Does magicJack allow an upgrade to the Plus version?  


The company will now let you upgrade and has reduced the subscription price.

This started with a $35 email offer.

If you purchased a 5 year plan on your standard magicJack, you must call to see if these can be transferred to a new Plus account.

You will lose your free first year that comes with the new Plus devices if you upgrade.

You can assign your original (computer based) magicJack phone number to a new MJ Plus and use both devices. This strategy helps use up the years of service on the original device.

Point 1: When you visit through any of their pages, you will see only offers for Plus…

Point 2: Plus gives the ability to run the service without a computer.


Point 3: Go to their homepage to see what the setup looks like. It's similar to the standard unit with an ethernet connector next to the phone jack.

Point 4: It also comes with an AC adapter to get power through the USB connector.

Point 5: The ethernet connector goes to your router to complete the internet connection and VOIP.

Point 6: You will be paying $49.95 for the device and getting 6 months of service. After 6 months, you will need to purchase additional years of service.

Point 7: That promise of $19.95 per year comes with a 5 year Plus subscription for $99.75 (see bottom of image below)…

When you log in to your MagicJack Plus account, you will be able to purchase other services such as international calling at 2 cents per minute…

To view your standard Magic Jack account:

Step 1: Close your browser to cancel out of the Plus free trial. Open a browser and go to

Step 2: Go to Customer Care/Live Agent page and click the blue Member Features button on the lower left side of the page.

Step 3: You're now at the login page where you enter your magicJack phone number and password. See 1 year only discussion.

Step 5: Ignore the welcome screen where you will not see offers for Plus.

Step 6: Click the My Subscriptions or My Account tab to see if you can upgrade (each device is a unique account).
