This app constantly opens the speakerphone and a "shark air purifier" commercial plays over and over and over on high volume constantly. There is no way to mute it. There is no way to skip the ad. The only way to stop it is by unlocking your phone and closing the app. Phone calls only last about 30 seconds. Maybe a minute before they disconnect. Texting works well.

Hey, although ads help us keep TextFree free, we certainly don't want them to negatively impact your experience while using TextFree. If you could please email us screenshots and/or screen recordings of any troublesome ads you've run into at reviews@pinger.com, we'll be sure to check them out for you.

The paid version is ok for texting only. Calls NEVER worked for me even after reaching out to support twice. Downgraded to free version and it's almost unusable. Texting works fine, but the INTRUSIVE ads and pop-ups are so prolific it's impossible to have a good experience. Now there's a video for an air purifier that plays with sound on and no way to turn it off anywhere. They also raised the price for adfree to 10$ a month. Might as well get a cell phone for that price. Insanity.

Fantastic App, Especially if you Travel Internationally. I originally discovered this app while on a deployment in Iraq. It allows you to set an actual phone number to a local area code of YOUR choosing. That way, you can be CALLED, on a regular USA phone, as long as you have either a Wi-Fi connection or Data capability on your mobile device. I've been using this app more than ten years and will continue to do so. It appears I'm about to be offered another contract deployment job. 73
