If I choose to switch to Magic Jack from Vonage, can Magic Jack issue me a new phone number? I don't want to to retain my old number.

Yes. You get to choose from a list the area code, exchange and number. If there is one you like and it is available click it and it is yours. You do this during the registration process when you first plug in your MJ into a USB port...
You can even choose a number in a different state if you wish....

Good luck

P.S. This question is best suited in the Technical Support section, not really a Lounge question...

Please double check the exchange number before you pick it. There are a few who chose an area code and expected the number to be local, only to find out that it's long distance for incoming callers.

That's not usually a problem, but there might be a few folks out there that still pay for long distance.

Oh, it is still an issue for very many folks. You would be surprised.
BTW, in some rural areas you do not have that many options- no broadband, spotty and expensive cellular service etc.
