Editors' review

FREE calls with magicJack lets you place calls and receive both calls and voicemail for free, all through a familiar set of controls.

Pros

Intuitive interface: When you're using magicJack, you might forget you're not actually using the regular phone app on your device. The app imports your contacts, so they're right where you expect them to be. And there's a log of all your recent calls, as well.

Clear calls: All of the calls we placed through magicJack were clean and clear. There was no detectable static or interference, and the connection was completed right away. The voicemail also worked well and was easy to access.

Cons

Different numbers: The number the app shows under your account for people to use to call you isn't the same as the number that shows up on their phone when you call them. You also don't get to pick your number, which might be a drawback to some people. Also, people calling you who don't have magicJack service could incur long-distance charges.

One account, one device: Once you log in to magicJack on your phone, you can't log in again with a different account on that device.

Bottom Line

magicJack is not a perfect service. It would be nice if text messaging were supported, and there are a few other issues mentioned above. But overall, the app works well, the controls are clear, and the service is free, which makes all of the other issues much less of a concern. If you're looking for an alternative phone service, this is definitely worth a shot.

    "Perfect for lowering cell phone bill"

    December 21, 2012   |   By 212JohnNY

    Version: FREE Calls with magicJack 2.1.6213

    Pros

    1. can use instead of using cellphone plan (if you have Data plan)
    2. perfect sound quality
    3. price
    4. do you really need any other reason???

    Cons

    Really?????

    Summary

    I lowered my cellphone bill by a huge amount, because I use this regularly now. The best part is that now, I have the same number to my home office and my work cell phone, fantastic!

    If some are wondering how, it's because I use a magicjack plus for my home office and now that I downloaded the app, I just registered it under my regular account.

    It feels so good, and professional, to never miss a work call anymore. Some people only have my office number, now they have both. Best part, they are the same number!

    Could not be more satisfied

    "Why didn't I know about this sooner???"

    December 21, 2012   |   By DuPree252

    Version: FREE Calls with magicJack 2.1.6213

    Pros

    Pairs with you usb magicjack
    does not cost extra to make calls to regular phones
    can call anyone with a US or Canada number
    user friendly interface

    Cons

    none so far

    Summary

    I have used this for about 2 months now, stumbled upon it by chance. I love my magicjack, and now I can use wherever I am!!! Just have my smartphone with me and I can make free calls. It's perfect because now I don't have to worry about my minutes.

    If it was possible, I would remove my phone service from my cellphone and just keep the data plan

    "A Legit Phone App!"

    December 21, 2012   |   By FrankoLoJoe

    Version: FREE Calls with magicJack 2.1.6213

    Pros

    Can use it anywhere with coverage (3g or 4g)
    Use it like regular cellphone
    Have all your contacts added automatically
    good, clear sound
    no dropped calls

    Cons

    Registration can take a little time, maybe a minute or 2

    Summary

    So much better that all the other useless products out there. Unlike all other apps, this one can call to regular phone numbers, not just people with the same app. Given if you have an account with magicjack of course.

    Great app for those who own a regular magicjack
