    Yessss Get this app if you have an iPod, iPad, or iPhone that has been shut off your provider. As for me, I have two iPods and an iPhone that has been shut off the provider. I linked all of them under the same account. I can text as (724) ***-**** and nobody knows that I don't actually have a phone!!! This app is perfect and has no flaws, unless you have absolutely no tolerances for ads. The ads only pop up at the bottom of your screen AFTER you send a message. It's not too bad. I usually can't stand ads, but this doesn't interfere with the quality of the app. You can also, if you double-text, click the little "x" in the corner of the ad to view the keyboard again. You get your notifications as always. Text free also can text you personally when you have updates or to remind you that if your phone number isn't used within a certain amount of time, it will be given to someone else. But anyone that uses this app usually uses it frequently and doesn't have the issue. It only happened to me a few years back when I only got the app to text my mom for a busy month, and right after that I didn't use it. I got a new number, with ease, and now I can use it any time I wish. You may also reserve your number for a small fee. For free you may record your own voicemail. You may also choose your own ringtone, and on Androids you can use your pre-installed ringtones on your device. I recommend this app to anyone.

    this is a great app. it let's you have a second number if that's what your looking for. it allows you to do wifi calling and messages. to totally understandable that after about a month of using there service for free they require you to to upgrade from free to premium service. it's only $9.99 a month. you can't find cheaper service then that.

    Best free texting app ever! Only app of it's kind that's let me keep the same number for over a year without having to pay for anything. There is an option to get unlimited minutes n no ads for $9.99 a month which isn't too bad but I'm happy with the free service. Only complaint is that it will crash from time to time or I'll get my texts later than the timestamp on it says it came through. Besides the delay in receiving texts its great!

    this app is good and i enjoy the unlimited texting. a couple of things though: 1) app is glitchy/slow. i’m trying to navigate to the home screen and i have to tap it a couple of times. also when i new message comes in, it takes a while to load. 2) time limit on calls is VERY annoying!! i’m trying to talk with my friends and family over the phone, and i have to say “i gotta go” because i am going to RUN OUT OF TIME. i’m trying to have an important conversation that you shouldn’t have to pay for! 3) PLEASE ADD A DARK MODE! please, please, PLEASE add a dark mode to the app! it will be so much for efficient and appealing! the light mode is not very good (my opinion and i’m sure others agree) 4) the ads get very annoying, it would be recommend to lower the ad amount, even though it might be out of your control. 5) random numbers keep calling me: make it stop!! every day, i’m constantly getting random calls, and it’s annoying cause i have to block and remove each one! other than that, i enjoy that you can change the pic for the home screen/convo screen and that you have your own phone number. i will love the app more if you listen to my requests, thanks for reading this! 😊😊

    Needed a secondary text app for my business contacts, so that I didn't have to carry an entire second phone. Text Free has been awesome! Use it both on my phone & desktop at the office. Just wish you could change the contacts on your mobile app to names instead of just the phone number, like you can on the desktop version.
  • Glitchy, freezes, auto directs to safari/appstore Sep 22, 2019

    By BRO 77
    When I click the message it will often freeze up and I will have to close out the app, double click home, swipe up, and then restart the app literally 4-5 times before I can click one of the messages and it'll take me to the message. When I type it will often freeze up so I can type or mid typing it'll freeze and unfreeze so I'll type one part of a word and finish the last half of a word or two later and then I'll have to use auto correct and rewrite the couple words it froze for. Sometimes it will take me to the message and the box to text won't even be on the messaging screen and I'll have to close out and reload the app for it to go back to normal but then the when I do it freezes up and I have to close and reload it a couple more times to get it to unfreeze. Sometimes it'll take me to safari or the app store even if I didn't click the ads, and no my finger doesn't slip and accidentally click the ads, it just does it by itself sometimes. I'll sometimes have the text box glitched out at the very top of the screen so I can't see the other person's message, or the text bar will just be frozen 3/4s from the bottom inbetween the ad that's covering up half the screen and the top. Paying to get rid of the ads may help with the ad related glitches, but it won't help with the rest of the glitchyness with the app, my advice would be to GET ANY OTHER TEXTING APP!

    I'll give u the good news first...this app gives u talk & text virtually free, & u get a choice of phone numbers out of their small selection. The bad news... if u leave the app page ur calls will be dropped, every few days when u try 2 open the app it won't open, some of the days when I go into the app store & see it needs 2 be updated it seems 2 be easy enough, other days no update is available and u still can't get into the app from the play store. I am going to reinstall & see what happens.

    This. App. Is. Awful. I downloaded it recently bc I'd used it ages ago on my iPod, but clearly there have been no updates since then to optimize app performance. Some issues I've had: people on other line experiencing intense echoes when I place them on speaker... first time they try to call and I pick up, they can't hear me, resulting in lost calls and lost business. Suffice it to say I am uninstalling. I paid for minutes and still get ads ETA: there is no place to change that setting!!!

    Not a reliable texting app in my experience. I will text someone and they usually don't receive the messages, and vice versa whenever they attempt to text me.(my mom and I have tested this by texting each other in the same room to prove we're not getting each other's texts) Sometimes I will recieve the messages several hours later. My internet connection is always pretty good, so there's no issue with that to be causing this problem.

    This app is great if your calls or texts aren't important. I sometimes don't receive texts until the next day. Almost every phone call i make, the other side can't hear me. The app almost always freezes so i either can't hang up, or can't press any of the buttons.

    Started off good then went downhill. I get that I have to watch videos for a whole 1 minute to be added to my time 🙄 but half the time you don't get the minutes for watching the videos. I just watched 3 in a row and received no minutes. The text delay is insane. People won't receive my texts until the next day, pics are near impossible to send and receive, and I'm on a strong internet connection. Based on this I'm not paying b/c there's no guarantee it'll be better just b/c you pay.
  • Stop the begging! Jun 9, 2021

    By Fototico
    They keep begging to allow the. To track me across apps. Hey Pinger, get lost! There is bo reason to track people. Not tracking people do not prevent you from displaying lousy apps. Which makes my old review still true to this day. I’ve been using this app for something like more than 10 years or so. I’ve seen it grow from a dumb little app to what it is today. Unfortunately with dumb full screen ads it has gone down the path of cheap junk apps. I used to pay to remove ads when it was only a few bucks per year, but once they went to the monthly fee I stopped subscribing and stopped using the app as much. Now with the full screen ads I am seriously considering deleing the app. Sad but if there is one thing I am not willing to put up with is full screen ads. I was a paramedic for ten years and now I’ve been a patrol officer for three years. In all those years I’ve recommended Textfree and Pringer to thousands of people, but now that will stop and I will wait one or two updates to see if one of the developers regain some sense of common decency stop with the greed for more and more money. The app as not advanced much, if any, in years to justify the move to full screen ads.
  • Not working for me Nov 13, 2021

    By Kikizawa
    I have used this app mostly for verification codes and being able to send images to classmates. I am a foreigner living in US and I dont need a sim that much because of my short stay as a student, I use WiFi mostly. If it wasnt that most of classmates uses app like telegram andthat app ask for phone numbers, I really dislike I have to pay for a month to be able to see verification codes. I dont wanna risk money and the service doesnt work after paying it, I dont make calls and I think it is unfair you have limitations with texting. If you wanna charge for codes, I think you would let us watch ads or charge for a week or something similar for verification codes. I suggest to give trial period of the monthly plan to be able to see if it really works because not everyone has a good WiFi and devices. I also dislike the images I send to classmates cant be seen in their phones and this one a feature I liked of this app. Not everyone needs a monthly plan for codes if they dont use unlimited calls and lots of students dont have too much money so we choose this kind of apps for needs that USA asks to verification or keep in touch with close people to us.
  • Not A Good App Anymore Dec 5, 2017

    By Jonathen_crow
    I’ve seen countless people complaining about their issues with this app. Mostly that they’re able to send text messages but not receive them. And I’ve also seen that through my own efforts their response team for help is completely unresponsive. In a lot of places on the website you’ll see that they take a short time to respond, but in reality they take upwards of weeks, it’s been several weeks since I submitted my first request and I still have no response. Most other people cannot find responses, or solutions to their problems. They seem unwilling to respond anyone that is not buying credits. This was once a good app, really great for people who possibly lived in bad areas were their Wi-Fi was stronger than their cell phone signal. And were unable for whatever reason to use their actual cell phone services to contact other people. It used to be really great especially when you were trying to do multiple things at once, or you were unsure of someone having your real number. Now it’s not worth the amount of time it takes to download.
  • Used to work Mar 20, 2021

    By 26atom
    I used this app quite a bit. The old version worked beautifully. There were ads, but they weren't intrusive. For some reason I couldn't transfer my old number to my new iPad so i downloaded this new abomination. I was hit by 2 ads immediately. I also cant find Where to re-add ANY contacts. The intuitive usage is hidden. I have an update to add to this review. Now that i have used it for a few weeks there is one HUGE NUISANCE that has been included in the update. The ads now replace some of your contacts, crowding out your numbers. How did the EVER allow this? Also, there are ZERO ways to delete them. Someone left me a voicemail in error and i am unable to get their erroneous call out of my contacts. There used to be an "erase conversation" button, which because you now must scroll through ads, has completely disappeared. Ive been using the new updates for some time now. I’m convinced the numbers have been sold, as i now receive a robocall every 30 minutes and obscene messages daily. I’m looking for a better app. I would never recommend anyone download this. They offer no way to block or erase incoming calls, causing your contacts to be lost far down the list. Its truly awful. The 2021 update turned the app sideways so now you can’t use it in the normal landscape position, causing you to be forced to use the keypad which is now half as large. It keeps getting worse.

    Best free app for texting for when you need another number. I hope that none of you ever have to have another number for the reasons that I have had to. The only complaint I have is the fact that you have to buy minutes and the cost but on the same token with that; If someone tries to call the number you have the option to have a call go directly to voicemail, so if the Caller leaves a voicemail you can still get the communication, along with the ability of an automatic text response to let them know that you cannot receive telephone calls on that number and make them aware of that fact. So I still give it five stars despite the downfall of having to buy minutes. They give you some free minutes to start, and methods/other ways to gain free minutes IF you want to take the time to go through all of the surveys and marketing etc. When I have used the actual calling function of the app, the quality has been great. So overall for being a free app I give it five thumbs up :-)
  • 5 years, 5 stars Jun 1, 2018

    I have had this app for 5 years (yes, 5 years) so it is imperative that I write a review! I got this app when I started college and did not have phone service yet, and I used it for over a year constantly. I've kept it ever since, and I still have the phone number that I started with. I moved to a rural area, where getting cell service is nearly impossible, and this app came in handy for actually being able to talk on the phone without needing to be in specific corner of the house or outside. This is the best free texting and calling app I've ever found. There are, of course, things that annoy me (like the amount of ads, not being able to make calls for free and only receive them, and the phone number going away if you haven't used it in a while). This is a completely free app, though, so I couldn't be happier. If you want more capabilities, you could either pay for the app or pay for phone service. For everything that this app does, I can't help but to give it 5 stars.
  • ALWAYS saves my BE-HIND whenever I’m in a BIND! Jul 4, 2021

    By PB&J721
    I have truly unlimited everything with my phone plan so I’m not the one who needs to save data or minutes and texts because I use my plan’s monthly allotment too early...I’m also not the one who needs an extra number to give out to handsome strangers I meet at the bar and have to make sure my wife doesn’t catch me! **not judging btw just saying this app has several uses for an assortment of demographics** No I’m the air head that misplaces their phone and always needs to log in to the computer or iPad to send messages alerting my best friend I accidentally left my phone in her car...AGAIN...and then beg her to drive back over and drop it off...AGAIN!! Anyhow, I appreciate that I can log in from virtually any device and have my contacts readily available to me for calls and texts because there is no way I could remember all of my contacts phone numbers or call for help without this app!! Thanks guys and gals at Text Free!

    Best free texting app ever! Only app of it's kind that's let me keep the same number for over a year without having to pay for anything. There is an option to get unlimited minutes n no ads for $9.99 a month which isn't too bad but I'm happy with the free service. Only complaint is that it will crash from time to time or I'll get my texts later than the timestamp on it says it came through. Besides the delay in receiving texts its great!

    Needed a secondary text app for my business contacts, so that I didn't have to carry an entire second phone. Text Free has been awesome! Use it both on my phone & desktop at the office. Just wish you could change the contacts on your mobile app to names instead of just the phone number, like you can on the desktop version.
  • unlimited talk+text to any phone number regardless if they are a text now user or not Apr 9, 2020

    By Graceland kelly
    okay so i’ve tried talkatone and almost every free calling and texting app out there but i always come back to this one.. one thing i love about talkatone that this app lacks is that talkatone you only need the calling “ credits “ for international calling... on that app you can send unlimited texts and calls to anyone without calling minutes... regardless if they have the app or not and i LOVE this app but i do think that dark mode should come to this app it would be BEAUTIFUL i’d suggest also “ read receipts “ and i think we should have unlimited text and calls... the calling credits should just be for international calling..so basically we just have unlimited texting and calling to any number regardless if they have this app or not with ads to keep it free just like the talkatone app does!!! other than the whole calling minutes thing that’s the ONLY thing i don’t like other than that this app is amazing and the best of the best but please give us dark mode and give us unlimited free calling i’d appreciate it! and so would do many other people!!!
  • Love it! But needs changes...... Apr 28, 2021

    By 💘🍪😆😄
    Okay, I need this app. Because I don’t have a phone, and my Apple iPad only texts to other Apple products. With this app I can text my mom and dad who have Samsung phones. Also some of my older cousins. (The younger ones don’t have phones.) The changes that you should make is that you get a lot more calling time. Because my mom and dad are going to be working a lot over the summer, and I’m gonna be home alone with my older twin, and little sister. And they are gonna be gone a lot! (My Mom has to go in for training for a new job, and my dad is a truck driver, hauling stuff and farming.) And 10 minutes of calling time. AWWW HECK NO. Okay... I know you can also earn calling time, but I’m too young to make any purchases, or subscribe, or start a free trial for anything. If you wanna know how young it’s younger then 14 but older then 10. And there is no way I’m BUYING CALLING MINUTES. So that’s part is stupid. But I love how you can customize the background colors of the text and stuff. That cool. Welp that’s all I have to say. PLEASE CHANGE THE CALLING MINUTES! Bye!

    I found the text free app to work well. I like the freedom to choose whatever number I want from a list of available numbers. The ability to watch a short video to get minutes to use the phone instead of text only is a plus. I have found myself in spots before where I didn't have a working phone and text free allowed me to still be able to reach someone to offer aid and assistance.

    Texting works near perfect, but calls not so much. Calls often don't go through, or randomly cut out. But by far the biggest issue is when calls come in, my phone simply doesn't ring, nor does a screen pop up telling me there's an incoming call. Yet, after I've "missed" the call, I get a notification informing me of the missed call. I've tried all sorts of different settings in an attempt to remedy it, and nothing works. So I basically can't receive calls.. BUT, for a free service, it's okay.
  • Mostly positive with a few cons Jun 3, 2020

    By maxcess
    Like the app a lot! Ben using it for couple of years. It has almost all the features as your actual phone like calling, texting (pictures / videos), and voicemail(even voicemail in text). Couple of cons that I have experienced is that it drains my battery super fast so if I’m not home or near a charging station, I’d think twice about using it. Also, it freezes sometimes but not often. Finally, you can not turn the notification off for the incoming calls. Even if notifications for the app is completely turned off, you won’t see the text messages but if someone calls you, it will still comes through. I’m not sure if it’s a glitch or is just how it works given it’s using your cellular data. Would like to know if there is a solution for that.
  • Decent app Dec 13, 2017

    By shivrs01
    I’ve used this app for quite some time over different versions of the iPhone. Overall, I am happy with it and would recommend it. A couple improvements that I think would be great to see. First, some additional ringtones. The current ones sound a bit outdated, like ones that were on my Motorola Razr back in the day. Second, I understand this app is supported by ads but it would be neat to see them less intrusive. By this I mean it would be helpful if the ads did not become a larger size once you click send on a message. If you’re having a conversation and sending multiple messages back and forth, the larger ads get annoying and do get in the way. I would have no issue with the banner size ads at the bottom (like the size when you are typing out a message before pushing send).
  • Best For Preteens Or Younger Even Older! Nov 21, 2017

    I’ve used this app at the age of 10 and am still using today to talk to my friends,family, and sometimes pizza delivery (just kidding I don’t know if they have that feature but I hope they do). Great for those who don’t want an actual phone or doesn’t have one at the moment also for the ones who don’t like mobile companies that will rather stick to WiFi, but here’s why I give it a 4. There are two essential things you guys have to do that bug me! limit ads because every time every 15-30 seconds I see an ad pop up it’s not that annoying but I would love to see less. 2, from the day I got the app I’m not sure if this feature is there and that feature is groups! I haven’t seen or know how to do it please help and thanks if you read it have a good day
  • Does what’s advertised with some quirks Apr 6, 2022

    By Fernelius
    This app does what it advertises with some quirks. Appreciate that the ad no longer covers up the message field. This made it quite difficult to type a message without using another app and cut and pasting the text in to the field. When connected to an external monitor, however, it still has some problems. Sometimes, it will try to put part of a landscape version in portrait format and then crash. Other times, it opens in portrait on a 1600 x 1200 (landscape) display; however, the trackpad operates sideways (moving left on the trackpad moves the cursor up, etc…). The developer might want to connect to an external display/keyboard, trackpad/mouse and do some testing. Using a 2018 iPad Pro 11” with 1600 x 1200 display, external keyboard, Apple Trackpad 2.
  • great but a couple of things (PLEASE READ May 18, 2022

    By Jazzy_Jazz :)
    this app is good and i enjoy the unlimited texting. a couple of things though: 1) app is glitchy/slow. i’m trying to navigate to the home screen and i have to tap it a couple of times. also when i new message comes in, it takes a while to load. 2) time limit on calls is VERY annoying!! i’m trying to talk with my friends and family over the phone, and i have to say “i gotta go” because i am going to RUN OUT OF TIME. i’m trying to have an important conversation that you shouldn’t have to pay for! 3) PLEASE ADD A DARK MODE! please, please, PLEASE add a dark mode to the app! it will be so much for efficient and appealing! the light mode is not very good (my opinion and i’m sure others agree) 4) the ads get very annoying, it would be recommend to lower the ad amount, even though it might be out of your control. 5) random numbers keep calling me: make it stop!! every day, i’m constantly getting random calls, and it’s annoying cause i have to block and remove each one! other than that, i enjoy that you can change the pic for the home screen/convo screen and that you have your own phone number. i will love the app more if you listen to my requests, thanks for reading this! 😊😊

    I use this app for a work phone number. Really need you to fix some things though. Caller ID frequently displays the name of the previous caller instead of whoever is currently calling. When someone calls me there is no option to silence or turn down the ringer, only decline/accept the call. Ringer is at max volume always. Audio rarely works through Bluetooth earbuds, and when it does, it is at max volume and hurts my ears. I really want to love this app but I'm thinking I need to keep looking.

    As I was reading the comments and most all of them are experiencing the same issue,. And it's also my issue with you service,. Texting is great,. But incoming calls are very difficult to answer and 8 out of 10 calls will go to voicemail or you run out of time to answer the call,.It's mostly always because of a Pop up ad appears at same time as the phone starts ringing,. But anyway. The answer to the people complaints are always different reasons saying it's on their end,. Well it's not,. Fix it

    Text free has been great, I like the interface, q&A available for the user and easy settings. I can't access some features I think are only available to iPhone users, I haven't been able to figure out attaching gifs bc they freeze when sent and when I insert text along with an attachment, it often cuts the message short. I try not to use it for phone calls because it does offer limited minutes. Thank you text free!

    ads make it slow and difficult to use but free anyways, unreliable at times, ads make application crash or not open at all, when retrieving messages or there is a call... useful if you need to send a text to some stranger!!! Number is taken away if not used often. Note: app is responsive more often... wanted to clarify for those who want to know, something has changed, for the better... thanks Dev. For the effort.

    This app's the customer support and texting services are excellent. It's easy to use. Successfully placing calls is iffy. I can make local calls and 80% of the time they are clear and don't get dropped. Outside of my community or on hold for long wait times, my calls get dropped & the connections are awful. If I do get through to a human on the other side, calls drop or I can't be heard well or at all, so I get hung up on everytime. Paying for talk time, I'll still keep the service...
  • Two Months of texts and calls Apr 5, 2022

    By mamaAvoidsSpam
    I use this app to shield my new number from spam and garbage and for that it does the job. But I switched over all possible non-personal calls to the text free number including the public library, businesses and retailers I have rewards with, and even potential financial advisors that I plugged my name and number online and the website “finds local matches”. The text part of it is acceptable, even with the annoying ads, but incoming and outgoing calls are unbearable. I paid $1.99 for some certain amount of outgoing call time and I hear clicks and constant bad service type interruptions (I hear only every other word) to the point where I have to call back on my regular number. This happens 100% of the time I use the app for incoming or outgoing calls. I’m going to have to say goodbye to this app because of it. But for text I would say this app is satisfactory especially if you are trying to avoid Google. But overall, as is, it’s gotta go.
  • I cannot have a standby number Nov 28, 2019

    By pleazando0611
    Hello pinger, i am a huge fan of your app, TextFree I used it the first time and it was okay, in less than 2 weeks I had about 200 call units. I logged out my account from my iPhone, trying to login back I cannot. The app says my number has expired and incorrect password, I tried to recover my password through my verified email address it didn’t work out. I have been using same number to call and text friends in the United states, I deleted the app loaded it again to my phone but each time I get a new number, when I logout our of the app the number disappears and changes to a new one, and this is a routine thing that happen anytime I logout of the app and try to log back in. Even when I don’t logout but close the app, when I try to open it again the number changes. Pls try and fix it as soon as possible. This is my email. Looking forward to hearing from you. Thanks
  • Minor improvements would make this app great Jul 28, 2018

    By AnKa12685
    The app is good but could use improvement. 1. It would be great to know if someone has read the message. It use to show a check mark but that option has disappeared a while back with one of the updates. 2. It’s crazy how many messages never get delivered and neither party knows seeing how you can’t tell what was read 3. Pictures!! When you click on the picture weather you go to save it or just see it, when you get out it always takes you to the very end of the conversation. It would be nice to see the the option of a gallery collection or a way to just scroll through the pictures alone. On Kik you clicked on the picture and you’re able to swipe left and right to go through the photos that are in your current conversation
  • Used to be a great app Sep 22, 2018

    By Original D. Wade
    I’ve used this app as a secondary number for almost 10 years now and I have watched it deteriorate slowly. The two main issues I have now are that : 1. When using the calling service it places numbers in my call list and when receiving calls through the app it rings through my native phone without any way of stopping it even if notifications for the app are off. 2. All of sudden when making calls the first song from my music list plays in the background. Needless to say that I waste the call minute and there seems to be no way of stopping it. It has come time for me to seek another better working app elsewhere. I called and emailed tech support and no solutions were offered just meaningless apologies. Still great for texting but don’t pay for minutes.

People won't receive my texts until the next day, pics are near impossible to send and receive, and I'm on a strong internet connection. Based on this I'm not paying b/c there's no guarantee it'll be better just b/c you pay.
  • Not A Good App Anymore Dec 5, 2017

    By Jonathen_crow
    I’ve seen countless people complaining about their issues with this app. Mostly that they’re able to send text messages but not receive them. And I’ve also seen that through my own efforts their response team for help is completely unresponsive. In a lot of places on the website you’ll see that they take a short time to respond, but in reality they take upwards of weeks, it’s been several weeks since I submitted my first request and I still have no response. Most other people cannot find responses, or solutions to their problems. They seem unwilling to respond anyone that is not buying credits. This was once a good app, really great for people who possibly lived in bad areas were their Wi-Fi was stronger than their cell phone signal. And were unable for whatever reason to use their actual cell phone services to contact other people. It used to be really great especially when you were trying to do multiple things at once, or you were unsure of someone having your real number. Now it’s not worth the amount of time it takes to download.
  • Used to work Mar 20, 2021

    By 26atom
    I used this app quite a bit. The old version worked beautifully. There were ads, but they weren't intrusive. For some reason I couldn't transfer my old number to my new iPad so i downloaded this new abomination. I was hit by 2 ads immediately. I also cant find Where to re-add ANY contacts. The intuitive usage is hidden. I have an update to add to this review. Now that i have used it for a few weeks there is one HUGE NUISANCE that has been included in the update. The ads now replace some of your contacts, crowding out your numbers. How did the EVER allow this? Also, there are ZERO ways to delete them. Someone left me a voicemail in error and i am unable to get their erroneous call out of my contacts. There used to be an "erase conversation" button, which because you now must scroll through ads, has completely disappeared. Ive been using the new updates for some time now. I’m convinced the numbers have been sold, as i now receive a robocall every 30 minutes and obscene messages daily. I’m looking for a better app. I would never recommend anyone download this. They offer no way to block or erase incoming calls, causing your contacts to be lost far down the list. Its truly awful. The 2021 update turned the app sideways so now you can’t use it in the normal landscape position, causing you to be forced to use the keypad which is now half as large. It keeps getting worse.
  • Used to be great Feb 16, 2021

    By Creative-nickname-#-1
    I used to survive on this app, but the free version keeps degrading. The ads used to be just that: ads. Now they run the show, popping up full screen whenever you open the app...which, in consequence, makes opening it a 30 second process (even if you just had it open and had bopped out to check something else). It is also iPhone-friendly-ONLY now, in that it doesn’t offer the landscape view for us iPad users, which is a major sadness. Thirdly, at one point, they used to have it so that only part of the conversations loaded (making it a quicker loading process), but now alllll of your conversations, in their entirety, load...which just makes it run slowly. I don’t know if anything except the ads are fixed in the premium version, but...the slowness of the app and its inability to go into landscape make me hesitate to use it nowadays, which is a major bummer, because I used to absolutely love this app!
  • Not how it used to be Apr 21, 2019

    By frankiemills61
    This app has some good features, but now days it’s really annoying. I get emails daily. I get random calls when only a few people have the number, and they didn’t give it out. When you go into the area to view your calling minutes, there’s ways to earn minutes that don’t even work. I’ve done 3 things recently that were supposed to give me a lot of minutes, and they never changed. I only have 12 and should have about 200. This is very frustrating for me, because their programs don’t work. Also, you used to be about to watch videos and get 2 minutes, now you only receive one. That’s a lot of long videos to watch to only receive 1 minute. 2 wasn’t ideal either, but it was way better than 1. I’ve been using Pinger/TextFree off and on for years and years. It’s just going downhill and is less reliable. My old account had 500 calling minutes cause it would actually work
  • poor communication + becoming horrible app Sep 23, 2018

    By Y$wajjur
    I’ve used this app for about 2 years now, and when you complete offers for minutes it’s literally wasting your time and storage. You have to download apps just for the minutes, sometimes deleting the apps you already have depending your storage then when you complete said app, NO MINUTES GOES TO YOUR ACCOUNT. When you reach out to the developers, they won’t only not reply to you, but they won’t even reconcile for time wasted on apps. I prefer to have a decent amount of minutes to make calls in regards to work, and when I complete a task, I expect to have those minutes I chose. But not only do I not have those minutes, I also have a company not replying or giving some type of feedback when I reach out to let them know the situation. Great for texting, but calling? No way 2/10.
  • Former satisfied customer, now really disappointed. Jan 15, 2021

    By Holland
    I was using this app as my primary way of texting (I didn’t use to have a phone service provider) for over a decade. And for a long time it did the job fine. But lately they added ads that overload the app and cause it to crash all the time, and the only way to get rid of them is to pay a monthly fee. Additionally, I now get AT LEAST 6-7 spam calls, texts, or voicemails via this app. I’ve reached out to Text Free multiple times for help, seeing if they can do anything about my issues, and they never got back to me. Now that I have real phone service, I’m deleting the app, sadly. I feel sentimental because I’ve had the same text free number for over 10 years, but it’s just a nuisance now. 🙁
  • Please add search bar Jun 5, 2019

    By Cookie728836
    Hello, I wish you guys would add a search bar at the top of the messages window so that that way if I need to find a certain message or a certain chat, i can search it. I didn’t remember who sent me an address I needed so I had to browse through multiple messages with multiple people and I wish it was easier because I wasn’t able to find it. I’ve been using this app for years and I just wish that you guys would catch on to what other messaging platforms are doing. You can do it on iMessage where you just type what you’re searching for and you can find your needed messages instantly without having to do all that work to find it. Hopefully you guys add this in your next update, and I hope you have a great rest of your day! Thank you.
  • Glitchy, freezes, auto directs to safari/appstore Sep 22, 2019

    By BRO 77
    When I click the message it will often freeze up and I will have to close out the app, double click home, swipe up, and then restart the app literally 4-5 times before I can click one of the messages and it'll take me to the message. When I type it will often freeze up so I can type or mid typing it'll freeze and unfreeze so I'll type one part of a word and finish the last half of a word or two later and then I'll have to use auto correct and rewrite the couple words it froze for. Sometimes it will take me to the message and the box to text won't even be on the messaging screen and I'll have to close out and reload the app for it to go back to normal but then the when I do it freezes up and I have to close and reload it a couple more times to get it to unfreeze. Sometimes it'll take me to safari or the app store even if I didn't click the ads, and no my finger doesn't slip and accidentally click the ads, it just does it by itself sometimes. I'll sometimes have the text box glitched out at the very top of the screen so I can't see the other person's message, or the text bar will just be frozen 3/4s from the bottom inbetween the ad that's covering up half the screen and the top. Paying to get rid of the ads may help with the ad related glitches, but it won't help with the rest of the glitchyness with the app, my advice would be to GET ANY OTHER TEXTING APP!

    This. App. Is. Awful. I downloaded it recently bc I'd used it ages ago on my iPod, but clearly there have been no updates since then to optimize app performance. Some issues I've had: people on other line experiencing intense echoes when I place them on speaker... first time they try to call and I pick up, they can't hear me, resulting in lost calls and lost business. Suffice it to say I am uninstalling. I paid for minutes and still get ads ETA: there is no place to change that setting!!!

I will text someone and they usually don't receive the messages, and vice versa whenever they attempt to text me.(my mom and I have tested this by texting each other in the same room to prove we're not getting each other's texts) Sometimes I will recieve the messages several hours later. My internet connection is always pretty good, so there's no issue with that to be causing this problem.
  • Stop the begging! Jun 9, 2021

    By Fototico
    They keep begging to allow the. To track me across apps. Hey Pinger, get lost! There is bo reason to track people. Not tracking people do not prevent you from displaying lousy apps. Which makes my old review still true to this day. I’ve been using this app for something like more than 10 years or so. I’ve seen it grow from a dumb little app to what it is today. Unfortunately with dumb full screen ads it has gone down the path of cheap junk apps. I used to pay to remove ads when it was only a few bucks per year, but once they went to the monthly fee I stopped subscribing and stopped using the app as much. Now with the full screen ads I am seriously considering deleing the app. Sad but if there is one thing I am not willing to put up with is full screen ads. I was a paramedic for ten years and now I’ve been a patrol officer for three years. In all those years I’ve recommended Textfree and Pringer to thousands of people, but now that will stop and I will wait one or two updates to see if one of the developers regain some sense of common decency stop with the greed for more and more money. The app as not advanced much, if any, in years to justify the move to full screen ads.
  • Not working for me Nov 13, 2021

    By Kikizawa
    I have used this app mostly for verification codes and being able to send images to classmates. I am a foreigner living in US and I dont need a sim that much because of my short stay as a student, I use WiFi mostly. If it wasnt that most of classmates uses app like telegram andthat app ask for phone numbers, I really dislike I have to pay for a month to be able to see verification codes. I dont wanna risk money and the service doesnt work after paying it, I dont make calls and I think it is unfair you have limitations with texting. If you wanna charge for codes, I think you would let us watch ads or charge for a week or something similar for verification codes. I suggest to give trial period of the monthly plan to be able to see if it really works because not everyone has a good WiFi and devices. I also dislike the images I send to classmates cant be seen in their phones and this one a feature I liked of this app. Not everyone needs a monthly plan for codes if they dont use unlimited calls and lots of students dont have too much money so we choose this kind of apps for needs that USA asks to verification or keep in touch with close people to us.

    I contacted your help desk, although I’m skeptical after this stunt,To request a refund. I usually use Google Voice and was locked out of my account. I reserved the phone number through text free and hadn’t even used it. That was about 4 days ago and yesterday when I regained access to my Google Voice the first thing I did was cancel my subscription in Settings in my iPhone and all look to be successful it was no longer there. Then today I get notified through my bank that I was charged by you to reserve the number and it is showing back up active in my subscriptions. And I know that I canceled the subscription correctly and it was gone. It’s only $4.99 and that isn’t the issue. The issue is I was charged after cancelling. If you were to charge me it should have been at sign up. Very fishy. And the transaction is pending. It’s not as though you charged days ago and now it hit. Please rectify this situation because it is wrong and bad business.

    the ads are crazy! I would really like it to be a one time payment to get rid of ads, not a subscription. And I do NOT like the whole minutes thing. Also PLEASE make it so you can leave group chats! Sure you can delete the chat but then next time someone texts to it it just pops up again. I really think it could be a lot better. And it’s super glitchy and sometimes doesn’t send notifications so I miss messages. UPDATE: um so I had headphones in and went in the app, after listening to music so know my headphones weren’t the problem, and I heard a sound like a bunch of flies buzzing just while I was in the app though like what the heck that’s kinda creepy I want a explanation or I’ll delete this app Note: I’m getting tired of the purple, could you make the colors customizable? SPAM: y’all I have been getting calls from a bunch of random number idk. How the heck are they getting my number? Hmm? I’d like an answer please.

    By Need Landscape Mode
    I have been using this texting app for many years and liked it for many reasons, until now! I always use my tablet in Landscape mode like many of you do. Well in one of their last updates, they took that capability away! I am very disappointed because I use this app on my tablet and need the landscape mode. Now I have to turn my head sideways to read my text message and type my response awkwardly because the keyboard is flipped to the side and not on the bottom. Please bring back the capability for Landscape mode again in one of your next updates, PLEASSSE!!! UPDATE: Thank you for responding to my review. Your response though was NOT SATISFACTORY to the problem of TAKING AWAY the LANDSCAPE MODE!!! People can send the man to the moon, but you cannot figure a way to BRING BACK the LANDSCAPE MODE that you TOOK AWAY??? I know if you put all your Developer’s smart minds TOGETHER, you can bring it back IF YOU REALLY WANTED TOO!!! PLEASE BRING IT BACK ASAP!!!

    I don’t know how anyone could like this app. I have to watch an ad literally any time I want to read a text message or switch to a new conversation. An ad takes up literally half the screen while you’re texting. You can’t receive gifs. Videos are poor quality. Texts received or sent post twice until you exit out of the conversation, watch an ad, and then go back in. The typing often lags. I only use it to message my mom and sister that don’t have iPhones when I’m out of signal using WiFi. But honestly I could handle all of the bugs IF IT WASN’T FOR THE CONSTANT ADS! The fact I have to wait for an ad to allow me to exit it every time I try to go between conversations or read a new message is absolute garbage. And this is the sole reason I’ll be finding another messaging app. I would literally rather pay for a functional app than have to deal with this garbage.
  • What a pain this app is May 21, 2022

    I download this app as a backup in case my phone dies, bad signal, or I’m using my iPad. The problem is the ads ( yes, I know they are there to keep the app free) but busy they pop up when you’re trying to answer a call, respond to a text or call some? When they appear it causes the app to crash. Either on my phone data or Wi-Fi the app is just so slow. I can’t even call someone because the “ connection “ is bad and the call disconnects. I get these random calls from all over the place from people that are calling for someone else, or spammers. The worst thing about about this app is that they say it’s “ Free” but it’s not. You have to watch videos for minutes and when those run out ( I think you get 3) and that’s it, you either have to buy minutes that run out so fast or complete offers that takes you to every different spammer website. Yes this app is horrible. Goodbye
