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.

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).

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.

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.
