Here's How… MagicJack Login (Easy – Peasy)
If the magicJack login procedure is a mystery to you, you won't be able to add funds for international calls, extend your magicJack subscription, control your voicemail, or set other features. MagicJack tries to make the process simple, but if you're having difficulties, have a look at the following.
The first step is to go to your login page. The top field asks you for either the email address used to register your magicJack, or for your magicJack phone number. In addition, it asks you for your password, as shown to the left.
Lost Your Password?
If you don't remember your password, click on the “Forgot Password?” link in red at the bottom of the login form. MagicJack will send your password to the email they have on record for your account. The magicJack login process is that simple!
Note that if you purchased a used magicJack, you need to get their password and email address; without them your magicJack login efforts will fail. Once inside, you'll be able to add your email address to theirs to ensure you get email from magicJack (special promotions, password reminders, etc). It's probably a good idea to do so as soon as you install magicJack on your computer; more on that in an upcoming post.
If you purchased a used magicJack Plus, you'll need to plug the unit into the USB port of a computer to login and add your email to the account information already on file for the account.
If you've made it this far – congratulations! You're on your way to becoming your own phone company, and saving hundreds of dollars each year!
MagicJack's Long List of Up-Sells
Once you've logged into your account, magicJack will offer you the opportunity to spend more money (!!) by purchasing additional magicJacks or magicJack Plus dongles. Each comes with a free US phone number and a one year subscription, but magicJack offers you the chance to purchase a different US phone number ($10 – one time fee), change your number to a US vanity number ($10 one time fee, plus a recurring $10 annual fee), or change your phone number to a Canadian number ($10 one time fee, plus a recurring $10 annual fee). In addition, you can extend your subscription by 5 years for $99.75 (effectively, $19.95 per year or $1.66 per month), or add single years to your subscription at $29.95 per additional year ($2.50 per month). Note that magicJack sets your account up to automatically extend itself, using the credit card or debit card you furnish when you purchase or register your dongle.
I'll delve more on these optional purchases in the future, and go through each option you can tweak through your magicJack login pages. Meanwhile, make a few calls – feel the power! You may soon be comfortable enough to ditch your land line altogether!
