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.
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.
REAL PHONE NUMBER INCLUDED

What's New in Version 8.1.4
- Minor bug fix
Pinger apps come and go
The big problem with Pinger is the confusing overlapping names of their apps and the Pinger apps vs. the TextFree apps. They come and go and customer service is useless. If they answer they don't read your question and ask what your problem is. I say this from 4 years of experience with many of their apps on different devices.
Their apps are unique and offer the ability to text any phone capable of receiving a text without the recipient needing a Pinger app. It works fine with non-smart phones but will not work unless the number includes a 10 digit format. Forget signing up for free offers from companies that use 4,5 or 6 digits. Your banks won't work either. Pinger will not accept texts from those numbers either.
One fraudulent claim is that you can text any phone including landlines. Really. I'd like to see that claim proven.
Incoming calls are supposed to be free, mine have been deducted. When trying to get free minutes by watching videos I never get the minutes. Same goes for their holiday promotions. Those minutes never get applied either.
Just recently every time I send a picture it turns blurry. Also I've noticed that some of my pictures send out from my pinger number but others send through my email on the account depending on who it's sent to. It would be awesome for my pictures to send clearly and also through my Pinger number at all times. Other than that I love this app
This messaging app = sweeeet
It's like I have a real phone number from the carrier. Except FREE. I have no idea why the Verizon's and t-mobiles of the world are even in business with apps like this. Literally. Best. App. Ever. Download. It. Now.
Seriously, stop reading reviews. It's gold
