MagicJack PLUS! More and More!

My article on Magic Jack is very popular. Now that MagicJack has introduced the "PLUS" version I thought I would add some more comments. I have installed many of these units and had very little problems. After I installed the units I went to http://my.magicjack.com and used the web site to "port" the existing numbers to the MagicJack PLUS, at a cost of $10 and it took about 10 days, Support ( or what they have for support)  is found at http://www.magicjack.com/techchat/ or http://magicjack.com/customercare.asp

Many web sites commented on the possibility that the PLUS version would allow "hunting" so business users would be able to use these services. Well as of 3-2-2012 the only option for the phone is to forward all the time. So not there yet,

There is a company that allows you to add features to either the MJ or the MJ+ ( a computer must be used )
