The new 2014 MagicJack
I may have mentioned this a long time ago, but I finally did it. I now have MagicJack. Then, after I hooked it up, but before I had a chance to cancel my home phone from AT&T, I got a bill for $99. I called and told them to cancel my phone service. They begged me for two hours to let them make everything right and give me deals.
We discussed how that bill was wrong, and that I probably owed about $7. The agent told me not to pay it until I got a final bill. Today, I received a check for $20.16. I read and reread the paper it was attached to. "Refund of credit on final bill." That was puzzling. I thought surely they meant I owed $20.16.
For the first time since 1954, I no longer have Bell South or some other Bell or AT&T. It feels strange. My parents got the phone line in 1954. When I was married Bell Something was what we used. Well, there was nothing else.
I did not tell you how this all started. No one believes what AT&T did. That is another story, a long story.
MagicJack can be taken when a person travels, even to Europe and all calls with be local to US calls, not long distance charges.
Anyway, I went from a $23 bill + all they add to make it nearer $33/month bill to a $3/ bill. That is a savings of $30/month!
$30x12=$360 a year I will save. Sweet!
Have you broken up with AT&T for a cheaper alternative? Do you have MagicJack? Are you happy with it? Any problems?
