Contact the provider of your Medical Alert system. My personal opinion is stick with a land line for your Medical Alert system.

No, you do not need to have a Majicjack in either country for it to work.

All long distance calls within the USA and Canada are free, for all other international calls you must pay. The rates are low, please visit the Majicjack website for further details and rates.

You can make calls to any phone on the planet just like your current phone.

Magic Jack offers free calls in Canada and US. Long distance charges apply to other countries. See http://www.magicjack.com/international/ for fees.

If you ship a Magic Jack to your family and friends in Mexico who have high speed internet, they would have a local US number and you can call them as if they were a local call. They could call you too.

Magic Jack doesn't know where it is located on the planet. Just that it has access to high speed internet.

Yes, you can make calls to Mexico for a low per minute cost. And no, the person in Mexico doesn't need one too.

There are plenty of programs (like Yahoo Messenger) that allow free computer to computer calls to/from anywhere in the world.

There is an additional fee for international calling. But, no the party you are calling here in the US, in Mexico, in Tibet or on the moon just needs a live phone, they don't need to have Magic Jack.

yes, the easiest way is to purchase or, If you have a wireless phone system with a "base", usually there is a main console with 2-3 and even 4 wireless phones that come with this type of system. You simply plug the "Base console unit" into the magicjack, that all. All the telephones that came with the system and that are linked to that base (same frequency) will work.

Probably. Magic Jack does not work with your phone jack in the wall.

If you have a recent cordless phone system where only the base has a phone jack and the headsets only have a battery charger, then you can. Simply connect the base to your computer and you'll be up and running in no time.

You can buy a new cordless system at your local Walmart

Yes, one can use 3 or 4 phones. Simplest way is by using 3 or 4 Handsets Cordless Phone Unit in which case you do not have to bother about phone wall jacks availability in each room. I am using a 3 Handsets Cordless phone 5.8 GHz Vtech in all 3 levels of my Home and it works very nice. If you prefer to use individual phones, you may refer FAQ on Magic Jack website in which it explains the procedure about how to connect number of telephone units?

Theoretically, yes. You'll have to link them using splitters and run line from room to room. It may be a bit of a hassle, but it is very doable.

NO, you do not need the land line. Magicjack does not use it.

however what you do need is internet service at your home, Magicjack connects via the internet.

answer 2
No you don't. You just need a computer and a high speed internet connection.

You plug the Magic Jack to your computer, you plug your phone jack to the Magic Jack and you're up and running in no time.

If you want multiple phones in your house, buy a cordless system where only the base has a phone jack connection and the additional handsets only have a battery charger. You can find them at your local Walmart

I have a base and 5 additional headsets in our house and 3 computers connected to the internet. Everything works just fine.

You can receive calls from anywhere. I am not sure if you can get collect calls though, I doubt it. All you pay for is the initial set up and purchase (it is like a subscription and the equipment, which is very small).

Absolutely, you must plug the "base" wireless telephone console into the magicjack, that's all. Now all the other telephones that are on the same frequency as the "base" will work. (the original telephones that came with the "base" console).

Verizon specifically bans all VOIP (magic jack / skype etc) calls over a smartphone or wireless broadband connection. See your TOS.

It should work with any broadband connection, including wireless. However, if the wireless signal is weak, or picks up interference, it will affect the call. You might also experience a delay if the wireless signal has to go through several repeaters.

Yes, you can use an answering machine. MagicJack comes with free voice mail. The MagicJack voice mail cannot be turned off. There is a way around this.

IF your Internet from your phone company is "DSL" and it requires you to have a phone line through them, then yes you must either keep them and use magicjack or find a new provider with magicjack. You will not be able to just drop the phone company unless they offer the dsl without the use of a land line. Hope this helps.
