Changing my review to 3 stars because some of the needed features are only available via upgrade. $9.99/month for an internet phone is too, much. You should just get a Track phone for the same price. NOTE: This is a WiFi only phone... you have to be connected to WiFi in order for it to work, so while it may have some cell phone features, you have to be at home to use it.

Hey James, although TextFree works with a WiFi connection, you can also use a cellular network connection to use TextFree in or out the house. If you have any questions, let us know at reviews@pinger.com. We'd be happy to clarify anything for you.

The app has a simple, clean look, and is easy to figure out how to use. However, there are so many ads that the app is difficult to use. The sheer amount of lag (mainly from ads) makes the app virtually impossible to use for anything but texting. It lags so bad I physically cannot answer calls. Even opening the app takes at least 30 seconds to load, and trying to do something like texting takes even more time. Also, notifications don't always arrive, and when they do, they take a long time.

Hi Kai, We want to make sure TextFree is running as smoothly as possible for you, please send us any more info as well as a screen recording of any trouble with lag. As for notifications email an example message with the date/time you sent the text as well as the date/time it was delivered and you and your contacts numbers at reviews@pinger.com.

Don't bother upgrading for 9.99 to get verification calls. I tried using my textfree number for that reason a couple of times-at the exact time I was supposed to get a call, I'd get a text saying I needed to upgrade for that kind of service, which means they tried to call but textfree would block it. So I upgraded, so that way when I got the call, I could answer it. Fat lot of good that did! As soon as I tried it after paying, I don't even get a call-no notification, nothing! Scammers. Smh

Hi Ashley, as long as you have our subscription you should be able to get shortcodes with no problems. That being said some companies or apps will block our numbers because they don't support them. We recommend reaching out to this app or company to see if they will let the number through. If you need anything else email us at reviews@pinger.com.
