You may have heard about the little magicJack gadget that people plug in at their homes to make free and cost-effective calls. If you have one of those, then you have a magicJack account which you've signed up for on the web. Thus incorporating this account into the new FREE Calls with magicJack app on your iPhone is like having another phone line, (rather a neat idea). If you don't have an account already, you can sign up for one in the app (the 2nd of 3 choices when first opening it). You will get a 10-digit code that your friends will use after dialing magicJack in order to call you. However, I just went the quickest route, and signed up for the 3rd option which was to make free calls only, as I want my friends to be able to easily call me.

So just how can this new app help you? Well, cell phone plans can vary quite a bit. Many people have plans with unlimited minutes, while others have anywhere from 700 to 3,000 minutes allotted to their monthly quota. Additionally, cell carriers are constantly changing their plans so many customers are often having to shuffle providers or their phone usage.

FREE Calls with magicJack makes it possible to have a carrier plan that is not unlimited (and, therefore, cheaper) as you can use this service to call the U.S. and Canada for FREE while never using any of your minutes. It does not require any voice plan and works best over WiFi or 4G (though 3G is just as good). And yes, this app is actually free also! FREE Calls with magicJack incorporates your iPhone's contacts so that making calls is as easy as ever.

FREE Calls with magicJack provides excellent voice and call quality, and also has a simple and clear user interface. When you open the app, you'll see buttons at the bottom of the display designating Recent, Contacts, Account, Keypad and Voicemail. At the top, are 2 buttons for magicJack and iPhone. The former gives you contacts which you may have previously set up with magicJack while the latter shows your native iPhone contacts display. Just tap the + button to add a new contact.

This service offers free outgoing calls on your iPhone, but you can get a subscription for free incoming and outgoing calls including call waiting, voicemail, directory assistance and caller ID. The web site listed below under Developer link actually states that a Free Trial including the optional magicJack equipment is available as of today. At any rate, use this app to make your calls when you don't want to use up your monthly minutes! Certainly can't hurt when you are on a limited plan!
