Today MagicJack announced what it claims is a carrier agnostic femto cell that will provide unlimited wireless calling for just $20 per year. MagicJack says that GSM-based cell phones can connect to the MagicJack Femto cell, which plugs into a computer. The call then transits the internet and MagicJack's voice service to the final endpoint. The idea is to improve in-home coverage for cell phone users and provide unlimited calling minutes. international phone calls will incur charges.

I read an article that said the FCC wasn't even aware of this product before the CES and they "refused comment" 🙂

I'd get this in a heartbeat !

I'm tired of waiting for the 3G microcell to launch Nationally. Plus i'd hope it lets me allow anyone within range use it. I wouldn't care of my neighhbor used some bandwidth. For the price it'd be worth it !
i wonder if this will work with CDMA and iDEN also?

you still have to be in range of your pc.
if they made an ethernet-based magicjack, now that would be cool and save a lot of energy. A small ooma type device?

And with porting and getting a new number, well, get a google voice number. one number 4 life!

I've got invitations too, if anyo...
