I would give it five stars but.....

So this app has worked perfect for me while I’m living in Japan. I get calls from the states I can text everything goes through quickly I’m not sure why everyone else is complaining about lag I don’t experience any of it. I do however experience a very very annoying treat and I’m not sure if Talkatone is responsible for it or not. But I’m gonna blame them anyway because it is their app. Whenever I am texting someone my phone opens the App Store. Even if I close it it really opens it and it takes me to some dating site or something weird sometimes it says I’m in the wrong App Store. Which I assume means that I’m trying to get the American app Stor when I’m really in Japan not sure what that’s all about but even if I close out talk atone and reopen it and go back to texting it’s only a matter of seconds before the App Store starts opening up. And then it’s frustration time because you have to close both applications the App Store and Talkatone and then re-launch Talkatone to continue were you were texting only for a few minutes later to start the process all over again. Talk atone if you are listening to this review I love you guys I can even send you video of what I’m experiencing but something needs to be done because this is crap. Otherwise I am extremely happy I’ve even thought about buying the package to disable ads and my only worry is that it would not fix the App Store opening up.

Hands down the BEST VOIP app Great value, great service

My mobile phone stopped working and I needed a texting solution. After reviewing and trying several options, I couldn’t find an app that was free unless you were contacting someone else who was also a subscriber to the same app. Then I stumbled across Talkatone! The free version allows you to dial and speak to anyone on any number whether the subscribe to Talkatone or not. I loved it so much I upgraded it! Now for only $1.99 + $3.99 per month I have no ads (which were not intrusive at all anyway) for the $1.99 and a stable number, voice mail transcription, call forwarding and other great features. That’s less than $6.00 per month for a full-featured VOIP service with crystal clear calls, MMS texting, address book, unlimited domestic calling, voice mail and customizable options like ringtones etc. I just cannot stop being impressed. Even with the free version you get unlimited domestic calls and MMS. It puts Skype and so many other apps to shame. Download it and give it a try. You won’t be disappointed.

Four and a half stars!!

UPDATE: I’ve been using this app for years.. same phone number, no issues. Recently I found need for another 2nd phone number (hehe) and after trying out all the others and checking the subscription pricing.. I realize Talkatone is the best value too! I got lucky with my first number as I got in at the beginning when they offered one time fees!

I rounded up rather than down because people should know how wonderful this app is and how much it's simplified my carrier switches. With Talkatone I have been able to keep a set number where I can be reached. I can text and call and my credits usage seems to be nonexistent. I tried many many other apps and when I found this one I knew I had found a keeper. I spent the $10 (one time fee) to go ad free and it feels like a normal part of my phone. The only complaints I can find is the poor ring tone selection and that I wish voice calls were a bit louder.. All in all, it's exactly what I needed! Have recommended this app to many!
