BEST MESSAGING APP IN THE APP STORE!!!
by HungryGames8 on 2016/05/04 22:14
I searched for hours for an app that would let me text my Girlfriend, and when I came across this one i was skeptical, but after downloading it, i LOVE IT. It works perfectly, and the layout is efficient and attractive! 10 out of 10
👌
by Alejoooooooooooo11 on 2016/05/04 13:44
Great app 👍🏻
Free tone by Lisa Lynn
by Maryjane1942 on 2016/05/04 01:02
Let's admit it... At some point we all let r phones get cut off... An I have to literally say, that this app has been a life saver at my times... To get hold of my fiancé.... When he didn't know my phone was off.. So thank you free tone.. I've tried a lot of these apps.. An theirs always been catches.... But not this one which is why all the others have been deleted except yours... Need more reliable apps like this one....💝💝💝💝
Terrible
by Carlitapphotos on 2016/05/03 23:24
App keeps changing numbers and won't text or call anyone that doesn't us app unlike before.?
Mmm...
by Kriztii on 2016/05/03 13:42
Mas o menos
Good
by Datdamndash91 on 2016/05/03 13:01
I guess
Useless
by RemideeB on 2016/05/02 21:08
I love the unlimited calling and texting but it has a major issue! The other person on the line cannot for the life of me hear anything from my end! Which makes this app useless!
Voicemail
by YoungMoneyBabe on 2016/05/02 07:41
since Ive had the app, voicemail has never worked. I can't hear any voicemails people leave me.
Used to be good, not sure what happened
by Homesick83 on 2016/05/02 04:48
I used to receive and place calls all the time but now the only function I can use is texting. When I attempt to place a call it goes back to main screen. No Bueno.
Iphone4s
by Smilez78 on 2016/04/30 18:13
I use this a regular home phone ... Works great with my wifi sometimes. I can't answer the phone when it rings ... It won't work
It good free app Soo far
by F1NG3RZ on 2016/04/30 07:56
I love this app, only thing is everytime I delete message the nxt time I open app they all back. Other than that it's a great app
More than one number at a time
by Aidsprest on 2016/04/30 01:57
App is good, but should add the ability to have more than one number at a time.
Texts not working at all.
by Breffknee15 on 2016/04/29 23:14
Worked perfectly for the past year. Randomly stopped actually sending and reciewing SMS texts, but it'll display send. Just started this about a week ago. Not ok. It's def caused unecessary drama.
I want my number I've had on here for about a year
by ThaMonsta on 2016/04/28 23:16
You took my number without warning and its the Main number i use for everything even my job so u need to give it back
Good
by Paulholm2222 on 2016/04/28 21:45
But need some improvement in the calling aspect.
Awesome!
by Quanfenglin on 2016/04/28 01:18
It is total free to call and the calls are very good and smooth!
Good app. Used to be excellent. But now there are several bugs since the last 2 updates.
by sbcspspsbc72 on 2016/04/27 14:32
I've been using this app for about 4 or 5 years, since it was called TextMe. The app is great, but since the last 2 updates, I've experienced the following issues: 1) Multiple conversation windows from the same person I'm texting; 2) Super slow when I type a message; 3) Crashing and signing me out in the middle of a text exchange; 4) When I delete the multiple windows of conversation pertaining to the same person, later these windows are all back. I hope this can be fixed, as I enjoy this app a lot. Thank you.
Great job!
by Bbygirl94121997 on 2016/04/26 20:40
Everything is free, cool settings to personalize the app, crystal clear calling and a really pretty interface! I love it! Go FreeTone 📱📱📱😍😍😍😍😍😛😛😛😛
Great app one question
by Jingldipper on 2016/04/26 01:38
I can send pictures but I can't receive pictures anyone know if you can receive pictures
No longer free unlimited calling/sms
by Anonymous User 23579 on 2016/04/25 22:35
This app used to be my go to app for free unlimited calling and texting to US mobile numbers. As of the latest update, I can't send or receive texts or phone calls to any number. Says I have zero credit balance and need 5 credits per SMS. I tried getting a new phone number assigned thinking that would fix things but they want me to pay for a new number. App is completely useless now. Can't call or text for free like I used to. Time to look elsewhere.
it's cool couple flaws to work out
by chevy1979cdubs on 2016/04/25 20:10
yea
Works 50% of the time
by yonny622 on 2016/04/25 17:02
The app when it works it's great but unfortunately it only works 50% of the time and customer serve is really slow. They respond weeks later.
Fix this
by Najla M. on 2016/04/25 13:27
I can't even send a text message cause every time I do try it never sends, it used to work great now it's basically useless
Great
by Chillin_stiff on 2016/04/25 01:03
It's a great app except sometimes people don't get my txt messages. Please fix this.
Updates are killing the app
by Fvnhrsdf on 2016/04/22 17:18
Never had any problems with this app until the updates now I can receive texts from everybody else but my gf plzzzzz fix this!!!
Love it
by Methodicwriter on 2016/04/22 07:12
This app is very handy for somebody who has a cell phone that only has Wi-Fi service
Fix It
by Kelseycherryo on 2016/04/22 03:48
I do not know whether it is due to your update or if there is just a bug, but the application seems to not be updating properly and keeping my messages up to date. Every time I open the app to reply to a message, it takes longer than it should to load. When I go to open it again, it does not keep the currency conversation on the home screen. Also every time I go to delete a conversation, the next time I open the application, it's there again. The app also keeps freezing and crashing.
Love this app
by Jennphoolery on 2016/04/21 18:32
Safe and easy to use
Good but...
by Ellayyeee on 2016/04/21 13:08
Great! I would give 5 stars if it notified me when I got a call. But it doesn't notify me when I'm getting a call. Please fix this. Thanks!
The calling is actually free
by MichaelThaWishWashCycle on 2016/04/21 08:54
All you need is an email and you're good
Good with a fatal flaw
by eltylxeno on 2016/04/21 04:28
I've been using this app as my main communication method for one specific friend, and I've had it for about nine months. With the old version, I never had a problem. However, with the rework that launched a while back, I started getting extreme lag whenever I opened my main conversation. Unresponsive for upwards of 15 seconds, very slow after that. I realized recently that this is because every text I have ever sent to this person has been stored, and is being loaded whenever I open that conversation. The old version used to have a system where you could "Load More" messages as you scrolled up. Please add that feature back...
Free tone app 💜
by MiMi Davis__ on 2016/04/21 02:14
😍😍😍😍 I sooooo love this app !!! It's absolutely free !!! I couldn't believe it !!
App won't let me delete after 3/19/2016
by Larelle1020 on 2016/04/20 19:26
After March 19th anything I delete or read still shows up as unread or pops back up after I delete a message FIX IT, also fix MMS!!!!!!!!!!!!
Basically non functional
by Solitan A. on 2016/04/20 18:38
Unreliable. Texts only sometimes getting sent/received. Disappearing messages. This was a THE MOST important app on my phone; the malfunctioning of it is basically a nightmare to me.
It was good
by Nulalee on 2016/04/20 15:04
This was a good app until they started charging just to use the number they generate for you. 🖕🏾🖕🏾👎🏾👎🏾
Not bad
by mpdavis86 on 2016/04/20 04:51
Has a few bugs and problems that are a little annoying. Other than that's it's a good app.
Wont let me send text
by Hardcore Country on 2016/04/20 02:36

More visually pleasing.
by Alpaca Alice on 2016/04/20 02:04
Neat and all. You can text and call, but I still can't receive photos from people who don't use the app.

Worked great until...
by Military mom/wife on 2016/04/18 16:17
The app was awesome until it updated and now I can't send messages or make a call without it crashing. Once it's fixed I'll change my review.
Love this app
by Dread20 on 2016/04/18 10:52
I like this app it better than all the other ones Iv been using if I could give it 10 stars I would it really works and I don't have any problems with using it.
Life saver
by Chjg03 on 2016/04/18 02:02
I have horrible cell service where I live. This app allows me to use my cell through wifi with great reception.
Conversations Disappear?!
by m3t4l_h34d on 2016/04/17 21:52
Every time I open the app at least one if not all of my message threads are gone?!? Needs a major update!
I've used it often in a pinch.
by Lunchroom2112 on 2016/04/17 05:10
Works great when needed!
Excellent
by Monêt on 2016/04/17 05:09
I've been using this app for just about a year now and all I can say is that I absolutely love it.. Yes at times it may have ads or this recent crash but honestly that is nothing.. I'm using this phone to talk to all of my friends and family for FREE!! It's like I have service, even though I only use it during wifi! This is absolutely one of the best aps that they could have came up with for FREE!!! I love it!!
Why does it keep crashing
by Ndhgd on 2016/04/17 02:56
I hate that
Awesome
by FedEx Buddhists on 2016/04/16 22:08
This is an good app 🤘🏾🤘🏾
The best
by Libiano on 2016/04/16 14:16
As far as I am concerned this the best phone app I have ever seen. Used to have another one for years but this one takes the cake. Thank you
App works great
by Lmedevac on 2016/04/16 02:03
Just had to delete then reload it.
DON'T PAY
by Wolff14309 on 2016/04/16 00:34
PAID THE 1.99 A MONTH NOT TO HAVE ADS...BUT THEY STILL APPEAR!!!!
Is not working the way it used to
by big no sweet on 2016/04/15 21:43
I burnt my number hoping to get a new one. It don't give u a area code from where you chose anyone. Why
Such an amazing app!!
by : Nobody on 2016/04/15 16:10
Usually I don't write reviews for apps. But this one deserves to be well known. (And they didn't even prompt me to write one.) it's a very solid application, and it almost never glitches or crashes. Very reliable quality when calling, you can set up voicemails, and each update keeps making this better and better. I love it. Oh and the ads only pop up after a phone call. Which I am totally okay with. Very unobtrusive. Keep up the good work developers!!
NOT FREE
by Momo8787873232324324 on 2016/04/15 11:54
This app is not free it's asking me to pay for the number when it clearly says "FREE NEW NUMBER FOR YOU IPHONE OR IPOD etc
Never should have gotten the update
by Gigi2139 on 2016/04/15 11:25
Ever since I got the update it's always crashing 😒😒😒😒
Hour
by To many review questions1234 on 2016/04/15 10:54
If I call someone it always cuts me off at one hour and I always have to call back then get it hangs up at one hour again
Free tone update
by laCHlC on 2016/04/15 04:47
Love the whole new interface. I had issues trying to open initially after the update, but as someone suggested which to remove and install and that worked!!
Great!
by Zombilon on 2016/04/15 03:32
Perfect for what I use it for; turning my iPod into an iPhone! Thank you! This is the only usable free app of its kind on the App Store!! {The interface is really nice, okay? And I like how you can change the color of your text bubbles... But the ads... Worth it regardless though lol}
review
by Autieboo101ao on 2016/04/14 23:50
I wish my ipod was new enough to get this app
super frustrating
by 👎👎👎👎👎👎💩 on 2016/04/14 19:55
this update is awful i cant even dial out .. pure bs
Beyond bad.
by PJisOmg on 2016/04/14 14:27
Crash 100% after update. How could this type of quality be able to pass QA? Who would ever allow this to release?
ANNOYING MESS UPS
by M4RY_ on 2016/04/14 13:39
I cannot receive Incoming calls. EVERYTIME I want to text someone the app crashes and I try again then crashes. The latest update didn't do anything to fix any of the other problems. And the quality of our phone calls are worse. When I talk to someone they keep saying I'm breaking up/can't understand me. Fix it and you will get good reviews!!!!! (You can send pics now)👍🏼
Update TERRIBLE
by Stillstanding34 on 2016/04/14 10:45
Every since upgrade app crashes I can't click on No name for conversations past or present! I am a faithful user! I'm getting ready to flip flop on you. Terrible terrible fix app asap
Not working in iPhone
by Dipesh Dahal on 2016/04/14 07:04
I have seen it is not working at the iPhone. Before it used to work but now a days the app is not opening. I think something is wrong with it. Please it needs to be fixed. Dipesh Dahal
A Hiccup But Great Update!
by Jorge creator on 2016/04/14 06:00
As others have commented, there is a consistent crash that occurs when you try to open certain conversations. They did send a message (one that didn't make the app crash thankfully) addressing this issue. A simple reinstall and the app works good as before. The new features make this app more versatile with the ability to share to the app through the share screen. Keep it up, still my favorite text app
Ok..
by Me the someone on 2016/04/14 05:32
This app was great at first until the latest update came out and this app started crashing for some reason as seen for that other people are complaining too. I can't text or call much of my family on this iPod anymore unless there is a better update that prevents this. So I suggest look for another app until the stars go up for this one.
I can't do anything!! 😩
by AWESOME 13254748 on 2016/04/14 04:57
After the new update, it keeps crashing!! Please fix this!
This WAS so great....please fix!
by Asunlaugh on 2016/04/14 04:14
Recent update and app just crashes. Darn! Please make it work again AND bring back the character counter!
best calling and texting app!!
by itzjimmyyy on 2016/04/14 01:49
Keep up the good work guys! love the new update features
For those who crash after update....
by DrFeelGood3992 on 2016/04/14 01:05
Just redownload the app. I had the same thing happen to me so I deleted the app and reinstalled it. Don't bash on the app, I've been able to call my family across the world while deployed overseas, let alone text them. Clear quality for over hours for free as long as you have a solid wifi connection, you just can't beat that.
Awsome app
by Ninjaswordfishie on 2016/04/14 00:52
Great app for texting people on devices that aren't phones
DO NOT UPDATE

Texting app
by SweetieB4596 on 2016/04/13 18:13
I love this app the only reason it's not getting 5 stars from me is because the calling isn't the best.

App is okay, but crashes when I try to open a certain message. Fix this please
Needs to fix bugs
by Phantom Girl1887 on 2016/04/13 10:31
When I usually logged on it showed me the messages that needed to be read, but with the update u can't see that. When you would try to click on the message to text someone it would close you out of the app. I love this app before they change anything. Now I can't stand it.
great app
by Q8bAss on 2016/04/13 08:47
the app works perfectly and did whats supposed to do no hidden charges true ...thanks
Really
by Lalunafeachelupas on 2016/04/13 06:49
This was a really great app till I recently updated it. It shuts me down when I try to open a conversation when I get a new message it kicks me right out. Please fix Asap!
Awful!
by Thing3 MEE on 2016/04/13 06:11
Every time I try to select a conversation, the app crashes! It won't crash if I do anything else! Please get this bug fixed!
Crashing
by Cricket3cricket on 2016/04/13 05:00
The app opens but crashes as soon as I touch a contacts name. I like this app. Please fix it.
DO NOT UPDATE!
by 2DCombo on 2016/04/13 04:47
Latest update crashes your phone if you select someone in your contacts to call/text. Also crashes if you text said person. Hopefully they can fix this
New update is horrible
by Diego504_DR on 2016/04/13 02:56
Ever since the new version I can't access my messages and the app restarts.
Great?!
by Oacc on 2012/01/28 20:09
This app is great for sending pics, and messages ASSUMING you have wi-fi. If you don't, you cannot send or receive messages at that time. It is great for home use though. I wanted to alert people that you ca delete all messages by going to the column on the left that shows your current conversations. If you slide from left to right on the right side of each bow, it will give you the option to delete which deletes all messages in that conversation. Also the emotion faces do not show up to others as the appear to you, the happy and sad show up as smiles and frowns, but the others show up as cons using meaningless symbols. Over all, I would recommend this app but I do ABSOLUTELY HATE that you can't send or receive mail without wi-fi which makes it hard to keep in touch when I a car or in a building free of wi-fi if you may be trying to check u on plans or something. But, this app is absolutely FREE which is awesome and better than nothing if you don't have an actual phone I would love calling though! Enjoy!!
The only phone & text app you need!
by Angus McDangle on 2016/02/10 19:56
This really works. I ended up with a Florida phone number which made me lol as I'm in Okla. but it works great. As long as you're on wifi you get 200% free calls & texts. For some reason it doesn't like some 800 numbers? 800, 844 ect. But that's bout it! If you live in a metropolitan area most places have free wifi anyway. Just leave you wifi "switch" turned on, if you have an iPhone. I see no reason why to pay $100+ a month for calls and texts when this app is free and it simply works! You can get credit coins, by watching 15 second commercials but I don't know what they are for? Maybe for international calling? I dunno. I've been using this app for 2 weeks now and am very impressed. You can even send & receive pics & have voicemail. A+++++ to whoever designed this app! Woot woot! Thanks for reading my review 🤘 🤓
Deleted my credits and history, changed my number
by Snickersnake on 2015/09/04 20:29
I logged in today and my credits and history were gone and my number had been changed. I had more than 5000 points and today when I logged in I had around 500. (I went through a lot for these points!). Also, a lot of people had my phone number for texting me and now I have to send out an update but the problem is I can't keep Freetone from changing my phone number again. They do state that they will change your number if you don't use the app often enough. But I used it regularly so there was no reason for this. And losing my history is awful because a lot of those numbers were not in my contacts. I've always had trouble with the alerts not working when I get a phone call or text. But I stuck with the app because I had so many credits. I guess there's no point now. And I would have to send out a new contact number to all of my friends and family anyway so I may as well start over with a different app. This app is the same as Textme, FYI.
Solid VOIP, saves you when you have NO CELL SERVICE
by Atazi on 2015/07/06 19:59
I find myself in the time of Groveland in December of last year. I discovered that if you try to make phone calls or use messaging using the standard apps on the iPhone or iPad, your messaging and phone calls will fail as the apps need a brief handshake before they can use the Wi-Fi. I tried several voice over IP applications that do not require the handshakes such as Google voice, Line2, Lingo, Vonage, and various others. I was informed by my receiving parties that the voice clarity, volume, and lossless transmission was significantly better using FreeTone. Also, as the name implies, it is free to use and easy to setup, even if you don't have an IT background. So, before you head off into the boonies, if you anticipate the need or desire to make or receive phone calls or text messages, take the time to sign up with FreeTone. My second choice is Line2 as it handles call screening, handling, and/or forwarding with a very user friendly GUI We just got back from Sea Ranch, near Gualala, and once again FreeTone was the best quality even on the really poorly configured wifi that was being stomped on by a neighbor on the same channel...So add a portable pocket sized wifi access point/router and you will cover all bases! I would give it a 5 star rating except the call handling is inferior to Line2.
Good texting (no pictures tho), calls often garbled,
by Junglecat99 on 2015/04/30 08:00
This is a great ap for texting via wifi and it will easily save you $20 from your phone bill. ($20 for texting, AT&T? Highway robbery!) In fact, if you feel like you need a home phone, its worth trying this before you pay for one, as long as you have a backup for when the calls are scrambled, such as Skype (for use w/ friends and family) or another cell. I keep a cheap prepaid phone on hand for long distance travel and forgo paying for a regular cell phone altogether, since most of the places I go have wifi. It would be optimal if every call was clear but I do it because it saves me on the $100/month extortion for using my smartphone with either AT&T or Verizon (neither of which seem to realize that they are no longer monopolies). The savings are worth having to stand next to my router to get the clearest free/cheap calls w/ this ap.
It works!
by tchaikovsky sucker punch on 2014/11/28 04:55
I haven't had phone service for over 4 years. Too expensive. Free text/call apps which work over wifi have been more than sufficient for the purposes of someone like me, still sporting a 3GS with no intention of upgrading. So far, this app has worked perfectly for both texts and calls, much better than Text+ ever did. Calls are clear and don't lag - in fact it's taking some getting used to, having this work so well after months of Text+'s consistently deteriorating quality of everything. I just hope the quality of this app remains consistent. I rely on this for the rare times I need to talk to people through a plastic and metal box instead of real life. Please don't go the way of Text+ and allow your service to succumb to neglect!
Not getting Picture!!!!
by Brazil going Hexa on 2012/06/11 05:42
Not receiving pictures 😡. Texting works great, but needs picture fixed. Picture is a big deal. Will delete app after a month if not fixed. July 11th 2012 app will be deleted from my phone. Will not recommend to friends. I will call this app "weak sauce" from then on. Two stars cause at least the texting works. since the app waisted my time, I'm going to tell you about my day now. Now I'll tell you about My day. Today i woke up at 11:30 am, it's a Sunday. I ate cereal at noon. My mom yelled at me for not doing choirs. I farted and walked outside. Some drunk guy ran over my bike. I got mad and threw a rock at the neighbors window. I broke the window. Neighbor called the cops. I texted my friend and told him the cops were taking me in. He didn't believe me, I tried using this stupid app to take a picture. But never went through. Now my friend thinks that I am lying. So I called him weak sauce and that was the end of it. Picture was still not received until this day.
Love this app! Best free phone app out there!
by Lulubelleal on 2016/03/18 19:31
Lost my phone service & couldn't afford a new one. Searched all through the Apple Store. This appeared to be an awesome app but I didn't know if there were any hidden tricks they pulled on customers. Best app decision I've downloaded. You know they have the ads. The ads aren't even anything annoying, especially for a free phone & messaging app. No tricks. Totally free calls and messaging both to the user & anyone I contact. Connecting is flawless with much better call sound quality than any other commercial phone services I've ever used. Haven't had a dropped call yet. Best free phone app out there. As long as I have wifi I can call or message any number in the the U.S. I want to. Personal or businesses. Do yourself a big favor & download it.
Almost excellent
by Ly Dong La on 2015/02/24 22:01
This is the best free texting app on the app store that I've used so far, but its ability to send videos is rather unstable. This app struggles to send videos that even iMessage can send without a problem. Also, many of the free credit offers redirect you to malicious domains or scams before taking you to the app or survey you wish to download or fill out. In fact, many of the surveys are scams in the first place and most of them require a lot of personal information. Previous versions of the app allowed users to download selected apps for a decent amount of credits, but that isn't the case anymore. My final issue with the app has to do with how the app sometimes logs me out after I close it, resulting in all of my conversations being deleted. Could this have to do with iOS 8.1.3 compatibility issues?
By far the best texting app around!
by Look like a pro! on 2015/11/25 02:44
Seriously I have tried numerous texting & calling apps but I found home when I found this one! Don't get me wrong, the other similar apps were okay but you were always having to either re-up or switch something. No more NextPlus for me. Nothing personal I just like this app 100% better! It does what it says & if u need help their there for ya. I love that I have a LOCAL NUMBER right off the bat instead of getting sum outta state number that takes MONEY or an act of Congress to change! It's simple it's excellent it's everything u need in an app of this type. If ur thinking of gettin an extra line or number think no more because THIS is the app of apps! U won't be disappointed! Thanks y'all for creating an awesome app! Oh & BTW texting is FREE!
Fairly good
by Jillianlh on 2012/11/17 23:12
Well fist of all it is a way to connect with my friends which I like. But like all apps it has problems like for example it will once in a while exit from the app to the main screen. It is also one of the slower apps. But it is a great thing to have on an iPod touch for fun and free texting. I know that other people may read this and not believe me yet I still have problems with this app. It's not my iPod it the app I know this because I have tried and experimented with it on 4 iPod touches. I also think that it should make it so u don't need wi-fi to text I would be very happy if it would be fixed. Other than that love it. Far better than having to pay on a phone. Also I don't think the adds are too bad just a liitle sacrifice for free texting. This app brings texting to a whole new level. ;)
Not bad, and it works fine.
by Its wrong on 2012/12/15 18:25
I had a text plan in my cell before, and this app works fine just like my cell. Obviously I no longer have the text plan in my cell any more thanks to this app, and the best part is I don't have to pay to use it. There are some draw back for this app. Like other people mention, you don't know whether you receive any text or not until you open this app unlike the iMessage which I know immediately. The other one is there is a thin banner for advertisements. If you pay a small fee, you can eliminate it. Overall, I didn't experience the constant crash or other concerns. I'm thankful to this app and highly recommend it. Only reason that I give the four stars is that there is no alert system when a text is received. Fix it then it's worth five stars.
Great App!
by MistressNoob on 2016/01/30 08:27
I was actually surprised at how great it is! Considering mostly all other apps needs you to have credits and/or have the other person you are calling to have the same app in order to "talk for free". I've been on the phone with my boyfriend for almost 2 hours with no problem. Just need good connection :). No payment of any kind and they give you some free credits for out of country calls too. But I don't call out of country so this is great whereas I don't need the credits , so it is absolutely FREE TALKING!! And texting!! Other apps it would say my messages sent but and the people would get them but when/if they replied, I never received them on my end. But this seems to work well both ways on text messaging!! GREAT APP!!!
Awesome c:
by queento3 on 2013/04/01 22:28
I have a 2nd generation iPod touch and, out of all the texting apps I've used, this one is by far the best. The first texting app i had was called "Textfree". It was OK, I guess, but I had many wrong numbers texting me and none of the themes were good, also, you had to get 3 people to text you in order to make a customized theme. Then, I decided to get "TextNow", which wasn't very good because I was only allowed to open it once. After I closed it, I had to reinstall in so it opened again. I haven't experienced any of those problems, or any others, with TextMe. TextMe also has awesome customizable themes and allows you to choose YOUR OWN icon for yourself, unlike other texting apps. TextMe is a great texting app and I highly recommend it. C: 
Quirky but very functional app
by Paranormalcy on 2013/11/07 16:51
It sends texts timely. I've tested it for several days now. No delays or missed texts so far. When texting an image to a friend on Virgin Mobile, the image came up as a link to a webpage that was hosting the image for 7 days... Odd... but it worked. Not very secure however. You won't get a vibration alert on iphone 5 with iOS 7.03. However you will see a popup notification in the normal way on the password screen the next time you turn your screen on just like a normal text. And so long as you have the app running in the background,(have opened it once since you restarted your phone) you will get a text notification just like normal if you are in another app.
True to advertising! No payment method needed!
by Vinni Badabing on 2015/12/16 14:31
I had literally downloaded vibr purely off of number of downloaded but as soon as I opened it, "hello-- give me your money." Na bro, this app does the job. I made my first wifi call to my doctors office with not interruption or call quality issues. They heard everything I needed and I got my appointment simple as that, loud and clear. Definitely a great app. Using on an iPhone 5s currently. Oh and after that call, I still had the same amount of credits at the top... So I guess that's for international calling? Idk the FAQ sections explains almost 99.9% of the questions you have. Not a fake review, if you think it is I hope I get paid. But it was easy to be in favor of this app, all jokes aside - Vince
Not a bad app.
by jono0594 on 2013/04/18 10:40
I've been using this app for over a year now, and it has always served me well. The only big issue I've had is that it doesn't allow me to send or receive pictures. (Haven't tried it out with the update yet. . . Hopefully it's been fixed). That is what took away one start of my rating. The other star that was taken away was for the problems with the new update. I literally could not even open the app immediately after the update. It didn't even get passed the loading screen and would crash immediately every time I tried opening it. Fortunately, I decided to delete it and redownload it, and it has been working fine since then. Other than that, this app has been a very reliable texting app and, if you can put up with those glitches, I would definitely recommend it.
Just what I was looking for
by amuzichuck on 2011/09/13 23:40
After getting totally fed up yahoo's instant messaging app bug issues - I set out to find an app that would let me send and receive text messages to my friends that either don't have the same app or even a smartphone. I stumbled across this one and decided to give it a try since it was free. I am very happy with what it does and is exactly what I need. I am a little irritated with the ads but they haven't kept me from being able to send a message...yet. I did notice the review about the privacy issues and that concerns me a bit also...so I'll be checking into it. But overall I am very pleased with what I got for free. I hope the issues that the other reviewers are having are fixed as well because it is a pretty cool little app.
Love it!
by Pumpkin Babi on 2014/12/28 20:43
It's awesome! All of the other free text and call apps are scams and have so many fees and in app purchases:( but this is so dependent! If u google this app it says the numbers are temporary. I have found out that that's only if they don't have enough phone numbers to give to people but I have had this app for a little over a year now and I still have my number! I can text my friend fast and easy from a different state! Calling is okay. The reception is kinda not so good, but I found the key! Just turn your volume all the way up and turn on speaker! I have an iPod touch 7th generation and it comes with the message app but it doesn't work very well at all. Thank you so much free tone!
Amazing and a life saver
by P.funk_productions on 2015/01/11 19:44
I'm just starting out in the hair industry so while I'm building clientele I often become hesitant with giving out my number but with this app new clients can reach me directly from my main line of communication which is my cell phone. The app is very easy to navigate and if for some reason I am not around wifi clients still have the option of leaving me a voicemail which is easily retrieved once I connect back to wifi. Love it and recommend it for all and any. The only thing I would recommend adding is a blocked caller list that's it but that's also what decline is for. It keeps freezing though and getting on my nerves
The thing is
by SawgginIs4Lozers on 2012/05/29 00:50
Text me is a wonderful app but and some may say you have to have wifi and there is adds at the bottom of the screen there is a way to fix that if you have wifi at home you don't have to run up your cell phone bill only if you are out on the go if your not you are fine and second you can simply remove adds by clicking on the shopping cart at the top right of the screen and selecting the remove adds for a month for .99 cents or if you are planning on using TextMe for more than a year you can simply just click the remove adds for a year for only 4.99. I hope my advice can help.
Meh...
by Bradytwin1 on 2015/01/03 00:51
Okay, I admit, at first, this app was amazing. It got me my credits for minutes when I did the tasks and all of that, but now... It barely works. It's claiming the function for getting free credits is "no longer available," and I only get the credits I've so called "earned" 60% of the time. They've removed app downloads for possible ways of getting free apps, and the "tasks" that need to be done in the "Earn free credits" option NEVER work. They're usually about submitting valid contact information so you can win a free gulf card, and the task usually leads you to some stupid survey that doesn't give you the credits either. So in other words, it's EXTREMELY hard to obtain credits. But this app is the only way I've been able to contact a long distance friend of mine. That's the only reason I gave this App an extra star...
LOVE THIS APP
by Mccoy1515 on 2015/09/12 04:23
I have tried several different apps for "free texting" and "free calling" but there was always issues with calls getting dropped or not being able to hear the other person or text not going through in the right order if they even went through at all!! This is by far the best!!! The call quality is amazing we can hear each other as good as if we were in the same room!!! My text actually come through in the order they were sent or received!! This is by far the best app I ever downloaded!!! I will never have to try another one!! Thank u so much!!! Keep up the amazing work!!!
Liked it until the update
by DiDeTu on 2016/03/20 13:08
UPDATE: 4 stars: They DID fix my problem with the expiration date. Thank you! The application is my favorite because of the FREE calls/texts in USA and Canada, there is NO application that matches that. Thanks again! The latest update messed up the expiration date of my number and also their customer service. Send them a request to help you with a problem, and you'll most likely be ignored. I feel like they either don't care anymore about their customers, or they have so many requests, that they can't keep up with answering them. In February, before the update, I paid to keep my number for a year. The expiration date was Feb 21st, 2017. The update changed it to April 17, 2016. I sent them a few emails about the issue, and so far I only received an answer saying the problem was fixed, which is wrong. The expiration date is still Apr 2016. Sorry guys, you helped me really well in the past (I'm talking about last year, before the update), you were very fast in responding to requests and fixing the problems, but everything seems to be wrong now.
Phone without a phone
by One Kadiddlehopper on 2016/01/31 21:36
This app is awesome. I was able to text and call with my wifi network, and have someone call me right back. Wow. Without a phone! To make this even more impressive, I killed the app and put the iPod Touch in standby mode (black screen) and had someone call me. It worked! The device rang and I was able to answer the call. The only down side is that that action took a few seconds and the caller was getting frustrated thinking something was wrong. But with patience you can train your contacts to wait a few seconds. I wonder how long I get to keep the assigned number?
Just What I Needed!
by LetsTanInJapan on 2011/10/17 15:29
If you're just looking for the perfect texting app that's free, reliable, & incredibly easy to use, look no further. Because Text Me is exactly everything you need.... And more. I had been searching for a free reliable texting app; one that actually had a single number to contact, and didn't send multiple texts to people I was talking to with all that junk (MSG: & FROM: stuff) Thats the great thing about this app. Its fun, easy to use, and you don't have to confuse the bejesus out of your friends when you try to text them multiple times a day! So thank you so much Text Me, you certainly answered my wish.
Love how I am using an apple product and it is letting me text other non apple users!
by Gabrielle949 on 2013/01/04 05:37
I recently had my iPhone stolen, luckily with iCloud I still have my contacts linked to my iPad. The thing I love about this app is it is very easy to use, the tone when you get a text isn't obnoxious and you can text your friends with all different phones. It would be really nice if you could change the signature to automatically say something different or change the random phone number that shows up when you text someone, but the awesome thing is it works! I think everyone will enjoy this!
I love love love love this app.... But I have an issue.
by Pajyeeb on 2016/04/04 03:09
This app is the best app I had ever had! I've been using it for almost a year I believe, and it is the best. I get random phone calls here and there but it doesn't bother me as much. My only problem is I got a new phone and I had downloaded this app. But all my recent messages had been deleted. I was wondering if you can make the app so that I can sign back in to the old messages that I used to have it also helps me put in contact numbers. Thanks! I love the app very much and I would recommend it to users. It only needs wifi and a working device which is great.
An texting app that is awesome:)
by Samantha Rundberg on 2012/04/02 03:27
All you need is wi-fi then your already to text whoever you want in your contacts! I love it! Cuz whenever i get home from school i prank text people hehe shh… but other then that when I'm grounded from my phone i use this app to text my friends and i love it. It works amazingly. Im glad my friend told me about it and also i can send pictures! I would recommend if you don't have a phone but you have a iPod to get this app so you can text your friends! :) it is kinda slow u have to refresh it like once in a while but it still sends and recieves messages and i like it for that! :)
Does What It Says!
by redrose_129 on 2014/09/01 11:49
I got this app so my daughter would be able to text me without having a phone. And by the number of texts she sends me, I'd say it's working quite well! I've recommended it to my nieces and nephews as an alternative to buying a phone for them! The only annoying thing is unless the person you're texting is also a Textme user, although you can link them with your contacts, some of their names will not be listed on your recent texts...it'll show a phone number. And if you don't have someone's phone number memorized, you will have to open any text without a name and review the content to determine that person's identity.
Pretty Good, One complaint.
by AnimeFrantic347 on 2013/01/19 23:01
Well, I personally like this application alot. It works well, only problem is that you can't change the background colors, or edit it in anyway, I would get Text Me 2 but I have one of the older versions of iPod models and I don't really want to upgrade models because the new one is 299+ dollars, and Unless it is an iPhone i'm not paying that much. I would suggest that they upgrade this version of text me, to nothing over iOS 4.0 for those of us who have older iPod models can freely use this application and personalize it to our tastes. Other than that, it's a pretty good application. :)
Won't send texts to certain people
by Giminigrl on 2012/06/23 13:05
I tried sending a text to one of my friends who's moving across the country to Texas soon and even though my screen say it sent she said she never got it. I tried two of her numbers and she still didn't get it. So I gave her my number and I got her text. It doesn't make sentce. And I just made a guy friend and he gave his number to text. I texted him yesterday and he never texted back. If he doesn't text back untill July I'm assuming the same thing is happining with him. So this really needs fixing because it's very important for me to stay in touch with my friends. Especially if I won't see them again. Please fix it!
Text me
by Mat907 on 2012/02/19 21:57
I really like the Textme app, I am able to keep my messages a secret and the app is a lot faster then the other texting apps I have used. The Textme app doesn't have very many ringtones though, if it had more ringtones to choose from that were free it would make me rate the Textme app a 4 out of 5, but for now I will have to give a 3. I am also giving the Textme app a 3 because every time I go to change my nickname on the app it changes my entire number and then I have to spend already needed time sending people my new number. Overall this is the best texting app I have ever used and hopefully my complaints about the app are fixed soon
Outstanding.
by crasshipster on 2012/04/18 14:14
Update: Excellent app, well done and robust, but the ad placement drives me too crazy. I am going back to Gvoice and apps. If you don't mind the ads or paying a little for temp ad-free time, you will not be disappointed. Can't say enough good about it. Original: Before finding this newer version of the TextMe app, I went through a lot of hassle and apps --along with setting up a Gvoice account -- to have the same service and more with this single app. The real phone number and voice mail are premium features; location, pics and recordings are great features. It is all free. Amazing.
Best Texting App:)
by samantha_darling on 2013/04/02 20:30
This app is awesome, I can send my pictures and receive pictures! The themes are awesome and if you don't like them you can make your own! This app isn't slow and there are not a lot of ads, but you can take then off for a whole month for only .99! And 4.99 for a year, which is a good deal:) You get your own private number and you can text anybody with any type of phone or texting app! I haven't had any problems with this app at all, but it says that the Text Me 2 is better. I am going to stick with this one though because its awesome:)
Exceptional!!
by LordoftheWind on 2015/12/19 15:58
This app does exactly as advertised and works really well. There are ads but they don't get in the way at all like apps I've previously used. I can text people with absolutely no problems and the call quality is better than google voice which is what I used before this to call people. The problem with google voice is that you can only call them, they can't call you. With this app, I don't have that problem!! Worth the download to try it, you won't regret it. (Will edit my review is I experience any problems worth noting.)
TextMe!
by KnotRedee on 2013/02/10 21:24
Unlike a cell phone, your iPad does not have a working phone number assigned to it. So unfortunately, it is limited to iMessaging other Apple devices only. "TextMe" corrects this limitation by actually providing you with a new and unique phone number! Once it is assigned, you and your friends can update your contacts and start using your new iPad phone number. Your iPad will able send and receive texts to and from a non-iPhone just as if it were! "TextMe" was easy to set-up and is almost invisible in use. This is a great app and very worthy of all five stars!
Stillholdn
by Stillholdn on 2013/05/05 16:39
Just updated the May 1, 2013 change. What the hell did you do to this program? The contact list that normally appears on the left is now totally black. The area showing the conversations is only for the person that I contacted last, and there is nothing to press on that would bring up my other contacts. There is a phone icon on upper right, but I would never use this to make a phone call, since I am practically deaf. There are no other icons to press on to help me that I can see. I use my iPad to contact a number of people, including the hospice nurses that take care of my husband. Because I cannot use a regular phone, and I live in a rural area where text phones do not work 99% of the time, this is a very important means of communication for me. PLEASE TELL ME THERE IS ANOTHER FIX ON THE WAY.
Awesome.. thanks Freetone!
by Anonymouse895123 on 2015/01/20 22:03
My landline recently broke and I did not want to pay more money to have a technician come to diagnose it, since we hardly use it. Instead, I just cancelled it altogether to save myself 30 dollars a month. Freetone now helps me make calls within the U.S. Via the Internet when I need to. So far it has worked flawlessly and is easy to use. In fact I used it to make the 800 number call to my landline phone service company to cancel... Hehehehe... The call was pretty clear on my end and sounded just like a regular landline or cell phone! Thanks a bunch Freetone! <3
Great APP! But...
by Andy152948 on 2015/02/11 12:33
This is a great app because u get a number, and u can easily hand it out. You can also call, and text the us for free. So why did u give it three stars? One is because if you use this app while aboard. You have to earn credits to talk to people in the country your in. BUT the main thing is calling. You need an amazing internet Connection to call. If your internet ON WIFI is even a little bit slow you. You while get problems when calling. That being said, just experiment with different places. N eventually you will find a place where you can call! Hope this helps. I would download this app, all others want to charge u to matter who u call.
Good with a fatal flaw
by eltylxeno on 2016/04/21 04:28
I've been using this app as my main communication method for one specific friend, and I've had it for about nine months. With the old version, I never had a problem. However, with the rework that launched a while back, I started getting extreme lag whenever I opened my main conversation. Unresponsive for upwards of 15 seconds, very slow after that. I realized recently that this is because every text I have ever sent to this person has been stored, and is being loaded whenever I open that conversation. The old version used to have a system where you could "Load More" messages as you scrolled up. Please add that feature back...
Just a few problems

I love this app but there a few problems. 1. It randomly deletes parts of my conversations (I'm assuming it can only store so many then deletes em) 2. I won't get a call unless the app is open and my phone is unlocked. Otherwise I get a missed call notification. 3. When sending or receiving a call either I can't hear them or they can't hear me. Yup, that's about it. Other than those I love that you can customize the text bubbles and the background be changed to a pic you have in your phone :) I love hate this app but other apps have more problems. This is the bast one I've used :)
Overall good but some minorities
by Spartacubbinx on 2012/03/17 03:13
The app itself is overall very well put together and good, it works very nicely and is great to use. The defects are that at times it locks up and you cant delete stuff, you need to update the app please. A few changes u could make are you could let people decorate each person they text differently like for example say im texting bob and sarah and i wanna know when bob texts not sarah well with u being able to use only one sound i wont know when bob texts me unless i continuously look, i wanna be to know "oh thats bob's tone he texted me!". I know im only 16 but i really wanna help this app go far thank you. And i hope you take my ideas into consideration.
Seems Great So far!
by John and Deb on 2014/12/30 19:05
I just switched from text me (they told me they were switching to Free Tone & I had to) & all seems great with this app. As long as I use it through my wifi at home or another wifi my calls are free! Its kind of confusing though. When calling friends it still shoes my same # I've had for years from text me, but when they send me texts it goes to my old text me app? But my calls seem free now like they said they would be & as always texts are free. So when I'm home I Always use this app! Great job guys keep it the same!

TextMe is definitely useful, for me, as I do NOT have a smart phone. Rather, I have a DUMB phone, that does all that I need, with respect to voice communications. I also have an iPod (NOT an iPhone) which I have been using as a PDA (after my computer died and I was no longer able to use my Palm PDA, due to incompatibilities with the current OS. Using TextMe, I'm able to send SMS messages to people who do NOT have an Apple device. In other words, TextMe allows me to do text messaging, as if I had a smart phone. I'm also able to do video chats and voice chats. Very helpful. The ads are annoying, but I feel that they're worth it....
Best voice app ever
by 983672 on 2015/10/10 07:08
I love this app. I use it on my iPhone 5c which has no service and just use a hotspot I have and wifi and work and home. Voice quality is awesome. It's actually better then my other phone I have which has a regular cell plan. It's so easy to use. It's nice to have a second phone line without having another bill. I recommend this app to anyone that is thinking of trying it. Customer service is awesome as well. They helped me change my number when it gave me a non local number. They responded in a timely fashion.
I Love This App!
by Chelphille on 2014/12/22 02:18
Considering that I've used TextMe for years, and that they're now switching, I know that this app is basically the same, and just as good. Considering that I don't have a job yet, it's a great way to call my family and friends on my iPod, and when having limited texting it works great! I would highly suggest this app to those who can't afford a phone, or simply just want it to talk with friends! The interface is great for even kids to use, and I've used it for such a long time and I love that it continues to stay amazing!
Nice for free, has glitches
by sonic_sanity on 2015/02/27 22:49
I use this app mainly to text from my iPod touch (I have an older flip phone w/out keyboard). I tried to send a picture along w/ voice message and the photo vanished - not cool. It's easy to connect your contacts, create a personal outgoing message and other settings. Plus it will store incoming and outgoing messages / calls. You can earn or buy credits to make international calls. So for a free phone # (iFaux) I & free text it's pretty nice. Yes, there are ads always present - but not so intrusive or too disruptive. Free unlimited national phone calls & text (w/Wi-Fi) from an iPod is actually pretty sweet.
Really amazing app
by Brooke Approves on 2012/08/09 23:12
This app is amazing because it is very fast and easy to use and set up. It's just like a phone but beter because you don't have to pay money. It works for texting people with the same app a mobile phone and others with a different app can still receive messages . Plus you can even call landlines share videos and send pictures. All my friends use it. I advise you to get this app it's even beter than a cell phone. I garentee you'll fall in love with it and won't wanna stop texting. It's really that great!!!

I guess
Useless
by RemideeB on 2016/05/02 21:08
I love the unlimited calling and texting but it has a major issue! The other person on the line cannot for the life of me hear anything from my end! Which makes this app useless!
Voicemail
by YoungMoneyBabe on 2016/05/02 07:41
since Ive had the app, voicemail has never worked. I can't hear any voicemails people leave me.
Used to be good, not sure what happened
by Homesick83 on 2016/05/02 04:48
I used to receive and place calls all the time but now the only function I can use is texting. When I attempt to place a call it goes back to main screen. No Bueno.
Iphone4s
by Smilez78 on 2016/04/30 18:13
I use this a regular home phone ... Works great with my wifi sometimes. I can't answer the phone when it rings ... It won't work

More than one number at a time
by Aidsprest on 2016/04/30 01:57
App is good, but should add the ability to have more than one number at a time.
Texts not working at all.
by Breffknee15 on 2016/04/29 23:14
Worked perfectly for the past year. Randomly stopped actually sending and reciewing SMS texts, but it'll display send. Just started this about a week ago. Not ok. It's def caused unecessary drama.
I want my number I've had on here for about a year
by ThaMonsta on 2016/04/28 23:16
You took my number without warning and its the Main number i use for everything even my job so u need to give it back
Good
by Paulholm2222 on 2016/04/28 21:45
But need some improvement in the calling aspect.
Awesome!
by Quanfenglin on 2016/04/28 01:18
It is total free to call and the calls are very good and smooth!
Good app. Used to be excellent. But now there are several bugs since the last 2 updates.
by sbcspspsbc72 on 2016/04/27 14:32
I've been using this app for about 4 or 5 years, since it was called TextMe. The app is great, but since the last 2 updates, I've experienced the following issues: 1) Multiple conversation windows from the same person I'm texting; 2) Super slow when I type a message; 3) Crashing and signing me out in the middle of a text exchange; 4) When I delete the multiple windows of conversation pertaining to the same person, later these windows are all back. I hope this can be fixed, as I enjoy this app a lot. Thank you.
Great job!
by Bbygirl94121997 on 2016/04/26 20:40
Everything is free, cool settings to personalize the app, crystal clear calling and a really pretty interface! I love it! Go FreeTone 📱📱📱😍😍😍😍😍😛😛😛😛
Great app one question
by Jingldipper on 2016/04/26 01:38
I can send pictures but I can't receive pictures anyone know if you can receive pictures
No longer free unlimited calling/sms
by Anonymous User 23579 on 2016/04/25 22:35
This app used to be my go to app for free unlimited calling and texting to US mobile numbers. As of the latest update, I can't send or receive texts or phone calls to any number. Says I have zero credit balance and need 5 credits per SMS. I tried getting a new phone number assigned thinking that would fix things but they want me to pay for a new number. App is completely useless now. Can't call or text for free like I used to. Time to look elsewhere.
it's cool couple flaws to work out
by chevy1979cdubs on 2016/04/25 20:10
yea
Works 50% of the time
by yonny622 on 2016/04/25 17:02
The app when it works it's great but unfortunately it only works 50% of the time and customer serve is really slow. They respond weeks later.
Fix this
by Najla M. on 2016/04/25 13:27
I can't even send a text message cause every time I do try it never sends, it used to work great now it's basically useless
Great
by Chillin_stiff on 2016/04/25 01:03
It's a great app except sometimes people don't get my txt messages. Please fix this.
Updates are killing the app
by Fvnhrsdf on 2016/04/22 17:18
Never had any problems with this app until the updates now I can receive texts from everybody else but my gf plzzzzz fix this!!!
Love it
by Methodicwriter on 2016/04/22 07:12
This app is very handy for somebody who has a cell phone that only has Wi-Fi service
Fix It
by Kelseycherryo on 2016/04/22 03:48
I do not know whether it is due to your update or if there is just a bug, but the application seems to not be updating properly and keeping my messages up to date. Every time I open the app to reply to a message, it takes longer than it should to load. When I go to open it again, it does not keep the currency conversation on the home screen. Also every time I go to delete a conversation, the next time I open the application, it's there again. The app also keeps freezing and crashing.
Love this app
by Jennphoolery on 2016/04/21 18:32
Safe and easy to use
Good but...
by Ellayyeee on 2016/04/21 13:08
Great! I would give 5 stars if it notified me when I got a call. But it doesn't notify me when I'm getting a call. Please fix this. Thanks!
The calling is actually free
by MichaelThaWishWashCycle on 2016/04/21 08:54
All you need is an email and you're good
Good with a fatal flaw
by eltylxeno on 2016/04/21 04:28
I've been using this app as my main communication method for one specific friend, and I've had it for about nine months. With the old version, I never had a problem. However, with the rework that launched a while back, I started getting extreme lag whenever I opened my main conversation. Unresponsive for upwards of 15 seconds, very slow after that. I realized recently that this is because every text I have ever sent to this person has been stored, and is being loaded whenever I open that conversation. The old version used to have a system where you could "Load More" messages as you scrolled up. Please add that feature back...
Free tone app 💜
by MiMi Davis__ on 2016/04/21 02:14

Basically non functional
by Solitan A. on 2016/04/20 18:38
Unreliable. Texts only sometimes getting sent/received. Disappearing messages. This was a THE MOST important app on my phone; the malfunctioning of it is basically a nightmare to me.
It was good
by Nulalee on 2016/04/20 15:04
This was a good app until they started charging just to use the number they generate for you. 🖕🏾🖕🏾👎🏾👎🏾
Not bad
by mpdavis86 on 2016/04/20 04:51
Has a few bugs and problems that are a little annoying. Other than that's it's a good app.

The app was awesome until it updated and now I can't send messages or make a call without it crashing. Once it's fixed I'll change my review.
Love this app

Life saver
by Chjg03 on 2016/04/18 02:02
I have horrible cell service where I live. This app allows me to use my cell through wifi with great reception.
Conversations Disappear?!
by m3t4l_h34d on 2016/04/17 21:52
Every time I open the app at least one if not all of my message threads are gone?!? Needs a major update!
I've used it often in a pinch.
by Lunchroom2112 on 2016/04/17 05:10
Works great when needed!
Excellent
by Monêt on 2016/04/17 05:09
I've been using this app for just about a year now and all I can say is that I absolutely love it.. Yes at times it may have ads or this recent crash but honestly that is nothing.. I'm using this phone to talk to all of my friends and family for FREE!! It's like I have service, even though I only use it during wifi! This is absolutely one of the best aps that they could have came up with for FREE!!! I love it!!
Why does it keep crashing
by Ndhgd on 2016/04/17 02:56
I hate that
Awesome
by FedEx Buddhists on 2016/04/16 22:08
This is an good app 🤘🏾🤘🏾

by Libiano on 2016/04/16 14:16
As far as I am concerned this the best phone app I have ever seen. Used to have another one for years but this one takes the cake. Thank you
App works great
by Lmedevac on 2016/04/16 02:03
Just had to delete then reload it.
DON'T PAY
by Wolff14309 on 2016/04/16 00:34
PAID THE 1.99 A MONTH NOT TO HAVE ADS...BUT THEY STILL APPEAR!!!!
Is not working the way it used to
by big no sweet on 2016/04/15 21:43
I burnt my number hoping to get a new one. It don't give u a area code from where you chose anyone. Why
Such an amazing app!!
by : Nobody on 2016/04/15 16:10
Usually I don't write reviews for apps. But this one deserves to be well known. (And they didn't even prompt me to write one.) it's a very solid application, and it almost never glitches or crashes. Very reliable quality when calling, you can set up voicemails, and each update keeps making this better and better. I love it. Oh and the ads only pop up after a phone call. Which I am totally okay with. Very unobtrusive. Keep up the good work developers!!
NOT FREE
by Momo8787873232324324 on 2016/04/15 11:54
This app is not free it's asking me to pay for the number when it clearly says "FREE NEW NUMBER FOR YOU IPHONE OR IPOD etc
Never should have gotten the update
by Gigi2139 on 2016/04/15 11:25
Ever since I got the update it's always crashing 😒😒😒😒
Hour
by To many review questions1234 on 2016/04/15 10:54
If I call someone it always cuts me off at one hour and I always have to call back then get it hangs up at one hour again
Free tone update
by laCHlC on 2016/04/15 04:47
Love the whole new interface. I had issues trying to open initially after the update, but as someone suggested which to remove and install and that worked!!
Great!
by Zombilon on 2016/04/15 03:32
Perfect for what I use it for; turning my iPod into an iPhone! Thank you! This is the only usable free app of its kind on the App Store!! {The interface is really nice, okay? And I like how you can change the color of your text bubbles... But the ads... Worth it regardless though lol}

I wish my ipod was new enough to get this app
super frustrating
by 👎👎👎👎👎👎💩 on 2016/04/14 19:55
this update is awful i cant even dial out .. pure bs
Beyond bad.
by PJisOmg on 2016/04/14 14:27
Crash 100% after update. How could this type of quality be able to pass QA? Who would ever allow this to release?
ANNOYING MESS UPS
by M4RY_ on 2016/04/14 13:39
I cannot receive Incoming calls. EVERYTIME I want to text someone the app crashes and I try again then crashes. The latest update didn't do anything to fix any of the other problems. And the quality of our phone calls are worse. When I talk to someone they keep saying I'm breaking up/can't understand me. Fix it and you will get good reviews!!!!! (You can send pics now)👍🏼
Update TERRIBLE
by Stillstanding34 on 2016/04/14 10:45
Every since upgrade app crashes I can't click on No name for conversations past or present! I am a faithful user! I'm getting ready to flip flop on you. Terrible terrible fix app asap
Not working in iPhone
by Dipesh Dahal on 2016/04/14 07:04
I have seen it is not working at the iPhone. Before it used to work but now a days the app is not opening. I think something is wrong with it. Please it needs to be fixed. Dipesh Dahal
A Hiccup But Great Update!
by Jorge creator on 2016/04/14 06:00
As others have commented, there is a consistent crash that occurs when you try to open certain conversations. They did send a message (one that didn't make the app crash thankfully) addressing this issue. A simple reinstall and the app works good as before. The new features make this app more versatile with the ability to share to the app through the share screen. Keep it up, still my favorite text app
Ok..
by Me the someone on 2016/04/14 05:32
This app was great at first until the latest update came out and this app started crashing for some reason as seen for that other people are complaining too. I can't text or call much of my family on this iPod anymore unless there is a better update that prevents this. So I suggest look for another app until the stars go up for this one.
I can't do anything!! 😩
by AWESOME 13254748 on 2016/04/14 04:57
After the new update, it keeps crashing!! Please fix this!
This WAS so great....please fix!
by Asunlaugh on 2016/04/14 04:14
Recent update and app just crashes. Darn! Please make it work again AND bring back the character counter!
best calling and texting app!!
by itzjimmyyy on 2016/04/14 01:49
Keep up the good work guys! love the new update features
For those who crash after update....
by DrFeelGood3992 on 2016/04/14 01:05
Just redownload the app. I had the same thing happen to me so I deleted the app and reinstalled it. Don't bash on the app, I've been able to call my family across the world while deployed overseas, let alone text them. Clear quality for over hours for free as long as you have a solid wifi connection, you just can't beat that.
Awsome app
by Ninjaswordfishie on 2016/04/14 00:52
Great app for texting people on devices that aren't phones

Texting app
by SweetieB4596 on 2016/04/13 18:13
I love this app the only reason it's not getting 5 stars from me is because the calling isn't the best.
Updated trash

App is okay, but crashes when I try to open a certain message. Fix this please
Needs to fix bugs
by Phantom Girl1887 on 2016/04/13 10:31
When I usually logged on it showed me the messages that needed to be read, but with the update u can't see that. When you would try to click on the message to text someone it would close you out of the app. I love this app before they change anything. Now I can't stand it.
great app
by Q8bAss on 2016/04/13 08:47
the app works perfectly and did whats supposed to do no hidden charges true ...thanks
Really
by Lalunafeachelupas on 2016/04/13 06:49
This was a really great app till I recently updated it. It shuts me down when I try to open a conversation when I get a new message it kicks me right out. Please fix Asap!
Awful!
by Thing3 MEE on 2016/04/13 06:11
Every time I try to select a conversation, the app crashes! It won't crash if I do anything else! Please get this bug fixed!
Crashing
by Cricket3cricket on 2016/04/13 05:00
The app opens but crashes as soon as I touch a contacts name. I like this app. Please fix it.
DO NOT UPDATE!
by 2DCombo on 2016/04/13 04:47
Latest update crashes your phone if you select someone in your contacts to call/text. Also crashes if you text said person. Hopefully they can fix this
New update is horrible
by Diego504_DR on 2016/04/13 02:56
Ever since the new version I can't access my messages and the app restarts.
Great?!
by Oacc on 2012/01/28 20:09
This app is great for sending pics, and messages ASSUMING you have wi-fi. If you don't, you cannot send or receive messages at that time. It is great for home use though. I wanted to alert people that you ca delete all messages by going to the column on the left that shows your current conversations. If you slide from left to right on the right side of each bow, it will give you the option to delete which deletes all messages in that conversation. Also the emotion faces do not show up to others as the appear to you, the happy and sad show up as smiles and frowns, but the others show up as cons using meaningless symbols. Over all, I would recommend this app but I do ABSOLUTELY HATE that you can't send or receive mail without wi-fi which makes it hard to keep in touch when I a car or in a building free of wi-fi if you may be trying to check u on plans or something. But, this app is absolutely FREE which is awesome and better than nothing if you don't have an actual phone I would love calling though! Enjoy!!
The only phone & text app you need!
by Angus McDangle on 2016/02/10 19:56
This really works. I ended up with a Florida phone number which made me lol as I'm in Okla. but it works great. As long as you're on wifi you get 200% free calls & texts. For some reason it doesn't like some 800 numbers? 800, 844 ect. But that's bout it! If you live in a metropolitan area most places have free wifi anyway. Just leave you wifi "switch" turned on, if you have an iPhone. I see no reason why to pay $100+ a month for calls and texts when this app is free and it simply works! You can get credit coins, by watching 15 second commercials but I don't know what they are for? Maybe for international calling? I dunno. I've been using this app for 2 weeks now and am very impressed. You can even send & receive pics & have voicemail. A+++++ to whoever designed this app! Woot woot! Thanks for reading my review 🤘 🤓
Deleted my credits and history, changed my number
by Snickersnake on 2015/09/04 20:29
I logged in today and my credits and history were gone and my number had been changed. I had more than 5000 points and today when I logged in I had around 500. (I went through a lot for these points!). Also, a lot of people had my phone number for texting me and now I have to send out an update but the problem is I can't keep Freetone from changing my phone number again. They do state that they will change your number if you don't use the app often enough. But I used it regularly so there was no reason for this. And losing my history is awful because a lot of those numbers were not in my contacts. I've always had trouble with the alerts not working when I get a phone call or text. But I stuck with the app because I had so many credits. I guess there's no point now. And I would have to send out a new contact number to all of my friends and family anyway so I may as well start over with a different app. This app is the same as Textme, FYI.
Solid VOIP, saves you when you have NO CELL SERVICE
by Atazi on 2015/07/06 19:59
I find myself in the time of Groveland in December of last year. I discovered that if you try to make phone calls or use messaging using the standard apps on the iPhone or iPad, your messaging and phone calls will fail as the apps need a brief handshake before they can use the Wi-Fi. I tried several voice over IP applications that do not require the handshakes such as Google voice, Line2, Lingo, Vonage, and various others. I was informed by my receiving parties that the voice clarity, volume, and lossless transmission was significantly better using FreeTone. Also, as the name implies, it is free to use and easy to setup, even if you don't have an IT background. So, before you head off into the boonies, if you anticipate the need or desire to make or receive phone calls or text messages, take the time to sign up with FreeTone. My second choice is Line2 as it handles call screening, handling, and/or forwarding with a very user friendly GUI We just got back from Sea Ranch, near Gualala, and once again FreeTone was the best quality even on the really poorly configured wifi that was being stomped on by a neighbor on the same channel...So add a portable pocket sized wifi access point/router and you will cover all bases! I would give it a 5 star rating except the call handling is inferior to Line2.
Good texting (no pictures tho), calls often garbled,
by Junglecat99 on 2015/04/30 08:00
This is a great ap for texting via wifi and it will easily save you $20 from your phone bill. ($20 for texting, AT&T? Highway robbery!) In fact, if you feel like you need a home phone, its worth trying this before you pay for one, as long as you have a backup for when the calls are scrambled, such as Skype (for use w/ friends and family) or another cell. I keep a cheap prepaid phone on hand for long distance travel and forgo paying for a regular cell phone altogether, since most of the places I go have wifi. It would be optimal if every call was clear but I do it because it saves me on the $100/month extortion for using my smartphone with either AT&T or Verizon (neither of which seem to realize that they are no longer monopolies). The savings are worth having to stand next to my router to get the clearest free/cheap calls w/ this ap.
It works!
by tchaikovsky sucker punch on 2014/11/28 04:55
I haven't had phone service for over 4 years. Too expensive. Free text/call apps which work over wifi have been more than sufficient for the purposes of someone like me, still sporting a 3GS with no intention of upgrading. So far, this app has worked perfectly for both texts and calls, much better than Text+ ever did. Calls are clear and don't lag - in fact it's taking some getting used to, having this work so well after months of Text+'s consistently deteriorating quality of everything. I just hope the quality of this app remains consistent. I rely on this for the rare times I need to talk to people through a plastic and metal box instead of real life. Please don't go the way of Text+ and allow your service to succumb to neglect!
Not getting Picture!!!!
by Brazil going Hexa on 2012/06/11 05:42
Not receiving pictures 😡. Texting works great, but needs picture fixed. Picture is a big deal. Will delete app after a month if not fixed. July 11th 2012 app will be deleted from my phone. Will not recommend to friends. I will call this app "weak sauce" from then on. Two stars cause at least the texting works. since the app waisted my time, I'm going to tell you about my day now. Now I'll tell you about My day. Today i woke up at 11:30 am, it's a Sunday. I ate cereal at noon. My mom yelled at me for not doing choirs. I farted and walked outside. Some drunk guy ran over my bike. I got mad and threw a rock at the neighbors window. I broke the window. Neighbor called the cops. I texted my friend and told him the cops were taking me in. He didn't believe me, I tried using this stupid app to take a picture. But never went through. Now my friend thinks that I am lying. So I called him weak sauce and that was the end of it. Picture was still not received until this day.
Love this app! Best free phone app out there!
by Lulubelleal on 2016/03/18 19:31
Lost my phone service & couldn't afford a new one. Searched all through the Apple Store. This appeared to be an awesome app but I didn't know if there were any hidden tricks they pulled on customers. Best app decision I've downloaded. You know they have the ads. The ads aren't even anything annoying, especially for a free phone & messaging app. No tricks. Totally free calls and messaging both to the user & anyone I contact. Connecting is flawless with much better call sound quality than any other commercial phone services I've ever used. Haven't had a dropped call yet. Best free phone app out there. As long as I have wifi I can call or message any number in the the U.S. I want to. Personal or businesses. Do yourself a big favor & download it.
Almost excellent
by Ly Dong La on 2015/02/24 22:01
This is the best free texting app on the app store that I've used so far, but its ability to send videos is rather unstable. This app struggles to send videos that even iMessage can send without a problem. Also, many of the free credit offers redirect you to malicious domains or scams before taking you to the app or survey you wish to download or fill out. In fact, many of the surveys are scams in the first place and most of them require a lot of personal information. Previous versions of the app allowed users to download selected apps for a decent amount of credits, but that isn't the case anymore. My final issue with the app has to do with how the app sometimes logs me out after I close it, resulting in all of my conversations being deleted. Could this have to do with iOS 8.1.3 compatibility issues?
By far the best texting app around!
by Look like a pro! on 2015/11/25 02:44
Seriously I have tried numerous texting & calling apps but I found home when I found this one! Don't get me wrong, the other similar apps were okay but you were always having to either re-up or switch something. No more NextPlus for me. Nothing personal I just like this app 100% better! It does what it says & if u need help their there for ya. I love that I have a LOCAL NUMBER right off the bat instead of getting sum outta state number that takes MONEY or an act of Congress to change! It's simple it's excellent it's everything u need in an app of this type. If ur thinking of gettin an extra line or number think no more because THIS is the app of apps! U won't be disappointed! Thanks y'all for creating an awesome app! Oh & BTW texting is FREE!
Fairly good
by Jillianlh on 2012/11/17 23:12
Well fist of all it is a way to connect with my friends which I like. But like all apps it has problems like for example it will once in a while exit from the app to the main screen. It is also one of the slower apps. But it is a great thing to have on an iPod touch for fun and free texting. I know that other people may read this and not believe me yet I still have problems with this app. It's not my iPod it the app I know this because I have tried and experimented with it on 4 iPod touches. I also think that it should make it so u don't need wi-fi to text I would be very happy if it would be fixed. Other than that love it. Far better than having to pay on a phone. Also I don't think the adds are too bad just a liitle sacrifice for free texting. This app brings texting to a whole new level. ;)
Not bad, and it works fine.
by Its wrong on 2012/12/15 18:25
I had a text plan in my cell before, and this app works fine just like my cell. Obviously I no longer have the text plan in my cell any more thanks to this app, and the best part is I don't have to pay to use it. There are some draw back for this app. Like other people mention, you don't know whether you receive any text or not until you open this app unlike the iMessage which I know immediately. The other one is there is a thin banner for advertisements. If you pay a small fee, you can eliminate it. Overall, I didn't experience the constant crash or other concerns. I'm thankful to this app and highly recommend it. Only reason that I give the four stars is that there is no alert system when a text is received. Fix it then it's worth five stars.
Great App!
by MistressNoob on 2016/01/30 08:27
I was actually surprised at how great it is! Considering mostly all other apps needs you to have credits and/or have the other person you are calling to have the same app in order to "talk for free". I've been on the phone with my boyfriend for almost 2 hours with no problem. Just need good connection :). No payment of any kind and they give you some free credits for out of country calls too. But I don't call out of country so this is great whereas I don't need the credits , so it is absolutely FREE TALKING!! And texting!! Other apps it would say my messages sent but and the people would get them but when/if they replied, I never received them on my end. But this seems to work well both ways on text messaging!! GREAT APP!!!
Awesome c:
by queento3 on 2013/04/01 22:28
I have a 2nd generation iPod touch and, out of all the texting apps I've used, this one is by far the best. The first texting app i had was called "Textfree". It was OK, I guess, but I had many wrong numbers texting me and none of the themes were good, also, you had to get 3 people to text you in order to make a customized theme. Then, I decided to get "TextNow", which wasn't very good because I was only allowed to open it once. After I closed it, I had to reinstall in so it opened again. I haven't experienced any of those problems, or any others, with TextMe. TextMe also has awesome customizable themes and allows you to choose YOUR OWN icon for yourself, unlike other texting apps. TextMe is a great texting app and I highly recommend it. C: 
Quirky but very functional app
by Paranormalcy on 2013/11/07 16:51
It sends texts timely. I've tested it for several days now. No delays or missed texts so far. When texting an image to a friend on Virgin Mobile, the image came up as a link to a webpage that was hosting the image for 7 days... Odd... but it worked. Not very secure however. You won't get a vibration alert on iphone 5 with iOS 7.03. However you will see a popup notification in the normal way on the password screen the next time you turn your screen on just like a normal text. And so long as you have the app running in the background,(have opened it once since you restarted your phone) you will get a text notification just like normal if you are in another app.
True to advertising! No payment method needed!
by Vinni Badabing on 2015/12/16 14:31
I had literally downloaded vibr purely off of number of downloaded but as soon as I opened it, "hello-- give me your money." Na bro, this app does the job. I made my first wifi call to my doctors office with not interruption or call quality issues. They heard everything I needed and I got my appointment simple as that, loud and clear. Definitely a great app. Using on an iPhone 5s currently. Oh and after that call, I still had the same amount of credits at the top... So I guess that's for international calling? Idk the FAQ sections explains almost 99.9% of the questions you have. Not a fake review, if you think it is I hope I get paid. But it was easy to be in favor of this app, all jokes aside - Vince
Not a bad app.
by jono0594 on 2013/04/18 10:40
I've been using this app for over a year now, and it has always served me well. The only big issue I've had is that it doesn't allow me to send or receive pictures. (Haven't tried it out with the update yet. . . Hopefully it's been fixed). That is what took away one start of my rating. The other star that was taken away was for the problems with the new update. I literally could not even open the app immediately after the update. It didn't even get passed the loading screen and would crash immediately every time I tried opening it. Fortunately, I decided to delete it and redownload it, and it has been working fine since then. Other than that, this app has been a very reliable texting app and, if you can put up with those glitches, I would definitely recommend it.
Just what I was looking for
by amuzichuck on 2011/09/13 23:40
After getting totally fed up yahoo's instant messaging app bug issues - I set out to find an app that would let me send and receive text messages to my friends that either don't have the same app or even a smartphone. I stumbled across this one and decided to give it a try since it was free. I am very happy with what it does and is exactly what I need. I am a little irritated with the ads but they haven't kept me from being able to send a message...yet. I did notice the review about the privacy issues and that concerns me a bit also...so I'll be checking into it. But overall I am very pleased with what I got for free. I hope the issues that the other reviewers are having are fixed as well because it is a pretty cool little app.
Love it!
by Pumpkin Babi on 2014/12/28 20:43
It's awesome! All of the other free text and call apps are scams and have so many fees and in app purchases:( but this is so dependent! If u google this app it says the numbers are temporary. I have found out that that's only if they don't have enough phone numbers to give to people but I have had this app for a little over a year now and I still have my number! I can text my friend fast and easy from a different state! Calling is okay. The reception is kinda not so good, but I found the key! Just turn your volume all the way up and turn on speaker! I have an iPod touch 7th generation and it comes with the message app but it doesn't work very well at all. Thank you so much free tone!
Amazing and a life saver
by P.funk_productions on 2015/01/11 19:44
I'm just starting out in the hair industry so while I'm building clientele I often become hesitant with giving out my number but with this app new clients can reach me directly from my main line of communication which is my cell phone. The app is very easy to navigate and if for some reason I am not around wifi clients still have the option of leaving me a voicemail which is easily retrieved once I connect back to wifi. Love it and recommend it for all and any. The only thing I would recommend adding is a blocked caller list that's it but that's also what decline is for. It keeps freezing though and getting on my nerves
The thing is
by SawgginIs4Lozers on 2012/05/29 00:50
Text me is a wonderful app but and some may say you have to have wifi and there is adds at the bottom of the screen there is a way to fix that if you have wifi at home you don't have to run up your cell phone bill only if you are out on the go if your not you are fine and second you can simply remove adds by clicking on the shopping cart at the top right of the screen and selecting the remove adds for a month for .99 cents or if you are planning on using TextMe for more than a year you can simply just click the remove adds for a year for only 4.99. I hope my advice can help.
Meh...
by Bradytwin1 on 2015/01/03 00:51
Okay, I admit, at first, this app was amazing. It got me my credits for minutes when I did the tasks and all of that, but now... It barely works. It's claiming the function for getting free credits is "no longer available," and I only get the credits I've so called "earned" 60% of the time. They've removed app downloads for possible ways of getting free apps, and the "tasks" that need to be done in the "Earn free credits" option NEVER work. They're usually about submitting valid contact information so you can win a free gulf card, and the task usually leads you to some stupid survey that doesn't give you the credits either. So in other words, it's EXTREMELY hard to obtain credits. But this app is the only way I've been able to contact a long distance friend of mine. That's the only reason I gave this App an extra star...
LOVE THIS APP
by Mccoy1515 on 2015/09/12 04:23
I have tried several different apps for "free texting" and "free calling" but there was always issues with calls getting dropped or not being able to hear the other person or text not going through in the right order if they even went through at all!! This is by far the best!!! The call quality is amazing we can hear each other as good as if we were in the same room!!! My text actually come through in the order they were sent or received!! This is by far the best app I ever downloaded!!! I will never have to try another one!! Thank u so much!!! Keep up the amazing work!!!
Liked it until the update
by DiDeTu on 2016/03/20 13:08
UPDATE: 4 stars: They DID fix my problem with the expiration date. Thank you! The application is my favorite because of the FREE calls/texts in USA and Canada, there is NO application that matches that. Thanks again! The latest update messed up the expiration date of my number and also their customer service. Send them a request to help you with a problem, and you'll most likely be ignored. I feel like they either don't care anymore about their customers, or they have so many requests, that they can't keep up with answering them. In February, before the update, I paid to keep my number for a year. The expiration date was Feb 21st, 2017. The update changed it to April 17, 2016. I sent them a few emails about the issue, and so far I only received an answer saying the problem was fixed, which is wrong. The expiration date is still Apr 2016. Sorry guys, you helped me really well in the past (I'm talking about last year, before the update), you were very fast in responding to requests and fixing the problems, but everything seems to be wrong now.
Phone without a phone
by One Kadiddlehopper on 2016/01/31 21:36
This app is awesome. I was able to text and call with my wifi network, and have someone call me right back. Wow. Without a phone! To make this even more impressive, I killed the app and put the iPod Touch in standby mode (black screen) and had someone call me. It worked! The device rang and I was able to answer the call. The only down side is that that action took a few seconds and the caller was getting frustrated thinking something was wrong. But with patience you can train your contacts to wait a few seconds. I wonder how long I get to keep the assigned number?
Just What I Needed!
by LetsTanInJapan on 2011/10/17 15:29
If you're just looking for the perfect texting app that's free, reliable, & incredibly easy to use, look no further. Because Text Me is exactly everything you need.... And more. I had been searching for a free reliable texting app; one that actually had a single number to contact, and didn't send multiple texts to people I was talking to with all that junk (MSG: & FROM: stuff) Thats the great thing about this app. Its fun, easy to use, and you don't have to confuse the bejesus out of your friends when you try to text them multiple times a day! So thank you so much Text Me, you certainly answered my wish.
Love how I am using an apple product and it is letting me text other non apple users!
by Gabrielle949 on 2013/01/04 05:37
I recently had my iPhone stolen, luckily with iCloud I still have my contacts linked to my iPad. The thing I love about this app is it is very easy to use, the tone when you get a text isn't obnoxious and you can text your friends with all different phones. It would be really nice if you could change the signature to automatically say something different or change the random phone number that shows up when you text someone, but the awesome thing is it works! I think everyone will enjoy this!
I love love love love this app.... But I have an issue.
by Pajyeeb on 2016/04/04 03:09
This app is the best app I had ever had! I've been using it for almost a year I believe, and it is the best. I get random phone calls here and there but it doesn't bother me as much. My only problem is I got a new phone and I had downloaded this app. But all my recent messages had been deleted. I was wondering if you can make the app so that I can sign back in to the old messages that I used to have it also helps me put in contact numbers. Thanks! I love the app very much and I would recommend it to users. It only needs wifi and a working device which is great.
An texting app that is awesome:)
by Samantha Rundberg on 2012/04/02 03:27
All you need is wi-fi then your already to text whoever you want in your contacts! I love it! Cuz whenever i get home from school i prank text people hehe shh… but other then that when I'm grounded from my phone i use this app to text my friends and i love it. It works amazingly. Im glad my friend told me about it and also i can send pictures! I would recommend if you don't have a phone but you have a iPod to get this app so you can text your friends! :) it is kinda slow u have to refresh it like once in a while but it still sends and recieves messages and i like it for that! :)
Does What It Says!
by redrose_129 on 2014/09/01 11:49
I got this app so my daughter would be able to text me without having a phone. And by the number of texts she sends me, I'd say it's working quite well! I've recommended it to my nieces and nephews as an alternative to buying a phone for them! The only annoying thing is unless the person you're texting is also a Textme user, although you can link them with your contacts, some of their names will not be listed on your recent texts...it'll show a phone number. And if you don't have someone's phone number memorized, you will have to open any text without a name and review the content to determine that person's identity.
Pretty Good, One complaint.
by AnimeFrantic347 on 2013/01/19 23:01
Well, I personally like this application alot. It works well, only problem is that you can't change the background colors, or edit it in anyway, I would get Text Me 2 but I have one of the older versions of iPod models and I don't really want to upgrade models because the new one is 299+ dollars, and Unless it is an iPhone i'm not paying that much. I would suggest that they upgrade this version of text me, to nothing over iOS 4.0 for those of us who have older iPod models can freely use this application and personalize it to our tastes. Other than that, it's a pretty good application. :)
Won't send texts to certain people
by Giminigrl on 2012/06/23 13:05
I tried sending a text to one of my friends who's moving across the country to Texas soon and even though my screen say it sent she said she never got it. I tried two of her numbers and she still didn't get it. So I gave her my number and I got her text. It doesn't make sentce. And I just made a guy friend and he gave his number to text. I texted him yesterday and he never texted back. If he doesn't text back untill July I'm assuming the same thing is happining with him. So this really needs fixing because it's very important for me to stay in touch with my friends. Especially if I won't see them again. Please fix it!
Text me

I really like the Textme app, I am able to keep my messages a secret and the app is a lot faster then the other texting apps I have used. The Textme app doesn't have very many ringtones though, if it had more ringtones to choose from that were free it would make me rate the Textme app a 4 out of 5, but for now I will have to give a 3. I am also giving the Textme app a 3 because every time I go to change my nickname on the app it changes my entire number and then I have to spend already needed time sending people my new number. Overall this is the best texting app I have ever used and hopefully my complaints about the app are fixed soon
Outstanding.

Update: Excellent app, well done and robust, but the ad placement drives me too crazy. I am going back to Gvoice and apps. If you don't mind the ads or paying a little for temp ad-free time, you will not be disappointed. Can't say enough good about it. Original: Before finding this newer version of the TextMe app, I went through a lot of hassle and apps --along with setting up a Gvoice account -- to have the same service and more with this single app. The real phone number and voice mail are premium features; location, pics and recordings are great features. It is all free. Amazing.
Best Texting App:)
by samantha_darling on 2013/04/02 20:30
This app is awesome, I can send my pictures and receive pictures! The themes are awesome and if you don't like them you can make your own! This app isn't slow and there are not a lot of ads, but you can take then off for a whole month for only .99! And 4.99 for a year, which is a good deal:) You get your own private number and you can text anybody with any type of phone or texting app! I haven't had any problems with this app at all, but it says that the Text Me 2 is better. I am going to stick with this one though because its awesome:)
Exceptional!!
by LordoftheWind on 2015/12/19 15:58
This app does exactly as advertised and works really well. There are ads but they don't get in the way at all like apps I've previously used. I can text people with absolutely no problems and the call quality is better than google voice which is what I used before this to call people. The problem with google voice is that you can only call them, they can't call you. With this app, I don't have that problem!! Worth the download to try it, you won't regret it. (Will edit my review is I experience any problems worth noting.)
TextMe!
by KnotRedee on 2013/02/10 21:24
Unlike a cell phone, your iPad does not have a working phone number assigned to it. So unfortunately, it is limited to iMessaging other Apple devices only. "TextMe" corrects this limitation by actually providing you with a new and unique phone number! Once it is assigned, you and your friends can update your contacts and start using your new iPad phone number. Your iPad will able send and receive texts to and from a non-iPhone just as if it were! "TextMe" was easy to set-up and is almost invisible in use. This is a great app and very worthy of all five stars!

Just updated the May 1, 2013 change. What the hell did you do to this program? The contact list that normally appears on the left is now totally black. The area showing the conversations is only for the person that I contacted last, and there is nothing to press on that would bring up my other contacts. There is a phone icon on upper right, but I would never use this to make a phone call, since I am practically deaf. There are no other icons to press on to help me that I can see. I use my iPad to contact a number of people, including the hospice nurses that take care of my husband. Because I cannot use a regular phone, and I live in a rural area where text phones do not work 99% of the time, this is a very important means of communication for me. PLEASE TELL ME THERE IS ANOTHER FIX ON THE WAY.
Awesome.. thanks Freetone!
by Anonymouse895123 on 2015/01/20 22:03
My landline recently broke and I did not want to pay more money to have a technician come to diagnose it, since we hardly use it. Instead, I just cancelled it altogether to save myself 30 dollars a month. Freetone now helps me make calls within the U.S. Via the Internet when I need to. So far it has worked flawlessly and is easy to use. In fact I used it to make the 800 number call to my landline phone service company to cancel... Hehehehe... The call was pretty clear on my end and sounded just like a regular landline or cell phone! Thanks a bunch Freetone! <3
Great APP! But...
by Andy152948 on 2015/02/11 12:33
This is a great app because u get a number, and u can easily hand it out. You can also call, and text the us for free. So why did u give it three stars? One is because if you use this app while aboard. You have to earn credits to talk to people in the country your in. BUT the main thing is calling. You need an amazing internet Connection to call. If your internet ON WIFI is even a little bit slow you. You while get problems when calling. That being said, just experiment with different places. N eventually you will find a place where you can call! Hope this helps. I would download this app, all others want to charge u to matter who u call.
Good with a fatal flaw
by eltylxeno on 2016/04/21 04:28
I've been using this app as my main communication method for one specific friend, and I've had it for about nine months. With the old version, I never had a problem. However, with the rework that launched a while back, I started getting extreme lag whenever I opened my main conversation. Unresponsive for upwards of 15 seconds, very slow after that. I realized recently that this is because every text I have ever sent to this person has been stored, and is being loaded whenever I open that conversation. The old version used to have a system where you could "Load More" messages as you scrolled up. Please add that feature back...
Just a few problems
by StarlightDarling on 2014/06/07 17:56
I love this app but there a few problems. 1. It randomly deletes parts of my conversations (I'm assuming it can only store so many then deletes em) 2. I won't get a call unless the app is open and my phone is unlocked. Otherwise I get a missed call notification. 3. When sending or receiving a call either I can't hear them or they can't hear me. Yup, that's about it. Other than those I love that you can customize the text bubbles and the background be changed to a pic you have in your phone :) I love hate this app but other apps have more problems. This is the bast one I've used :)
Overall good but some minorities
by Spartacubbinx on 2012/03/17 03:13
The app itself is overall very well put together and good, it works very nicely and is great to use. The defects are that at times it locks up and you cant delete stuff, you need to update the app please. A few changes u could make are you could let people decorate each person they text differently like for example say im texting bob and sarah and i wanna know when bob texts not sarah well with u being able to use only one sound i wont know when bob texts me unless i continuously look, i wanna be to know "oh thats bob's tone he texted me!". I know im only 16 but i really wanna help this app go far thank you. And i hope you take my ideas into consideration.
Seems Great So far!
by John and Deb on 2014/12/30 19:05
I just switched from text me (they told me they were switching to Free Tone & I had to) & all seems great with this app. As long as I use it through my wifi at home or another wifi my calls are free! Its kind of confusing though. When calling friends it still shoes my same # I've had for years from text me, but when they send me texts it goes to my old text me app? But my calls seem free now like they said they would be & as always texts are free. So when I'm home I Always use this app! Great job guys keep it the same!

TextMe is definitely useful, for me, as I do NOT have a smart phone. Rather, I have a DUMB phone, that does all that I need, with respect to voice communications. I also have an iPod (NOT an iPhone) which I have been using as a PDA (after my computer died and I was no longer able to use my Palm PDA, due to incompatibilities with the current OS. Using TextMe, I'm able to send SMS messages to people who do NOT have an Apple device. In other words, TextMe allows me to do text messaging, as if I had a smart phone. I'm also able to do video chats and voice chats. Very helpful. The ads are annoying, but I feel that they're worth it....
Best voice app ever
by 983672 on 2015/10/10 07:08
I love this app. I use it on my iPhone 5c which has no service and just use a hotspot I have and wifi and work and home. Voice quality is awesome. It's actually better then my other phone I have which has a regular cell plan. It's so easy to use. It's nice to have a second phone line without having another bill. I recommend this app to anyone that is thinking of trying it. Customer service is awesome as well. They helped me change my number when it gave me a non local number. They responded in a timely fashion.
I Love This App!
by Chelphille on 2014/12/22 02:18
Considering that I've used TextMe for years, and that they're now switching, I know that this app is basically the same, and just as good. Considering that I don't have a job yet, it's a great way to call my family and friends on my iPod, and when having limited texting it works great! I would highly suggest this app to those who can't afford a phone, or simply just want it to talk with friends! The interface is great for even kids to use, and I've used it for such a long time and I love that it continues to stay amazing!
Nice for free, has glitches
by sonic_sanity on 2015/02/27 22:49
I use this app mainly to text from my iPod touch (I have an older flip phone w/out keyboard). I tried to send a picture along w/ voice message and the photo vanished - not cool. It's easy to connect your contacts, create a personal outgoing message and other settings. Plus it will store incoming and outgoing messages / calls. You can earn or buy credits to make international calls. So for a free phone # (iFaux) I & free text it's pretty nice. Yes, there are ads always present - but not so intrusive or too disruptive. Free unlimited national phone calls & text (w/Wi-Fi) from an iPod is actually pretty sweet.
Really amazing app
by Brooke Approves on 2012/08/09 23:12
This app is amazing because it is very fast and easy to use and set up. It's just like a phone but beter because you don't have to pay money. It works for texting people with the same app a mobile phone and others with a different app can still receive messages . Plus you can even call landlines share videos and send pictures. All my friends use it. I advise you to get this app it's even beter than a cell phone. I garentee you'll fall in love with it and won't wanna stop texting. It's really that great!!!
