I just received an email to save on fees if I extend today....but the fees I would be paying today are what I thought I would be paying now, and the email states the regular yearly fee now will be $60, and 5 year fee will be $175. This is news to me unless I've missed something here.

UPDATE: I chatted with MJ support, and they did confirm that there is an official price hike coming, and this is a chance to save some money before it's applied. I activated a 2 year old MJplus I've been holding on to today, and expected to pay the $120 for the 5 year additional, but only paid $99, and got my free year as well on top of my remaining time I still had on the device I switched it out for...things have definitely improved on that front!!

From $ 19 @ year to $ 60 @ year (+ 4% fees for the boss) ... that is a huge increase .... inflation has hardly been 228 % over last 7 years !!!!!!!

that's true, but also service is much better now that MJ has new owners, and really, even at $60 a year, I used to pay that a month for Bell Sad , so still a good deal...it's just that before it was a GREAT deal Wink

We can now switch #'s to any device if you have more than one like I do, they now add any previously bought time to your device upgrades, and I still got the free year included in my time when I just upgraded...a year or so ago that wasn't the case.

really, doesn't this all apply to new owners to for present and THEIR future Wink Like I said, $60 a month or $175 for 5 years, I still don't think you can beat that with any other service, except Google Voice of course, and I'm sure that's about to change, that's why I didn't go that way.

not sure if you email is older, or different, but just sign into the MJ site, go to products and the price is still listed at $120 for 5 years, but there's a blue circles that says SAVE $55, and as I said, I was told these prices will be the new prices once the sale ends.

Actually , there is a bunch of decent options with good and honest providers, people just have to do their homework, but I will not do it for them.
