Customer Question
I had Magic jack...

I had Magic jack years ago. I'm living in Israel and I now need a USA number that I can use to receive text messages here in Israel. Is that doable?

Technician's Assistant: What's the make and model of your computer? And how long have you been using magicJack?

I haven't used Magic jack in a very long while. I have an ASUS lap top I don't see the model number anywhere

Technician's Assistant: What's the model and Operating System (OS) of your Asus?

Where would I find it

Technician's Assistant: When did you purchase your Asus? What troubleshooting have you tried?

I bought it about 2 years ago. I don't have any trouble I want to create a new account with Magic Jack that will give me a USA number that will receive texts in Israel preferably to my cell

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
