Deleting the app...
by A dissappointedd reviewer on 2021/04/19 23:20
I had two phone numbers but I lost the first one because some type of error happened and because I had not made an account I had bo way of fixing that. So I made an account and got a new number. Had the number for a few days and I’m now signed out AGAIN. I’ve tried to contact customer service for a ticket, nothing. I’ve reset my password like 4 times and now it’s telling something has gone wrong and sending me through the same process again and again. I can’t get back into my account now. Lol, this is like my message to customer service since I didn’t get an answer. I gave this app two starts because, before it logged me out and basically locked both of my numbers to the point where I can no longer use them, the app actually worked and had potential. Moving on to a better one.
I would have rated it zero stars

Too many ads!!!
by Tj88keys on 2021/04/10 17:28
It’s out of control. When I used this app a few years ago there was an occasional banner ad, but to have to wait through a video ad after each message is too much. Will be looking for an alternative.

Scam
by Michaelohagen on 2021/03/24 16:13
This service is a scam, it stopped working and constantly giving error codes about 4 yrs ago, I decided to try it again because it really is the best price for a virtual phone number and sure enough still the same continual issues... Constant http 503 error codes meaning their services are unable to make calls.
Cannot Earn Credits
by macusers608 on 2021/03/22 19:31
Just got a new number. I can’t earn any credits because videos are never available and when I finally get a video after days of trying, I don’t get credit for watching it! I can’t use the number for my bank or other business because it doesn’t support short code SMS. Completely useless.

by Sassychicgirl9 on 2021/03/17 20:15
This app gets stuck sometimes on advertisements and takes a long time to receive a text depending on the time of day. If alot of users, then it takes longer to get the text. Other than that, it works fine receiving images, texts, and emoji.

Would like to give 5 stars but•••:
by Mychele_Belle on 2021/03/04 04:26
I’ve been using this app for well over a year now and I’ve always had this same problem from day 1, I can make calls fine, but answering a call has always been a no go. When I make a call everything works great. When someone tries to call me there’s a choice of issues and at least one happens. I won’t hear the call coming through. I don’t hear the call until the 3rd ring or later. When I DO hear the ring and try to answer the call, the call has already ended. If I am lucky enough to catch the call and answer it the person calling me NEVER hears me. A while back I would of felt rather petty to complain about anything because it was a free app and everything else worked great. However, now I’m contributing money to the app and still having the issue with the apps phone. If you could fix the faults with the phone I’d greatly appreciate it. I mean I’ve only been using your app for well over a decade and I’ve never not once complained about the app. It’d just really be great if the phone part of the app actually worked like it’s supposed to. I know a lot of people who use this app would be like me and give the app 5 stars if the phone part was fixed. We ARE happy with every other part of the app!

When I purchased a years service it was under the understanding that I was able to change my number whenever I needed to. And it’s not just me I see other reviews people saying they are able to change their number as aften as they want. I was able to a few times but now I’m not able to change it at all. And now that I really need to I can’t. I’m upset.
Hardly ever works
by 13agp on 2021/02/03 19:35
I’ve had this app for a while, I use it as an extra security for when giving my phone number out to people I do not know. It’s frustrating because it says the message is sent then the person never receives the message. God forbid if I want to send a picture or and emoji. I don’t understand why it has to be this difficult. Please help.

Great app, too many long ads
by paigecash on 2021/01/10 08:01
I love this burner number app because it allows me to change my number for free, whenever I want! You also get to customize your own user profile and message threads, has different ring tones to choose from and lots of other neat personalized details in the settings like a “read message” setting, vibrations and notifications, location and access to camera and contacts list. Have to do the whole captcha thing but it’s not a huge deal, the longggg ads are what’s annoying! There’s too many and they are unnecessarily long. It always works great for me to use as a secondary number for texting certain people. Not sure how the incoming outgoing calling works bc I don’t use it, But overall, it’s a great free app with no sign up fees, hidden fees or commitment to $ subscriptions. It’s exactly what I needed and I really enjoy using it!

gone to gutter
by doctorsoandso on 2020/11/15 11:16
This app used to be somewhat decent. lately they’ve gotten too greedy for their own good, and allowed their product to go to crap. seems like they got new management. this is the 3rd or 4th version of this app. it started out textplus, had two different apps for that, one of which I bought. And then they promptly decided to switch it to nextplus. And later got even more ‘cheap’ and decided to discontinue the phone number I’d had with them for several years, just so they could charge more. ridiculous. The ads are OUT OF CONTROL, and I use the app MUCH MUCH less due to all of the shenanigans from this poorly run business.

I leave a review on May 2019 no one get back to me, still missing so much for example is super slow to low messages I do t care about the apps but this needs to be more fast for calls and Tex Now I’m sending another review hoping you guys are able to do something, I use this number for my business more for texting, most of my clients never get my message when they send a text to me, I reply but they keep asking me do you get my text? I said Yes Also i reply to you the same day but nope they don’t get my message, another thing is I share my PayPal link to get pay and they never receive my Link? I also send photos to confirm my job and not all the photos get to the right person, Please developers do something, this app is not free I do pay yearly fee, From 5 ⭐️ I’m taking 3 off, Thanks

I’m a longtime user and the service and terms have been generally fine. But there are issues. It goes to full screen ads after a use which is absolutely intolerable to me. I added the no ads for a year subscription recently, it worked briefly but then the ads came back after a few days. Two help emails have not changed it. I’m about to complain directly to Apple about the subscription problem. Another longtime complaint is that they block my internet provider email domain so I can’t use my primary email. It’s a standard larger regional internet service in the US. Why?

I have been using this app for several years and I like it, the benefits such as being able to use it in Europe outweigh the few inconveniences such as having to watch advertisements. I have had no problems keeping my number, the major issue that I have is that incoming calls don’t always come through, some other calls come through after the caller has hung up. This doesn’t happen with all calls, most come through ok.
Changing the name doesn’t change The Horrible, Misleading, ignoring all requests for help..
by Miss Connie Love on 2017/11/25 23:25
Do not waste your time with an app that is filled with nothing but ads, more ads and then even more ads you’re forced to watch, then be brought to the App Store after watching as if you want to buy something from their advertisers, just to earn a wee bit of Credit to go towards making calls with this so called “free” calling/texting app. Even that might be tolerable, or maybe it would be worth buying a plan from them if they ever returned emails when you were in need of “support” from them, but don’t expect a response, or even an acknowledgment of any kind if you need to ask them for help with something. They can’t even bother with a “sorry we can’t help you with this” & after a month and a half and 5 or 6 emails even so much and pleading for help, they haven’t even attempted to pretend to give a crap. Like I said, worst app ever. Even more horrible than the app is their “Support”. I’m happy to send proof to anyone who doesn’t believe it. I’ve never been so screwed over by an app, of any category, ever. Waste of energy, and time, and I’ve run out of patience, I don’t care to go out of my way to write bad reviews ever, I’d mostly say nothing at all but these people are pathetic and I must let them, and possible future App users, esp anyone who would buy anything from them. BEWARE.
Great app, too many long ads
by paigecash on 2021/01/10 08:01
I love this burner number app because it allows me to change my number for free, whenever I want! You also get to customize your own user profile and message threads, has different ring tones to choose from and lots of other neat personalized details in the settings like a “read message” setting, vibrations and notifications, location and access to camera and contacts list. Have to do the whole captcha thing but it’s not a huge deal, the longggg ads are what’s annoying! There’s too many and they are unnecessarily long. It always works great for me to use as a secondary number for texting certain people. Not sure how the incoming outgoing calling works bc I don’t use it, But overall, it’s a great free app with no sign up fees, hidden fees or commitment to $ subscriptions. It’s exactly what I needed and I really enjoy using it!
Okay for calls out not in
by darkelementshadow on 2020/08/08 21:12
This app works for placing calls to people that you don’t want to have your number but it says that you can keep the temporary number for 30 days without activity or longer with activity and that is just a pure lie. Every time I open the app my number is gone even if I just used it yesterday for activity and just got the number as well since it lost that last one from the day before. I have had to jump through the stupid captua hoop every day to get a new number to use every day this week. Forget giving it out to anyone to use. Basically it is only a call out one time deal. Earning credits is easy enough watching videos but all the surveys and other offers never work. This app could be much better if it did everything it is supposed to but at least it does half of what it should.
Deleting the app...
by A dissappointedd reviewer on 2021/04/19 23:20
I had two phone numbers but I lost the first one because some type of error happened and because I had not made an account I had bo way of fixing that. So I made an account and got a new number. Had the number for a few days and I’m now signed out AGAIN. I’ve tried to contact customer service for a ticket, nothing. I’ve reset my password like 4 times and now it’s telling something has gone wrong and sending me through the same process again and again. I can’t get back into my account now. Lol, this is like my message to customer service since I didn’t get an answer. I gave this app two starts because, before it logged me out and basically locked both of my numbers to the point where I can no longer use them, the app actually worked and had potential. Moving on to a better one.
Worst support, oh wait there is no support!
by Peeoat on 2020/04/19 18:33
Update April 2020: After many email to there support from the app itself and also from there web site and never got a response or reply, I decided to search Facebook and found they had a page. Sent them a message for help and behold I got a response in a few hours. When a call/is made to me the app still does not ring, but if I open app it should miss call and voice mail or text of any is there. Not sure if that the app or my iPad 4 running OS10. I have sent many emails to there support email address, but never ever get a response. I do get the auto reply that they will response in 24 hours, I wounded 24 hours in what year. I can not say bad things about the service on my iPad as it does work, no problem sending/receiving text. Don't make much call, but the few I receive seems ok. Sorry if you can't get support from a company when you are in need, what the point of having support. Based on my none support help, I give them 2 star. Update years later and still no reply to my problems. Now app will not sign me in after latest update Nov 2019. Going to web site on computer and sending support email, still no replay.
Took away my number. Can’t even recover password
by Stephen8334 on 2018/12/13 01:54
Love this app and had same number for years. I log in just about everyday or every other day. I haven’t received texts in a while so I open up the app and it asks me to log in. My login info is gone. I can’t recover my password either because it says account not found. The recent software update caused the app to log out and I guess my number got taken away. Going with google voice instead. Tired of this nonsense. Couldn’t even buy my number permanently like it mentions after requiring frequent logins because there was no good link to click on to do so. 1 Star. Give me the exact directions and to reclaim my number back to buy the number and I’ll gladly change my review to 5 star, otherwise it stays 1 Star. No way to contact customer service once your account gets deleted. You guys do want money right?
Scam partner offers
by ..::Aly M::.. on 2017/11/07 22:06
The app works pretty well but I am so tired of the time wasted trying to “earn credit” with their scam partners. I’ve done so many quizzes and puzzles and surveys and they are all set up so that even if you get the answers right, you still get no credit. They just want to take your personal information and force you to look at their advertising-and you STILL get zero calling credit! So for texting, as slow as that is, it’s ok. But this app is no replacement for calls. Absolute waste of my time. And I don’t appreciate the obvious scam. Not worth it. Also, the phone number you get is apparently not good enough to even get an email address through gmail or yahoo. Strange, but it definitely doesn’t look like a solid replacement for a regular network plan on my phone.
“Are you tired of meeting creeps online”
by Jeff DeWitte on 2020/05/06 18:48
Update: 4/6/20 now in addition to the annoying ads thrown in your face, whenever you click on a picture that is sent to you in a personal message the app locks and does not respond when you try to reply or go back to your messages. Reduced the stars in my rating from 2 to 1. This stupid ad pops up over and over and over.... They ram this crap down your throat as soon as you back out of a message. I’ve never watched the ad long enough to know what they’re actually selling so I can consciously avoid buying their crap. But the drama-queen-looking, sassy wench in the ad is too annoying to watch more than the second it takes to quickly close the app with angry, spaz-like movements. Doesn’t she look like somebody who's definitely at least tried heroin? Otherwise the app works fine. Will update rating if this is “fixed”
Does not work on newest iPad pro 11inch
by Chungahoo on 2019/02/26 23:52
I used to use this app all the time on my iPad Air 2 as my main phone number. I got a new iPad for Christmas and as soon as all my information and applications transferred over to the new one the app stopped working. I tried reinstalling many times and restarting my iPad. I tried using it over multiple different internet connections. But whenever i pressed the app a black screen showed up for a few seconds and then went back to the home screen. Other than that this app was very useful. There was a problem that the pictures wouldn’t send or get received but that may have been fixed already. Please let me know if this is a problem on your end or on mine.
Useless app, useless support
by Jayy.Tee on 2018/08/25 15:44
I can’t hear voicemails that I receive through the app nor can I hear who’s on the other line. This has been going on for the past year and I’ve brought this issue up before but the issue still persists. I’ve deleted and redownloaded the app, emailed support, submitted the bug through their google+ page but nothing’s been done to fix this problem. I update the app as soon as there’s an update and my iPhone 6s is running the later iOS. Doesn’t matter if it’s on WiFi or LTE, I can’t hear anything. My speakers work just fine because I can make calls through Verizon without a problem. Texting works through the app but that’s about it. With the most recent update, I was actually able to hear my voicemails the day I downloaded the update but today I’m back to not hearing anything.
Works great!
by marjo77 on 2018/02/25 11:38
In my opinion there is nothing bad about this app except that you have to buy or earn credit to call people. I think you should have in limited call time and should should not have to earn or buy it with REAL MONEY. If this gets fits i will write another review and say how that got fixed. Texting: texting is very easy but you don't have the list of your contacts ready to text, you have to type in their phone number or name to be able to text them. But over all the flaws i think this app is a very smoothed runed game
Great but...
by robertgh1 on 2018/11/16 11:58
I have been using this app for almost a year and it works great but there’s an issue. Sometimes recipients don’t receive my text messages although I get notified that it has been sent. How do I know they don’t receive. When I log out and re log in I find out that the text I sent earlier had vanished from my messages thread. That is when I know they did not receive that particular message. Aside that it works great with clear calls and smooth operation on my iPhone 7. Those who cant see text,or hear calls or voicemails shout try and use a VPN and wireless connectivity. These 2 makes the app very effective. Try fix the issue of recipients not receiving text messages sometimes. Aside that it works great.
App needs major improvements.
by iiSDa💩 on 2020/05/16 00:57
Unable to text sometimes. When composing a text, the number you’re trying to text disappears from the box when you try to send. Contacted support about issue but has yet to be fixed. Ads play at the wrong time when your attempting to text. Phone calls/messages sometimes don’t work unless you’re connected to WiFi. Recipient doesn’t receive your call/message. You’re not alerted to incoming phone calls. The app only alerts you when the call is missed. Unable to hear voicemails. The list continues... I get that I’m using the free version but there should be some usability & not so many issues. Makes me glad that I didn’t pay.
Pictures...
by ALBp.e. on 2020/02/29 23:24
I may be doing something incorrectly but my only issue is the inability to send pictures. I’ve tried to cut-copy-paste, take it from photo gallery and screenshot. If I could get a definitive way to send pictures, I would give the app 5 stars. I’ve downloaded textplus and then nextplus because the app directed me to do so and at first I was getting twice the notifications because my number remained with both apps. I seemed to be able to send only one photo a day so I kept both apps to send one photo from each. A week later, though I see the notification for texts, they don’t show up anywhere on either app.
Review !
by iPhone user Tx on 2018/05/19 16:18
Need to have conversation line delete , definitely helps in keeping those lines with important info that can be deleted later . Noticed that app goes off @ times when you touch for access , have to delete app to reset , done it several times recently, running fine @ the moment . Hard to add pics to photo file , have to screen shot to save when I believe that this shouldn’t be the case . Still pleased with the app , just happy not to be texting using phone cell data .
It’s alright
by Alivia Ryann on 2018/07/31 05:05
This app is a little slow. I don’t like have you have to earn credit to call and how I don’t get notifications when someone calls or text till the next day or later. I feel the app needs less adds or non at all and needs to be at a fast pace. My messages take for ever to send sometimes it annoying. Although I do like that you can block numbers and it actually blocks them. This may not be for everyone, but when someone using no caller ID calls me I still can see their number after they call. I use this app because I don’t have data so I needed a way to contact my family or friends. Thanks for reading. Sincerely, a next plus user.
Bad Experience
by kelvin kurrency on 2020/06/28 22:33
The unlimited call is a lie And they always want me to watch some videos to earn credit it’s better I purchase because the videos are not available to watch to get the Credit is just a big circle back to having no credits and wasting my time spinning wheels Some text messages do not deliver to recipients too so much loop on this application at first it was unable to create new account It was more comfortable using google voice So no star for this app from me👎👎👎
Perfect
by Slc201589 on 2017/12/16 15:24
I love this app. I purchased the subscriptions and have no lag issues whatsoever. Everything is so smooth after removing the ads. I use this number for dating apps and for acquaintances. It also prevents the creeps from the dating apps from being able to video chat me. Definitely my favorite feature of it. If video chat was added I would probably be forced to use a different app. Would def recommend to anyone who wanted to have a text/call only number.
It works, but needs improvement.
by Wagmation on 2019/10/10 00:11
PROS: • Gives you a working second phone number. • Interface functions similar to iOS Messages. • Purchased minutes are relatively cheap. CONS: • Call quality ranges from fair to poor. • If you are messaging someone who is using T-Mobile, photos and videos cannot be sent or received. • Notifications make absolutely no sense. Why does one received message count as “7” in the badge icon? Sending someone a message makes the badge icon display a “2” even though it shouldn’t display anything. Total nonsense. • NextPlus doesn’t save unsent texts in the message window like iOS Messages. Expect to have to retype your texts if you wait too long to send them. • Number protection should come automatically when you remove ads for a year. A non-issue if you use this app every day. • All of the issues listed above have persisted for years. This app rarely improves. Makes you wonder what you’re paying for.
First
by AmandaMarks123 on 2018/06/09 13:58
I have had this app for years and have loved it but now it is working like total crap. I use this mainly to text my mom and other family members but the message NEVER go through! And on top of that the "welcome party" is now texting me every day saying that they are going to reclaim my number and if I think this is a mistake to contact "customer support". In fact while I am typing this they sent me this message again. I have tried texting back asking for help or at least how to contact customer support. They refuse to help. I literally left the app for a year and never had this problem but now they are being jerks. I would not get this app again. I recommend getting something else.
Unable to login
by michael161 on 2020/01/31 06:38
I’m unable to login to my nextplus account. Is there any problem with your app because it as been 3 days now I can’t login to my account. The login error message I’m getting is “Hmm..we don’t recognize that info and password. Please try again or you can reset your password “ which I keep resetting my password and link to change my password was sent in my inbox. I keep changing the password and yet I’m unable to login. Please try and rectify the problem with your app and I will be grateful it’s fix for nextplus users to be able to login back again. Thanks
Useless - 8years of being a customer I lose my number with no warning
by DevaStacian on 2018/07/06 19:02
Greedy App! After having the SAME number for eight years, they change the rules. It used to be log in once in a while, then once a month to keep your number. Suddenly, without Warning AND with NO notification they delete the number I've had forever with a new condition that you have to log in once a week. Which, I did. But I STILL lost my number and the whole reason I've used this app for eight or ten years...since it first was invented, anyway. I would gave even been scammed into paying for a way to get my old number back if it was available. They dropped the ball by getting very greedy on this one.
Decent app when it works
by kamasutra69 on 2019/03/07 02:28
I’ve been using next+ for a few years now and it has come in handy when I needed to make a few international phone calls. My reason for the two stars is when I tried calling friends in East Africa especially in Kenya and Uganda, even though I have enough credit it says I don’t have enough. I looked at the rate per minute and lo and behold their rates to those countries are $1,000 per minute. I contacted their customer service a few times to see if that was an error from their part but they never replied. Until you fixed your rates to those countries, I will be using another much friendlier app.
My Number was changed
by Confused 🙆🏽 on 2018/02/16 08:17
After years of haveing the same number it was changed without my acknowledgment. I am very upset. This number I have used for many years when my regular number is not connected. I even used the app 2 weeks ago. I usually get a notification saying I have not used the app in a while and to keep my number I should use it. Now I look around in the settings and find out I have to pay $2 to keep it for a year. That’s nothing I wish I had at least got a notification warning me and say that. I really would like to get my number back if there is anyways possible. This was really unexpected and devastating. I have had the number since textplus.
Messages aren’t delivered
by Angiet69 on 2019/12/21 18:57
I’ve had this app for 2 years. Sometimes it works great, other times it can cause real problems. There have been several occasions that text wasn’t received in the order it had been sent which caused confusion & misunderstandings. The worst is when you get a message from your guy saying “screw it” & then ignores you only to find out he wasn’t receiving ANY of the texts you’d sent. That’s a big issue and one that started again 2 days ago. None of my messages are being delivered, I’ve emailed support 2 or 3 times with no response. Done with it. I tried another app that works. I’m outta here.
App is good; Support is nowhere to be had!
by bkny-1 on 2019/06/30 13:51
I’ve been using textPlus from the beginning. It was great. Typical VOIP/text app. It’s free. Thank you. MY problem is I CanNot get a number in the app. Whatever glitch they are having with the latest version of either Plus apps (both textPlus and NextPlus). Maybe they changed their business model that requires payment.... I don’t even get a clue as to why I can’t get a number. **this is to the developer In Case you are reading this. I got the error after I did the reCapta to get my phone (NewYork) number, simply says : oops their is a problem, please try again.** My biggest gripe is I get no help when I needed them. Emailed support many times: in the app And thru their support page. All I got was a auto reply. Saying that the got my email and pints me to their FAQ! Their FAQ doesn’t solve my problem. If this is a living company, I want to see a living response, not automated. At least a follow up after the automated response.
Unable to open Nextplus on my iPhone 7 Plus
by Azzie1 on 2019/05/04 14:15
It was working wonderful I still 5 days ago, I have sent numerous messages regarding the fact I couldn’t open nextplus app, I constantly received repeated messages and then no response at all!! Apple walked me through several steps to the point that I was told that I needed to contact nextplus!! At this point I have deleted and reinstalled and sad to say the nextplus app still will not open!!! Azzie
App is a nice convenience
by Jftman1953 on 2020/04/21 22:56
Was recently off line so I secured a second wifi number from a second app provider. Going into the down time, I was not able to send links. Pics yes, links no. In fact if I sent text and included with a link, neither arrived. Seems to have been fixed now though. I am overAll happy and I paid to retain my phone number. Very reasonable pricing across the board. A good working app and without the hassles, I believe the developers are doing a good job. ThankYou
Was 5 star now 4 will be 3 if I cannot change my number
by jstylz_by_jraw on 2021/02/04 23:14
When I purchased a years service it was under the understanding that I was able to change my number whenever I needed to. And it’s not just me I see other reviews people saying they are able to change their number as aften as they want. I was able to a few times but now I’m not able to change it at all. And now that I really need to I can’t. I’m upset.
Leaves A LOT to be desired
by Branndhy on 2019/01/08 13:54
As far as regular messaging goes - the app does what it’s supposed to for the most part. Pictures take a couple tries to send. Videos usually do not send. (Even with a full signal WiFi). Voicemail and calling features are a joke. All calls come in as unknown unless they are in my contact list even though I can look at my phones actual call log after the fact and it will show the number. Voicemails are non existent after someone leaves one. Just silence when it plays. Not sure of how to fix the issue as it is not a WiFi connection issue.
Location issues
by officialsir_h on 2019/08/21 13:06
Ok I have been making use of this app for about 4 years now. what I will say it that the app is great and useful. But at some point I noticed that I don’t turn on ip on my phone I can’t send or receive messages. and that is really annoying actually. and sometimes I experience slow working service. but other than that the app is a great one. and I hope you guys have that fixed so for now I’m going to give you guys 3 and half stars ⭐️ and if I see any improvement you will get my 5 star ⭐️
Getting worse. Don’t bother
by Jolly Rogers 77 on 2018/11/12 04:43
The app started out pretty useful, then they got greedy. The phone number used to be good for a month provided I use it during the month. Then it all changed a must use within a week or loose it. Then they removed the contacts last time they were online. Now I can’t try and coordinate my texts with the contacts. WhatsApp has been a better resource.
Crashes.
by Shotcaller_133 on 2018/05/16 19:32
After latest update app randomly crashes and doesn’t open again so I have to delete and download the whole app again. Also receiving videos doesn’t work it sends you to the page that loads it and never loads just a blank video. Pictures aren’t able to be opened after the first time you receive them. App freezes your whole phone sometimes and you have to end the call to fix it. Messages don’t show up in order you receive them sometimes getting them 10+ minutes later out of order.
gone to gutter
by doctorsoandso on 2020/11/15 11:16
This app used to be somewhat decent. lately they’ve gotten too greedy for their own good, and allowed their product to go to crap. seems like they got new management. this is the 3rd or 4th version of this app. it started out textplus, had two different apps for that, one of which I bought. And then they promptly decided to switch it to nextplus. And later got even more ‘cheap’ and decided to discontinue the phone number I’d had with them for several years, just so they could charge more. ridiculous. The ads are OUT OF CONTROL, and I use the app MUCH MUCH less due to all of the shenanigans from this poorly run business.
Good app if changing #’s often
by Rikki Wysardi on 2019/01/10 22:18
I only use it texting...don’t mind the small ads at bottom of the screen...if I start getting too many phone calls or video chat calls through hangouts I can just change the number...no sneaky terms of use to bind you to something you might end up regretting you agreed to...Good app if your looking for a free texting number you can change easily.
5yr user will continue to use always works
by RAWRcarrie on 2018/11/02 00:49
I’ve been using this app for about 5 years kinda sad to see such horrible ratings has always worked never been locked out of account or charged wrongly do not mind earning credits with ads I have only made a single in app purchase and it was like 2yrs a go. Great app always functional and has improved ALOT since I first discovered it as textplus
No notification of number change
by ~HeLiX_iS_BeTa~ on 2018/04/20 18:23
Previously, if you did not use your number within a month, you'd receive notification of your number potentially being recycled for not using it, it's been 19 days and my number was changed with no notification. Now, I have to use in once within a weeks time versus what used to be a months time. I do not enjoy this change and feel it will lead to stress and disarray from the mass amounts of numbers being changed in a week and be more of an inconvenience than an upgrade to users on this app.
I can’t open my nextplus app
by Kojogabs on 2019/05/04 13:05
I really like your app but it’s been giving me problems for some days now. I can’t send messages so I deleted the app to download it again and see if it will work. I did download it again and now when I open the app it closes by itself without even giving me the option to log in. Please assist me with. Can you kindly help me get my app working again.
Perfect for Verifying ❤️!!
by Shaheem💕 on 2020/12/11 08:42
I was trying to find an app where I could not only send messages and receive them from anywhere but get actual verification codes aswell that wouldn’t work on my regular phone or voicemails! I love this app so much you guys have no freaking Idea !! Thank you so much half of what I’m able to do I couldn’t do it without this app! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
To bad, this need to be fixed
by joseescobar24 on 2020/11/12 17:15
I leave a review on May 2019 no one get back to me, still missing so much for example is super slow to low messages I do t care about the apps but this needs to be more fast for calls and Tex Now I’m sending another review hoping you guys are able to do something, I use this number for my business more for texting, most of my clients never get my message when they send a text to me, I reply but they keep asking me do you get my text? I said Yes Also i reply to you the same day but nope they don’t get my message, another thing is I share my PayPal link to get pay and they never receive my Link? I also send photos to confirm my job and not all the photos get to the right person, Please developers do something, this app is not free I do pay yearly fee, From 5 ⭐️ I’m taking 3 off, Thanks
Worst I don’t see how you are in charge or an app like this
by Charleb319 on 2018/04/18 16:39
Here I go again writing another view because you tell me to do something and yet you haven’t respond, but just with a default reply to email gosupport, that email address didn’t even send a legit response. I wish you “developer” would take action, cause for the people that sent money for credits to call. It seems like your still there credit. You can either refund me back that money or you can correct the error with my account. But this seems to be the only way to reach you since you just send a default email and never reply.
Good and bad
by Mike467372 on 2020/10/30 18:07
I’m a longtime user and the service and terms have been generally fine. But there are issues. It goes to full screen ads after a use which is absolutely intolerable to me. I added the no ads for a year subscription recently, it worked briefly but then the ads came back after a few days. Two help emails have not changed it. I’m about to complain directly to Apple about the subscription problem. Another longtime complaint is that they block my internet provider email domain so I can’t use my primary email. It’s a standard larger regional internet service in the US. Why?
Horrible phone service
by Hoffius on 2018/09/18 18:11
When you want to make a call it’s 50/50 if it will get dropped no matter if you have 3G full bars, 4G full bars or the absolute best WiFi imaginable. And when someone calls you, you will hit answer and the call will be dropped almost instantly when you put it up to your ear. I’ve put money into this app and it still doesn’t matter smh you would think making a phone call would be pretty easy in this day and age but not with this app. Almost lost out on a job because of its inconsistency.
Overall
by 2?/451 on 2018/06/05 23:36
Overall the app works as advertised... ish. Now it has become a “let’s see how many ways we can dig into your pockets” app. My biggest issue is that they will “reclaim” your phone number if you haven’t used it in a short while. Unless of course, you buy your number for a year. I’d rather they cut out the ability to get “free” credits by watching the advertisements and just make us pay for the minutes. Let’s be honest, most people are using this app as a ghost number for people they don’t want to know their real number.
Texts not as secure as you think
by MWD Business on 2019/04/07 13:29
I had been with the airport few years, and had my number taken in December even with more than $10 in credit. After failing to get a response from customer service about what happened, I decided to go with a new number. Since taking my number, I’ve noticed that I’ve been receiving other peoples random text messages. And these texts are very explicit. I try to inform next class about it, but customer support has not responded. Be careful of your attacks because others are receiving your communication. And I do have proof as evidence.
App works but no response from support
by daveyd128 on 2019/09/26 02:55
Edit 2: this application is pure trash. Can’t send an image to anyone. Can’t sent a hyperlink to anyone. You don’t know if a text goes though or not. Support does not respond to any emails. Trash all around. I have emailed 6 times regarding issues with the app, with no response. So I’m writing this review. There is a known issue with sending hyperlinks in texts and sending pictures to t-mobile customers. Hopefully the developer will see this review with the issues listed above. Once these issues are resolved I will change my review score.
Annoying
by Robbbbbbie101 on 2017/12/08 15:24
Annoying since they made people change numbers from what we started with. Now I get 3 calls in the morning and 3 calls in the evening all back to back first call from a number second 2 calls unknown. I have never had that issue with my old number. I am about my wits end and will be looking for a new app. There is no way to stop the junk calls and tech support does not care. I have contacted several times and yet have gotten a answer. I highly do not recommend this app at all until something is done. FIX THIS OR LOOSE CUSTOMERS!!!!!!

Deleting the app...
by A dissappointedd reviewer on 2021/04/19 23:20
I had two phone numbers but I lost the first one because some type of error happened and because I had not made an account I had bo way of fixing that. So I made an account and got a new number. Had the number for a few days and I’m now signed out AGAIN. I’ve tried to contact customer service for a ticket, nothing. I’ve reset my password like 4 times and now it’s telling something has gone wrong and sending me through the same process again and again. I can’t get back into my account now. Lol, this is like my message to customer service since I didn’t get an answer. I gave this app two starts because, before it logged me out and basically locked both of my numbers to the point where I can no longer use them, the app actually worked and had potential. Moving on to a better one.
I would have rated it zero stars

Too many ads!!!
by Tj88keys on 2021/04/10 17:28
It’s out of control. When I used this app a few years ago there was an occasional banner ad, but to have to wait through a video ad after each message is too much. Will be looking for an alternative.

Scam
by Michaelohagen on 2021/03/24 16:13
This service is a scam, it stopped working and constantly giving error codes about 4 yrs ago, I decided to try it again because it really is the best price for a virtual phone number and sure enough still the same continual issues... Constant http 503 error codes meaning their services are unable to make calls.
Cannot Earn Credits
by macusers608 on 2021/03/22 19:31
Just got a new number. I can’t earn any credits because videos are never available and when I finally get a video after days of trying, I don’t get credit for watching it! I can’t use the number for my bank or other business because it doesn’t support short code SMS. Completely useless.

by Sassychicgirl9 on 2021/03/17 20:15
This app gets stuck sometimes on advertisements and takes a long time to receive a text depending on the time of day. If alot of users, then it takes longer to get the text. Other than that, it works fine receiving images, texts, and emoji.

Would like to give 5 stars but•••:
by Mychele_Belle on 2021/03/04 04:26
I’ve been using this app for well over a year now and I’ve always had this same problem from day 1, I can make calls fine, but answering a call has always been a no go. When I make a call everything works great. When someone tries to call me there’s a choice of issues and at least one happens. I won’t hear the call coming through. I don’t hear the call until the 3rd ring or later. When I DO hear the ring and try to answer the call, the call has already ended. If I am lucky enough to catch the call and answer it the person calling me NEVER hears me. A while back I would of felt rather petty to complain about anything because it was a free app and everything else worked great. However, now I’m contributing money to the app and still having the issue with the apps phone. If you could fix the faults with the phone I’d greatly appreciate it. I mean I’ve only been using your app for well over a decade and I’ve never not once complained about the app. It’d just really be great if the phone part of the app actually worked like it’s supposed to. I know a lot of people who use this app would be like me and give the app 5 stars if the phone part was fixed. We ARE happy with every other part of the app!

When I purchased a years service it was under the understanding that I was able to change my number whenever I needed to. And it’s not just me I see other reviews people saying they are able to change their number as aften as they want. I was able to a few times but now I’m not able to change it at all. And now that I really need to I can’t. I’m upset.
Hardly ever works
by 13agp on 2021/02/03 19:35
I’ve had this app for a while, I use it as an extra security for when giving my phone number out to people I do not know. It’s frustrating because it says the message is sent then the person never receives the message. God forbid if I want to send a picture or and emoji. I don’t understand why it has to be this difficult. Please help.

Great app, too many long ads
by paigecash on 2021/01/10 08:01
I love this burner number app because it allows me to change my number for free, whenever I want! You also get to customize your own user profile and message threads, has different ring tones to choose from and lots of other neat personalized details in the settings like a “read message” setting, vibrations and notifications, location and access to camera and contacts list. Have to do the whole captcha thing but it’s not a huge deal, the longggg ads are what’s annoying! There’s too many and they are unnecessarily long. It always works great for me to use as a secondary number for texting certain people. Not sure how the incoming outgoing calling works bc I don’t use it, But overall, it’s a great free app with no sign up fees, hidden fees or commitment to $ subscriptions. It’s exactly what I needed and I really enjoy using it!

gone to gutter
by doctorsoandso on 2020/11/15 11:16
This app used to be somewhat decent. lately they’ve gotten too greedy for their own good, and allowed their product to go to crap. seems like they got new management. this is the 3rd or 4th version of this app. it started out textplus, had two different apps for that, one of which I bought. And then they promptly decided to switch it to nextplus. And later got even more ‘cheap’ and decided to discontinue the phone number I’d had with them for several years, just so they could charge more. ridiculous. The ads are OUT OF CONTROL, and I use the app MUCH MUCH less due to all of the shenanigans from this poorly run business.

I leave a review on May 2019 no one get back to me, still missing so much for example is super slow to low messages I do t care about the apps but this needs to be more fast for calls and Tex Now I’m sending another review hoping you guys are able to do something, I use this number for my business more for texting, most of my clients never get my message when they send a text to me, I reply but they keep asking me do you get my text? I said Yes Also i reply to you the same day but nope they don’t get my message, another thing is I share my PayPal link to get pay and they never receive my Link? I also send photos to confirm my job and not all the photos get to the right person, Please developers do something, this app is not free I do pay yearly fee, From 5 ⭐️ I’m taking 3 off, Thanks

I’m a longtime user and the service and terms have been generally fine. But there are issues. It goes to full screen ads after a use which is absolutely intolerable to me. I added the no ads for a year subscription recently, it worked briefly but then the ads came back after a few days. Two help emails have not changed it. I’m about to complain directly to Apple about the subscription problem. Another longtime complaint is that they block my internet provider email domain so I can’t use my primary email. It’s a standard larger regional internet service in the US. Why?

I have been using this app for several years and I like it, the benefits such as being able to use it in Europe outweigh the few inconveniences such as having to watch advertisements. I have had no problems keeping my number, the major issue that I have is that incoming calls don’t always come through, some other calls come through after the caller has hung up. This doesn’t happen with all calls, most come through ok.
Changing the name doesn’t change The Horrible, Misleading, ignoring all requests for help..
by Miss Connie Love on 2017/11/25 23:25
Do not waste your time with an app that is filled with nothing but ads, more ads and then even more ads you’re forced to watch, then be brought to the App Store after watching as if you want to buy something from their advertisers, just to earn a wee bit of Credit to go towards making calls with this so called “free” calling/texting app. Even that might be tolerable, or maybe it would be worth buying a plan from them if they ever returned emails when you were in need of “support” from them, but don’t expect a response, or even an acknowledgment of any kind if you need to ask them for help with something. They can’t even bother with a “sorry we can’t help you with this” & after a month and a half and 5 or 6 emails even so much and pleading for help, they haven’t even attempted to pretend to give a crap. Like I said, worst app ever. Even more horrible than the app is their “Support”. I’m happy to send proof to anyone who doesn’t believe it. I’ve never been so screwed over by an app, of any category, ever. Waste of energy, and time, and I’ve run out of patience, I don’t care to go out of my way to write bad reviews ever, I’d mostly say nothing at all but these people are pathetic and I must let them, and possible future App users, esp anyone who would buy anything from them. BEWARE.
Great app, too many long ads
by paigecash on 2021/01/10 08:01
I love this burner number app because it allows me to change my number for free, whenever I want! You also get to customize your own user profile and message threads, has different ring tones to choose from and lots of other neat personalized details in the settings like a “read message” setting, vibrations and notifications, location and access to camera and contacts list. Have to do the whole captcha thing but it’s not a huge deal, the longggg ads are what’s annoying! There’s too many and they are unnecessarily long. It always works great for me to use as a secondary number for texting certain people. Not sure how the incoming outgoing calling works bc I don’t use it, But overall, it’s a great free app with no sign up fees, hidden fees or commitment to $ subscriptions. It’s exactly what I needed and I really enjoy using it!
Okay for calls out not in
by darkelementshadow on 2020/08/08 21:12
This app works for placing calls to people that you don’t want to have your number but it says that you can keep the temporary number for 30 days without activity or longer with activity and that is just a pure lie. Every time I open the app my number is gone even if I just used it yesterday for activity and just got the number as well since it lost that last one from the day before. I have had to jump through the stupid captua hoop every day to get a new number to use every day this week. Forget giving it out to anyone to use. Basically it is only a call out one time deal. Earning credits is easy enough watching videos but all the surveys and other offers never work. This app could be much better if it did everything it is supposed to but at least it does half of what it should.
Deleting the app...
by A dissappointedd reviewer on 2021/04/19 23:20
I had two phone numbers but I lost the first one because some type of error happened and because I had not made an account I had bo way of fixing that. So I made an account and got a new number. Had the number for a few days and I’m now signed out AGAIN. I’ve tried to contact customer service for a ticket, nothing. I’ve reset my password like 4 times and now it’s telling something has gone wrong and sending me through the same process again and again. I can’t get back into my account now. Lol, this is like my message to customer service since I didn’t get an answer. I gave this app two starts because, before it logged me out and basically locked both of my numbers to the point where I can no longer use them, the app actually worked and had potential. Moving on to a better one.
Worst support, oh wait there is no support!
by Peeoat on 2020/04/19 18:33
Update April 2020: After many email to there support from the app itself and also from there web site and never got a response or reply, I decided to search Facebook and found they had a page. Sent them a message for help and behold I got a response in a few hours. When a call/is made to me the app still does not ring, but if I open app it should miss call and voice mail or text of any is there. Not sure if that the app or my iPad 4 running OS10. I have sent many emails to there support email address, but never ever get a response. I do get the auto reply that they will response in 24 hours, I wounded 24 hours in what year. I can not say bad things about the service on my iPad as it does work, no problem sending/receiving text. Don't make much call, but the few I receive seems ok. Sorry if you can't get support from a company when you are in need, what the point of having support. Based on my none support help, I give them 2 star. Update years later and still no reply to my problems. Now app will not sign me in after latest update Nov 2019. Going to web site on computer and sending support email, still no replay.
Took away my number. Can’t even recover password
by Stephen8334 on 2018/12/13 01:54
Love this app and had same number for years. I log in just about everyday or every other day. I haven’t received texts in a while so I open up the app and it asks me to log in. My login info is gone. I can’t recover my password either because it says account not found. The recent software update caused the app to log out and I guess my number got taken away. Going with google voice instead. Tired of this nonsense. Couldn’t even buy my number permanently like it mentions after requiring frequent logins because there was no good link to click on to do so. 1 Star. Give me the exact directions and to reclaim my number back to buy the number and I’ll gladly change my review to 5 star, otherwise it stays 1 Star. No way to contact customer service once your account gets deleted. You guys do want money right?
Scam partner offers
by ..::Aly M::.. on 2017/11/07 22:06
The app works pretty well but I am so tired of the time wasted trying to “earn credit” with their scam partners. I’ve done so many quizzes and puzzles and surveys and they are all set up so that even if you get the answers right, you still get no credit. They just want to take your personal information and force you to look at their advertising-and you STILL get zero calling credit! So for texting, as slow as that is, it’s ok. But this app is no replacement for calls. Absolute waste of my time. And I don’t appreciate the obvious scam. Not worth it. Also, the phone number you get is apparently not good enough to even get an email address through gmail or yahoo. Strange, but it definitely doesn’t look like a solid replacement for a regular network plan on my phone.
“Are you tired of meeting creeps online”
by Jeff DeWitte on 2020/05/06 18:48
Update: 4/6/20 now in addition to the annoying ads thrown in your face, whenever you click on a picture that is sent to you in a personal message the app locks and does not respond when you try to reply or go back to your messages. Reduced the stars in my rating from 2 to 1. This stupid ad pops up over and over and over.... They ram this crap down your throat as soon as you back out of a message. I’ve never watched the ad long enough to know what they’re actually selling so I can consciously avoid buying their crap. But the drama-queen-looking, sassy wench in the ad is too annoying to watch more than the second it takes to quickly close the app with angry, spaz-like movements. Doesn’t she look like somebody who's definitely at least tried heroin? Otherwise the app works fine. Will update rating if this is “fixed”
Does not work on newest iPad pro 11inch
by Chungahoo on 2019/02/26 23:52
I used to use this app all the time on my iPad Air 2 as my main phone number. I got a new iPad for Christmas and as soon as all my information and applications transferred over to the new one the app stopped working. I tried reinstalling many times and restarting my iPad. I tried using it over multiple different internet connections. But whenever i pressed the app a black screen showed up for a few seconds and then went back to the home screen. Other than that this app was very useful. There was a problem that the pictures wouldn’t send or get received but that may have been fixed already. Please let me know if this is a problem on your end or on mine.
Useless app, useless support
by Jayy.Tee on 2018/08/25 15:44
I can’t hear voicemails that I receive through the app nor can I hear who’s on the other line. This has been going on for the past year and I’ve brought this issue up before but the issue still persists. I’ve deleted and redownloaded the app, emailed support, submitted the bug through their google+ page but nothing’s been done to fix this problem. I update the app as soon as there’s an update and my iPhone 6s is running the later iOS. Doesn’t matter if it’s on WiFi or LTE, I can’t hear anything. My speakers work just fine because I can make calls through Verizon without a problem. Texting works through the app but that’s about it. With the most recent update, I was actually able to hear my voicemails the day I downloaded the update but today I’m back to not hearing anything.
Works great!
by marjo77 on 2018/02/25 11:38
In my opinion there is nothing bad about this app except that you have to buy or earn credit to call people. I think you should have in limited call time and should should not have to earn or buy it with REAL MONEY. If this gets fits i will write another review and say how that got fixed. Texting: texting is very easy but you don't have the list of your contacts ready to text, you have to type in their phone number or name to be able to text them. But over all the flaws i think this app is a very smoothed runed game
Great but...
by robertgh1 on 2018/11/16 11:58
I have been using this app for almost a year and it works great but there’s an issue. Sometimes recipients don’t receive my text messages although I get notified that it has been sent. How do I know they don’t receive. When I log out and re log in I find out that the text I sent earlier had vanished from my messages thread. That is when I know they did not receive that particular message. Aside that it works great with clear calls and smooth operation on my iPhone 7. Those who cant see text,or hear calls or voicemails shout try and use a VPN and wireless connectivity. These 2 makes the app very effective. Try fix the issue of recipients not receiving text messages sometimes. Aside that it works great.
App needs major improvements.
by iiSDa💩 on 2020/05/16 00:57
Unable to text sometimes. When composing a text, the number you’re trying to text disappears from the box when you try to send. Contacted support about issue but has yet to be fixed. Ads play at the wrong time when your attempting to text. Phone calls/messages sometimes don’t work unless you’re connected to WiFi. Recipient doesn’t receive your call/message. You’re not alerted to incoming phone calls. The app only alerts you when the call is missed. Unable to hear voicemails. The list continues... I get that I’m using the free version but there should be some usability & not so many issues. Makes me glad that I didn’t pay.
Pictures...
by ALBp.e. on 2020/02/29 23:24
I may be doing something incorrectly but my only issue is the inability to send pictures. I’ve tried to cut-copy-paste, take it from photo gallery and screenshot. If I could get a definitive way to send pictures, I would give the app 5 stars. I’ve downloaded textplus and then nextplus because the app directed me to do so and at first I was getting twice the notifications because my number remained with both apps. I seemed to be able to send only one photo a day so I kept both apps to send one photo from each. A week later, though I see the notification for texts, they don’t show up anywhere on either app.
Review !
by iPhone user Tx on 2018/05/19 16:18
Need to have conversation line delete , definitely helps in keeping those lines with important info that can be deleted later . Noticed that app goes off @ times when you touch for access , have to delete app to reset , done it several times recently, running fine @ the moment . Hard to add pics to photo file , have to screen shot to save when I believe that this shouldn’t be the case . Still pleased with the app , just happy not to be texting using phone cell data .
It’s alright
by Alivia Ryann on 2018/07/31 05:05
This app is a little slow. I don’t like have you have to earn credit to call and how I don’t get notifications when someone calls or text till the next day or later. I feel the app needs less adds or non at all and needs to be at a fast pace. My messages take for ever to send sometimes it annoying. Although I do like that you can block numbers and it actually blocks them. This may not be for everyone, but when someone using no caller ID calls me I still can see their number after they call. I use this app because I don’t have data so I needed a way to contact my family or friends. Thanks for reading. Sincerely, a next plus user.
Bad Experience
by kelvin kurrency on 2020/06/28 22:33
The unlimited call is a lie And they always want me to watch some videos to earn credit it’s better I purchase because the videos are not available to watch to get the Credit is just a big circle back to having no credits and wasting my time spinning wheels Some text messages do not deliver to recipients too so much loop on this application at first it was unable to create new account It was more comfortable using google voice So no star for this app from me👎👎👎
Perfect
by Slc201589 on 2017/12/16 15:24
I love this app. I purchased the subscriptions and have no lag issues whatsoever. Everything is so smooth after removing the ads. I use this number for dating apps and for acquaintances. It also prevents the creeps from the dating apps from being able to video chat me. Definitely my favorite feature of it. If video chat was added I would probably be forced to use a different app. Would def recommend to anyone who wanted to have a text/call only number.
It works, but needs improvement.
by Wagmation on 2019/10/10 00:11
PROS: • Gives you a working second phone number. • Interface functions similar to iOS Messages. • Purchased minutes are relatively cheap. CONS: • Call quality ranges from fair to poor. • If you are messaging someone who is using T-Mobile, photos and videos cannot be sent or received. • Notifications make absolutely no sense. Why does one received message count as “7” in the badge icon? Sending someone a message makes the badge icon display a “2” even though it shouldn’t display anything. Total nonsense. • NextPlus doesn’t save unsent texts in the message window like iOS Messages. Expect to have to retype your texts if you wait too long to send them. • Number protection should come automatically when you remove ads for a year. A non-issue if you use this app every day. • All of the issues listed above have persisted for years. This app rarely improves. Makes you wonder what you’re paying for.
First
by AmandaMarks123 on 2018/06/09 13:58
I have had this app for years and have loved it but now it is working like total crap. I use this mainly to text my mom and other family members but the message NEVER go through! And on top of that the "welcome party" is now texting me every day saying that they are going to reclaim my number and if I think this is a mistake to contact "customer support". In fact while I am typing this they sent me this message again. I have tried texting back asking for help or at least how to contact customer support. They refuse to help. I literally left the app for a year and never had this problem but now they are being jerks. I would not get this app again. I recommend getting something else.
Unable to login
by michael161 on 2020/01/31 06:38
I’m unable to login to my nextplus account. Is there any problem with your app because it as been 3 days now I can’t login to my account. The login error message I’m getting is “Hmm..we don’t recognize that info and password. Please try again or you can reset your password “ which I keep resetting my password and link to change my password was sent in my inbox. I keep changing the password and yet I’m unable to login. Please try and rectify the problem with your app and I will be grateful it’s fix for nextplus users to be able to login back again. Thanks
Useless - 8years of being a customer I lose my number with no warning
by DevaStacian on 2018/07/06 19:02
Greedy App! After having the SAME number for eight years, they change the rules. It used to be log in once in a while, then once a month to keep your number. Suddenly, without Warning AND with NO notification they delete the number I've had forever with a new condition that you have to log in once a week. Which, I did. But I STILL lost my number and the whole reason I've used this app for eight or ten years...since it first was invented, anyway. I would gave even been scammed into paying for a way to get my old number back if it was available. They dropped the ball by getting very greedy on this one.
Decent app when it works
by kamasutra69 on 2019/03/07 02:28
I’ve been using next+ for a few years now and it has come in handy when I needed to make a few international phone calls. My reason for the two stars is when I tried calling friends in East Africa especially in Kenya and Uganda, even though I have enough credit it says I don’t have enough. I looked at the rate per minute and lo and behold their rates to those countries are $1,000 per minute. I contacted their customer service a few times to see if that was an error from their part but they never replied. Until you fixed your rates to those countries, I will be using another much friendlier app.
My Number was changed
by Confused 🙆🏽 on 2018/02/16 08:17
After years of haveing the same number it was changed without my acknowledgment. I am very upset. This number I have used for many years when my regular number is not connected. I even used the app 2 weeks ago. I usually get a notification saying I have not used the app in a while and to keep my number I should use it. Now I look around in the settings and find out I have to pay $2 to keep it for a year. That’s nothing I wish I had at least got a notification warning me and say that. I really would like to get my number back if there is anyways possible. This was really unexpected and devastating. I have had the number since textplus.
Messages aren’t delivered
by Angiet69 on 2019/12/21 18:57
I’ve had this app for 2 years. Sometimes it works great, other times it can cause real problems. There have been several occasions that text wasn’t received in the order it had been sent which caused confusion & misunderstandings. The worst is when you get a message from your guy saying “screw it” & then ignores you only to find out he wasn’t receiving ANY of the texts you’d sent. That’s a big issue and one that started again 2 days ago. None of my messages are being delivered, I’ve emailed support 2 or 3 times with no response. Done with it. I tried another app that works. I’m outta here.
App is good; Support is nowhere to be had!
by bkny-1 on 2019/06/30 13:51
I’ve been using textPlus from the beginning. It was great. Typical VOIP/text app. It’s free. Thank you. MY problem is I CanNot get a number in the app. Whatever glitch they are having with the latest version of either Plus apps (both textPlus and NextPlus). Maybe they changed their business model that requires payment.... I don’t even get a clue as to why I can’t get a number. **this is to the developer In Case you are reading this. I got the error after I did the reCapta to get my phone (NewYork) number, simply says : oops their is a problem, please try again.** My biggest gripe is I get no help when I needed them. Emailed support many times: in the app And thru their support page. All I got was a auto reply. Saying that the got my email and pints me to their FAQ! Their FAQ doesn’t solve my problem. If this is a living company, I want to see a living response, not automated. At least a follow up after the automated response.
Unable to open Nextplus on my iPhone 7 Plus
by Azzie1 on 2019/05/04 14:15
It was working wonderful I still 5 days ago, I have sent numerous messages regarding the fact I couldn’t open nextplus app, I constantly received repeated messages and then no response at all!! Apple walked me through several steps to the point that I was told that I needed to contact nextplus!! At this point I have deleted and reinstalled and sad to say the nextplus app still will not open!!! Azzie
App is a nice convenience
by Jftman1953 on 2020/04/21 22:56
Was recently off line so I secured a second wifi number from a second app provider. Going into the down time, I was not able to send links. Pics yes, links no. In fact if I sent text and included with a link, neither arrived. Seems to have been fixed now though. I am overAll happy and I paid to retain my phone number. Very reasonable pricing across the board. A good working app and without the hassles, I believe the developers are doing a good job. ThankYou
Was 5 star now 4 will be 3 if I cannot change my number
by jstylz_by_jraw on 2021/02/04 23:14
When I purchased a years service it was under the understanding that I was able to change my number whenever I needed to. And it’s not just me I see other reviews people saying they are able to change their number as aften as they want. I was able to a few times but now I’m not able to change it at all. And now that I really need to I can’t. I’m upset.
Leaves A LOT to be desired
by Branndhy on 2019/01/08 13:54
As far as regular messaging goes - the app does what it’s supposed to for the most part. Pictures take a couple tries to send. Videos usually do not send. (Even with a full signal WiFi). Voicemail and calling features are a joke. All calls come in as unknown unless they are in my contact list even though I can look at my phones actual call log after the fact and it will show the number. Voicemails are non existent after someone leaves one. Just silence when it plays. Not sure of how to fix the issue as it is not a WiFi connection issue.
Location issues
by officialsir_h on 2019/08/21 13:06
Ok I have been making use of this app for about 4 years now. what I will say it that the app is great and useful. But at some point I noticed that I don’t turn on ip on my phone I can’t send or receive messages. and that is really annoying actually. and sometimes I experience slow working service. but other than that the app is a great one. and I hope you guys have that fixed so for now I’m going to give you guys 3 and half stars ⭐️ and if I see any improvement you will get my 5 star ⭐️
Getting worse. Don’t bother
by Jolly Rogers 77 on 2018/11/12 04:43
The app started out pretty useful, then they got greedy. The phone number used to be good for a month provided I use it during the month. Then it all changed a must use within a week or loose it. Then they removed the contacts last time they were online. Now I can’t try and coordinate my texts with the contacts. WhatsApp has been a better resource.
Crashes.
by Shotcaller_133 on 2018/05/16 19:32
After latest update app randomly crashes and doesn’t open again so I have to delete and download the whole app again. Also receiving videos doesn’t work it sends you to the page that loads it and never loads just a blank video. Pictures aren’t able to be opened after the first time you receive them. App freezes your whole phone sometimes and you have to end the call to fix it. Messages don’t show up in order you receive them sometimes getting them 10+ minutes later out of order.
gone to gutter
by doctorsoandso on 2020/11/15 11:16
This app used to be somewhat decent. lately they’ve gotten too greedy for their own good, and allowed their product to go to crap. seems like they got new management. this is the 3rd or 4th version of this app. it started out textplus, had two different apps for that, one of which I bought. And then they promptly decided to switch it to nextplus. And later got even more ‘cheap’ and decided to discontinue the phone number I’d had with them for several years, just so they could charge more. ridiculous. The ads are OUT OF CONTROL, and I use the app MUCH MUCH less due to all of the shenanigans from this poorly run business.
Good app if changing #’s often
by Rikki Wysardi on 2019/01/10 22:18
I only use it texting...don’t mind the small ads at bottom of the screen...if I start getting too many phone calls or video chat calls through hangouts I can just change the number...no sneaky terms of use to bind you to something you might end up regretting you agreed to...Good app if your looking for a free texting number you can change easily.
5yr user will continue to use always works
by RAWRcarrie on 2018/11/02 00:49
I’ve been using this app for about 5 years kinda sad to see such horrible ratings has always worked never been locked out of account or charged wrongly do not mind earning credits with ads I have only made a single in app purchase and it was like 2yrs a go. Great app always functional and has improved ALOT since I first discovered it as textplus
No notification of number change
by ~HeLiX_iS_BeTa~ on 2018/04/20 18:23
Previously, if you did not use your number within a month, you'd receive notification of your number potentially being recycled for not using it, it's been 19 days and my number was changed with no notification. Now, I have to use in once within a weeks time versus what used to be a months time. I do not enjoy this change and feel it will lead to stress and disarray from the mass amounts of numbers being changed in a week and be more of an inconvenience than an upgrade to users on this app.
I can’t open my nextplus app
by Kojogabs on 2019/05/04 13:05
I really like your app but it’s been giving me problems for some days now. I can’t send messages so I deleted the app to download it again and see if it will work. I did download it again and now when I open the app it closes by itself without even giving me the option to log in. Please assist me with. Can you kindly help me get my app working again.
Perfect for Verifying ❤️!!
by Shaheem💕 on 2020/12/11 08:42
I was trying to find an app where I could not only send messages and receive them from anywhere but get actual verification codes aswell that wouldn’t work on my regular phone or voicemails! I love this app so much you guys have no freaking Idea !! Thank you so much half of what I’m able to do I couldn’t do it without this app! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
To bad, this need to be fixed
by joseescobar24 on 2020/11/12 17:15
I leave a review on May 2019 no one get back to me, still missing so much for example is super slow to low messages I do t care about the apps but this needs to be more fast for calls and Tex Now I’m sending another review hoping you guys are able to do something, I use this number for my business more for texting, most of my clients never get my message when they send a text to me, I reply but they keep asking me do you get my text? I said Yes Also i reply to you the same day but nope they don’t get my message, another thing is I share my PayPal link to get pay and they never receive my Link? I also send photos to confirm my job and not all the photos get to the right person, Please developers do something, this app is not free I do pay yearly fee, From 5 ⭐️ I’m taking 3 off, Thanks
Worst I don’t see how you are in charge or an app like this
by Charleb319 on 2018/04/18 16:39
Here I go again writing another view because you tell me to do something and yet you haven’t respond, but just with a default reply to email gosupport, that email address didn’t even send a legit response. I wish you “developer” would take action, cause for the people that sent money for credits to call. It seems like your still there credit. You can either refund me back that money or you can correct the error with my account. But this seems to be the only way to reach you since you just send a default email and never reply.
Good and bad
by Mike467372 on 2020/10/30 18:07
I’m a longtime user and the service and terms have been generally fine. But there are issues. It goes to full screen ads after a use which is absolutely intolerable to me. I added the no ads for a year subscription recently, it worked briefly but then the ads came back after a few days. Two help emails have not changed it. I’m about to complain directly to Apple about the subscription problem. Another longtime complaint is that they block my internet provider email domain so I can’t use my primary email. It’s a standard larger regional internet service in the US. Why?
Horrible phone service
by Hoffius on 2018/09/18 18:11
When you want to make a call it’s 50/50 if it will get dropped no matter if you have 3G full bars, 4G full bars or the absolute best WiFi imaginable. And when someone calls you, you will hit answer and the call will be dropped almost instantly when you put it up to your ear. I’ve put money into this app and it still doesn’t matter smh you would think making a phone call would be pretty easy in this day and age but not with this app. Almost lost out on a job because of its inconsistency.
Overall
by 2?/451 on 2018/06/05 23:36
Overall the app works as advertised... ish. Now it has become a “let’s see how many ways we can dig into your pockets” app. My biggest issue is that they will “reclaim” your phone number if you haven’t used it in a short while. Unless of course, you buy your number for a year. I’d rather they cut out the ability to get “free” credits by watching the advertisements and just make us pay for the minutes. Let’s be honest, most people are using this app as a ghost number for people they don’t want to know their real number.
Texts not as secure as you think
by MWD Business on 2019/04/07 13:29
I had been with the airport few years, and had my number taken in December even with more than $10 in credit. After failing to get a response from customer service about what happened, I decided to go with a new number. Since taking my number, I’ve noticed that I’ve been receiving other peoples random text messages. And these texts are very explicit. I try to inform next class about it, but customer support has not responded. Be careful of your attacks because others are receiving your communication. And I do have proof as evidence.
App works but no response from support

Edit 2: this application is pure trash. Can’t send an image to anyone. Can’t sent a hyperlink to anyone. You don’t know if a text goes though or not. Support does not respond to any emails. Trash all around. I have emailed 6 times regarding issues with the app, with no response. So I’m writing this review. There is a known issue with sending hyperlinks in texts and sending pictures to t-mobile customers. Hopefully the developer will see this review with the issues listed above. Once these issues are resolved I will change my review score.
Annoying

Annoying since they made people change numbers from what we started with. Now I get 3 calls in the morning and 3 calls in the evening all back to back first call from a number second 2 calls unknown. I have never had that issue with my old number. I am about my wits end and will be looking for a new app. There is no way to stop the junk calls and tech support does not care. I have contacted several times and yet have gotten a answer. I highly do not recommend this app at all until something is done. FIX THIS OR LOOSE CUSTOMERS!!!!!!
