    I have been a customer of MagicJack for a number years, during those years I have generally been satisfied with the MJ product an as you can see from my billing history I have upgraded from the MJ regular devise to MJ devisePLUS. The MJ Chat system and the telephone 844-866-42-42 could use some improvements Firstly, the Chat needs some people additional sensitive training because many of MJ costumers are senior and require specific slow explanations to answers to their problems/questions. Secondly, the MJ telephone 844-866-4242 is always out-of- order and shoud be looked at! It has been my experience and again today ( 01/19/2016) that the Chat system could use improvement because whenever I had questions/problems I always had to request a supervisor to have them resolved,today Nastasha was able to assist me in setting my voice mail RINGS , she was knowledgeable and professional. As it is well known that time is money, but without customers one need not worry about time. Should someone on the senior management team wish to contact me see below.
