Description

After that, minutes are free to earn or cheap to purchase. SMS messages are also free. On top of free calling and SMS, additional features include voicemail, group chat, MMS picture & video messaging, emoji, ringtones, and more. WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING“It’s like having a real phone number from the carrier. Except FREE.” –Nick “I started using this app back in 2007 on my iPod touch 3rd generation... Works every time, voice calls are clear, and no one knows it’s an app and not an actual phone. Highly recommended.” –Scott “I have used this app as my main phone number for years. It is just as reliable as an actual phone number.” –Kay “I’ve tried several, but hands down, Pinger is by far the best. Why? Simple: It works. Period.” –Tuc “I would rate this like 100,000,000 stars but can’t :/ only 5.” –Molly “Great to have a backup number especially when you travel abroad.” –Milo TERMS Subscriptions automatically billed monthly or annually to your iTunes Account and auto-renew, unless you turn off auto-renew at least 24-hours before the end of the current period.

I've been using Pinger for several years now. It's so handy to be able to give my friends, family, and business contacts a US number they can call or text for free even when I'm overseas. Pinger voicemail works great too. Thank you Pinger!

by Sarcasticalories on 2019/08/14 03:57
This app is great, I got it because I have iPod and can only text other people that have an apple product, but not everyone in my family has an iPhone. So I got this app to be able to talk to my parents and siblings, but most of the time I don’t get a notification when they text or call me. I do sometimes, but not always. It doesn’t even show the little 1 marker on the app showing I have something. This is my only complaint about the app tho, so, good job! 😊
Great!

I’ve been using the Pinger app for several years. I also have the talk feature. I particularly appreciate the ability to use this app across devices. When texting is restricted to cell phone it is easy to miss messages that require a timely response. I highly recommend this app for anyone who uses more than one device during the day. lol

by G2Vid on 2019/08/07 21:08
A bit slow to load, slow to select contacts. Layout while typing could be improved; too much space consumed by ads during typing. HOWEVER, my shock of finding out my cell carrier doesn’t include calls from the US to Mexico and Canada (very expensive add-on!) was offset by the PLESANT shock of finding out I can use PINGER at the normal time-based rate.

by Ambiverbal on 2019/08/07 18:21
Pinger/TextFree has been one of the most useful apps on my iPhone for years. When I'm overseas, Pinger allows me to text folks back in the USA for free, all while I use a local SIM card. (Recipients don't even know I've left the country unless I tell them.) And when I'm home, I have a desk phone at my office. I use Pinger for my business texting number, which lets me keep my primary cell phone number private. Pinger has brought me great service, convenience, and reduced cost from the moment I downloaded it. I regularly recommend it to friends and coworkers. Grazie, danke, mercí, gracias, thank you!

It allows me to choose my same number(which I’d love to keep) but still won’t function. I can’t text, can’t call. It just repeatedly does the same thing and also it changes my number on its own and every number it says has expired due to inactivity. Fix it Pinger! Please & Thank you! Other than that, great app!

I tried nearly a I half-dozen different services like text free. By that I mean the different companies that offer voice and texting services. I knew the dozen I think it was actually four or five over the last two years that whole process of shutting up with your email and setting up your phone to work with your system getting phone number and starting to use the new phone number with your family and friends and perhaps business associates and then if it doesn’t work out very well is an absolute mess!! Sure you put the learn to possibly look at the reviews. The trash out that that’s still not full pool. Typically finish up this review, after a little more than a full year of using Textfree and I personally have two numbers with Textfree and three other family members have Textfree I considerate absolutely unbelievably fantastic and bulletproof. The guys that run this thing have really put a lot into it. All I can say is that we love it. Oh and by the way 100 minutes for a couple of bucks, well are you kidding. I hope this year on forever. Thanks guys, Michael And family and friends
Free calls, voicemail and texting
by Tdeberry on 2019/04/06 10:43
I have been using TextFree for quite awhile now. It is absolutely free calling, texting and voicemail. It works very well as long as you are connected to a reliable WiFi. The only problem I’ve ever had is sometimes when I answer an incoming call, the call drops. However, I do use this service instead of my Paid Cell Phone Service for when I don’t want to give out my Paid Cell Service Number such as surveys. I also use my TextFree number for friends and family who don’t have a paid cell service phone number so that I can text or call them free of charge. This is my back up phone number when I don’t want to receive telemarking calls. I am giving it 4 stars. I took off one point for the dropped calls. Otherwise it’s a pretty good service and is completely free to other TextFree numbers, any and all incoming calls are also totally free. As long as you make or receive one answered call or send atleast one text per month, you will not lose your selected phone number. I also like that you can watch videos or ads to gain extra minutes to make calls to non-TextFree numbers. Incoming calls and incoming and outgoing text messages are always free. I would definitely recommend this app for anyone who is looking for a Free WiFi calling and texting service.
Here are some facts.
by w1selabs on 2018/03/13 18:20
In the past, if you bought minutes and saved them up, then lost the number to not using it for 30 days, you were screwed. The number was free to anyone and fast. Since that experience many years ago, I use it everyday. Not sure if that’s all changed but that’s how you avoided problems back then with this app. Use it once a week even, but do use it or else. lol Besides “accidentally” opening the ad when I’m texting others (constantly), this app still provides a great service to whomever uses it. The voicemail features a top notch. Your options for the app are just as awesome. Once I got 100mbps WiFi it works as good as my landline. In 10mbps it works but with a strong delay and some issues. I can change my number anytime & if I don’t like who has my number I can block them or vanish. Perfect for avoiding stalkers and drama. 4 stars for latest updates. The devs are really getting it to perfection. 5 stars for the app in general. It’s FREE! I save so much money by including this app in my professional life. So I’m-not ever giving up on it. Try it out. You’ll see for yourself. THE RECENT 3 month old BAD NEWS: they have ads running pop up scripts that take over your screen and take you to your browser outside of the app. Whoever allowed it should be fired. Flat out. No explanations or excuses. Gone. I won’t use this until it’s fixed. VERY SUSPICIOUS BUSINESS.
Won't give it 1 star just because
by Still Lonely on 2018/01/07 21:54
I have used this app for a few years and finally feel I should review it. It was great. You do get what you pay for and it didn't cost me anything so it was wonderful being able to text or make calls free. I didn't always get the free minutes the the tap joy offers but I had time to waste so no big deal. I never wanted to rate it but now that I am unable to use it anymore I will say this: It was great when it worked. Update after update changing the appearance and including stickers (causing some dialogs to be lost upon update) and everything else was frustrating but the whole "free" part made it easy to deal with. Now with the most recent updates I could not send pics and now I can't even send a text without closing the app and starting again a few times. Now that it has been updated beyond use I give it 3 stars to give it credit for when it worked. I would give it 0 stars for the performance over the past few weeks. Looking for a replacement app after rating. Disappointed.
Overall Great App!
by G8dgetgirl on 2019/06/14 06:39
Pinger/Text Free is my go to app for a second line. The platform is simple and easy to use. The overall signal is as stable, as your wifi provides. They have a good selection of numbers from you to choose from, theres not an overwhelming amount of ads, Texting is free no matter what, however, You do need to add minutes for talk in which you have the option to pay for them, or you, can watch short video ads, and participate in consumer offers, free trials, opinions/surveys to accrue them. They make it very reasonable no matter which option you choose to get minutes. I personally dont participate in watching ads and taking surveys nor do i write reviews very often, and pinger has me doing both. Ha! Thanks pinger, keep up the good work
When all else fails....
by CiaoBellina on 2018/11/28 22:49
I had to download an app that would allow me to reach family members who were on the same bill same cell company and even shared a feature where our line to lines are free. Not sure how my phone suddenly was unable to connect with texting or actual phone calls to them I found Textfree as I found myself in a frantic trying to reach my sons father n even my own mother. It downloaded within seconds, opened easily with directions so simple it was within at most 2 minutes to set up n connected me to both of those I was reaching out for frantically. Thanks to Textfree I was able to get messages and other vital information I needed to within minutes.
Just the best
by Kue-Ball-Tucson on 2019/01/11 22:09
Thanks Everyone. Even Sally’s Cat, Marshmallow helped on this one, I’m sure. Hands down, five stars, every time. There was a SMALL problem a few updates ago (I couldn’t SEND texts. They just seemed to not go nowhere. POOF! Gone. Limbo) but the cat (and the people) were on it, and they fixed it quickly and they even kept me in the loop, letting me know what they were doing about it. I think I appreciate that more than anything, really. I've tried several, but, hands down, Textfree and Pinger are by far... The Best Why? Simple: They Work. Period. They have come a long way to get the superb application you have here today. If you were to install the first release along side this one, you wouldn't BELIEVE the difference. Just one improvement after another, and I did use the first one when it was released, and you know what? It's better than anything else out there as well. Would I switch? Not a chance How much do I have to spend? Not a dime It works, it's free, it's user friendly, available cross platform (iOS and Droid or even PC and MacOS from a browser) What more can you ask? Tuc, Az
Great for texting. Terrible for phone calls
by Shadowhawk176 on 2017/09/29 12:00
This app is great for texting, slick and scaled down user interface makes texting quick and easy, but when it comes to making phone calls, it can barely lock onto a signal and incoming calls often drop before they can connect. Takes way too long to receive a call. Often, by the time the app processes your button click to answer the call, the other party thinks you're not there and hangs up. There also needs to be a way to block calls. This results in much less confidence in giving out your phone number and thereby not using the phone number nearly as much as you would if you were able to block junk calls or annoying people.
Awesome App!

So I LITERALLY was shot with a Shotgun this year (Nearly Tore My Arm Off) Lost My Job because they wouldn’t Let Me Work, Lost All My Money, Lost the Best thing in my Life Of ALL Though. That Was The Love Of My Life. She Left Me Not Too Long After. (She Has Her Reasons Which Is Okay.) But I have been unable to pay for my Phone for Months and Months. Found this app just this Week, Called My Ex With It Left a Voicemail and Then I Heard My Phone Ringing!!!! She Called Me Back. We Talked for a While. I Was Crying on The Phone, She asked me what was wrong, and I told her How Deeply I Had Missed The Sound Of Her Voice. I Hadnt Heard Her Sweet, Angelic Voice In LITERALLY Months. Its Been Torture. Id Rather Had Been Shot Again and Again than have delt with that. But Hearing Her Voice today and Tonight has made my Life soo much Better. God I Love That Woman. I Miss Her Soo Much. Thanks to this App I Was Able To Finally Speak With Her Though and Hear That Pretty Voice Again! Im Glad this App is on here, I Don't Know What Else I Would Have Done Without Hearing Her Voice. It Would Have Drove Me Completely Crazy Not Hearing Her Voice And Being All Alone.

by TeenSkino on 2019/01/10 18:01
I absolutely love this app. I’ve had it since 2012. I use this when I don’t want people to have my number. I also used it as my number when I was using my iPod as a phone in college over the WiFi. Super great back up number. I love it. Incoming calls, text are all free. If someone else has the app it’s free. Outgoing you have to pay for minutes but you can easily just watch a video and earn them for free if you don’t care to spend any money. The only thing I don’t like that they just started is that you HAVE to use the app monthly in order to keep your same number but that’s literally the only downfall. Definitely a 5 Star App!
It’s not very good

I still have it because it’s the only was I can text 2 of my friends and honestly it’s not free you have to watch videos to get calling minutes and you have to buy unlimited minutes if you want to call without have to watch a ton of videos. You get like 5 minutes each video and you have to have enough minutes or your cut off of calling until you have enough. It should be called text cheap not text free! And it’s very glitchy! I don’t really recommend this app if you don’t have to use it to text your friends or something like that. Try some other app and developers hint fix the glitches and make this app more free please. Take my word for it you’ll have way better reviews. GameNinja8708
Great for the last 6 years
by 26yearsaviking on 2019/02/07 21:06
I have been living internationally now for the last 5 years and Pinger has allowed me to keep up with my family and friends. Especially the ones who require a direct line to contact. I am able to easily call about financial, medical, and travel anywhere I have a connection while having a US phone number as a contact. But most of all my grandparents who are still figuring out their smart phones can just dial a familiar number to say hi. It's free if someone calls you!!! Your minutes are only charged if you call. 800 numbers are free as well.
para texting
by kazimir eli on 2018/08/26 04:30
My best friend Josh and I are very close. We’re both poets, and we’re both apart of the same poetry group online. I use TextFree in order to communicate with other group members & him as well, in order to send/receive pieces of writing & work from others. I can’t send/receive long/large texts, because for some reason it splits it into multiple different texts which makes it extremely difficult to copy & share work with. Whether it be recipient or sender, long messages are always cut into multiple texts which are frustrating. I want to be able to receive/send text messages without it splitting it into multiple ones. Normal iMessage doesn’t do it, but my TextFree app definitely does. Help?
The Best
by Nerox1337 on 2018/11/15 18:12
This is the best calling app on the market love this app. With this app I could have two phone numbers great app anyone that’s looking to get a app to make calls this is the one you need....! the only one Textfree app. It doesn’t cost you anything to try it. If you wanna get free minutes all you have to do is watch a 15 to 30 second video and you get like two free minutes. Watching videos your minutes add up or you could buy minutes. Anyway don’t take my word for it just try it and you’ll will see that’s why I gave it a five star rating.
So sad to say I may have to delete
by Glowbug916 on 2019/04/19 06:39
So I have had the same number for years. I actually have like 1400 minutes on this. I absolutely loved it. I used it as a second businessline for years and in the event of phone service being off I can still make emergency calls/texts. It has saved me time and time again when I locked my phone in my car or when it was lost and I needed to call it from my tablet. But after all these years I think I have to switch even though I have so many minutes. Because I nolonger get text messages. I mainly get quotes for my business via texts.... but not now. Its been months and theres no update or anything. This was the only one that actually rang through when ppl called also. The other ones never rings. So I guess I-have to go to another company. 😢😤😤🤯
I love this app
by brookiebug2009 on 2019/01/22 02:43
I like this app a lot because I can text my friends and family and call them without having to get on messenger because I have an iPod but I only gave it a four star rating because when you watch the video to get free minutes which I love you only get one or two minutes which I think you should at least three or four because my family right now can’t afford to give me a real phone so I would also like if it would not take inernet to text and call people especially my family if I have an emergency or something so that’s all I’d like to change. Other than that the app is pretty good
Thank God
by shystee_me on 2018/10/15 11:53
I need help, sense the iOS 12 update I can’t get into my Pinger account. I have so many mins in my account and it won’t open anymore. It’s crashes!!! I use my Pinger app all the time and I am lost with out it. PLEASE help me. I don’t want to go to another app but if there is not a fix I may be forced to. Ok so now that the update had happened. Everything is back to tip top service like it use to be. I was worried for very short period of time that it would not ever return back to top from. I even tried another app. And it was ok...just ok!m
I never got my mins that I earned.
by Torhuu1 on 2018/10/21 08:34
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 canceled my last purchase from this app. Such a scam. This is not legit app.
No Good For Calls Now
by BluesdayTuesday on 2019/06/08 14:48
Ever since latest update which tells me “textfree is now pinger” i cannot make calls. When i make a call i cannot hear anything. The only thing tech support could tell me was to delete and reinstall the app. But I cannot do that, because that will delete all my texts from over 72 hours ago (their servers don’t store them) & i need to keep those texts. I would rate you NO STARS for this bs if i could. And even though my app that i cannot complete a phone call from is now called pinger, the app store has another app called text free which seems to be the exact app i had before they changed it to pinger. But i won’t try installing that one either now. I no longer trust your company. One update ruined my entire experience and opinion of you. I hope it was worth it
Use to work, but doesn't anymore
by Austin blade on 2017/09/13 10:00
Like others, this app was working fine until the newest update. Now the microphone doesn't work. I can hear people but they can't hear me. Every time I make a call. I seen in other reviews that the developer says email I guess the developer and they will check it out. That makes no sense. If they read the reviews then they should be fixing the problem. Not expect an email to get it checked out. Fix the problem. It's that simple. I've been using this app since 2011. I never once had this kind of problem till now. I don't want a reply that says if you email us at... blah blah blah... we will check it out. No! You people do regular updates. Update this and fix the bugs or whatever the problem is. No emails should be necessary or anything like that.
Easy to use and free!
by alwxandria221 on 2018/07/24 14:10
Yes there are some adds but it’s nice to be able to text people from a random number and delete the number if anything happens. VS someone having your personal number forever. I use this for clients that really want a cell number but I don’t want my personal messages getting mixed in with business. I can also disable notifications for the app so if I don’t want to be notified of work for a day, I turn off notifications and check my messages when I’m ready!
Extremely Useful But bugs from new update
by Roo101lalalalala on 2017/11/08 02:55
It's a super useful app, especially if you don't want to pay for a month by month cellular plan. The new simplified esign looks great too! But there seems to be a bug when making a call. When someone calls you, it sounds loud even though you aren't on speaker with them, and when you do turn on speakers, it's turns so quiet you can barely hear it. I also wish that I didn't have to keep refreshing to see a text appearing even though I got the notification for it. Other than that, great app! Keep up with the updates.
ThankU from the bottom of my heart!
by Amgie on 2019/04/10 18:05
2010, I was homeless. I forced myself to be separated from my ex fiancé. I crashed my car. I quit my job because of my child(lack of daycare/barely know anyone in California). I was limited in cash to survive. My phone service got disconnected. TextFree has save my life. I go to Starbucks to get WiFi, to be able to find new jobs. I use my iphone04 to check my emails and websites. Thank you for helping the community to have free access of texting/1800 numbers in coming calls, etc:) #power2You! #makeGreatAmericaAgain!
Inaccurate description
by Candii Ann ;) on 2018/07/25 10:21
UPDATE: I emailed the developer at the email they provided in response to my review and again still never got a response. You don’t receive minutes for half the videos watched-if it doesn’t have an X to close the ad you will not be rewarded. I sent this problem to them as well with no response. They only seem to respond to negative reviews! Still missing almost 100 minutes from completing a paid offer. When you make a phone call-if the person does not answer, it will show 0:06 seconds, but take an entire minute each time. They also charge for calling 1-800 numbers when it clearly stated they are FREE! It used to be a good app, now it’s just a scam. I emailed twice and still have yet to get a response.
New Update Problems
by ChrisFromHell57 on 2018/08/07 21:47
I would give this 5 stars if not for the minor annoyance the new update causes me. The app worked fine before the update. I mainly use it to group message my friends. However, in the newest update, the app doesn't display the names of the people in the group chat, only their numbers. With four other people in the chat besides me, it's sometimes hard to tell who is saying what. Please fix. Edit: New update fixed the problem. 5 stars without hesitation!
So Far So Good
by Sleepingstudents on 2018/01/30 17:09
I tried using nextplus on my iPad recently. And it really sucked. I wouldn't get notified when my girlfriend texted me and it wouldn't show new messages most of the time. This is working so so much better. My only problem is the app likes to freeze up and then close on its own. It's done this maybe 7 times since I got it last night. But I love that I get credits as soon as I downloaded it and that I can send my videos to my friends of my violin rehearsals. I'm not sure if it's me causing the freeze ups or the app. But if would love to know about it getting fixed!
Odd problem?
by funky friends talk on 2018/10/03 12:05
Hey, text free people!👋🏼 I like your app a lot! It makes it so that I can text and talk to my friends that don’t have apple devices, as far as I know, Samsung can get this app too. I’m not sure about other brands, but I’m sure it would work very well also. The one downside is that I can’t send more than one picture at a time, this is really annoying when I have a whole days worth of pics to send to my friends.😩 If you are looking to get this app, please remember this. Although I can receive more than one picture at a time, I can’t send more than one picture at a time. Other than that one slight problem everything it great!😍 I do get occasional calls from numbers that I do not know, but all’s good. The ads aren’t bothersome either like I’ve seen in other apps. Thank you for a wonderful app, but please, if you can, address the problem with not sending more than one picture.
Great free phone App
by jenelee88 on 2019/07/04 18:20
I’ve been using this app like 5 years now and it’s not perfect but it’s close to it and it works great. Voices are heard clearly and I definitely will keep using it for as long at it remains the same..what’s great about this is that the person you are texting or calling doesn’t have to have the same app to be able to use..u can tex anybody on any phone service and it will does require them to have pinger in order to receive pics or messages it’s great!!! I love that
La mejor aplicación
by Lindachicabonita on 2018/07/27 17:08
This is the best app I never seen before. You can talk and text for free.... I been using this app since 6 year with the same phone number... I just have to use to keep the same phone number and plus I have more the one account. You always have ur account if you don’t use it the only thing can happen they will change ur phone number after you log in to ur account. Thanks Textfree...... Me encanta esta aplicación es la mejor que e tenido soy de honduras y estoy contenta con esta aplicación y puedo bajar más de una aplicación y tener 2 o 3 cuentas activas.
Nice when you need a second number
by Hoot_scootaloo on 2019/04/06 05:17
This app is really handy when You need a second number. Just as long as you keep the number working by texting once a month. I do it at least once a week just to be safe. My only problem with the app is that so you may get a number that was previously used (like mine) and you get constant calls about collections and random people messaging for someone who used to have the number
Absolute garbage
by Paigey on 2017/11/27 02:46
Do not download! It's a click bait ad scam, the text service offered never works because the app will constantly close out and try to FORCE you to download third party apps. Anything you tap will redirect you to the App Store. Scam. Poor quality texting experience and outgoing/incoming calls are hardly comprehensible and sounds like you are under water. They make you use the app or lose your number. So basically you HAVE to click ads to use their service, even if you pay monthly to "remove ads". That is an illegal way to offer services for "free". They also sell your information because I have never had problems until shortly after singing up for textfree.
Great, my primary phone
by tampico-chan on 2018/01/31 02:37
I don’t use a real phone and this has been my primary way of contacting people for over 5 years. All of my issues were fixed with the different version of the app. I’m not positive why there are two versions in the App Store, but whatever people need I guess. One thing though, you guys used to do Doodle Buddy which I love and still have, but I know some people who are really bummed you can’t download it anymore. Any chance that could ever come back..? XD
A great extra line
by yodagee on 2018/05/12 14:22
Every time I'm in good Wi-Fi I get a great call. Thanks text free. I have sensitivity issues with the computer and have a basic phone as my service provider, but I can't receive pictures or multimedia text on it. Being able to use an iPhone more like a tablet and turn it off while it's not being used but being able to receive picture texts and multimedia text through text free is a great blessing.
One of the greatest apps in the App Store
by Oldgamer38 on 2018/01/23 07:10
This app allows me to text and call people from my old iPad 2 over wifi FOR FREE. The calls are clear with rarely any breakup in audio. When I runout of time I can watch advertisements to get more (and sometimes see other apps worth investigating because I don't look around the App Store often). I am in poor health with a very limited income so this app is absolutely revolutionary to me. An incredible service.
Awesome app!
by 1837203 on 2018/12/10 19:08
I purchase my iPhone 8+ last December and since I paid almost $1k for it, I didn’t want to have any bills. Especially because I have WiFi most places I’m at! So I’ve been using textfree the whole time and it’s perfect. My job has this number, my recruiter, my family. And I never have any problems! Using this has saved me over 700$ if I would have been paying for service all these months since I got my phone! So god bless!
Calling & Receiving Calls
by Keys.Universe on 2018/09/24 22:14
I really appreciate how efficient it was to pay for minutes using my Apple account however, the service through the app isn’t as up-to-par as I like sometimes people can’t hear me or there’s feedback and I have great service on using my actual phone service/outside of app so I understand why that is? Also when people call my phone it doesn’t vibrate or ring and I’m receiving the call or voicemail much later. Overall this app has been so helpful.
Love it
by FreD ...... on 2018/10/05 03:09
I think that you guys should make it easier to get minutes because I’m pretty young and don’t have a lot of money but each the videos for the minutes but that only gives you one so not very good but I love ❤️the app it’s really good but when I call my nana I run out of minutes and have to watch a lot of videos and that’s not fun but I love the app and mean no offense and the app is great please look at this review and thank you 💙❤️❤️💜💚💜❤️💙💙
Great app, however...
by Sarcasticalories on 2019/08/14 03:57
This app is great, I got it because I have iPod and can only text other people that have an apple product, but not everyone in my family has an iPhone. So I got this app to be able to talk to my parents and siblings, but most of the time I don’t get a notification when they text or call me. I do sometimes, but not always. It doesn’t even show the little 1 marker on the app showing I have something. This is my only complaint about the app tho, so, good job! 😊
Having problems! HELP!
by S. Hayes on 2019/08/05 04:07
My app just stopped functioning all together keeps saying I need a new number and won’t allow me to do anything even when I choose a different one. It allows me to choose my same number(which I’d love to keep) but still won’t function. I can’t text, can’t call. It just repeatedly does the same thing and also it changes my number on its own and every number it says has expired due to inactivity. Fix it Pinger! Please & Thank you! Other than that, great app! But H E L P!
I am changin’ my ratin’ for this app. For the better by 2 stars!
by Bloomoon_420 on 2019/03/30 01:48
I originally had given 2 stars. It has since over the years improved tremendously. I really like this app. I use it all day, every day to communicate w/ my friend and family. My only problem w/ it is the echo for whoever I talk to! If it wasn’t for that problem, I would not only b usin’ it in cases of emergency!!! I would use it all day every day to call my friends & family instead of only textin’! But I still, love this app inspite of the phone echo. Thanks
Love it
by onikisan on 2018/05/17 01:10
I love this app been using it since 2010 in the military I have used it over seas and it works amazing with slow internet even get to call home on any device that I can use this app on prices for minutes are cheap and they last long enough to enjoy them, the free ones I can get from videos are also a great thing they provide I've recommended this app to tones of friends and family they also love it.
Great App for 2nd Phone #
by MeInD-town on 2018/04/26 12:10
After using a couple of other apps before, I tried this one due to good reviews. I haven’t been disappointed so far. Working well and reliably. Still using preferably my iOS Messages App, but TextFree is a great tool if you need a second phone number to separate business from private. 5 stars well-deserved! Keep it running by updating the app always to the newest iOS version! Thanks for making it free!
It works good and I enjoy it!
by agavsndhkdbsdnsnnsj on 2019/01/03 14:24
I use it to call family members if I forget my email or setting a email up I use this number to verify it’s me The only thing that I hate is getting the warning that say if I don’t use TextFree my account number will be changed I think. I don’t text or call my family members every day only the ones who have no iPhone only my mom and my oldest sister have a mobile phone
Everything it promises!
by NicoleRey on 2018/10/30 03:13
Whoda thunk it? A “free” ap that (at least so far) is allowing text & a call without an immediate requirement for credits or minutes or anything else. The pop up ads are annoying but it is what it is.. they’re not obtrusive. Some apps make it impossible to even communicate via text bcuz they’re constantly opening with keystrokes you meant for your typed message! I give it 👍🏼👍🏼
Great app, but terrible sound quality
by JCTpiglet on 2018/05/07 19:26
Have used this app for nearly 2 years, in multiple locations around the US, on Verizon cellular and on WiFi, and no matter who I call, I get repeated complaints from the people on the other end that they can barely hear me, even if I have 5 bars on cellular or am sitting next to a WiFi source. I usually end up having to call them back in my real cell number, which defeats the purpose of this app. Would be five stars if they could provide better, consistent sound quality.
Free Text and Calls
by kmfmgc on 2018/04/22 16:09
I have had textfree for about 5 years now and I love it. I can receive calls as well. Textfree can do everything your carrier text can do. It can send pics, videos, docs, it can access any info from your phone as well like photos, docs, contacts etc.. plus it works just like the built in text service that comes with your phone. Give it a try!!
Amazing but...
by livylu126 on 2018/04/04 02:10
Hi I think there should be only a few improvements I don’t want hate or anything for telling my feelings. I think the ads should be removed because I keep accidentally pressing them while I’m typing and it bothers me a lot. And also when I receive a message it never ever rings or buzzes. And I have my ringer on and my volume. Please if the person who made this app help me I would appreciate it.
You need this app!
by Glennwalker003 on 2019/06/13 03:52
I use this app a lot! It works great! I have it on my ipad,iPod,iPhone too! The pinger app works better than any phone I have had! iPhone too! Pinger sends it very fast and great quality too! When my contract is up on my iPhone I will not be buying another digital phone. I have no use for it after using Pinger I have Wi-Fi everywhere I go. I will never have a use for a digital phone ever again!
My Feelings About Text free
by SandDrw on 2018/05/25 15:10
Text free has been a very good service for me. It has allowed me to use my iPad as a communication device between me and my three children and husband. It also provides en emergency phone when I am sitting with my 1 year old grandson. Being able to do that, I do not require a cell phone. That saves me money. I prefer my iPad to a cell phone. So, it’s a win, win that makes me happy, happy!!

It is just as reliable as an actual phone number.” –Kay “I’ve tried several, but hands down, Pinger is by far the best. Why? Simple: It works.

I've been using Pinger for several years now. It's so handy to be able to give my friends, family, and business contacts a US number they can call or text for free even when I'm overseas. Pinger voicemail works great too. Thank you Pinger!

Great app, however...
by Sarcasticalories on 2019/08/14 03:57
This app is great, I got it because I have iPod and can only text other people that have an apple product, but not everyone in my family has an iPhone. So I got this app to be able to talk to my parents and siblings, but most of the time I don’t get a notification when they text or call me. I do sometimes, but not always. It doesn’t even show the little 1 marker on the app showing I have something. This is my only complaint about the app tho, so, good job! 😊
Great!

I have an email and not a phone number so this just makes it a lot easier knowing that I can call and text people without an apple device.

I’ve been using the Pinger app for several years. I also have the talk feature. I particularly appreciate the ability to use this app across devices. When texting is restricted to cell phone it is easy to miss messages that require a timely response. I highly recommend this app for anyone who uses more than one device during the day. lol

by G2Vid on 2019/08/07 21:08
A bit slow to load, slow to select contacts. Layout while typing could be improved; too much space consumed by ads during typing. HOWEVER, my shock of finding out my cell carrier doesn’t include calls from the US to Mexico and Canada (very expensive add-on!) was offset by the PLESANT shock of finding out I can use PINGER at the normal time-based rate.

Excellent Supplementary Phone Service
by Ambiverbal on 2019/08/07 18:21
Pinger/TextFree has been one of the most useful apps on my iPhone for years. When I'm overseas, Pinger allows me to text folks back in the USA for free, all while I use a local SIM card. (Recipients don't even know I've left the country unless I tell them.) And when I'm home, I have a desk phone at my office. I use Pinger for my business texting number, which lets me keep my primary cell phone number private. Pinger has brought me great service, convenience, and reduced cost from the moment I downloaded it. I regularly recommend it to friends and coworkers. Grazie, danke, mercí, gracias, thank you!

It allows me to choose my same number(which I’d love to keep) but still won’t function. I can’t text, can’t call. It just repeatedly does the same thing and also it changes my number on its own and every number it says has expired due to inactivity. Fix it Pinger! Please & Thank you! Other than that, great app!

by TheSoundNan on 2018/01/12 18:28
I tried nearly a I half-dozen different services like text free. By that I mean the different companies that offer voice and texting services. I knew the dozen I think it was actually four or five over the last two years that whole process of shutting up with your email and setting up your phone to work with your system getting phone number and starting to use the new phone number with your family and friends and perhaps business associates and then if it doesn’t work out very well is an absolute mess!! Sure you put the learn to possibly look at the reviews. The trash out that that’s still not full pool. Typically finish up this review, after a little more than a full year of using Textfree and I personally have two numbers with Textfree and three other family members have Textfree I considerate absolutely unbelievably fantastic and bulletproof. The guys that run this thing have really put a lot into it. All I can say is that we love it. Oh and by the way 100 minutes for a couple of bucks, well are you kidding. I hope this year on forever. Thanks guys, Michael And family and friends
Free calls, voicemail and texting
by Tdeberry on 2019/04/06 10:43
I have been using TextFree for quite awhile now. It is absolutely free calling, texting and voicemail. It works very well as long as you are connected to a reliable WiFi. The only problem I’ve ever had is sometimes when I answer an incoming call, the call drops. However, I do use this service instead of my Paid Cell Phone Service for when I don’t want to give out my Paid Cell Service Number such as surveys. I also use my TextFree number for friends and family who don’t have a paid cell service phone number so that I can text or call them free of charge. This is my back up phone number when I don’t want to receive telemarking calls. I am giving it 4 stars. I took off one point for the dropped calls. Otherwise it’s a pretty good service and is completely free to other TextFree numbers, any and all incoming calls are also totally free. As long as you make or receive one answered call or send atleast one text per month, you will not lose your selected phone number. I also like that you can watch videos or ads to gain extra minutes to make calls to non-TextFree numbers. Incoming calls and incoming and outgoing text messages are always free. I would definitely recommend this app for anyone who is looking for a Free WiFi calling and texting service.
Here are some facts.
by w1selabs on 2018/03/13 18:20
In the past, if you bought minutes and saved them up, then lost the number to not using it for 30 days, you were screwed. The number was free to anyone and fast. Since that experience many years ago, I use it everyday. Not sure if that’s all changed but that’s how you avoided problems back then with this app. Use it once a week even, but do use it or else. lol Besides “accidentally” opening the ad when I’m texting others (constantly), this app still provides a great service to whomever uses it. The voicemail features a top notch. Your options for the app are just as awesome. Once I got 100mbps WiFi it works as good as my landline. In 10mbps it works but with a strong delay and some issues. I can change my number anytime & if I don’t like who has my number I can block them or vanish. Perfect for avoiding stalkers and drama. 4 stars for latest updates. The devs are really getting it to perfection. 5 stars for the app in general. It’s FREE! I save so much money by including this app in my professional life. So I’m-not ever giving up on it. Try it out. You’ll see for yourself. THE RECENT 3 month old BAD NEWS: they have ads running pop up scripts that take over your screen and take you to your browser outside of the app. Whoever allowed it should be fired. Flat out. No explanations or excuses. Gone. I won’t use this until it’s fixed. VERY SUSPICIOUS BUSINESS.
Won't give it 1 star just because
by Still Lonely on 2018/01/07 21:54
I have used this app for a few years and finally feel I should review it. It was great. You do get what you pay for and it didn't cost me anything so it was wonderful being able to text or make calls free. I didn't always get the free minutes the the tap joy offers but I had time to waste so no big deal. I never wanted to rate it but now that I am unable to use it anymore I will say this: It was great when it worked. Update after update changing the appearance and including stickers (causing some dialogs to be lost upon update) and everything else was frustrating but the whole "free" part made it easy to deal with. Now with the most recent updates I could not send pics and now I can't even send a text without closing the app and starting again a few times. Now that it has been updated beyond use I give it 3 stars to give it credit for when it worked. I would give it 0 stars for the performance over the past few weeks. Looking for a replacement app after rating. Disappointed.
Overall Great App!
by G8dgetgirl on 2019/06/14 06:39
Pinger/Text Free is my go to app for a second line. The platform is simple and easy to use. The overall signal is as stable, as your wifi provides. They have a good selection of numbers from you to choose from, theres not an overwhelming amount of ads, Texting is free no matter what, however, You do need to add minutes for talk in which you have the option to pay for them, or you, can watch short video ads, and participate in consumer offers, free trials, opinions/surveys to accrue them. They make it very reasonable no matter which option you choose to get minutes. I personally dont participate in watching ads and taking surveys nor do i write reviews very often, and pinger has me doing both. Ha! Thanks pinger, keep up the good work
When all else fails....
by CiaoBellina on 2018/11/28 22:49
I had to download an app that would allow me to reach family members who were on the same bill same cell company and even shared a feature where our line to lines are free. Not sure how my phone suddenly was unable to connect with texting or actual phone calls to them I found Textfree as I found myself in a frantic trying to reach my sons father n even my own mother. It downloaded within seconds, opened easily with directions so simple it was within at most 2 minutes to set up n connected me to both of those I was reaching out for frantically. Thanks to Textfree I was able to get messages and other vital information I needed to within minutes.
Just the best
by Kue-Ball-Tucson on 2019/01/11 22:09
Thanks Everyone. Even Sally’s Cat, Marshmallow helped on this one, I’m sure. Hands down, five stars, every time. There was a SMALL problem a few updates ago (I couldn’t SEND texts. They just seemed to not go nowhere. POOF! Gone. Limbo) but the cat (and the people) were on it, and they fixed it quickly and they even kept me in the loop, letting me know what they were doing about it. I think I appreciate that more than anything, really. I've tried several, but, hands down, Textfree and Pinger are by far... The Best Why? Simple: They Work. Period. They have come a long way to get the superb application you have here today. If you were to install the first release along side this one, you wouldn't BELIEVE the difference. Just one improvement after another, and I did use the first one when it was released, and you know what? It's better than anything else out there as well. Would I switch? Not a chance How much do I have to spend? Not a dime It works, it's free, it's user friendly, available cross platform (iOS and Droid or even PC and MacOS from a browser) What more can you ask? Tuc, Az
Great for texting. Terrible for phone calls
by Shadowhawk176 on 2017/09/29 12:00
This app is great for texting, slick and scaled down user interface makes texting quick and easy, but when it comes to making phone calls, it can barely lock onto a signal and incoming calls often drop before they can connect. Takes way too long to receive a call. Often, by the time the app processes your button click to answer the call, the other party thinks you're not there and hangs up. There also needs to be a way to block calls. This results in much less confidence in giving out your phone number and thereby not using the phone number nearly as much as you would if you were able to block junk calls or annoying people.
Awesome App!

So I LITERALLY was shot with a Shotgun this year (Nearly Tore My Arm Off) Lost My Job because they wouldn’t Let Me Work, Lost All My Money, Lost the Best thing in my Life Of ALL Though. That Was The Love Of My Life. She Left Me Not Too Long After. (She Has Her Reasons Which Is Okay.) But I have been unable to pay for my Phone for Months and Months. Found this app just this Week, Called My Ex With It Left a Voicemail and Then I Heard My Phone Ringing!!!! She Called Me Back. We Talked for a While. I Was Crying on The Phone, She asked me what was wrong, and I told her How Deeply I Had Missed The Sound Of Her Voice. I Hadnt Heard Her Sweet, Angelic Voice In LITERALLY Months. Its Been Torture. Id Rather Had Been Shot Again and Again than have delt with that. But Hearing Her Voice today and Tonight has made my Life soo much Better. God I Love That Woman. I Miss Her Soo Much. Thanks to this App I Was Able To Finally Speak With Her Though and Hear That Pretty Voice Again! Im Glad this App is on here, I Don't Know What Else I Would Have Done Without Hearing Her Voice. It Would Have Drove Me Completely Crazy Not Hearing Her Voice And Being All Alone.

by TeenSkino on 2019/01/10 18:01
I absolutely love this app. I’ve had it since 2012. I use this when I don’t want people to have my number. I also used it as my number when I was using my iPod as a phone in college over the WiFi. Super great back up number. I love it. Incoming calls, text are all free. If someone else has the app it’s free. Outgoing you have to pay for minutes but you can easily just watch a video and earn them for free if you don’t care to spend any money. The only thing I don’t like that they just started is that you HAVE to use the app monthly in order to keep your same number but that’s literally the only downfall. Definitely a 5 Star App!
It’s not very good
by firekorty🐱 on 2019/07/03 21:16
I still have it because it’s the only was I can text 2 of my friends and honestly it’s not free you have to watch videos to get calling minutes and you have to buy unlimited minutes if you want to call without have to watch a ton of videos. You get like 5 minutes each video and you have to have enough minutes or your cut off of calling until you have enough. It should be called text cheap not text free! And it’s very glitchy! I don’t really recommend this app if you don’t have to use it to text your friends or something like that. Try some other app and developers hint fix the glitches and make this app more free please. Take my word for it you’ll have way better reviews. GameNinja8708
Great for the last 6 years
by 26yearsaviking on 2019/02/07 21:06
I have been living internationally now for the last 5 years and Pinger has allowed me to keep up with my family and friends. Especially the ones who require a direct line to contact. I am able to easily call about financial, medical, and travel anywhere I have a connection while having a US phone number as a contact. But most of all my grandparents who are still figuring out their smart phones can just dial a familiar number to say hi. It's free if someone calls you!!! Your minutes are only charged if you call. 800 numbers are free as well.
para texting
by kazimir eli on 2018/08/26 04:30
My best friend Josh and I are very close. We’re both poets, and we’re both apart of the same poetry group online. I use TextFree in order to communicate with other group members & him as well, in order to send/receive pieces of writing & work from others. I can’t send/receive long/large texts, because for some reason it splits it into multiple different texts which makes it extremely difficult to copy & share work with. Whether it be recipient or sender, long messages are always cut into multiple texts which are frustrating. I want to be able to receive/send text messages without it splitting it into multiple ones. Normal iMessage doesn’t do it, but my TextFree app definitely does. Help?
The Best
by Nerox1337 on 2018/11/15 18:12
This is the best calling app on the market love this app. With this app I could have two phone numbers great app anyone that’s looking to get a app to make calls this is the one you need....! the only one Textfree app. It doesn’t cost you anything to try it. If you wanna get free minutes all you have to do is watch a 15 to 30 second video and you get like two free minutes. Watching videos your minutes add up or you could buy minutes. Anyway don’t take my word for it just try it and you’ll will see that’s why I gave it a five star rating.
So sad to say I may have to delete
by Glowbug916 on 2019/04/19 06:39
So I have had the same number for years. I actually have like 1400 minutes on this. I absolutely loved it. I used it as a second businessline for years and in the event of phone service being off I can still make emergency calls/texts. It has saved me time and time again when I locked my phone in my car or when it was lost and I needed to call it from my tablet. But after all these years I think I have to switch even though I have so many minutes. Because I nolonger get text messages. I mainly get quotes for my business via texts.... but not now. Its been months and theres no update or anything. This was the only one that actually rang through when ppl called also. The other ones never rings. So I guess I-have to go to another company. 😢😤😤🤯
I love this app
by brookiebug2009 on 2019/01/22 02:43
I like this app a lot because I can text my friends and family and call them without having to get on messenger because I have an iPod but I only gave it a four star rating because when you watch the video to get free minutes which I love you only get one or two minutes which I think you should at least three or four because my family right now can’t afford to give me a real phone so I would also like if it would not take inernet to text and call people especially my family if I have an emergency or something so that’s all I’d like to change. Other than that the app is pretty good
Thank God

I need help, sense the iOS 12 update I can’t get into my Pinger account. I have so many mins in my account and it won’t open anymore. It’s crashes!!! I use my Pinger app all the time and I am lost with out it. PLEASE help me. I don’t want to go to another app but if there is not a fix I may be forced to. Ok so now that the update had happened. Everything is back to tip top service like it use to be. I was worried for very short period of time that it would not ever return back to top from. I even tried another app. And it was ok...just ok!m
I never got my mins that I earned.
by Torhuu1 on 2018/10/21 08:34
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 canceled my last purchase from this app. Such a scam. This is not legit app.

by BluesdayTuesday on 2019/06/08 14:48
Ever since latest update which tells me “textfree is now pinger” i cannot make calls. When i make a call i cannot hear anything. The only thing tech support could tell me was to delete and reinstall the app. But I cannot do that, because that will delete all my texts from over 72 hours ago (their servers don’t store them) & i need to keep those texts. I would rate you NO STARS for this bs if i could. And even though my app that i cannot complete a phone call from is now called pinger, the app store has another app called text free which seems to be the exact app i had before they changed it to pinger. But i won’t try installing that one either now. I no longer trust your company. One update ruined my entire experience and opinion of you. I hope it was worth it
Use to work, but doesn't anymore
by Austin blade on 2017/09/13 10:00
Like others, this app was working fine until the newest update. Now the microphone doesn't work. I can hear people but they can't hear me. Every time I make a call. I seen in other reviews that the developer says email I guess the developer and they will check it out. That makes no sense. If they read the reviews then they should be fixing the problem. Not expect an email to get it checked out. Fix the problem. It's that simple. I've been using this app since 2011. I never once had this kind of problem till now. I don't want a reply that says if you email us at... blah blah blah... we will check it out. No! You people do regular updates. Update this and fix the bugs or whatever the problem is. No emails should be necessary or anything like that.
Easy to use and free!
by alwxandria221 on 2018/07/24 14:10
Yes there are some adds but it’s nice to be able to text people from a random number and delete the number if anything happens. VS someone having your personal number forever. I use this for clients that really want a cell number but I don’t want my personal messages getting mixed in with business. I can also disable notifications for the app so if I don’t want to be notified of work for a day, I turn off notifications and check my messages when I’m ready!
Extremely Useful But bugs from new update
by Roo101lalalalala on 2017/11/08 02:55
It's a super useful app, especially if you don't want to pay for a month by month cellular plan. The new simplified esign looks great too! But there seems to be a bug when making a call. When someone calls you, it sounds loud even though you aren't on speaker with them, and when you do turn on speakers, it's turns so quiet you can barely hear it. I also wish that I didn't have to keep refreshing to see a text appearing even though I got the notification for it. Other than that, great app! Keep up with the updates.
ThankU from the bottom of my heart!

2010, I was homeless. I forced myself to be separated from my ex fiancé. I crashed my car. I quit my job because of my child(lack of daycare/barely know anyone in California). I was limited in cash to survive. My phone service got disconnected. TextFree has save my life. I go to Starbucks to get WiFi, to be able to find new jobs. I use my iphone04 to check my emails and websites. Thank you for helping the community to have free access of texting/1800 numbers in coming calls, etc:) #power2You! #makeGreatAmericaAgain!
Inaccurate description
by Candii Ann ;) on 2018/07/25 10:21
UPDATE: I emailed the developer at the email they provided in response to my review and again still never got a response. You don’t receive minutes for half the videos watched-if it doesn’t have an X to close the ad you will not be rewarded. I sent this problem to them as well with no response. They only seem to respond to negative reviews! Still missing almost 100 minutes from completing a paid offer. When you make a phone call-if the person does not answer, it will show 0:06 seconds, but take an entire minute each time. They also charge for calling 1-800 numbers when it clearly stated they are FREE! It used to be a good app, now it’s just a scam. I emailed twice and still have yet to get a response.
New Update Problems
by ChrisFromHell57 on 2018/08/07 21:47
I would give this 5 stars if not for the minor annoyance the new update causes me. The app worked fine before the update. I mainly use it to group message my friends. However, in the newest update, the app doesn't display the names of the people in the group chat, only their numbers. With four other people in the chat besides me, it's sometimes hard to tell who is saying what. Please fix. Edit: New update fixed the problem. 5 stars without hesitation!
So Far So Good
by Sleepingstudents on 2018/01/30 17:09
I tried using nextplus on my iPad recently. And it really sucked. I wouldn't get notified when my girlfriend texted me and it wouldn't show new messages most of the time. This is working so so much better. My only problem is the app likes to freeze up and then close on its own. It's done this maybe 7 times since I got it last night. But I love that I get credits as soon as I downloaded it and that I can send my videos to my friends of my violin rehearsals. I'm not sure if it's me causing the freeze ups or the app. But if would love to know about it getting fixed!
Odd problem?
by funky friends talk on 2018/10/03 12:05
Hey, text free people!👋🏼 I like your app a lot! It makes it so that I can text and talk to my friends that don’t have apple devices, as far as I know, Samsung can get this app too. I’m not sure about other brands, but I’m sure it would work very well also. The one downside is that I can’t send more than one picture at a time, this is really annoying when I have a whole days worth of pics to send to my friends.😩 If you are looking to get this app, please remember this. Although I can receive more than one picture at a time, I can’t send more than one picture at a time. Other than that one slight problem everything it great!😍 I do get occasional calls from numbers that I do not know, but all’s good. The ads aren’t bothersome either like I’ve seen in other apps. Thank you for a wonderful app, but please, if you can, address the problem with not sending more than one picture.
Great free phone App
by jenelee88 on 2019/07/04 18:20
I’ve been using this app like 5 years now and it’s not perfect but it’s close to it and it works great. Voices are heard clearly and I definitely will keep using it for as long at it remains the same..what’s great about this is that the person you are texting or calling doesn’t have to have the same app to be able to use..u can tex anybody on any phone service and it will does require them to have pinger in order to receive pics or messages it’s great!!! I love that
La mejor aplicación
by Lindachicabonita on 2018/07/27 17:08
This is the best app I never seen before. You can talk and text for free.... I been using this app since 6 year with the same phone number... I just have to use to keep the same phone number and plus I have more the one account. You always have ur account if you don’t use it the only thing can happen they will change ur phone number after you log in to ur account. Thanks Textfree...... Me encanta esta aplicación es la mejor que e tenido soy de honduras y estoy contenta con esta aplicación y puedo bajar más de una aplicación y tener 2 o 3 cuentas activas.
Nice when you need a second number
by Hoot_scootaloo on 2019/04/06 05:17
This app is really handy when You need a second number. Just as long as you keep the number working by texting once a month. I do it at least once a week just to be safe. My only problem with the app is that so you may get a number that was previously used (like mine) and you get constant calls about collections and random people messaging for someone who used to have the number
Absolute garbage
by Paigey on 2017/11/27 02:46
Do not download! It's a click bait ad scam, the text service offered never works because the app will constantly close out and try to FORCE you to download third party apps. Anything you tap will redirect you to the App Store. Scam. Poor quality texting experience and outgoing/incoming calls are hardly comprehensible and sounds like you are under water. They make you use the app or lose your number. So basically you HAVE to click ads to use their service, even if you pay monthly to "remove ads". That is an illegal way to offer services for "free". They also sell your information because I have never had problems until shortly after singing up for textfree.
Great, my primary phone
by tampico-chan on 2018/01/31 02:37
I don’t use a real phone and this has been my primary way of contacting people for over 5 years. All of my issues were fixed with the different version of the app. I’m not positive why there are two versions in the App Store, but whatever people need I guess. One thing though, you guys used to do Doodle Buddy which I love and still have, but I know some people who are really bummed you can’t download it anymore. Any chance that could ever come back..? XD
A great extra line
by yodagee on 2018/05/12 14:22
Every time I'm in good Wi-Fi I get a great call. Thanks text free. I have sensitivity issues with the computer and have a basic phone as my service provider, but I can't receive pictures or multimedia text on it. Being able to use an iPhone more like a tablet and turn it off while it's not being used but being able to receive picture texts and multimedia text through text free is a great blessing.
One of the greatest apps in the App Store
by Oldgamer38 on 2018/01/23 07:10
This app allows me to text and call people from my old iPad 2 over wifi FOR FREE. The calls are clear with rarely any breakup in audio. When I runout of time I can watch advertisements to get more (and sometimes see other apps worth investigating because I don't look around the App Store often). I am in poor health with a very limited income so this app is absolutely revolutionary to me. An incredible service.
Awesome app!
by 1837203 on 2018/12/10 19:08
I purchase my iPhone 8+ last December and since I paid almost $1k for it, I didn’t want to have any bills. Especially because I have WiFi most places I’m at! So I’ve been using textfree the whole time and it’s perfect. My job has this number, my recruiter, my family. And I never have any problems! Using this has saved me over 700$ if I would have been paying for service all these months since I got my phone! So god bless!
Calling & Receiving Calls
by Keys.Universe on 2018/09/24 22:14
I really appreciate how efficient it was to pay for minutes using my Apple account however, the service through the app isn’t as up-to-par as I like sometimes people can’t hear me or there’s feedback and I have great service on using my actual phone service/outside of app so I understand why that is? Also when people call my phone it doesn’t vibrate or ring and I’m receiving the call or voicemail much later. Overall this app has been so helpful.
Love it
by FreD ...... on 2018/10/05 03:09
I think that you guys should make it easier to get minutes because I’m pretty young and don’t have a lot of money but each the videos for the minutes but that only gives you one so not very good but I love ❤️the app it’s really good but when I call my nana I run out of minutes and have to watch a lot of videos and that’s not fun but I love the app and mean no offense and the app is great please look at this review and thank you 💙❤️❤️💜💚💜❤️💙💙
Great app, however...
by Sarcasticalories on 2019/08/14 03:57
This app is great, I got it because I have iPod and can only text other people that have an apple product, but not everyone in my family has an iPhone. So I got this app to be able to talk to my parents and siblings, but most of the time I don’t get a notification when they text or call me. I do sometimes, but not always. It doesn’t even show the little 1 marker on the app showing I have something. This is my only complaint about the app tho, so, good job! 😊
Having problems! HELP!
by S. Hayes on 2019/08/05 04:07
My app just stopped functioning all together keeps saying I need a new number and won’t allow me to do anything even when I choose a different one. It allows me to choose my same number(which I’d love to keep) but still won’t function. I can’t text, can’t call. It just repeatedly does the same thing and also it changes my number on its own and every number it says has expired due to inactivity. Fix it Pinger! Please & Thank you! Other than that, great app! But H E L P!
I am changin’ my ratin’ for this app. For the better by 2 stars!
by Bloomoon_420 on 2019/03/30 01:48
I originally had given 2 stars. It has since over the years improved tremendously. I really like this app. I use it all day, every day to communicate w/ my friend and family. My only problem w/ it is the echo for whoever I talk to! If it wasn’t for that problem, I would not only b usin’ it in cases of emergency!!! I would use it all day every day to call my friends & family instead of only textin’! But I still, love this app inspite of the phone echo. Thanks
Love it
by onikisan on 2018/05/17 01:10
I love this app been using it since 2010 in the military I have used it over seas and it works amazing with slow internet even get to call home on any device that I can use this app on prices for minutes are cheap and they last long enough to enjoy them, the free ones I can get from videos are also a great thing they provide I've recommended this app to tones of friends and family they also love it.
Great App for 2nd Phone #
by MeInD-town on 2018/04/26 12:10
After using a couple of other apps before, I tried this one due to good reviews. I haven’t been disappointed so far. Working well and reliably. Still using preferably my iOS Messages App, but TextFree is a great tool if you need a second phone number to separate business from private. 5 stars well-deserved! Keep it running by updating the app always to the newest iOS version! Thanks for making it free!
It works good and I enjoy it!
by agavsndhkdbsdnsnnsj on 2019/01/03 14:24
I use it to call family members if I forget my email or setting a email up I use this number to verify it’s me The only thing that I hate is getting the warning that say if I don’t use TextFree my account number will be changed I think. I don’t text or call my family members every day only the ones who have no iPhone only my mom and my oldest sister have a mobile phone
Everything it promises!
by NicoleRey on 2018/10/30 03:13
Whoda thunk it? A “free” ap that (at least so far) is allowing text & a call without an immediate requirement for credits or minutes or anything else. The pop up ads are annoying but it is what it is.. they’re not obtrusive. Some apps make it impossible to even communicate via text bcuz they’re constantly opening with keystrokes you meant for your typed message! I give it 👍🏼👍🏼
Great app, but terrible sound quality
by JCTpiglet on 2018/05/07 19:26
Have used this app for nearly 2 years, in multiple locations around the US, on Verizon cellular and on WiFi, and no matter who I call, I get repeated complaints from the people on the other end that they can barely hear me, even if I have 5 bars on cellular or am sitting next to a WiFi source. I usually end up having to call them back in my real cell number, which defeats the purpose of this app. Would be five stars if they could provide better, consistent sound quality.
Free Text and Calls
by kmfmgc on 2018/04/22 16:09
I have had textfree for about 5 years now and I love it. I can receive calls as well. Textfree can do everything your carrier text can do. It can send pics, videos, docs, it can access any info from your phone as well like photos, docs, contacts etc.. plus it works just like the built in text service that comes with your phone. Give it a try!!
Amazing but...
by livylu126 on 2018/04/04 02:10
Hi I think there should be only a few improvements I don’t want hate or anything for telling my feelings. I think the ads should be removed because I keep accidentally pressing them while I’m typing and it bothers me a lot. And also when I receive a message it never ever rings or buzzes. And I have my ringer on and my volume. Please if the person who made this app help me I would appreciate it.
You need this app!
by Glennwalker003 on 2019/06/13 03:52
I use this app a lot! It works great! I have it on my ipad,iPod,iPhone too! The pinger app works better than any phone I have had! iPhone too! Pinger sends it very fast and great quality too! When my contract is up on my iPhone I will not be buying another digital phone. I have no use for it after using Pinger I have Wi-Fi everywhere I go. I will never have a use for a digital phone ever again!
My Feelings About Text free
by SandDrw on 2018/05/25 15:10
Text free has been a very good service for me. It has allowed me to use my iPad as a communication device between me and my three children and husband. It also provides en emergency phone when I am sitting with my 1 year old grandson. Being able to do that, I do not require a cell phone. That saves me money. I prefer my iPad to a cell phone. So, it’s a win, win that makes me happy, happy!!
