Textfree gives you a real US phone number so you can text or call anyone, even if they don’t have the app. Textfree uses your data or Wi-Fi connection to keep you in touch with friends and family all over the globe—and with features like group messaging, picture messaging, international texting & calling, emoji, stickers and voicemail, it’s the only messaging app you’ll ever need. All for free.  YOU CAN’T BEAT THE ORIGINAL Textfree was the first free texting app in the app store. True story. Since 2009, Textfree has helped millions of people stay connected with friends and family. Since then, a lot of new and nifty features were added, but one thing’s always remained the same—Textfree is the fastest, most reliable and easiest to use texting app out there. SEND UNLIMITED FREE TEXTS & REAL MMS PICTURE MESSAGES With Textfree you get free SMS texting, totally free and unlimited. And now, Textfree is the first free texting app enabled with real MMS picture messaging just like a carrier phone – no strange looking links. That means you can send picture messages to all your friends, even if they don’t have Textfree! REAL PHONE NUMBER INCLUDED Not many free texting apps let you choose a real phone number. But having your own local phone number means you can call your grandma’s landline, order a pizza, SMS any number, and of course, hit up all your friends, even if they don’t have a smartphone. TEXT FREE WITH GROUP MESSAGES Textfree is the perfect free texting app for group messaging with all your contacts. You can create groups, leave groups, add participants and let everyone be part of the conversation. FREE CALLING  Free calling has never been better. Textfree-to-Textfree calling and any incoming calls are always free. Outbound calling minutes are easy to earn or super cheap to buy. Who doesn’t love free calling?

  • No more calling just free texting

    By Jennie xD
    I have used Pinger since 2012. So now 5 years later I am experiencing problems and I'm disappointed. I understand that Pinger runs on ads. Yet I am no longer given the option to watch videos to gain minutes instead in forced to either buy them in which my case I cannot afford it or I have to risk the safety of my personal information through surveys and different "offers" on third party websites. Which infact leads to sometimes not qualifying or to not transferring over the Textfree minutes/points after they already obtained my information. This is outrageous. I'm strongly disappointed with how now I have to consider looking at getting a different app. This app is great. Everything about it except for this.

  • Best texting app

    By lizzie_bo_bizzie
    The only reason I am not giving it a 5 star is because of all the dang adds, but as far as the actual app goes... it's great. It has been upgraded A LOT since I first started using it and has improved 100x! Love my Textfree!
  • Text Free is decent app

  • Wifi

    By rottencoconut
    This app should allow us to FaceTime,make phone calls,and message people offline bcuz having offline would be better just in case of emergencies
  • They finally gave me the promised minutes

    By jdheueyeherh
    Updated to three stars because they gave me the free minutes they promised me now three months into using the app. The app has a decent interface that I do not mind at all, phone calls sometimes drop out even with plenty of bars of service. But, it's a free call and you can always call back again and again and hope it works. There is a delay sometimes a significant delay from when I talk to when the person on the other line hears what I say. When I am able to receive verification code's at this number then I will give it five stars, they said they can usually talk to the website or something but this is not true and I am unable to register for any social sites or any other such sites as this is my only phone number so I am officially blocked from registering for any sites online. But I think this may be more of a problem with the zuckerfaces and the rest of the Jews running the Internet, however I would like apps like this to play hardball with them. SOMEBODY has got to GET TO these parasite kikes you know they're censoring things all over the Internet and refusing to let people on the sites if they don't have a phone number and give them their exact identity and access to everything they do. So essentially Jews are saying you are disallowed from using huge portions of the Internet unless you give up all your privacy to them.
  • Text Free

    I Love Text Free
  • Great...mostly

    By K-allen
    This is a great app for calling or texting. It's terrific how you can earn talk minutes by completing offers or trying new games. There are two huge bugs that need addressed before I can give this app the 5 stars it deserves, and once fixed I will update this review. First, audio. When playing music or streaming (like iHeart or Amazon Music), playback stops when you open the app. I txt a lot so this is hugely annoying. There's no sense at all in pausing the music to read and reply to a txt. This is major for me and cost 2 stars. The other issue is the context options like Copy Past. There's a bug that when you tap in the text box to paste text the "Paste" button appears for less than one second. It's nearly impossible to tap it fast enough and takes multiple tries. Same when trying to select and copy text. Once selected the "Copy" appears for less than one second. I've contacted customer support but never got a reply. Please update these issues and I'll gladly update to 5 stars!
