MagicJack™ Pricing vs. Vonage Pricing

There are a whole slew of online MagicJack reviews that deal with Magic Jack cost comparisons of the Magic Jack service with other phone services like Vonage. We thought we’d cut through the confusion for you with a quick and easy rundown of the numbers.

Magic Jack:

Magicjack costs $39.95 plus shipping and handling. You get a free year of domestic-only calling to the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Additional years cost $19.95. Again though, note that this does not include international calling. Magic jack international calls can only be made when the person you are calling also has the MagicJack device attached to their computer as well. That means they must buy one first, or you have to buy one and ship it to them. What a bottleneck! Additionally Magic Jack prices for international calling are not listed on their site, so it’s not clear what those rates will run you. Is making the real cost of their VoIP service the “magic” part of MagicJack? If so, we can’t wait for the honor.
