I have a magicJack adapter. The old version. Bought in 2008. It is 6 years old.
It is not magicJack Go, or magicJack Plus. It is traditional magicJack. Work with computer.
Last month the phone jack is broken. The plastic part cracked and RJ11 phone connector can not stay in the jack properly. Tapes help.
Then the question is to get a replacement of it. I searched the support page of magicJack web site. It said $40 will be charged for cost.
Anyway, I am thinking it is reasonable for a device. The old one I got is $40 about 6 years ago.
But, I did not find the place to make an replacement order. So I started an online chat with the support.
Support staff told me that I can get a new magicJack Plus with $5.39 for shipping and handling. I am so surprised. Yes I have magicJack since 2008. I refilled my account for 10 years.
I am very happy with this deal. So I confirmed my credit card information on file. The order is made on Aug 18. And I got the new device on Aug. 21. Perfectly.
The package is simple. The guide is in the front, which show me how to transfer my existing phone number or magicJack account to the new device.
New adapter is magicJack Plus.
This one doesn’t need computer. After I setup it on the computer. I just connect it with USB power adapter, LAN connector, and phone connector.
Conclusion: Get a replacement magicJack Plus for free.

I used Voipstunt as my long distance phone service provider almost two years. It gave good quality phone connection.
Now I change to poivY. A new voip provider name, but actually same company as voipstunt.
The most important reason is that China main land is the free call country in poivY.
All setting is similar to voipstunt. Let me describe how to use it.
1) Sign up the account.
2) Buy credit about US$15 to top up the account.
3) Call free in 90 Freedays to free countries or area.
Including Canada, Chian, USA, UK, etc. For full list please click here.
4) Max 300 minutes per week of free calls.
5) After 90 days, the normal rate apply.
Say, China USD0.027/min, USA USD0.02/min.
The Setting of SIP device shown as below:
SIP port : 5060
Registrar : sip.poivy.com
Proxy server : sip.poivy.com
Outbound proxy server : leave empty
Account name : your PoivY username
Password : your PoivY password
Display name/number : your PoivY username or voipnumber
Stunserver (option) : stun.poivy.com
You can still download the softphone to use through your desktop.

17 years ago, Charles Newman and his brother, Allan, noticed a tendency of Americans to use cell phones for brief periods and then discard them when an upgrade became available. This trend contributed to the accumulation of tons of solid waste, and what was interesting was the majority of these used phones being trashed were still operable. The Newmans realized this could be the path to a new industry that could be profitable and protect the environment simultaneously. As a result, the entrepreneurial brothers started ReCellular, Inc. as a means to restore, reuse, and conscientiously recycle junked cell phones.
ReCellular, which is located in Dexter, Michigan, has established itself as the largest recycler and retailer of refurbished phones and accessories on the planet. The company teamed up with the Cellular Telecommunications & Internet Association’s Wireless Foundation to sponsor the first Donate a Phone recycling event for a charitable cause. Over the years, they have partnered with wireless industry giants including Verizon, Motorola, Sprint, and Best Buy.
ReCellular’s dedication to a less polluted environment has earned them national and regional recognition. Every phone and accessory that is no longer functional gets recycled. As a result, ReCellular oversees the recycling of thousands of tons of electronic waste annually. Having donated or sold tens of millions of salvaged cell phones to a customer base spanning more than 40 nations, ReCellular has created an international web devoted to finding solutions that are socially, economically, and environmentally conscious in the realm of cellular technology.
