FONGO MOBILE INTERNET USAGE

When you're connected on a call, Fongo Mobile uses 0.5 MB per minute, so a 500 MB data plan will get you 1000 minutes of talk time. If you're calling on WiFi, you can call nearly for as long as you'd like. When you're not on a call, Fongo Mobile uses a minimal amount of data to listen for incoming calls.

IMPORTANT

• Supported devices: Supports Android (Nougat OS 7.0 and higher), Chrome OS
• Supported Wear OS devices: Wear OS 2.0 or higher
• To use Fongo Mobile, you must have an active internet connection (cellular data, WiFi, or wired) and you must create a Fongo Mobile account. If your data signal strength is weak or your connection speed is slow, this app may not function properly.
• Ensure that your WiFi network or cellular carrier supports VoIP (Voice Over Internet Protocol) traffic.
• If you disable notifications, you will not receive incoming calls.
• Questions or need help configuring your device? Tap Support on the Account screen.
• Have an idea how to improve Fongo Mobile? Tap Feedback on the Account screen.
• Using Fongo Mobile as a default dialer may interfere with dialing 911 emergency services. We recommend using the built-in phone calling app on your phone for 911 calls on Canadian mobile devices (no SIM plan required).

App stalls and hangs too often. Only one person can talk at a time. The other side will not receive my responses unless I wait about 1 second until he/she has completely stopped talking. It is quite annoying trying to have a fluent conversation like this. Skype is much better, by a very long shot, but does not offer a phone number in Canada. Good service, bad quality. Thanks anyway.

I've been using this app for about 5 years. Always had a newer Android phone that is kept up to date. When it works, it works well. However, it CONSTANTLY crashes. Calls will go straight to voicemail and there is no indication in the app. Calls will never connect - they'll just hang on connecting forever. Today I placed one call which was fine, but the second one never connected. I keep thinking it'll get better - but after 5 years, it never has.

Sometimes calls go straight to voicemail, sometimes it connects and immediately hangs up as a missed call, and sometimes the phone rings but it won't connect at all. If using it to receive confirmation texts, I always need to request them more than a half dozen times before I finally get them, if I do. Also, many places that require text confirmations to sign up won't accept Voip numbers. Definitely not reliable enough to replace a primary phone, as it hardly even functions as a secondary phone.
