They lost all my info and did not fix it
My app has been freezing for the past months and I’ve had this app number for over a year. Well I log out and uninstalled app and reinstalled to fix the problem and it always works. Well this time it erased all my numbers and call log and texts. And I am now unable to receive texts and calls but I can only make calls and send texts. Well that number was used for work purposes.... so now I’m out of work and money due to this problem; I don’t know any of their numbers by heart. I contacted customer service multiple times about the issue and they did not respond until over a day later. One representative named Chona replied only twice and I sent about six messages because it was urgent and I sent all the information she needed to fix the problem but she did not do it and it just switched me over to a Nother representative named Darlene. Darlene it also has not fixed the problem or reply to any of my messages except the intro message. So if you guys are OK with losing all your information and not being helped or able to retrieve it back then by all means this is the perfect app. But I have been a customer of over a couple years but then this happens and that is the type of customer service you get.
App got better!! A couple suggestions though.
Hi, I recently submitted suggestion for this app saying that I couldn’t login and that was true. But the app got a lot better I think, I was able to login it kept my previous account, although my number had expired because I was not able to login before. I got a new number and I use it for a lot of my friends, because I have an I pod touch and I cannot text a lot of my friends because they do not have an iPhone. This app really helped me a lot I can text a lot of my friends and I suggested to anyone service is not working anymore or they cannot text and maybe half an iPod touch like I do and I really liked it a lot, just be sure to use it every once in a while or else your number will expire like mine did. One suggestion though: be able to text people just by asking Siri to TextMe to this person. I would use Siri a lot in that way because my parents have strict rules on device time and a lot of my friends text me through TextMe it would be to be able to ask Siri to do it for me. Thanks!!!
If you like adds in face constantly :(
Tried this app for about 3.5 weeks and was rather disappointed actually. The texting is somewhat easy and likewise with calls but their constant in your face adds are annoying I had 2 fairly important missed phone calls and couldn't retrieve any messages from either. I also used my text me “free textme #” to validate another service I have... but the txt messages sent were “not available” to me unless I paid to upgrade for 1 week or longer! Maybe if they allowed me to have some real use for any amount of time firstly!! But sadly this will be the end with this app. Basically more time wasted with this more time and they failed to be reliable. So prepare yourself to “upgrade” and buy your “phone number” and mostly be prepared to be pestered endlessly to do so! Bottom line to textme developers- This is not the way to push sales or increase revenue. If you give a free txt and phone number at least give someone a chance by offering more to them as a trial or “free” features. And lastly “I don’t buy from anyone when pushed so hard or annoyed this much.
I’ve written multiple reviews regarding the Freetone/TextMe apps. It truly was the best free WiFi calling app on the market. But unfortunately, as with the others like it, the developers have chosen to be money greedy and have begun to charge for service. In fact I’ve noticed this trend going on with popular “Free” apps. First they develop a great product, then they put it on the market as freeware, then, once they get thousands of positive reviews, they change it to where you have to pay to use it, and they use the positive reviews as fuel to drive their sales, when in fact those reviews didn’t come from the paid version, but were from the free version. Oh well. Don’t get me wrong. Freetone is still an exceptional app and is worth the money presuming you’re in a position financially to pay for it. But I’m not, especially since there are other options out there that will remain free for life, like Google Voice. But I get it. AdMob only pays so much and TextMeNow is in this business to make money. I’m not mad at ya, just disappointed that the inevitable day has come so early. Best of luck to the success and growth of your company, TextMeNow, Inc. Cheers!
Limitation 500 text per month
As advertised, it says UNLIMITED TEXTING AND CALLING. After months of using this app, it was bought from another company and then asked to download a new application. Overall i have enjoyed the service. But the deal breaker for me is that i use it for work. Answering Advertisement and Responding to customers. This has stopped my ability to work. I attempted to pay 7.99 for unlimited everything and no ads. Reading the Terms and Conditions, the LIMITATIONS say that each user is allowed up to a total of 500 Text messages per month. This happened to be a busy month and now i have stopped communicating with customers for a few days thinking it was a service issue and then had to read closely to understand that they lied about the advertisement and i will be reporting this to apple development to hopefully helping to resolve this issue. Also. Having low bandwidth makes conversations choppy and hard to manage. Constantly running to near the router when getting a call.

I needed a second # so that when I was off the clock I could simply stop all the late and early AM calls from drivers needing dispatch throughout the night on nights I wasn’t on the clock. This gives me that. I simply turn off push notifications when I get off the clock and Boom... I’m not burdened by random semi drivers that hardly speak the same English I do calling at 3am and getting mad when I tell them to call the office main line because I’m off duty. It’d blow your mind if you knew how many drivers expect me to get out of bed and find them s load OFF the clock just to “do them a solid”... smh. Anyway his app is perfect if u need a work line u can disconnect yourself from after the work day. AND It texts, pic messages, and videos all to the same # as what they call. Sooo handy for BOL’s and invoices. 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼

So first off, in group chats it won’t let you change the name of a person or add it to your contacts, so if there’s several people in on thing it can get tricky. It’ll only let you change the “conversation title” whatever that means. Second, there is add everywhere. I can deal with them, but it can get annoying when you hit a few of them and it completely redirects you. THIRD, and this is by far my biggest issue, it limits your texts. Or at least my version does. I downloaded this app so I could talk to online friends on a RELIABLE platform, but it won’t let me send them messages. And, for every message you try to send, the staff will send you a link to their website saying something like, oh this is a security measure and you can remove it if you click here. The link takes you to their website, which is hard to navigate, and when you find the section about the security and not being able text, it’s general attitude is, “HA. Not my problem.
Worst text app I’ve tried
Skip this one, there’s nothing special about it compared to the other popular text apps. It’s only worse.
Half of my texts and calls don’t come through and the ones that do give me NO notification unless I open the app and check mailbox. Had a mini emergency situation a few days after I downloaded it and I wasn’t able to make any calls (still can’t after 2 weeks) either itS silent (no dialing or ringing) or it straight up won’t even attempt to call after press the green call button several times. Then you also get a bonus of it freezing and being SLOW. Glad I figured this out before I committed to this number and using it as my contact.
Also it’s ugly and cluttered looking
Great for call&text
I’ve used ALOT if not most of the texting apps offered due to living in a town with virtually no cell service. This app takes the place of cell and land lines. Until recently getting a job that required I had a landline set up, this was the only thing I used to receive and make calls from home. Most apps require you to watch videos or complete surveys, etc to earn credits to make calls. This app allows you to call anywhere without credits. I also don’t have complaints on glitches or not receiving calls/texts. Unlike most apps this app never seems to give me many problems like glitches or freezing up or running slow. I would recommend it to anyone that is looking for a VoIP App.
Great so far!

This app is so far working fine. My iPhone doesn’t have service, and I needed a way to contact my friends and parents. The thing is, the ads are driving me crazy! A lot of them are kind of weird.
The only bad experience I had with it was when I couldn’t log back in on a different device. Trying another way, I applied for a new number, but right afterwards, figured out that it had logged me back in! Don’t know what happened, but at least it saved me the trouble of having to tell everyone my new number.
It works perfectly fine, just like messages and it surprised me when I could text other people that didn’t have the app.
Overall great! But if you want to spend a few $$ a week, they can stop the ads and let u call for free.
