Excellent call quality. Ads in free version are completely intolerable but the monthly cost for premium is very reasonable. I don't mind paying for good service and a locked in phone number. Have to say that lately, voice call reliability over 4g has been terrible. I don't think it's limited to just this app, though. More likely caused by carrier.

It seems like it would be nice, I'm just not sure if the full price would justify the poor performance of the phone I'm trying it on. And, I can tell it's the phone's poor performance and not the App itself. Not sure what a low-buget pre-pay phone might cost but if much more than $10 I need to think this over. I really just needed very occasional text and, rarely, calls.

Hey Corey, we want to reassure you that if you don't feel like paying for our service we also offer many ways to keep our app free such as watching a short ad or taking a survey to earn more calling mins. If there's anything else we can help you with, please don't hesitate to email us at reviews@pinger.com. We'd be happy to help.

App. is junk! They are the dregs of the dregs, hiding audio ads under banners so that you can't get to the volume to shut it off. On top of that, they increase the volume louder than what your phone setting are AND THEN, buffer the ad so that you continue to hear it even after you've closed out the app!!! You either sit there and continue hearing it or uninstall the app. Update 3-19-23: sos, ads continue even app is closed.
