Text Free: Texting App + SMS
By Pinger, Inc.
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Textfree 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 Wi-Fi connection to keep you in touch with friends and family all over the globe—and with features like group messaging, picture messaging, international texting & calling, emoji, stickers and voicemail, it’s the only messaging app you’ll ever need. All for free.
YOU CAN’T BEAT THE ORIGINAL
Textfree was the first free texting app in the app store. True story. Since 2009, Textfree has helped millions of people stay connected with friends and family. Since then, a lot of new and nifty features were added, but one thing’s always remained the same—Textfree is the fastest, most reliable and easiest to use texting app out there.
SEND UNLIMITED FREE TEXTS & REAL MMS PICTURE MESSAGES
With Textfree you get free SMS texting, totally free and unlimited. And now, Textfree is the first free texting app enabled with real MMS picture messaging just like a carrier phone – no strange looking links. That means you can send picture messages to all your friends, even if they don’t have Textfree!
REAL PHONE NUMBER INCLUDED
Not many free texting apps let you choose a real phone number. But having your own local phone number means you can call your grandma’s landline, order a pizza, SMS any number, and of course, hit up all your friends, even if they don’t have a smartphone.
TEXT FREE WITH GROUP MESSAGES
Textfree is the perfect free texting app for group messaging with all your contacts. You can create groups, leave groups, add participants and let everyone be part of the conversation.
Free calling has never been better. Textfree-to-Textfree calling and any incoming calls are always free. Outbound calling minutes are easy to earn or super cheap to buy. Who doesn’t love free calling?
TURN ANY DEVICE INTO A PHONE
No phone? No Problem. Text free has you covered. Textfree turns your iPod or iPad into a phone, so you can text and call for free. Plus, calls sound great over Wi-Fi.

I’ve used this app for quite some time over different versions of the iPhone. Overall, I am happy with it and would recommend it. A couple improvements that I think would be great to see. First, some additional ringtones. The current ones sound a bit outdated, like ones that were on my Motorola Razr back in the day. Second, I understand this app is supported by ads but it would be neat to see them less intrusive. By this I mean it would be helpful if the ads did not become a larger size once you click send on a message. If you’re having a conversation and sending multiple messages back and forth, the larger ads get annoying and do get in the way. I would have no issue with the banner size ads at the bottom (like the size when you are typing out a message before pushing send).
No is free but this is close
I’m updating my review sorry to say it’s gone down to 3 stars from 5 because phone calls are useless now. I get calls but can’t hear what the other is saying most of the time and if we do hear each other it echos so I had to put on it on auto text reply.
I've been using this app for over a year as a second line and text. No nothing is free but to sit through some short videos is not hard to collect minutes for outgoing calls texting is totally free. I won’t grip about the ads I know those are needed but they do tend to get in the way while texting.
Two little things
This app is the best. I just wish that you could get a little icon or something that shows the message successfuly sent. Also the Ads above the keyboard are pretty annoying if they're tall (Can barley see the conversation) Thats small for what a great service this is.
