Spam SMS: Unlimited Calls to US and Canada

Posted on February 16, 2010  in Personal Experiences

I got another Spam SMS this week:

Call USA / Canada UNLIMITED for only $20 a year! Buy your MAGICJACK! endorsed by govt officials & 100% Legal. Call Anthony (02) 9xx-6823 or 0917xxx2257.

sender +639065700511

This is a first time I’ve heard of the product MAGICJACK, but searching for it in the internet, top search results point to a good Voice over IP (VoIP) device that looks very promising.

But sorry Mr +639065700511. For me the text message is an SMS Spam, since I did not subscribe to it and yet you spammers keep on sending it to me.

For the readers, Sorry guys I do not know if the product is legitimate or not.

But in my opinion the words they used in the sms message are a sign of poorly thought of marketing campaign. Why? Just look at the 2 phrases
“endorsed by govt officials”
“100% Legal”

Not a good combo 🙂

Better luck next spam!

Update 02.19.2010
I got a note from my friend Ding that MagicJack is legitimate product and he recommends using it. Raven too recommends it to my family/relatives in Canada. So I guess I need to update this post with this new info.

  1. I have magicjack as my home phone since I leave my computer on 24/7 anyway. In case I turn it off, the voicemail will go directly to my email. It’s $20 a year vs $10 a month for a regular landline phone. I also sent one to my mom in Manila and she would use it to call me or any of her friends in the US.

    I agree that the SMS is spam and not well thought of, but MJ is legit and I highly recommend it.

    1. @Ding,
      Thanks for the info! Sayang parang patalo kase yung sms ng marketer nila. Maui knows magicjack and she recommends it too. I’ll update my post.
