Most of us have already heard of magicJack which helps us skimp on our phone bill, and now the company behind it is planning to go one further, with the introduction of magicTalk, a software that aims to eliminate costs for calling landline and cell phones in the US and Canada, with no time limits on said calls. The software is slated to be released next week for Windows and Mac users, with versions for iOS, BlackBerry, and Android devices to arrive somewhere in September or October. Users of the software will receive a phone number that’s associated with it, and will even be able to move their existing phone number to the service if they’re willing to part with some money. The company will be able to make its profit by charging other phone companies for calls placed to magicTalk and magicJack numbers, and also charge users who dial numbers outside of the US and Canada. With VoIP becoming increasingly popular, will we all be getting free phone calls and text messages in the future?
