Free texting and free calling with Textfree gives you free text plus 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 Wi-Fi connection to keep you in touch with friends and family all over the globe—you can text now with features like group messaging, picture messaging, international texting & calling, emoji, stickers and voicemail, it’s the only messaging app you’ll ever need. All for free. YOU CAN’T BEAT THE ORIGINAL Textfree was the first free texting app in the app store. True story. Since 2009, Textfree has helped millions of people stay connected with friends and family. Since then, a lot of new and nifty features were added, but one thing’s always remained the same—Textfree is the fastest, most reliable and easiest to use texting app out there. Lots of other apps like textPlus, TextMe, Talkatone, and TextNow have come along since we launched, BUT Textfree is the original and we think still the best free texting app available. SEND UNLIMITED FREE TEXTS & REAL MMS PICTURE MESSAGES With Textfree you get free SMS texting, text now totally free and unlimited. And now, Textfree is the first free texting app 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! REAL PHONE NUMBER INCLUDED Not many free texting apps let you text now with 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. TEXT FREE WITH GROUP MESSAGES Textfree is the perfect free texting app for group messaging with all your contacts. You can create groups, leave groups, add participants and let everyone be part of the conversation. FREE CALLING Free calling has never been better. Textfree-to-Textfree calling and any incoming calls are always free. Outbound calling minutes are easy to earn or super cheap to buy. Who doesn’t love free calling?

  • Did not work for me

    By Smedleytwo
    This app did not work for me. I followed all of the directions and the texts seemed to send from my ipad to my wife’s cell phone, but they were not received. I tried sending test messages to another phone. They also seemed to send, but were not received. I contacted the app support and was told the messages were received by their server and perhaps the two numbers to whom they were sent were “bad” numbers. I subsequently asked what they meant by “bad” numbers but received no reply. I then discovered on my own that certain cellular mobility companies were banning these “a2p” (app to text) messages, perhaps to avoid excessive spam messages, but also perhaps to protect more revenue for themselves. I am from Canada and vacationing in Florida, and it seems that my carrier may be one of these who ban such messages. My carrier is Zoomer Wireless, a division of Cityfone which is wholly owned by Rogers. So, if you are a customer of one of these companies, you may not want to waste your time with this app. Many other carriers probably have similar policies. I tried calling the customer support for Zoomer, but they seemed to know nothing about it (bs in my opinion). They wanted to blame it on too far from a cell tower, etc! I found the real reason via Google..... In 2017 Rogers announced it was banning a2p texts. Btw, a test to a Bell cellphone did work. Also, btw, the support for TextFree were also very unhelpful but must have known about this hit-or-miss issue but would rather choose to ignore it rather than deal with it. In short, do not waste your time with this, or similar app, if you run into this type of problem. It’s a business which only wants to make money as simply and cheaply as possible. No client focus, no ethics, just rake it in. Beware!
