Magic Jack is a service that allows people to use their computer as a phone jack instead of a traditional phone line.The Magic Jack service uses a little Voice Over Internet Protocol (VOIP) phone device that plugs into any USB port on a computer and then a standard phone can plug into the phone jack on the device. One of the main selling points of the magicJack is that the calls made using the device are free and there are no monthly or long distance charges. Instead, there is a small annual fee of $19.99. It is $39.95 to purchase the magicJack device, which includes the first year of free local and long distance calling with free directory assistance, free call waiting, free voicemail, free caller ID, free conference calling as well as a free telephone number.

Automatic hands-free installation and configuration of the software starts when it is plugged in to the computer. The main drawback to using it to replace standard land line telephone service is the need to have the computer on continuously, without it going into sleep mode or standby, as it can only receive calls when connected to the Internet via a live computer connection.

In 2008, magicJack was PC Magazine's editors choice and said that "majicJack's call quality is amazing, everybody should try it." Consumer Reports gives a thumbs up to magicJack saying: Magic Jack A great deal with a few limitations. [1]
