Is there a solution for this or are the new dongles hopeless?


Since I only own an older dongle, I am unable to address this issue.

First you need to download and install the Skype software plugin "SkyjackPlugin" from http://www.pcphonesoft.com.

To place Skype calls just dial * before the number you want to call. Speed dial numbers are available for dialing other Skype users. Regular magicJack calls are placed as normal. For incoming calls, just answer the phone when it rings.

Yes, this is another option to use magicJack with Skype. The cost of the software is $12.95. Soon they will release a software option to use magicJack with X-Lite/SIP.

I tried this with Gizmo5 but can't get it to work.

1. Incoming: When I call Gizmo from my cell, the phone (connected to magicjack dongle) doesn't ring.

2. Outgoing: When I pick up the phone, I head dial tone so I tried to make outgoing call. But nothing happens. I can see the numbers are typed in Gizmo app as punch the numbers on the phone but that's it.

Any help will be appreciated.

Release 1.01 of the Skype plugin for magicJack is now available for download at http://www.pcphonesoft.com .

It includes out of band DTMF support for touch tone menu use (i.e. FreeConferenceCalls.com, ATMs, Phone Cards, etc).

I have followed the steps mentioned in the first post, but am running into issues.

I am able to call into my skype number and will ring my phone, but after that call, skype dies, and something tries to open up a window to cuphone.com. I am guessing it is the IP Phone Center.

Is anyone else having this issue?

IP Phone Center 8.30.3
Skype: 4.1.0.179

Thanks,

revoohc

Thanks, VoipDude, the IP Phone Center works well on my windows 7 x64 installation.

The SkyJack plugin works well too, but just wish you had to press * to use the magicjack side, rather than the skype side of the plugin

The two ports used by MajicJack 5060 & 5070 UDP are blocked by internet provider. Do you think by using skype which uses different ports I can get back on ?

Yes - you have a much better chance using Skype. If you look at some of the advanced options in the Skype dialer you can manually change the ports used if necessary.

Now i am no computer guy. I fix computers and thats about it. I purchased a VOIP151 corded usb phone for skype. I also have the magic jack. Now i set my windows 7 laptop to ask me to run anything. With the newest version of skype installed I simply plugged in my magic jack and clicked deny to run the software. Then my skype popped up and said it found a new audio device and i clicked allow and now i can use my skype with magic jack. the issue is it only works if i start the call from the software then pick up the phone. I am going to downloAD THE software provided in this site. Thank you!
