    "Worthless for Magic Jack Plus"

    March 4, 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.

    "Spend the $20..."

    January 31, 2012  |  

    Version: Magicfeatures Plugin for MagicJack 2.082

    Pros

    Everything....The only thing missing is custom voice mail.
    Otherwise, my voicemail works! Block anything..forward....custom blocking!

    Cons

    Nothing to complain about....even the price wasnt too bad for a lifetime program. A voicemail upgrade would be fantastic and a fax tone ring.

    Summary

    Try it...if you are strapped or want a land line, this will put you in the regular phone zone!

    "I Love Magicfeatures!"

    June 17, 2011  |   By brianmef

    Version: Magicfeatures Plugin for MagicJack 2.061

    Pros

    This allows me to block unwanted phone #'s or if I want, I can block any area code altogether such as 800, and 888 #'s and I now can block "Anonymous calls". Another thing I like is that I now have caller ID with name and not just the number.

    Cons

    I wish it had MAGIC RING FOREVER built into the program also. I feel the program is a tad over priced but I did buy this at a 20% discount for a Fathers Day sale they were having.

    Summary

    This program allows me to do what Magicjack doesn't and should. It adds over 20 features to Magicjack. I am glad I found this program. I no longer have telemarketers calling since I can block them now and that's the main reason why I bought this program.

    "The ONLY accessory available for Magic Jack & it's good"

    February 7, 2011  |   By EricTalaska

    Version: Magicfeatures Plugin for MagicJack 1.11

    Pros

    Block calls, faster call forwarding, record calls

    Cons

    A bit pricey for such a small program. But it is exclusive with no competition.

    Summary

    I recommend it. It's a one time fee of $20, but well worth it as you can keep your sanity by blocking unwanted calls and have the piece of mind by recording calls (great for business).
