Pinger Textfree: Free Texting, Free Calling App

By Pinger, Inc.

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Textfree Pinger is the free messenger that 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, emoji, stickers and voicemail, it’s the only messaging app you’ll ever need. All for free.

Not many free texting apps give you a real 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.

With Textfree you get free SMS texting plus calling, totally free and unlimited. And now, Text free is the first free texting app enabled with real MMS picture messaging. That means you can even send picture messages to all your friends, even if they don’t have Textfree!

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?

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.

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 even better over WiFi.

• Texting and calling are free back to the US and Canada from anywhere in the world when you have a data connection or WiFi

• Use Textfree as a free second phone line
• Text free is the first free texting app to let users send and receive real MMS picture messages, just like the pricy carriers.
• Real MMS picture messaging works with nearly all other carriers (T-Mobile coming soon). If you try and send or receive a picture message with a T-Mobile user, it might not go through (yet).
• Block numbers, if needed
• Log in securely from any device

• Want some light reading? Our terms of service are here:

• Emergency calls are not supported
• Like many free texting apps, Textfree is ad-supported, so you will see ads from time to time.
• When roaming, additional carrier data charges may apply. Contact your carrier for details.
• If your contacts aren’t on Textfree, they might have to pay regular carrier charges for texts and pictures. If that’s the case, be a good friend and tell them about Textfree.

Customer Reviews

Free but unreliable

I've used this app for years now, and they make changes and sometimes make improvements with each new version. Honestly though, I consider it to be unreliable. Sometimes I don't receive texts, and sometimes I can't send them. I love that it is free, and I can get a totally separate text number, but I only use it for and not-very-important texting. The ads are not too intrusive. One thing that I do love is the included web interface. I can sit at my computer and text with lots of different people at the same time using the same number that I would on my phone. That's really powerful and useful to me.

Works great!

I downloaded the app to my iPod mainly to use the texting feature. It has worked great for over 2 months now. If you are looking for a texting APP you should definitely give it a try. There is also a Phone feature for making calls. I used the phone 1 time and it did work but i have not needed it again. Again, give it a try, it works great for texting and there is a ton of emojis to pick from

Great App, One Huge Thumb Down on New Update

First off let me say that I love this app. It works great, is pretty reliable and has a nice look, especially since the update. Everything about this new update is awesome!!! Some things I like in particular is the new look, especially that the wallpaper is more faded instead of solid.

Great Job guys! 5 stars from me :D

I do have one complaint: I don't like that the emoji symbols (like :) :/ :( ;) ect, especially :/ ) automatically transform into actual emoji faces... I'd much, much rather have the option myself. Please get rid of the automatic feature.

(Also I noticed some people had crashing issues, and since I have a newer device I don't have that problem, but you should fix it for someone else)
