the same problem (3 beeps from receiver then silence). Wal-mart sold this thing to me , and MagicJack does not work. Huge thanks to both Wal-Mart and MagicJack for wasting my 40 bucks. PS.
I have a MagicJack Ticket id number and a receipt for purchase of jack from Wal-Mart handy to prove purchase and complaint. Thanks for reading.
