Magic Jack Price
Anyone who has heard any of the hype around this awesome voice over IP device has probably heard that it’s “one set fee,” for unlimited calls to the US and Canada. But what exactly is the Magic Jack price like and are there any hidden costs?
The first thing to tell you about the Magic Jack price is that your first payment will be $39.95. This includes the device itself and the first year’s service. The service includes unlimited calls to the US and Canada, free voice mail, call waiting, a phone number and caller ID.
You can purchase an additional year at the same time as your initial purchase if you like, at the cost of $19.95. Each subsequent year is also charged at $19.95 per year, the equivalent of 38 cents per week for unlimited calls. That’s a pretty unbeatable package, particularly when you consider the competition.
Skype, for example, does offer a $1.09 per month plan that enables you to make unlimited calls to US landlines. But that’s only landlines and only in the US. Plus, you’ll pay additional fees if you want a number to receive incoming calls meaning it works out pricier than Magic Jack for a like-for-like service.
If you’re talking about the standard cell and land-line providers, then prices, of course, vary. But our research has failed to uncover any provider offering unlimited calls to US and Canadian numbers for a mere 38 cents per week.
Does this Magic Jack price all seem just a little bit too good to be true? Well, let’s not forget the other costs. This is a voice over IP service, so you will need a broadband internet connection and preferably an unlimited download package. Limited bandwidth or poorly performing internet connection could hinder the performance of Magic Jack.
Of course, there will be a cost associated with this, but if you’re in a household where you would use the Internet anyway, then this really isn’t a notable addition.
There are also costs associated with Magic Jack if you want to call numbers outside of the USA or Canada. The prices are great, but you will need to purchase prepay minutes to make those calls. The rates are pretty hard to beat though.
For example, calling the UK will cost you a tiny 2 cents per minute to a land-line and 23 cents per minute to call a cell phone and you can make land-line calls to Australia for just 2.5 cents per minute. So the rates are good, to say the least!
