I use my Magic Jack Plus for my home phone in the United States and I carry it with me when I travel. If you use Magic Jack Plus as your home phone in the United States, you can call anywhere in the United States and Canada for free. 911 Emergency is also available. When I travel I carry the adapter with me. It's small enough to fit in your pocket. When I reach my destination I attach it to my laptop and I can make calls back to the United States. You can also attach it to a hotel telephone. My friends and family can call my telephone number and it rings even when I am not in the United States. Magic Jack Plus service also includes free voicemail, call waiting, caller ID, directory assistance and free telephone number. You can choose to keep your telephone number from your previous carrier or you can choose a telephone number from anywhere in the United States. When family calls your number, they are not charged even if you are not in the United States.

You may think that this is somewhat like Vonage since you need internet. I have tried Vonage and it seems to be a lot clearer service with Magic Jack Plus. Also, I was paying over $30.00 a month to have Vonage and I could not carry it with me. Magic Jack Plus is much cheaper. You can also use Magic Jack Plus with an Apple or Android device. You can use it with a cordless telephone.
Do you own property in a foreign country and want your renters or yourself to be able to call back to the United States? This is also a great rental feature to have for your tenants. Offering free phone calls to the United States is a bonus. We have rented condominiums in particular because we knew we would not lose contact or business while we were on vacation. If we missed a phone call, the voicemail was sent to our email address. We can then open the email and play the message and return the phone call at no charge.
