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.

False advertising and scam calls
by progamer2121 on 2019/08/12 03:34
Since I have used this app I have gotten over 50 scam calls, usually 2 every day. It makes the most basic features overpriced and spams you with ads. And the most obvious lie is the name. How can a two dollar app be called FREETone?! I only haven’t deleted this because it allows me to communicate with android and I would NOT recommend it.
I bought a Swedish line
by stevee608 on 2019/08/10 19:25
I bought a Swedish line and I haven’t been able to make calls even when I bought call credits.
Why I rate this app at one star
by ABc12W on 2019/08/08 21:43
Keep ending my call at 60:05
Trash app
by 123847:)3$;&3!2 on 2019/08/05 02:00
You gotta pay for the credits then keep paying for the phone number to use then there are ads everywhere. That wouldn’t be so bad if the app actually called and worked whenever I call people though.
My thoughts

My number keeps getting hacked , people are getting calls/weird texts from the number and I’m not the On sending them 👎🏾👎🏾👎🏾
Hello
by usee2822 on 2019/07/17 13:54
I renewed 2 numbers from the App Store but only one got renewed only to discover that the other one was already expired . And I was already charged . I tried to get to get another number but I’m being asked to pay again. Can I get a refund or a new second number .
It’s good but this is a deal breaker
by Druken Shipper on 2019/07/08 17:08
I love and it works but on multiple occasions my number and account is deleted and the app shuts down. I don’t know if it’s just me that’s gotta end.

Don’t ever use freetone or textme
by ntk2001 on 2019/07/01 22:00
With 4 months remaining in my $19.99/yr number the app keeps saying my free number expired.. and there is no way to contact them to correct this issue. Don’t bother using them as your second number because you can’t rely on it.
Tuh
by sknbejen on 2019/06/27 16:48
This is a ok app. It’s just most of the time your texts randomly disappear and if the persons number is not saved to your actual device u lose everything

App gets stuck at the end of every call
by Noreennn on 2019/06/12 19:58
The app is good but it gets stuck every time I dial a number, after the call it says thanks for being the power user then gives an option of either by completing the task . Or do it later. But when I push nothing happens so I have to turn off my phone every time after one call.

The number of unread??
by mrdrift420 on 2019/06/12 02:16
My app displays. 24 in red it’s saying I have 24 things unread.... unread what?? I checked texts I have none , I checked voicemails I have none , I checked missed calls I ha e none .... what’s left that I could of missed ??? It’s annoying it should be 0!
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.
Useless

I am overseas and trying to call my bank in US but “can’t be reached using textme”(message).
too many spam calls
by erieguy on 2019/06/06 21:16
I got this app because it let me choose my area code and I’m moving to a part of the country that is served by that area code. But I haven’t moved yet, meaning I haven’t given anyone my Free Tone phone number. However, I’m constantly bombarded by calls, two or three a day, which can only be spam. (Of course I never answer them.) I’ve deleted the app.
Bad call

This app is terrible
by brien diencudkens on 2019/05/24 08:39
Worked fine when I was in Afghanistan for calling home for emergencies I guess in the year I havent used it they added this credits system and wont even let you call without telling you what the problem is. Terrible app dont download dont know why it had to change everything when it used to work just fine
Waste of time
by ALV323 on 2019/05/22 03:50
Doesn’t work at all and I ended up paying for some credits thinking it would let me call.. I input the number and it just keep freezing on me.. definitely do not recommend.. trash app. 👎🏼
Deleted old msgs keep reappearing as unread msgs
by unknown anonymously 00805 on 2019/05/21 19:40
I love this app. My only issue that I am having with this app is the fact that my old deleted messages will not erase !!!! And a lot of old read messages keep popping up as unread. If you could fix this problem that would be thankful and I’m pretty sure a lot of people would enjoy that!!
Don’t pay
by D side Falcon on 2019/05/20 13:11
I payed for This not to have ads for a week and get a free number but guess what I got none of the above
Not free!
by J0K3K1LL1NG on 2019/05/19 16:16
How come the app has the word free in it, but for certain messages, some IMPORTANT messages, you have to get a subscription for a week or longer 🤔 last time I checked, THAT’S NOT WHAT FREE MEANS!!!! Not happy!
False advertising. Do not buy it
by wannabe1st on 2019/05/14 23:42
This app is false advertising. You get nothing for the money you pay. Is you want a number or anything else you have to pay. It is full of ads. Do you want to remove it? 9.99$. Want a phone number? 5.99$/week.
Bad text
by dfygygh on 2019/05/09 02:04
You should not let people text you that are not in your inbox
False advertisement
by Goof jug on 2019/05/07 16:17
If you have the word free in your name the naturally I would believe the app is free. However once my number expired the app was trying to charge me to reserve a phone number that says free in the name. Outside of that it was a functional app. But please take the word free out of your name if the app is not entirely free because that could be considered false advertisement.
No sound?
by Gsjcuvjxjdsbsjch on 2019/05/01 19:35
Suddenly have no ability to get notifications nor even preview ringtones. I tried everything like checking my ringtone volume and main volume on iPhone, then I even went into settings. Everything was obviously still set up properly since Ive never had this problem before. I love this op so I do hope this gets fixed.
Very happy with this app
by Heidi ellefson on 2019/04/24 03:23
This is by far the easiest and cheapest phone app I have found (and I’ve done them all) it lets you call and text with no strings attached it is a 5 star for me lol
crashes on calling
by gujjupatel007 on 2019/04/21 18:39
its used to be working fine but some reason now its not make any US call and when someone call me its only shows miss called but never ring the phone
Stopped working after a few days
by F U P C H on 2019/04/21 16:46
Paid the $.99 and it worked great for a few days (mostly) so I feel I definitly got my moneys worth. Now I cannot make calls or receive calls but I do get missed call notifications and voicemails. I was thinking about going premium but not now.
Yup

Crap.
by cmisen on 2019/04/18 14:10
You get a solid minute before the sound just cuts out. I even purchased additional credits hoping that would fix the problem. It didn’t.

Not a good app
by Truredbone on 2019/04/14 19:01
The call feature isn’t strong my calls dropped several times. Also the ads play durning a call which cause the call to drop. Text Now has no ads.. in deleting & sticking with them
Scam! Not free- Paid tone!

I chose my number for Florida, but after I purchased, they gave me a Texas number. Waste of money. Did I mention that It freezes a lot??? Not recommended! I can’t even reach customer service, only FAQ!

STEALING FROM MY ACCOUNT
by pleasestoop on 2019/04/05 16:12
I’ve cancelled my subscription since the beginning of this year and they STILL have not stopped taking money out of my account . Every time I try to fix this or ask for my refund they said it’s not a good enough reason to get my refund ! SINCE WHEN IS A CANCELLED SUBSCRIPTION NOT a good enough reason to GET MY MONEY BACK ! I WANT MY MONEY BACK AND FOR YALL TO STOP TAKING MONEY OUT OF MY ACCOUNT !!! thanks you
Frustrated
by CPCwannaknow on 2019/04/05 05:08
This app use to be great. I use to get free calls and text. Then it changed to free text 1 cents per minute per call. This was still not a deal breaker. But now it’s 1 cent per minute per call and 5 cents per text. I don’t understand why you call yourself FreeTone or Textme.
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.

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.
Lire! Not free for anything

The ads are unbearable, they are all over the app, the top, the bottom, they pop up. It’s horrible. Google Voice was my go to but it stopped working. This works almost the same but these ads are just plain terrible. They shouldn’t interfere with my usage as much as they do. I am going to have to find an alternative.

by grubing on 2019/02/20 05:35
When first using the app it’s really good, good phone calls and able to hear without static. But whenever you text sometimes it wouldn’t go through and the person I would be talking to wouldn’t get my messages that I sent. I also emailed the costumer service but haven’t heard anything in 3 days now about the problem.
NOT FREE

by Loveflowes on 2019/02/14 02:53
I’ve had it about a month. Worked well until a week ago. I haven’t been able to call out or receive calls. People can leave a voicemail, but that’s all. Since I lost my iPhone, I’ve been counting on this app on my iPad as my only phone right now. Huge problem. Update: Do not use this app. It’s only free for a certain amount of calls, then calling and texting stop. Contacted the website, got an email back saying I have to “earn credits” to use again. THIS IS NOT FREE.
Worked well until it didn’t
by PulgaLA on 2019/02/13 22:33
Used it happily for a year with 3 different numbers and then I realized my phone was never ringing, I would be told missed call. I deleted, reinstalled and contacted them. I had just spent $20 for an annual number Went to company with the issue and followed all directions and they said the case was closed but nothing they told me worked. It’s been a month since I contacted them, 2 weeks since their last reply of “we are super busy”...no response in 2 weeks! I also now have been this last week told that my text English messages which were working are being received by people as non-alphabet (like code). They have sent me photos of the gibberish they are getting. It seems if I add an emoji, the text is corrupted but it’s happened with non emoji texts too
I do like the app but I don’t like how it’s treating me
by cupcake🍫 on 2019/02/13 22:19
I hope y’all get this cause I have a problem with my freestone messages.it won’t let me send pictures to my friend!I know that she’s not fully not on there but she got a new phone and it still won’t work.i’m wishing for y’all to please let everyone that is on the phone will have pictures send.cause I won’t be able to see my bffs art!thank you for listening.😌❤️

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.
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.
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
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.
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
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.
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.
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
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!!!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!!!👍👍😃
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.
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.
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
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
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.
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
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!
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😂
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.
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
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.
Actually free!!
by LeiLou<3 on 2018/05/25 20:14
I am so glad to find an app that does what they claim they do, make free calls!! Other apps claim to give free calls but then you gotta “earn” credits by watching ad after ad after ad or sign up for services that I don’t want or need! This app is great, super clear calls and very convenient. I highly recommend, thanks!!!
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
Awesome app
by thesilencer12 on 2019/02/13 00:42
So for a while I was using textPlus and it was good in the beginning but after a while, when I texted friends they never received the texts. That when I decided to try a different app and I like the fact I can also make phone calls on this unlike textPlus. I’m so happy I found this app.
Delete this app and stay away!!!
by Violette2007 on 2018/03/16 23:20
Now let me just say this, the app does work how it’s supposed to BUT, I keep getting 3s blank voicemails and calls from random numbers in places I’m far way from.. I deleted this app because of this since I’m honestly freaking scared. LIKE HOW THE HELL DID YOU GET MY NUMBER!?!?!? WE DON’T EVEN LIVE IN THE SAME STATE!!! I need an explanation to this! I shouldn’t be getting calls and voicemails that say nothing from random numbers that just hang up the minute I answer! This greatly disturbs me and I think all of you reading should stay away at all costs! 0 stars if. Could
It’s good but can be better
by grubing on 2019/02/20 05:35
When first using the app it’s really good, good phone calls and able to hear without static. But whenever you text sometimes it wouldn’t go through and the person I would be talking to wouldn’t get my messages that I sent. I also emailed the costumer service but haven’t heard anything in 3 days now about the problem.
Can’t receive calls
by 714CJay on 2018/05/26 06:58
I can make calls out and The person on the other line can here me just fine, but when I receive a call and I answer both of us can’t hear each other I’ve attempted multiple times with no success I can’t hear anyone when they call me!
Used to Work…
by TylerLorence on 2018/11/16 01:12
This app used to work for me, but now, every time I receive an SMS message, I’ll receive this text message instead: “Secure your number! The type of message you received can only be read if you buy your number for 1 week or more. Click on the link below to buy this number and read immediately your message. textme://?action=edit_phonenumber&phone_number=+1[My phone number] The Team at TextMe.” What’s weird is that I never bought this for only a week or as a temporary number. I’ve had this phone number for months, maybe even a year. Also, whenever I click on the link, it just redirects me to my profile/“Me” page. I am really disappointed that this is happening. If you could provide me support, that would be great! Thank you! ~ Tyler (T_nology)

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.

False advertising and scam calls
by progamer2121 on 2019/08/12 03:34
Since I have used this app I have gotten over 50 scam calls, usually 2 every day. It makes the most basic features overpriced and spams you with ads. And the most obvious lie is the name. How can a two dollar app be called FREETone?! I only haven’t deleted this because it allows me to communicate with android and I would NOT recommend it.
I bought a Swedish line
by stevee608 on 2019/08/10 19:25
I bought a Swedish line and I haven’t been able to make calls even when I bought call credits.
Why I rate this app at one star
by ABc12W on 2019/08/08 21:43
Keep ending my call at 60:05
Trash app
by 123847:)3$;&3!2 on 2019/08/05 02:00
You gotta pay for the credits then keep paying for the phone number to use then there are ads everywhere. That wouldn’t be so bad if the app actually called and worked whenever I call people though.
My thoughts

My number keeps getting hacked , people are getting calls/weird texts from the number and I’m not the On sending them 👎🏾👎🏾👎🏾
Hello
by usee2822 on 2019/07/17 13:54
I renewed 2 numbers from the App Store but only one got renewed only to discover that the other one was already expired . And I was already charged . I tried to get to get another number but I’m being asked to pay again. Can I get a refund or a new second number .
It’s good but this is a deal breaker
by Druken Shipper on 2019/07/08 17:08
I love and it works but on multiple occasions my number and account is deleted and the app shuts down. I don’t know if it’s just me that’s gotta end.
Buggy

Don’t ever use freetone or textme
by ntk2001 on 2019/07/01 22:00
With 4 months remaining in my $19.99/yr number the app keeps saying my free number expired.. and there is no way to contact them to correct this issue. Don’t bother using them as your second number because you can’t rely on it.
Tuh
by sknbejen on 2019/06/27 16:48
This is a ok app. It’s just most of the time your texts randomly disappear and if the persons number is not saved to your actual device u lose everything

App gets stuck at the end of every call
by Noreennn on 2019/06/12 19:58
The app is good but it gets stuck every time I dial a number, after the call it says thanks for being the power user then gives an option of either by completing the task . Or do it later. But when I push nothing happens so I have to turn off my phone every time after one call.
Love It! ! !

The number of unread??
by mrdrift420 on 2019/06/12 02:16
My app displays. 24 in red it’s saying I have 24 things unread.... unread what?? I checked texts I have none , I checked voicemails I have none , I checked missed calls I ha e none .... what’s left that I could of missed ??? It’s annoying it should be 0!
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.
Useless
by zela82 on 2019/06/08 15:09
I am overseas and trying to call my bank in US but “can’t be reached using textme”(message).
too many spam calls
by erieguy on 2019/06/06 21:16
I got this app because it let me choose my area code and I’m moving to a part of the country that is served by that area code. But I haven’t moved yet, meaning I haven’t given anyone my Free Tone phone number. However, I’m constantly bombarded by calls, two or three a day, which can only be spam. (Of course I never answer them.) I’ve deleted the app.
Bad call

This app is terrible
by brien diencudkens on 2019/05/24 08:39
Worked fine when I was in Afghanistan for calling home for emergencies I guess in the year I havent used it they added this credits system and wont even let you call without telling you what the problem is. Terrible app dont download dont know why it had to change everything when it used to work just fine
Waste of time
by ALV323 on 2019/05/22 03:50
Doesn’t work at all and I ended up paying for some credits thinking it would let me call.. I input the number and it just keep freezing on me.. definitely do not recommend.. trash app. 👎🏼
Deleted old msgs keep reappearing as unread msgs
by unknown anonymously 00805 on 2019/05/21 19:40
I love this app. My only issue that I am having with this app is the fact that my old deleted messages will not erase !!!! And a lot of old read messages keep popping up as unread. If you could fix this problem that would be thankful and I’m pretty sure a lot of people would enjoy that!!
Don’t pay
by D side Falcon on 2019/05/20 13:11
I payed for This not to have ads for a week and get a free number but guess what I got none of the above
Not free!
by J0K3K1LL1NG on 2019/05/19 16:16
How come the app has the word free in it, but for certain messages, some IMPORTANT messages, you have to get a subscription for a week or longer 🤔 last time I checked, THAT’S NOT WHAT FREE MEANS!!!! Not happy!
False advertising. Do not buy it
by wannabe1st on 2019/05/14 23:42
This app is false advertising. You get nothing for the money you pay. Is you want a number or anything else you have to pay. It is full of ads. Do you want to remove it? 9.99$. Want a phone number? 5.99$/week.
Bad text
by dfygygh on 2019/05/09 02:04
You should not let people text you that are not in your inbox
False advertisement
by Goof jug on 2019/05/07 16:17
If you have the word free in your name the naturally I would believe the app is free. However once my number expired the app was trying to charge me to reserve a phone number that says free in the name. Outside of that it was a functional app. But please take the word free out of your name if the app is not entirely free because that could be considered false advertisement.
No sound?
by Gsjcuvjxjdsbsjch on 2019/05/01 19:35
Suddenly have no ability to get notifications nor even preview ringtones. I tried everything like checking my ringtone volume and main volume on iPhone, then I even went into settings. Everything was obviously still set up properly since Ive never had this problem before. I love this op so I do hope this gets fixed.
Very happy with this app
by Heidi ellefson on 2019/04/24 03:23
This is by far the easiest and cheapest phone app I have found (and I’ve done them all) it lets you call and text with no strings attached it is a 5 star for me lol
crashes on calling
by gujjupatel007 on 2019/04/21 18:39
its used to be working fine but some reason now its not make any US call and when someone call me its only shows miss called but never ring the phone
Stopped working after a few days
by F U P C H on 2019/04/21 16:46
Paid the $.99 and it worked great for a few days (mostly) so I feel I definitly got my moneys worth. Now I cannot make calls or receive calls but I do get missed call notifications and voicemails. I was thinking about going premium but not now.

by cmisen on 2019/04/18 14:10
You get a solid minute before the sound just cuts out. I even purchased additional credits hoping that would fix the problem. It didn’t.

Not a good app
by Truredbone on 2019/04/14 19:01
The call feature isn’t strong my calls dropped several times. Also the ads play durning a call which cause the call to drop. Text Now has no ads.. in deleting & sticking with them
Scam! Not free- Paid tone!
by IwantIPadplz on 2019/04/13 13:41
I chose my number for Florida, but after I purchased, they gave me a Texas number. Waste of money. Did I mention that It freezes a lot??? Not recommended! I can’t even reach customer service, only FAQ!

When burning old number then trying to get a new first number,it only gives me the option to buy a plan! I have 48 credits and no number!
STEALING FROM MY ACCOUNT
by pleasestoop on 2019/04/05 16:12
I’ve cancelled my subscription since the beginning of this year and they STILL have not stopped taking money out of my account . Every time I try to fix this or ask for my refund they said it’s not a good enough reason to get my refund ! SINCE WHEN IS A CANCELLED SUBSCRIPTION NOT a good enough reason to GET MY MONEY BACK ! I WANT MY MONEY BACK AND FOR YALL TO STOP TAKING MONEY OUT OF MY ACCOUNT !!! thanks you
Frustrated
by CPCwannaknow on 2019/04/05 05:08
This app use to be great. I use to get free calls and text. Then it changed to free text 1 cents per minute per call. This was still not a deal breaker. But now it’s 1 cent per minute per call and 5 cents per text. I don’t understand why you call yourself FreeTone or Textme.
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.

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.
Lire! Not free for anything

The ads are unbearable, they are all over the app, the top, the bottom, they pop up. It’s horrible. Google Voice was my go to but it stopped working. This works almost the same but these ads are just plain terrible. They shouldn’t interfere with my usage as much as they do. I am going to have to find an alternative.

by grubing on 2019/02/20 05:35
When first using the app it’s really good, good phone calls and able to hear without static. But whenever you text sometimes it wouldn’t go through and the person I would be talking to wouldn’t get my messages that I sent. I also emailed the costumer service but haven’t heard anything in 3 days now about the problem.
NOT FREE

by Loveflowes on 2019/02/14 02:53
I’ve had it about a month. Worked well until a week ago. I haven’t been able to call out or receive calls. People can leave a voicemail, but that’s all. Since I lost my iPhone, I’ve been counting on this app on my iPad as my only phone right now. Huge problem. Update: Do not use this app. It’s only free for a certain amount of calls, then calling and texting stop. Contacted the website, got an email back saying I have to “earn credits” to use again. THIS IS NOT FREE.
Worked well until it didn’t
by PulgaLA on 2019/02/13 22:33
Used it happily for a year with 3 different numbers and then I realized my phone was never ringing, I would be told missed call. I deleted, reinstalled and contacted them. I had just spent $20 for an annual number Went to company with the issue and followed all directions and they said the case was closed but nothing they told me worked. It’s been a month since I contacted them, 2 weeks since their last reply of “we are super busy”...no response in 2 weeks! I also now have been this last week told that my text English messages which were working are being received by people as non-alphabet (like code). They have sent me photos of the gibberish they are getting. It seems if I add an emoji, the text is corrupted but it’s happened with non emoji texts too
I do like the app but I don’t like how it’s treating me
by cupcake🍫 on 2019/02/13 22:19
I hope y’all get this cause I have a problem with my freestone messages.it won’t let me send pictures to my friend!I know that she’s not fully not on there but she got a new phone and it still won’t work.i’m wishing for y’all to please let everyone that is on the phone will have pictures send.cause I won’t be able to see my bffs art!thank you for listening.😌❤️

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.
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.
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
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.
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
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.
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.
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
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!!!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!!!👍👍😃
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.
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.
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
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
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.
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
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!
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😂
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.
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
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.
Actually free!!
by LeiLou<3 on 2018/05/25 20:14
I am so glad to find an app that does what they claim they do, make free calls!! Other apps claim to give free calls but then you gotta “earn” credits by watching ad after ad after ad or sign up for services that I don’t want or need! This app is great, super clear calls and very convenient. I highly recommend, thanks!!!
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
Awesome app
by thesilencer12 on 2019/02/13 00:42
So for a while I was using textPlus and it was good in the beginning but after a while, when I texted friends they never received the texts. That when I decided to try a different app and I like the fact I can also make phone calls on this unlike textPlus. I’m so happy I found this app.
Delete this app and stay away!!!
by Violette2007 on 2018/03/16 23:20
Now let me just say this, the app does work how it’s supposed to BUT, I keep getting 3s blank voicemails and calls from random numbers in places I’m far way from.. I deleted this app because of this since I’m honestly freaking scared. LIKE HOW THE HELL DID YOU GET MY NUMBER!?!?!? WE DON’T EVEN LIVE IN THE SAME STATE!!! I need an explanation to this! I shouldn’t be getting calls and voicemails that say nothing from random numbers that just hang up the minute I answer! This greatly disturbs me and I think all of you reading should stay away at all costs! 0 stars if. Could
It’s good but can be better
by grubing on 2019/02/20 05:35
When first using the app it’s really good, good phone calls and able to hear without static. But whenever you text sometimes it wouldn’t go through and the person I would be talking to wouldn’t get my messages that I sent. I also emailed the costumer service but haven’t heard anything in 3 days now about the problem.
Can’t receive calls
by 714CJay on 2018/05/26 06:58
I can make calls out and The person on the other line can here me just fine, but when I receive a call and I answer both of us can’t hear each other I’ve attempted multiple times with no success I can’t hear anyone when they call me!
Used to Work…
by TylerLorence on 2018/11/16 01:12
This app used to work for me, but now, every time I receive an SMS message, I’ll receive this text message instead: “Secure your number! The type of message you received can only be read if you buy your number for 1 week or more. Click on the link below to buy this number and read immediately your message. textme://?action=edit_phonenumber&phone_number=+1[My phone number] The Team at TextMe.” What’s weird is that I never bought this for only a week or as a temporary number. I’ve had this phone number for months, maybe even a year. Also, whenever I click on the link, it just redirects me to my profile/“Me” page. I am really disappointed that this is happening. If you could provide me support, that would be great! Thank you! ~ Tyler (T_nology)
