Textfree gives you a real US phone number so you can text or call anyone, even if they don’t have the app. Textfree uses your data or Wi-Fi connection to keep you in touch with friends and family all over the globe—and with features like group messaging, picture messaging, international texting & calling, emoji, stickers and voicemail, it’s the only messaging app you’ll ever need. All for free.  YOU CAN’T BEAT THE ORIGINAL Textfree was the first free texting app in the app store. True story. Since 2009, Textfree has helped millions of people stay connected with friends and family. Since then, a lot of new and nifty features were added, but one thing’s always remained the same—Textfree is the fastest, most reliable and easiest to use texting app out there. SEND UNLIMITED FREE TEXTS & REAL MMS PICTURE MESSAGES With Textfree you get free SMS texting, totally free and unlimited. And now, Textfree is the first free texting app enabled with real MMS picture messaging just like a carrier phone – no strange looking links. That means you can send picture messages to all your friends, even if they don’t have Textfree! REAL PHONE NUMBER INCLUDED Not many free texting apps let you choose a real phone number. But having your own local phone number means you can call your grandma’s landline, order a pizza, SMS any number, and of course, hit up all your friends, even if they don’t have a smartphone. TEXT FREE WITH GROUP MESSAGES Textfree is the perfect free texting app for group messaging with all your contacts. You can create groups, leave groups, add participants and let everyone be part of the conversation. FREE CALLING  Free calling has never been better. Textfree-to-Textfree calling and any incoming calls are always free. Outbound calling minutes are easy to earn or super cheap to buy. Who doesn’t love free calling?

  • It’s good

    By Doubletaps
    I’m glad I get to call on this app because I don’t get to call or text people if I didn’t have this app so this app is goo and thank u
  • Number changes every few seconds.

    By The Imprimatur
    The number assigned changes every few seconds. Useless. Why does it even ask you to pick one if it won’t save it?
  • Works but the pop-up ad kill it

    By MichaelSF415
    The app works well and the texts seem to send and receive quick. I don’t mind the in screen ads but can’t stand the one that redirects into safari and destroys the experience. Needless to say there is no such thing as an Amazon.com membership rewards free gift of iPhone X, 1000 dollar amazon gc, or a Samsung S8 and it’s super annoying. Hope they fix this soon because if this isn’t resolved I will delete and keep trying one of the alternate apps.
  • Best app

  • Textfree

    By CLASSIFIED-Eyes only
    I grow tired of the constant updates and overbearing advertisements. Data is not free. Build a quality product and leave it so. They added pop up ads - which have become overly annoying. This used to be a good app but alas it is no longer.
  • Hope the new update works

    Can’t even finish texting when an Amazon pop up pops up saying I won like 2-3 in one text. Please fix it
  • Not going so well

    By Catlover6435
    This app needs A LOT of improvement. The calls are not so good, many people tell me they can hear their voices echo on the other side. Also, recently I have been having problems with just getting into the app. It keeps kicking me out of the app and when I'm texting it freezes up and kicks me out. But, overall it's a pretty good texting app considering it's free.

  • Good, but AD Infested

    By MasterOfTheTiger
    This is a great app. I use it on my iPod, my tablet and my computer. I do not own a phone, so this works great. But there is a cost, this app has an advertisement around every corner. They put them in line with the different chat rooms (they don’t look very different) and as banner ads. When you are not using your keyboard on the app, it displays a huge square AD there. When you are typing, a banner AD is displayed above the keyboard. I do not mind having ADs in the app, but these are put everywhere and make it look very cluttered. On the desktop version (pinger.com/textfree) there is a couple ADs to the side, by they are non intrusive. This is a great app, but there is a lot of junk to go with it.
  • Works well
