  1. I have owned a Magic Jack phone for several years. I love it. I call all over the US and Canada free and I speak to my friends and family in Ireland for a very small charge. It is terrific. I can take it with me and anywhere there is a computer I can make free long distance calls. I have friends that have sent them to family in Europe and because the phones all have US area codes they can call here for free. Try one you will love it!
