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

answer 1
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.

answer 2
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 need a broadband internet connection for MJ to work (if you can actually get the thing to work.) Get the Nettalk Duo - it works much better.

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).

when you are installing magicjack it will walk you through everything what new phone number you want or if you want to keep the same number. It will ask you if you want a renewal plan this mean it will renew automatic in one year, we signed on for 5 years we've had magicjack over 2 years we love it.

After you buy it and install it, magicjack will ask you if you would like to buy more service. They give you a deal if you get it for 5 years or you pay it $19.99 a year. You do it through them online. http://www.magicjack.com/6/index.asp

Your problem might not be the phone, it might be the internet connection. I have used a 5$ cheap phone and it works great. Right now i have a 20$ cordless phone to it and it works good too. You probably need a faster internet conection.
