The link to a Google docs page listing phone numbers that supposedly won't work with MagicJack Plus claims no numbers work in 219 area code. That would be a real show-stopper for me since most of my relatives are there, including my dad. Thank goodness I got through to him just now via my new MagicJack Plus. The audio quality was excellent.

I agree, but will GV continue to be free after this year?

Now this is weird. Suddenly, the 310 area started working on Magic Jack again.

I'm going to contact them and find out if there's another issue that might be causing the problem.

I'll also test out the 408 area code to see if that's working again.

The 408 area is back and working on Magic Jack. I would really like to know what's going on and why the "to call a conference line or a platform" error message seems to come and go on certain area codes.

Not only did they screw us but this piece of shit operator is practically throwin it in my face like there is nothing I can do and just let them screw me and smile about it.

Screw that, is lawsuit time, if anyone is interested in filing a class action suit against MagicJack please reply with a post saying so.

Also this piece of shit hung up on me, or just kicked me out of chat.


Please wait for a site operator to respond.
You are now chatting with 'Dory'
Your Issue ID for this chat is LTK554085041821X

Michael: Dory, I'm having a problem calling a number.

Dory: Hello, how may I help you?

Michael: It plays some message saying conference call platform

Michael: How can I fix this?

Dory: Can you tell me the exact message you've heard when making calls?

Michael: To call a conference line or platform visit us on magicjack.com/prepaid

Michael: My account is paid already

Dory: I see. Thank you for the confirmation, Michael.

Dory: If you are prompted to purchase prepaid minutes in order to call a certain number.

Michael: So what's the problem?

Dory: There's no problem with that, Michael. If you are prompted to purchase prepaid minutes in order to call a certain number.

Michael: how is that? I paid for my magicjack already, I'm supposed to have unlimited calling to anywhere in the United States.

Michael: what the hell

Dory: I need you to please visit our TOS (TERMS OF SERVICE) Section 4 what is free and what is not.

Dory: Customer Contract

Michael: I didn't sign up for this

Michael: this is new

Michael: when I purchased the service there was nothing in the TOS stating this.

Dory: It was clearly stated on the TOS that you have agreed during the registration.

Michael: No actually it was not.

Dory: Kindly visit TOS and check section 4.Please click on that link I gave.,

Michael: This is new

Michael: that link is pointless, you guys made changes after I purchased my service under the old TOS.

Dory: Customer Contract

To view the Terms of Service (TOS) click here or visit http://www.magicjack.com/tos/.

Michael: You guys are going to have a big class action lawsuit for this.

Michael: You think just because you edit a page it makes it ok?

Michael: I have the old TOS saved

Michael: would you like to see it?

Michael: This prepaid crap is new.

Michael: And I never agreed to it.

Dory: We didn't edit the TOS.

Dory: You cannot complete the registration without agreeing the TOS,

Michael: I'm telling you that there was no section like that before

Michael: I did agree to the TOS

Michael: but not this one

Michael: the old one

Michael: and now you have changed it after the fact.

Michael: I will not be renewing my service and whats more I will be actively persuing a class action lawsuit against your company.

Michael: I'm sure I'm not the only one who is upset about this.

Michael: It's illegal to change an agreement and try to enforce it after it has been made.

Dory: We didn't change anything on the TOS>

Dory: Kindly please read it when you have time.

Dory: Is there anything else I may help you with today?

Michael: I have a copy of it, would you like to see it?

Dory: You don't have too, as we are know all of the TOS>

Michael: Well see what a judge has to say about that, I have your old TOS.

Dory: Okay.

Dory: Is there anything else I may help you with today?

Michael: You have NOT helped me.

Michael: is there a supervisor there?

Dory: There's nothing who can help you with that.

Dory: It's only you who can help.

Dory: You are asking to purchase prepaid minutes to call that number, then you have too.

Michael: so basically you guys decide to rip off your customers and then tell them they can't do anything about it.

Dory: No other fix for that in order for the call goes through.

Michael: No, it's in the United States

Dory: You need to purchase prepaid minutes.

My yearly subscription will end on 1/15/13. I currently have Time Warner cable for my TV ($60) & internet ($60), per month for a total of $120. Time Warner cable's homepage has a bundled price of $120 per month for TV, internet, & phone. I'm contemplating that deal and not renewing my MJ+, I'm planning to delete my credit card information from my Magic Jack account, and cancel my account in December. Should I go so far as to also cancelling my credit card and asking my credit card company to issue me another credit card number so as to avoid Magic Jack pulling a fast one and charging my account without my knowledge?

- Not necessary. Just go into your MJ account online, be sure that Auto Renew is disabled (turn it off if it isn't already turned off), and then delete your credit card from the account.

Thanks for the advice. However, it looks like I'll be keeping my MJ+ active. The reason, Time Warner Cable informed me that my MJ+ phone number cannot be ported over to Time Warner Cable (I'm not sure why but it is what it is). I will still be getting the Time Warner Cable bundled price of $89 a month for TV, internet, and phone (for one year at that bundled price). They will assign me a new phone number which I don't intend to use since I'll keep my MJ+. The bundled price will save me some money going from about $140 a month (unbundled without a phone) to about $100 (bundled with a phone). Keeping my MJ+ phone number is important to me so I don't mind paying the $29 yearly subscription and $9.99 annual porting fee as well to keep my MJ+ phone number alive. On 1/15/12, I had my AT & T phone number ported to MJ+ and it has been working excellent ever since. I hope it'll continue to work as usual. And even though I don't use the call forwarding on my MJ+, it seems deceptive to me that Ymax discontinued the free call forwarding and now charges for it without advance notice and pulling the rug out from under us all.

You could port your MJ number to a better VOIP provider, this way keeping your number AND getting some real use of it. [/quote]

I saw this thread after dealing with these idiots just today. All they did was read of of a index card and did no testing whatsoever. The third and final chat the one girl had me reboot my modems, routers, and unplug all my MJ's for 1 min while she claimed to refresh my account.

I live in VT and just started have some strange issues with MagicJack Plus. I plug mine directly into my router, do not use a computer or software. Certain numbers within the same area code & prefix I call (that I have had no problems prior) would be hit or miss all week mostly getting FAST BUSY SIGNAL. Other days I can call then no problem. At first I thought they might be really busy, but then be busy all week? Even at midnight when they are closed? Until I called from my cell phone I saw there was no problem getting through using any other device.

I called my oil company this morning, had a few dropped calls, got messages of ALL CIRCUITS BUSY, then suddenly I cannot call my oil company. Things were acting screwy all day. I was just talking to them this morning a few hours ago. Then I started getting these "Conference Call" recorded messages when I tried to call them back. I have read all these posts about the problems you guys are having with entire area codes and what not, my issue has a twist....

After suddenly getting these messages after calling the same place I have been all year (my fuel company) I realize I can no longer call them as of today. So I started calling other numbers in the same town. Some I could get through, others not. I called the sandwhich store next to them, I called the hardware store accross the street and got through fine. Now this is small town VT and population is under 1000. All numbers are 802-228-xxxx. I broke out the phone book and started dialing random numbers for homes and business's.

802-228-8866 cannot call, get recording
802-228-8847 cannot call, get recording
802-228-3344 CAN CALL NO PROBLEM
802-228-7900 cannot call, get recording
802-228-7566 cannot call, get recording
802-228-2087 CAN CALL NO PROBLEM
802-228-7222 cannot call, get recording
802-228-5374 CAN CALL NO PROBLEM
802-228-6200 CAN CALL NO PROBLEM
802-228-8468 cannot call, get recording
802-228-2001 cannot call, get recording
802-228-8477 cannot call, get recording

802-228-0001 CAN CALL NO PROBLEM
802-228-0002 cannot call, get recording

802-228-8472 cannot call, get recording

802-228-2087 cannot call, get recording
802-228-2088 cannot call, get recording
802-228-2089 cannot call, get recording
802-228-2090 cannot call, get recording
802-228-2091 CAN CALL NO PROBLEM
802-228-2092 cannot call, get recording

Called at least 50 numbers and 1 out of every 5 I could get through. These are all same prefix, same CO, and some locations I can spit on them as they are next to each other. Now if I was not able to reach ALL of these, I could see that this new FCC RULE, or TOS rule was in place somewhere. But this is a small town 25 miles from me and all withing the USA and all within the same CO.

I have to change oil companies and break my contract now. I have to tell them it is because I have MAGIC JACK and can't call them anymore.

I had to call another office they have south of me, to have them pass a message to have the Ludlow office call me at home. They can call me, but I cannot call them.

What is one to do with these jokers.... I have THREE of them (one for each child to have their own number) and made sure I paid for FIVE YEARS service in advance before the price went up so I could be locked in.

My phone stopped working today. I have read through all of the posts and I have to say this is a load of BS!! My area code is 541 Southern OR. My family and I will have to wait and see if anything changes. If it doesn't we will have to search for something hopefully better than this flip-flopping company. I do have a question; will the people who call in to my magicjack plus number be charged? Thanks for reading!

Sombody needs to call a news crew, and get this on the air. CNN or HLN, sombody national and not just some local news channel serving 6,000 in tumbleweed county... I am sure just about any network and/or consumer reporter would be happy to report the changes in the "MajicJack" company that would make it not only less apealing to ever be a new customer of MagicJack, but also to let everyone know that the "Magic" within their company is all washed up...

In fact, if you bought the MagicJack, it would actually be an act of MAGIC that you could call the person you wanted!

Just make sure whoever does it presents themselves well and knows what they are talking about to make a good impact and get us back what we all paid for.

Warrior Minerva - I'm not sure exactly what you mean when you say that your phone stopped working, but whether or not your callers are charged a long distance fee by their phone company is determined ENTIRELY by *their* phone service's plan (and whether or not your number is considered by them to be a number that is "local" or otherwise long distance but "toll-free."

Last week we began experiencing this issue. The wife regularly has been dialing 870-573-xxxx for the first 11 months of MajicJack Plus service without issue, but last week we got the conference call...platform, buy pre-paid minutes recording when trying to dial the same number.

We probably average 900 to 1000 minutes with this number per month. Paying an additional $.02 per minute isn't acceptable. We will be shopping for an alternative VOIP provider ASAP.

Fortunately, I did not buy the 5yr plan, as I was concerned something would not work out. Was just about to renew my contract next month, but now I'm not doing it.

This is happening more and more frequently when MJ users try to call telephone numbers that are assigned to very small telephone companies that serve mostly rural or very small geographical areas (in addition to "call centers" or separate long distance service access numbers)... these companies often charge call termination fees that are too high for MJ, with its ridiculously low $20-$30/year subscriber fee, to be able to pay and still turn a profit. Most other very low-end VOIP providers are starting to do the same thing (charging extra when connecting to such numbers). This is one of the biggest reasons why most VOIP providers that function from the consumer's perspective just like a "regular" phone service cost so much higher than MJ (ex: OOMA, Vonage, etc).

- No. It just seems like that because a) in general, most people that post an online comment about a consumer product do so to post a negative or critical one, and b) this site in particular is intended to be a consumer self-help support group for MagicJack users; consequently most of the posts here are from people experiencing some sort of difficulty and looking for advice on how to proceed with resolving them.

PostPosted: Mon Jan 21, 2013 6:19 pm    Post subject: Cost of pre-paid minutes? Reply with quote

I just got off with Live Chat trying to get a straight answer as to how much these prepaid minutes are. I need to join a conference call that may last upwards of 4 hours a week. It is a local call, originating in my same area code.

Of course, I am with you guys that I've already paid for my Magic Jack so why do I have to pay for minutes, too?

OK so my question is about these minutes. I cannot find a schedule of fees or any info about how much per minute one of these conference calls is gonna run. All I can get out of customer service is to 'Buy the card at $10 to $40 and when you use it it will tell you how much you have left'. That's not good enough. I want to know up front.

Am I the only one that thinks this is bogus?

- You no longer need an "invite" to get Google Voice (it's now called something like "voice through email" in some sections of their website, I believe); it's now available to anyone who wants it and you can sign up for it right through your general Google account. Anyone who's "selling invites" on eBay is just scamming/ripping people off.

PostPosted: Fri Mar 15, 2013 5:45 pm    Post subject: Termination Fees Reply with quote

I was just looking at a few free conference call services. They appeared to be too good to be true. A free conference call capability? What is the catch? Well, I found a pretty good article that seems to explain it. Apparently in the history of telephone companies, the wee big (rich) ones, and small local (poor) ones. So, to help level the playing field, regulation created the provision for "termination fees" which gave the small local telcos the ability to charge a fee to big (rich) telcos for calls "terminating" in the local telco's service area. The "free" conference call services cut a deal with these small telco's whereby they place the hub of the conference call service in the service area of the local telco. The free service generates a ton of call traffic, and the local telco shares the bounty with the conf call service. That's how the "free" service makes its money.

Typically, the whole "termination fee" mechanism was funded by long distance fees collected by the big telcos. But then along comes VOIP services that sidestep the long distance fees. oK, so who is going to pay for this termination fee bonanza when nobody is paying long distance? It looks like what has happened is that the big telcos have said "not me" and started to bill MagicJack for calls terminating in these areas. MagicJack's fee structure was never set to pay these fees obviously! So...MJ is passing the fees back to the individual.

I understand the frustration of MJ users who thought they were getting free calls anywhere. But I can also see why the big telcos don't want to fund the "free conference call" services...and why MJ can't either.

If I understand the situation correctly (please provide any builds) the original sin is the free conference call services which (mis)used a telco regulation loophole to fund their business model, causing an unsustainable drain that had to be fixed. I can't say I blame MJ for it...although it will tick me off too if the identified service areas grows to unintentionally catch one of my family members who happen to live in one of these areas exploited by one of the free services.

Having said that...i'm off to sign up for a free conference call account! Smile

Sorry, ML143, but you don't seem to be bumping into the same surcharge problem as the others in this thread. Your problem is most likely with the Ludlow Telephone Company, and not with MagicJack.

Your observations are probably rooted in two coincidental anomalies.

First, individual phone numbers you are able to reach reliably are probably numbers that have been ported out of Ludlow Tel to another carrier. YMAX, MJ's CLEC (and immediate family member) originates a call on your behalf they use a protocol called Signalling System 7. The first thing SS7 requires is that YMAX consult a database to determine which phone company actually owns that individual phone number you are trying to call. They then route the call to that phone company and tell the terminating phone company what phone number in their realm the call is destined for. No longer do phone companies route amongst themselves by reference to NPA-NXX alone. So, for example, if 228-3344 has been ported from Ludlow Tel to Vonage, the call will connect every time you try because YMAX has no problems completing calls to Vonage.

The other half of your problem is the physical interface into Ludlow Tel. It is quite likely that Ludlow Tel, having only exchange 228 in Ludlow and 226 in Proctorsville, has very limited physical interconnection to the US backbone. Or, they simply are having technical difficulties that prevent reliable termination of calls. The fact that you are receiving "All Circuits Busy" announcements or fast busy signals and not "You must buy minutes to complete this call' announcements indicates that MJ's having rewritten your contract -- after you both have signed it and you have rendered payment -- is not your problem.

By the way, do they still have phone booths with ordinary wall phones in them for free local calling?

I have a simple solution, I just call my own Google Voice number then make the outgoing call though it.

and if that ever stops working, I can call my own cell number, let it go to voice mail and make a outgoing call though that.

Luckally, I live in Texas and I do not see any Texas numbers on the list.

I tried calling a local contractor on his cell phone this week and could not get through. His cell had a 270 area code, I'm in 502. Had never had this problem before and have had Magic Jack Plus for over a year with absolutely no problems at all. I was surprised to receive a recording from Magic Jack about conference calls when I tried returning this contractor's call and was referred to my.magicjack.prepaid.com. I was unable to find that site. Luckily I was able to contact him via my cell phone. I appreciate the feedback on this site. Was very informative. Hopefully, I won't have this problem again or if I only have it once a year or so I can deal with it. Comparing Magic Jack to my local phone company as far as cost I'm way ahead with Magic Jack and can understand that they are still working on different situations. I was recently contacted by them about paying for 911 services. I had absolutely no problem with that knowing that I previously had to pay for 911 services with my local phone company. Cost wise I'm still ahead of the game. Beats paying $45/mo. with my local phone company. The main reason I have Magic Jack is for 911. I wasn't comfortable having just my cell phone.
