I am using fongo for 4 years now and finally convinced my wife's to port her number. From paying $180 per month to $37 taxes in per month is a lot of savings. No contract and we can really afford to buy new phones with the money we saves. If you guys are planning to use fongo, I suggest using an Iphone as they are more stable.
I am new to Fongo but so far I am pleased with their service. Calls have been good for me so far using wifi and i purchased the SMS service which also seems fast and reliable. There are less ads then similar apps and with Fongo you receive an actual local Canadian number. The only negative is no MMS service right now which is not a deal breaker for me but would be a nice feature to have. Hopefully this feature will be addef in the future, keep up the good work Team Fongo. 👍
Been using for yrs I have a $10 500mb data plan & i get 1000 Fongo minutes through that! This doesn't include minutes used on wifi either! Through my cellphone carrier that would cost me double for 1000 long minutes AND it wouldn't include long distance like it does through Fongo! Ive been using this as my long distance provider for years as it is more cost effective :) connection isn't as clear or reliable, but definitely worth the price. Haven't used the txting part but just bc i cant find info on data requirements.
You get what you pay for. Calling quality is okay on LTE. Not reliable, though. I miss a lot of texts, which I don't understand. It seems like some of the longer ones just don't come in. That upsets me because texting is something I paid extra for. Voicemail messages sometimes show up. How can it work sometimes? I'd understand always, or even never. Sometimes?
App looks half a decade out of date. UI needs a complete overhaul to follow new design guidelines. Audio quality is very inconsistent and randomly becomes unusably choppy even with both parties on fast connections and modern devices.
The quality of the call can be sketchy depending of your connection, but you canfinally be free of the monster mobile plans. Fongo paired with a tablet data plan from Virgin is a pretty good deal. (Ps. I dont work for any of them)
Thank you everyone for the feedback and comments, it helps us make Fongo better.
