Nextplus lets you stay in touch with people around the world without giving out your real number. With Nextplus you'll get:
- A free US Phone number so friends can call & text you (you pick the area code)
- Free texting (SMS, MMS + group chat) to any US or Canadian mobile number
- Free inbound phone calls
- Toll-free calling from anywhere in the world with no restrictions!
- Inexpensive outbound phone calls
- Works great over WiFi so you don’t even need a 3G/4G connection.
- No contracts, no “surprise” costs.
HOW IT WORKS
Unlike other app-to-app messengers, we let you call and text ANY phone number!
Nextplus works across all your devices so you'll never miss a message. All you need is WiFi - no 3G/4G connection required!
Your friend’s phone company charges us small fees to deliver texts and calls on their networks. Rather than force you to pay, we let you view a few banner ads or watch a quick video. If you choose, you can pay a buck or two and make those ads disappear. The choice is yours!

Ratings and Reviews
Does not work on newest iPad pro 11inch
I used to use this app all the time on my iPad Air 2 as my main phone number. I got a new iPad for Christmas and as soon as all my information and applications transferred over to the new one the app stopped working. I tried reinstalling many times and restarting my iPad. I tried using it over multiple different internet connections. But whenever i pressed the app a black screen showed up for a few seconds and then went back to the home screen. Other than that this app was very useful. There was a problem that the pictures wouldn’t send or get received but that may have been fixed already. Please let me know if this is a problem on your end or on mine.

Hello there Chungahoo,
Apologies for the trouble you are experiencing using the app. Please reach out to our support team at firstname.lastname@example.org, so we can troubleshoot this issue. Thank you for bringing this to our attention.
Changing the name doesn’t change The Horrible, Misleading, ignoring all requests for help..
Do not waste your time with an app that is filled with nothing but ads, more ads and then even more ads you’re forced to watch, then be brought to the App Store after watching as if you want to buy something from their advertisers, just to earn a wee bit of Credit to go towards making calls with this so called “free” calling/texting app. Even that might be tolerable, or maybe it would be worth buying a plan from them if they ever returned emails when you were in need of “support” from them, but don’t expect a response, or even an acknowledgment of any kind if you need to ask them for help with something. They can’t even bother with a “sorry we can’t help you with this” & after a month and a half and 5 or 6 emails even so much and pleading for help, they haven’t even attempted to pretend to give a crap. Like I said, worst app ever. Even more horrible than the app is their “Support”. I’m happy to send proof to anyone who doesn’t believe it. I’ve never been so screwed over by an app, of any category, ever.
Waste of energy, and time, and I’ve run out of patience, I don’t care to go out of my way to write bad reviews ever, I’d mostly say nothing at all but these people are pathetic and I must let them, and possible future App users, esp anyone who would buy anything from them. BEWARE.

Took away my number. Can’t even recover password
Love this app and had same number for years. I log in just about everyday or every other day. I haven’t received texts in a while so I open up the app and it asks me to log in. My login info is gone. I can’t recover my password either because it says account not found. The recent software update caused the app to log out and I guess my number got taken away. Going with google voice instead. Tired of this nonsense. Couldn’t even buy my number permanently like it mentions after requiring frequent logins because there was no good link to click on to do so. 1 Star. Give me the exact directions and to reclaim my number back to buy the number and I’ll gladly change my review to 5 star, otherwise it stays 1 Star. No way to contact customer service once your account gets deleted. You guys do want money right?
