I have a few magicjacks that I use. For ease of use for people that aren't local to me, I have different magicjack numbers in diffferent area codes. I forward those numbers to my local number and in one instant forward those calls to another number that forwards to a different long distant number. Who pays the toll when connecting? It is a local number for those individuals who are dialing out, but they are forwarded to different number unknown to them, which is not local.

The other part that adds complexity is that I have an answering service that transfers calls to me during the day. In the past if a long distance user called and then was transfered to me, they would pay the LD until the transfer and then I would pay the LD once the call service transfered calls to me. (I would get a bill from my call answering service). To get around this, I have put in a magicjack number in front of my answering service that forwards my calls to my answering service (to try to simulate that it is being forwarded from a local number to the answering service, however the call display still shows long distance numbers).

Will that work? Lol. I am using 2 local magicjack numbers, 1 call answering service number and it feels so convoluted. I may draw a diagram to show what I mean, but in the meantime does this make sense to anyone? Smile

Have you ever gotten a bill from MJ after paying your initial fees for making a call within N. America?
