You can read my post toward the end of this page. I am leaving MJ as they have prevented me from getting some calls and I made them aware of it. They were supposed to resolve the problem but never did. When I renewed last year, they charge me an additional $9.95 to keep my ported number that they never told me when I signed up. Now they want $30 to port out. I hope you guys are right because I am going to put in for a port to a new provider and not pay MJ either. I have had it with these money sucking liars. http://www.phoneservicesupport.com/magicjack-allows-you-to-port-out-number-to-a-new-provider-t7608-30.html

Ohhhhh....I gotcha. It was the "the intention of the FCC to consider port out fees illegal", but they just don't "think" it's illegal. Explain to me that difference. You should be a politician with the double-speak.

And MagicJack doesn't consider themselves a telecom company either, so what difference does that make? And although Google feels that way, they certainly backed off blocking whole exchanges when the FCC called them on the carpet on it. Something MagicJack continues to do, apparently at will.

If the FCC considered port-out fees to be illegal, or intended them to be illegal, it would take them 30 seconds to clarify any confusion with another regulation and put a stop to a $3, $30 or $1,000 port-out fee.


I know this is late to the game but seems to me from my telco days that the original owner of the number (the telco who issues it) holds the rights to recover said number if it's ever released into the wild. Otherwise, Magic Crack doesn't OWN the number and would have to release it back to the orig owner of that number. When I got MJ, I ported my number from ComCast, now, I'm about to port it back but MJ is asking for 30 bucks to do so. I already pay them 10 for keeping it every year but I've never paid any service (sunrocket, AT&T, Sprint, Comcast) to port my numbers. Legal or not, thanks for cell phones, I will just let my number play itself out and they can keep it.

And.... since I'm paid up till 2017, I think that pretty much covers my "contract". They can keep my money for that and call it even.

Your failure to pay the $30 fee will have ZERO effect on your porting action. Just ignore the naked attempt at extortion.
