I have two phones at home; actually I have 3 plus the cellphone. And those were placed in our bedroom, the first one, the white one is the magic jack where my husband can call me, we can save a lot using that phone line. So if your husband resides abroad, this one is highly recommended that is if you don’t like to bill big time whenever you call him or he calls you. The second one, the black one is our local phone; I have that for my DSL and when I would call my friends here. But recently, my husband calls me on the black phone, because my cell phone does not receive his calls. I am not sure, it just doesn’t ring when I am inside the house, and so for him to at least wake me up through his call, he is using now the black one. The magic jack is off during morning so he got no options but to call me on my landline, which we found out, he sounds so clear and there’s no cut out when he calls me on that.
