Have you tried it? Were there some problems? Is there something special about majickjack that means it is likely to be problematic?

What is? Presumably Majickjack is a USB device but not a common one so it would help to put us in the picture.

Ah, so the issue is about USB devices in general, not Majickjack in particular.

Where? In the VirtualBox configuration window on the host?

Which version of VirtualBox are you using? The fully Open Source one does not have USB support.
