by brtygddtg on 2019/11/08 15:44
I’ve used this for over a year now. No longer texts groups, takes ten minutes to load contacts, drops calls, messages fail constantly, and app crashes. Terrible!
It’s so nice having my own private line. I call it “ the Batphone” I love the service

by Onio1 on 2019/11/04 15:42
I would rate this better, but it’s a good app overall but very frustrating an it cashes A lot! It doesn’t load messages, it split messages up. Sometime it won’t connect to the Internet! When you get off the app an come back to it more problems come. Smh please fix something in the new update because now this app might just get uninstalled and replaced with something less stressful.
What I think from Talkatone?
by A Crs on 2019/11/03 22:12
Talkatone is a great app!!! It turns your iPad into a 📱 phone, I wish that you were able to FaceTime. You can still use your iPad to text and Call and FaceTime with an eMail, but you can only do that with people that have iPhones . With Talkatone you can text people with Samsung’s and androids.
Love love love love this app but the only issue is is that you can’t call so people

Horrible
by Cierra Goin on 2019/10/28 04:40
It started duplicating messages on people I was textings phones it was duplicating the messages I sent and the messages that they replied with. Wouldn’t recommend for anyone!!
It’s not the best.

Picture sending
by Iamgorgouz on 2019/10/27 07:37
When I send a picture to a real phone number they only get a link to view it from a browser, without data it won't open. Can't I send a picture directly? And also I am not able to sign out of the app on my iPhone when I want to.
Ok

This app is adequate for making calls but receiving calls is another matter now incoming call notification has stopped working even when you make a call it takes at least 5 minutes for the call to reach its destination this service is not reliable at all.
It’s OK but if he work
by bfaslim on 2019/10/25 14:55
When I’m not in a good area I can’t get calls at all
Too buggy
by wifi gamer on 2019/10/25 02:58
Not really compatible with iPhone 6s Messages tend to disappear whenever you open the app or whenever you try to text someone back. Contacts seem to disappear or are not found sometimes whenever you are trying to call someone or text someone from your contacts list. WiFi signal is great so it’s not the WiFi. Just a buggy app that needs some serious work done to it.
Excellent
by Vincent H.W on 2019/10/24 17:59
in fact,this app may be the best,but some ads make me bad. Compare with the same function apps,talkatone really runs best.
Notifications
by Big Hefe Q on 2019/10/24 11:58
It’s a great app and all but I do not like how if I’m not using notifications for the app that it vibrates rapidly in background without a Trace

Absolutely everything I thought it was......I love it..... works exactly like when I paid for service, and sync my contacts....couldn’t ask for more!
Very easy to use and free
by Aguatec on 2019/10/18 23:23
Following download, just a couple of steps and off you go! Easy to test. Here is what I did. I texted my cell phone from the app; then I reply from my cell phone and it worked seamlessly! Best part, I just needed a free app with a dedicated phone number which I could keep to get text messages from my bank and va hospital while I was out of the country and the regular cell phone was out of service. Try it, what you gotta loose? Worked instantly and flawlessly...

Crap sound
by Flames1379 on 2019/10/17 17:27
I haven’t been able to use the app as a burner phone because I can never hear the sounds in time to actually answer the phone! Out of sheer frustration I did all that the “support” advised: made sure my phone’s setting allowed the app full access, even have the app’s volume at max, deleted and reinstalled app, reset my phone, etc. And still the sound is absolute crap when both the phone and app are at max volume! One would think that since the developers have known this to be a problem for YEARS that it would have been properly addressed and resolved by now.

by 16BitJustin on 2019/10/08 22:39
It never notifies me when I get a message, or phone call, I’ve done all the troubleshooting steps that the website provided, still nothing. I pay for this app, what is the point if it’s not going to let me know when someone is calling or texting? You guys claim that it’s been fixed and then we have to do this and that and every other troubleshooting process. Half of the time when I’m on the phone I can’t hear the other person because they’re going in and out and the phone audio is breaking up. Thanks for nothing I will not be paying for this app anymore.
Works great

by Maddy12356790076434 on 2019/10/07 21:44
This app has served its purpose overall. I wish the volume was a little better and I wish you didn’t have to put it on speaker to hear when you’re on the phone. I wish the voicemail volume didn’t come out of the loud speaker. I wish that contacts would not auto save to my contact book. I wish the cell service would work a bit better. I can only hear people when on WiFi as I am using this as a work number rather than for overseas purposes.

If you ever try to uninstall this app. It will not uninstall completely. And it will reappear everytime you cut your phone on. It will cripple your device if you try to uninstall. Do not use this app unless you want to get rid of your device, or you want to throw money away at a tech doctor.

I would give it five stars but.....
by Cubanito1971 on 2018/09/24 02:26
So this app has worked perfect for me while I’m living in Japan. I get calls from the states I can text everything goes through quickly I’m not sure why everyone else is complaining about lag I don’t experience any of it. I do however experience a very very annoying treat and I’m not sure if Talkatone is responsible for it or not. But I’m gonna blame them anyway because it is their app. Whenever I am texting someone my phone opens the App Store. Even if I close it it really opens it and it takes me to some dating site or something weird sometimes it says I’m in the wrong App Store. Which I assume means that I’m trying to get the American app Stor when I’m really in Japan not sure what that’s all about but even if I close out talk atone and reopen it and go back to texting it’s only a matter of seconds before the App Store starts opening up. And then it’s frustration time because you have to close both applications the App Store and Talkatone and then re-launch Talkatone to continue were you were texting only for a few minutes later to start the process all over again. Talk atone if you are listening to this review I love you guys I can even send you video of what I’m experiencing but something needs to be done because this is crap. Otherwise I am extremely happy I’ve even thought about buying the package to disable ads and my only worry is that it would not fix the App Store opening up.

by Monkey facelynn on 2019/02/13 00:07
I’ve had this app for 2 years.. I would have given it 5 stars because it worked great! In the last 2 weeks.. all calls go directly to voicemail.. I have emailed support at least 5 times and still no answer ( I mean they don’t even respond)!!!!!!!! In the past you could delete the app and reinstall it.. and nothing was lost... not this time!!!! I delete it and reinstalled it and everything I had on there is gone!!!!! Some of this was special stuff... plus numbers I now can’t get back... I’m so disappointed!!! Especially in the fact that support doesn’t answer!!! And I still can’t get calls or even know I have a call.. it doesn’t ring... but goes directly to voicemail! And I only find out I have a call from looking at my emails! If support answers and fixes this problem I will change this back to 5 stars.. because it always worked in the past!!! And if there was a problem support contacted me right away.... not this time.. I’m devastated that I lost messages and call logs.. from someone special!!!!
garbage (and that's being kind)
by gothdaddy on 2018/07/29 23:07
if you enjoy endless frustration, go ahead and get this awful app... if you need to get a text reliably through, don't bank on this at all... EVERYthing i ask it to do results in a huge delay of 40 seconds to a minute... not kidding at all... EVERY...thing! waiting for conversations to load takes forever! calling up the text box takes forever! seeing actual contact names instead of their numbers takes forever! even just trying to complete a text to someone TAKES FOREVER because of hiccups and long delays!! i have to pretty much count on a five minute ordeal just to send a simple text to someone, EVERY time! my god, even the ads don't fit the spaces provided for them, ads from local business here... i bet they don't even know what they're getting for their advertising dollars... even aesthetically this app is awful... COULD THIS APP GET ANY WORSE!? (sadly, probably)... oh! a new update! hopefully they've addressed the delay issue! .....oh, no, no they haven't.... i just sent a text that took a minute and 15 seconds to go through... everything still takes a millennium... the app won't even rotate from portrait to landscape in less than 45 seconds! IT CAN'T EVEN DO THAT REASONABLY QUICKLY!! what in the living hell is the problem!? PLEASE sell this app to a developer who cares.... PLEASE!!
WORKS WELL ESPECIALLY FOR FREE
by SusieQ 71561 on 2018/10/15 21:02
My son found this app for my granddaughter who is 7 so she is able to use her “new cell phone.” It’s actually an older phone that my son gave to her to use with select people and there is no charge like you would have if you needed to activate and buy minutes or a phone calling card. He pre-programmed the numbers she is allowed to call and now that her and I and a few of her friends from school and in another state that they used to live in can have phone conversations for as long as we want as often as we want we are all happy. I found the app very easy to use and have not had any issue thus far. Neither has my granddaughter. It also works on my tablet so that we can text if wanted but she is only starting to write sentences and its just easier for her to talk. She does get a kick out of this as do I. Thank you for keeping it free.
Excellent 100% FREE calling & texting
by NUN-Yabizness on 2018/08/19 10:46
There are reviews on here that claim things like “it takes forever to send messages” or, “calls don’t work” or, “app takes forever to load” BUT, I personally have used this app and tried others that CLAIM to be free but then want to charge after the “free credits” are used - I have had occasional issues with the app “freezing” and sometimes the sound quality on calls could be better but, after restarting it, it works flawlessly and reliably and, it really IS 100% FREE ! Ok, so there are ads ... it’s a FREE calling & messaging app and, if the tiny, unobtrusive ads at the top or bottom of the window bother you, then pay to have them removed because NO app is going to give 100% truly free calling and messaging without ads. I only ding Talkatone one star for the occasional hiccups that I already mentioned but, overall it is a very good app that I use every day. Thanks and keep up the good work !
Giving it four stars because of the quality.
by teiiemwhmwuku on 2019/03/09 04:00
Overall, this app is pretty cool. You can make unlimited calls in the US and Canada. Most apps would make you buy credits for all calls. Since I have no use for the international calling subscriptions for credit I don’t need to buy them. But the reason my review is 4 stars is the quality. I keep hearing static and some weird long beep and sometimes the caller on the other end sounds like they have helium in their voice. If you could improve the quality of calling, I would give it five stars. And also when I am receiving an incoming call and the app is not open, I click on the notification that I receive and it doesn’t answer the call. I have to call the other person back. Improve the quality and fix the incoming call issue and it’s five stars.
Many Problems
by Babynannycake on 2019/07/13 23:13
This app is amazing i would say but i have a lot of problems and it is bothering me. So when I first got it, the app was amazing and it was fun I would say but when i kept using it, a lot of strangers would always text me and say “hey I’m a horny sexy girl looking for sex and I’m single” or “stop calling me man your soo Gay” But I don’t know how people get my number and it’s angry and kept on bothering me and told them to stop and it never ended it. I am very angry but so far, it was a OK app but I have a lot of glitches and every time my mom calls me, it would say “unlock pin” then I’m done but I call them but it then it shows me that I accept the call or decline and when I am done it shows me calling them with was angry and annoying but I would say that I would love that if you update it so people won’t automatically text or call you and I have been getting robot calls but I was aloud to block them so I was happy about that. Thank you for reading this.
Does the job
by zlilbit on 2019/09/25 01:30
Talkatone is a great option for a second line. I've used the free version for about a year and have gone through a couple of phone numbers without any issues. I've been able to talk (within USA), text and send pictures with no issues and all for free. I only use talkatone for selling stuff online and other occasional social events. As long, as the former owner of the phone number didn't post that number online or they owe money to creditors, the talkatone number doesn't get bot or phishing calls. That can happen with any number. I'm just having a little trouble finding the voicemail messages. I forgot where to retrieve the voicemails. Keep up the good work. Update: voice mail appeared again after reinitiated the app. I didn't reinstall but I enabled background refresh and it did the job.
This App Works So Well
by Misery Ave on 2019/02/27 17:16
So as a 15 year old with a small family and low income my mother doesn’t make much money she could only afford to pay for service for one phone and I couldn’t call or text people so I went on a hunt to find a legit app that would let me talk and text for free it was hard but I came across talkatone this app is AMAZING not even joking I can now call my mother and text her or anyone else FOR FREE this app works and is definitely work downloading no free trials needed the only problem is that we can have ringtones from songs in our Apple Music section but instead we have premaid ringtones that would be nice to have custom ringtones if possible but otherwise this app works very very well and I do recommend downloading this app if you can afford service to call chat or text people I give it a 5 stars
Never lets you answer calls
by judesamson79 on 2019/03/19 23:58
Calling out can be spotty - often it will seem to connect but there’s no sound so you have to disconnect and call right back. Other times you could be mid-call and all of a sudden it gets very staticky. Doesn’t matter if it’s WiFi or 3g or where you are located. Signal doesn’t improve. If you hang up and call back suddenly it’s clear again. MASSIVE battery hog. A few programs can be battery hogs but this one will drain you after only a few mins on a call. It’s best to be plugged in or near a plug especially if you plan to talk more than 15 mins. The BIGGEST issue is I cannot get it to let me accept any calls. Most of the time I get a quick chirp letting me know I just missed a call even though it wasn’t ringing. Other times it sends the caller straight to voicemail and I only know about it because there’s a missed call/voicemail notification. On the rarest of occasions where it actually rings it still doesn’t actually connect you. When you click to connect it’s just dead silence even though the phone counter is ticking as if the call is connected. Most of the time I just disconnect and try calling the person back. Anytime I give out the number i tell people to just email me or leave a message so I can call them back since this app never works. It worked not horribly initially so I’ve started to establish it as a steady number but it’s gone so down the drain it’s barely functioning anymore.
I never write reviews for apps...buuuut
by xoxoMommaBearxoxo on 2018/12/18 13:18
I never write reviews for apps, but this app is wonderful. It does drain the battery a bit; but the reason it does that is because it’s constantly running in the background. I need an app that acts like a genuine phone. That means anyone can call me...anytime! The other apps shut down entirely after a period of time. That means missed calls, missed texts and well.. just not what I’m looking for. This app also sends full photos (MMS) texts and does not attach the application logo or link. The recipient receives typical messages without advertisements! Other apps don’t even let the recipient open photos unless they download their texting app! This one works like a regular cellular service, which no others seem to. Love it!
Free candy!
by moukeefe on 2019/08/22 12:03
Free candy, yeah, nothing comes for free. I was impressed at first. My own private phone number, texting, yada yada. And just when people I’m close to get used to my private number an add pops up from the developer saying I must agree to their policies of information sharing before I can use the app again. So I go and read the policy. Are you F@$#ing kidding me? This policy is worse than those I see on windows apps disclaimers. It boils down to, we demand the right to assume your identity. And if you say, “yeah, whatever” then they get total access to your texts, photos, phone calls, messages, videos, and everything else on your device. And they will sell that to whoever’s walking by with a buck. Or hand it over to the authorities should there be something on your device they find suspicious. “Dude, that party last night was bomb”. Clearly a terrorist, arrest him. Nice try Mr. Trumphole. I bet he was like, you must call it “trumpatone”! Anyway. I can’t use it anymore because I don’t like my info being out there like that. You decide but please read that policy first.
Decent
by jedimaster7687 on 2018/06/01 16:26
This app does everything that a normal Smartphone would, but I only have one problem with it. The problem is that in order to receive calls, you have to have the app open in the background, and calls appear in a notification at the top of the screen, making it so that if you are in another app, you have to quit whatever you were doing, and rush to the app to answer the call. I recall missing a call at least once, and today my Mom called me, and sense I swiped away all my apps, and couldn’t answer the call. She had to call a different number, and let me know that it didn’t work. That really frustrates me, but other than that, the app works just fine. PLEASE fix this problem, and other apps like Skype or FaceTime just interrupt what your doing, which in my option I like a LOT better than missing the call every time.
1.5 stars updated review
by alexknowsall on 2018/01/14 06:21
I planned to write here in a week but its been something like a month. After a period of time suddenly the app stops notifying when messages come in. Also the app progressively got less consistent with message delivery as time has passed. Day 1 review: "I deleted this before because it was to glitchy I decided to give the app another try today, so far so good. There have been two crashes already today but Nice layout everything has been sent and received quickly, no other glitches or obtrusive adds, service is actually free :)) all good so far. Lost half a star cuz two crashes in less than a day and you lost one full star because the "do not disturb" setting on my iphone does not impact your app. Not sure if that last one is within the devs power but i feel like it aught to be, perhaps i just didnt see a do not disturb within the app or have some other setting arri, i will update review in a week or two after i have used it more."
Good but getting worse for reliability
by NitroBiz on 2018/12/31 18:57
I've been using Talkatone for years now. I ported over my At&t number to Google Voice so I could retain my US number as I moved to Brazil. As I began to use Talkatone I was amazed by the reliability at placing and receiving calls along with receiving and sending SMS messages to my friends and family back home. Several updates later it seems as though the reliability has gotten worse with every update. I used to get an immediate notice when I received a call or SMS, but now it seems as though I never do. I've tried tinkering with the settings but nothing works. I still recommend it but wish they would figure out the notification reliability problem.
Save your $$$ for soda and not this app!
by Trust ME! I Know on 2019/04/12 22:19
Well sad to say in Theory it’s a 5 stars app! Works great to test it Until you pay the $3.99 for better VM and $1.99 to remove ads. It worked perfect for a day and once I decided I would keep the app and pay up it went down hill from there. Looking back I should have paid someone $5.00 to just kick me in the nuts and call it a day! It would have been less painful. The phone rings one time and that’s it. You have no idea people are calling you. Unless your phone screen is on 24/7 a call will not show up. Text messages are 50/50 that you receive. I’m a tech guy and tried every single notification option on my IPhone and on the app and ALL calls are missed. Nothing worked! Tried to email tech support on the app! MIA for days no response at all. I have cancelled the subscription and gone back to Google that is 100% free and reliable for a work line. I’m out $6.49 and 2 days of aggravation! Trust me Keep your $$$
Big fat zero
by jefa5530 on 2019/01/08 11:25
This is an absolute worst app I ever had to deal with. First of all it’s only good for text messaging really because when’re someone tries to call you your phone simply does not ring. I tried everything. It just doesn’t ring. And yes I even picked out a ring melody out of offered ones. Second of all, it takes forever for the app to warm up once u open it. Third, if you are a fast texted/typed, this app is not got you as your fingers will moving 10 times faster then this app will respond , it won’t even comprehend the words you are typing. I It freezes. Half the times it is very selective with what msg it will send and which ones it would not. Sometimes it shows it send, but all it looks like on ur screen is just s small cloud with three dots, there’s no text. As I come to find out that means that text didn’t go through. I can keep going. Don’t use this app. It’s the worst of the worst. Real shame on its creator or developer, such shame.
Best Free Call and Text App
by Kelmin X on 2018/09/21 23:56
I had my phone shut off but still needed to make calls and text. I’ve used this app in the past and it was always useful. But now that I haven’t had a phone all year this has helped me with people who don’t have iMessage. I recommend it to anyone. Is it perfect, no, but it has kept me going without any teal issues. I once paid for the add removal, but it made no difference so I don’t recommend paying for that. I talk to my mom for hours and don’t drop calls. There are no credits to buy or videos you have to watch this is the best app for calling and texting.
Started at a 5 and now we’re here.
by ._. & :/ & :] on 2019/04/17 00:21
At first this app worked wonderfully. I talked to one person, and it worked perfectly fine. But, after about a month and a half of using the app, it started to glitch. Where i could only see the other person’s side of the conversation when i opened the app. But, closing the app and then opening it fixed the problem. Now, whenever I try and do that, the app either crashes, or shows that I have 800 different threads with the person i’m talking to. And that just means more lag and more crashing. It takes me 10-15 minutes of repetitively closing and opening my app (at some points completely soft resetting my phone multiple times) to finally get it to work properly. And that properly working takes a good hour before it crashes again. Mini complaints is that sometimes the app doesn’t give me the notification that i got a text. it also heats my phone to the point of where it scares me to touch it. An edit to this post: When the update happened, the app began to work just as fine as it did when i first got it. But, again, slowly over time it started to lag or crash. Then finally, it’s gone back to the 10-15 minute opening closing. It’s even to gotten where I can’t text and it slowly follows my movement to where the text takes 5 minutes to register what I typed.
DO NOT USE. Terrible app, terrible service
by JaelValentine on 2018/12/16 13:02
UPDATE: Months after reaching out to Talkatone Support, nothing has been done to address my problems. And there are more problems now! The app still doesn’t ring when calls come in. But now it also confuses text messages in group chats, sends texts only on occasion, and sends some calls to the wrong numbers! And you can bet Support doesn’t care, not even for a paying customer. Give this app a hard pass! There are plenty of other ones to try, where they’re more likely to treat you like a (paying) human being! OLD REVIEW: This app does not ring when it receives phone calls! It just makes a loud beep when the caller is leaving a voicemail. This costs me valuable work! I pay $1.99 a month for this app. The least it could do is tell me when I’m getting a phone call! Instead of beeping after the call as if to say, “oh, a job was trying to reach you, but they’ve hung up now”!!!
Greedy for money
by CoffeeGirl5150 on 2018/08/11 14:35
I did give this app 4 stars but I’m changing it to 1. I paid for Talkatone plus to use features, and there are still ads! To remove ads you have to pay $1.99/month on top of the monthly subscription of $3.99 to be able to use call forwarding. Honestly, if you pay a subscription you shouldn’t have to see ads, period. I am just so grateful that I can use this app while my phone service is temporarily shut off. It works with only WiFi, which I didn’t believe until it actually worked. I’m only giving 4 stars because, while it is a lifesaver (jobsaver too!), the call quality is really bad - and sometimes when people call me it’ll ring 7-8 times on their end & they’ll hang up but it won’t actually ring on my phone until 3-4 minutes later. The moral of the story is... it will keep you in communication with the rest of the world 👍 -but don’t count on it for emergencies.
Work well at first
by Emma Joelle on 2019/08/09 18:01
I really hate leaving bad reviews on things because not everyone has the same experience and sometimes people are just too over dramatic but this app is really really bad. It worked well for me for a while so if you just need it for short term, like traveling out of country or something, this app is fine. But the app really started getting glitchy and slow as time went on. Sometimes my texts won’t send and most times I don’t receive an notification for a text unless I have the app open. Also, let me call any one from the actual dial pad until the app has been open for an hour or so. Plus, when I get a get the notification for an incoming call on the app while I’m in another app or my phone is off it either comes through a few seconds before the call ends or when I answer the call it doesn’t work. This is my experience with this app. I just wanted to share.
It's great and all but
by Caydencb on 2018/11/05 14:45
This is a overall great app. I can call and text anyone as long as I got connection. BUT -since there's always a but- it's kinda slow. It could be my phone tho but, to be honest, that's not my main concern. The reason I came here is that I want to be able to call people on no caller ID. Just like if I were to put in *67 before the call and my number suddenly can't be seen. When I try this, it doesn't even ring. I want this to be an option. Yes I could burn my number but at the same time, I only got one burn. Unless I pay for more. And I'm not on this app because I got money. This is an overall amazing app but like I said, there is almost always a but. That's just all I gotta say
It’s all right
by FattyFaye on 2018/01/09 18:07
Note: I am using this app on an iPod. There are pros and cons. Pros: it’s free. You can text or call anyone on any phone without the other person having to use the same app or sign up for something. And regardless of what type of phone the person has. The call feature works well. I have made and received phone calls with no issues. Advertisements are unobtrusive and do not interrupt use. Cons: The texting feature is riddled with bugs. It does not connect well with contacts list on my device. So I often can’t see who I’ve been texting with. Despite my volume being on and setting for notifications being on, it does not audibly notify me when I get texts. It does send a visual notification, but I only see it, obviously, if I’m already looking at my device. It may or may not save text history. That’s very spotty. Sometimes it saves only one half the conversation. Sometimes none. Sometimes only the last text sent or received. Those are the issues I can think of off the top of my head. Can’t comment upon video chat or group chat. Haven’t used that. Also, not sure if it’s available with this app.
Best APP EVER
by peacock886 on 2018/01/01 04:45
This app is by far the best I've ever had I no longer have to pay for cell phone service as I completely 100% now use wifi for all my calling texting and data usage it's amazing! Updated review: this app keeps getting worse and worse. Sometimes I get incoming calls, sometimes I do not. Sometimes I get texts, sometimes I do not. It’s gotten so bad that I’ve had to go out and purchase phone service again which defeated the whole purpose of getting the app to begin with. I still have it downloaded on one of my Phones cause I need the number, but now I get signed out of the app constantly and even deleted and reinstalled the App hoping it would work and NOPE :/ I’m getting close to deleting it for good since it’s been over a year and we still can’t send videos thru this app.
Not 100% terrible.. but close..
by Thefirstspark on 2018/01/04 23:42
I’ve tried very seriously to use Talkatone as a phone service replacement for 6 months... DON’T DO THAT! Super extremely astonishingly unbelievably slow to load.. it literally takes a full minute to boot up on iPhone 6. No notifications.. missed calls.. missed texts. Riddled with obnoxious adverts. UGLY AS ALL SIN. Glitchy, will often get stuck in a certain orientation while the keyboard gets flipped in the other orientation, necessitating a restart. Terrible connection quality through public WiFi. Get this, if you want to send a text longer then around 500 characters TOO BAD. It’ll send the first part, chop off the rest and delete it from existence. GARBAGE. I can't tell you how many times I've booted up this app to find that someone tried to get a hold of me the day before and the app just plain didn't let me know!!! Well there goes that job! Guess I’ll have to explain to that girl why I didn’t answer her text for two days! It’s totally unreliable!!! Ugly. Very ugly. Did I mention it’s ugly? Because it is ugly. It’s totally covered in ads everywhere that slow it down and you accidentally hit and they charge you the predatory 1.99$ A MONTH to get rid of them. If I could give it ZERO stars I would. Fix your crappy app!
Cut my call off
by Crushal24 on 2018/12/04 23:33
30 minutes max then it completely drop my call that’s on each call also hard for other party to hear me sometimes calls go in&out you would have to wait that if it don’t cut my call off I give 3 starts because I like the short calls I’m a busy person but when I’m on a help call it’s not the way to go if call drop some help desk don’t you call back. So you would have to start at the beginning with a new representative explaining you’re problem again. Irritating I know right Other than that everything is perfect I love it I think the app has a fantastic layout call messaging al simple well maintain from Google I support every business willing to grow keep up the good work
I Love this app!!
by Gaby_Is_Fire on 2017/11/02 05:10
So, I broke my phone for a while, and I needed something to communicate with, so I downloaded this app on an iPod that I had, and I have to say, this app is THE BEST! Subscription is cheap, and you can creat and join group chats without having awkward “sent from the ______ app” or stuff like that, and the best part is that you can use it for company sign ups, like when you need to use a phone number to verify an account, this app lets you do that! I’ve tried almost all of the free texting apps, and even big ones like “TextNow” don’t compare to this! I completely recommend for anyone!
Greatly appreciated app
by Bckits on 2018/12/20 07:27
As long as you have good wifi signal this is an amazing app. I have been using for several months now and have never had to purchase call minutes or spend any money for the use of this app. It works great, except for every once in a while on an outgoing call when the other party answers after 9 seconds it reads on my screen, VOICE TRAFFIC BLOCKED BY NETWORK.... Not really sure what causes that but can usually end call and make again right away and most of the time it goes through then
Great app but grabs the microphone from iOS &doesn’t release it
by Once was a techie on 2019/01/10 15:04
The title says it all. Tested several phone I’d lose the microphones immediately after making a Talkatone call. Fortunately I found a workaround : I go to google select their microphone and it comes on and I exit google and immediately and microphone is back for everything. At one point the microphone problem went away but then came back again after another update. Not sure if it was a talkafone update or not. Developer please confirm. The other issue I have is being able to get to the Tallkafone screen to answer a phone call before they hang up. They are mostly always BOT phone calls. I wish there was a way of answering them faster so I could tell them off. It takes me extra time to answer a call bc I am usually not using my iPad when the call comes in and I have to 1j swing my iPad holder arm into position and 2) enter my lock screen password. This takes several seconds bc I am bedridden and have a swing-arm iPad holder attached to the tray table that’s multipurpose and wheels over my bed.
Excellent but...
by Wolfeyw on 2019/05/01 00:44
This app is great for calling and stuff. But one thing, the ads making sounds are the problem. There shouldn’t be sounds with the ads. I have been making sure I can deal with the ad to be on there because They don’t really bother me I mean it’s one thing if the ads are on there showing up, but if they keep making noise and I hear sound in the background that’s another because what if I’m on a phone call and then I hear an ad making noise. I think that needs to be fixed, because the 1.99 a month should be if you don’t want the ad at all not because of the sounds
Great for nonCell connected Wifi devices
by BZ19552013 on 2018/08/24 23:43
Contacts does not allow me to delete a contact, even after deleting or moving a contact in my iPad contacts. Just reporting here that Optimum blocks the phone connection on their OptimumWiFi network which is installed on Optimum-supplied business and residential routers (but off-LAN on the residential side), because the ISP has its own residential cable phone service. It works fine on one's own residential Optimum-connected LAN (which I have). Perhaps the merger could convince their new European owners to change this policy. The app is running much more slowly than it used to. I don't recommend anyone paying for it. The contacts problem above is still not resolved.
Slowest Texting App.
by PlasticDonut on 2017/12/27 04:17
As soon as I clicked on the app I immediately realized this app was SLOW. It took 2 minutes to OPEN the app. I clicked on a contact and tried to open our conversation and that took an ADDITIONAL 2 MINUTES. I thought "o well. It's a bit slow. That's fine." Then I texted my friend and the app glitched until the point of where I turned off my phone; turned it back on and if was STILL FROZEN. and then it finally loaded to find out my friend texted me 4 times and was asking where I went because I hadn't texted in 4 minutes. It didn't do this again but it's still SLOW AS HECC. I would not get this app. Instead get one that works and does not glitch; and takes minutes to receive or send a text.
Iffy
by .,.,?! on 2017/11/25 17:23
I’ve had this app for a couple years now and for the most part there isn’t a better app to download. Recently the app has prohibited me from making calls for unexplained reasons. I’ve done everything possible to try to correct it on me end and still same results call terminated. I’ve messaged support more times this year than I ever have and my issue is never really fixed. Because this app is so good imo I deal with the frustration and headache to continue to use it because I haven’t found anything on the market better. If you never run into this issue this is by far the best app to download for those stationed or living overseas...
One of the Best I seen
by GCooksJr on 2019/02/27 16:53
This app is so easy to use. I love how clear each call is and unlike my current cell phone provider, it does not drop continually drop calls, and I don’t have to keep repeating myself or ask them what did they say. The only drawback I have found with this app, is if the app is not open, the phone will not ring. It would be nice if they could keep it active in the background so that it would work like a regular phone. Other than this, I think it’s fantastic.
Works but not as well as you hope
by OchoTN on 2018/05/08 17:04
This app does what it says. It gives you a number, it allows you to call and text. So from that standpoint it does work. It has glitches and limitations, however which are annoying. It likes to freeze up a lot. Sent texts doesn’t always go through. This happens with some regularity. You cannot send/receive vids via text. And lately it has begun duplicating my contacts. I now have one person listed 27 times with the same info, but the app does not have a way to delete contacts because it uses your contact list from the phone, not within the app. Needs lots of upgrades.
Great app!
by TheRudeGal on 2019/09/19 17:00
This app is very good!!! The only reason why I put 3 stars instead of five is for this simple reason... Sometimes. The app is slow and I cannot load my messages... sometimes I’m sent messages and I don’t receive them... Just recently my calls aren’t going through, my text conversations sometimes only show my messages and not the other persons.. sometimes it’s the opposite and only their messages are showing... It’s very inconsistent and inconvenient but however, when this app is working perfectly or as it should it deserves 5 stars! This app is 100% free and I absolutely love how they were smart when they created this app and you can use your cellular network and still continue to use your app number.. This is very important as sometimes WiFi isn’t around and you still want to send text messages using a different number! Please update or fix the bugs!!’ Idk what happened! It worked perfectly the first few months but now it’s starting to have bugs and lots of issues.
Glitches with newest update
by mpCAL on 2019/05/19 07:24
First off, this is a great app for international travel when you still need to have people contact you with a US number. That being said, the updates are getting super annoying. It seems like every time I update, something weird happens. This time around the screen is freezing on me and I can’t answer phone calls. Another update ago, I would have to log in every time I opened the app. The developers seem to make a new glitch every time they fix a different one. It’s getting frustrating to the point that if the next update doesn’t work, I’ll probably ditch this app altogether.
Bad connectivity
by Anna Cupples on 2018/07/13 05:24
This app usually works well for me, as long as I have a strong data or LTE connection. Sometimes it will cut out or drop calls, or have bad sound quality. But my real issue lately is the app keeps telling me that there is a problem with my connection. My connection works fine for the rest of my apps. Even after uninstalling and reinstalling, restarting my phone it still will not connect. And now I can't even log back in because of the connection issues. The app is virtually unusable because I can't sign in. This is the second time in the last month that this has happened.
Good features-terrible app quality.
by Snafu eve on 2018/01/25 04:23
This app is amazing in terms of what it allows you to do. If you have wifi, you can call/text any time you please, as much as you please. There is a lot of bugs and twitches on the app. There will be times you will get kicked off the app, times you can't hear whoever is on the other side of the call, and worst of all, your writing a long message and hit send-it never sends! Though there are a lot of bugs associated with the app, I am very respectful of it because it is a one-of-a-kind app that's features are actually what they say they are. You don't have to buy or watch videos for minutes, it's literally unlimited free calling/texting. I'd give the app one star because the bugs outweighs the features:(
I get a bunch of scammers calls
by Rpjhkid on 2019/07/25 05:09
The app works fine. I have only given my number on it to one person who I know offline. I have not put it on any online forms etc. Nevertheless, I get calls from people who leave messages using text-to-speech saying a lawsuit has been filed against my name which is ridiculous because no name is connected to the number. I don’t see in options for blocking callers either I also cannot seem to find a do not disturb setting. Calls come through even with my iPad on do not disturb which is annoying considering that it is mostly idiots saying I am being sued or I won some huge prize, all I have to do is give them my credit card... etc.
Great Extra Phone Line
by worldbfree4u on 2019/02/04 20:50
I absolutely love this app. It provides me with an extra phone line for my personal use and I use it all the time on my iPad. The calls are as clear as my iPhone calls and I can function with this app just like I could with my iPhone. This is a must have application for those that have an iPad and need a back up number or would like a different number to give out the folks you really don’t want to have your personal information. Oh, did I mention its FREE!!!
WORST BURNER APP EVER!!!!!
by nickname for what??? on 2018/04/17 11:44
First off in order for me to review I had to rate. My rate would be a minus million stars if possible. Keeps rebooting as your in the middle of writing a text doesn’t come back with what text was starting. All I ever see is Talkatone is connecting ever single time. But the worst is there is no LOG OUT option like all other burner apps have. Do not waste your time you will be very disappointed! This is my 3rd time using this time and I’m done. You have to uninstall and then reinstall remember your info to get back into that particular number or if you want to make another one each and every time. Whatever the developers write back I DON’T CARE. Very GLiTCY also. Thanxs but no thanks I use my real number and private my calls.
Sometimes it works excellent but sometimes not
by Brittany0344 on 2019/01/15 18:31
Sometimes whenever I’m in Wi-Fi And there’s no service on my phone so I’m just using Wi-Fi service I could be in a house with excellent Lyfy and it will just stopped working out of nowhere where the caller can’t hear me nor I can’t hear them but then once I completely close out the app and then return to the APP by opening it up again it takes about five minutes to start working back to normal and other than that issue
Very easy to use and free
by Aguatec on 2019/10/18 23:23
Following download, just a couple of steps and off you go! Easy to test. Here is what I did. I texted my cell phone from the app; then I reply from my cell phone and it worked seamlessly! Best part, I just needed a free app with a dedicated phone number which I could keep to get text messages from my bank and va hospital while I was out of the country and the regular cell phone was out of service. Try it, what you gotta loose? Worked instantly and flawlessly...
THERE IS NO SUBSTITUTE....!!!!

See above comment This is a very, very useful application that everyone should keep in their "tool box." It's perfect for times when you have no cell phone service but a very strong Wi-Fi connection... Further, as someone else mentioned, it's a very useful application when you are traveling abroad and would like to make calls back to the United States or Canada. It doesn't take up much space. I highly recommend having it available for use.
Good app but needs work
by steve hobs :) on 2019/08/28 10:59
This app has been great but sometimes, when I send texts they don’t deliver gives either the message failed response or just doesn’t go through. Also It doesn’t support some special characters within texts and it automatically sends weird messages I didn’t send, I personally don’t understand how that’s possible but I’ve experienced this nonetheless. App lags and disconnects frequently . It’s been great but these issues should please be looked into, Thank you for your great service.
Would be a 5 or a 4 but I keep having issues.
by Skylaaaa Jones on 2019/04/10 15:04
The first time I used this app I loved it. It worked great. At the time, my phone was currently disconnected from service so I used to to communicate heavily with friends and family. Never gave me any issues. Fast forward a couple months and I reconnect services with my cell plan provider, I need space in my phone and delete Talkatone. Now I am again disconnected and downloaded the app again. However this time I am less than happy. Every call I make it says, “Network error: no voice channels.” Even if I relaunch the app it says this.
Must have app!
by RG in Oki on 2019/05/28 20:57
This app has been a game changer for living overseas with family and business in the US. Having a dedicated number, allowing for text messaging, clear call quality even at the end of the month when my data is slow has made life so much easier when sometimes you just need to sort it out over the phone. The only negative is I sometimes get the app open fast enough when I receive a call, but that probably has more to do with me than the app itself.

I’ve used this for over a year now. No longer texts groups, takes ten minutes to load contacts, drops calls, messages fail constantly, and app crashes. Terrible!
It’s so nice having my own private line. I call it “ the Batphone” I love the service

by Onio1 on 2019/11/04 15:42
I would rate this better, but it’s a good app overall but very frustrating an it cashes A lot! It doesn’t load messages, it split messages up. Sometime it won’t connect to the Internet! When you get off the app an come back to it more problems come. Smh please fix something in the new update because now this app might just get uninstalled and replaced with something less stressful.
What I think from Talkatone?
by A Crs on 2019/11/03 22:12
Talkatone is a great app!!! It turns your iPad into a 📱 phone, I wish that you were able to FaceTime. You can still use your iPad to text and Call and FaceTime with an eMail, but you can only do that with people that have iPhones . With Talkatone you can text people with Samsung’s and androids.
Love love love love this app but the only issue is is that you can’t call so people

Hello Talkatone so right now I was calling my dad and it was glitching it was like cutting out what my dad was saying so I said to call me back and he did but it still did it SO TALKATONE FIX THIS BUG!anywase I still love the app but 1 star because of that
Horrible
by Cierra Goin on 2019/10/28 04:40
It started duplicating messages on people I was textings phones it was duplicating the messages I sent and the messages that they replied with. Wouldn’t recommend for anyone!!
It’s not the best.

Picture sending
by Iamgorgouz on 2019/10/27 07:37
When I send a picture to a real phone number they only get a link to view it from a browser, without data it won't open. Can't I send a picture directly? And also I am not able to sign out of the app on my iPhone when I want to.
Ok

This app is adequate for making calls but receiving calls is another matter now incoming call notification has stopped working even when you make a call it takes at least 5 minutes for the call to reach its destination this service is not reliable at all.
It’s OK but if he work
by bfaslim on 2019/10/25 14:55
When I’m not in a good area I can’t get calls at all
Too buggy
by wifi gamer on 2019/10/25 02:58
Not really compatible with iPhone 6s Messages tend to disappear whenever you open the app or whenever you try to text someone back. Contacts seem to disappear or are not found sometimes whenever you are trying to call someone or text someone from your contacts list. WiFi signal is great so it’s not the WiFi. Just a buggy app that needs some serious work done to it.
Excellent
by Vincent H.W on 2019/10/24 17:59
in fact,this app may be the best,but some ads make me bad. Compare with the same function apps,talkatone really runs best.
Notifications
by Big Hefe Q on 2019/10/24 11:58
It’s a great app and all but I do not like how if I’m not using notifications for the app that it vibrates rapidly in background without a Trace
Good phone app

Crap sound
by Flames1379 on 2019/10/17 17:27
I haven’t been able to use the app as a burner phone because I can never hear the sounds in time to actually answer the phone! Out of sheer frustration I did all that the “support” advised: made sure my phone’s setting allowed the app full access, even have the app’s volume at max, deleted and reinstalled app, reset my phone, etc. And still the sound is absolute crap when both the phone and app are at max volume! One would think that since the developers have known this to be a problem for YEARS that it would have been properly addressed and resolved by now.

Wack
by 16BitJustin on 2019/10/08 22:39
It never notifies me when I get a message, or phone call, I’ve done all the troubleshooting steps that the website provided, still nothing. I pay for this app, what is the point if it’s not going to let me know when someone is calling or texting? You guys claim that it’s been fixed and then we have to do this and that and every other troubleshooting process. Half of the time when I’m on the phone I can’t hear the other person because they’re going in and out and the phone audio is breaking up. Thanks for nothing I will not be paying for this app anymore.
Works great

Overall good, could make some changes
by Maddy12356790076434 on 2019/10/07 21:44
This app has served its purpose overall. I wish the volume was a little better and I wish you didn’t have to put it on speaker to hear when you’re on the phone. I wish the voicemail volume didn’t come out of the loud speaker. I wish that contacts would not auto save to my contact book. I wish the cell service would work a bit better. I can only hear people when on WiFi as I am using this as a work number rather than for overseas purposes.

This is a virus.
by L Jerfy Pen on 2019/10/04 00:59
If you ever try to uninstall this app. It will not uninstall completely. And it will reappear everytime you cut your phone on. It will cripple your device if you try to uninstall. Do not use this app unless you want to get rid of your device, or you want to throw money away at a tech doctor.
Good service

I would give it five stars but.....
by Cubanito1971 on 2018/09/24 02:26
So this app has worked perfect for me while I’m living in Japan. I get calls from the states I can text everything goes through quickly I’m not sure why everyone else is complaining about lag I don’t experience any of it. I do however experience a very very annoying treat and I’m not sure if Talkatone is responsible for it or not. But I’m gonna blame them anyway because it is their app. Whenever I am texting someone my phone opens the App Store. Even if I close it it really opens it and it takes me to some dating site or something weird sometimes it says I’m in the wrong App Store. Which I assume means that I’m trying to get the American app Stor when I’m really in Japan not sure what that’s all about but even if I close out talk atone and reopen it and go back to texting it’s only a matter of seconds before the App Store starts opening up. And then it’s frustration time because you have to close both applications the App Store and Talkatone and then re-launch Talkatone to continue were you were texting only for a few minutes later to start the process all over again. Talk atone if you are listening to this review I love you guys I can even send you video of what I’m experiencing but something needs to be done because this is crap. Otherwise I am extremely happy I’ve even thought about buying the package to disable ads and my only worry is that it would not fix the App Store opening up.

I’ve had this app for 2 years.. I would have given it 5 stars because it worked great! In the last 2 weeks.. all calls go directly to voicemail.. I have emailed support at least 5 times and still no answer ( I mean they don’t even respond)!!!!!!!! In the past you could delete the app and reinstall it.. and nothing was lost... not this time!!!! I delete it and reinstalled it and everything I had on there is gone!!!!! Some of this was special stuff... plus numbers I now can’t get back... I’m so disappointed!!! Especially in the fact that support doesn’t answer!!! And I still can’t get calls or even know I have a call.. it doesn’t ring... but goes directly to voicemail! And I only find out I have a call from looking at my emails! If support answers and fixes this problem I will change this back to 5 stars.. because it always worked in the past!!! And if there was a problem support contacted me right away.... not this time.. I’m devastated that I lost messages and call logs.. from someone special!!!!
garbage (and that's being kind)
by gothdaddy on 2018/07/29 23:07
if you enjoy endless frustration, go ahead and get this awful app... if you need to get a text reliably through, don't bank on this at all... EVERYthing i ask it to do results in a huge delay of 40 seconds to a minute... not kidding at all... EVERY...thing! waiting for conversations to load takes forever! calling up the text box takes forever! seeing actual contact names instead of their numbers takes forever! even just trying to complete a text to someone TAKES FOREVER because of hiccups and long delays!! i have to pretty much count on a five minute ordeal just to send a simple text to someone, EVERY time! my god, even the ads don't fit the spaces provided for them, ads from local business here... i bet they don't even know what they're getting for their advertising dollars... even aesthetically this app is awful... COULD THIS APP GET ANY WORSE!? (sadly, probably)... oh! a new update! hopefully they've addressed the delay issue! .....oh, no, no they haven't.... i just sent a text that took a minute and 15 seconds to go through... everything still takes a millennium... the app won't even rotate from portrait to landscape in less than 45 seconds! IT CAN'T EVEN DO THAT REASONABLY QUICKLY!! what in the living hell is the problem!? PLEASE sell this app to a developer who cares.... PLEASE!!
WORKS WELL ESPECIALLY FOR FREE
by SusieQ 71561 on 2018/10/15 21:02
My son found this app for my granddaughter who is 7 so she is able to use her “new cell phone.” It’s actually an older phone that my son gave to her to use with select people and there is no charge like you would have if you needed to activate and buy minutes or a phone calling card. He pre-programmed the numbers she is allowed to call and now that her and I and a few of her friends from school and in another state that they used to live in can have phone conversations for as long as we want as often as we want we are all happy. I found the app very easy to use and have not had any issue thus far. Neither has my granddaughter. It also works on my tablet so that we can text if wanted but she is only starting to write sentences and its just easier for her to talk. She does get a kick out of this as do I. Thank you for keeping it free.
Excellent 100% FREE calling & texting
by NUN-Yabizness on 2018/08/19 10:46
There are reviews on here that claim things like “it takes forever to send messages” or, “calls don’t work” or, “app takes forever to load” BUT, I personally have used this app and tried others that CLAIM to be free but then want to charge after the “free credits” are used - I have had occasional issues with the app “freezing” and sometimes the sound quality on calls could be better but, after restarting it, it works flawlessly and reliably and, it really IS 100% FREE ! Ok, so there are ads ... it’s a FREE calling & messaging app and, if the tiny, unobtrusive ads at the top or bottom of the window bother you, then pay to have them removed because NO app is going to give 100% truly free calling and messaging without ads. I only ding Talkatone one star for the occasional hiccups that I already mentioned but, overall it is a very good app that I use every day. Thanks and keep up the good work !
Giving it four stars because of the quality.
by teiiemwhmwuku on 2019/03/09 04:00
Overall, this app is pretty cool. You can make unlimited calls in the US and Canada. Most apps would make you buy credits for all calls. Since I have no use for the international calling subscriptions for credit I don’t need to buy them. But the reason my review is 4 stars is the quality. I keep hearing static and some weird long beep and sometimes the caller on the other end sounds like they have helium in their voice. If you could improve the quality of calling, I would give it five stars. And also when I am receiving an incoming call and the app is not open, I click on the notification that I receive and it doesn’t answer the call. I have to call the other person back. Improve the quality and fix the incoming call issue and it’s five stars.
Many Problems
by Babynannycake on 2019/07/13 23:13
This app is amazing i would say but i have a lot of problems and it is bothering me. So when I first got it, the app was amazing and it was fun I would say but when i kept using it, a lot of strangers would always text me and say “hey I’m a horny sexy girl looking for sex and I’m single” or “stop calling me man your soo Gay” But I don’t know how people get my number and it’s angry and kept on bothering me and told them to stop and it never ended it. I am very angry but so far, it was a OK app but I have a lot of glitches and every time my mom calls me, it would say “unlock pin” then I’m done but I call them but it then it shows me that I accept the call or decline and when I am done it shows me calling them with was angry and annoying but I would say that I would love that if you update it so people won’t automatically text or call you and I have been getting robot calls but I was aloud to block them so I was happy about that. Thank you for reading this.
Does the job
by zlilbit on 2019/09/25 01:30
Talkatone is a great option for a second line. I've used the free version for about a year and have gone through a couple of phone numbers without any issues. I've been able to talk (within USA), text and send pictures with no issues and all for free. I only use talkatone for selling stuff online and other occasional social events. As long, as the former owner of the phone number didn't post that number online or they owe money to creditors, the talkatone number doesn't get bot or phishing calls. That can happen with any number. I'm just having a little trouble finding the voicemail messages. I forgot where to retrieve the voicemails. Keep up the good work. Update: voice mail appeared again after reinitiated the app. I didn't reinstall but I enabled background refresh and it did the job.
This App Works So Well
by Misery Ave on 2019/02/27 17:16
So as a 15 year old with a small family and low income my mother doesn’t make much money she could only afford to pay for service for one phone and I couldn’t call or text people so I went on a hunt to find a legit app that would let me talk and text for free it was hard but I came across talkatone this app is AMAZING not even joking I can now call my mother and text her or anyone else FOR FREE this app works and is definitely work downloading no free trials needed the only problem is that we can have ringtones from songs in our Apple Music section but instead we have premaid ringtones that would be nice to have custom ringtones if possible but otherwise this app works very very well and I do recommend downloading this app if you can afford service to call chat or text people I give it a 5 stars
Never lets you answer calls
by judesamson79 on 2019/03/19 23:58
Calling out can be spotty - often it will seem to connect but there’s no sound so you have to disconnect and call right back. Other times you could be mid-call and all of a sudden it gets very staticky. Doesn’t matter if it’s WiFi or 3g or where you are located. Signal doesn’t improve. If you hang up and call back suddenly it’s clear again. MASSIVE battery hog. A few programs can be battery hogs but this one will drain you after only a few mins on a call. It’s best to be plugged in or near a plug especially if you plan to talk more than 15 mins. The BIGGEST issue is I cannot get it to let me accept any calls. Most of the time I get a quick chirp letting me know I just missed a call even though it wasn’t ringing. Other times it sends the caller straight to voicemail and I only know about it because there’s a missed call/voicemail notification. On the rarest of occasions where it actually rings it still doesn’t actually connect you. When you click to connect it’s just dead silence even though the phone counter is ticking as if the call is connected. Most of the time I just disconnect and try calling the person back. Anytime I give out the number i tell people to just email me or leave a message so I can call them back since this app never works. It worked not horribly initially so I’ve started to establish it as a steady number but it’s gone so down the drain it’s barely functioning anymore.
I never write reviews for apps...buuuut
by xoxoMommaBearxoxo on 2018/12/18 13:18
I never write reviews for apps, but this app is wonderful. It does drain the battery a bit; but the reason it does that is because it’s constantly running in the background. I need an app that acts like a genuine phone. That means anyone can call me...anytime! The other apps shut down entirely after a period of time. That means missed calls, missed texts and well.. just not what I’m looking for. This app also sends full photos (MMS) texts and does not attach the application logo or link. The recipient receives typical messages without advertisements! Other apps don’t even let the recipient open photos unless they download their texting app! This one works like a regular cellular service, which no others seem to. Love it!
Free candy!
by moukeefe on 2019/08/22 12:03
Free candy, yeah, nothing comes for free. I was impressed at first. My own private phone number, texting, yada yada. And just when people I’m close to get used to my private number an add pops up from the developer saying I must agree to their policies of information sharing before I can use the app again. So I go and read the policy. Are you F@$#ing kidding me? This policy is worse than those I see on windows apps disclaimers. It boils down to, we demand the right to assume your identity. And if you say, “yeah, whatever” then they get total access to your texts, photos, phone calls, messages, videos, and everything else on your device. And they will sell that to whoever’s walking by with a buck. Or hand it over to the authorities should there be something on your device they find suspicious. “Dude, that party last night was bomb”. Clearly a terrorist, arrest him. Nice try Mr. Trumphole. I bet he was like, you must call it “trumpatone”! Anyway. I can’t use it anymore because I don’t like my info being out there like that. You decide but please read that policy first.
Decent
by jedimaster7687 on 2018/06/01 16:26
This app does everything that a normal Smartphone would, but I only have one problem with it. The problem is that in order to receive calls, you have to have the app open in the background, and calls appear in a notification at the top of the screen, making it so that if you are in another app, you have to quit whatever you were doing, and rush to the app to answer the call. I recall missing a call at least once, and today my Mom called me, and sense I swiped away all my apps, and couldn’t answer the call. She had to call a different number, and let me know that it didn’t work. That really frustrates me, but other than that, the app works just fine. PLEASE fix this problem, and other apps like Skype or FaceTime just interrupt what your doing, which in my option I like a LOT better than missing the call every time.
1.5 stars updated review
by alexknowsall on 2018/01/14 06:21
I planned to write here in a week but its been something like a month. After a period of time suddenly the app stops notifying when messages come in. Also the app progressively got less consistent with message delivery as time has passed. Day 1 review: "I deleted this before because it was to glitchy I decided to give the app another try today, so far so good. There have been two crashes already today but Nice layout everything has been sent and received quickly, no other glitches or obtrusive adds, service is actually free :)) all good so far. Lost half a star cuz two crashes in less than a day and you lost one full star because the "do not disturb" setting on my iphone does not impact your app. Not sure if that last one is within the devs power but i feel like it aught to be, perhaps i just didnt see a do not disturb within the app or have some other setting arri, i will update review in a week or two after i have used it more."
Good but getting worse for reliability
by NitroBiz on 2018/12/31 18:57
I've been using Talkatone for years now. I ported over my At&t number to Google Voice so I could retain my US number as I moved to Brazil. As I began to use Talkatone I was amazed by the reliability at placing and receiving calls along with receiving and sending SMS messages to my friends and family back home. Several updates later it seems as though the reliability has gotten worse with every update. I used to get an immediate notice when I received a call or SMS, but now it seems as though I never do. I've tried tinkering with the settings but nothing works. I still recommend it but wish they would figure out the notification reliability problem.
Save your $$$ for soda and not this app!
by Trust ME! I Know on 2019/04/12 22:19
Well sad to say in Theory it’s a 5 stars app! Works great to test it Until you pay the $3.99 for better VM and $1.99 to remove ads. It worked perfect for a day and once I decided I would keep the app and pay up it went down hill from there. Looking back I should have paid someone $5.00 to just kick me in the nuts and call it a day! It would have been less painful. The phone rings one time and that’s it. You have no idea people are calling you. Unless your phone screen is on 24/7 a call will not show up. Text messages are 50/50 that you receive. I’m a tech guy and tried every single notification option on my IPhone and on the app and ALL calls are missed. Nothing worked! Tried to email tech support on the app! MIA for days no response at all. I have cancelled the subscription and gone back to Google that is 100% free and reliable for a work line. I’m out $6.49 and 2 days of aggravation! Trust me Keep your $$$
Big fat zero
by jefa5530 on 2019/01/08 11:25
This is an absolute worst app I ever had to deal with. First of all it’s only good for text messaging really because when’re someone tries to call you your phone simply does not ring. I tried everything. It just doesn’t ring. And yes I even picked out a ring melody out of offered ones. Second of all, it takes forever for the app to warm up once u open it. Third, if you are a fast texted/typed, this app is not got you as your fingers will moving 10 times faster then this app will respond , it won’t even comprehend the words you are typing. I It freezes. Half the times it is very selective with what msg it will send and which ones it would not. Sometimes it shows it send, but all it looks like on ur screen is just s small cloud with three dots, there’s no text. As I come to find out that means that text didn’t go through. I can keep going. Don’t use this app. It’s the worst of the worst. Real shame on its creator or developer, such shame.
Best Free Call and Text App
by Kelmin X on 2018/09/21 23:56
I had my phone shut off but still needed to make calls and text. I’ve used this app in the past and it was always useful. But now that I haven’t had a phone all year this has helped me with people who don’t have iMessage. I recommend it to anyone. Is it perfect, no, but it has kept me going without any teal issues. I once paid for the add removal, but it made no difference so I don’t recommend paying for that. I talk to my mom for hours and don’t drop calls. There are no credits to buy or videos you have to watch this is the best app for calling and texting.
Started at a 5 and now we’re here.
by ._. & :/ & :] on 2019/04/17 00:21
At first this app worked wonderfully. I talked to one person, and it worked perfectly fine. But, after about a month and a half of using the app, it started to glitch. Where i could only see the other person’s side of the conversation when i opened the app. But, closing the app and then opening it fixed the problem. Now, whenever I try and do that, the app either crashes, or shows that I have 800 different threads with the person i’m talking to. And that just means more lag and more crashing. It takes me 10-15 minutes of repetitively closing and opening my app (at some points completely soft resetting my phone multiple times) to finally get it to work properly. And that properly working takes a good hour before it crashes again. Mini complaints is that sometimes the app doesn’t give me the notification that i got a text. it also heats my phone to the point of where it scares me to touch it. An edit to this post: When the update happened, the app began to work just as fine as it did when i first got it. But, again, slowly over time it started to lag or crash. Then finally, it’s gone back to the 10-15 minute opening closing. It’s even to gotten where I can’t text and it slowly follows my movement to where the text takes 5 minutes to register what I typed.
DO NOT USE. Terrible app, terrible service
by JaelValentine on 2018/12/16 13:02
UPDATE: Months after reaching out to Talkatone Support, nothing has been done to address my problems. And there are more problems now! The app still doesn’t ring when calls come in. But now it also confuses text messages in group chats, sends texts only on occasion, and sends some calls to the wrong numbers! And you can bet Support doesn’t care, not even for a paying customer. Give this app a hard pass! There are plenty of other ones to try, where they’re more likely to treat you like a (paying) human being! OLD REVIEW: This app does not ring when it receives phone calls! It just makes a loud beep when the caller is leaving a voicemail. This costs me valuable work! I pay $1.99 a month for this app. The least it could do is tell me when I’m getting a phone call! Instead of beeping after the call as if to say, “oh, a job was trying to reach you, but they’ve hung up now”!!!
Greedy for money
by CoffeeGirl5150 on 2018/08/11 14:35
I did give this app 4 stars but I’m changing it to 1. I paid for Talkatone plus to use features, and there are still ads! To remove ads you have to pay $1.99/month on top of the monthly subscription of $3.99 to be able to use call forwarding. Honestly, if you pay a subscription you shouldn’t have to see ads, period. I am just so grateful that I can use this app while my phone service is temporarily shut off. It works with only WiFi, which I didn’t believe until it actually worked. I’m only giving 4 stars because, while it is a lifesaver (jobsaver too!), the call quality is really bad - and sometimes when people call me it’ll ring 7-8 times on their end & they’ll hang up but it won’t actually ring on my phone until 3-4 minutes later. The moral of the story is... it will keep you in communication with the rest of the world 👍 -but don’t count on it for emergencies.
Work well at first
by Emma Joelle on 2019/08/09 18:01
I really hate leaving bad reviews on things because not everyone has the same experience and sometimes people are just too over dramatic but this app is really really bad. It worked well for me for a while so if you just need it for short term, like traveling out of country or something, this app is fine. But the app really started getting glitchy and slow as time went on. Sometimes my texts won’t send and most times I don’t receive an notification for a text unless I have the app open. Also, let me call any one from the actual dial pad until the app has been open for an hour or so. Plus, when I get a get the notification for an incoming call on the app while I’m in another app or my phone is off it either comes through a few seconds before the call ends or when I answer the call it doesn’t work. This is my experience with this app. I just wanted to share.
It's great and all but
by Caydencb on 2018/11/05 14:45
This is a overall great app. I can call and text anyone as long as I got connection. BUT -since there's always a but- it's kinda slow. It could be my phone tho but, to be honest, that's not my main concern. The reason I came here is that I want to be able to call people on no caller ID. Just like if I were to put in *67 before the call and my number suddenly can't be seen. When I try this, it doesn't even ring. I want this to be an option. Yes I could burn my number but at the same time, I only got one burn. Unless I pay for more. And I'm not on this app because I got money. This is an overall amazing app but like I said, there is almost always a but. That's just all I gotta say
It’s all right
by FattyFaye on 2018/01/09 18:07
Note: I am using this app on an iPod. There are pros and cons. Pros: it’s free. You can text or call anyone on any phone without the other person having to use the same app or sign up for something. And regardless of what type of phone the person has. The call feature works well. I have made and received phone calls with no issues. Advertisements are unobtrusive and do not interrupt use. Cons: The texting feature is riddled with bugs. It does not connect well with contacts list on my device. So I often can’t see who I’ve been texting with. Despite my volume being on and setting for notifications being on, it does not audibly notify me when I get texts. It does send a visual notification, but I only see it, obviously, if I’m already looking at my device. It may or may not save text history. That’s very spotty. Sometimes it saves only one half the conversation. Sometimes none. Sometimes only the last text sent or received. Those are the issues I can think of off the top of my head. Can’t comment upon video chat or group chat. Haven’t used that. Also, not sure if it’s available with this app.
Best APP EVER
by peacock886 on 2018/01/01 04:45
This app is by far the best I've ever had I no longer have to pay for cell phone service as I completely 100% now use wifi for all my calling texting and data usage it's amazing! Updated review: this app keeps getting worse and worse. Sometimes I get incoming calls, sometimes I do not. Sometimes I get texts, sometimes I do not. It’s gotten so bad that I’ve had to go out and purchase phone service again which defeated the whole purpose of getting the app to begin with. I still have it downloaded on one of my Phones cause I need the number, but now I get signed out of the app constantly and even deleted and reinstalled the App hoping it would work and NOPE :/ I’m getting close to deleting it for good since it’s been over a year and we still can’t send videos thru this app.
Not 100% terrible.. but close..
by Thefirstspark on 2018/01/04 23:42
I’ve tried very seriously to use Talkatone as a phone service replacement for 6 months... DON’T DO THAT! Super extremely astonishingly unbelievably slow to load.. it literally takes a full minute to boot up on iPhone 6. No notifications.. missed calls.. missed texts. Riddled with obnoxious adverts. UGLY AS ALL SIN. Glitchy, will often get stuck in a certain orientation while the keyboard gets flipped in the other orientation, necessitating a restart. Terrible connection quality through public WiFi. Get this, if you want to send a text longer then around 500 characters TOO BAD. It’ll send the first part, chop off the rest and delete it from existence. GARBAGE. I can't tell you how many times I've booted up this app to find that someone tried to get a hold of me the day before and the app just plain didn't let me know!!! Well there goes that job! Guess I’ll have to explain to that girl why I didn’t answer her text for two days! It’s totally unreliable!!! Ugly. Very ugly. Did I mention it’s ugly? Because it is ugly. It’s totally covered in ads everywhere that slow it down and you accidentally hit and they charge you the predatory 1.99$ A MONTH to get rid of them. If I could give it ZERO stars I would. Fix your crappy app!
Cut my call off
by Crushal24 on 2018/12/04 23:33
30 minutes max then it completely drop my call that’s on each call also hard for other party to hear me sometimes calls go in&out you would have to wait that if it don’t cut my call off I give 3 starts because I like the short calls I’m a busy person but when I’m on a help call it’s not the way to go if call drop some help desk don’t you call back. So you would have to start at the beginning with a new representative explaining you’re problem again. Irritating I know right Other than that everything is perfect I love it I think the app has a fantastic layout call messaging al simple well maintain from Google I support every business willing to grow keep up the good work
I Love this app!!
by Gaby_Is_Fire on 2017/11/02 05:10
So, I broke my phone for a while, and I needed something to communicate with, so I downloaded this app on an iPod that I had, and I have to say, this app is THE BEST! Subscription is cheap, and you can creat and join group chats without having awkward “sent from the ______ app” or stuff like that, and the best part is that you can use it for company sign ups, like when you need to use a phone number to verify an account, this app lets you do that! I’ve tried almost all of the free texting apps, and even big ones like “TextNow” don’t compare to this! I completely recommend for anyone!
Greatly appreciated app
by Bckits on 2018/12/20 07:27
As long as you have good wifi signal this is an amazing app. I have been using for several months now and have never had to purchase call minutes or spend any money for the use of this app. It works great, except for every once in a while on an outgoing call when the other party answers after 9 seconds it reads on my screen, VOICE TRAFFIC BLOCKED BY NETWORK.... Not really sure what causes that but can usually end call and make again right away and most of the time it goes through then
Great app but grabs the microphone from iOS &doesn’t release it
by Once was a techie on 2019/01/10 15:04
The title says it all. Tested several phone I’d lose the microphones immediately after making a Talkatone call. Fortunately I found a workaround : I go to google select their microphone and it comes on and I exit google and immediately and microphone is back for everything. At one point the microphone problem went away but then came back again after another update. Not sure if it was a talkafone update or not. Developer please confirm. The other issue I have is being able to get to the Tallkafone screen to answer a phone call before they hang up. They are mostly always BOT phone calls. I wish there was a way of answering them faster so I could tell them off. It takes me extra time to answer a call bc I am usually not using my iPad when the call comes in and I have to 1j swing my iPad holder arm into position and 2) enter my lock screen password. This takes several seconds bc I am bedridden and have a swing-arm iPad holder attached to the tray table that’s multipurpose and wheels over my bed.
Excellent but...
by Wolfeyw on 2019/05/01 00:44
This app is great for calling and stuff. But one thing, the ads making sounds are the problem. There shouldn’t be sounds with the ads. I have been making sure I can deal with the ad to be on there because They don’t really bother me I mean it’s one thing if the ads are on there showing up, but if they keep making noise and I hear sound in the background that’s another because what if I’m on a phone call and then I hear an ad making noise. I think that needs to be fixed, because the 1.99 a month should be if you don’t want the ad at all not because of the sounds
Great for nonCell connected Wifi devices
by BZ19552013 on 2018/08/24 23:43
Contacts does not allow me to delete a contact, even after deleting or moving a contact in my iPad contacts. Just reporting here that Optimum blocks the phone connection on their OptimumWiFi network which is installed on Optimum-supplied business and residential routers (but off-LAN on the residential side), because the ISP has its own residential cable phone service. It works fine on one's own residential Optimum-connected LAN (which I have). Perhaps the merger could convince their new European owners to change this policy. The app is running much more slowly than it used to. I don't recommend anyone paying for it. The contacts problem above is still not resolved.
Slowest Texting App.
by PlasticDonut on 2017/12/27 04:17
As soon as I clicked on the app I immediately realized this app was SLOW. It took 2 minutes to OPEN the app. I clicked on a contact and tried to open our conversation and that took an ADDITIONAL 2 MINUTES. I thought "o well. It's a bit slow. That's fine." Then I texted my friend and the app glitched until the point of where I turned off my phone; turned it back on and if was STILL FROZEN. and then it finally loaded to find out my friend texted me 4 times and was asking where I went because I hadn't texted in 4 minutes. It didn't do this again but it's still SLOW AS HECC. I would not get this app. Instead get one that works and does not glitch; and takes minutes to receive or send a text.
Iffy

I’ve had this app for a couple years now and for the most part there isn’t a better app to download. Recently the app has prohibited me from making calls for unexplained reasons. I’ve done everything possible to try to correct it on me end and still same results call terminated. I’ve messaged support more times this year than I ever have and my issue is never really fixed. Because this app is so good imo I deal with the frustration and headache to continue to use it because I haven’t found anything on the market better. If you never run into this issue this is by far the best app to download for those stationed or living overseas...
One of the Best I seen
by GCooksJr on 2019/02/27 16:53
This app is so easy to use. I love how clear each call is and unlike my current cell phone provider, it does not drop continually drop calls, and I don’t have to keep repeating myself or ask them what did they say. The only drawback I have found with this app, is if the app is not open, the phone will not ring. It would be nice if they could keep it active in the background so that it would work like a regular phone. Other than this, I think it’s fantastic.
Works but not as well as you hope
by OchoTN on 2018/05/08 17:04
This app does what it says. It gives you a number, it allows you to call and text. So from that standpoint it does work. It has glitches and limitations, however which are annoying. It likes to freeze up a lot. Sent texts doesn’t always go through. This happens with some regularity. You cannot send/receive vids via text. And lately it has begun duplicating my contacts. I now have one person listed 27 times with the same info, but the app does not have a way to delete contacts because it uses your contact list from the phone, not within the app. Needs lots of upgrades.
Great app!

This app is very good!!! The only reason why I put 3 stars instead of five is for this simple reason... Sometimes. The app is slow and I cannot load my messages... sometimes I’m sent messages and I don’t receive them... Just recently my calls aren’t going through, my text conversations sometimes only show my messages and not the other persons.. sometimes it’s the opposite and only their messages are showing... It’s very inconsistent and inconvenient but however, when this app is working perfectly or as it should it deserves 5 stars! This app is 100% free and I absolutely love how they were smart when they created this app and you can use your cellular network and still continue to use your app number.. This is very important as sometimes WiFi isn’t around and you still want to send text messages using a different number! Please update or fix the bugs!!’ Idk what happened! It worked perfectly the first few months but now it’s starting to have bugs and lots of issues.
Glitches with newest update
by mpCAL on 2019/05/19 07:24
First off, this is a great app for international travel when you still need to have people contact you with a US number. That being said, the updates are getting super annoying. It seems like every time I update, something weird happens. This time around the screen is freezing on me and I can’t answer phone calls. Another update ago, I would have to log in every time I opened the app. The developers seem to make a new glitch every time they fix a different one. It’s getting frustrating to the point that if the next update doesn’t work, I’ll probably ditch this app altogether.
Bad connectivity
by Anna Cupples on 2018/07/13 05:24
This app usually works well for me, as long as I have a strong data or LTE connection. Sometimes it will cut out or drop calls, or have bad sound quality. But my real issue lately is the app keeps telling me that there is a problem with my connection. My connection works fine for the rest of my apps. Even after uninstalling and reinstalling, restarting my phone it still will not connect. And now I can't even log back in because of the connection issues. The app is virtually unusable because I can't sign in. This is the second time in the last month that this has happened.
Good features-terrible app quality.
by Snafu eve on 2018/01/25 04:23
This app is amazing in terms of what it allows you to do. If you have wifi, you can call/text any time you please, as much as you please. There is a lot of bugs and twitches on the app. There will be times you will get kicked off the app, times you can't hear whoever is on the other side of the call, and worst of all, your writing a long message and hit send-it never sends! Though there are a lot of bugs associated with the app, I am very respectful of it because it is a one-of-a-kind app that's features are actually what they say they are. You don't have to buy or watch videos for minutes, it's literally unlimited free calling/texting. I'd give the app one star because the bugs outweighs the features:(
I get a bunch of scammers calls
by Rpjhkid on 2019/07/25 05:09
The app works fine. I have only given my number on it to one person who I know offline. I have not put it on any online forms etc. Nevertheless, I get calls from people who leave messages using text-to-speech saying a lawsuit has been filed against my name which is ridiculous because no name is connected to the number. I don’t see in options for blocking callers either I also cannot seem to find a do not disturb setting. Calls come through even with my iPad on do not disturb which is annoying considering that it is mostly idiots saying I am being sued or I won some huge prize, all I have to do is give them my credit card... etc.
Great Extra Phone Line
by worldbfree4u on 2019/02/04 20:50
I absolutely love this app. It provides me with an extra phone line for my personal use and I use it all the time on my iPad. The calls are as clear as my iPhone calls and I can function with this app just like I could with my iPhone. This is a must have application for those that have an iPad and need a back up number or would like a different number to give out the folks you really don’t want to have your personal information. Oh, did I mention its FREE!!!
WORST BURNER APP EVER!!!!!
by nickname for what??? on 2018/04/17 11:44
First off in order for me to review I had to rate. My rate would be a minus million stars if possible. Keeps rebooting as your in the middle of writing a text doesn’t come back with what text was starting. All I ever see is Talkatone is connecting ever single time. But the worst is there is no LOG OUT option like all other burner apps have. Do not waste your time you will be very disappointed! This is my 3rd time using this time and I’m done. You have to uninstall and then reinstall remember your info to get back into that particular number or if you want to make another one each and every time. Whatever the developers write back I DON’T CARE. Very GLiTCY also. Thanxs but no thanks I use my real number and private my calls.
Sometimes it works excellent but sometimes not
by Brittany0344 on 2019/01/15 18:31
Sometimes whenever I’m in Wi-Fi And there’s no service on my phone so I’m just using Wi-Fi service I could be in a house with excellent Lyfy and it will just stopped working out of nowhere where the caller can’t hear me nor I can’t hear them but then once I completely close out the app and then return to the APP by opening it up again it takes about five minutes to start working back to normal and other than that issue
Very easy to use and free
by Aguatec on 2019/10/18 23:23
Following download, just a couple of steps and off you go! Easy to test. Here is what I did. I texted my cell phone from the app; then I reply from my cell phone and it worked seamlessly! Best part, I just needed a free app with a dedicated phone number which I could keep to get text messages from my bank and va hospital while I was out of the country and the regular cell phone was out of service. Try it, what you gotta loose? Worked instantly and flawlessly...
THERE IS NO SUBSTITUTE....!!!!
by AMcFH on 2019/03/22 13:28
See above comment This is a very, very useful application that everyone should keep in their "tool box." It's perfect for times when you have no cell phone service but a very strong Wi-Fi connection... Further, as someone else mentioned, it's a very useful application when you are traveling abroad and would like to make calls back to the United States or Canada. It doesn't take up much space. I highly recommend having it available for use.
Good app but needs work
by steve hobs :) on 2019/08/28 10:59
This app has been great but sometimes, when I send texts they don’t deliver gives either the message failed response or just doesn’t go through. Also It doesn’t support some special characters within texts and it automatically sends weird messages I didn’t send, I personally don’t understand how that’s possible but I’ve experienced this nonetheless. App lags and disconnects frequently . It’s been great but these issues should please be looked into, Thank you for your great service.
Would be a 5 or a 4 but I keep having issues.
by Skylaaaa Jones on 2019/04/10 15:04
The first time I used this app I loved it. It worked great. At the time, my phone was currently disconnected from service so I used to to communicate heavily with friends and family. Never gave me any issues. Fast forward a couple months and I reconnect services with my cell plan provider, I need space in my phone and delete Talkatone. Now I am again disconnected and downloaded the app again. However this time I am less than happy. Every call I make it says, “Network error: no voice channels.” Even if I relaunch the app it says this.
Must have app!
by RG in Oki on 2019/05/28 20:57
This app has been a game changer for living overseas with family and business in the US. Having a dedicated number, allowing for text messaging, clear call quality even at the end of the month when my data is slow has made life so much easier when sometimes you just need to sort it out over the phone. The only negative is I sometimes get the app open fast enough when I receive a call, but that probably has more to do with me than the app itself.
