    I have the same problem, bought the magicjack in april of 2008, worked fine up until within the last month. I have been online with magicjack tech support 3 times now. they told me reformat, i have tried that a couple of times, has not worked. I was online with them last friday 3/6/08 and was told they were doing a big update there at and i should wait a couple of hours and try the magicjack and it should work, waited but it still isn't working. i have windows vista, IE 7.0.6. I had downloaded a few other programs thinking they might be the problem, tried uninstalling them, but it still doesn't work, tried going into the registry and blowing away anything magicjack, that didn't work, have tried different phones, have tried different usb ports. One other thing, I can make calls with my magicjack on my laptop.

I haven't had any problems with my MJ, but that, I think, is because I port forwarded MJ. That's what seems to be your problem. You need to port forward your MJ into your firewall/router. If you don't think you have a firewall and/or router, your a noob. All pc have a firewall, at least. Windows has a firewall. If you get your internet connection is from broadband then you most likely have a router with a firewall. Some routers are buit into the broadband modem. Figure out what kind/name your firewall, router, modem is, and go to Click on the routers model number, then click on MagicJack. If you just have a firewall, and no router, they have a page just for firewalls. If your not sure what you have then click the "Start Here" link on their first page.

Can a security system be run off magic jack

It should work just fine as long as you are not using the old MagicJack or a newer one via USB connection to through a computer as our will create too much of a latency or delay to operate properly. It should be a newer model connected directly to a router via the Ethernet connection.

I'm having problems getting my old home number to my magic jack

To switch a phone number from one company to another, you need to request your new phone company (magicJack) to "port" the number from your old company.

The key to making this work is that you can't cancel the old server until the porting is complete. After magicJack has ported the number, and you've confirmed that it's working, that's when you can call your old phone company to cancel service.

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 " 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.

Question: is the magicJack plugged directly into the USB port on the computer or through a USB hub? If it's plugged into a hub, try plugging it directly to the port on the machine.
