I hope this actually comes out next month, as I'm planning to migrate from my 2nd gen MJ to this. Is there any info as to whether you'll be able to port your old MJ number?

The lawyers for AT&T screwed up. This was supposed to be a case of copyright infringement. You see, AT&T wrote the book on sleazeball Telco tactics, and MJ has been stealing their best ideas. Wink

Actually, I don't think MJ has even approached the level of sleaze that AT&T was, at their worst. (the real, original Ma Bell AT&T, that is).

By the time it, any appeals, and any appeals of the appeals, wind through the court system, we will all be talking to each other by thinking about it through the implanted chip in our brains.

It makes me wonder if AT&T is still providing the international connections for MJ. That was confirmed before, correct?

Thanks for the link. It was interesting to see page 24, where MJ explains why they are exempt from USF. For me, that's the first I've seen it from the horse's mouth. They are worried about potential pending changes to the USF rules.

Here's the quote (emphasis mine):

"Universal Service Fund (ďUSFĒ) - The FCC and many PUCs have established USF programs to ensure that affordable telecommunications services are widely available in high cost areas and for income-eligible telephone subscribers. Other fees are imposed to meet the costs of establishing and maintaining a numbering administration system, to recover the shared costs of long-term number portability, and to contribute to the Telecommunications Relay Services Fund. All telecommunications carriers must contribute to these funds, and the requirements have been expanded to interconnected VoIP providers. The FCC and many PUCs have for a number of years been considering substantial changes to the USF system including changes in contribution methodology. Some proposals, if adopted, could have a material adverse effect on the Company. Federal USF fees are only applied if a company bills for telecommunication services. The Company does not bill for domestic local and long distance telecommunication services."

And this has what to do with MagicJack Plus?

I do believe, you can correct me if I'm wrong, but there is a whole section devoted to MagicJack alternatives.

I'm sure it's real. Can't imagine anyone going to the trouble of making a fake MJPlus device for a youtube review video that only a relative handful of people will watch.

That should be a big sign (good or bad to be determined) that it's right around the corner.
