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 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.

How can this reduce my home phone bill?

Hi, I currently use DSL (AT&T) and need a landline for the DSL to work. How will using a majic jack reduce my home phone bill? Currently I pay about $40 per month, with no long distance plan.
Also how can I use this majic jack with my laptop for international travel? Thanks...PC

I have had 3 magicJacks hooked up successfully in my house. However, if you connect them to the phone wall jacks, you can only connect 1 per wired line, my house is wired for 2 lines, so I had 2 connected to the 2 wired lines. The third was just connected to 1 phone. Please note that, because of software limitations (as far as I can determine), only 1 magicJack can be connected to 1 computer. I had to connect the 3 magicJacks to 3 separate PCs.

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.

MagicJack will not send you a bill. The software you install on your computer will remind you to renew your service. You can renew your annual subscription at magicjack.com. If you do not renew your subscription then your service will stop. You can renew your subscription at any time, but if you let your subscription lapse then you may lose your phone number.

MagiJack should have no effect ....IF. The most important thing to consider is band width. If you use dialup, you'll hate the thing cause you wasted your money. The higher your band width is from your ISP, the better your MagicJack will perform. And your ISP will never know you have it unless you live on the phone and they decide to "listen in". Exceptions are Sprint and Cricket Wi-Fi connections. If they catch you using it, they'll shut you down in a heartbeat because it's big time competition for them. A lot of ISPs offer VOIP and charge you out the nose for it...a big rip.
