Magic Jack as "a wireless client with a network adapter in a single device which allows a telephone to connect to a network access point for the purpose of establishing Voice over IP." So in that sense, Magic Jack is similar to other Internet Telephony services like Vonage or Skype, which allow you to make phone calls over the Internet.
The unique thing about Magic Jack is that it plugs directly into your computer. In a nutshell, you hook up your existing telephone to one end of the device and the other into your USB port. MagicJack works with Windows XP/Vista and Intel-based Mac computers, you must have a high speed connection, such as DSL, cable or fiber. Your phone works the same for dialing out and receiving calls, no special access codes or prefixes are needed.
You need to turn on your computer.
