Update too many adds it's annoying. I realize they are necessary in order for free features to remain free however, the app often does that page shift as it's loading more content that's conveniently timed for & located right where you need to tap to carry out the function you're trying to do. That said it actually is a decent app. I didn't use it for a considerable amount of time & I did not lose my number. It's a good app but the ads could be toned back IMHO. Added 2 stars as it is free

I've used this app as my primary number to text/call for over 10 years. I've only used free version. It's been great until last year. I stay bc I'm hoping they will fix the issues. Here are some tips: check ur texts after a couple hours, to make sure they went through. Go to "calls" to see if u missed any. Often, my phone doesn't ring. Watch the videos to get credits for calls. Toggle from mes.'s to offers a few x' when u get spinning wheel. Not all site's verification codes work when sent.

I use this app because my parents don't want to have to pay for another phone line (our carrier is Verizon so it's really expensive). At first this app worked quite well for the first two years or so. Recently starting last year, it's difficult for my messages to send and even if they do send, sometimes the receiver can't see it. In addition, some parts of long texts can't be seen from this side, and they started making me pay for calls (??). Overall pretty crappy and works only 20% of the time.
