I’ve had my Magic Jack now for about 5 months. It has worked very well for the most part. There was an known issue with some random beeping in the background, but they have sorted that out with a firmware update.I’ve got a Panasonic 3 phone base setup connected to it and all works fine.
I’ve always wondered about connecting the MJ to my WHS since it’s always on. The How To at HomeServerLand looks pretty easy. The trickiest part is setting up the Service to run MJ when no one is logged in. I’ve done it before with other programs and it’s not too hard.
Anyway, if you want a super economical home phone for $19 a year, get one at your local Walmart, Wallgreens, Radio Shack, BestBuy etc. Then connect it to your home PC or WHS! You’ll love it.
What interesting ways have you put Magic Jack to use?
