Free Home Phone Service Using Google Voice and a MagicJack Phone Adapter
Consumers are now able to set up free home phone service using the free calling services from Google Voice and a magicJack phone adapter with the new downloadable "GVJack" App just released by PCPhoneSoft.com.
Google Voice continues to offer their users free phone numbers, long distance calling, texting and voice mail in addition to other advanced built in features including the ability to simultaneously ring a user's mobile phone on incoming calls. Using optimistic customer retention rates along with the publically quoted 8 million magicJacks sold, the number of expired magicJack units alone that can be reused with the calling services from Google Voice by installing the "GVJack" App should already be well in excess of 1 million units.
The "GVJack" App is designed to be used with a physical phone and its keypad to provide a fully featured landline style calling experience. All users need to do to start making phone calls is to download and install the "GVJack" App and then plug a magicJack into a USB port on a computer and sign in using any Gmail e-mail address and password.
Popular features provided by the "GVJack" App include 7 digit local area dialing, caller id name and number delivery, call waiting, do not disturb, teen/priority call ringing, anonymous call screening, call number screening and voice mail message waiting. Users can also use the same phone with online voice and video chat services such as those available from Google+, Skype and Facebook.
Computer assisted calling is also available. When surfing online, users are able to click on any phone number found on a given webpage to place a call. Dialing features aside, the "GVJack" App can also be used as an advanced desktop client in situations where a physical phone is not practical to use.
The one time "GVJack" App purchase costs significantly less than a standard 1 year magicJack subscription renewal. The full version of the "GVJack" App is free to download and try for up to 7 days from PCPhoneSoft.com prior to making a purchase decision.
