Does Magic Jack work overseas?

does magic jack work overseasMagic Jack, a piece of software that allows a user to make calls from a computer is a great way for someone to make phone calls to all of the United States, Canada, and parts of Europe. If you are thinking about purchasing a Magic Jack, or if you already have one, you may be wondering, “Does Magic Jack work overseas?”

The short answer is, yes and what you are going to find out is that it is going to be no different than using it at your home. In order to use Magic Jack outside of the US, you will need a high-speed internet connection, the Magic Jack software installed on your computer and, of course, you will need a phone connected to the Magic Jack port plugged into your computer in order to make the phone calls.

Now, keep in mind that you can make calls no matter where you are, but if you are looking to make calls to foreign countries, additional rates are going to apply. These rates are going to start anywhere from $0.01 per minute, depending on the country that you want to call.

Although it may cost more to use your Magic Jack to call numbers in the foreign country where you currently reside, you can save a lot of money when placing and receiving calls with contacts in the United States and Canada. This is great if you want to call your aunt in Cape May, or if your Edison answering service needs to patch a call to you while you are away.

However, if you want to purchase a Magic Jack program and you live overseas, Magic Jack will require that you ship the product to a USA/Canada address first, and then ship it from there. Perhaps you can have a friend or relative back home help you with this, or purchase one before leaving the country.

If you’re asking, “Does Magic Jack work overseas?,” then you should know that no matter where you are across the globe, you are going to be able to make phone calls as long as you’re connected to the Internet with your Magic Jack software running.
