[The backstory I will provide is that this was my second attempt to receive customer support for this problem. I had been receiving “help” from ‘Francis’ for about 10 minutes before being cut off. I hope I wasn’t too rude, but at the same time, I dislike being read a script when I am trying to focus on a specific problem.]

You are now chatting with ‘Reena’
Your Issue ID for this chat XXXXXXX
Reena: Hello, how may I help you?
nathan: Hi Reena… I was on a chat with ‘Francis’ and was cut off…
nathan: I’m having problems registering my new magicJack purchase.
Reena: Alright,Let me help you
Reena: May I have the full details of your concern please?
nathan: Right now I’m being told that my email is already registered in your system, but that I don’t have an account.
nathan: So, it won’t let me create a new account, because it says I’m already registered, but it doesn’t seem to have an account for me already.
Reena: Let me guess are you on the registration right?
nathan: You have guessed correctly, hence why I said “I’m having problems registering my new magicJack purchase.”
Reena: Alright,Let me help you on this
Reena: Please plug your magicJack device into a USB port on your computer
nathan: Yes, that’s how this started…
nathan: I’m actually at the stage where I am attempting to register it.
Reena: what are your options there?
nathan: it won’t let me create a new account, because it says I’m already registered, but it doesn’t seem to have an account for me already.
nathan: So I’m not sure what my options are, actually.
Reena: I will be right with you.
nathan: Copy that. Thank you.
(3 minutes pass)
Reena: Pelase do unplug the device now and re-plug it in after 20 sec
nathan: That is not the problem.
nathan: The problem is magicJack both says I am and am not in the system.
Reena: what do you mean?
nathan: Plugging and unplugging the device will not help that.
Reena: Just unplug it..
(I roll my eyes and do as I’m told)
nathan: It is rebooting now.
nathan: I unplugged it, and counted to 20.
nathan: And the exact same thing is happening. This is not an “Unplug it and count to 20 issue,” as I explained to you a few minutes ago.
Reena: Is the magicJack your dial pad visible on your screen right now?
Reena: can you see the word click here to register?
nathan: I have already clicked that. For the third time: it is telling me that my email is already on file, yet also telling me I have to create a new account.
nathan: So I cannot create a new account, yet I have not registered it yet, so I do not have an account yet.
Reena: Please do use a new e-mail address to continue registratriomn
nathan: This is the email I wish to use.
nathan: As I have not created an account using it, it should be available.
Reena: Since you already try to use that e-mail and try to register that device you can’t now longer use that e-mail on taht device
nathan: Actually, this is the first time I have tried to register using this email.
(8 minutes go by)
nathan: OK, new problem.
nathan: I figured the registration on my own…
(I clicked “Forgot password” and it said, “Do you wish to receive an Activation Code?” and sent me a code to activate the account it said I had, but hadn’t created)
nathan: It has been registered, and I am now testing it by calling, and it is not ringing.
nathan: Apparently I can make outgoing calls.
nathan: But nothing seems to be coming in.
Reena: May I have your number please?
Reena: One moment please…
(10 minutes pass)
nathan: If I call the number, it rings from my cell phone, but when I pick up my home phone, which the magicJack is plugged in to, I hear a dial tone. This dial tone is sounding at the same time that my cell phone tells me the number is ringing.
Reena: What you are experiencing right now is normal.Because it will take 10 business days for the number to be completely ported…
nathan: Got it, thank you.
nathan: Have a nice afternoon. Thank you for your help today.
Reena: May I have a little favor before we end this chat? It will mean so much to me.
Reena: Please take *5 seconds survey for me.
Reena: Thank you for stopping by to chat, I hope I did a good job at addressing your concerns. Please take a second to answer a one question survey about the service I provided. Please click the word “close” button on the top right of this screen and the survey will appear.
Reena: Thank you so much!
Reena: Have a great day!
Reena: Have a blessed day.
(I didn’t take the survey. No need to shit on someone’s day and get them in trouble with a not-so-great job)
