HOW WE MAKE FONGO DISRUPTIVE
Fongo is disrupting the mobile communications world with one simple concept: Free. We make use of advances in technology, an innovative business model and word-of-mouth marketing, and pass the savings on to you (so tell your friends!). Our revenue comes from optional add-on features, pre-paid worldwide calling credits, and in-app ads.
FONGO IS NEW
Hundreds of thousands of Canadians are already using our mobile service. We're growing incredibly fast as more and more people discover they no longer have to pay expensive mobile phone bills. You don't need to cancel your current mobile contract to try Fongo, just add the free app to your phone and start calling and messaging for free. You be the judge.
USE FONGO OUTSIDE OF CANADA
If you're travelling abroad, avoid expensive long-distance and data roaming charges by connecting to WiFi before using Fongo to call or message. Once you're connected to WiFi, call back to any of our Free Calling Cities, or call and message other Fongo users, for free. From anywhere in the world.
FONGO DATA USAGE
When you're connected on a call, Fongo uses 0.5 MB of data per minute so a 500 MB data plan will get you 1000 minutes of talk time. If you're calling on WiFi, you can pretty much talk forever. When you're not on a call, Fongo uses a minimal amount of data to listen for incoming calls.
• Supported devices: iPhone (iOS 8.0+, iPhone 4s+), iPod touch (iOS 8.0+, Generation 5+) or iPad (iOS 8.0+, iPad 2+)
• To use Fongo you must be connected to a 3G, 4G, LTE or WiFi data connection and you must create a Fongo account. If your data signal strength is weak or your connection speed is slow, this app may not function properly.
• If you disable notifications, you will not receive incoming calls.

*Fongo uses WiFi or your data plan to make and receive calls and send and receive messages. Data and international data roaming charges may apply. See www.fongo.com/calling/free/ for a complete list of Free Calling Cities. 911 terms and limitations can be found at www.fongo.com/legal/911/.

The core of this app (and service) is perfect.
With some work in features and general user interface, this app can (and will) replace costly, traditional and archaic phone service(s).
Nice work dudes & dudettes.
This calling and messaging app works phenomenally well. I can not tell the difference between my regular cell service and Fongo’s over wifi. It works so well that I cancelled with my cell provider and got just a data plan instead. I then ported my number to Fongo and that was seamless as well. Fongo, my only suggestion is to update the look and feel of the app. For example, having to click on a drop down menu to toggle between calls, voicemail, messages and history is annoying and confusing. You should have some nice looking buttons at the bottom or top of the screen to access those such things mentioned.
