This might be yet another way to keep in touch with relatives or friends who are anywhere in the world. 


I just downloaded the Magic Jack Android app HERE on google play and put in my Magic Jack number by signing into my MJ account and now I can make calls from my android cell phone and the phone number that comes up on the receiving persons caller id is my Magic Jack number. I believe you will need a gmail email account to do that and I believe it can be done even without having a Magic Jack but there might be a cost for the phone number. 


Works like a charm on any wifi, so when out and about at a coffee shop, at home on my wifi or at a friends house, I can receive and make calls to the US or Canada free (included in the yearly cost to own a Magic Jack).

Just want to mention that if you have an Android Phone, you most likely have a gmail account ;) (You need a gmail account to get ANY apps... well unless you root the device or sideload, but I mean normal people ;) )

Medical Exams – A caller explained that the civil surgeon who completed the medical exam used the wrong form and then wanted to charge an indigent refugee to reprocess the paperwork on the correct form. What recourse does an applicant have if this occurs?

USCIS Response: Customers should notify the Director of their local office when they have a complaint about a civil surgeon.
