Ratings and Reviews
Get this app if you have an iPod, iPad, or iPhone that has been shut off your provider. As for me, I have two iPods and an iPhone that has been shut off the provider. I linked all of them under the same account. I can text as (724) ***-**** and nobody knows that I don't actually have a phone!!! This app is perfect and has no flaws, unless you have absolutely no tolerances for ads. The ads only pop up at the bottom of your screen AFTER you send a message. It's not too bad. I usually can't stand ads, but this doesn't interfere with the quality of the app. You can also, if you double-text, click the little "x" in the corner of the ad to view the keyboard again. You get your notifications as always. Text free also can text you personally when you have updates or to remind you that if your phone number isn't used within a certain amount of time, it will be given to someone else. But anyone that uses this app usually uses it frequently and doesn't have the issue. It only happened to me a few years back when I only got the app to text my mom for a busy month, and right after that I didn't use it. I got a new number, with ease, and now I can use it any time I wish. You may also reserve your number for a small fee. For free you may record your own voicemail. You may also choose your own ringtone, and on Androids you can use your pre-installed ringtones on your device.
I recommend this app to anyone. Please download this app if the above criteria relates to you.

This is been a success story also a struggle story me as the reviewer have been using Textfree for over six years close to seven and when I had no way to have a phone service from my iPhone I was able to always have access to people calling me and having textWhich it being a American app I had no idea I’d be able to use it in Europe where I went and subsequently suffered a heart attack still having no phone service tax-free had allowed me to call and text my friends and family in the USA with no extra surcharge and really no problem this was a great thing now if this doesn’t come with the bells and whistles but it still was pretty forward thinking for time it came out it’s still one of the originals and one thing about it it’s stable sometime to glitches but it’s stable overall and I’ve still been able to use it we talking about six years of service that I use pretty much every day I am an original thank you tax-free you really helped me expand on so many things and yes I do have phone service now but I still use this as one of my secondaryNumbers one of the best apps ever invented because it works

Great free App
Best free app for texting for when you need another number. I hope that none of you ever have to have another number for the reasons that I have had to. The only complaint I have is the fact that you have to buy minutes and the cost but on the same token with that;
If someone tries to call the number you have the option to have a call go directly to voicemail, so if the Caller leaves a voicemail you can still get the communication, along with the ability of an automatic text response to let them know that you cannot receive telephone calls on that number and make them aware of that fact. So I still give it five stars despite the downfall of having to buy minutes. They give you some free minutes to start, and methods/other ways to gain free minutes IF you want to take the time to go through all of the surveys and marketing etc.
When I have used the actual calling function of the app, the quality has been great. So overall for being a free app I give it five thumbs up :-)
