Tips for blocking telemarketers

We recommend that you register your magicJack telephone number(s) on the National Do Not Call Registry (found at www.donotcall.gov). The National Do Not Call Registry allows you to opt out of receiving telemarketing. Most telemarketers will not call your number once it has been on the registry for 31 days.

If you continue to receive telemarketing calls after 31 days have passed, you can file a complaint on the www.donotcall.gov website.

What are the restrictions for long distance calls?

Free US and Canada calling does not include calls to Alaska, the Yukon and Northwest Territories of Canada, or calls to non-8YY calling card, platform, conference, or chat lines, for which additional fees will apply.
