Good app, but one feature would make it even better
by Freelancerjourn on 2021/04/14 01:53
Free Tone is a great app. I’m thankful for it. But there’s one feature in particular missing: caller ID. It would be nice if the developer would update the app to allow users to customize a Caller ID. Free Tone is not a well known app. And if you are trying to call someone from it, they are likely not to recognize your number and will think ‘who is this.’ The Free Tone app should have a Caller ID setting where users can customize and input their name so that even if someone you are calling from the Free Tone app doesn’t recognze the number, they recognize the name.
Unreliable In sending and receiving texts
by HuggiesBuyer on 2021/03/30 15:41
Many times I’ve found out from others that they have text me, but I had no clue because I never received them. Forget about sending or receiving group texts. Emojis from my app send as blocks to phones, and I receive question marks instead of emojis from others. That’s really confusing, because I have thought on more than one occasion that the sender was confused but really they were just smiling. Ugh.
it was great at first
by POP RULES!?@&)5282920/$:!. on 2021/03/23 02:52
I had this for a month or two, but then some hacker texted me randomly, and had a bunch of cuss words and porn websites! I deleted it right away!!! I can’t believe this!!! you guys need way more security for that stuff!!!!
Fee
by bjs1986 on 2021/03/15 12:34
So I paid the monthly fee last week just to wake up to a thing saying my free number has expired? Really now I need to change my number and let everyone know how embarrassing!
Big bug problems
by the unhappy 1 on 2021/03/06 05:08
At first getting this app was a good idea the call worked perfectly but after a year they will charge you if you want to keep your same number every year that’s not in the bad part after a while they having a of bugs problems like it will keep ringing after the the is dropped also they will be drop a lot even if you are hooked up too wifi also they have so many commercials are purpose make you pay then to get rid of the commercials not to mention this app will frozen your phone b/c it’s so much going on with the pop ups & ads very frustrating

Please stop asking so frequently.

I really don’t like continually being asked to review a product once every six months is OK but not every 10 minutes. Thank you.
Sometimes it works sometimes it doesn’t
by problems378 on 2021/01/02 21:52
When I pick up a phone call, it goes through but it doesn’t connect. On the other side, the person who is calling is still ringing. It happens 50% of the time. Please fix this issue.
Great app
by MrRealityCheck on 2020/12/17 15:27
One of my faves... honestly... great app that serves its purpose and works with no problems.
Error
by COAST0147 on 2020/12/11 02:56
I have been using it and it’s cool, but recently I have been trying to pay for the premium, but it keeps saying success, but doesn’t deduct my money and the premium if not activated, I have done it several times still the same thing, I really don’t know what else to do
Unnecessary restrictions
by shortknicker on 2020/12/09 17:44
Very bad , why can’t I use what I paid for without limits .. this is very bad and I would never use your app any longer .
Impressive APP

Not free to US or Canada anymore!
by M. Samy on 2020/11/21 18:37
After the new update, I can’t send messages anymore. And seems that it works on credit points now and no way to check that!
My little difficulty
by mzdammy01 on 2020/11/14 20:32
The app is cool but I’m worried my message ain’t going through plus I can’t view how much credit I’ve got left in my account. Did you cancel free text message on the app???
Weird
by Caligirl:** on 2020/10/29 00:02
All of a sudden I can’t send messages. Your support centers has no information on this issue. How do I get this fixed
Doesn’t Work on iOS 14

Save the cash. Doesn’t work on iOS 14. Needs to be fixed/updated.
Misleading Description
by giorgio.86 on 2020/10/20 09:57
You pay for the app claiming it’s a free service, then you have to pay again for a subscription. Totally misleading as a free service.
Group chats please add

Love the app but ads are vey annoying and cost 2 remove
by Melsheik on 2020/10/01 17:37
Love the app but ads are vey annoying and cost 2 remove, I will be quitting using it soon if stays like that, it cost $2 a month to remove plus $1 a month for the App!
One of the better ones!

Its unreliable and if someone texts you you have to go directly into the app or it won’t send the message or even show you sent a message I don’t recommend it at first it’s great but then it dose the stupid crap where it won’t send my message
lots of random calls incoming
by NappaZama on 2020/09/10 22:09
as soon as i installed and payrd for the text messages i received 15 calls, more than a half were of a machine reminding me to stay inside
Too many ads
by candice😎😎 on 2020/09/09 15:20
I only have complains on the fact that I bought a number with over $50 and still have to pay for premium service worth 26$ every month simply to remove ads and text to US and Canada free... I really don’t understand why someone has to go through all that, Why not just have a premium service charge fixed for 3 months, 6months and 1 year respectively.... ??
just no
by Hoppits on 2020/08/27 18:04
i didnt pay 3 dollars to get spammed with ads thank you and good bye
Good experience

Was actually a good app not very expensive and call quantity was good no problem texting and when I was done canceling was easy
Best free app no cap
by Hecho en RD on 2020/08/14 15:36
I love free time because it allows me to get another number for free. They don’t bug you out with ads playing nonstop.
Subscription problem
by riocadiz on 2020/08/12 16:09
I love this app but I am extremely frustrated and I hope someone from the company answers this. I paid for a monthly On my iPhone but it has not transferred over to my iPad. There must be a way for them to sync. Because the one on my iPad is the older version I had that is not the premium and is a different phone number altogether. Please help me
Expected little, got much less
by garbageappsallover on 2020/08/12 06:55
Barely functional, won't send photos most of the time. Paid for this thinking it was the premium ad-free version but that runs out fast and then fully half of your screen is ads. To boot, the 'X's to close the ads are all fake, just clicks on the ad no matter what. The rate they charge for going ad-free after that is exorbitant. Would never buy again.
Idk
by absentculture on 2020/07/30 16:51
The app is not letting me use my premium features. It’s attempting to make me subscribe and when I click it says I’m already subscribed. So I am stuck
I didn’t believe this would work .....🧐
by MissLCinSF on 2020/07/24 15:45
...just $5.00 per month for a “phone” that both texts and calls ?? But it did! 🤸🏼‍♀️ 🎧And it works perfectly with my headphones- I’ve had zero complaints about “not being able to hear me” and I can hear them just as well. 💵It’s cheaper than my $40 a month cell plan, although I have to be connected to WiFi because I don’t have mobile capabilities, but that hasn’t been a real issue, I just schedule my calls to come in when I know I’ll be home each day....which is fine since I work from home anyway..plus there’s tons of WiFi Hotspots everywhere. 📶 And if I need to be mobile - I just pay a small fee for day to be connected via Xfinity or other companies offering instant mobile services. 🤨I usually am skeptical about rave reviews, I check and report the suspicious ones often .....but that’s not the case. 🥳It works - so try it and see. God Bless and Stay Healthy. 🙋🏼‍♀️ Miss LC

Lately app is real glitchy
by ca$hella on 2020/07/14 00:28
Frequently hangs up on calls, issues with sound quality or call connections. Why is this app so HUUUGGGEEE! Right now it surpasses the size of all my other apps including my photos and I’m one of these ppl that stores 1000+ pics on their phone forever! Please fix by reducing size of the app removing some of the ad space. I realize its a “free” app and sponsors=$ but it’s getting to be a bit ridiculous to have an app that takes up this much space to perform only one or two functions...call or text.
Great but 🐛s

Bait & Switch!
by Jj cunning on 2020/05/20 23:54
This app along with the other apps it owns “TEXT ME” for any new registration NOT all incoming texts are viewable! I tried on Apple and an Android phone & BOTH gave initial notice saying “THIS TYPE OF MESSAGE YOU RECEIVED CAN ONLY BE READ BY YOUR NUMBER FOR 1 WEEK OR MORE. 📍 BUY YOUR NUMBER TO BE ABLE TO READ YOU MESSAGE.”- additionally, this was NOT a MMS but a simple SMS TEXT sent as a security measure from an account. ALSO: In reading their “Terms & Conditions” I can see no specific mention of their stating they might indiscriminately doing this.
Poor support
by your support is extremely poor on 2020/05/14 15:41
I recently went to use my app and found all my numbers purchased were gone. I have been trying to work through your support system for over a week with no help whatsoever. I have asked to either have fixed or reimbursed for all of my costs which I even provided receipts for
Charges!

Great application
by YukiChinAihara on 2020/04/29 15:58
This application is useful and handy, but the only problem I have with it is that it declines my called whenever I receive one. The convenience of being able to text and call without having a cellphone is great.

After purchasing the app and a year subscription, and verifying my email, the number could not receive texts. I was notified that my paid-for number was only valid for “from *limited* companies” (their emphasis.) I deleted the account and requested a refund. Then I was charged. I created a new account, and they want to charge me $19.99 again. I want my $22 back! Absolutely DO NOT PURCHASE!

by W0LFPACK18 on 2020/01/24 00:29
For the simple purpose of being able to disguise your actual number by using this instead, it works as needed. HOWEVER, the constant notices to “use it or lose it” messages if you stop using it for a week or two are ridiculous. You’ll get them constantly until you use it again or lose the number. Then you’ll get CONSTANT notifications requesting you pay & go premium. No thanks. Deleted.

TOO MANY ERRORS
by murdamook810 on 2019/12/24 10:53
I’ve been using this app for months. In fact I pay for 2 numbers a monthly and a weekly. You get credits and can’t spend them on anything ! The app almost never opens it’s always blank screen! The calls will show when they’re missed not when it’s ringing. It will show calls but no numbers .. Too many bugs too many errors. And regardless if you use free version or you pay there’s no difference . I can almost never open the app it’s always a blank screen even after redownload
Horrible

Stopped working
by himynameisbrianbaker on 2019/11/17 22:34
I have an iPhone 6s Plus and the application recently stopped working whenever I dial a number. The app will close as the call is attempting to connect. Originally FreeTone was great, then I started having minor issues with calling, more and more ads fill the screen, and now it just stopped working altogether. Don’t waste your time, the way this application is headed is not where you want to be.

This app is crap!!
by Ebbo9000 on 2019/10/04 19:32
This app is not the best. AT ALL! It does not allow calls to go through and it doesn’t even ring. The speaker phone option only works when it wants to and you cannot make calls on it all the time. I’m not sure why but this app needs a reboot and remodel immediately!
Weirdos
by washingtonRedskins101 on 2019/09/20 20:09
THEY RECORD YOUR PHONE CALLS BE CAREFUL. DO NOT SEND BANK INFO OR ANYTHING THAT HOLDS GREAT VALUE THROUGH TEXT OR DURING A PHONE CALL, WAIT UNTIL YOU SEE THEM IN PERSON. THERES NO PRIVACY THEY WATCH EVERYTHING U SEND AND SAY.
App Scams You! Beware
by Josh5221 on 2019/09/19 22:03

Satisfied customer!
by J dog's mom on 2018/10/05 17:55
When friends or family would tell me about an app that gives you a different number, and can be used by wifi, I never believed it. I needed tot all to someone over text, but did not want this person to have my real number, & now a days no one answers blocked calls. I was spectical but tried to use it anyway, and amazingly it works !! This an amazing app, is very convenient ! If I meet someone knew, & don’t want them to know my number just yet, I can use this app! Or people investigating a suspicious husband/or wife, again can use this app!! It’s sneaky. But love it!! It also can be used for people who can’t afford to sign a contract with Verizon, or sprint, I have my own cellphone carrier, so I have service and internet , but I think if I didn’t have money for a monthly cellphone bill, I think all I have to do is be on wifi and that’s it! Very happy I came across this app! Will use for years to come! Suggest it to anyone would needs something like this!!
Does what you think it will, saved me!
by thesourc3 on 2018/05/18 13:19
I was in need of an app quickly that worked almost identical to a normal cell phone, and I was lucky to come across this one! Not only are you able to make unlimited local calls, but you also receive a local phone number which you can use for inbound calls. Furthermore, there is an intuitive text messaging feature which works very well. I haven't tried the app with international, but if it works anywhere near the capacity of how local calls work it would be outstanding. There is a feature to get FREE credits for premium calls just from watching 60 second ad videos which is definitely worth it. Overall I give this app a 5 star bc it actually do s exactly what it says it will. Best of all, it's free! If you're going to complain about the ads, then you should be shot. Nothing in this world is truly free, and you are stupid if you think there is.
I didn’t believe this would work .....🧐
by MissLCinSF on 2020/07/24 15:45
...just $5.00 per month for a “phone” that both texts and calls ?? But it did! 🤸🏼‍♀️ 🎧And it works perfectly with my headphones- I’ve had zero complaints about “not being able to hear me” and I can hear them just as well. 💵It’s cheaper than my $40 a month cell plan, although I have to be connected to WiFi because I don’t have mobile capabilities, but that hasn’t been a real issue, I just schedule my calls to come in when I know I’ll be home each day....which is fine since I work from home anyway..plus there’s tons of WiFi Hotspots everywhere. 📶 And if I need to be mobile - I just pay a small fee for day to be connected via Xfinity or other companies offering instant mobile services. 🤨I usually am skeptical about rave reviews, I check and report the suspicious ones often .....but that’s not the case. 🥳It works - so try it and see. God Bless and Stay Healthy. 🙋🏼‍♀️ Miss LC
Lies false advertisement 5 credits per call/text
by Buffy Dae on 2019/04/04 16:47
I had this app and I was using it. All was just fine. AND THEN! I wasn’t receiving calls and couldn’t text. I noticed before I would type for a text message. It said 5 credits. 5 credits PER TEXT is now needed to send a text and you need at least 1 credit to be able to send and receive calls. I emailed them and they gave me the back and forth run around from telling calls/text are only free in us and Canada. Well I live in and was calling and texting the us. Then they said accounts flagged due to missuse too many calls or text. -ONLY THE APP ADVERTISES FREEE AND UNLIMITED CALLS AND TEXT- so how can that be misused or too many? THEN they said that my account was flagged in error and once it’s flagged they can’t unflag it. So with this account flagging I can no longer use this app even if I delete and use a different email. Unless I pay for credits to call and text at 5 credits per call and text message. Disappointed in the lies and false advertisement and poor customer service. If I could I’d rate no stars for this.
So unreliable
by Influxx Media on 2018/02/16 17:40
UPDATE 2/18 Thanks to the support team I was able to restore my account and credits. When this app works it’s great. Has all the features I need and better than most other similar apps I’ve tried. But as the title says (and remains) it’s been flaky and unreliable for me over the several years I’ve used it (since 2013). If it can work reliably for any length of time I’ll adjust my review again. For now I’ll add a star for the fix. REVIEW 11/17 I’ve had this app (and it’s oddly confusing identical twin app TextMe) for several years now and it’s been a constant headache. Never kept such an unreliable app on my iPad and I would dump it if I had not invested money into credits and had so much history with the phone number. Their development team seem incapable of responding to iOS updates as every time Apple pushes out a major upgrade the app breaks. To compound matters, their support staff are the most dim witted and clueless team on the planet. They can rarely sort problems out, and if they do it takes days of messaging back and forth. Hopeless. If only Skype did SMS. I’ve tried a few other text and call apps and they all seem pretty poor. After trying several some years ago I settled on FreeTone and boy do I regret it. Do yourself a favour and stay well clear of this bag of fail
Could use improvement
by wbatson on 2018/10/18 20:21
I’m SUPER thankful for this app as it is allowing me to make phone calls while I’m without a phone service, BUT after a month of use I have noticed a few odd things. You get notifications for the same text even after you’ve deleted it/read it, and every time I try to delete a message or conversation it is always there when I reopen the app (kind of disturbing that your texts can never be deleted, and frustrating because I’m sick of getting notified for month old messages). I’ve also randomly had phone calls end on me with no apparent reason. But I AM still thankful for this app and will continue to use for free, just hope for improvement especially for paying costumers
App is now crashing
by ohfuchsia on 2018/02/16 22:23
I’ve been using this app for a while now and it’s probably one of the better ones out there to use. I like how I can watch videos for credits since I am using this only to text people outside of the US. The only issues I’m having are recent. The app keeps blacking out or crashing, completely closing. I never had this problem before and it’s kind of irritating to have to open and close it over and over. I also wish there was options for phone numbers available to the Philippines as there isn’t any apps that provide that but I understand that there’s probably a reason for that. Overall I enjoy this app, just wish it didn’t crash all the time.
USED to work. Now terrible. Can’t text. Won’t connect. Ads load and never let me close them.
by StarKit on 2017/12/09 01:45
When I FIRST got this app I loved it. It worked great and the ads didn’t bother me. I’m not sure what happened but suddenly I can’t text anyone (always says “requires 5 credits or SMS to send” and despite HUNDREDS of credits wouldn’t send any of my messages), my calls won’t go though or don’t connect or crash, and whenever I open my app there’s a white loading circle that will not go away even after I restart the app. I’ve had to redownload the app three times. I feel so stuck. The number I got from this app is written on all my college applications and other official documents and I feel like I can’t get a new number now since I’ve already invested so much into it. Wish they would fix the bug. Again: it USED to work just fine. Now it’s terrible.
Works Great
by questionX on 2018/12/15 20:48
So far. Just installed and called several numbers. Works great. Clear and loud. Credits are low priced. Ads are out of the way and not annoying. You can upgrade to remove ads. Works on iPad 12 iOS. Better than other competitors, I have used. It is FREE. Just buy credits, or earn from watching videos or other media. Works over WiFi, no need for Ethernet. You have your own number, you can choose from a short list. If you go premium, it’s 7.99 a month, for unlimited calling. That’s not even 100 dollars a year! Better than Magicjack.
Really works
by Patosaurus15 on 2018/01/19 19:00
So I was in a bit of a jam and needed to make a phone call quick when I found this app. I was heartily surprised to see it really works like a real phone number and you can place calls up to pretty much anywhere. It also starts you off with 10 free credits which I’m really grateful for, after that however you may need to buy more credits which range in price from 100c for like 2 bucks which is dirt cheap I’d say. If for whatever reason your number is cut off and need to place a call then I definitely recommend this.
So far so good
by T.H.E. BIX on 2018/10/01 14:57
Downloaded to use for work as I have gotten tired of missing personal calls due to using the same number for work and personal. Has every feature I have on my cell phone and has allowed me to keep one phone yet differentiate work calls. If I have cell signal this works. I was pleased to discover that it is 100 percent free. Ads are not disruptive and I find the UI to be better than the one that came with the phone number. Great job and thanks for solving my issue!
Has Been A Good App for my Needs
by Hanabel34 on 2018/02/17 21:59
This app on my iPad is the only mobile phone I have, and I love it! It would not be a good substitute for a cell phone for people who use their phones a lot for talking, as there is some delay in hearing the speaker and vice versa (not real bad, but would make a long conversation less pleasant than a regular phone.) However, I don't like talking on the phone and my conversations are short. I use the app mostly for the text feature and urgent calls when I'm on the road. When I have to make a phone call, this app is quite sufficient. On my limited budget as a retiree, it saves me a bundle.
Worst app ever
by jjames B on 2018/08/18 16:37
The interface is horrible. The first time i had a call , the notice came up on my iPad , but NO WAY to answer since the accept this call notice didn't appear . I was using it for text support with another problem and they had to call me 3 times before i could answer it . I had used the TextMe app for awhile but it had so many annoying ads that i began looking for another app . I will just deal with the ads instead of this . Also i did get the most offensive spam i have ever had . A belligerent call from the SPAM IRS and FBI that i hadn't filed tax returns and was being "hunted" etc .. apparently this app doesn't have any "spam police" and gives ur number out freely to anyone . My brief experience with this app .. just download and take ur chances .
Great app!!!!!
by Loveisthebrightest on 2017/09/01 02:28
This app is pretty cool for unlimited talk and text. There are many ads and sometimes you get notifications for the ads which is a bit annoying but it's cool that you can talk for an unlimited amount of time. I stayed on the phone for a complete hour and the service was temporarily unavailable but I called back immediately and the service worked fine so I would say steer clear for that. Overall great app and definitely worth the download.
Good app, but one feature would make it even better
by Freelancerjourn on 2021/04/14 01:53
Free Tone is a great app. I’m thankful for it. But there’s one feature in particular missing: caller ID. It would be nice if the developer would update the app to allow users to customize a Caller ID. Free Tone is not a well known app. And if you are trying to call someone from it, they are likely not to recognize your number and will think ‘who is this.’ The Free Tone app should have a Caller ID setting where users can customize and input their name so that even if someone you are calling from the Free Tone app doesn’t recognze the number, they recognize the name.
Clear calls
by ABB # 1 Fan on 2017/12/02 04:09
I’ve only made two calls so far, both have be just as clear as if it was “a brand name” service! I’ve been able to make a call locally in Middle Georgia, then called my friend in California ... just like any other call! As long as you have access to a WiFi connection you can make calls for an uncanny price compared to brand name companies, only issue is without WiFi no calls, but there is a voicemail!!! Way cool
Big bug problems
by the unhappy 1 on 2021/03/06 05:08
At first getting this app was a good idea the call worked perfectly but after a year they will charge you if you want to keep your same number every year that’s not in the bad part after a while they having a of bugs problems like it will keep ringing after the the is dropped also they will be drop a lot even if you are hooked up too wifi also they have so many commercials are purpose make you pay then to get rid of the commercials not to mention this app will frozen your phone b/c it’s so much going on with the pop ups & ads very frustrating
Unreliable
by JJJSFCD on 2018/04/23 10:41
I have been using this app for years, and instead of improving it, the developer has made it worse. It’s now so bogged down with ads that it doesn’t work properly. It’s only purpose apparently is an ad generator. I no longer receive notifications at all when I receive a text, yet the developer is flawlessly capable to inundate me with ads that somehow make their way through seamlessly. Every time I send a text, an ad is in the way of reading my own text let alone a response from the other person. Then when I try to send another text or close the screen-hogging ad, I inadvertently click on the ad. Very frustrating and flat out unreliable.
Good talking and texting app!!!!
by somona252 on 2018/05/15 17:53
If your looking for an app you don’t have to get credits to use than your in the wrong place. But overall it’s a great app download run a couple of games and delete the games and you got credits that simple. Nothing is really free in life you just gotta put in a lil work. My phone is off for a couple of days and I’m happy to have this app right now really came in handy! Thanx for providing this service!!!
Surprised.
by Dallen6681 on 2017/08/29 12:10
I downloaded this app yesterday because I was out of minutes on my cell phone. I'm amazed at the quality of the sound. I think it's pretty awesome! I've had this app for a couple of weeks and I still feel the same, it's great. I have had conversations up to an hour and it stays clear. I have called other states and it is still great. I have told all my friends about it. I am very grateful for it.
Needs lots of help!!
by nunspi on 2018/10/14 16:58
While using free version, app worked perfectly!! Then with no warning, I was notified my number had expired due to inactivity. I only sent about 20 texts out literally before this. I subscribed, and wasn’t able to keep my number. Now the app barely works. Randomly calls and won’t shut off. It’s impossible to text, without touching my phone it flashes from the login to iTunes Store! It also will just stop sending texts. I’ve emailed support several times with no response!! I would strongly recommend not using this app!! To many issues!! I find it interesting that all of this started as soon as I paid.
How this has more than three stars is beyond me.
by arutcero on 2018/06/07 17:26
I open this app. Ads. I payed for the minutes. Ads. I dial a number. Ads. I hang up. Ads. I go to click on a section. Ads. You get the hang of it. Riddled with ads. Simply giving the developers your money for minutes isn’t enough to get rid of the things. You have to pay for the ad free version on top of the minutes you’ve purchased. Unless you like being bombarded by ads, look elsewhere for a better app. How I payed $20 for the talk time yet still get pop up ads every time I open it is beyond me. Unfortunately I’m locked in until I burn the minutes. Don’t get locked in, look for a better app.
Lately app is real glitchy
by ca$hella on 2020/07/14 00:28
Frequently hangs up on calls, issues with sound quality or call connections. Why is this app so HUUUGGGEEE! Right now it surpasses the size of all my other apps including my photos and I’m one of these ppl that stores 1000+ pics on their phone forever! Please fix by reducing size of the app removing some of the ad space. I realize its a “free” app and sponsors=$ but it’s getting to be a bit ridiculous to have an app that takes up this much space to perform only one or two functions...call or text.
one issue I am having.
by jerimeade123 on 2018/07/29 04:48
So I have been using this app for almost 2 years now, it’s great I love it but recently it has been messing up. I call my boyfriend regular on this when my phone bill isn’t paid, and he gets my text and calls off of this app but I can’t get his text messages or calls? I went to look for a update to see if it was maybe a bug but there was no update. It’s frustrating for me having to call him and text him because he can’t call me or send me a text because I can’t get them.
Pretty good!
by Zanetheman on 2018/04/19 17:54
I have an iPhone 5s and I don’t have an iMessage account and then my friend told me about this and this turned out great I can text my friend across different states and I have my own phone number with no bugs but there are ads often which isn’t much of a problem. So overall this app is great..especially if you don’t have iMessage and need to text OR call friends with no bugs really, at least I didnt find any. Great app for texting and calling!!!👍👍😃
One of the best
by Specialneeds mom on 2018/09/29 02:36
I have this app for my daughter who has special needs. She has it on her iPod and iPad both. The app allows her to call me and me to call her. As well as text for free. Other apps like text free take real money to pay for minutes. This app actually does what it says with nothing hidden. The only down side is the ads but. The ads help the app continue to do what it says it will for free. Highly recommended app.
Great App!
by Ta-boo94 on 2017/12/09 15:48
I've had few app that claimed to have unlimited free calls and text but they never really worked, when I finally found one they decided to have a monthly fee to use their service. I'm glad I finally found another app that it's really free and works perfectly. I just hope the same thing doesn't happen now. I highly recommend this app. A++ (5⭐️)
Good till today
by Unicorn6878 on 2018/08/29 16:31
I’ve been using Free Tone or a very long time it’s been AMAZING don’t get me wrong I love it until today. I got a notification said I had a miss call and the number kept calling so I went in he app to text the person and it said I needed to sign it again all my stuff was gone my number my contacts on the app everything gone. i hope that’s because I haven’t used it in a while I because of my traveling and no WiFi. Or what please help me.
Top free texting/calling app period!!
by DanTheMovieMan702 on 2018/06/29 15:37
I love this app! Been using it since my phone got shut off and I must admit I am impressed! Calls are clear as long as your on a decent WiFi connection. Texts usually go through when sent. Only gripe is that my friend won’t get a text here and there for some reason and it will say it went through yet they never receive it. Other than that you cannot complain since it is basically free!! Thanks
Absolute Garbage
by Wolf_Man_Boy on 2018/10/12 22:20
I just wish that everyone had iPhones so I wouldn’t have to use stupid third-party apps such as this one to text androids. I’ve never had a good third-party texting and calling app for my non-cellular devices and this one is no exception. There’s so many ads! It plays one every time you send a text. No joke. Half the time I call people, I can hear them but they can’t hear me. Also, I get called by at least two telemarketers a day, which I rarely see on my iPhone. And to make is worse, my number randomly changes and the app spontaneously logs me out! I do not recommend unless you plan on paying monthly for premium.
Works poorly
by bamb190024 on 2018/08/04 22:06
This app was ok for the first few days of use but, I experienced countless dropped calls. As well as, lag in dialing out, call quality was extremely poor, and cutting off conversations was a regular thing. Not to mention that you had to renew the subscription every month in order to keep your number? Free how? Also, when previously renewed I was charged twice for this crappy application. Whoever designed this app needs to fix the connectivity issues, used on the fastest most stable WiFi ever and still had dropped/choppy calls at random.
Works great at first but goes downhill
by kayleesh on 2019/06/10 17:15
It worked just fine at first, but now it takes minutes for it to connect no matter how strong or weak my signal is or if it’s on WiFi. Every call has static lately, the person on the opposite end of the phone can barely ever hear me. The ads will pop up in the middle of the dial pad or randomly cover the whole screen while I’m on a call. I don’t want to have to change to a new app and number because I use this as an emergency line for my business. I love the app, but major issues occurring lately, please fix.
Love this app
by Nytetears on 2019/01/15 22:11
I am editing this review. Beyond mad!! I paid for a number so I did not have to text every month to keep it. My payment expired last month. Due to someone hacking my credit card I could not renew right away. My daughter texted me and the jerks at this service gave my number to someone else!!! Not ever a courtesy time for a paying customer. Well they won’t get another cent of my money My daughter is in Canada and I am in the US. She has free Canada texting but could not text me. Thanks to freetone letting me get a Canadian number we can now text. You get some inline ads but they are non obtrusive and easily ignored. Thanks for such a great app
Works fine
by *^..^* on 2019/08/17 13:43
This app has been my primary phone number for the past few years. Mind you, I don’t use the phone a whole lot and I primarily text (though not excessively either). I use it on my iPad and the sound is just fine. Sometimes it’s a bit choppy, depending on connection, but overall it does what it’s supposed to. Ads aren’t too annoying to get past. I’ve also never had to add credits.
Impressed
by Eralda X. on 2018/04/27 23:56
This is the first time I've ever used this kind of an app. It has surpassed all my expectations. The call quality is good, the service is amazing and the app works fast and easy. I would recommend this app to all my friends. I have thoroughly enjoyed it and I am grateful that in today's society we can rely on the technology that is available to us.
??????????
by DJonassaint on 2019/02/02 18:43
So I signed up for this app and it was GREAT...but the glory was short-lived. Apparently I had to pay for my number in order to receive codes that I’d try to get from different websites to secure my accounts, etc. I don’t understand that if everything is free then why was my codes being held hostage on exchange-for-change? (I’m using a free app, ofc i have change lol :-p). I love this app and still do, I just hope that they REALLY make it free the next time around.
It’s good but...
by QueenJazzy5 on 2018/01/26 08:13
This is a good app. I love how it can make calls and text! The little problems I have is sometimes my messages and calls DO NOT pop up in my notification sometimes. I will have to click in the app and refresh it just to see if someone text me. I’ll mis a text from someone hours ago because it never showed up in my notifications. It also happens when people call. It would show up as “miss call” but I will never get the call. PLEASE FIX THIS PROBLEM!
Failing...
by rockstarbarbie1 on 2018/12/20 18:23
Loved the app in the beginning- I got this for my new business. Now it’s failing me!! I am not receiving notifications when I receive texts and phone calls. I’m missing out on business which is aggravating me!! I have to open the app to see if anything has come through and I’m missing a lot of calls/ texts. It just makes ME look flakey when in fact it’s the app!!! But my customers don’t know that... The problem is I can’t take this number anywhere else and it’s printed on my cards and google, etc... this app needs a big makeover and quick! It’s a waste of $4.99
Annoying Ads Force me to Delete
by W0LFPACK18 on 2020/01/24 00:29
For the simple purpose of being able to disguise your actual number by using this instead, it works as needed. HOWEVER, the constant notices to “use it or lose it” messages if you stop using it for a week or two are ridiculous. You’ll get them constantly until you use it again or lose the number. Then you’ll get CONSTANT notifications requesting you pay & go premium. No thanks. Deleted.
Helpful App indeed but serious delays
by Blessable on 2017/11/17 12:55
I’m thankful for this app reason being its free to use as I’m out of minutes on my main line, however there has been serious delays when on a call (I talk and the person on receiving end hears what I said seconds later) and we end up talking over one another. Experienced about 1 or 2 dropped calls also. Other than that this app serves its purpose and allows me to keep in contact with those that matter.
Love it
by fosisticated on 2017/09/14 02:43
It's really good. Works as says and it's UI isn't ugly like a lot of other apps out there. BUT the notifications are ridiculous. I keep getting notifications telling me about calls from US and Canada or how I got 10 free credits even though I paid 3.99 and have a premium membership. It even says "this subscription is active" but these ads are SO annoying and very, very frequent. I might have to go back to TextNow even tho their UI isn't the best. And that's unfortunate because I was so ready to buy 2 numbers and ughhh :(
Great App. =)
by randyet62208 on 2018/09/02 17:54
I was needing an app so that I could use my phone until I had the funds to get it turned back on. Well I came across this one I’m glad I downloaded it. It works wonderful! It lets you choose a local number. The text message feature is great. So far no complaints about it. I would definitely suggest it.
Calls drop!!!!!all the time!!!
by coll9ctor on 2018/04/18 17:50
I can’t make a call seriously!!! The calls drop almost all the time then you have to watch some silly ad that takes 5 sec to go away then the call drops again, then next call and the same process continues. I’ve been using the service fo over 6 months it’s was great at first but now it’s just terrible. Will have to find new ap. I give 2 stars because it used to work good but now there just pumping ads all over causing malfunctions I believe but who knows!!!!
Just like every over app getting greedy for money
by Breezybee4 on 2018/09/06 21:48
Until today I noticed that before I’ve had this app for maybe four years I could easily delete your number and create a new one for free and the reason why I like this app over every other app is because they had literally unlimited minutes which meant that you could go ahead and make calls for however long you want and now they have a where you have to buy new number just got to keep in mind that nothing last forever thinking about jailbreaking😂
Constant iTunes Charge Attempts and Crashes
by iPaul4 on 2019/03/29 19:56
Using free plan initially to evaluate app, every time a message comes in and or I open the app I get an iTunes login request popup. I cancel the request but many users don't force iTunes to confirm each request and if you have touch id enabled there is good chance your finger is on the home button and you'll touch ID login to iTunes before you realize it. The direct correlation of, for me, rare iTunes login to this app is undeniable. App also crashes constantly less than a minute or two of app usage between crashes.
Cool hold
by lgbunb on 2018/01/14 17:52
It's a good app I like it it's better than most easy to use free not many problems at all is it is who complain I cant you should use it excellent app there are plenty of other apps out there no Habron little thing but this one for them fine just convenient for my use and I like it hopefully you do too thank you
Missing calls
by 57U on 2018/04/19 19:24
This app is sort of working, drops calls all the time. I am really frustrated. Plus phone number price has tripled, yet calls are being dropped all the time. I am really disappointed. On further usage, the call drops continue in midstream. The app is buggy if you want to buy a second phone number I am not sure what is white this app but it does not work right. If it drops the calls it does not work, hence the. One star. I really want to like it but it is just unreliable more than not it does not even ring. Just unacceptable.
Stephanie from Ohio
by Stephalishious on 2019/02/10 11:37
My phone service totally was the worse service/customer service Ive ever experienced so I started using my home and work WiFi so I could use the Free Tone app. It’s clear it’s free and I love it! Plus I love that you can upgrade for just a one time low amount and pick between what extra service you might need! 💜 it.
This app does not work
by App is frustating me on 2018/06/10 19:33
This is the glitches I have bumped into with this app. Calls: 1. They ring and then the call hangs up. I dial back and it gives a messaging saying that there is a call in process. When there isn’t. So now I dial a couple more x’s and same message. When the app just catches up to what I actually wanna do and then the call goes thru and I continue my call, maybe about 5 minutes later. Who had to take 5 mins just to get the phone to ring? 2. Sometimes the people can’t hear me on the other end. 3. When I’m hold with, idk the power company, for over 20 mins and the app closes and just drops the call. So I have to call again and wait in line. 4. But before waiting in line again, I had requested a call back and when they actually do call me back, it rang for a micro second and I missed the call. Yea this app is annoying

Good app, but one feature would make it even better
by Freelancerjourn on 2021/04/14 01:53
Free Tone is a great app. I’m thankful for it. But there’s one feature in particular missing: caller ID. It would be nice if the developer would update the app to allow users to customize a Caller ID. Free Tone is not a well known app. And if you are trying to call someone from it, they are likely not to recognize your number and will think ‘who is this.’ The Free Tone app should have a Caller ID setting where users can customize and input their name so that even if someone you are calling from the Free Tone app doesn’t recognze the number, they recognize the name.
Unreliable In sending and receiving texts
by HuggiesBuyer on 2021/03/30 15:41
Many times I’ve found out from others that they have text me, but I had no clue because I never received them. Forget about sending or receiving group texts. Emojis from my app send as blocks to phones, and I receive question marks instead of emojis from others. That’s really confusing, because I have thought on more than one occasion that the sender was confused but really they were just smiling. Ugh.
it was great at first
by POP RULES!?@&)5282920/$:!. on 2021/03/23 02:52
I had this for a month or two, but then some hacker texted me randomly, and had a bunch of cuss words and porn websites! I deleted it right away!!! I can’t believe this!!! you guys need way more security for that stuff!!!!
Fee
by bjs1986 on 2021/03/15 12:34
So I paid the monthly fee last week just to wake up to a thing saying my free number has expired? Really now I need to change my number and let everyone know how embarrassing!
Big bug problems
by the unhappy 1 on 2021/03/06 05:08
At first getting this app was a good idea the call worked perfectly but after a year they will charge you if you want to keep your same number every year that’s not in the bad part after a while they having a of bugs problems like it will keep ringing after the the is dropped also they will be drop a lot even if you are hooked up too wifi also they have so many commercials are purpose make you pay then to get rid of the commercials not to mention this app will frozen your phone b/c it’s so much going on with the pop ups & ads very frustrating

Please stop asking so frequently.
by DTerry6666 on 2021/02/18 14:58
I really don’t like continually being asked to review a product once every six months is OK but not every 10 minutes. Thank you.
Sometimes it works sometimes it doesn’t
by problems378 on 2021/01/02 21:52
When I pick up a phone call, it goes through but it doesn’t connect. On the other side, the person who is calling is still ringing. It happens 50% of the time. Please fix this issue.
Great app
by MrRealityCheck on 2020/12/17 15:27
One of my faves... honestly... great app that serves its purpose and works with no problems.
Error
by COAST0147 on 2020/12/11 02:56
I have been using it and it’s cool, but recently I have been trying to pay for the premium, but it keeps saying success, but doesn’t deduct my money and the premium if not activated, I have done it several times still the same thing, I really don’t know what else to do
Unnecessary restrictions
by shortknicker on 2020/12/09 17:44
Very bad , why can’t I use what I paid for without limits .. this is very bad and I would never use your app any longer .
Impressive APP

Not free to US or Canada anymore!
by M. Samy on 2020/11/21 18:37
After the new update, I can’t send messages anymore. And seems that it works on credit points now and no way to check that!
My little difficulty
by mzdammy01 on 2020/11/14 20:32
The app is cool but I’m worried my message ain’t going through plus I can’t view how much credit I’ve got left in my account. Did you cancel free text message on the app???
Weird
by Caligirl:** on 2020/10/29 00:02
All of a sudden I can’t send messages. Your support centers has no information on this issue. How do I get this fixed
Doesn’t Work on iOS 14

Save the cash. Doesn’t work on iOS 14. Needs to be fixed/updated.
Misleading Description
by giorgio.86 on 2020/10/20 09:57
You pay for the app claiming it’s a free service, then you have to pay again for a subscription. Totally misleading as a free service.
Group chats please add

Love the app but ads are vey annoying and cost 2 remove
by Melsheik on 2020/10/01 17:37
Love the app but ads are vey annoying and cost 2 remove, I will be quitting using it soon if stays like that, it cost $2 a month to remove plus $1 a month for the App!
One of the better ones!

Its unreliable and if someone texts you you have to go directly into the app or it won’t send the message or even show you sent a message I don’t recommend it at first it’s great but then it dose the stupid crap where it won’t send my message
lots of random calls incoming
by NappaZama on 2020/09/10 22:09
as soon as i installed and payrd for the text messages i received 15 calls, more than a half were of a machine reminding me to stay inside
Too many ads
by candice😎😎 on 2020/09/09 15:20
I only have complains on the fact that I bought a number with over $50 and still have to pay for premium service worth 26$ every month simply to remove ads and text to US and Canada free... I really don’t understand why someone has to go through all that, Why not just have a premium service charge fixed for 3 months, 6months and 1 year respectively.... ??
just no
by Hoppits on 2020/08/27 18:04
i didnt pay 3 dollars to get spammed with ads thank you and good bye
Good experience
by Shanesaw01 on 2020/08/22 16:16
Was actually a good app not very expensive and call quantity was good no problem texting and when I was done canceling was easy
Best free app no cap
by Hecho en RD on 2020/08/14 15:36
I love free time because it allows me to get another number for free. They don’t bug you out with ads playing nonstop.
Subscription problem
by riocadiz on 2020/08/12 16:09
I love this app but I am extremely frustrated and I hope someone from the company answers this. I paid for a monthly On my iPhone but it has not transferred over to my iPad. There must be a way for them to sync. Because the one on my iPad is the older version I had that is not the premium and is a different phone number altogether. Please help me
Expected little, got much less
by garbageappsallover on 2020/08/12 06:55
Barely functional, won't send photos most of the time. Paid for this thinking it was the premium ad-free version but that runs out fast and then fully half of your screen is ads. To boot, the 'X's to close the ads are all fake, just clicks on the ad no matter what. The rate they charge for going ad-free after that is exorbitant. Would never buy again.
Idk
by absentculture on 2020/07/30 16:51
The app is not letting me use my premium features. It’s attempting to make me subscribe and when I click it says I’m already subscribed. So I am stuck
I didn’t believe this would work .....🧐
by MissLCinSF on 2020/07/24 15:45
...just $5.00 per month for a “phone” that both texts and calls ?? But it did! 🤸🏼‍♀️ 🎧And it works perfectly with my headphones- I’ve had zero complaints about “not being able to hear me” and I can hear them just as well. 💵It’s cheaper than my $40 a month cell plan, although I have to be connected to WiFi because I don’t have mobile capabilities, but that hasn’t been a real issue, I just schedule my calls to come in when I know I’ll be home each day....which is fine since I work from home anyway..plus there’s tons of WiFi Hotspots everywhere. 📶 And if I need to be mobile - I just pay a small fee for day to be connected via Xfinity or other companies offering instant mobile services. 🤨I usually am skeptical about rave reviews, I check and report the suspicious ones often .....but that’s not the case. 🥳It works - so try it and see. God Bless and Stay Healthy. 🙋🏼‍♀️ Miss LC

Lately app is real glitchy
by ca$hella on 2020/07/14 00:28
Frequently hangs up on calls, issues with sound quality or call connections. Why is this app so HUUUGGGEEE! Right now it surpasses the size of all my other apps including my photos and I’m one of these ppl that stores 1000+ pics on their phone forever! Please fix by reducing size of the app removing some of the ad space. I realize its a “free” app and sponsors=$ but it’s getting to be a bit ridiculous to have an app that takes up this much space to perform only one or two functions...call or text.
Great but 🐛s

Bait & Switch!
by Jj cunning on 2020/05/20 23:54
This app along with the other apps it owns “TEXT ME” for any new registration NOT all incoming texts are viewable! I tried on Apple and an Android phone & BOTH gave initial notice saying “THIS TYPE OF MESSAGE YOU RECEIVED CAN ONLY BE READ BY YOUR NUMBER FOR 1 WEEK OR MORE. 📍 BUY YOUR NUMBER TO BE ABLE TO READ YOU MESSAGE.”- additionally, this was NOT a MMS but a simple SMS TEXT sent as a security measure from an account. ALSO: In reading their “Terms & Conditions” I can see no specific mention of their stating they might indiscriminately doing this.
Poor support
by your support is extremely poor on 2020/05/14 15:41
I recently went to use my app and found all my numbers purchased were gone. I have been trying to work through your support system for over a week with no help whatsoever. I have asked to either have fixed or reimbursed for all of my costs which I even provided receipts for
Charges!

Great application
by YukiChinAihara on 2020/04/29 15:58
This application is useful and handy, but the only problem I have with it is that it declines my called whenever I receive one. The convenience of being able to text and call without having a cellphone is great.

After purchasing the app and a year subscription, and verifying my email, the number could not receive texts. I was notified that my paid-for number was only valid for “from *limited* companies” (their emphasis.) I deleted the account and requested a refund. Then I was charged. I created a new account, and they want to charge me $19.99 again. I want my $22 back! Absolutely DO NOT PURCHASE!

by W0LFPACK18 on 2020/01/24 00:29
For the simple purpose of being able to disguise your actual number by using this instead, it works as needed. HOWEVER, the constant notices to “use it or lose it” messages if you stop using it for a week or two are ridiculous. You’ll get them constantly until you use it again or lose the number. Then you’ll get CONSTANT notifications requesting you pay & go premium. No thanks. Deleted.

TOO MANY ERRORS
by murdamook810 on 2019/12/24 10:53
I’ve been using this app for months. In fact I pay for 2 numbers a monthly and a weekly. You get credits and can’t spend them on anything ! The app almost never opens it’s always blank screen! The calls will show when they’re missed not when it’s ringing. It will show calls but no numbers .. Too many bugs too many errors. And regardless if you use free version or you pay there’s no difference . I can almost never open the app it’s always a blank screen even after redownload
Horrible

Stopped working
by himynameisbrianbaker on 2019/11/17 22:34
I have an iPhone 6s Plus and the application recently stopped working whenever I dial a number. The app will close as the call is attempting to connect. Originally FreeTone was great, then I started having minor issues with calling, more and more ads fill the screen, and now it just stopped working altogether. Don’t waste your time, the way this application is headed is not where you want to be.

Terrible service
by bittttttlilole on 2019/10/11 15:06
Constant interruptions in calls. Constant hangups. Terrible phone service. Terrible. So disappointed in this app. A waste of time it should honestly be no stars. This app needs to be upgraded.

This app is crap!!
by Ebbo9000 on 2019/10/04 19:32
This app is not the best. AT ALL! It does not allow calls to go through and it doesn’t even ring. The speaker phone option only works when it wants to and you cannot make calls on it all the time. I’m not sure why but this app needs a reboot and remodel immediately!
Weirdos
by washingtonRedskins101 on 2019/09/20 20:09
THEY RECORD YOUR PHONE CALLS BE CAREFUL. DO NOT SEND BANK INFO OR ANYTHING THAT HOLDS GREAT VALUE THROUGH TEXT OR DURING A PHONE CALL, WAIT UNTIL YOU SEE THEM IN PERSON. THERES NO PRIVACY THEY WATCH EVERYTHING U SEND AND SAY.
App Scams You! Beware
by Josh5221 on 2019/09/19 22:03

Satisfied customer!
by J dog's mom on 2018/10/05 17:55
When friends or family would tell me about an app that gives you a different number, and can be used by wifi, I never believed it. I needed tot all to someone over text, but did not want this person to have my real number, & now a days no one answers blocked calls. I was spectical but tried to use it anyway, and amazingly it works !! This an amazing app, is very convenient ! If I meet someone knew, & don’t want them to know my number just yet, I can use this app! Or people investigating a suspicious husband/or wife, again can use this app!! It’s sneaky. But love it!! It also can be used for people who can’t afford to sign a contract with Verizon, or sprint, I have my own cellphone carrier, so I have service and internet , but I think if I didn’t have money for a monthly cellphone bill, I think all I have to do is be on wifi and that’s it! Very happy I came across this app! Will use for years to come! Suggest it to anyone would needs something like this!!
Does what you think it will, saved me!
by thesourc3 on 2018/05/18 13:19
I was in need of an app quickly that worked almost identical to a normal cell phone, and I was lucky to come across this one! Not only are you able to make unlimited local calls, but you also receive a local phone number which you can use for inbound calls. Furthermore, there is an intuitive text messaging feature which works very well. I haven't tried the app with international, but if it works anywhere near the capacity of how local calls work it would be outstanding. There is a feature to get FREE credits for premium calls just from watching 60 second ad videos which is definitely worth it. Overall I give this app a 5 star bc it actually do s exactly what it says it will. Best of all, it's free! If you're going to complain about the ads, then you should be shot. Nothing in this world is truly free, and you are stupid if you think there is.
I didn’t believe this would work .....🧐
by MissLCinSF on 2020/07/24 15:45
...just $5.00 per month for a “phone” that both texts and calls ?? But it did! 🤸🏼‍♀️ 🎧And it works perfectly with my headphones- I’ve had zero complaints about “not being able to hear me” and I can hear them just as well. 💵It’s cheaper than my $40 a month cell plan, although I have to be connected to WiFi because I don’t have mobile capabilities, but that hasn’t been a real issue, I just schedule my calls to come in when I know I’ll be home each day....which is fine since I work from home anyway..plus there’s tons of WiFi Hotspots everywhere. 📶 And if I need to be mobile - I just pay a small fee for day to be connected via Xfinity or other companies offering instant mobile services. 🤨I usually am skeptical about rave reviews, I check and report the suspicious ones often .....but that’s not the case. 🥳It works - so try it and see. God Bless and Stay Healthy. 🙋🏼‍♀️ Miss LC
Lies false advertisement 5 credits per call/text
by Buffy Dae on 2019/04/04 16:47
I had this app and I was using it. All was just fine. AND THEN! I wasn’t receiving calls and couldn’t text. I noticed before I would type for a text message. It said 5 credits. 5 credits PER TEXT is now needed to send a text and you need at least 1 credit to be able to send and receive calls. I emailed them and they gave me the back and forth run around from telling calls/text are only free in us and Canada. Well I live in and was calling and texting the us. Then they said accounts flagged due to missuse too many calls or text. -ONLY THE APP ADVERTISES FREEE AND UNLIMITED CALLS AND TEXT- so how can that be misused or too many? THEN they said that my account was flagged in error and once it’s flagged they can’t unflag it. So with this account flagging I can no longer use this app even if I delete and use a different email. Unless I pay for credits to call and text at 5 credits per call and text message. Disappointed in the lies and false advertisement and poor customer service. If I could I’d rate no stars for this.
So unreliable
by Influxx Media on 2018/02/16 17:40
UPDATE 2/18 Thanks to the support team I was able to restore my account and credits. When this app works it’s great. Has all the features I need and better than most other similar apps I’ve tried. But as the title says (and remains) it’s been flaky and unreliable for me over the several years I’ve used it (since 2013). If it can work reliably for any length of time I’ll adjust my review again. For now I’ll add a star for the fix. REVIEW 11/17 I’ve had this app (and it’s oddly confusing identical twin app TextMe) for several years now and it’s been a constant headache. Never kept such an unreliable app on my iPad and I would dump it if I had not invested money into credits and had so much history with the phone number. Their development team seem incapable of responding to iOS updates as every time Apple pushes out a major upgrade the app breaks. To compound matters, their support staff are the most dim witted and clueless team on the planet. They can rarely sort problems out, and if they do it takes days of messaging back and forth. Hopeless. If only Skype did SMS. I’ve tried a few other text and call apps and they all seem pretty poor. After trying several some years ago I settled on FreeTone and boy do I regret it. Do yourself a favour and stay well clear of this bag of fail
Could use improvement
by wbatson on 2018/10/18 20:21
I’m SUPER thankful for this app as it is allowing me to make phone calls while I’m without a phone service, BUT after a month of use I have noticed a few odd things. You get notifications for the same text even after you’ve deleted it/read it, and every time I try to delete a message or conversation it is always there when I reopen the app (kind of disturbing that your texts can never be deleted, and frustrating because I’m sick of getting notified for month old messages). I’ve also randomly had phone calls end on me with no apparent reason. But I AM still thankful for this app and will continue to use for free, just hope for improvement especially for paying costumers
App is now crashing
by ohfuchsia on 2018/02/16 22:23
I’ve been using this app for a while now and it’s probably one of the better ones out there to use. I like how I can watch videos for credits since I am using this only to text people outside of the US. The only issues I’m having are recent. The app keeps blacking out or crashing, completely closing. I never had this problem before and it’s kind of irritating to have to open and close it over and over. I also wish there was options for phone numbers available to the Philippines as there isn’t any apps that provide that but I understand that there’s probably a reason for that. Overall I enjoy this app, just wish it didn’t crash all the time.
USED to work. Now terrible. Can’t text. Won’t connect. Ads load and never let me close them.
by StarKit on 2017/12/09 01:45
When I FIRST got this app I loved it. It worked great and the ads didn’t bother me. I’m not sure what happened but suddenly I can’t text anyone (always says “requires 5 credits or SMS to send” and despite HUNDREDS of credits wouldn’t send any of my messages), my calls won’t go though or don’t connect or crash, and whenever I open my app there’s a white loading circle that will not go away even after I restart the app. I’ve had to redownload the app three times. I feel so stuck. The number I got from this app is written on all my college applications and other official documents and I feel like I can’t get a new number now since I’ve already invested so much into it. Wish they would fix the bug. Again: it USED to work just fine. Now it’s terrible.
Works Great
by questionX on 2018/12/15 20:48
So far. Just installed and called several numbers. Works great. Clear and loud. Credits are low priced. Ads are out of the way and not annoying. You can upgrade to remove ads. Works on iPad 12 iOS. Better than other competitors, I have used. It is FREE. Just buy credits, or earn from watching videos or other media. Works over WiFi, no need for Ethernet. You have your own number, you can choose from a short list. If you go premium, it’s 7.99 a month, for unlimited calling. That’s not even 100 dollars a year! Better than Magicjack.
Really works
by Patosaurus15 on 2018/01/19 19:00
So I was in a bit of a jam and needed to make a phone call quick when I found this app. I was heartily surprised to see it really works like a real phone number and you can place calls up to pretty much anywhere. It also starts you off with 10 free credits which I’m really grateful for, after that however you may need to buy more credits which range in price from 100c for like 2 bucks which is dirt cheap I’d say. If for whatever reason your number is cut off and need to place a call then I definitely recommend this.
So far so good
by T.H.E. BIX on 2018/10/01 14:57
Downloaded to use for work as I have gotten tired of missing personal calls due to using the same number for work and personal. Has every feature I have on my cell phone and has allowed me to keep one phone yet differentiate work calls. If I have cell signal this works. I was pleased to discover that it is 100 percent free. Ads are not disruptive and I find the UI to be better than the one that came with the phone number. Great job and thanks for solving my issue!
Has Been A Good App for my Needs
by Hanabel34 on 2018/02/17 21:59
This app on my iPad is the only mobile phone I have, and I love it! It would not be a good substitute for a cell phone for people who use their phones a lot for talking, as there is some delay in hearing the speaker and vice versa (not real bad, but would make a long conversation less pleasant than a regular phone.) However, I don't like talking on the phone and my conversations are short. I use the app mostly for the text feature and urgent calls when I'm on the road. When I have to make a phone call, this app is quite sufficient. On my limited budget as a retiree, it saves me a bundle.
Worst app ever
by jjames B on 2018/08/18 16:37
The interface is horrible. The first time i had a call , the notice came up on my iPad , but NO WAY to answer since the accept this call notice didn't appear . I was using it for text support with another problem and they had to call me 3 times before i could answer it . I had used the TextMe app for awhile but it had so many annoying ads that i began looking for another app . I will just deal with the ads instead of this . Also i did get the most offensive spam i have ever had . A belligerent call from the SPAM IRS and FBI that i hadn't filed tax returns and was being "hunted" etc .. apparently this app doesn't have any "spam police" and gives ur number out freely to anyone . My brief experience with this app .. just download and take ur chances .
Great app!!!!!
by Loveisthebrightest on 2017/09/01 02:28
This app is pretty cool for unlimited talk and text. There are many ads and sometimes you get notifications for the ads which is a bit annoying but it's cool that you can talk for an unlimited amount of time. I stayed on the phone for a complete hour and the service was temporarily unavailable but I called back immediately and the service worked fine so I would say steer clear for that. Overall great app and definitely worth the download.
Good app, but one feature would make it even better
by Freelancerjourn on 2021/04/14 01:53
Free Tone is a great app. I’m thankful for it. But there’s one feature in particular missing: caller ID. It would be nice if the developer would update the app to allow users to customize a Caller ID. Free Tone is not a well known app. And if you are trying to call someone from it, they are likely not to recognize your number and will think ‘who is this.’ The Free Tone app should have a Caller ID setting where users can customize and input their name so that even if someone you are calling from the Free Tone app doesn’t recognze the number, they recognize the name.
Clear calls
by ABB # 1 Fan on 2017/12/02 04:09
I’ve only made two calls so far, both have be just as clear as if it was “a brand name” service! I’ve been able to make a call locally in Middle Georgia, then called my friend in California ... just like any other call! As long as you have access to a WiFi connection you can make calls for an uncanny price compared to brand name companies, only issue is without WiFi no calls, but there is a voicemail!!! Way cool
Big bug problems
by the unhappy 1 on 2021/03/06 05:08
At first getting this app was a good idea the call worked perfectly but after a year they will charge you if you want to keep your same number every year that’s not in the bad part after a while they having a of bugs problems like it will keep ringing after the the is dropped also they will be drop a lot even if you are hooked up too wifi also they have so many commercials are purpose make you pay then to get rid of the commercials not to mention this app will frozen your phone b/c it’s so much going on with the pop ups & ads very frustrating
Unreliable
by JJJSFCD on 2018/04/23 10:41
I have been using this app for years, and instead of improving it, the developer has made it worse. It’s now so bogged down with ads that it doesn’t work properly. It’s only purpose apparently is an ad generator. I no longer receive notifications at all when I receive a text, yet the developer is flawlessly capable to inundate me with ads that somehow make their way through seamlessly. Every time I send a text, an ad is in the way of reading my own text let alone a response from the other person. Then when I try to send another text or close the screen-hogging ad, I inadvertently click on the ad. Very frustrating and flat out unreliable.
Good talking and texting app!!!!
by somona252 on 2018/05/15 17:53
If your looking for an app you don’t have to get credits to use than your in the wrong place. But overall it’s a great app download run a couple of games and delete the games and you got credits that simple. Nothing is really free in life you just gotta put in a lil work. My phone is off for a couple of days and I’m happy to have this app right now really came in handy! Thanx for providing this service!!!
Surprised.
by Dallen6681 on 2017/08/29 12:10
I downloaded this app yesterday because I was out of minutes on my cell phone. I'm amazed at the quality of the sound. I think it's pretty awesome! I've had this app for a couple of weeks and I still feel the same, it's great. I have had conversations up to an hour and it stays clear. I have called other states and it is still great. I have told all my friends about it. I am very grateful for it.
Needs lots of help!!
by nunspi on 2018/10/14 16:58
While using free version, app worked perfectly!! Then with no warning, I was notified my number had expired due to inactivity. I only sent about 20 texts out literally before this. I subscribed, and wasn’t able to keep my number. Now the app barely works. Randomly calls and won’t shut off. It’s impossible to text, without touching my phone it flashes from the login to iTunes Store! It also will just stop sending texts. I’ve emailed support several times with no response!! I would strongly recommend not using this app!! To many issues!! I find it interesting that all of this started as soon as I paid.
How this has more than three stars is beyond me.
by arutcero on 2018/06/07 17:26
I open this app. Ads. I payed for the minutes. Ads. I dial a number. Ads. I hang up. Ads. I go to click on a section. Ads. You get the hang of it. Riddled with ads. Simply giving the developers your money for minutes isn’t enough to get rid of the things. You have to pay for the ad free version on top of the minutes you’ve purchased. Unless you like being bombarded by ads, look elsewhere for a better app. How I payed $20 for the talk time yet still get pop up ads every time I open it is beyond me. Unfortunately I’m locked in until I burn the minutes. Don’t get locked in, look for a better app.
Lately app is real glitchy
by ca$hella on 2020/07/14 00:28
Frequently hangs up on calls, issues with sound quality or call connections. Why is this app so HUUUGGGEEE! Right now it surpasses the size of all my other apps including my photos and I’m one of these ppl that stores 1000+ pics on their phone forever! Please fix by reducing size of the app removing some of the ad space. I realize its a “free” app and sponsors=$ but it’s getting to be a bit ridiculous to have an app that takes up this much space to perform only one or two functions...call or text.
one issue I am having.
by jerimeade123 on 2018/07/29 04:48
So I have been using this app for almost 2 years now, it’s great I love it but recently it has been messing up. I call my boyfriend regular on this when my phone bill isn’t paid, and he gets my text and calls off of this app but I can’t get his text messages or calls? I went to look for a update to see if it was maybe a bug but there was no update. It’s frustrating for me having to call him and text him because he can’t call me or send me a text because I can’t get them.
Pretty good!
by Zanetheman on 2018/04/19 17:54
I have an iPhone 5s and I don’t have an iMessage account and then my friend told me about this and this turned out great I can text my friend across different states and I have my own phone number with no bugs but there are ads often which isn’t much of a problem. So overall this app is great..especially if you don’t have iMessage and need to text OR call friends with no bugs really, at least I didnt find any. Great app for texting and calling!!!👍👍😃
One of the best
by Specialneeds mom on 2018/09/29 02:36
I have this app for my daughter who has special needs. She has it on her iPod and iPad both. The app allows her to call me and me to call her. As well as text for free. Other apps like text free take real money to pay for minutes. This app actually does what it says with nothing hidden. The only down side is the ads but. The ads help the app continue to do what it says it will for free. Highly recommended app.
Great App!
by Ta-boo94 on 2017/12/09 15:48
I've had few app that claimed to have unlimited free calls and text but they never really worked, when I finally found one they decided to have a monthly fee to use their service. I'm glad I finally found another app that it's really free and works perfectly. I just hope the same thing doesn't happen now. I highly recommend this app. A++ (5⭐️)
Good till today
by Unicorn6878 on 2018/08/29 16:31
I’ve been using Free Tone or a very long time it’s been AMAZING don’t get me wrong I love it until today. I got a notification said I had a miss call and the number kept calling so I went in he app to text the person and it said I needed to sign it again all my stuff was gone my number my contacts on the app everything gone. i hope that’s because I haven’t used it in a while I because of my traveling and no WiFi. Or what please help me.
Top free texting/calling app period!!
by DanTheMovieMan702 on 2018/06/29 15:37
I love this app! Been using it since my phone got shut off and I must admit I am impressed! Calls are clear as long as your on a decent WiFi connection. Texts usually go through when sent. Only gripe is that my friend won’t get a text here and there for some reason and it will say it went through yet they never receive it. Other than that you cannot complain since it is basically free!! Thanks
Absolute Garbage
by Wolf_Man_Boy on 2018/10/12 22:20
I just wish that everyone had iPhones so I wouldn’t have to use stupid third-party apps such as this one to text androids. I’ve never had a good third-party texting and calling app for my non-cellular devices and this one is no exception. There’s so many ads! It plays one every time you send a text. No joke. Half the time I call people, I can hear them but they can’t hear me. Also, I get called by at least two telemarketers a day, which I rarely see on my iPhone. And to make is worse, my number randomly changes and the app spontaneously logs me out! I do not recommend unless you plan on paying monthly for premium.
Works poorly
by bamb190024 on 2018/08/04 22:06
This app was ok for the first few days of use but, I experienced countless dropped calls. As well as, lag in dialing out, call quality was extremely poor, and cutting off conversations was a regular thing. Not to mention that you had to renew the subscription every month in order to keep your number? Free how? Also, when previously renewed I was charged twice for this crappy application. Whoever designed this app needs to fix the connectivity issues, used on the fastest most stable WiFi ever and still had dropped/choppy calls at random.
Works great at first but goes downhill
by kayleesh on 2019/06/10 17:15
It worked just fine at first, but now it takes minutes for it to connect no matter how strong or weak my signal is or if it’s on WiFi. Every call has static lately, the person on the opposite end of the phone can barely ever hear me. The ads will pop up in the middle of the dial pad or randomly cover the whole screen while I’m on a call. I don’t want to have to change to a new app and number because I use this as an emergency line for my business. I love the app, but major issues occurring lately, please fix.
Love this app
by Nytetears on 2019/01/15 22:11
I am editing this review. Beyond mad!! I paid for a number so I did not have to text every month to keep it. My payment expired last month. Due to someone hacking my credit card I could not renew right away. My daughter texted me and the jerks at this service gave my number to someone else!!! Not ever a courtesy time for a paying customer. Well they won’t get another cent of my money My daughter is in Canada and I am in the US. She has free Canada texting but could not text me. Thanks to freetone letting me get a Canadian number we can now text. You get some inline ads but they are non obtrusive and easily ignored. Thanks for such a great app
Works fine
by *^..^* on 2019/08/17 13:43
This app has been my primary phone number for the past few years. Mind you, I don’t use the phone a whole lot and I primarily text (though not excessively either). I use it on my iPad and the sound is just fine. Sometimes it’s a bit choppy, depending on connection, but overall it does what it’s supposed to. Ads aren’t too annoying to get past. I’ve also never had to add credits.
Impressed
by Eralda X. on 2018/04/27 23:56
This is the first time I've ever used this kind of an app. It has surpassed all my expectations. The call quality is good, the service is amazing and the app works fast and easy. I would recommend this app to all my friends. I have thoroughly enjoyed it and I am grateful that in today's society we can rely on the technology that is available to us.
??????????
by DJonassaint on 2019/02/02 18:43
So I signed up for this app and it was GREAT...but the glory was short-lived. Apparently I had to pay for my number in order to receive codes that I’d try to get from different websites to secure my accounts, etc. I don’t understand that if everything is free then why was my codes being held hostage on exchange-for-change? (I’m using a free app, ofc i have change lol :-p). I love this app and still do, I just hope that they REALLY make it free the next time around.
It’s good but...
by QueenJazzy5 on 2018/01/26 08:13
This is a good app. I love how it can make calls and text! The little problems I have is sometimes my messages and calls DO NOT pop up in my notification sometimes. I will have to click in the app and refresh it just to see if someone text me. I’ll mis a text from someone hours ago because it never showed up in my notifications. It also happens when people call. It would show up as “miss call” but I will never get the call. PLEASE FIX THIS PROBLEM!
Failing...
by rockstarbarbie1 on 2018/12/20 18:23
Loved the app in the beginning- I got this for my new business. Now it’s failing me!! I am not receiving notifications when I receive texts and phone calls. I’m missing out on business which is aggravating me!! I have to open the app to see if anything has come through and I’m missing a lot of calls/ texts. It just makes ME look flakey when in fact it’s the app!!! But my customers don’t know that... The problem is I can’t take this number anywhere else and it’s printed on my cards and google, etc... this app needs a big makeover and quick! It’s a waste of $4.99
Annoying Ads Force me to Delete
by W0LFPACK18 on 2020/01/24 00:29
For the simple purpose of being able to disguise your actual number by using this instead, it works as needed. HOWEVER, the constant notices to “use it or lose it” messages if you stop using it for a week or two are ridiculous. You’ll get them constantly until you use it again or lose the number. Then you’ll get CONSTANT notifications requesting you pay & go premium. No thanks. Deleted.
Helpful App indeed but serious delays
by Blessable on 2017/11/17 12:55
I’m thankful for this app reason being its free to use as I’m out of minutes on my main line, however there has been serious delays when on a call (I talk and the person on receiving end hears what I said seconds later) and we end up talking over one another. Experienced about 1 or 2 dropped calls also. Other than that this app serves its purpose and allows me to keep in contact with those that matter.
Love it
by fosisticated on 2017/09/14 02:43
It's really good. Works as says and it's UI isn't ugly like a lot of other apps out there. BUT the notifications are ridiculous. I keep getting notifications telling me about calls from US and Canada or how I got 10 free credits even though I paid 3.99 and have a premium membership. It even says "this subscription is active" but these ads are SO annoying and very, very frequent. I might have to go back to TextNow even tho their UI isn't the best. And that's unfortunate because I was so ready to buy 2 numbers and ughhh :(
Great App. =)
by randyet62208 on 2018/09/02 17:54
I was needing an app so that I could use my phone until I had the funds to get it turned back on. Well I came across this one I’m glad I downloaded it. It works wonderful! It lets you choose a local number. The text message feature is great. So far no complaints about it. I would definitely suggest it.
Calls drop!!!!!all the time!!!
by coll9ctor on 2018/04/18 17:50
I can’t make a call seriously!!! The calls drop almost all the time then you have to watch some silly ad that takes 5 sec to go away then the call drops again, then next call and the same process continues. I’ve been using the service fo over 6 months it’s was great at first but now it’s just terrible. Will have to find new ap. I give 2 stars because it used to work good but now there just pumping ads all over causing malfunctions I believe but who knows!!!!
Just like every over app getting greedy for money
by Breezybee4 on 2018/09/06 21:48
Until today I noticed that before I’ve had this app for maybe four years I could easily delete your number and create a new one for free and the reason why I like this app over every other app is because they had literally unlimited minutes which meant that you could go ahead and make calls for however long you want and now they have a where you have to buy new number just got to keep in mind that nothing last forever thinking about jailbreaking😂
Constant iTunes Charge Attempts and Crashes
by iPaul4 on 2019/03/29 19:56
Using free plan initially to evaluate app, every time a message comes in and or I open the app I get an iTunes login request popup. I cancel the request but many users don't force iTunes to confirm each request and if you have touch id enabled there is good chance your finger is on the home button and you'll touch ID login to iTunes before you realize it. The direct correlation of, for me, rare iTunes login to this app is undeniable. App also crashes constantly less than a minute or two of app usage between crashes.
Cool hold
by lgbunb on 2018/01/14 17:52
It's a good app I like it it's better than most easy to use free not many problems at all is it is who complain I cant you should use it excellent app there are plenty of other apps out there no Habron little thing but this one for them fine just convenient for my use and I like it hopefully you do too thank you
Missing calls
by 57U on 2018/04/19 19:24
This app is sort of working, drops calls all the time. I am really frustrated. Plus phone number price has tripled, yet calls are being dropped all the time. I am really disappointed. On further usage, the call drops continue in midstream. The app is buggy if you want to buy a second phone number I am not sure what is white this app but it does not work right. If it drops the calls it does not work, hence the. One star. I really want to like it but it is just unreliable more than not it does not even ring. Just unacceptable.
Stephanie from Ohio
by Stephalishious on 2019/02/10 11:37
My phone service totally was the worse service/customer service Ive ever experienced so I started using my home and work WiFi so I could use the Free Tone app. It’s clear it’s free and I love it! Plus I love that you can upgrade for just a one time low amount and pick between what extra service you might need! 💜 it.
This app does not work
by App is frustating me on 2018/06/10 19:33
This is the glitches I have bumped into with this app. Calls: 1. They ring and then the call hangs up. I dial back and it gives a messaging saying that there is a call in process. When there isn’t. So now I dial a couple more x’s and same message. When the app just catches up to what I actually wanna do and then the call goes thru and I continue my call, maybe about 5 minutes later. Who had to take 5 mins just to get the phone to ring? 2. Sometimes the people can’t hear me on the other end. 3. When I’m hold with, idk the power company, for over 20 mins and the app closes and just drops the call. So I have to call again and wait in line. 4. But before waiting in line again, I had requested a call back and when they actually do call me back, it rang for a micro second and I missed the call. Yea this app is annoying
