    I have a regular magic jack and use it everyday for my work phone. Really nice when I have to call the UK or Ireland

    I have regular MJ and I love it. You get vociemail messages in your email, free phone number and caller ID. It costs $30 a year, unlimited long distance in the US. Plus is better because you don't have to have your computer on, but I'm happy with the regular one.

    The only call I couldn't make was to a local Walmart, but I don't know why, the call just wouldn't go through, and I call other ones. Craigslist won't accept it as a phone number because they know it's over the internet, so I had to add my cell phone to that. Other than that I had no problems, if I am running a Torrent or some heavy program you might get echo, but otherwise it's great.

    I was also looking into this Voip service from HostGator. Looks very nice and a damn good price.
