To access magicJack Plus service while traveling, you will need to install it on the laptop that you are traveling with, or PC that is with you. Once your computer has the Softphone magicJack application running, you can receive and make VoIP calls using a headset, built-in laptop speakers and microphone, or a separate phone.
