I will stay in China for a while and have to contact back to my family and co-workers. Using traditional phone plans is not a good idea, I know China Telecomm is overcharging international calls as much as they can. I am glad that I can install a broadband at home here very quickly and cheap (RMB 660 like $90 for a whole year), and glad that I brought my MagicJack with me as well.
After the Internet broadband installation, the first thing I did was to connect the MagicJack to my Laptop’s USB connection, and let the Jack automatically run the software installation. Since this MagicJack has been registered and activated by me in USA before, the whole installation process here is very simple. The only holdup is the downloading time due to the bandwidth from the ISP I am using.
After the completion of installing MagicJack software, I heard the dial tone when I plug a normal phone set to the MagicJack. And I dialed a USA phone number, and I heard the phone on the other side ringing. Then I asked my family test from USA, they just dial a local number (I registered for my MagicJack) and the phone connecting to MagicJack ring. I pick it up and then I can talk to them in North America for free from China now. (Of course, I already paid $19 a year for the MagicJack)Tags: MagicJack, VOIP
