I like this app alot. I think it's a great app especially for those who are struggling financially. Or students in college. When I had my other phone the app worked alot better. Now that I have a different Android, I have experienced calls constantly dropping, ads popping up in the middle of a phone call and the call will end. I know it's not this phone because I had another Android and it does the same thing. Please fix these issues please. Thank you.

Sends my pictures hours later. Recipients are confused, I'm embarrassed. It's just a big mess. Notifications and incoming calls don't notify most of the time. Full page ad blocks what I'm doing and sometimes its difficult to figure out how to get it off. 1/3 page ads are very common and also very annoying. I'm going to try another ap. Update 5/8/23 I don't use this app very much anymore, but it still is very unpredictable and unreliable, especially when sending and receiving pics.

This app use to be great. Then they updated it to make more money. The ads have tripled, and it seems to take texts longer than it use to. I also recently bought 100 minutes to try it out, and every. Single. Call. Ends at 32 seconds. That means Im getting around half the amount of time I should be because it rounds every one of those calls up to cost a minute. I cant use it to make any kind of substantial call and ripped off. Really disappointed in what you've done to it app developers.
