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.

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).

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 get a wireless phone with 2-5 units and a base unit. Place the base unit near the computer and the other units where there is a plug for battery charging purposes.

I am using a similar setup with Vonage now. and it works great.

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.
