Make free calls with a real US phone number. Textfree Voice is ideal for calling because it comes pre-loaded with 60 free calling minutes that can be used to call anyone in the U.S., Canada or Mexico. After that, outbound calling minutes are free to earn or super cheap to buy. Plus, incoming calls and text messages are always free. Who doesn’t love free calling?


Based on the original Textfree app, Textfree Voice is the best way to call with friends and family. Textfree Voice lets you set up multiple custom voicemail greetings for those times when you miss a call. If you plan to head out of town (or maybe you just don’t want to be bothered) you can send all your calls to voicemail.


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.


No phone? No Problem. Textfree Voice has you covered. Textfree Voice turns your iPad or old iPhone into a phone, so you can call and text for free. Plus, calls sound great over Wi-Fi.


To make sure you know it’s Textfree Voice ringing when someone calls, we’ve included tons of unique ringtones for you to choose from – you can even set up different tones based on who’s calling.


With Textfree Voice you get free SMS texting plus calling, totally free and unlimited. And now, Textfree Voice is 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 Voice!

I tried nearly a I half-dozen different services like text free. By that I mean the different companies that offer voice and texting services. I knew the dozen I think it was actually four or five over the last two years that whole process of shutting up with your email and setting up your phone to work with your system getting phone number and starting to use the new phone number with your family and friends and perhaps business associates and then if it doesn’t work out very well is an absolute mess!! Sure you put the learn to possibly look at the reviews. The trash out that that’s still not full pool. Typically finish up this review, after a little more than a full year of using Textfree and I personally have two numbers with Textfree and three other family members have Textfree I considerate absolutely unbelievably fantastic and bulletproof. The guys that run this thing have really put a lot into it. All I can say is that we love it. Oh and by the way 100 minutes for a couple of bucks, well are you kidding. I hope this year on forever. Thanks guys, Michael And family and friends

Hi Michael, thank you so much! Nothing makes us happier than hearing you and your family are happy with Textfree :)!

the ONLY OG Legit one


the ONLY OG Legit second line/texting app that has always been legit. no bs stickers or annoying things, no crazy awful signup, has almost always worked for me since the beginning(which for me was when I discovered it probably like six years ago)... and the texting has always worked it was only the voice that at first you know maybe sometimes had issues but now it works solid.
i have several lines, on a couple phones and The only one I've ever recommend it to friends I also have a paid subscription to a few, and the minutes are so cheap that it's like silly not to get it as a back up it has saved me many a times throughout the years and has always come through I really appreciate it. thanks somebody else mentioned above that it makes sense to use it for like craigslist and privacy concerns as well as whatever else you can dream up and that's true too anyway also I think I've written one other review in my entire life of these apps so that's saying something. THANKS PINGGUYS/TEXTFREE RULES haha..seriously.

Won't give it 1 star just because

Still Lonely

I have used this app for a few years and finally feel I should review it. It was great. You do get what you pay for and it didn't cost me anything so it was wonderful being able to text or make calls free. I didn't always get the free minutes the the tap joy offers but I had time to waste so no big deal. I never wanted to rate it but now that I am unable to use it anymore I will say this: It was great when it worked. Update after update changing the appearance and including stickers (causing some dialogs to be lost upon update) and everything else was frustrating but the whole "free" part made it easy to deal with. Now with the most recent updates I could not send pics and now I can't even send a text without closing the app and starting again a few times. Now that it has been updated beyond use I give it 3 stars to give it credit for when it worked. I would give it 0 stars for the performance over the past few weeks. Looking for a replacement app after rating. Disappointed.
