Here's my info...

Any suggestions, warnings or hints before I pull the trigger? Thank you!

Greetings! I have been using my MJ successfully since 2009. I have been traveling all over the world, earning my Communications degree on-line while staying in contact with everyone in USA with my awesome MJ. I used a 2008 Mac Book Pro through South America and just bought a new mac on Feb 2011, 2.66 GHz dual Intel Core i7, 4 GB 1067 MHz DDR3 RAM. Sometimes there were issues with the internet strength in Bolivia, and the calls were choppy. WARNING: trying to pay credit card bills over their automatic phone system with the MJ using wifi is tricky. Sometimes the system does not recognize the buttons when you press them. SKYPE works well with this, and now, SKYPE is free for calling 800 numbers Razz
I have received and made calls in Canada, USA, Bolivia, Columbia, Peru, Chile, Argentina, England, Austria, Turkey, Armenia, and the Republic of Georgia.

So, other than the call quality, the one thing that bothered me was the ridiculous shortcut that pops up on my desktop. to prevent this, follow these steps.. they worked for me.

1. insert MJ in USB and use as normal.
2. drag the shortcut to the trash, then clear the trash.
3. right-click on the MJ icon in the dock, and select OPTIONS.
4. check KEEP IN DOCK, and uncheck the others.
5. to close, right-click on the icon in the dock, and select QUIT, then remove your MJ.
6. re-insert your MJ, and click on the MJ icon in the dock. The two small icons and splash screen may appear for maybe one or two seconds, but disappear when the main dial-pad appears.. And no more shortcut.

Leaving the MJ in the dock appeals much more than a shortcut on my desktop. Hope this helps! Have fun with your MJ!

That's It!
