    Hi,

    I am very new to this. I am trying to get magic jack and reliance/airtel internet connection for my parents( who live in India) so that can make a call to me(I live in US) .

    Could you please tell me what kind of broadband bandwidth will it support? I want them for unlimited plan and which is the better one.

    Any kind of information will be good for me.

    Thank You.

    I would not recommend you to get Reliance Broadband connection as they are not reliable and more over if you get any problem with your broadband connection then it would be hard for your parents to get it working again.

    answer to ur question

    i think airtel or mtnl/bsnl connection will suit you the best. These connections rarely get faulty. I hv been using mtnl for the past 2.5 yrs and encountered a problem only once which they took 20 days to solve.The only problem wid mtnl/bsnl is in the case of it being faulty, the customer care is very inefficient and it may take weeks to fix ur problem...
    based on the tariffs at www.bol.net.in and ::Airtel::Mobile Services Home Phone Broadband Data Cards Internet Wireless Internet Voice Office Solution Blackberry Email Services for You and Your Business plz make a choice between the two..

    mtnl unlimited 256 kbps is for Rs. 799+50(for modem) per month.

    try us2mytown.com

    Hi, the cheapest is to send a magicjack to India if they have an internet connection. Try it at US2Mytown.com, they ship to anywhere in the world.

    I Understand that BSNL and Airtel are the best for a standalone home DSL line to use MagicJack. Has anyone tried the WiMax service or any service using a wireless laptop card/usb device for using the MagicJack?

    go in for airtel unlimited plan as the connection is pretty solid and will never go down. also they have agood CC. BSNL or MTNL , i would not suggest, as if anything goes wrong u are at the mercy of their whims and fancies.

    FOr airtel plan refer to this site

    works finee

    Hey man...i highly suggest you get it....Im from the u.s. and am in dental school in bangalore....I have an airtel 1Mbps Unlimited connection....and my magicJack works amazing!!! I've talked on it for hours and hours...and have not had a problem...can hear everything properly....

    I'd suggest getting a 512 kbps connection....thats what they recommend...if you go lower...it will just make the quality less....

    as far as the advertisements...they are nothing....its not like a pop up or anything....the software it installs is very simple to use....it automatically starts up when you plug in the usb.....the dialer is in a window...when you keep it open...it doesn't even take up 1/4 of the screen...so its nice....after you dial...you can just minimize it...and talk away....there are little advertisements within the window...it says call so and so country for however many cents...its really nothing..not bothersome at all...soo

    this thing is simply amazing...i keep my laptop on all day long...magicJack always plugged in...have been here for 6 months now...not a problem....other than when the damn lights go out...:/

    i give it a 4.9/5........and only 4.9 b/c nothing is perfect in this world...

    hope this helps!

    Hey I'm a little confused. Does this work in Argentina? I mean Argentina is in Central US. Is that also counted in "calling US" I mean, if I pay $42 for the year, would that allow me to call Argentina too? SOMEONE PLEASE lemme know.

    Thanks!!

    Hi,
    There is a new call diverter for landline and cell phone
    through skype free. the name is "Rylwy"
    your incoming calls from your landline and cell phone will follow you for
    free anywhere you travel, to another internet connection,
    and you can make calls from your original landline anywhere
    In the world as if you are near your landline
    :)

    Hi, I just came back from New York where i bought a magic jack to call my friends in the US. I use Airtel. But I find it very difficult to call using the landline. But wen i use the headset its perfect. Have been using it seamlessly using the headset for the past 2 days.
