Does anyone have any experience so far? Tech Support runs me around saying it is not compatible and offers no advice on anything else. Sad

I have magicjack on snow leopard and it works wonderfully. It's very clear, easy and I love it. The only thing I have never been able to get to work is caller id on the phone. It works on the software but not the phone.

My experience echo's the above. Works fine, and no problems, but no caller ID on the phone.

I just got my Magic Jack today and it runs with NO problems on my 1.83Ghz. Macbook with Snow leopard 10.6.2. 1 gig Ram through an Airport extreme. Wired phone. Call audio is AWESOME on both sides.

So far I'm happy!

Since upgrading to 10.6, I have been having issues with MagicJack not ringing for incoming calls. I need to restart the software to get it working again.

Outgoing calls work fine, and the incoming works fine for a while after restarting it. Seems after a certain period of idle time or something, the incoming calls stop working.

I was on chat support and did an upgrade (which I probably already had installed as I did an upgrade a few months ago), and then they suggested switching all my DNS servers to the talk4free DNS servers (which I did not like at all, as it routes all your web browsing DNS through those servers).

Anyone else with this problem? Fixes?

I have my Magic Jack running on 10.6.2 without problems for the most part. Every so often it will lose the ability to make and receive calls. A restart of the Magic Jack sw fixes it. Not sure why it happens though, timing seems to be random.

Also i sometimes get the phone ringing but when i pick it up to answer, it will be blank for a good 7-10 secs before i can hear anything which is a great nuisance.

Last but not least, the caller id refuses to work on the phone.

All in all, its minor issues, i still love the magic jack, I look forward to those bugs being fixed one day.

I have found I have to plug in my usb every single time my iMac goes to 'sleep' or restarts.. I also have to log it.

twice I lost my contact list and ALL MY PHOTOS!!

the technicians are a bunch of knuckleheads
I want to uninstall it and reinstall it again. They also expired my account today and I stupidly renewed it until december 2015.

I decided to uninstall MJ. I went into Disk Utility and totall erased it from my system.

I reinstalled it, signed in, and DID NOT USE THE UPGRADE!!

I no longer get the "3 second" beeping or button pushing sounds on the other end.

DO NOT USE THE UPGRADE NO MATTER WHAT TECH SUPPORT TELLS YOU. IT MESSES UP THE WHOLE THING.

I can restart my Mac and I don't have to continuously log in which became, still, another nuisance. If I lose my contact list.. oh well... After my contract is up with MJ..unless there are significant changes, I am done with it. Giving it the benefit of the doubt, it is still in the early stages and now there is more advertising and lots are starting to use it, therefore there will be many 'bugs/kinks/glitches' they will be needing to work out. Maybe even get SMART techs!!!

Get back to the basics.

I just got an iMac with Snow Leopard installed. MagicJack was flaky on my MBP with Tiger but it's horrible with Snow Leopard. It has to be restarted every time the computer goes to sleep and half the time I have to eject it and plug it back in to get a dial tone on the phone. I installed the update today, thinking that might help, but now I keep getting the message saying I have to replug in the MagicJack. I've had it with this stupid thing. I only use MJ for my business phone (small business and I don't get too many calls). I use PhonePower for my home phone, which is much much much better. I've just ordered PhonePower for my business phone, too...I'm trashing MagicJack. PhonePower has a great deal where, if you pay for a full year for $199, you get the 2nd year free. Not as cheap as MJ but I'm willing to pay a little bit more for some reliability. Plus, PhonePower's customer service is awesome.

No problem with magic Jack on latest version of snow leopard here 10.6.4

Caller ID works fine as well and has never had a problem.

I do remember when I first did the upgrade to snow leopard 10.6.0, there were some problems, but then I upgraded the firmware on the magic Jack and all was well. I don't quite remember, but to get the firmware I might have had to contact customer support and have them send me the link as it might not be obviously posted on their website.
