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?
Simple, Consolidated, Cheap Its a great app. ported my number from my previous carrier in less than a week. The only complaint I have is how the messaging screen loads, its like it has to refresh all your contacts photos, its just odd. Overall its worth it for the huge savings.
Missing incoming texts I miss about 25% of all incoming texts now, co-worker having the same issue. Service has gone downhill recently. They used to be great but now I can no longer recommend them
Problem with incoming calls I recently activated a new data plan. I then spent $25 porting my number to Fongo and paid for texting. With Wi-Fi, incoming calls are no problem whether I'm inside the app, browsing the web or in lock screen mode. However, when I'm using data, Fongo only works when I'm inside the app! I can still browse and use other apps. I notified the tech support after trying out their fixes for problem incoming calls. Their reply to me was if Fongo is running in the background, "it should be fine". Wow, thanks.
Not Reliable I am not able to receive the calls which means it is not reliable enough. It does not mater if I am on WiFi or 3G data. Just a question if this app is developed for outgoing calls not incoming ones. Am I correct?
Thank you everyone for the feedback and comments, it helps us make Fongo better.
