    "About 90% of the time" ... when people try to call me, they get a busy signal instead (but I'm not on the phone). And "about 60% of the time" ... when I try to call other people ... it eventually stops ringing ... but there's no one on the other end; I just get silence.
    Later on, I usually find out that the call went through, and they were talking to me ... but I couldn't hear them.
    What's even more strange is that the Magic worked "pretty good" ... "for the most part" ... until the 31st day that I had it up and running. Also .. the sound quality is very inconstant; ranging from "pretty good" -to- "can't tell what they other person is saying".
    Also ... if you suffer ANY interruption to your internet signal .. the Magic Jack will stop working entirely until you reset it; but you won't get any message telling you that there is a problem like that; so you can go for days thinking that no one was trying to call you, even if they were.

Hi,

Try unplugging all telephone (including the base unit), then try to call the number again. If there is still a busy signal, then the problem is with your telephone line/connection and you need to call your phone provider. On the other hand if the number rings, then chances are that base unit is defective (or one of your other phones physically connected to the tel line.).

To verify that it is the base unit or one of the other wired telephones,  reconnect them one by one and determine which of them will cause the busy signal. Problems like this can be caused by a power surge, near lightning strike or a simple component failure.

If it is the base unit, it is very likely an electronic problem and therefore would require familiarity with components and circuitry diagnosis, soldering and use of a DVM. Perhaps your best bet would be to seek the services of a qualified phone technician.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Magicjack phone


Have you tried a new telephone cables going to the magic jack? That would be the first place that I would start.

Can you hook up a telephone to the existing line that's plugged into the magic jack then see if the noise occurs. If yes, then replace the cable. If no, replace the magic jack module.

Magic jack contact number


As far as I can tell, Magic Jack doesn't have a public phone number. They have a knowledgebase and "live chat" support during various business hours. That will be your best bet for contacting them and having your issue resolved. Here is the URL:

Fax magicjack


  1. Operating Systems
    • As of 2010, the Magic Jack works well with Windows XP and Vista machines. Windows 7 has reported problems listed on their Microsoft Answers forum.
    Do Not Support
    • According to the Magic Jack company website they "...do not officially support using faxing with Magic Jack."

    Testing the Fax
    • Test your fax machine with Magic Jack by turning off the error correction on the machine and using the slowest speed available. If successful at that speed, increase the speed and check if it continues to work.

I have magic jack and am trying to use it for a medical device because I have a pacemaker and defibulater and it need to be monertered by a LATITUDE COMMUNICATOR.Can magic jack be used for the LATITUDE...


I have and use Magic Jack too..Does your Latitude Communicator just plug right into a phone jack with a regular phone cord? If it does, then it should work...You will have to always leave your laptop on and never turn it off because Magic Jack requires a constant connection...Plug your equipment into the back of your Magic Jack and then with another phone, call the company that monitors your pacemaker/defibulator and ask them to "test" your line to see if you will receive a signal from them through your Magic Jack...You will to have to plug it all in and then test or you won't ever know...When I plug my home phone into the back of my Magic Jack, I receive a dial tone just like it was connected to a home based landline phone

Machine not sending information.


Yes, most definately so. There are ways to boost the output signal of your machine but these days nobody has had to do it because lines are much clearer in the western hemisphere. The Magic Jack is great for voice calling but the faxes need instant responses from each other to progress through the initial training protocol and onto the document transmission. You may, if you have one, try another magic jack. It could be down to your particular Magic Jack. Try faxing without the Magic Jack.

Magic Jack- Other person hears beeping every few seconds


You can use Magic Jack customer care at http://www.magicjack.com/2/customercare.asp

I talked to 3 operators. The long and the short of it is that they had me:
1. remove a Majic Jack related folder from an applications folder
2. insert MJ1 and MJ2 in the Windows Firewall exceptions
3. format the Majic Jack software "drive"....and then install an upgrade.

Based on this, I think the problem crops up in the Majic Jack software. So far, it has fixed my problem, though I've not made a long call yet.

I found the Majic Jack operators very helpful. Be sure to have them step you through this.

Good Luck!

My phone lines keep on crossing!


If you are in a private residence go to the demarcation box and unplug the phone jack that connects the line to your home. Plug your phone directly into the jack which is now looking at the line and has eliminated your house wiring from the circuit. Make an outgoing call and have someone call you back. If the trouble persists, the trouble has just been proven to be on the line which is a phone company problem. Busy signals occure when a short is detected on the line so you may have cable trouble in your area. Thank You. Jerry
