In addition to the features listed by ehMax, don't forget that you can forward the line to any number in North America. I have numbers in Park City and Austin which get forwarded to whatever phone line I am currently using (ie. my Canadian cell phone, my cottage or home in Ontario, etc.) Makes having a local number a reasonable expense if needed. I can't remember the last time I actually plugged in the MJ and used it to make or receive a call. Am considering converting my line to the new MJ with ethernet so that I can drop one forwarding jump from my current set-up.

i upgraded to the MJ plus and love it.. I connected it to our phone system Cisco UC 320 VoIP/Sip station through the FXO Port and now have it available on all of our cordless phones and phone stations throughout the house..
The saving are enormous.. When we have house guests I tell them use the line 'labelled - long-distance" - that way they can call free to any place in North America..
get the app for your iPhone and iPad.. So when you are traveling across Canada - I forward my iPhone to the MagicJack app and I receive and make free calls over 3G - it rings on the iPhone, iPad and at home and I can choose where to pick up .. Love it ..

Thanks for the review. My dad loves his MagicJack as well. I wanted to get one but Shaw threw in free phone for a year. Hopefully the number transfer service is available in Canada in about 9 months.

Tried out the Magic Jack iPhone application today. It's pretty amazing actually!

I was on 3G (They recommend 4G or WiFi), and making calls to some numbers in Washington and San Francisco. Calls came in clear with no dropped connections.

So far, really liking this device.

I bought MJ about a year ago for one purpose: to allow calls back to Canada from international locations on our travels. So, I was not interested in a Canadian number. I have one of the generic ones nor was I interested in using it to receive calls.

The quality of the calls is related to the uninterrupted bandwidth of the host network. Sometimes in large hotels or small cafes, the service was not good. I had discovered that they had shipped a defective USB extension cord and once I replaced it with a better cord ( 79˘ ), it worked very well.
