• Fongo Mobile does not require any purchase to use our service.
• Use Fongo Mobile outside of Canada with an internet connection!
• If you're travelling abroad, avoid expensive long-distance and data roaming charges by connecting to WiFi before using Fongo Mobile to call or message. Once you're connected to WiFi, call to anywhere in Canada's 10 provinces, or call and message other Fongo users, for free. From anywhere in the world.


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.


• Supported devices: Supports Android (Lollipop OS 5.0 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).

I have been using this for 3 years now I never really had any issues with texting or calling. $17.99 a year for texting is so much better than how much the telcos are charging for the same thing. One suggestion that would make it even better is if it integrated with Google Assistant to be able to send text messages and call. I tried setting Fongo as the default calling app and it still tried to make a phone call with the stock phone app and there's no option to set this as default SMS app.

It would be 4 or 5 stars if it didn't lose its server settings every few days or weeks. I use it for my apartment buzzer to simultaneously ring with my wife. It randomly goes back to no call forwarding on its own which is incredibly inconvenient. It's very fickle to connection stability, but additionally the client tends to just lock up. Sometimes I'll call the buzzer and it won't ring no matter what. So I try to dial out to a number as a test and it completely locks up, can't be closed

I've used the app for 5 years now and it was great. That is until it started getting progressively worse over the last year. It's like every few weeks a feature is stripped from it. Even calling doesn't always work. Just recently they removed the ability to recieve Verification codes. Other texts work fine but you have to pay to get your code. It's obvious they're doing everything they can to make a penny off you. I would avoid this and get an app with texting included. I know I will.
