Generally okay

I have tried countless second line apps for international calling and texting and by far this has the best service package ($10/number w/unlimited calling and texting for at least English speaking countries).

As other have mentioned, support is crap. I sent them an email, they responded 3 days later to tell them they were working on the bug. It took 3 months for them to fix it 😒. I understand bugs take time, but a time frame would have been great too, or at least an update on progress.

That being said, running into an issue where I am not getting any notifications from the app and am not expecting a fix anytime before fall. Otherwise, it does what I need it to do.

thanks for the detailed feed-back! Happy to hear that we are matching your requirements!
Regarding the delayed notifications, we have just done an upgrade of the servers this week to be able to process more transactions per seconds respond to the growth of our user base. Please let us know if that fixed your issue.


Bad customer service and doesn’t work (updated)

I tried to use the app in Austria. I paid for the $9.99 unlimited plan, and expected to to be able to make/receive calls/texts.
I received calls, but couldn’t call out AT ALL!!!

I tried to contact Ring4 customer support via email. I received one response asking me some questions, but then no responses after that to my repeated follow-up requests for help. I also tried to contact Ring4 through the app. No response.

I was very frustrated and had to request a refund from Apple.

I am very disappointed with Ring4’s service. The app/service makes a lot of promises but doesn’t deliver. Don’t be fooled like I was.


After a few days, the representative responded. He was very responsive and willing to solve the problems.

I can finally use the number and am happy with their service afterwards. I can see that they take customers’ comments seriously, that’s whyI decided to change my rating.

Developer Response

Dear Sfoz65,
sorry for your experience with the calls to Austria affecting some our numbers, the issue was coming from one of our providers, it was resolved couple of days ago and we replied to your ticket.
Can you please confirm that you received it?


Only basic txting and NO SUPPORT AT ALL

I use the app and it functions okay for plain texts, but you can’t send pictures at all, and most companies will not recognize it as a valid number. Also, there is NO SUPPORT WHATSOEVER - I have sent MULTIPLE messages to support for a locked transaction that was deducted from my bank account, but not credited to this application account - and have not received even one response yet.

If your number expires, all messages go with it - it zeros everything out associated to that phone number.

Due to the lack of support, and the number of options for services like this, I’m looking at considering my 20$ a wash and going elsewhere...consider it a lesson learned.
