May not work with SMS shortcode services. No MMS. Not for 911 emergency services. Works in US and Canada only. Not available in Puerto Rico.
+++HOW IT WORKS+++
• Calls forward to and use your phone line (and cellular minutes)
• Text messages do not use your phone's SMS allowance
• Use credits to buy various types of Burners and extensions to Burners
• Burners can be extended, but only prior to their expiration.
• When you burn a number, it goes out of service and is deleted from your phone immediately.
• Burner numbers cannot be recovered.
• Burner numbers do not support MMS.
• Not for 911 or emergency calls.
In addition to your free sample burner, you can buy credits to create different types of Burner numbers.
Cost of credits:
• 3 Credits = $1.99
• 8 Credits = $4.99
• 15 Credits = $7.99
• 25 Credits = $11.99
You can use these credits to create new Burners, or extend existing ones so they don’t expire.
You may also purchase a Subscription Burner that gives you a number with unlimited texts and minutes, in addition to the ability to swap phone numbers.
• $4.99 / month
• Payment will be charged to iTunes Account at confirmation of purchase
• Subscription automatically renews unless auto-renew is turned off at least 24-hours before the end of the current period
• Account will be charged for renewal within 24-hours prior to the end of the current period, and identify the cost of the renewal
• Subscriptions may be managed by the user and auto-renewal may be turned off by going to the user's Account Settings after purchase
• No cancellation of the current subscription is allowed during active subscription period
What's New in Version 2.1.13
Does what I want it to do
So far so good. I noticed that when I purchase credits it doesn't automatically show the credits that I purchased. So with that said if you could update your next update showing a receipt of your purchase on your homepage that would be great. Also I'll like the option to possibly chat live with a support team. But that's not necessary if an email can get an immediate response. I really enjoyed the app but I get confused on the credits that I purchase. For example I started out with three credits and used all my minutes for phone calls but no text I mean we purchased eight more credits for 4.99 it took me resetting my phone and resetting the app to show that I had those credits available. But in your defense I will say that I am very new to this so I am still figuring out the program so I don't fully understand how to work it I'm about 70% there. The 30% left could answer the questions that I just asked you but all in all I like it and thank you and I look forward to the update
The best from the rest
I looked and tried all other services like it . They were either super expensive and gave you very little "credits " or just didn't offer the all in one as Burner app has . Burner app lets u text and call with a burner number and keep it active ! It truly is very affordable and generous . One this i would like is a "blocking blacklist " a number option
Works but glitchy.
I wrote a properly punctuated review but it got deleted.
Cannot hear callers or the hang up by the time I get thru all the prompts. I end up calling them back. Choosing a contact to text, app thinks the name is the number and tells me this is an invalid number, rather than recognizing the nber associated with that contact.
Says I have two messages when i have deleted all the messages.
Not truly anonymous due to association w Apple ID.
Otherwise, cool and affordable concept.
