Okay I am going to start working at home for the company Alpine Access. I need to have a phone line dedicated to this job. I was wondering if a phone jack like magicjack would work for this. I am going to be answering calls. Would this product work or is there a better product? Or should I just get another landline. The phone can not be VOIP as they are not set up for that. Can anyone help me please!

I don't understand the comment about not being able to use VoIP. If you're at home, what does that have to do with the company's capabilities? If you can't use VoIP, you can't use MagicJack either.

Since you're at home, I'd suggest www.nettalk.com, they currently have a lifetime phone contract for $99.95, and it's an Ethernet connected adapter that doesn't require a connection. However, it is VoIP, as are virtually all the other Internet connected phone options like Vonage, etc.

I currently have the NetTalk adapter for my daughter here, and I use two lines from ViaTalk for business communications.

It's a mystery why they preclude folks like Vonage and the like, the cable company's phone is just VoIP anyway!

My guess is for reliability. The company is outsourcing call center functions, so employees need to have a very reliable telephone connection.

I've used VoIP for years, it's been very reliable. I've had Vonage for several years, and now I use ViaTalk. Both compare favorably with standard telephone lines. Truthfully, my daughter had more issues with Comcast Digital Voice than I've had with any VoIP service.
