If you make a lot of calls from your home or business, you know how quickly your phone bill can add up.
Now, there is a way to make local and long distance calls without getting a monthly bill. Claudia Shea shows you how to cash in.
Whoever coined the phrase "talk is cheap" may finally be right.
The makers of the little device called magicJACK promises to magically make your phone bills disappear. And Ned Fleming is willing to give it a shot. "I call all over the U.S. for business, so the promise of free calls within the U.S. and Canada is very tempting."
All you have to do is plug magicJACK into the USB port of your computer. Then, connect any corded, cordless or portable phone to magicJACK.
Next, fill in the registration information that pops up on your computer screen, get a phone number, and you are ready to make calls like you normally do.
The magicJACK attachment costs $40, and that includes your first year of local and long distance calls. Then, it's $20 a year after that, and that's all you pay!
And magicJACK also includes free features like call waiting, call forwarding and voicemail.
It's technology that will save you money and keep monthly bills away.
MagicJACK requires a broadband Internet connection.
