Great to reduce costs I use it with a data only sim. Works great. Calls and texts are able to send and receive seamlessly. There are a couple of bugs, such as will still vibrate for incoming call even though phone is on silent, text message notifications tend to disappear and you can't receive picture messages. Other than that it's good. I was skeptical too, but it actually works
Great when it works, which is never Ported two of our numbers over to fongo two months ago. Both my wife and I have two different brand phones and it constantly drops connection saying there is a network error. Despite this occurring on wifi or cellular data it consistently does this. On top of that nobody can hear us when they call us, audio cuts out despite us adjusting all settings in the app along with guidance from fongo support. If I call out using hangouts people can hear me just fine. It would be nice if they would fix this.
I liked it. I am using FONGO as my second phone. I found it very reliable. Today Dec 2, 2015 I am just requesting FONGO to improve breaking of sound during conversation. On the same network when I use Hangouts there is no breaking of sound. Today August 12, 2016 I am decreasing the rating to four star as FONGO has not improved the voice quality so far.
Great App Works fairly well. Am able to send massages and make\receive calls. Have been told by the person im chatting with that they can barely hear me or I am cutting out once in awhile. Please change your messaging section it looks bad and needs a major revamp
Works well There is a bug though, during a call I'm unable to hear the other person unless I put it on speaker or use headphones. And if the app is minimized, I can't hear other person what so ever. I'm using a Galaxy Note 5, running 6.0.1 Hope it's fixed soon :)
Great app but lacks some things. Can you please add support for Rotation locking? Because each time I call someone it rotates in to landscape mode which is really annoying. Also could you please update the design of the app. Everything else is great about the app in my opinion besides those two issues currently face. Thanks :)
