I've used MagicJack for years and loved having a portable home phone for backup to my cell.
I now have Xfinity Comcast which has absolutely horrible customer service. The reps don't speak fluent English, it's like communicating with 2 year olds, the techs don't show or communicate that they never scheduled the service and the warehouse background noise is so irritating.
I was simply trying to find out if MagicJack will work on their system before I purchase a new MagicJack service plan for $40/yr. (I had with another service and it worked fine, but at one time it did not work with a particular Internet provider - that is why I was making certain). It was like talking to an alien on another planet. I finally hung up and Googled, only to find here that they now require you to purchase an additional line. So that's what the rep was trying to say to me: I had told her NO - I don't need a new service - I just plug MagicJack into my computer/internet. Well, apparently Xfinity figured out a way to get extra income by blocking this feature. Good thing I found this discussion before I blew $40 on MagicJack service. I miss not having the service and I now have an unusable portable phone set that I paid well for. And I'm stuck with Xfinity, as it is only internet available in my area.

bob164 -- We wouldn't block the Magic Jack, if you have internet you will be able to use the Magic Jack.
