Textfree Ultra 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 WiFi connection to keep you in touch with friends and family all over the globe—and with features like group messaging, picture messaging, international calling & texting, and voicemail, it’s the only messaging app you’ll ever need. All for free.

Having your own local phone number means you can call your grandma’s landline, order a pizza, and of course, hit up all your friends, even if they don’t have a smartphone.

You guessed it; texting is totally free and unlimited, even picture messages!

Textfree is perfect for group messaging with all your contacts. You can create groups, leave groups, add participants and let everyone be part of the conversation.

Textfree-to-Textfree calling and any incoming calls are always free. Outbound calling minutes are easy to earn or super cheap to buy. You can also set up your own custom voicemail.

No phone? No Problem. Textfree turns your desktop, iPad, or iPod touch into a free phone.

Pinger. Is. Awesome!! Where do i begin?!?! (Sorry, if you're a grammar natzi, ya might wanna stop reading this now) well to start off, I love pinger! Great quality in picture messages! Yes, you can send picture messages!! This is an awesome texting app because you can have as many numbers as you want, COMPLETELY FREE!! No phone bill of any kind!! And they give you 10 free minutes at the very beginning! You CAN buy minutes, but you don't HAVE to. Another way to earn FReE minutes, is you can watch 1 minute ads! And normally get 1-3 free minutes per ad. The ppl that keep pinger going are AWESOME!! Are you looking for a 5-star texting app, no spam? Well then you can stop looking RIGHT NOW!! Pinger is awesome. Someone I know had pinger, said it was great. Then I got an iPod, and found out that it IS great. It is SO easy to maneuver! Not complicated at all! I. Love. It. Get this app!!!!!!!!!! :D


I've had this app ever since I got my iPod touch, I can't seem to get another app because I'm so attached to text free! I usually switch off between textfree and pinger because they are they are the same thing and idk I'm weird like that. But it's been really frustrating because everytime I use emojies it comes out as this little star to the person I'm texting. I would LOVE it if you came up with an update to let us use emojies. This would be great because I know other people would like this update as well including my friends and my sister. I hope you take this into consideration and make textfree and pinger even better than they already are!


I love this app so much, and it is almost absolutely perfect! The one thing that keeps this from being 5 star quality, is that you can't send emojis. I know it isn't a big deal, but emojis just makes texting better! And almost everyone uses them. So it would be really helpful and kind of you guys to add this onto your next update, because I know that there are many people who would stop using this app for the small little reason. Also I know that lots of people would love to use emojis as they are texting with someone. Thank you for taking that time to read this, and creating this amazing app!!! 👏💕
