1.) Create a google voice account

2.) Enter (register) your magicjack number into your google voice account.

3.) At https://www.google.com/voice/#inbox Enter the Canadian number to call into upper left hand box in the "Place a call" menu.

4.) Your magicjack phone should ring so answer it. You should hear it ringing on the other end to the Canadian number.


Magic Jack should only see the U.S. google voice number and as it is also an incoming call so all should be well. Reply if it works. Thanks.

It has been brought to my attention that you will need a U.S. IP address to create a Google Voice account. Use http://download.cnet.com/hotspot-shield/ or http://openvpn.net/ to possibly get a US ip address. With openvpn.net you may need to disconnect and reconnect until a US IP address pops up.

I recently bought a magic jack. works great, except most of the time I cannot call 1866 and 1800 numbers.

I work for a Canadian company, with significant US operations. I have a Canadian magicjack number, and use the MJ to call conference lines in both the US and Canada, for which the conference organizer gives me a toll free number and a pincode for when they organize conference calls.

Neither the US (mostly Verizon) or Canadian (mostly Bell Canada) 1866 numbers work.

I get a (poorly recorded) message saying "No Routes Found" followed by a short fast busy signal, then it disconnects.

A few times I've got it to connect by eliminating the "1" and just dialing 866, but that hasn't worked lately.

I reported to the MajicJack online support, but I dont have much confidence.

An easy way to call toll free numbers is to insert * in 2nd digit position.
Like when I call Sears Canada 800-267-3277, I dial 8*00-267-3277 and it works! Very Happy

saw this somewhere here but can't find it!

If there was a contest for bad ideas, that one would be a contender for the grand prize.






That won a grand prize, Look at his location!

I never heard back from support after I gave them a sample of 5 or more toll free numbers that didnt work several weeks ago.

I have a Canadian 647 number.

Good news, as of Saturday 1/22/2011, I noticed I'm now able to successfully call US Verizon toll free conference calls, and Bell Canada toll free conference calls - none of these have worked for me from MagicJack in several weeks.

Seems they fixed whatever it was...
