    "Does what I got it for."

    August 19, 2014   |   By Chris_Richard

    Version: Magicfeatures Plugin for MagicJack 4.0

    Pros

    Works perfectly as advertised.

    Cons

    None none and none again. Sorry, CNET wanted ten characters. Silly when four will often do.

    Summary

    YES, you DO need to be aware that your dongle has to be plugged into your computer for this plugin to work. It does not work over the internet or LAN, however if you can deal with that fact this little piece of code works flawlessly.

    FYI to all: Plugins by nature often "break" when the main software is updated. It's not that big a deal for such an inexpensive plugin. Just wait a bit and they'll update it, which is exactly what happened with this plugin. By the time I downloaded and tested it, it worked perfectly fine.

    I got it solely for the anonymous call block and blacklist features, put my own cell into it, and now my phone doesn't make a sound when a blacklisted number calls. For twenty bucks even though it has to be plugged in, it's a far better option than any of the standalone gadgets that do this, some of which, from the reviews I've read are unpredictable.

    "Very good product but not working with latest MJ update"

    July 30, 2014   |   By mslhf

    Version: Magicfeatures Plugin for MagicJack 2.11

    Pros

    Does all functions very well
    Very easy to setup

    Cons

    They have not responded to emails regarding product problem with the latest MJ update. The problem is the phone does not ring, but all other features are working.

    Summary

    I would give this 5 stars if they fix the problem

    "Works great, if you're not a moron."

    July 27, 2014   |   By tjcaruana

    Version: Magicfeatures Plugin for MagicJack 2.11

    Pros

    This worked great, does exactly what it states, except with the MJ update that just came out a couple of days ago. I'm hoping for an update, because this has been so helpful in my house.

    Cons

    Stopped working with the MJ update on 7/25/14ish

    Summary

    Look, don't be a tool. OBVIOUSLY if you have this software downloaded to your COMPUTER but your MJ isn't hooked up to your computer it ain't gunna work, duh. I mean really people, DUH. I can't believe that people would actually leave a review saying that COMPUTER SOFTWARE didn't work for a MJ Plus when the MJ Plus isn't plugged into the computer. HOW STUPID ARE WE?!?!?!

    "Worthless for Magic Jack Plus"

    March 04, 2014   |   By bfriendz2001

    Version: Magicfeatures Plugin for MagicJack 2.11

    Pros

    NONE since the whole purpose of getting the Magic Jack Plus was to not have to have it hooked up to my computer/laptop all the time to receive phone calls. That is why I didnt even mess with the regular magic jack!

    Cons

    Have to have the device in the usb port of your computer or laptop in order to use any of the features it states it has and to receive or make phone calls! This defeats the purpose of waiting to get the Magic Jack Plus whihc does not require you to have it hanging out of your computer or having your computer on all the time.

    Summary

    Thankfully you get the free 7 day trial and within minutes of downloading it, we decided it would serve NO PURPOSE for us. I would like to find these features some where else, especially the caller id call waiting.

    "Great Concept but misleading to say it work on PLUS!"

    November 23, 2013   |   By 1PunchKO

    Version: Magicfeatures Plugin for MagicJack 2.11

    Pros

    Great concept, perfect for anyone still using the old MagicJack adaptor that connects direct to your computer where the phone only works when your computer is on. Lot's of great features for a very fair price I would have been glad to pay.

    Unlike what others have said, things have changed and they do now have customer support on their website (I don't know how the respond, I didn't try but their is the ability to contact the author of this software there).

    Cons

    Unfortunitly, very misleading to say the new version of MagicJackFeatures Plugin is now been redesigned to be fully compatible with the MagicJack Plus because the whole point of the "Plus" is to not need a computer connected 24/7 to work but rather opperate through your router.

    As copied direct from the authors site "quote"...
    =====================================================
    Can't Get It To Work With MJ+ Attached To Router

    The Magicfeatures Plugin will only work when a regular magicJack or magicJack Plus dongle is plugged into the USB port of a computer. You must also disconnect the Internet cable from the magicJack Plus dongle.
    =====================================================

    In short, this is to disable the whole point of the Plus converting it back to the old MagicJack dongle in the first place and forfitting the whole idea of having purchased the plus so "NO - IT IS NOT COMPATIBLE WITH THE MAGIC JACK PLUS".

    Summary

    Unless you are willing to give up the idea of why you purchased a MagicJack Plus in the first place (to be able to connect the dongle directly to the router without the use of a computer having to run 24/7 in order to have phone service) than no, this software is not compatible with the "PLUS" as advertised here and is "VERY MISLEADING" which looks really bad but atleast they give you 7 days to see what is more important to you - Not having to run a bunch of wires to your computer making it less mobil which sucks especially for laptops and having to keep it running all day and night to get phone calls or to have these nice features.

    Oh why hasn't MJ figured out how to do this already?

    The choice of what is more important is yours.

    "Makes My MagicJack Really Useful"

    March 29, 2012   |   By DreamMaker2012

    Version: Magicfeatures Plugin for MagicJack 2.09

    Pros

    1. Gives the ability to screen out all calls except those on my list.
    2. It displays the name of the person calling on my phone and also speaks it out.
    3. Lets me call my husband without having to punch in his extension number.
    4. Lets me forward my phone calls to my cellphone using my phone keypad.

    Cons

    I can't think of any at the moment and would have probably decided to dump magicJack for something with the features I really need if I hadn't found this program.

    Summary

    Turns a magicJack into something definitely worth keeping.

    "Definitely worth the money !!!"

    March 27, 2012   |   By Richard_Steinbrenner

    Version: Magicfeatures Plugin for MagicJack 2.09

    Pros

    My wife has to have 7 digit dialing and this gives it to her.
    Adds caller id support for call waiting calls.
    The talking caller id feature is a plus so we can also hear who is calling when we aren't in front of the phone. As long as the number is in the speed dial table it also announces the name of the caller.
    Being able to block certain people and telemarketers from getting through.

    Cons

    None really.

    Summary

    I have been using this plugin for over a year and highly recommend it. Whenever I have had a question I have been able to use the product support site at http://support.pcphonesoft.com to get help.

    "Very much worth the 20$"

    March 17, 2012   |   By dewcansam

    Version: Magicfeatures Plugin for MagicJack 2.09

    Pros

    1-The Caller ID Voice Announce. Once I set the names and numbers of the 50 speed numbers the computer then announces the name.
    2-Mostly allow or deny system. THE WAY EVERY PHONE SYSTEM SHOULD BE.
    3-Hangup blocked calls. I love this!! Now telemarketers and collectors cant even leave a message :)

    Cons

    1-Most of these should have been built into MJ by default. Sad that I had to find this great program by mistake.
    2-Program could have been designed a little better. Or have a separate page for the speed numbers. Because the window is a little crowded.
    Very trivial Cons as the Pros easily outweigh the cons.

    Summary

    Having worked as tech support for a telecommunications system I have a little story for you. I had service through the company i was working for. When I tried to block a couple of numbers it kept telling me that i was entering them in wrong. After alot of time trying to figure it out. And knowing that if i called in I would have gotten someone like me. And I would have told anyone that was the way the system worked and that there was nothing that could be done about it. Then pouring over TOS i noted a short statement which led me to call someone i knew in billing. When I got the surprise answer i was not looking for. It turns out that you pay for call blocking then the company also gets money from the collectors to prevent you from blocking their numbers. No more. Just enter 8**-***-**** into the reject call list and NO calls from any of them. lol I Love it !!!

    Updated on Mar 17, 2012

    Sorry, Have one other little issue i forgot about. Trying to purchase the program was a hassle. My first attempt did not go through then 24hrs later after I still had not got any info back. I tried again. Funny thing was that it put BOTH my 1st and 2nd orders through. Luckily my 2nd attempt got denied and then I was able to cancel the 2nd transaction.
