Magicjack works like Vonage and cable (sm)
the only cost is $39.99 (device, first time only) for the entire year, no monthly fee.  Second year is $19.99 for the entire year.  Voice mail, call forwarding, etc.  It's a real steal.  So far, my sound clarity is very good.  I'm on my 30-day guaranteed trial now, so I'm still in the testing phase, but I do not use a C-phone. 
whatever works for you, that's great, and what works for me is great too
works great for me. nm
great when it works
We live in the midwest and with wind, rain, etc., the picture would die. One night we were under a tornado warning and watching the Weather Channel and it just went fuzzy.
Yes and yes it works great! nm
Well if it works for you that's great!
I've never tried it myself, but might just out of curiosity.  : )
MetaboLife works great for me! nm
I use Shorthand. It works great in there. sm
The Scribe platform is easy to use once you are used to it. My lines have doubled in the past two months. I use Shorthand for EVERYTHING.

Go to www.pcShorthand.com. There is a trial version.
Works great for smoothies too! nm
it works great for a lot of people, but
be aware that as with most medications it starts to wear off, so if it works for you, I would say go for it and don't dilly dally around with it, because one day it will not work for you, at least that is what happened to me years ago.
you have to really, really want to quit..then it works great.

I have a Belkin and it works great.
My Linksys works great!!!
I just switched to Linksys about six months ago and it works wonderfully.
Voange works great for me! nm
Same here Linksys also. Works great..sm
and have never had any problems with it. I use it for a laptop and have a hard wired desktop pc. My daughter also runs off the Linksys and has had no problems.
Works great! Better than Vonage. SM
I found that with Vonage there was a lag when I would rewind or fast forward in a dictation.  Drove me batty.  Switched to Mediacom phone and it works great.  No lag, clear as a bell.
I should add it works great with the fax machine too!
With Vonage I could never send or receive faxes.  I kept getting "poor line quality" error messages on my fax machine. 
Laptop works great for me
I've been using a laptop now for over a year for full time MT.  I have a Sony Vaio with plenty memory and great processor.  I attach my mouse, keyboard and foot pedal and I'm good to go. I traveled over the summer and was able to work from anywhere with internet access. A great thing! 
Excel works great too, has a template too.
dictationwarehouse.com sells that --I have one works great - nm
I have the same exact setup - works great! nm
oops, meant to say it really works great for me.
I use CS and ST, works great. The CS that I use is actual Word -sm
I have heard that Chartscript net, which is the newer version, is different - more like a box that you type in instead of actual Word. I have worked for 2 places using CS now, and it implements the actual Word program. As long as it's not Chartscript net, you should be okay. When working, we're told to open our own version of Word first before we even log into CS because it will save anything there if the report you are working on is lost somehow. When I type in CS, which looks just like my Word, ST is up and running right in CS, just like when typing in my own Word program. No problems with it at all. I know what you mean.....I would haaate to work without ST too. Hope it works out for you!
I use ShortHand with my ExText. Works great! nm
Vonage! Works great with my Cphone. nm
She's right! The Mary Kay lip care is the ONLY MK stuff i use, works GREAT. nm
I have it - it works great and updates daily, unlike
Norton and/or McAfee, BOTH of which allowed viruses to infect my computer. I won't spend any more of my hard-earned dollars on either. If you register with Avast, you can have their service free for 13 months. It runs in the background and checks literally everything, including net, email and any attachments that come with emails.
Shorthand works great with DQS and is half the price
I put my left leg on top of the computer tower, works great
I usually burn a nice incense--works great! - nm
MP Count is free and works great! Just Google! nm
Nair for upper lip/face works great
I got it to work with Express Scribe! Works great!
Express scribe is FREE and works great!
Thank You for all the great suggestions - plan to try them to see what works the best. Really appre
I use Webroot Spy Sweeper, works great. I don't leave it on though and run it once a week - sm
as I have eliminated my problem program that was causing me trouble ( Network Essentials) which is  a tracking software that tracks what websites you go to, etc.  I was running it daily for about a month and every day it would pop up......finally it does not download anymore.  I have a firewall too, guess I could set it up to reject it IF if knew where it was coming from.  But no major problems since, just Adware junk now and then. Good luck with it and just run your program frequently to get rid of it.....
Love my Kirby G5 -- got it used for $500 - the thing is a tank and works great!- nm
I bought a refurbished eMachine for DD in college, works great. nm

I use regular thin winter gloves and cut the fingertips off. Works great! nm
Got it on Monday, hooked it up, works great!  I will be sending back Vonage now. My state was in there but the number it gave me did not work well so I chose a state not as heavily populated and it is clear as a bell.  Definitely works well for me. 

For anybody who has MagicJack, do you know if it is possible to use this in conjunction with another service such as Vonage?  There is no local area code available with MagicJack in my state, so for anybody calling me even in the same town, it would long distance for them.  I am just wondering if it is possible to have Vonage for incoming calls and then MagicJack for outgoing calls.  Thank you!





I don't know if mine was defective or not, but when I plugged it in and tried to use my phone, all I got was horrible static.  Two friends of mine in NY have no problem with it.  One also has Vonage.  I got Vonage when it was new, and that, too, was disastraous.

Now there's another thing called Peanutjack.com.  If anyone has feedback, I'd love to know.  We need all tne help we can get!


I've also heard that a lot of people with MagicJack had trouble with it and it just stop working.

magicJack - something that may help you decide - sm

I just purchased magicJack.  I like it so far.  One thing that I didn't know that I wish I had is that there is no local number available in my area code.  I had to choose one from a neighboring state.  Therefore, any incoming calls will be long distance for those calling me if they do not have an unlimited long distance plan.  The link below will let you find out what area codes are availble.  Many are pending and are supposed to be available very soon.  Other than this, I really like it.


MagicJack Question


I just got MagicJack and have a DAC transcribe station.  Everytime you depress the foot pedal when listening to a dictation a "1" will appearing in the MagicJack window as if it is trying to input another number to dial.  The dictation eventually cuts out after enough numbers appear to dial a phone number.  Has anyone had this problem or might known the solution? My foot pedal is plugged into the transcribe station.  Can I use a USB foot pedal and link to the dictation through the MagicJack window on your computer screen? 

Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.
