Currently trying the trial version. Had it up and running in 5 minutes. Sound clarity is very good. I don't understand the complaints from people who said they spent a lot of money on this; the software has a 30 day free trial and any Magic Jack drive will work - new or used. I personally bought one on Ebay for $5.00 and use it for this.
magicJack started separately charging for calls I made to by brother in a nearby town. They also cut off my call forwarding feature. I didn't get any notice about it either.
Using Google Voice all my calls are free again and I have call forwarding back again too. It is also nice to see the caller's name and that is something my magicJack never did at all.
Works so much better than my regular magicJack setup ever did I think it could them out of business.
Worth trying. I ended up getting the pro version with 7 digit local dialing and the talking caller id feature included. Recommend setting up a separate Gmail email account to only use with the GVJackApp for phone calls.
Set it up for my daughter to use at the house to help keep her mobile phone bill down. Also supports sending and receiving text messages.
Works so well I am planning to set one up to use when I am at the office instead of taking calls on my mobile phone. The mobile phone coverage is terrible inside my office building so this should keep me from having to run to the closest window to try to get better reception when I talk to customers.
It was really easy to set up. Downloaded the GVJackApp, signed in using a Gmail email account and started placing calls. Like the fact that it displays and can even speak the caller's name when a call arrives.
-You will need tech support and their tech support via email only is completely worthless and they are very rude. Obviously, they are fat losers who hide behind their little computer all day They just post the same canned response to every problem. -This product is complete garbage. The few times when it would actually work, the calls sound horrible.

Obviously, they are fat losers who hide behind their little computer all day being complete jerks to people. They take out their loser lives on people trying to get help.

Actually I have used their technical support and the answers were always right. The call quality for me is so good the people I call don't even know I am not using a landline. In any case, the call quality itself is provided by Google Voice and has absolutely nothing to do with the GVJackApp.
I can either phone somebody just like I would normally with a phone or use my computer and open my Gmail contacts list to look up a customer and click to call them that way. My customer's names also show up on the phone display when they call me. Set up a ring schedule to automatically send calls outside normal works hours to voice mail.
At the moment, I can't think of anything negative.
No longer receive a phone bill or pay a subscription. Uses my Gmail contacts list and displays the caller's name on my phone. The talking caller id is also great if I am in the next room watching TV but want to know who is calling.
None really. Works a lot better than my magic jack use to work.
The feature I like the most is that I was able to set it up to ring my mobile phone and my gvjack phone at the same time. The mobile phone coverage in my house is terrible so this was a good solution for me not to mention the fact that the phone calls are free.
According to your logic you would contact Samsung that made your cell phone to change your incoming phone number for the phone service you have from Verizon. If you don't get it you should call Verizon in this case. For the situation you are complaining about you should contact Google Voice.
In any case, it works fine for me and all I had to do to get help from PCPhoneSoft the one time I had a question was ask for it.
My experience has been quite the opposite and is sounds like you are misguided and misinformed for whatever reason.
Remember the phone service is provided by Google Voice. Your anger is focused at the wrong party altogether. You can just Google "Change Google Voice Phone Number" to find the correct answer to your question from Google Voice's forum. You could also just set up a new Gmail account and incoming phone number and sign in with that.
