    I had majicJack for about 2 years. The quality of majicJack has really deteriorated over that time. Many dropped calls and people not being able to get in touch with me. Moreover, their customer support is non-existent, so the issues could not be resolved. A few days ago I got fed up with majicJack and I decided to try Basictalk. Since it has no contract, I had nothing to really lose. And what a difference! The setup was extremely simple, the calls now are crystal clear, has all the features you will ever need (911, voicemail, caller id, call waiting), has an actual customer support and all of that for 10 bucks a month (with taxes and fees it's about $12.70/month for me). And on top of that, no start-up costs whatsoever! Al in all, I highly recommend.

    I didn't know what to expect from Basic Talk after ordering it online and for only $9.88 on sale. The next day, my honey and I picked up the order at the service desk with no long wait...and quickly. After getting home, he installed (just plug it in as instructed) it and within just a few minutes, there was dial tone. So easy to register online and we had the choice of keeping the old number or getting a new one...so we picked a new number and start fresh (so no unwanted calls...if you know what I mean...LOL). It's been about 2 weeks now, and no problems whatsoever! I also cancelled service with Vonage and I won't miss paying the $37.00 monthly payment. The representative was trying hard to keep me as a customer and tried to offer me a good deal for staying. I declined after having attempted to reduce my phone bill previously. Anyone looking to save money on basic phone service, switch over to Basic Talk and you'll have no regrets!

    We've had digital phone service for years, but when the cost kept climbing it made sense to try BasicTalk. The box installed without problems and the phone number was switched within 7 days. The phone number switch was somewhat of a problem as we have a wireless whole house phone and no extra single phones. After install you have a temp phone number with BasicTalk. We were notified when the switch would occur but had to keep checking to see when it was switched. A single phone plugged into either would have made it easier. In retrospect , we should have kept an old phone or bought a cheap phone. We were notified by email after switch was made. I'm making the above comments for someone who has to be available without interruption. We are very happy with the unit and service. It works and today you can't expect much more than that. One added feature of BasicTalk is voice mail which kicks in after 10 rings. We have voice mail on our phone and use it. The good thing about the external mail is if internet service is down the external voice mail works.

    I saw where a minimum of 30kbps is needed for this to work? I have 5 mbps with att.net. Is that fast enough for this to work? Will this work with exede satellite internet service?

    • To use BasicTalk service you need a high-speed Internet connection with a minimum speed of 30kbps, such as cable or DSL, from an Internet Service Provider (ISP). BasicTalk does not supply Internet service. You must arrange for Internet service from an Internet Service Provider (ISP) in your area. Please note, BasicTalk does not recommend or support using satellite or wireless Internet technology.

    • Yes 5 mbps is plenty fast enough I have a 1 mbps connection to the internet and it works flawlessly, please remember that a fast dial-up connection was 54 kbps. In regards to satellite as long as connection is active I believe it should work but you would have to check with the provider.

    • 5 MB/S actually works out to 500 KB/S (actual speed) downstream, and 77 KB/S (actual speed) upstream, so yes, you have plenty of speed. I have the same with AT&T.

    • Pay no attention to this requirement. I have the same ATT service you have - and no problems with this unit.
