Textfree gives you 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—and 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. 

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.

With Textfree you get free SMS texting, 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!

Not many free texting apps let you choose 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.

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 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?

No phone? No Problem. Text free has you covered. Textfree turns your iPod or iPad into a phone, so you can text and call for free. Plus, calls sound great over Wi-Fi.

Pros and cons of Text Free: Texting App + SMS app for iPhone and iPad

Text Free: Texting App + SMS app good for

Great app altogether. Was very impressed with the calling feature as well. This is something I will be using often!
Works fantastic and easy to use. The only drawback so far as I see it is the fact that you have to earn air time minutes by viewing videos and downloads. Other than that...I recommend this download. I like it.
Tried a few others, but constantly having to change my # made me try Textfree. Best free texting app out there!
I love how you get to choose your phone number, choose your ringtone, text tone, and it has voicemail
I really like this app it is amazing I use it for work or play and it costs me nothing wish for more apps like this
This app is an awesome app it works super well totally recommend for texting if you want calling get another app cause my calling doesnt work well

Some bad moments

The app was good but my chard was charged when it said everything was free!!!
Everytime i use this thing, i think the person im talking to is ignorig me avoiding me for wtv, because i get no beep no alert and not even the red sign with a number on the app (notification) at all. So i go check like rlly? No messages? What? No wait who ever im talking to did answer me, like 3 mins after my text was sent but never do i get notifications, how would i know? Hate how i have to manually check i mean come on not even voice mails or emails doesnt make me check manually. Pls fix
I hate hate hate the hold to call feature because sometimes the app glitches and calls people I didnt mean to. Everything else is awesome, but just get rid of the holding down to call thing please.
OMG ITS AMAZE! I use an iPod and a phone its amazing on both! Suggestion: I use this when traveling a lot, and you make it so you can call from China or France or Australia. Love it tho! Amazing work!!
How can you fault something thats free and works 95% of the time? Yes, sometimes there is a robotic echo. Sometimes it wont let me answer a call. That is the most frustrating thing. But Im happy because its a free service and allows me to have a second number (which I would never use for business).
Works well with calling and texting. The ads get annoying though! Other then that, a great app to use!
