Latest update
by msd1957 on 2021/01/15 07:30
Not happy with latest update as it removes use of landscape mode. I prefer landscape on my iPad, need to update to give option to use in portrait or landscape. Was happy with app till this ridiculous move was made, if not able to use in landscape will delete app and subscription and get another app. What were developers thinking in undoing support for landscape mode, makes no sense.
Bring back landscape
by Chaxl74 on 2021/01/15 06:09
I love this app, but am disappointed I can’t rotate it to landscape mode with the latest version. I’m physically challenged and the wider landscape keyboard works better for me than the shrunk portraits one. I’m a regular user of the app.
Social media
by AlphaPerilous on 2021/01/14 13:54
Can the number provided from the application be used for like watsapp snapchat instagram facebook that kind of stuff you know social media? Becuase if it can this app deverses a 10 stars best app if you have a ipad to keep in touch with everyone.
A problem I found
by raupatu on 2021/01/14 00:02
So I have found a problem were when I try to text images or long texts to people it won’t work and say “Sorry, your message cannot be delivered to this number.” Can I get help with this?
Liars
by Me505987654 on 2021/01/13 22:57
Everything says FREE until you add the number then they charge you 4.99/ month even if you cancel right away. That’s pretty sketchy. I would give zero stars.
Love the app
by 02_Jess on 2021/01/13 20:38
Love this app.
Going down hill with the free version
by The critical thinker on 2021/01/12 15:20
Ads and banners now exceed over half the massage area. When you message someone, when you back out to the other messages, you get the full page ad that was just taking up half your screen. If you stay on the message and type a 2nd message, the ad takes up all but one text line at the top. And you can’t scroll it when typing. If you switch to the emoji, even that one line disappears until you switch back to text. Mostly it’s unusable anymore. At least the previous version when you were looking at a chat, the ad might drop to 1/3 screen, but now it’s useless. Probably will go to a different app or just use the adless free one that comes with the phone.
Don’t believe all the fake reviews!!
by ...Not satisfied... on 2021/01/12 14:39
Like others have said this app is now garbage. Every update, they try to find away to fit another ad in. Why would you take away the option to purchase remove ads? Not everybody needs a monthly plan subscription. The ads slow down the ap tremendously now and use a great amount of bandwidth. Look for and alternate app without so many ads. It’s understandable to have some ads to keep free, but to open the app and have to fight with all the ads is ridiculous.
fix this app
by agj200 on 2021/01/12 08:44
Why does it take so long to load up? why they double texts? Will it freeze 2 seconds after it loads? the second you try to do anything? if you manage to do all that, will the keyboard just disappear and the app freeze? just spent the last 5 minutes trying to resoond yes to a simple message but it won't load. i have plenty of space. I've deleted messages? but no says the works crappiest app
All the sudden not working

Was working great until I tried to wish my daughter and my dad a happy birthday. Now nothing....
Garbage
by Nickimccc on 2021/01/10 19:54
I don’t know how anyone could like this app. I have to watch an ad literally any time I want to read a text message or switch to a new conversation. An ad takes up literally half the screen while you’re texting. You can’t receive gifs. Videos are poor quality. Texts received or sent post twice until you exit out of the conversation, watch an ad, and then go back in. The typing often lags. I only use it to message my mom and sister that don’t have iPhones when I’m out of signal using WiFi. But honestly I could handle all of the bugs IF IT WASN’T FOR THE CONSTANT ADS! The fact I have to wait for an ad to allow me to exit it every time I try to go between conversations or read a new message is absolute garbage. And this is the sole reason I’ll be finding another messaging app. I would literally rather pay for a functional app than have to deal with this garbage.
Garbage
by CurlyHeadedBoss on 2021/01/10 19:46
This app use to be Great a few years back but now it’s nothing like before. First of all...... tooooo mannnnyyyy Addddddssssss!!!! And on top of that you have to BUY MINUTES , they do give you an option to watch there dumb ads for free minutes. Now the real reason why I’m even bothering to write a review ; I needed a new number for personal reasons and text free was the first texting app that came to mind (I haven’t used text free since 2014). Well I created a new account , and immediately tried to text and it wouldn’t let me and They kept changing my number every 2 seconds I wish i was over exaggerating but I’m not. The matter of the fact is .... THIS APP IS GARBAGE. Don’t download this ; use TextNow instead.
WAY too much bandwidth.
by DeadHorsey on 2021/01/10 06:55
I get that it’s free & needs ads, I really do. Not all of us are on unlimited data plans! 248MB for 10 minutes of texting with zero pictures or video! That’s way too much data for a few ads! Throw us all the ads you want, please cut down on how much data it needs. App runs slower and slower every update. Be sure to make those ads run well though. This app could be so much better!
Complete garbage.
by sue eva on 2021/01/10 00:36
Doesn’t work at all. At least not on my iPhone. Phone Number changed every time I opened the app. Tried paying for premium service to keep the number. Made no difference. Tried contacting support. No response after 2 days. Waste of time and money.
Crazy

How is it free if u gotta buy minutes I thought it was wifi calling
App crashes
by kk'nkk on 2021/01/09 18:47
Keeps crashing my phone and is almost unbearable to deal with all the forced ads and the ads literally back to back videos are destroying my phone please slow them down!!!!
Glitch lately
by user56788665 on 2021/01/09 14:52
I’ve watched about 4 videos to gain minutes through the app and 4x it has NOT given me anything for watching 30second long videos. That’s 4x in a row ! This has never happened before, I even use to get 2minutes at a time if the video was long. Now after I watch multiple 30second ads in a row I don’t receive ANYTHING. Please fix!!!!!! It’s becoming a waste of time and very FRUSTRATING.

Can’t Reserve a Number
by .q.w.e.r on 2021/01/09 02:29
I have used TextFree before in the past (a few years ago), and it worked really well. So, I decided to upgrade my account for the monthly subscription to reserve a number. However, when I try to change my number, I encounter a message that pops up and says, “Oops, something went wrong.” I visited the support page and I went through every troubleshooting method including deleting the app and reinstalling. None of these options resolved the issue. So, I sent an email the support center about three weeks ago explaining the issue. I have not received a response, so I sent another one today. I’m considering a request for refund, but I want to check to see if there’s another way to fix this problem. Has anyone else experienced this issue and/or resolved this issue? Thank you! iPhone 11 Pro Max Software 14.2

So it’s worked fine for me in the past but I recently downloaded it again and the number was constantly changing and everyone I got out of the app and got back into it there would be a new phone number and it was really weird
Very dissatisfied

It’s not a free number
by syphand911 on 2021/01/04 12:01
This app doesn’t provide a free number. You need to PAY. I downloaded and started to use the app as alternative number, 3 months in, the app notified me I already used up all free minutes and I need to pay if I want more minutes. The app also offer option to watch videos to get free minutes, but you need to provide email, phone number and other personal info in the process, very annoying. Conclusion: not a free number, you have to pay for your number.
Loving it

It was convenient, but now it’s just a storage stealer
by thezombiecreeper on 2020/12/31 21:06
I use this app to text and it worked fine for a while. But now, even after deleting things like useless group chats, the app takes up a whole gigabyte of storage, and I don’t even have that many contacts. What’s going on?
Good

Duplicate texts
by User Dean on 2020/12/30 06:37
Please fix it is very annoying to have many of the same text randomly appear. I have been using this app for years and have never had a problem until now. If this could be fixed it would be 4 stars because ads can get annoying sometimes, but please fix the duplicate texts because restarting and uninstalling don’t work.
Bad
by Rnoly! on 2020/12/29 03:20
Id try a lot of time and always same results. Nothing😞
Pretty bad.
by Princess donut lover on 2020/12/29 01:48
the ads are crazy! I would really like it to be a one time payment to get rid of ads, not a subscription. And I do NOT like the whole minutes thing. Also PLEASE make it so you can leave group chats! Sure you can delete the chat but then next time someone texts to it it just pops up again. I really think it could be a lot better. And it’s super glitchy and sometimes doesn’t send notifications so I miss messages.

by Mooky_the_cat on 2020/12/25 16:24
At first it was an okay app but now it is so laggy that I can’t text anyone at all. No matter how many times I refresh it the lagging keeps on and you have to watch adds to be able to call someone it’s like 1 add per minute.
Horrible

Great app years ago
by User100000 on 2020/12/24 18:08
I used to love this app but hadn’t used it in a while. Mostly because when they went from Pinger to Text Free they took away all my accumulated minutes. Went from over 1000 to zero with one update. So I stopped using it regularly. Now I come back to using the app and it is plagued with obnoxious adds. I mean nonstop adds. You can’t send a single text without an add taking over your screen. Sometimes I literally have to close the app and reopen it just to get rid of the ad and get back to the message screen. Only to send one text and have it start all over again. Now I would pay to remove apps but that is a total scam! 4.99 a MONTH! YEP!! JUST SHY OF 60 DOLLARS A YEAR!
Terrible
by jwick9113 on 2020/12/24 04:35

TextFree app is an Awesome app that can save you lots money
by Studiorich on 2020/12/23 13:17
If you have cell phone service that is pay as you go where you pay ten cents per minute you can use your new phone number from this app as a WiFi phone and enjoy unlimited voice calling and not worry about racking up minutes on your prepaid or pay as you go cell phone plan also if you live in an area with poor cell phone service but have a strong WiFi signal then you don’t have to worry anymore about dropped calls using your cell phone as you are using WiFi to make and receive calls. Note No 911 Calls can be made with this service so you must use your cell phone or land line for 911 calls. This feature full phone line comes with voicemail, text, and so much more for $4.99 per month. Calls are clear using your speaker phone and uses less power using WiFi then using a cell phone tower. Plus if you own other cell phones or iPads with no cell service they too will all work using the same local phone number just download TextFree app on all your other devices and you have phones that you can use throughout your home even on locked phones and iPads. You will not be disappointed this is one truly amazing app well worth $4.99 per month and you can try it for free if you don’t mind ads but you risk losing your phone number after 30 days. But your subscription guarantees you can keep your new phone number and is ad free.

by JayPantyDroppa on 2020/12/20 19:59
works good and app as it should , only problem i have is females wont talk to you if messages show up as green text meaning it was sent from android . it would be nice to use text free app with blue messages as if it was sent from an iphone .
Too slow bc of too many ads
by TallMan5555 on 2020/12/20 19:03
I’m using this app for a long time. But recently banner ads changed to half screen ads and app performance is coming to a halt while they’re loading! Even keyboard stops working and phone battery empties up like crazy! If you want to add more ads for your business, at least run them in worker threads so your UI thread doesn’t suffer so much.
More ads please
by Kplan23 on 2020/12/20 15:56
I’m seeing double. Old and new texts in both directions are duplicated. Another Pinger first. Please keep increasing the number, size and placement of ads. Before, during and after every action will certainly have the opposite effect of your goal which should be a reasonable balance of ads and usability. You’re at a 95% level of ads taking up screen real estate and user’s time. Please squeeze in more ads and no one will want to or be able to use this app. I understand you’re a business and need to turn a profit but you’re existence was based on non cellular iPods. They don’t exist any more. TextFree is really only useful on iPads or other tablets. A need for a website for texting died with the first smartphone. **************************************** Increasing the number and type of ads while decreasing the ability to use the app is really obnoxious at this point. Full page ad with no X. I’ve seen it in other apps too. I had to close TextFree and restart. They can plaster the app with ads but I still can’t delete more than one text at a time. Really? It was available years ago. Too many ads cause a loss in revenue when users hit the tipping point and stop using the app. You’re at that point or maybe beyond it. I never use the calling because the quality was terrible. *************************************** TextFree constantly asks for feedback even though I have the Settings on my iPhone set NOT to continue asking. So here’s my feedback. You keep covering a larger percentage of the page with a full time ad. Now about 75% up from 50%. Keep asking for feedback and cover more of the page and I’ll keep reducing the number of stars. Or stop using the app all together. That won’t help your ad revenue. Try improving the app instead. ******************** Ads a now back covering 50% of the screen. I’ve requesting multiple texts delete for years. Other texting apps have it but TextFree won’t comply. Having to delete one text at a time is time consuming which means I use TextFree infrequently. Go back to banner ads and you’ll get a star back. TextFree’s purpose has been diminished over the years as unlimited talk and text have become the norm. FaceTime on an iPad or iPod works far better than TextFree. TextFree doesn’t work with short codes very well so the major reason for using TextFree which is to hide your real number from corporate America just isn’t there. ————————————— Pinger has had a string of endless versions of Apps and confusing names over at least 7 years I’ve used Pinger. They shouldn’t be experiencing growing pains. Pinger is a legacy company and should have its act together by now. I’m still waiting on the ability to delete multiple texts at once like every other texting App can do. Since the phone numbers Pinger uses are not valid mobile numbers they don’t always work for what you need them for such as product promotions or long term communications where you don’t want your real number exposed. Phone service is hit or miss. C+ to F quality. Too much echoing, latency and dropped calls. Stick with your carrier or FaceTime audio.
Don’t waste your time it costs money
by popeyesdobetteryourappsucks on 2020/12/20 05:43

Trash
by cjtomkins on 2020/12/20 04:54
Downloaded this app and couldn’t send a single text, every number is inactive. All they want is access to your contacts and your email. Don’t use this trash can of an app.

Don’t waste your money!
by pooped0ut on 2020/12/17 03:43
Nothing but hassles rendering the app unusable. Update to developers response: “ Problem Description: Still no ability to access my “inbox” within your app after 3 weeks. During that time I’ve deleted your app twice and restarted my phone at least 3-4x’s per your instructions. I wish I knew what y’all were messaging me about. This is another fail for this app.” 12/16/20 - Update - THANKS FOR DELETING ALL OF MY MINUTES for no reason!!! I had 110 minutes and the next morning 0! Your app and service are a SCAM!

by MauiratMe on 2020/12/15 05:39
I love Pinger text free, except that most of the time I DONT get notifications and app doesn’t show number of incoming texts on icon. Since I don’t have a smart phone, I love texting on my iPad. Just wish I could hear the toilet flush(my sound with incoming texts) more often.
Amazing Amazing Amazing
by 3(5)5/() on 2020/12/14 22:58
All below WAS true! Please fix the issue where all outgoing and incoming texts are duplicated! Please fix this! PLEASE! Old Reveiw: All I can say about this app is that it is amazing. Because I use iPhone my messages don’t send through to androids and other none iPhone numbers I decided to get this app. The reviews about to many ads are ridiculous! The ads don’t get in the way of anything. This app works with minimal lag and glitches, it does sometimes take a long time to open up a conversation but that is expected with any texting app. Overall TextFree has done a really good job on their texting app and I will always use it. Thanks for the great app!!!👍
Freezing
by dhrddghji on 2020/12/14 19:27

THE BEST TESTING APP
by Shawnene22 on 2020/12/13 16:33
I’ve been looking for months for a good texting app and an finally found it. Not only does this app let you text whoever you want and it’s for free, but you can send pictures, call and the person would literally not know your using a app. Thank you for creating such a amazing app😊
Trying!

Ad app is a more proper name
by Wkkjv on 2020/12/11 18:26
AVOID AVOID AVOID!! One star because I can’t give it less. If you want to see ads, this is the app for you. Want to open a text but tricked into opening an ad, this is the app for you. Think you want to look at the newest text that came in, but prefer a full page ad that you can’t close until after a set amount if time has elapsed, this is the app for you. I mistakenly updated the app. This app has added full page pop up ads to the mix, on top of the already 1/2 plus of the screen covered with apps. Also, you can never fully delete your texts. The app stores them on your device even after you delete them. As the memory gets full, the only way to fully delete/remove the old stuff is to uninstall and the reinstall this app. Unfortunately, this gives you the latest version. Early versions of this app were useful. The latest is useless...unless you like ads.

I’m new to this app and trying to sign up to make an account but unfortunately it just gives me a notification that it “couldn’t sign up” no matter what phone number I choose or email I use :(
Keeps freezing up
by Krcecil on 2020/12/08 21:42
Can’t even type a 4 letter word without the app freezing up for seconds at a time. Two stars for the freezing and for the lying comments about this being a good app, because they were clearly wrong. Good apps don’t constantly freeze when you type one letter at a time. Fix or the stars go to 1 since I can’t give a 0 star rating.

Ugh..
by AngelMermade gacha girl on 2020/12/05 13:51
Honestly I mostly wait at least a week to rate apps but it’s my third day using this app and I hate it it has way to many adds like for example theirs an add at the bottom of my screen on my contact list and a pop up add every time I send a messege also after someone sends a messege the keyboard will disappear and when you type it freezes and un freezes like way to often and half the time the messeges don’t even send please if your looking for a quick easy app this is not the way to go

THEY SPAM YOUR NUMBER
by my4crows on 2020/12/03 22:21
Do NOT go with these people! They have spammed every single contact I have! Before doing so, they will ask you to “rate”, then you find out that they’ve spammed all of your contacts to other countries.
Don’t try the app if you aren’t in the u.s or countries like it.

This app is harable download text now! It’s way better!!! This app only lets you call every 10 minutes and they lied! You have to have service or WiFi! But they said you don’t need service yeah right! I deleted this app👍 hope you guys do too! Have a good day
People aren’t receiving any of my text!!
by SourClouds on 2020/12/01 14:01
This app has been around waaaay too long for bugs like this. I feel like the developers are toying with users of this app. Causing bugs where you can’t receive calls so you have to use up all your minutes, and not letting your text go through to whoever it is you’re texting.
Terrible
by J Cales on 2020/11/30 23:59
Each time I choose a number it tells me that the number has been inactive too long and I need to choose a new number, even after paying for a subscription. This app has been completely unusable.
Yessss
by sarashannon8 on 2018/03/05 04:22
Yessss Get this app if you have an iPod, iPad, or iPhone that has been shut off your provider. As for me, I have two iPods and an iPhone that has been shut off the provider. I linked all of them under the same account. I can text as (724) ***-**** and nobody knows that I don't actually have a phone!!! This app is perfect and has no flaws, unless you have absolutely no tolerances for ads. The ads only pop up at the bottom of your screen AFTER you send a message. It's not too bad. I usually can't stand ads, but this doesn't interfere with the quality of the app. You can also, if you double-text, click the little "x" in the corner of the ad to view the keyboard again. You get your notifications as always. Text free also can text you personally when you have updates or to remind you that if your phone number isn't used within a certain amount of time, it will be given to someone else. But anyone that uses this app usually uses it frequently and doesn't have the issue. It only happened to me a few years back when I only got the app to text my mom for a busy month, and right after that I didn't use it. I got a new number, with ease, and now I can use it any time I wish. You may also reserve your number for a small fee. For free you may record your own voicemail. You may also choose your own ringtone, and on Androids you can use your pre-installed ringtones on your device. I recommend this app to anyone. Please download this app if the above criteria relates to you.
TextFree app is an Awesome app that can save you lots money
by Studiorich on 2020/12/23 13:17
If you have cell phone service that is pay as you go where you pay ten cents per minute you can use your new phone number from this app as a WiFi phone and enjoy unlimited voice calling and not worry about racking up minutes on your prepaid or pay as you go cell phone plan also if you live in an area with poor cell phone service but have a strong WiFi signal then you don’t have to worry anymore about dropped calls using your cell phone as you are using WiFi to make and receive calls. Note No 911 Calls can be made with this service so you must use your cell phone or land line for 911 calls. This feature full phone line comes with voicemail, text, and so much more for $4.99 per month. Calls are clear using your speaker phone and uses less power using WiFi then using a cell phone tower. Plus if you own other cell phones or iPads with no cell service they too will all work using the same local phone number just download TextFree app on all your other devices and you have phones that you can use throughout your home even on locked phones and iPads. You will not be disappointed this is one truly amazing app well worth $4.99 per month and you can try it for free if you don’t mind ads but you risk losing your phone number after 30 days. But your subscription guarantees you can keep your new phone number and is ad free.

by BRIT ICONZ on 2018/03/17 22:05
This is been a success story also a struggle story me as the reviewer have been using Textfree for over six years close to seven and when I had no way to have a phone service from my iPhone I was able to always have access to people calling me and having textWhich it being a American app I had no idea I’d be able to use it in Europe where I went and subsequently suffered a heart attack still having no phone service tax-free had allowed me to call and text my friends and family in the USA with no extra surcharge and really no problem this was a great thing now if this doesn’t come with the bells and whistles but it still was pretty forward thinking for time it came out it’s still one of the originals and one thing about it it’s stable sometime to glitches but it’s stable overall and I’ve still been able to use it we talking about six years of service that I use pretty much every day I am an original thank you tax-free you really helped me expand on so many things and yes I do have phone service now but I still use this as one of my secondaryNumbers one of the best apps ever invented because it works
Glitchy, freezes, auto directs to safari/appstore
by BRO 77 on 2019/09/22 06:18
When I click the message it will often freeze up and I will have to close out the app, double click home, swipe up, and then restart the app literally 4-5 times before I can click one of the messages and it'll take me to the message. When I type it will often freeze up so I can type or mid typing it'll freeze and unfreeze so I'll type one part of a word and finish the last half of a word or two later and then I'll have to use auto correct and rewrite the couple words it froze for. Sometimes it will take me to the message and the box to text won't even be on the messaging screen and I'll have to close out and reload the app for it to go back to normal but then the when I do it freezes up and I have to close and reload it a couple more times to get it to unfreeze. Sometimes it'll take me to safari or the app store even if I didn't click the ads, and no my finger doesn't slip and accidentally click the ads, it just does it by itself sometimes. I'll sometimes have the text box glitched out at the very top of the screen so I can't see the other person's message, or the text bar will just be frozen 3/4s from the bottom inbetween the ad that's covering up half the screen and the top. Paying to get rid of the ads may help with the ad related glitches, but it won't help with the rest of the glitchyness with the app, my advice would be to GET ANY OTHER TEXTING APP!
Used to be great, now it’s just intrusive ads.
by llortretsam on 2020/09/30 22:24
As the title states, this app used to be great, but they did an update that slows it all down by displaying a huge ad everytime you go to the app to respond to a message . The old version had ads, a banner across the bottom and ads that would look like texts, but now it freezes the whole screen for a full page, intrusive ad that ruins the whole experience. Look elsewhere there are hundreds of other apps that have less ads and work better. UPDATE: after reading similar canned responses from this company regarding why they choose to continue intrusive ads, I strongly recommend ANY other texting app available. They will be FAR better. AND THEY SELL YOUR INFO TO SCAMMERS, THUS THE THOUSANDS OF ROBO CALLS. They give the typical greedy response “ it’s free ads are how we make money” they make plenty with the ads they had before, now introduced huge intrusive ones to “coerce” you into paying for their premium service...at that cost, just go to metro pcs. UPDATE 2: after more canned responses from them most seem very catty and pretty condescending rather than actually admitting mistakes of the company they also toss out “pandemic” excuses. Everyone seems to have the same issue, they made plenty of money from the non intrusive ads, before they had even less users...so I don’t buy that excuse for a second. With the latest update they also blocked texted verification for specific sites.
Great free App
by Mmcvey98 on 2019/05/27 18:11
Best free app for texting for when you need another number. I hope that none of you ever have to have another number for the reasons that I have had to. The only complaint I have is the fact that you have to buy minutes and the cost but on the same token with that; If someone tries to call the number you have the option to have a call go directly to voicemail, so if the Caller leaves a voicemail you can still get the communication, along with the ability of an automatic text response to let them know that you cannot receive telephone calls on that number and make them aware of that fact. So I still give it five stars despite the downfall of having to buy minutes. They give you some free minutes to start, and methods/other ways to gain free minutes IF you want to take the time to go through all of the surveys and marketing etc. When I have used the actual calling function of the app, the quality has been great. So overall for being a free app I give it five thumbs up :-)
unlimited talk+text to any phone number regardless if they are a text now user or not
by Graceland kelly on 2020/04/09 17:52
okay so i’ve tried talkatone and almost every free calling and texting app out there but i always come back to this one.. one thing i love about talkatone that this app lacks is that talkatone you only need the calling “ credits “ for international calling... on that app you can send unlimited texts and calls to anyone without calling minutes... regardless if they have the app or not and i LOVE this app but i do think that dark mode should come to this app it would be BEAUTIFUL i’d suggest also “ read receipts “ and i think we should have unlimited text and calls... the calling credits should just be for international calling..so basically we just have unlimited texting and calling to any number regardless if they have this app or not with ads to keep it free just like the talkatone app does!!! other than the whole calling minutes thing that’s the ONLY thing i don’t like other than that this app is amazing and the best of the best but please give us dark mode and give us unlimited free calling i’d appreciate it! and so would do many other people!!!

by FBIMANSr on 2019/09/18 10:37
I enjoy the text free app and calling like watching the adds even joined a few to help with free minutes although it requires internet to use phone and text I really appreciate it helps me very much I have told several of my friends about the App and If you are down on your luck or just can’t afford a phone bill, try the text free app , watch a few adds get minutes for phone you can pick your own number, from an available list of numbers , and you are back in Buisness, yes it requires you to use WiFi! But so far my quality of call’s have been good ,and best of all as long as you use your phone a few times a month you can keep your number, and if you do need to change your number ! Well you simple request for a new number and you can change it and you can even keep your unused minutes!! Wow how great is that ? If after all I have just told you how great text free phone and text app is and you don’t get it , then you just don’t need a phone ! I Love it
5 years, 5 stars
by cobalionandzelda43210 on 2018/06/01 13:13
I have had this app for 5 years (yes, 5 years) so it is imperative that I write a review! I got this app when I started college and did not have phone service yet, and I used it for over a year constantly. I've kept it ever since, and I still have the phone number that I started with. I moved to a rural area, where getting cell service is nearly impossible, and this app came in handy for actually being able to talk on the phone without needing to be in specific corner of the house or outside. This is the best free texting and calling app I've ever found. There are, of course, things that annoy me (like the amount of ads, not being able to make calls for free and only receive them, and the phone number going away if you haven't used it in a while). This is a completely free app, though, so I couldn't be happier. If you want more capabilities, you could either pay for the app or pay for phone service. For everything that this app does, I can't help but to give it 5 stars.
Can I give it 7 stars?
by Zimukusa on 2018/08/25 00:36
Okay, so let’s ignore the fact that three of us in the company mis-dialed the number and that was the problem, not actually a bug... 🤦‍♀️ ...when I reached out to the app developer I half expected no response as I’ve had really negative experiences before with other app developers. We were getting messages that our number had been disconnected despite having paid for the number (again, this was entirely user error as we were misdialing but didn’t realize til later). Frustrated, I sent about 5 messages in quick succession. Got a response within an hour of my first message from someone who clearly knew to calm me down and get tech support. (Instant 3 stars). Tech support tried calling and it worked for them but not for us. Tech support escalated the ticket to second level and provided frequent updates as we were dealing with different time zones (4.5 stars) Second level tech asked for some basic info and quickly spotted the one digit we were dialing incorrectly. (5 stars) I wish I could give two more stars to make it seven, cas I know from many tech friends that these kind of basic errors are ridiculous, but both tech support and second level tech were so good humored about it, I could almost hear the chuckling through their emails as I gulped in horror. (It’s been a rough week, I knew there’d be an error somewhere!) Truly appreciate the highly professional and good humored support on this app. Seven stars if I could give them!
Used to work
by 26atom on 2018/04/25 02:57
I used this app quite a bit. The old version worked beautifully. There were ads, but they weren't intrusive. For some reason I couldn't transfer my old number to my new iPad so i downloaded this new abomination. I was hit by 2 ads immediately. I also cant find Where to re-add ANY contacts. The intuitive usage is hidden. I have an update to add to this review. Now that i have used it for a few weeks there is one HUGE NUISANCE that has been included in the update. The ads now replace some of your contacts, crowding out your numbers. How did the EVER allow this? Also, there are ZERO ways to delete them. Someone left me a voicemail in error and i am unable to get their erroneous call out of my contacts. There used to be an "erase conversation" button, which because you now must scroll through ads, has completely disappeared. Ive been using the new updates for some time now. I’m convinced the numbers have been sold, as i now receive a robocall every 30 minutes and obscene messages daily. I’m looking for a better app. I would never recommend anyone download this. They offer no way to block or erase incoming calls, causing your contacts to be lost far down the list. Its truly awful.
Text free
by BSmooth512 on 2019/05/01 21:03
Best VoIP App ever. Love the service and most of all the best deal ever. Why? Because it's the best and cheapest service to sign up with if one wants to have phone service at your convenience. In addition, Thanks to Text free I survived with out phone service for three month and they didn't pressure me to sign up. As result can't wait until I sign up for the service as as form of appreciation. In addition this is now what I call greatest cp service of all time. With great concept while enhancing technology by providing optimal solution when needed. Thank you so much cuz you Rock Textfree...and most of all I use your service as my primary iT service for my company as well. Reason - if I’m not available then the customer can even leave vm even when I’m off line. As result what an amazing/brilliant technology. Much love and respect Goes our to the creator of your organization and employees as well. Thank You Everyone... BCS inc.
Not A Good App Anymore
by Jonathen_crow on 2017/12/05 05:32
I’ve seen countless people complaining about their issues with this app. Mostly that they’re able to send text messages but not receive them. And I’ve also seen that through my own efforts their response team for help is completely unresponsive. In a lot of places on the website you’ll see that they take a short time to respond, but in reality they take upwards of weeks, it’s been several weeks since I submitted my first request and I still have no response. Most other people cannot find responses, or solutions to their problems. They seem unwilling to respond anyone that is not buying credits. This was once a good app, really great for people who possibly lived in bad areas were their Wi-Fi was stronger than their cell phone signal. And were unable for whatever reason to use their actual cell phone services to contact other people. It used to be really great especially when you were trying to do multiple things at once, or you were unsure of someone having your real number. Now it’s not worth the amount of time it takes to download.
Why I like and possibly love fried okra
by Jengih on 2020/06/19 04:17
I would like to share with you my honest and overwhelming feelings for fried okra. It’s something I have harbored inside of me since I was a child. I have never shared these feelings to anyone before now and I wish you could understand to what depth these happy sensations of love and warmth battered in a perfect amount of coziness and placed in my grandmothers perfectly seasoned skillet. A skillet that has the unbelievable amount of exact proportions of normalcy’s a child needs. I grew into the person I am today bc of that skillet and I am able to give and show love because of all those perfect little pieces of fried okra. I’m just pulling your chain!!! What in the world am I even talking about!!! But in a serious note...this APP is AWESOME!!! Love it!!! It could t be any better and I want to say thank you to everyone that has had anything to do with it:) Have a wonderful night and smile bc Text Free App is my fried okra😉
* Love It * Easy to Use * Super Convenient *
by Cass 7678 on 2019/03/21 04:12
I’m generally not the type to use an app like this (40 year old, woman, with a home phone & cell phone). But, I recently decided to shop around for cell service to save some money. I canceled my current service, planning to switch providers the following day. Then I saw a few more ads & decided to hold off to do more research. That was great until I realized I had no method to text certain friends & family. This was the first app I found in my search, so I signed up (not expecting much). To my surprise, it’s been super easy to use. I really loved that I was able to pick my own, local number. After that, I was able to start texting right away. The return texts came back quickly & there was no noticeable delay in speed. I would definitely recommend this app. I’ve been using it for a few days now & am very pleased with everything.
True Story ...
by T0Ne3e on 2017/10/17 22:51
I own a iTouch 5th Gen, Current Mini iPad & iPad Pro. When I discovered your App on the online store and tried it out for a week without adding any of the subscriptions to do a little App Test Drive, I knew right away Textfree was an App paying subscriptions for. It’s Easy, Works with all my gadgets, and I can keep in touch everyday all day with everyone I know. Before Textfree, I used an old Flip Phone for my communications and it SUCKED. It was ancient, I haven’t seen anyone flip anything for anything in our present time and I wasn’t a fan of Contract Mobile Carriers, I did good with what I had though. TEXTFREE is 👍🏼 GREAT ! Voicemail to Text feature is the best feature E V E R ! It’s changed the way I communicate from not caring to caring. I recommend TEXTFREE to Everyone Out There. I haven’t had any issues and App is up to date and running smoothly all the time so Thank you everyone at Pinger.
Personal Fav
by Winterstone007 on 2018/09/19 10:21
I am truly grateful of all that is allotted to me by this app and its creators n maintainers 🙏🏻 I have been using it, with the same uninterrupted or changed contact, for nearly a decade. It has saved me so much money and headache. I have been able to contact when no phone services work via WiFi. I have never had an issue to even need to contact customer service; if there even is one, lol. That is ‘top notch’ status quality to me. Not to mention being able to connect and utilize from any device that downloads apps or gets internet access. I hope to continue for another decade and beyond as the world moves more towards this kind of platforms. Thank you to all that are involved with this project for the outstanding results and complete privacy and anonymity (unless I myself connect me.) 💜🙏🏻👍🏻🤗
Need to know!!!!
by savannah shelly on 2020/11/24 20:59
OK so…… You need to know that: you only have a certain amount of minutes to call with, and when those minutes run out you have to pay to get more! So annoying! When I first got this app I loved it because my dad has a galaxy 11 phone and since I have an iPod I cannot text him with my normal texting app! So I’ve been texting on it for about a year now, and I normally only text him I don’t really call him. But then one day I tried to call him and my iPod hung up immediately! Then a robot voice said,” you do not have any more minutes to call with. You will have to go to get more minutes and buy more minutes to call again!” And the thing was, I hadn’t even called a lot! They do not give you enough minutes in the first place to start with! Also, if you don’t use this app to text consistently, your number gets taken away from you! Are you serious! I don’t understand it. My normal texting app does not do that with me, and I am very mad about this one. And it’s very glitchy and it freezes a lot! OK……… I know I’ve been speaking bad about this app, but it is a horrible app! But, if you’re looking for an app that you are going to consistently text weird and not call, this is the app for you Note to makers of this app: Please improve this! I will soon delete this app because of this flaw! I would not recommend this app to anyone else because of this flaw! I am sorry about it, but people have to know.😬
Please listen
by Andrew1243 on 2018/08/29 21:34
I had this app for a while, pretty good, then I decided to try TextMe, but I deleted and got this one again. I like this app, but Sometimes it can be a little slow and I have to reopen it, please fix. And I think you should make calls better speed and quality, please fix this and I will stay by your side. Andrew, I apologize for wasting your time further but, if I delete the app and reinstall, can I resume the use of my old number and keep all of the contacts that I had previously? It seems like an unnecessary amount of work to delete it and have to get all of my contacts back. I have a fairly large amount of contacts. Regardless, thank you for your patience. I will continue to use the app with a five star review for support.
Great app
by JF0333 on 2018/01/12 19:31
This is one app that really is free! Yes, you can purchase minutes if you want, but you can also watch a few short (very short) videos and in return, you are credited minutes on your account, which you only need if you want to make an actual phone call - texting is free. The only downside to using this app is that not all SMS text messages are accepted by this app.....certain one time codes that a company sends you in order for you to complete their sign-up/account confirmation process, are not recognized and therefore will not come through using the phone number that you are given/chose when using this app. I think this is an area that the app developers are working on, so hopefully the list of comparable SMS texts grows soon. Otherwise, this is a solid app that works great!
I cannot have a standby number
by pleazando0611 on 2019/11/28 11:53
Hello pinger, i am a huge fan of your app, TextFree I used it the first time and it was okay, in less than 2 weeks I had about 200 call units. I logged out my account from my iPhone, trying to login back I cannot. The app says my number has expired and incorrect password, I tried to recover my password through my verified email address it didn’t work out. I have been using same number to call and text friends in the United states, I deleted the app loaded it again to my phone but each time I get a new number, when I logout our of the app the number disappears and changes to a new one, and this is a routine thing that happen anytime I logout of the app and try to log back in. Even when I don’t logout but close the app, when I try to open it again the number changes. Pls try and fix it as soon as possible. This is my email. Looking forward to hearing from you. Thanks
Why I love Text Free
by AshelyMacyMcmullen on 2018/06/09 11:18
I always wanted to text and I never got to text free is a really nice app Because you could pretty much text your Friends and family members I know this because I’ve always wanted to text and I never really got to so it’s like a new beginning really kind of because I could finally text so I really enjoy it and I suggest You get it because it’s really fun to text to people. And it’s why you should get it it’s really fun so whoever made it shout outs to you you are the best and this app is free no money just have to set it up and then you can text! I hope you buy this app is an amazing app and I just really love it are you a five star review because it is her of that so, I think you should buy it. That is why I think this app should get a five star review I do you should buy it.
Nice so far
by CjayDk on 2020/02/25 13:05
I switched back to this texting app after the one I had been using for many years updated to unusable, at least by my account, and from what I have read to many others. This app does what I need, just plain old texting from my iPad. I do not and most likely never will use the phone feature. I like that the ads are not blatant, I can see them, but they are not in the way of my texting. It is a nice easy to use app. The 4 stars are because there is a word count so if I get too wordy I have to go back and edit what I have written. I did not have that on the other app.. Also there is nothing I have seen that tells me that my text has been delivered or at least sent, I would like to see that feature in an update if possible.
Was charged day after subscription canceled and deleted.

I contacted your help desk, although I’m skeptical after this stunt,To request a refund. I usually use Google Voice and was locked out of my account. I reserved the phone number through text free and hadn’t even used it. That was about 4 days ago and yesterday when I regained access to my Google Voice the first thing I did was cancel my subscription in Settings in my iPhone and all look to be successful it was no longer there. Then today I get notified through my bank that I was charged by you to reserve the number and it is showing back up active in my subscriptions. And I know that I canceled the subscription correctly and it was gone. It’s only $4.99 and that isn’t the issue. The issue is I was charged after cancelling. If you were to charge me it should have been at sign up. Very fishy. And the transaction is pending. It’s not as though you charged days ago and now it hit. Please rectify this situation because it is wrong and bad business.
Decent app
by shivrs01 on 2017/12/13 09:38
I’ve used this app for quite some time over different versions of the iPhone. Overall, I am happy with it and would recommend it. A couple improvements that I think would be great to see. First, some additional ringtones. The current ones sound a bit outdated, like ones that were on my Motorola Razr back in the day. Second, I understand this app is supported by ads but it would be neat to see them less intrusive. By this I mean it would be helpful if the ads did not become a larger size once you click send on a message. If you’re having a conversation and sending multiple messages back and forth, the larger ads get annoying and do get in the way. I would have no issue with the banner size ads at the bottom (like the size when you are typing out a message before pushing send).
Great App! Have used it for over two years, but...
by S.R. Rabbit on 2019/07/25 05:30
I've actually used this app multiple times, due to a damaged battery port on my previous iPad. Lol. I love using TextFree and recommend it to anyone who complains about their cell phones or minutes. However, there is one problem that just started July 23/24, around midnight. Right now, I'm using it to text my romantic other. We were discussing something important, but then I didn't get a response. It turns out the text I know I sent was never received. I had to text it to them again. I worry this will continue to happen. So I told them I may have to duplicate my texts to make certain they receive them. I don't know if it's on their end or not. If it is something to do with the app, though, please fix it.
Not how it used to be
by frankiemills61 on 2019/04/21 18:58
This app has some good features, but now days it’s really annoying. I get emails daily. I get random calls when only a few people have the number, and they didn’t give it out. When you go into the area to view your calling minutes, there’s ways to earn minutes that don’t even work. I’ve done 3 things recently that were supposed to give me a lot of minutes, and they never changed. I only have 12 and should have about 200. This is very frustrating for me, because their programs don’t work. Also, you used to be about to watch videos and get 2 minutes, now you only receive one. That’s a lot of long videos to watch to only receive 1 minute. 2 wasn’t ideal either, but it was way better than 1. I’ve been using Pinger/TextFree off and on for years and years. It’s just going downhill and is less reliable. My old account had 500 calling minutes cause it would actually work
works amazingly well
by Rabbi Phillip Picasso on 2020/02/07 05:04
Best free texting app out there with a few glitches once in awhile. If I’m texting a LOOOOONG text, after awhile the letters of the keyboard get ‘stuck’ and are showing on the screen ‘3D’ and the other letters will stop responding. The app is amazingly reliable and I am glad to click on the advertising a lot to keep it free. I have had it now for several weeks and have not had any serious issues besides the ‘keys stuck in 3D mode’ issue which I don’t know what to call it. Also sending and receiving pictures some time freezes up the app, just a note for the glitch team and not a complaint. The app is reliable and I only wish there was a locking way on IPhone 7 so I could hide the app.
Mostly positive with a few cons
by maxcess on 2020/06/03 17:49
Like the app a lot! Ben using it for couple of years. It has almost all the features as your actual phone like calling, texting (pictures / videos), and voicemail(even voicemail in text). Couple of cons that I have experienced is that it drains my battery super fast so if I’m not home or near a charging station, I’d think twice about using it. Also, it freezes sometimes but not often. Finally, you can not turn the notification off for the incoming calls. Even if notifications for the app is completely turned off, you won’t see the text messages but if someone calls you, it will still comes through. I’m not sure if it’s a glitch or is just how it works given it’s using your cellular data. Would like to know if there is a solution for that.
Best For Preteens Or Younger Even Older!
by Speedy 409 on 2017/11/21 02:30
I’ve used this app at the age of 10 and am still using today to talk to my friends,family, and sometimes pizza delivery (just kidding I don’t know if they have that feature but I hope they do). Great for those who don’t want an actual phone or doesn’t have one at the moment also for the ones who don’t like mobile companies that will rather stick to WiFi, but here’s why I give it a 4. There are two essential things you guys have to do that bug me! limit ads because every time every 15-30 seconds I see an ad pop up it’s not that annoying but I would love to see less. 2, from the day I got the app I’m not sure if this feature is there and that feature is groups! I haven’t seen or know how to do it please help and thanks if you read it have a good day
Text free App
by Reba1949 on 2019/07/11 19:00
Want to take a moment to say how great this app is for me. I started out wanting this app because I didn't have unlimited text on my phone at the time. Then I bought minutes and decided to use this phone number to keep from using my main phone number. I have had this number for about 3 years now and I've seen them improve over this time. Text free is a great app and I plan to keep it forever. I have tried other texting apps but in my opinion, they're not that great. I give this app 5 stars. Also, whenever I contact customer service, they are "Johnny on the spot" in getting back to me and handling my requests. I love them. 👍🏾 Thanks Textfree. Your the best😍 Past that, there is nothing left to say.👍🏾😍
Perfect for my needs
by Windbear2525 on 2018/03/28 19:46
I’ve found Textfree to be the best free text app out there even though it has a few glitches. I switched over from Talkatone when an update made it no longer compatible. I then tried a few other free apps which didn’t even compare to Talkatone’s quality. Textfree came close to Talkatone ‘s quality at the time, but had a few major glitches such as occasional dropped or unreceived messages, messages which were limited in size, sent out of order, etc. But most of those issues have been corrected by updates and patches over time, making Textfree the best free chat app I’ve found. It is now about 98% dependable in both transmission and receiving with an occasional (rare) dropped message. There are often noticeable delays in transmitting. One thing I wish Textfree would allow are Bitmojis since I love using them. For some reason, I can’t get them to work. I also wish there were a way to create group chat/mailing to send the same message to more than one person at time. There may be a way, but I haven’t figured it out. Other than that, Textfree works great for my needs! And, it IS free!
Garbage
by 🌷Kaitlyn💕 on 2018/02/14 20:32
Too many ads popping up and too many advertisement banners. Then, every couple days they send you a text message warning that you will lose your phone number if you're not constantly texting with it. Also, they want way too much money to remove the advertisements and/or to keep your phone number. I'm an adult and I was trying to use this app to conduct some business, but unfortunately, this app is more of a novelty item. It's not a professional solution. It's for children who have an iPod and no phone, so they can text & talk from it. Also, i tried to earn some free minutes by doing their surveys. I wasted at least 25 minutes on numerous surveys, answering a ton of questions, only to be told that “this survey is not a good match for you”. Unfortunately, I wasted valuable time and got nothing in return. This app is definitely not for adults. If you are an adult, avoid this app. It's not worth the aggravation.
Best Emergency Resource!
by LoveLoveTina on 2020/03/30 14:05
I am so grateful you exist! My iPhone suddenly broke. Then SIM card drama, add to that all the carriers with specific rules! My friend gave me his iPhone 8 to replace mine. Only it was AT&T phone. I’ve been with Boost for 6+ years but they don’t accept this carrier. I seriously gave up for weeks! Considered it an unplanned unplugging vacay. THEN!!!! I randomly remembered your app from years ago, downloaded it onto the new iPhone (everything else worked but texts & calls) & within 2 minutes I was sending texts. No lengthy sign up, no contract, no hidden agenda. And bonus~didn’t realize app offers limited free phone calls as well. So super huge thank you for making something that should be easy, actually easy!
5 Stars!
by Eisrs on 2019/07/22 02:23
I enjoy this app so much! One of my friends mentioned it to me when I told them I couldn't use my phone's built-in app. I was surprised that it would work this well! I love this app because you can actually PICK the number you use. This is great because if you have a hard time remembering certain things, you can look through and choose the easiest one for you. All of the contacts I have for Text free have a different phone than me. Even though they do, I can still text them really easily. But, I realized that the emoji selection is different from the actual iPhone selection. When another person texts one that you don't have, a little box with a question mark pops up instead. I have trouble with this sometimes because I can't tell which one it is. This is the main problem I have in Text free. Lagging. Sometimes it lags worse than others, but it almost always lags some. I can type fast, so if I do, it's not as bad. I don't know if it's just my device because it's so old, or what. Does it happen for everyone? Or just me? Overall this app is great! One of the best I've ever found!
Minor improvements would make this app great
by AnKa12685 on 2018/07/28 15:49
The app is good but could use improvement. 1. It would be great to know if someone has read the message. It use to show a check mark but that option has disappeared a while back with one of the updates. 2. It’s crazy how many messages never get delivered and neither party knows seeing how you can’t tell what was read 3. Pictures!! When you click on the picture weather you go to save it or just see it, when you get out it always takes you to the very end of the conversation. It would be nice to see the the option of a gallery collection or a way to just scroll through the pictures alone. On Kik you clicked on the picture and you’re able to swipe left and right to go through the photos that are in your current conversation
Works Well. Amazing App
by SoItsJessiie on 2020/09/19 22:07
I’ve been using this app for the past few days & it works amazing. I can send pictures & messages with no problem as well as receiving them. I was a little worried because I heard many things about this app good & bad but it has been working amazing for me. I used this same app awhile back when I didn’t have a phone. I use it now for my business. I sell cars & didn’t want to always give out my personal number. I’m happy that I can use this as if it was an actual phone number. Going to continue seeing how it works & if it continues I’ll be joining their subscription. Also the ads aren’t bad like other text apps that are constantly popping up ads.
Simple clean interface, Easy to get minutes
by Skipee McGee on 2017/12/24 01:52
I figure most people only take the time out of their day to type a review if they want to complain about something, so I’d like to propose an alternative. I think Textfree is an excellent app for several reasons; the interface is convenient and simple to understand, the ads are minimalist and in intrusive by modern standards, and its super easy to acquire free minutes. Also I’ve spotted the devs actually replying to some reviews, which is fairly rare too I can tell you. Overall Textfree is a great version (probably the best) of a very useful service of which there are many competitors. Just wanted to give a shout out to people actually putting out good software.
Saved me and has nice features!
by JTinSouthNJ on 2018/01/19 05:11
If we all had continuous (free) WiFi , this would totally replace everyone’s current relationship with their current carriers! It’s got a load of options for ring tones and let’s you choose your own phone # (mine ended with the year I was born)! The calls sound clear and the texts arrive instantly. It allows you to send photos and videos and you will forget you even switched to Text Free. It’s a Godsend truly when another carrier (FreedomPop) kept my # after a free trial and wasn’t nearly as efficient and impressive as Text Free is!! And I only would have saved $10 with them per month and the calls were dropped and photos arrived hours later and you could only reach them by email. I lost my # after having it almost 20 years but I didn’t care cause Text Free had my back and saved the day!! Now I can talk to my family and friends again finally and have reliable fast user friendly service plus they let you earn FREE minutes to make outgoing calls. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!! Much LOVE AND GRATITUDE! Sincerely, Jereme Benyola NJ, USA
Okay this app is total scam
by Torhuu1 on 2018/10/21 08:31
I downloaded this app, because I am in foreign country now and 1st I wanted to earn my mins, just to make sure app works. So I accepted this earn mins buy playing coin master. 1st of all I didn’t want to spent money before trying it. my plan was to earn mins and see if it work great then I will buy mins. So I earned 67 mins for playing game for 3 days, but I never got my mins and it is still missing. I tried reaching out, they were keep letting me respond to this automated emails back n forth then they just disappeared. I tried emailing to costumer service many times. Then I was like ok never mind and try buying the mins. They charged my card and the mins was never added into my account. So I had to call Apple to cancel my last purchase from this app. Such a scam. They just try money thru app and by make us download it. This is not legit app. Please at least have some business manner, stop wasting people’s time.
Used to be a great app
by Original D. Wade on 2018/09/22 00:06
I’ve used this app as a secondary number for almost 10 years now and I have watched it deteriorate slowly. The two main issues I have now are that : 1. When using the calling service it places numbers in my call list and when receiving calls through the app it rings through my native phone without any way of stopping it even if notifications for the app are off. 2. All of sudden when making calls the first song from my music list plays in the background. Needless to say that I waste the call minute and there seems to be no way of stopping it. It has come time for me to seek another better working app elsewhere. I called and emailed tech support and no solutions were offered just meaningless apologies. Still great for texting but don’t pay for minutes.
Great but oof 😣
by Pamollope on 2020/07/05 23:36
Eh ok so first of all this app is awesome, I can text all I want without limits. But when I call.... OK so the quality of the call is ok but when they don’t pick up and the thing at the end where it tells you to send a voicemail lasts six seconds, it takes away a whole minute! And I didn’t even leave a voicemail!!! The minutes are also so hard to get, like it takes forever for the option to watch a video pops up, but the videos are really short so thank you for that. Ugh 😑 the minutes are just really annoying. And the ads after you send a message just take over the whole bottom half of the screen! That parts not so bad though. Please try to fix these issues! And please respond!
4 because.......
by ykwtfgo818 on 2019/04/14 09:42
It always since day one rob me of my minutes out of nowhere. Happened on two separate occasions. Second thing it’s so glitchy or something cause I get messages late or never receive them...sounds and is strange to me because several friends showed me on their cellphones...not a well written experience for you guys but hey I have an issue it may be my own issue either way after having this app on and off for the past 5 years if I’m not mistaken just look in to it and fix it if there is an issue discovered if there isn’t one you have the right to simply tell me it’s you not us...too lazy to grammar check it I finally wrote you guys and rated this app after ignoring it for so many years ok that’s it...
poor communication + becoming horrible app
by Y$wajjur on 2018/09/23 16:01
I’ve used this app for about 2 years now, and when you complete offers for minutes it’s literally wasting your time and storage. You have to download apps just for the minutes, sometimes deleting the apps you already have depending your storage then when you complete said app, NO MINUTES GOES TO YOUR ACCOUNT. When you reach out to the developers, they won’t only not reply to you, but they won’t even reconcile for time wasted on apps. I prefer to have a decent amount of minutes to make calls in regards to work, and when I complete a task, I expect to have those minutes I chose. But not only do I not have those minutes, I also have a company not replying or giving some type of feedback when I reach out to let them know the situation. Great for texting, but calling? No way 2/10.
Great app!
by MoonShadow78 on 2018/08/31 07:08
Now I’m not normally one to write reviews on ANYTHING, but I felt compelled to do so on this one as it has been amazing thus far. There hasn’t been any bugs or noticeable issues with service since I’ve downloaded it. Yes, there are ads, but to me it’s a small price to pay in order to have a way to stay in touch with older family members who aren’t tech-savvy & don’t want the complications of a cell phone service. It also allows me to stay in touch with my young son while I’m away from him without having to pay for monthly phone service when all he & I do is text occasionally. Thank you Text Free for providing us all with the ability to stay connected without the hassle (and MONEY) of a cell phone carrier bill!!!
Very good
by Tiffanymz3029 on 2020/04/25 16:38
Great app! Totally worth it if you can’t text. I recently had my actual text app deleted because it stopped working and textfree was there to help so I didn’t have to stop texting my friends. Very great, ads aren’t really a problem on here I do have a huge problem with ads but they aren’t bad here. I love it. I do have a phone like actual phone but the texts stopped working. I’m so glad textfree was ever created! Great job developers! It’s incredible and super useful. Only thing: WiFi, I have WiFi at my house but not anywhere I go. So fix that. Other then the WiFi issue I’d say this game deserves 5 complete stars!!!! Wonderful and please keep up the good work!
Garbage
by Nickimccc on 2021/01/10 19:54
I don’t know how anyone could like this app. I have to watch an ad literally any time I want to read a text message or switch to a new conversation. An ad takes up literally half the screen while you’re texting. You can’t receive gifs. Videos are poor quality. Texts received or sent post twice until you exit out of the conversation, watch an ad, and then go back in. The typing often lags. I only use it to message my mom and sister that don’t have iPhones when I’m out of signal using WiFi. But honestly I could handle all of the bugs IF IT WASN’T FOR THE CONSTANT ADS! The fact I have to wait for an ad to allow me to exit it every time I try to go between conversations or read a new message is absolute garbage. And this is the sole reason I’ll be finding another messaging app. I would literally rather pay for a functional app than have to deal with this garbage.
Text free
by BEEPBOP_25 on 2020/04/03 18:08
This app is great for texting. You always get the text message it’s not like the other app’s where you have to consistently go onto the app to see if you have gotten a message or a call. Only part of the app is the call with the minutes they go quickly when you don’t have anymore minutes you can’t answer calls nor call out obviously, anyways other then that the app is great. No problems really. I enjoy this app and I recommend this app to others that want another way to text looking for an app or need a WiFi text app. This is the one! Hope you like my review and rate! Good job with the app features they are great!
Confused
by NickName391979 on 2018/06/06 20:04
I love this app I’ve been using it for 2 years and never had any issues I use it as an advertising line for my job this way my real number is private and until last month every time I get a text or a missed call I go to click on the app and it freezes i don’t know if it’s the sponsor ads doing it but then I have to hit my home button then X out my history then lock the phone which is an iphone by the way then re click the app and sometimes it works right away or I have to repeat the steps over and over then I’m able to use it. I get 100+ text messages a day so it’s really annoying to keep going threw this it is constantly freezing I was hoping the update would fix it but it Didn’t Work :( please look into this

Latest update
by msd1957 on 2021/01/15 07:30
Not happy with latest update as it removes use of landscape mode. I prefer landscape on my iPad, need to update to give option to use in portrait or landscape. Was happy with app till this ridiculous move was made, if not able to use in landscape will delete app and subscription and get another app. What were developers thinking in undoing support for landscape mode, makes no sense.
Bring back landscape
by Chaxl74 on 2021/01/15 06:09
I love this app, but am disappointed I can’t rotate it to landscape mode with the latest version. I’m physically challenged and the wider landscape keyboard works better for me than the shrunk portraits one. I’m a regular user of the app.
Social media
by AlphaPerilous on 2021/01/14 13:54
Can the number provided from the application be used for like watsapp snapchat instagram facebook that kind of stuff you know social media? Becuase if it can this app deverses a 10 stars best app if you have a ipad to keep in touch with everyone.
A problem I found
by raupatu on 2021/01/14 00:02
So I have found a problem were when I try to text images or long texts to people it won’t work and say “Sorry, your message cannot be delivered to this number.” Can I get help with this?
Liars
by Me505987654 on 2021/01/13 22:57
Everything says FREE until you add the number then they charge you 4.99/ month even if you cancel right away. That’s pretty sketchy. I would give zero stars.
Love the app
by 02_Jess on 2021/01/13 20:38
Love this app.
Going down hill with the free version
by The critical thinker on 2021/01/12 15:20
Ads and banners now exceed over half the massage area. When you message someone, when you back out to the other messages, you get the full page ad that was just taking up half your screen. If you stay on the message and type a 2nd message, the ad takes up all but one text line at the top. And you can’t scroll it when typing. If you switch to the emoji, even that one line disappears until you switch back to text. Mostly it’s unusable anymore. At least the previous version when you were looking at a chat, the ad might drop to 1/3 screen, but now it’s useless. Probably will go to a different app or just use the adless free one that comes with the phone.
Don’t believe all the fake reviews!!

Like others have said this app is now garbage. Every update, they try to find away to fit another ad in. Why would you take away the option to purchase remove ads? Not everybody needs a monthly plan subscription. The ads slow down the ap tremendously now and use a great amount of bandwidth. Look for and alternate app without so many ads. It’s understandable to have some ads to keep free, but to open the app and have to fight with all the ads is ridiculous.
fix this app
by agj200 on 2021/01/12 08:44
Why does it take so long to load up? why they double texts? Will it freeze 2 seconds after it loads? the second you try to do anything? if you manage to do all that, will the keyboard just disappear and the app freeze? just spent the last 5 minutes trying to resoond yes to a simple message but it won't load. i have plenty of space. I've deleted messages? but no says the works crappiest app
All the sudden not working

Garbage
by Nickimccc on 2021/01/10 19:54
I don’t know how anyone could like this app. I have to watch an ad literally any time I want to read a text message or switch to a new conversation. An ad takes up literally half the screen while you’re texting. You can’t receive gifs. Videos are poor quality. Texts received or sent post twice until you exit out of the conversation, watch an ad, and then go back in. The typing often lags. I only use it to message my mom and sister that don’t have iPhones when I’m out of signal using WiFi. But honestly I could handle all of the bugs IF IT WASN’T FOR THE CONSTANT ADS! The fact I have to wait for an ad to allow me to exit it every time I try to go between conversations or read a new message is absolute garbage. And this is the sole reason I’ll be finding another messaging app. I would literally rather pay for a functional app than have to deal with this garbage.
Garbage
by CurlyHeadedBoss on 2021/01/10 19:46
This app use to be Great a few years back but now it’s nothing like before. First of all...... tooooo mannnnyyyy Addddddssssss!!!! And on top of that you have to BUY MINUTES , they do give you an option to watch there dumb ads for free minutes. Now the real reason why I’m even bothering to write a review ; I needed a new number for personal reasons and text free was the first texting app that came to mind (I haven’t used text free since 2014). Well I created a new account , and immediately tried to text and it wouldn’t let me and They kept changing my number every 2 seconds I wish i was over exaggerating but I’m not. The matter of the fact is .... THIS APP IS GARBAGE. Don’t download this ; use TextNow instead.
WAY too much bandwidth.
by DeadHorsey on 2021/01/10 06:55
I get that it’s free & needs ads, I really do. Not all of us are on unlimited data plans! 248MB for 10 minutes of texting with zero pictures or video! That’s way too much data for a few ads! Throw us all the ads you want, please cut down on how much data it needs. App runs slower and slower every update. Be sure to make those ads run well though. This app could be so much better!
Complete garbage.
by sue eva on 2021/01/10 00:36
Doesn’t work at all. At least not on my iPhone. Phone Number changed every time I opened the app. Tried paying for premium service to keep the number. Made no difference. Tried contacting support. No response after 2 days. Waste of time and money.
Crazy

App crashes

Keeps crashing my phone and is almost unbearable to deal with all the forced ads and the ads literally back to back videos are destroying my phone please slow them down!!!!
Glitch lately
by user56788665 on 2021/01/09 14:52
I’ve watched about 4 videos to gain minutes through the app and 4x it has NOT given me anything for watching 30second long videos. That’s 4x in a row ! This has never happened before, I even use to get 2minutes at a time if the video was long. Now after I watch multiple 30second ads in a row I don’t receive ANYTHING. Please fix!!!!!! It’s becoming a waste of time and very FRUSTRATING.

Can’t Reserve a Number
by .q.w.e.r on 2021/01/09 02:29
I have used TextFree before in the past (a few years ago), and it worked really well. So, I decided to upgrade my account for the monthly subscription to reserve a number. However, when I try to change my number, I encounter a message that pops up and says, “Oops, something went wrong.” I visited the support page and I went through every troubleshooting method including deleting the app and reinstalling. None of these options resolved the issue. So, I sent an email the support center about three weeks ago explaining the issue. I have not received a response, so I sent another one today. I’m considering a request for refund, but I want to check to see if there’s another way to fix this problem. Has anyone else experienced this issue and/or resolved this issue? Thank you! iPhone 11 Pro Max Software 14.2

It’s not a free number
by syphand911 on 2021/01/04 12:01
This app doesn’t provide a free number. You need to PAY. I downloaded and started to use the app as alternative number, 3 months in, the app notified me I already used up all free minutes and I need to pay if I want more minutes. The app also offer option to watch videos to get free minutes, but you need to provide email, phone number and other personal info in the process, very annoying. Conclusion: not a free number, you have to pay for your number.
Loving it

It’s perfect for hiding texts from my mom and dad. It says your only allowed to use if your 13 but they don’t check
It was convenient, but now it’s just a storage stealer
by thezombiecreeper on 2020/12/31 21:06
I use this app to text and it worked fine for a while. But now, even after deleting things like useless group chats, the app takes up a whole gigabyte of storage, and I don’t even have that many contacts. What’s going on?
Good

Duplicate texts
by User Dean on 2020/12/30 06:37
Please fix it is very annoying to have many of the same text randomly appear. I have been using this app for years and have never had a problem until now. If this could be fixed it would be 4 stars because ads can get annoying sometimes, but please fix the duplicate texts because restarting and uninstalling don’t work.
Bad
by Rnoly! on 2020/12/29 03:20
Id try a lot of time and always same results. Nothing😞
Pretty bad.
by Princess donut lover on 2020/12/29 01:48
the ads are crazy! I would really like it to be a one time payment to get rid of ads, not a subscription. And I do NOT like the whole minutes thing. Also PLEASE make it so you can leave group chats! Sure you can delete the chat but then next time someone texts to it it just pops up again. I really think it could be a lot better. And it’s super glitchy and sometimes doesn’t send notifications so I miss messages.

At first it was an okay app but now it is so laggy that I can’t text anyone at all. No matter how many times I refresh it the lagging keeps on and you have to watch adds to be able to call someone it’s like 1 add per minute.
Horrible

Great app years ago
by User100000 on 2020/12/24 18:08
I used to love this app but hadn’t used it in a while. Mostly because when they went from Pinger to Text Free they took away all my accumulated minutes. Went from over 1000 to zero with one update. So I stopped using it regularly. Now I come back to using the app and it is plagued with obnoxious adds. I mean nonstop adds. You can’t send a single text without an add taking over your screen. Sometimes I literally have to close the app and reopen it just to get rid of the ad and get back to the message screen. Only to send one text and have it start all over again. Now I would pay to remove apps but that is a total scam! 4.99 a MONTH! YEP!! JUST SHY OF 60 DOLLARS A YEAR!
Terrible
by jwick9113 on 2020/12/24 04:35

TextFree app is an Awesome app that can save you lots money
by Studiorich on 2020/12/23 13:17
If you have cell phone service that is pay as you go where you pay ten cents per minute you can use your new phone number from this app as a WiFi phone and enjoy unlimited voice calling and not worry about racking up minutes on your prepaid or pay as you go cell phone plan also if you live in an area with poor cell phone service but have a strong WiFi signal then you don’t have to worry anymore about dropped calls using your cell phone as you are using WiFi to make and receive calls. Note No 911 Calls can be made with this service so you must use your cell phone or land line for 911 calls. This feature full phone line comes with voicemail, text, and so much more for $4.99 per month. Calls are clear using your speaker phone and uses less power using WiFi then using a cell phone tower. Plus if you own other cell phones or iPads with no cell service they too will all work using the same local phone number just download TextFree app on all your other devices and you have phones that you can use throughout your home even on locked phones and iPads. You will not be disappointed this is one truly amazing app well worth $4.99 per month and you can try it for free if you don’t mind ads but you risk losing your phone number after 30 days. But your subscription guarantees you can keep your new phone number and is ad free.

by JayPantyDroppa on 2020/12/20 19:59
works good and app as it should , only problem i have is females wont talk to you if messages show up as green text meaning it was sent from android . it would be nice to use text free app with blue messages as if it was sent from an iphone .
Too slow bc of too many ads
by TallMan5555 on 2020/12/20 19:03
I’m using this app for a long time. But recently banner ads changed to half screen ads and app performance is coming to a halt while they’re loading! Even keyboard stops working and phone battery empties up like crazy! If you want to add more ads for your business, at least run them in worker threads so your UI thread doesn’t suffer so much.
More ads please
by Kplan23 on 2020/12/20 15:56
I’m seeing double. Old and new texts in both directions are duplicated. Another Pinger first. Please keep increasing the number, size and placement of ads. Before, during and after every action will certainly have the opposite effect of your goal which should be a reasonable balance of ads and usability. You’re at a 95% level of ads taking up screen real estate and user’s time. Please squeeze in more ads and no one will want to or be able to use this app. I understand you’re a business and need to turn a profit but you’re existence was based on non cellular iPods. They don’t exist any more. TextFree is really only useful on iPads or other tablets. A need for a website for texting died with the first smartphone. **************************************** Increasing the number and type of ads while decreasing the ability to use the app is really obnoxious at this point. Full page ad with no X. I’ve seen it in other apps too. I had to close TextFree and restart. They can plaster the app with ads but I still can’t delete more than one text at a time. Really? It was available years ago. Too many ads cause a loss in revenue when users hit the tipping point and stop using the app. You’re at that point or maybe beyond it. I never use the calling because the quality was terrible. *************************************** TextFree constantly asks for feedback even though I have the Settings on my iPhone set NOT to continue asking. So here’s my feedback. You keep covering a larger percentage of the page with a full time ad. Now about 75% up from 50%. Keep asking for feedback and cover more of the page and I’ll keep reducing the number of stars. Or stop using the app all together. That won’t help your ad revenue. Try improving the app instead. ******************** Ads a now back covering 50% of the screen. I’ve requesting multiple texts delete for years. Other texting apps have it but TextFree won’t comply. Having to delete one text at a time is time consuming which means I use TextFree infrequently. Go back to banner ads and you’ll get a star back. TextFree’s purpose has been diminished over the years as unlimited talk and text have become the norm. FaceTime on an iPad or iPod works far better than TextFree. TextFree doesn’t work with short codes very well so the major reason for using TextFree which is to hide your real number from corporate America just isn’t there. ————————————— Pinger has had a string of endless versions of Apps and confusing names over at least 7 years I’ve used Pinger. They shouldn’t be experiencing growing pains. Pinger is a legacy company and should have its act together by now. I’m still waiting on the ability to delete multiple texts at once like every other texting App can do. Since the phone numbers Pinger uses are not valid mobile numbers they don’t always work for what you need them for such as product promotions or long term communications where you don’t want your real number exposed. Phone service is hit or miss. C+ to F quality. Too much echoing, latency and dropped calls. Stick with your carrier or FaceTime audio.
Don’t waste your time it costs money

Trash
by cjtomkins on 2020/12/20 04:54

Don’t waste your money!
by pooped0ut on 2020/12/17 03:43
Nothing but hassles rendering the app unusable. Update to developers response: “ Problem Description: Still no ability to access my “inbox” within your app after 3 weeks. During that time I’ve deleted your app twice and restarted my phone at least 3-4x’s per your instructions. I wish I knew what y’all were messaging me about. This is another fail for this app.” 12/16/20 - Update - THANKS FOR DELETING ALL OF MY MINUTES for no reason!!! I had 110 minutes and the next morning 0! Your app and service are a SCAM!

I love Pinger text free, except that most of the time I DONT get notifications and app doesn’t show number of incoming texts on icon. Since I don’t have a smart phone, I love texting on my iPad. Just wish I could hear the toilet flush(my sound with incoming texts) more often.
Amazing Amazing Amazing
by 3(5)5/() on 2020/12/14 22:58
All below WAS true! Please fix the issue where all outgoing and incoming texts are duplicated! Please fix this! PLEASE! Old Reveiw: All I can say about this app is that it is amazing. Because I use iPhone my messages don’t send through to androids and other none iPhone numbers I decided to get this app. The reviews about to many ads are ridiculous! The ads don’t get in the way of anything. This app works with minimal lag and glitches, it does sometimes take a long time to open up a conversation but that is expected with any texting app. Overall TextFree has done a really good job on their texting app and I will always use it. Thanks for the great app!!!👍
Freezing

THE BEST TESTING APP

I’ve been looking for months for a good texting app and an finally found it. Not only does this app let you text whoever you want and it’s for free, but you can send pictures, call and the person would literally not know your using a app. Thank you for creating such a amazing app😊

Ad app is a more proper name
by Wkkjv on 2020/12/11 18:26
AVOID AVOID AVOID!! One star because I can’t give it less. If you want to see ads, this is the app for you. Want to open a text but tricked into opening an ad, this is the app for you. Think you want to look at the newest text that came in, but prefer a full page ad that you can’t close until after a set amount if time has elapsed, this is the app for you. I mistakenly updated the app. This app has added full page pop up ads to the mix, on top of the already 1/2 plus of the screen covered with apps. Also, you can never fully delete your texts. The app stores them on your device even after you delete them. As the memory gets full, the only way to fully delete/remove the old stuff is to uninstall and the reinstall this app. Unfortunately, this gives you the latest version. Early versions of this app were useful. The latest is useless...unless you like ads.

Keeps freezing up
by Krcecil on 2020/12/08 21:42
Can’t even type a 4 letter word without the app freezing up for seconds at a time. Two stars for the freezing and for the lying comments about this being a good app, because they were clearly wrong. Good apps don’t constantly freeze when you type one letter at a time. Fix or the stars go to 1 since I can’t give a 0 star rating.

Honestly I mostly wait at least a week to rate apps but it’s my third day using this app and I hate it it has way to many adds like for example theirs an add at the bottom of my screen on my contact list and a pop up add every time I send a messege also after someone sends a messege the keyboard will disappear and when you type it freezes and un freezes like way to often and half the time the messeges don’t even send please if your looking for a quick easy app this is not the way to go

Do NOT go with these people! They have spammed every single contact I have! Before doing so, they will ask you to “rate”, then you find out that they’ve spammed all of your contacts to other countries.
Don’t try the app if you aren’t in the u.s or countries like it.

This app has been around waaaay too long for bugs like this. I feel like the developers are toying with users of this app. Causing bugs where you can’t receive calls so you have to use up all your minutes, and not letting your text go through to whoever it is you’re texting.
Terrible
by J Cales on 2020/11/30 23:59
Each time I choose a number it tells me that the number has been inactive too long and I need to choose a new number, even after paying for a subscription. This app has been completely unusable.
Yessss
by sarashannon8 on 2018/03/05 04:22
Yessss Get this app if you have an iPod, iPad, or iPhone that has been shut off your provider. As for me, I have two iPods and an iPhone that has been shut off the provider. I linked all of them under the same account. I can text as (724) ***-**** and nobody knows that I don't actually have a phone!!! This app is perfect and has no flaws, unless you have absolutely no tolerances for ads. The ads only pop up at the bottom of your screen AFTER you send a message. It's not too bad. I usually can't stand ads, but this doesn't interfere with the quality of the app. You can also, if you double-text, click the little "x" in the corner of the ad to view the keyboard again. You get your notifications as always. Text free also can text you personally when you have updates or to remind you that if your phone number isn't used within a certain amount of time, it will be given to someone else. But anyone that uses this app usually uses it frequently and doesn't have the issue. It only happened to me a few years back when I only got the app to text my mom for a busy month, and right after that I didn't use it. I got a new number, with ease, and now I can use it any time I wish. You may also reserve your number for a small fee. For free you may record your own voicemail. You may also choose your own ringtone, and on Androids you can use your pre-installed ringtones on your device. I recommend this app to anyone. Please download this app if the above criteria relates to you.
TextFree app is an Awesome app that can save you lots money
by Studiorich on 2020/12/23 13:17
If you have cell phone service that is pay as you go where you pay ten cents per minute you can use your new phone number from this app as a WiFi phone and enjoy unlimited voice calling and not worry about racking up minutes on your prepaid or pay as you go cell phone plan also if you live in an area with poor cell phone service but have a strong WiFi signal then you don’t have to worry anymore about dropped calls using your cell phone as you are using WiFi to make and receive calls. Note No 911 Calls can be made with this service so you must use your cell phone or land line for 911 calls. This feature full phone line comes with voicemail, text, and so much more for $4.99 per month. Calls are clear using your speaker phone and uses less power using WiFi then using a cell phone tower. Plus if you own other cell phones or iPads with no cell service they too will all work using the same local phone number just download TextFree app on all your other devices and you have phones that you can use throughout your home even on locked phones and iPads. You will not be disappointed this is one truly amazing app well worth $4.99 per month and you can try it for free if you don’t mind ads but you risk losing your phone number after 30 days. But your subscription guarantees you can keep your new phone number and is ad free.

This is been a success story also a struggle story me as the reviewer have been using Textfree for over six years close to seven and when I had no way to have a phone service from my iPhone I was able to always have access to people calling me and having textWhich it being a American app I had no idea I’d be able to use it in Europe where I went and subsequently suffered a heart attack still having no phone service tax-free had allowed me to call and text my friends and family in the USA with no extra surcharge and really no problem this was a great thing now if this doesn’t come with the bells and whistles but it still was pretty forward thinking for time it came out it’s still one of the originals and one thing about it it’s stable sometime to glitches but it’s stable overall and I’ve still been able to use it we talking about six years of service that I use pretty much every day I am an original thank you tax-free you really helped me expand on so many things and yes I do have phone service now but I still use this as one of my secondaryNumbers one of the best apps ever invented because it works
Glitchy, freezes, auto directs to safari/appstore
by BRO 77 on 2019/09/22 06:18
When I click the message it will often freeze up and I will have to close out the app, double click home, swipe up, and then restart the app literally 4-5 times before I can click one of the messages and it'll take me to the message. When I type it will often freeze up so I can type or mid typing it'll freeze and unfreeze so I'll type one part of a word and finish the last half of a word or two later and then I'll have to use auto correct and rewrite the couple words it froze for. Sometimes it will take me to the message and the box to text won't even be on the messaging screen and I'll have to close out and reload the app for it to go back to normal but then the when I do it freezes up and I have to close and reload it a couple more times to get it to unfreeze. Sometimes it'll take me to safari or the app store even if I didn't click the ads, and no my finger doesn't slip and accidentally click the ads, it just does it by itself sometimes. I'll sometimes have the text box glitched out at the very top of the screen so I can't see the other person's message, or the text bar will just be frozen 3/4s from the bottom inbetween the ad that's covering up half the screen and the top. Paying to get rid of the ads may help with the ad related glitches, but it won't help with the rest of the glitchyness with the app, my advice would be to GET ANY OTHER TEXTING APP!
Used to be great, now it’s just intrusive ads.
by llortretsam on 2020/09/30 22:24
As the title states, this app used to be great, but they did an update that slows it all down by displaying a huge ad everytime you go to the app to respond to a message . The old version had ads, a banner across the bottom and ads that would look like texts, but now it freezes the whole screen for a full page, intrusive ad that ruins the whole experience. Look elsewhere there are hundreds of other apps that have less ads and work better. UPDATE: after reading similar canned responses from this company regarding why they choose to continue intrusive ads, I strongly recommend ANY other texting app available. They will be FAR better. AND THEY SELL YOUR INFO TO SCAMMERS, THUS THE THOUSANDS OF ROBO CALLS. They give the typical greedy response “ it’s free ads are how we make money” they make plenty with the ads they had before, now introduced huge intrusive ones to “coerce” you into paying for their premium service...at that cost, just go to metro pcs. UPDATE 2: after more canned responses from them most seem very catty and pretty condescending rather than actually admitting mistakes of the company they also toss out “pandemic” excuses. Everyone seems to have the same issue, they made plenty of money from the non intrusive ads, before they had even less users...so I don’t buy that excuse for a second. With the latest update they also blocked texted verification for specific sites.
Great free App
by Mmcvey98 on 2019/05/27 18:11
Best free app for texting for when you need another number. I hope that none of you ever have to have another number for the reasons that I have had to. The only complaint I have is the fact that you have to buy minutes and the cost but on the same token with that; If someone tries to call the number you have the option to have a call go directly to voicemail, so if the Caller leaves a voicemail you can still get the communication, along with the ability of an automatic text response to let them know that you cannot receive telephone calls on that number and make them aware of that fact. So I still give it five stars despite the downfall of having to buy minutes. They give you some free minutes to start, and methods/other ways to gain free minutes IF you want to take the time to go through all of the surveys and marketing etc. When I have used the actual calling function of the app, the quality has been great. So overall for being a free app I give it five thumbs up :-)
unlimited talk+text to any phone number regardless if they are a text now user or not
by Graceland kelly on 2020/04/09 17:52
okay so i’ve tried talkatone and almost every free calling and texting app out there but i always come back to this one.. one thing i love about talkatone that this app lacks is that talkatone you only need the calling “ credits “ for international calling... on that app you can send unlimited texts and calls to anyone without calling minutes... regardless if they have the app or not and i LOVE this app but i do think that dark mode should come to this app it would be BEAUTIFUL i’d suggest also “ read receipts “ and i think we should have unlimited text and calls... the calling credits should just be for international calling..so basically we just have unlimited texting and calling to any number regardless if they have this app or not with ads to keep it free just like the talkatone app does!!! other than the whole calling minutes thing that’s the ONLY thing i don’t like other than that this app is amazing and the best of the best but please give us dark mode and give us unlimited free calling i’d appreciate it! and so would do many other people!!!

I enjoy the text free app and calling like watching the adds even joined a few to help with free minutes although it requires internet to use phone and text I really appreciate it helps me very much I have told several of my friends about the App and If you are down on your luck or just can’t afford a phone bill, try the text free app , watch a few adds get minutes for phone you can pick your own number, from an available list of numbers , and you are back in Buisness, yes it requires you to use WiFi! But so far my quality of call’s have been good ,and best of all as long as you use your phone a few times a month you can keep your number, and if you do need to change your number ! Well you simple request for a new number and you can change it and you can even keep your unused minutes!! Wow how great is that ? If after all I have just told you how great text free phone and text app is and you don’t get it , then you just don’t need a phone ! I Love it
5 years, 5 stars
by cobalionandzelda43210 on 2018/06/01 13:13
I have had this app for 5 years (yes, 5 years) so it is imperative that I write a review! I got this app when I started college and did not have phone service yet, and I used it for over a year constantly. I've kept it ever since, and I still have the phone number that I started with. I moved to a rural area, where getting cell service is nearly impossible, and this app came in handy for actually being able to talk on the phone without needing to be in specific corner of the house or outside. This is the best free texting and calling app I've ever found. There are, of course, things that annoy me (like the amount of ads, not being able to make calls for free and only receive them, and the phone number going away if you haven't used it in a while). This is a completely free app, though, so I couldn't be happier. If you want more capabilities, you could either pay for the app or pay for phone service. For everything that this app does, I can't help but to give it 5 stars.
Can I give it 7 stars?
by Zimukusa on 2018/08/25 00:36
Okay, so let’s ignore the fact that three of us in the company mis-dialed the number and that was the problem, not actually a bug... 🤦‍♀️ ...when I reached out to the app developer I half expected no response as I’ve had really negative experiences before with other app developers. We were getting messages that our number had been disconnected despite having paid for the number (again, this was entirely user error as we were misdialing but didn’t realize til later). Frustrated, I sent about 5 messages in quick succession. Got a response within an hour of my first message from someone who clearly knew to calm me down and get tech support. (Instant 3 stars). Tech support tried calling and it worked for them but not for us. Tech support escalated the ticket to second level and provided frequent updates as we were dealing with different time zones (4.5 stars) Second level tech asked for some basic info and quickly spotted the one digit we were dialing incorrectly. (5 stars) I wish I could give two more stars to make it seven, cas I know from many tech friends that these kind of basic errors are ridiculous, but both tech support and second level tech were so good humored about it, I could almost hear the chuckling through their emails as I gulped in horror. (It’s been a rough week, I knew there’d be an error somewhere!) Truly appreciate the highly professional and good humored support on this app. Seven stars if I could give them!
Used to work
by 26atom on 2018/04/25 02:57
I used this app quite a bit. The old version worked beautifully. There were ads, but they weren't intrusive. For some reason I couldn't transfer my old number to my new iPad so i downloaded this new abomination. I was hit by 2 ads immediately. I also cant find Where to re-add ANY contacts. The intuitive usage is hidden. I have an update to add to this review. Now that i have used it for a few weeks there is one HUGE NUISANCE that has been included in the update. The ads now replace some of your contacts, crowding out your numbers. How did the EVER allow this? Also, there are ZERO ways to delete them. Someone left me a voicemail in error and i am unable to get their erroneous call out of my contacts. There used to be an "erase conversation" button, which because you now must scroll through ads, has completely disappeared. Ive been using the new updates for some time now. I’m convinced the numbers have been sold, as i now receive a robocall every 30 minutes and obscene messages daily. I’m looking for a better app. I would never recommend anyone download this. They offer no way to block or erase incoming calls, causing your contacts to be lost far down the list. Its truly awful.
Text free
by BSmooth512 on 2019/05/01 21:03
Best VoIP App ever. Love the service and most of all the best deal ever. Why? Because it's the best and cheapest service to sign up with if one wants to have phone service at your convenience. In addition, Thanks to Text free I survived with out phone service for three month and they didn't pressure me to sign up. As result can't wait until I sign up for the service as as form of appreciation. In addition this is now what I call greatest cp service of all time. With great concept while enhancing technology by providing optimal solution when needed. Thank you so much cuz you Rock Textfree...and most of all I use your service as my primary iT service for my company as well. Reason - if I’m not available then the customer can even leave vm even when I’m off line. As result what an amazing/brilliant technology. Much love and respect Goes our to the creator of your organization and employees as well. Thank You Everyone... BCS inc.
Not A Good App Anymore
by Jonathen_crow on 2017/12/05 05:32
I’ve seen countless people complaining about their issues with this app. Mostly that they’re able to send text messages but not receive them. And I’ve also seen that through my own efforts their response team for help is completely unresponsive. In a lot of places on the website you’ll see that they take a short time to respond, but in reality they take upwards of weeks, it’s been several weeks since I submitted my first request and I still have no response. Most other people cannot find responses, or solutions to their problems. They seem unwilling to respond anyone that is not buying credits. This was once a good app, really great for people who possibly lived in bad areas were their Wi-Fi was stronger than their cell phone signal. And were unable for whatever reason to use their actual cell phone services to contact other people. It used to be really great especially when you were trying to do multiple things at once, or you were unsure of someone having your real number. Now it’s not worth the amount of time it takes to download.
Why I like and possibly love fried okra
by Jengih on 2020/06/19 04:17
I would like to share with you my honest and overwhelming feelings for fried okra. It’s something I have harbored inside of me since I was a child. I have never shared these feelings to anyone before now and I wish you could understand to what depth these happy sensations of love and warmth battered in a perfect amount of coziness and placed in my grandmothers perfectly seasoned skillet. A skillet that has the unbelievable amount of exact proportions of normalcy’s a child needs. I grew into the person I am today bc of that skillet and I am able to give and show love because of all those perfect little pieces of fried okra. I’m just pulling your chain!!! What in the world am I even talking about!!! But in a serious note...this APP is AWESOME!!! Love it!!! It could t be any better and I want to say thank you to everyone that has had anything to do with it:) Have a wonderful night and smile bc Text Free App is my fried okra😉
* Love It * Easy to Use * Super Convenient *
by Cass 7678 on 2019/03/21 04:12
I’m generally not the type to use an app like this (40 year old, woman, with a home phone & cell phone). But, I recently decided to shop around for cell service to save some money. I canceled my current service, planning to switch providers the following day. Then I saw a few more ads & decided to hold off to do more research. That was great until I realized I had no method to text certain friends & family. This was the first app I found in my search, so I signed up (not expecting much). To my surprise, it’s been super easy to use. I really loved that I was able to pick my own, local number. After that, I was able to start texting right away. The return texts came back quickly & there was no noticeable delay in speed. I would definitely recommend this app. I’ve been using it for a few days now & am very pleased with everything.
True Story ...
by T0Ne3e on 2017/10/17 22:51
I own a iTouch 5th Gen, Current Mini iPad & iPad Pro. When I discovered your App on the online store and tried it out for a week without adding any of the subscriptions to do a little App Test Drive, I knew right away Textfree was an App paying subscriptions for. It’s Easy, Works with all my gadgets, and I can keep in touch everyday all day with everyone I know. Before Textfree, I used an old Flip Phone for my communications and it SUCKED. It was ancient, I haven’t seen anyone flip anything for anything in our present time and I wasn’t a fan of Contract Mobile Carriers, I did good with what I had though. TEXTFREE is 👍🏼 GREAT ! Voicemail to Text feature is the best feature E V E R ! It’s changed the way I communicate from not caring to caring. I recommend TEXTFREE to Everyone Out There. I haven’t had any issues and App is up to date and running smoothly all the time so Thank you everyone at Pinger.
Personal Fav
by Winterstone007 on 2018/09/19 10:21
I am truly grateful of all that is allotted to me by this app and its creators n maintainers 🙏🏻 I have been using it, with the same uninterrupted or changed contact, for nearly a decade. It has saved me so much money and headache. I have been able to contact when no phone services work via WiFi. I have never had an issue to even need to contact customer service; if there even is one, lol. That is ‘top notch’ status quality to me. Not to mention being able to connect and utilize from any device that downloads apps or gets internet access. I hope to continue for another decade and beyond as the world moves more towards this kind of platforms. Thank you to all that are involved with this project for the outstanding results and complete privacy and anonymity (unless I myself connect me.) 💜🙏🏻👍🏻🤗
Need to know!!!!
by savannah shelly on 2020/11/24 20:59
OK so…… You need to know that: you only have a certain amount of minutes to call with, and when those minutes run out you have to pay to get more! So annoying! When I first got this app I loved it because my dad has a galaxy 11 phone and since I have an iPod I cannot text him with my normal texting app! So I’ve been texting on it for about a year now, and I normally only text him I don’t really call him. But then one day I tried to call him and my iPod hung up immediately! Then a robot voice said,” you do not have any more minutes to call with. You will have to go to get more minutes and buy more minutes to call again!” And the thing was, I hadn’t even called a lot! They do not give you enough minutes in the first place to start with! Also, if you don’t use this app to text consistently, your number gets taken away from you! Are you serious! I don’t understand it. My normal texting app does not do that with me, and I am very mad about this one. And it’s very glitchy and it freezes a lot! OK……… I know I’ve been speaking bad about this app, but it is a horrible app! But, if you’re looking for an app that you are going to consistently text weird and not call, this is the app for you Note to makers of this app: Please improve this! I will soon delete this app because of this flaw! I would not recommend this app to anyone else because of this flaw! I am sorry about it, but people have to know.😬
Please listen
by Andrew1243 on 2018/08/29 21:34
I had this app for a while, pretty good, then I decided to try TextMe, but I deleted and got this one again. I like this app, but Sometimes it can be a little slow and I have to reopen it, please fix. And I think you should make calls better speed and quality, please fix this and I will stay by your side. Andrew, I apologize for wasting your time further but, if I delete the app and reinstall, can I resume the use of my old number and keep all of the contacts that I had previously? It seems like an unnecessary amount of work to delete it and have to get all of my contacts back. I have a fairly large amount of contacts. Regardless, thank you for your patience. I will continue to use the app with a five star review for support.
Great app
by JF0333 on 2018/01/12 19:31
This is one app that really is free! Yes, you can purchase minutes if you want, but you can also watch a few short (very short) videos and in return, you are credited minutes on your account, which you only need if you want to make an actual phone call - texting is free. The only downside to using this app is that not all SMS text messages are accepted by this app.....certain one time codes that a company sends you in order for you to complete their sign-up/account confirmation process, are not recognized and therefore will not come through using the phone number that you are given/chose when using this app. I think this is an area that the app developers are working on, so hopefully the list of comparable SMS texts grows soon. Otherwise, this is a solid app that works great!
I cannot have a standby number
by pleazando0611 on 2019/11/28 11:53
Hello pinger, i am a huge fan of your app, TextFree I used it the first time and it was okay, in less than 2 weeks I had about 200 call units. I logged out my account from my iPhone, trying to login back I cannot. The app says my number has expired and incorrect password, I tried to recover my password through my verified email address it didn’t work out. I have been using same number to call and text friends in the United states, I deleted the app loaded it again to my phone but each time I get a new number, when I logout our of the app the number disappears and changes to a new one, and this is a routine thing that happen anytime I logout of the app and try to log back in. Even when I don’t logout but close the app, when I try to open it again the number changes. Pls try and fix it as soon as possible. This is my email. Looking forward to hearing from you. Thanks
Why I love Text Free
by AshelyMacyMcmullen on 2018/06/09 11:18
I always wanted to text and I never got to text free is a really nice app Because you could pretty much text your Friends and family members I know this because I’ve always wanted to text and I never really got to so it’s like a new beginning really kind of because I could finally text so I really enjoy it and I suggest You get it because it’s really fun to text to people. And it’s why you should get it it’s really fun so whoever made it shout outs to you you are the best and this app is free no money just have to set it up and then you can text! I hope you buy this app is an amazing app and I just really love it are you a five star review because it is her of that so, I think you should buy it. That is why I think this app should get a five star review I do you should buy it.
Nice so far
by CjayDk on 2020/02/25 13:05
I switched back to this texting app after the one I had been using for many years updated to unusable, at least by my account, and from what I have read to many others. This app does what I need, just plain old texting from my iPad. I do not and most likely never will use the phone feature. I like that the ads are not blatant, I can see them, but they are not in the way of my texting. It is a nice easy to use app. The 4 stars are because there is a word count so if I get too wordy I have to go back and edit what I have written. I did not have that on the other app.. Also there is nothing I have seen that tells me that my text has been delivered or at least sent, I would like to see that feature in an update if possible.
Was charged day after subscription canceled and deleted.
by lisho0206 on 2020/06/29 19:30
I contacted your help desk, although I’m skeptical after this stunt,To request a refund. I usually use Google Voice and was locked out of my account. I reserved the phone number through text free and hadn’t even used it. That was about 4 days ago and yesterday when I regained access to my Google Voice the first thing I did was cancel my subscription in Settings in my iPhone and all look to be successful it was no longer there. Then today I get notified through my bank that I was charged by you to reserve the number and it is showing back up active in my subscriptions. And I know that I canceled the subscription correctly and it was gone. It’s only $4.99 and that isn’t the issue. The issue is I was charged after cancelling. If you were to charge me it should have been at sign up. Very fishy. And the transaction is pending. It’s not as though you charged days ago and now it hit. Please rectify this situation because it is wrong and bad business.
Decent app
by shivrs01 on 2017/12/13 09:38
I’ve used this app for quite some time over different versions of the iPhone. Overall, I am happy with it and would recommend it. A couple improvements that I think would be great to see. First, some additional ringtones. The current ones sound a bit outdated, like ones that were on my Motorola Razr back in the day. Second, I understand this app is supported by ads but it would be neat to see them less intrusive. By this I mean it would be helpful if the ads did not become a larger size once you click send on a message. If you’re having a conversation and sending multiple messages back and forth, the larger ads get annoying and do get in the way. I would have no issue with the banner size ads at the bottom (like the size when you are typing out a message before pushing send).
Great App! Have used it for over two years, but...
by S.R. Rabbit on 2019/07/25 05:30
I've actually used this app multiple times, due to a damaged battery port on my previous iPad. Lol. I love using TextFree and recommend it to anyone who complains about their cell phones or minutes. However, there is one problem that just started July 23/24, around midnight. Right now, I'm using it to text my romantic other. We were discussing something important, but then I didn't get a response. It turns out the text I know I sent was never received. I had to text it to them again. I worry this will continue to happen. So I told them I may have to duplicate my texts to make certain they receive them. I don't know if it's on their end or not. If it is something to do with the app, though, please fix it.
Not how it used to be
by frankiemills61 on 2019/04/21 18:58
This app has some good features, but now days it’s really annoying. I get emails daily. I get random calls when only a few people have the number, and they didn’t give it out. When you go into the area to view your calling minutes, there’s ways to earn minutes that don’t even work. I’ve done 3 things recently that were supposed to give me a lot of minutes, and they never changed. I only have 12 and should have about 200. This is very frustrating for me, because their programs don’t work. Also, you used to be about to watch videos and get 2 minutes, now you only receive one. That’s a lot of long videos to watch to only receive 1 minute. 2 wasn’t ideal either, but it was way better than 1. I’ve been using Pinger/TextFree off and on for years and years. It’s just going downhill and is less reliable. My old account had 500 calling minutes cause it would actually work
works amazingly well
by Rabbi Phillip Picasso on 2020/02/07 05:04
Best free texting app out there with a few glitches once in awhile. If I’m texting a LOOOOONG text, after awhile the letters of the keyboard get ‘stuck’ and are showing on the screen ‘3D’ and the other letters will stop responding. The app is amazingly reliable and I am glad to click on the advertising a lot to keep it free. I have had it now for several weeks and have not had any serious issues besides the ‘keys stuck in 3D mode’ issue which I don’t know what to call it. Also sending and receiving pictures some time freezes up the app, just a note for the glitch team and not a complaint. The app is reliable and I only wish there was a locking way on IPhone 7 so I could hide the app.
Mostly positive with a few cons
by maxcess on 2020/06/03 17:49
Like the app a lot! Ben using it for couple of years. It has almost all the features as your actual phone like calling, texting (pictures / videos), and voicemail(even voicemail in text). Couple of cons that I have experienced is that it drains my battery super fast so if I’m not home or near a charging station, I’d think twice about using it. Also, it freezes sometimes but not often. Finally, you can not turn the notification off for the incoming calls. Even if notifications for the app is completely turned off, you won’t see the text messages but if someone calls you, it will still comes through. I’m not sure if it’s a glitch or is just how it works given it’s using your cellular data. Would like to know if there is a solution for that.
Best For Preteens Or Younger Even Older!
by Speedy 409 on 2017/11/21 02:30
I’ve used this app at the age of 10 and am still using today to talk to my friends,family, and sometimes pizza delivery (just kidding I don’t know if they have that feature but I hope they do). Great for those who don’t want an actual phone or doesn’t have one at the moment also for the ones who don’t like mobile companies that will rather stick to WiFi, but here’s why I give it a 4. There are two essential things you guys have to do that bug me! limit ads because every time every 15-30 seconds I see an ad pop up it’s not that annoying but I would love to see less. 2, from the day I got the app I’m not sure if this feature is there and that feature is groups! I haven’t seen or know how to do it please help and thanks if you read it have a good day
Text free App
by Reba1949 on 2019/07/11 19:00
Want to take a moment to say how great this app is for me. I started out wanting this app because I didn't have unlimited text on my phone at the time. Then I bought minutes and decided to use this phone number to keep from using my main phone number. I have had this number for about 3 years now and I've seen them improve over this time. Text free is a great app and I plan to keep it forever. I have tried other texting apps but in my opinion, they're not that great. I give this app 5 stars. Also, whenever I contact customer service, they are "Johnny on the spot" in getting back to me and handling my requests. I love them. 👍🏾 Thanks Textfree. Your the best😍 Past that, there is nothing left to say.👍🏾😍
Perfect for my needs
by Windbear2525 on 2018/03/28 19:46
I’ve found Textfree to be the best free text app out there even though it has a few glitches. I switched over from Talkatone when an update made it no longer compatible. I then tried a few other free apps which didn’t even compare to Talkatone’s quality. Textfree came close to Talkatone ‘s quality at the time, but had a few major glitches such as occasional dropped or unreceived messages, messages which were limited in size, sent out of order, etc. But most of those issues have been corrected by updates and patches over time, making Textfree the best free chat app I’ve found. It is now about 98% dependable in both transmission and receiving with an occasional (rare) dropped message. There are often noticeable delays in transmitting. One thing I wish Textfree would allow are Bitmojis since I love using them. For some reason, I can’t get them to work. I also wish there were a way to create group chat/mailing to send the same message to more than one person at time. There may be a way, but I haven’t figured it out. Other than that, Textfree works great for my needs! And, it IS free!
Garbage

Too many ads popping up and too many advertisement banners. Then, every couple days they send you a text message warning that you will lose your phone number if you're not constantly texting with it. Also, they want way too much money to remove the advertisements and/or to keep your phone number. I'm an adult and I was trying to use this app to conduct some business, but unfortunately, this app is more of a novelty item. It's not a professional solution. It's for children who have an iPod and no phone, so they can text & talk from it. Also, i tried to earn some free minutes by doing their surveys. I wasted at least 25 minutes on numerous surveys, answering a ton of questions, only to be told that “this survey is not a good match for you”. Unfortunately, I wasted valuable time and got nothing in return. This app is definitely not for adults. If you are an adult, avoid this app. It's not worth the aggravation.
Best Emergency Resource!
by LoveLoveTina on 2020/03/30 14:05
I am so grateful you exist! My iPhone suddenly broke. Then SIM card drama, add to that all the carriers with specific rules! My friend gave me his iPhone 8 to replace mine. Only it was AT&T phone. I’ve been with Boost for 6+ years but they don’t accept this carrier. I seriously gave up for weeks! Considered it an unplanned unplugging vacay. THEN!!!! I randomly remembered your app from years ago, downloaded it onto the new iPhone (everything else worked but texts & calls) & within 2 minutes I was sending texts. No lengthy sign up, no contract, no hidden agenda. And bonus~didn’t realize app offers limited free phone calls as well. So super huge thank you for making something that should be easy, actually easy!
5 Stars!
by Eisrs on 2019/07/22 02:23
I enjoy this app so much! One of my friends mentioned it to me when I told them I couldn't use my phone's built-in app. I was surprised that it would work this well! I love this app because you can actually PICK the number you use. This is great because if you have a hard time remembering certain things, you can look through and choose the easiest one for you. All of the contacts I have for Text free have a different phone than me. Even though they do, I can still text them really easily. But, I realized that the emoji selection is different from the actual iPhone selection. When another person texts one that you don't have, a little box with a question mark pops up instead. I have trouble with this sometimes because I can't tell which one it is. This is the main problem I have in Text free. Lagging. Sometimes it lags worse than others, but it almost always lags some. I can type fast, so if I do, it's not as bad. I don't know if it's just my device because it's so old, or what. Does it happen for everyone? Or just me? Overall this app is great! One of the best I've ever found!
Minor improvements would make this app great
by AnKa12685 on 2018/07/28 15:49
The app is good but could use improvement. 1. It would be great to know if someone has read the message. It use to show a check mark but that option has disappeared a while back with one of the updates. 2. It’s crazy how many messages never get delivered and neither party knows seeing how you can’t tell what was read 3. Pictures!! When you click on the picture weather you go to save it or just see it, when you get out it always takes you to the very end of the conversation. It would be nice to see the the option of a gallery collection or a way to just scroll through the pictures alone. On Kik you clicked on the picture and you’re able to swipe left and right to go through the photos that are in your current conversation
Works Well. Amazing App
by SoItsJessiie on 2020/09/19 22:07
I’ve been using this app for the past few days & it works amazing. I can send pictures & messages with no problem as well as receiving them. I was a little worried because I heard many things about this app good & bad but it has been working amazing for me. I used this same app awhile back when I didn’t have a phone. I use it now for my business. I sell cars & didn’t want to always give out my personal number. I’m happy that I can use this as if it was an actual phone number. Going to continue seeing how it works & if it continues I’ll be joining their subscription. Also the ads aren’t bad like other text apps that are constantly popping up ads.
Simple clean interface, Easy to get minutes
by Skipee McGee on 2017/12/24 01:52
I figure most people only take the time out of their day to type a review if they want to complain about something, so I’d like to propose an alternative. I think Textfree is an excellent app for several reasons; the interface is convenient and simple to understand, the ads are minimalist and in intrusive by modern standards, and its super easy to acquire free minutes. Also I’ve spotted the devs actually replying to some reviews, which is fairly rare too I can tell you. Overall Textfree is a great version (probably the best) of a very useful service of which there are many competitors. Just wanted to give a shout out to people actually putting out good software.
Saved me and has nice features!
by JTinSouthNJ on 2018/01/19 05:11
If we all had continuous (free) WiFi , this would totally replace everyone’s current relationship with their current carriers! It’s got a load of options for ring tones and let’s you choose your own phone # (mine ended with the year I was born)! The calls sound clear and the texts arrive instantly. It allows you to send photos and videos and you will forget you even switched to Text Free. It’s a Godsend truly when another carrier (FreedomPop) kept my # after a free trial and wasn’t nearly as efficient and impressive as Text Free is!! And I only would have saved $10 with them per month and the calls were dropped and photos arrived hours later and you could only reach them by email. I lost my # after having it almost 20 years but I didn’t care cause Text Free had my back and saved the day!! Now I can talk to my family and friends again finally and have reliable fast user friendly service plus they let you earn FREE minutes to make outgoing calls. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!! Much LOVE AND GRATITUDE! Sincerely, Jereme Benyola NJ, USA
Okay this app is total scam
by Torhuu1 on 2018/10/21 08:31
I downloaded this app, because I am in foreign country now and 1st I wanted to earn my mins, just to make sure app works. So I accepted this earn mins buy playing coin master. 1st of all I didn’t want to spent money before trying it. my plan was to earn mins and see if it work great then I will buy mins. So I earned 67 mins for playing game for 3 days, but I never got my mins and it is still missing. I tried reaching out, they were keep letting me respond to this automated emails back n forth then they just disappeared. I tried emailing to costumer service many times. Then I was like ok never mind and try buying the mins. They charged my card and the mins was never added into my account. So I had to call Apple to cancel my last purchase from this app. Such a scam. They just try money thru app and by make us download it. This is not legit app. Please at least have some business manner, stop wasting people’s time.
Used to be a great app
by Original D. Wade on 2018/09/22 00:06
I’ve used this app as a secondary number for almost 10 years now and I have watched it deteriorate slowly. The two main issues I have now are that : 1. When using the calling service it places numbers in my call list and when receiving calls through the app it rings through my native phone without any way of stopping it even if notifications for the app are off. 2. All of sudden when making calls the first song from my music list plays in the background. Needless to say that I waste the call minute and there seems to be no way of stopping it. It has come time for me to seek another better working app elsewhere. I called and emailed tech support and no solutions were offered just meaningless apologies. Still great for texting but don’t pay for minutes.
Great but oof 😣
by Pamollope on 2020/07/05 23:36
Eh ok so first of all this app is awesome, I can text all I want without limits. But when I call.... OK so the quality of the call is ok but when they don’t pick up and the thing at the end where it tells you to send a voicemail lasts six seconds, it takes away a whole minute! And I didn’t even leave a voicemail!!! The minutes are also so hard to get, like it takes forever for the option to watch a video pops up, but the videos are really short so thank you for that. Ugh 😑 the minutes are just really annoying. And the ads after you send a message just take over the whole bottom half of the screen! That parts not so bad though. Please try to fix these issues! And please respond!
4 because.......
by ykwtfgo818 on 2019/04/14 09:42
It always since day one rob me of my minutes out of nowhere. Happened on two separate occasions. Second thing it’s so glitchy or something cause I get messages late or never receive them...sounds and is strange to me because several friends showed me on their cellphones...not a well written experience for you guys but hey I have an issue it may be my own issue either way after having this app on and off for the past 5 years if I’m not mistaken just look in to it and fix it if there is an issue discovered if there isn’t one you have the right to simply tell me it’s you not us...too lazy to grammar check it I finally wrote you guys and rated this app after ignoring it for so many years ok that’s it...
poor communication + becoming horrible app
by Y$wajjur on 2018/09/23 16:01
I’ve used this app for about 2 years now, and when you complete offers for minutes it’s literally wasting your time and storage. You have to download apps just for the minutes, sometimes deleting the apps you already have depending your storage then when you complete said app, NO MINUTES GOES TO YOUR ACCOUNT. When you reach out to the developers, they won’t only not reply to you, but they won’t even reconcile for time wasted on apps. I prefer to have a decent amount of minutes to make calls in regards to work, and when I complete a task, I expect to have those minutes I chose. But not only do I not have those minutes, I also have a company not replying or giving some type of feedback when I reach out to let them know the situation. Great for texting, but calling? No way 2/10.
Great app!
by MoonShadow78 on 2018/08/31 07:08
Now I’m not normally one to write reviews on ANYTHING, but I felt compelled to do so on this one as it has been amazing thus far. There hasn’t been any bugs or noticeable issues with service since I’ve downloaded it. Yes, there are ads, but to me it’s a small price to pay in order to have a way to stay in touch with older family members who aren’t tech-savvy & don’t want the complications of a cell phone service. It also allows me to stay in touch with my young son while I’m away from him without having to pay for monthly phone service when all he & I do is text occasionally. Thank you Text Free for providing us all with the ability to stay connected without the hassle (and MONEY) of a cell phone carrier bill!!!
Very good
by Tiffanymz3029 on 2020/04/25 16:38
Great app! Totally worth it if you can’t text. I recently had my actual text app deleted because it stopped working and textfree was there to help so I didn’t have to stop texting my friends. Very great, ads aren’t really a problem on here I do have a huge problem with ads but they aren’t bad here. I love it. I do have a phone like actual phone but the texts stopped working. I’m so glad textfree was ever created! Great job developers! It’s incredible and super useful. Only thing: WiFi, I have WiFi at my house but not anywhere I go. So fix that. Other then the WiFi issue I’d say this game deserves 5 complete stars!!!! Wonderful and please keep up the good work!
Garbage
by Nickimccc on 2021/01/10 19:54
I don’t know how anyone could like this app. I have to watch an ad literally any time I want to read a text message or switch to a new conversation. An ad takes up literally half the screen while you’re texting. You can’t receive gifs. Videos are poor quality. Texts received or sent post twice until you exit out of the conversation, watch an ad, and then go back in. The typing often lags. I only use it to message my mom and sister that don’t have iPhones when I’m out of signal using WiFi. But honestly I could handle all of the bugs IF IT WASN’T FOR THE CONSTANT ADS! The fact I have to wait for an ad to allow me to exit it every time I try to go between conversations or read a new message is absolute garbage. And this is the sole reason I’ll be finding another messaging app. I would literally rather pay for a functional app than have to deal with this garbage.
Text free
by BEEPBOP_25 on 2020/04/03 18:08
This app is great for texting. You always get the text message it’s not like the other app’s where you have to consistently go onto the app to see if you have gotten a message or a call. Only part of the app is the call with the minutes they go quickly when you don’t have anymore minutes you can’t answer calls nor call out obviously, anyways other then that the app is great. No problems really. I enjoy this app and I recommend this app to others that want another way to text looking for an app or need a WiFi text app. This is the one! Hope you like my review and rate! Good job with the app features they are great!
Confused
by NickName391979 on 2018/06/06 20:04
I love this app I’ve been using it for 2 years and never had any issues I use it as an advertising line for my job this way my real number is private and until last month every time I get a text or a missed call I go to click on the app and it freezes i don’t know if it’s the sponsor ads doing it but then I have to hit my home button then X out my history then lock the phone which is an iphone by the way then re click the app and sometimes it works right away or I have to repeat the steps over and over then I’m able to use it. I get 100+ text messages a day so it’s really annoying to keep going threw this it is constantly freezing I was hoping the update would fix it but it Didn’t Work :( please look into this
