We don't use landlines for our home and business phones. We use Magic Jacks. lisaviolet designs uses a Magic Jack connected to the computer, the other two are Magic Jack Plus, that run from the router and a electric connection. The adapters for the MJ+s, because they get so warm/hot, die on a fairly regular basis. MJ (the company) does not sell these adapters. You get one replacement and that's it.
I found that the adapter for my Kindle works. I found these on eBay a few years ago and bought five. We've used those. Last month, I bought some adapters on eBay that said they work with iPad, iPhone, Kindle, and various other products, one of which is the MJ+. They were about a dollar each and came in quantities of ten. Free shipping. I bit.
Horrible. They do NOT work with the MJ+, there is a horrendous buzzing noise on the phone. I contacted the seller, he said to mail them back. I was going to until I realized I'd be out the shipping and the cost of a mailer. Why bother, right?
So, I bought adapters from a different seller. Same problem. She refunded my entire payment and said to just keep the adapters. Nice.
Then I bought official Kindle adapters from a seller from Pennsylvania. They were over twice the cost of the adapters that didn't work, but we need these. No phone, no business.
Then last week I scored that iPad mini in that Fukubukuro box. I can use those other adapters now. I contacted the seller who had refunded my money and told her that I would be sending her payment. And I did.
She was confused and I explained the situation to her and told her that since I could use them now, it was only right that I pay for them.
She's sending me a case for my iPad. No charge. Because I was so honest.
I told you she was nice.
