MagicJack VOIP sound cuts in and out

I have a MagicJack VOIP device and the sound cuts in and out. I've been online with 4 techs from MagicJack, and they keep acting like my computer is the issue. I have high speed broadband, download speeds 2800kbps upload about 200kbps, AMD Athlon 1.09 GHz, 512 RAM Windows XP home SP2, NVIDIA nForce audio.

    everything on my system is fine, speed tests, upgraded, etc. have gone through everything with the online chat tech person, but still the sound is choppy and breaks up

  • singbad Lee Jan 04, 2009

    I have the same problem, however, it is not the voice on the other end of the phone that is cutting out, I am told it is my voice cutting out. Everytime I use my MJ people say "you're really cutting out" but I don't hear any issues at all. The craproom techs with MJ have me do the same things over and over and over and over and over. ANyone else have this issue?

    i have 2 computers. one is custom made with Vista Home premium and other is ACER Aspire PC, 2.4 Pentium Quard duo with Vista Home premium. I am not able to set up Magic Jack on ACER where as it is working fine on my other computer..Both computer have AVG AV (free edition) and windows FW. It took few minutes to setup MJ on my custom made computer where as ACER hangs up and does not respond.. Why?

    Some times when making calls it does not go through at once. I have to try more than once before a call go through

    I've had my MJ for about 3 months and it has worked ok except recently it cuts in and out on incoming calls. I have no idea why but if my computer and internet connection worked fine for 3 months, that's not it!

  • Dove Spirit Feb 11, 2009

    My phone number is a number for another county. How can I get my number changed to my area??????? Also the dropped calls and repetitive dialing to call someone. It's annoying. When the phone rings and I pick up, I get a dial tone or the person is breaking up. What do I do about this. Especially the phone number. deloris 864-2662840

    I installed MJ and it worked fine for several days. Recently, it has started cutting in and out. I'm frustrated by the lack of troubleshooting info on their sight. Also, not happy about how difficult it is to find a contact to discuss the problem.

    my mj does not works successfully no outgoing calls

  • galeso May 18, 2009

    Call starts fine then one party can not hear the other. Worked great at first. Then a couple of weeks ago the problems started. I will try to up the priority for MJ to see if it is a resources problem.

  • galeso May 11, 2010

    Have you tried to open up the task manager, right click on the "magicjack.exe" process and increase the priority of the process to high?

I just bought a new computer, a mac, and bought the magic jack hoping to have a reliable home phone family and friends could call me on.  But ever since I hooked it up(which was easy to do) my calls cut in and out every call I made-over and over again.  Every call.  Not just here and there.  Anyways, I was reading other people's complaints and it seems that a lot of other people are experiencing this as well. I have Verizon DSL at the midgrade speed-something like 3.0 mps.  Fast enough for MagicJack.  What I was doing was running the supplied router that came with the Verizon package which included a built-in wireless router to run my computer with without the cables(of course).  So I did a lot of research, didn't even call customer support, and someone out there gave me the solution I needed without calling. That person suggested that I not use the wireless and hardwire it instead using an ethernet cable.  Granted, this does have its drawbacks, but ever since I did that every call has been perfect.  So, some of you may be able to get away with cheap home phone service with reliability just by using the ethernet cable instead of the wireless router.  Heck, if its close enough, keep a spare ethernet cable close by, unplugged from your computer(still using the wireless) and when a call does come, quickly hook in the ethernet cable for a near perfect call with no cutting in and out problems.  This is a solution that worked for me and maybe for some of you out there too.  Good luck.

You can use the TCP Optimizer by following these short instructions:

  1. Choose your maximum Connection Speed from the slider bar (the maximum available bandwidth, in kilobits per second)
  2. Choose your Network Interface, or check to Modify All Network Adapters
  3. Pick "Optimal settings" from the radio-buttons near the bottom of the program
  4. Click on the "Apply changes" button and reboot

The issue is the processes which are running on your computer at the same time as the MJ. when running the MJ, the computer will allicate memory to it. However if you need to open a word doc or use another application the MJ will fail. try closing programs on your task bar which you are not using. This has worked many many times

Well, let us see here, all the problems seem to be the same in this post. I to have a magicjack and have noticed one major thing with it. Since it runs through your computer, if your resources are tying up your computer and or memory then it can and will distort the sound on both ends. One viable solution to this is to set up what they call a client computer, seems to work quit well.

MagicJack VOIP sound cuts in and out


Try your magicjack device in another usb port, as they sometimes share an irq internally with other devices, hence the chopped sound. Also make sure your computer is no trying to go into sleep or suspended mode, check the power settings to make sure the system is not shutting down devices in low power or battery mode if using a laptop, make sure the connection speed is good and strong, especially if connected to a laptop, and make sure nothing is hogging the cpu, causing the chopped sound. Also there could be issues with the router. Lastly, perform a firmware upgrade on your magicjack device, restart the machine, and then test it again. Good luck.

MagicJack VOIP sound cuts in and out


MJ ran fine for me from July 2008 to October 2009, when choppiness and cutouts started and continue to today. This is a MJ network problem, there is no fix in your own computer, as I have tried everything - computers, internet speeds, headset with phones unplugged, other Magicjacks. The MJ servers have just become overloaded. MJ is dead.
