Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition

1 Answer

MajicJack Plus is dialing random phone numbers around the country, when no one at home is dialing.

MajicJack is dialing to random phone numbers around the country, even when no one is using the phone at home. I get phone calls from people and people leave messages on the answering service that say my phone number is showing up on their caller ID and wanting to know why I called. Most of the time, no one is at home to dial the phone. Any clue as to what is going on?

This sounds like a problem that MagicJack support can troubleshoot for you. I have a MagicJack, and I do not have these problems.
You didn't say whether you have your MagicJack device plugged into your computer, or whether (like me) you have your MagicJack connected to your home network directly with just an Ethernet cable.
If you have your MagicJack plugged into a USB port on your computer, there is a possibility that some program installed on your computer is dialing the phone numbers Such a program would almost certainly be malware that you want to remove.
If you do not have an anti-malware program installed on your computer, you should get one immediately. There are quite a few free anti-malware programs, like Avast or AVG, that you can install to help protect your computer from malware.
If you do have an anti-malware program installed, you should check to see if the malware detection rules are current. Most anti-malware programs will let you view the version and last update date of the anti-malware program itself, and the last update date for the detections rules. The rules themselves should be update almost daily, due to the number of new threats emerging every day.

SOURCE: i need a windows vista home premium activation

You can do the activation by phone. Run the Activation Wizard, and it will give you a toll-free number to call to speak to an operator. You then read off a (rather lengthy) code number to the operator, who responds with an (equally lengthy) activation code number that you type in. The operator will stay on the line until you see that activation has been completed.

I am dialing my niece in Trinidad but i am getting busy signals 2 days now


Where are you dialing from/ what country are you in.
All countries have this sequence of numbers to call another country;
IDD COUNTRY CODE CITY CODE PHONE NUMBER Dialing Instructions
  1. Dial the International Direct Dialing (IDD) number. Countries have different numbers, or may have more than one IDD, depending on the carrier or type of service.
  2. Dial the Country Code. In some cases, the country code is shared among countries. For example, the United States, Canada, and much of the Caribbean and Guam use country code 1
  3. Dial the city/area code (if any) for the number you are dialing. Smaller countries may not use city codes or area codes, while larger countries have hundreds of them.
  4. Dial the phone number you are calling.

Where can I find a + symbol on the dial face. I have tried to dial international calls with out the plus symbol and it wont connect me


You don't need a + symbol to dial international.

  1. Step 1: Dial International Call Prefix.
  2. Step 2: Dial Country Code.
  3. Step 3: Dial City Code (area code)
  4. Step 4: Dial Local Number. So let's say you are trying to call a local number in Sao Paulo, Brazil from Miami, Florida, USA. ...
  5. 011 55 11 2345678.

Nwhere is the plus sign on my emerson cordless phone so i can make an international call


The "+" is simply punctuation, used to make the country code stand out. You don't dial it, just as you don't dial the "-" in a local number.

I am trying to dial the UK on my phone but the phone number needs to start with a + sign. I don't know how to do this on my phone.


You don't actually need to dial a plus. The plus notation is often used to write out international numbers, and some telephones do allow for something called plus dialing. To call the UK from the US (which is where I assume you are),you just need to dial the international calling prefix (011), followed by the UK country code (44), and finally the local number you want to reach.

Why is there a plus sign before certain phone numbers?


The + sign indicates the international codes. Thus instead of 0091... being international code for India and 001... for the US and Canada, +91 and +1 are on the mobile. If my number is 9878472630 then the std code is 09878472630 and ISD is 00919878472630 on landline phones and +919878472630 on mobiles. Please feel free to ask more if not understood.

How to get


You don't dial the plus. It's just there to indicate that what follows is a country code. So, for instance, North America is +1.NPA.NXX.XXXX ... but you don't have to dial +1, you just dial 1.

If you are dialing from North America to somewhere else (e.g. +44, the UK) you generally need to dial something first, like 011 to indicate an international call... I mention this only because it took me a while to figure it out the first time I had to call overseas.

What is a dial out code?


A dial-out code is a number that is automatically added when you dial a number. It can be either your area code or (usually) your country code.
Let's say the number stored in your phone is (123) 456-7899. So if your dial-out code is set to "+1", then the number dialed is +1-123-456-7899. This ensures that, wherever you are on this planet, you will always reach that number in the US.

On home phones you can sometimes set a dial-out code (like "123"), and if you dial 456-7899, then it automatically adds your area code to the number.

What sometimes happens is, let's say you bought your phone in the US, but you live in another country, your phone still automatically adds a "+1" to all your numbers stored in your phone unless specified otherwise. That's why you have to set the dial-out code to your specific region.
