About this app

Globfone allows you to send text messages (SMS) to your friends and family anywhere in the world for FREE. Also, the receiver does not need to have the Globfone App installed on their phone. You can also send and receive Globfone direct chat messages on Globfone.

- There will be Ads running on this App (this is how we keep it running)
- There is a daily limit to the number of SMS users can send.
- On some very rare occasions, we may be forced to use economic SMS routes, so you may not get delivery reports, and in some very unlikely instances, your SMS may not be delivered to the recipient.
- Globfone is not meant or created to be used as an emergency messaging system.

Globfone currently covers more than 90% of all international GSM networks, and we are looking to expand our coverage even more. Globfone messenger is part of a Free Online Phone Project- Globfone seeks to provide telecommunication services such as SMS and International calls to users across the globe for free.

The Globfone mobile app does not support international calls. To make international calls, please visit our website from the app. Please note that your device requires a WebRTC support to be able to make free video calls.

Globfone is a small team of passionate experts managing a massive project in the form of Globfone messenger. We would appreciate your positive comments and suggestion to continue to improve this Globfone.

From my experience, this app simply does not work. SMSs do not go through and without a message sent/failed indicator or a delivery report of any kind, there is no way of immediately knowing whether or not messages have reached the intended recipient. Typed messages also remain in the text editor even after tapping Send. In short, there's still a lot of work required before this app comes anywhere close to delivering on it's promise.

Their website is great for making calls, but SMS, both the website and the app do not play nicely with all carriers. I have Republic wireless, and my very first text was a test message to myself. It did not go through, and nothing in the app told me that it didn't. The GlobFone website is great for making calls, but the i-Trends app only only handles the text aspect of GlobFone which does not work right, Also if you read i-Trend's privacy policy it is downright scary. It actually mentions that it will save the CONTENT of your messages. So why 2 stars for an app that doesn't work? I like the company and their web-based phone calls, and I do look forward to a WORKING app from them, but this version is not it.

Jeff, thank you for your feedback. You're right that not all SMS go through. Please understand that we offer this service for free and we have very little funds to manage quality of SMS delivery. In fact, choosing economy SMS routes we're not receiving delivery reports, so we simply don't know if provider is fair with us.

App won't access mic to make calls each time U use it, useless otherwise. Trued in friends Samsung phone and same mic access issue. What to do? App settins do not show security settins requiring permissions for mic, only contacts.

This mobile app doesn't support calls what is written in app description. However there is, inside an app, a web "iframe" where users can browse our webpage. Some of them (some smartphones) can even make calls but it depends from many small details (WebRTC support) on the way.
