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.
• Questions or need help configuring your device? Tap Support on the Account screen.
• Have an idea how to improve Fongo? Tap Feedback on the Account screen.

Ratings and Reviews
Horrible. Constantly missing calls
Do not rely solely on this app for your phone calls. A lot of our incoming phone calls will not ring. Then a notification pops up saying there was a missed call.
Works great but looks.... ugly
Ok.... this app allows me to run a 15 dollar data only plan which saves tons of $$$$!
BUT, I just want to ask, When Will the UI get an Update?? It looks so ugly and it’s a Pain to Look at.
This is a great app and highly recommended.
