It’s magic, Jack

It’s been a couple of weeks since we strolled into our local Best Buy and plunked down $65 plus tax for magicJack Plus.
I finally got around to installing it this afternoon and the registration cost us another $25 and change.
The whole idea was to stop paying our cable/internet provider about $30 a month for their iffy telephone service. When I called them to let them know we were taking our phone business elsewhere, I learned there is a $25 service charge for disconnecting us.
So it will be a few months before we’re back in the black with our new arrangement.
Our home phone number will remain the same but it will be 5-10 business days before our old number can be ported over to the magicJack system. That means you’ll have to call us on our cell phones if you want to talk to us between now and maybe Aug. 6.
