Comments and Reviews from users:

Robyn Wolcott: “Suddenly I stopped being able to see memes properly that somebody might send me! They're all coming in pixelated for some reason and I cannot view them properly. I've cleared my cache I've tried a few other things but they still come through pixelated. I also get a message about something to do with high resolution. I have not changed any of my settings so could somebody please give me some advice before I change to a different messaging app.” – 2/5 in Play Store

Arthur Silva: “This is not a great app for viewing old messages. Once you try to scroll back past 30 or so messages it pops up a "loading" window that stays up for quite some time as the system very slowly retrieves another 100 or so messages. It's also not very configurable. This app does seem to work well though for people who use the Verizon network and are having issues with other texting apps receiving MMS images that are extremely blurry. I've yet to encounter that problem with this app.” – 3/5 in Play Store

Shelly Hebert: “It's a pretty handy internet call/text app. I use it mainly for backup because my Spectrum service is disconnected. Works well providing I'm patched into wifi. Calls are clear and no missing texts. My only grip is, although there's a speakerphone feature it cuts in and out of speakerphone. But everything else works perfectly. Being it's a free service there are ads, but you're not bombarded with them like mainly other free text/call apps. (I'm taking a ⭐️ away becuz of the speakerphone issue)” – 4/5 in Play Store

Michael “Android” Kamarauskas: “"TextNow" is, by far, THE BEST for Text/Talk app out there!! ⭐️- It works even when your Wi-Fi connection is poor. ⭐️- The adds are few, and unobtrusive. ⭐️- It doesn't use that "Token", or "Point" system in order to make calls, so you're not stuck watching ads, or spinning wheels to be able to make calls. ⭐️- You get a REAL phone number. It's a REAL talking and texting app, and it's FREE!! ⭐️- Has customizable notification sounds, and conversation window themes and wallpapers.” – 5/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “I use this app because my parents don't want to have to pay for another phone line (our carrier is Verizon so it's really expensive). At first this app worked quite well for the first two years or so. Recently starting last year, it's difficult for my messages to send and even if they do send, sometimes the receiver can't see it. In addition, some parts of long texts can't be seen from this side, and they started making me pay for calls (??). Overall pretty crappy and works only 20% of the time.” – 2/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “I love all the different ways to get rid of the ads. I want to love this app, but it still needs a lot of work. It's very buggy, and here are some of the recurring ones: group chats do not sync well at all and when they do the individual messages are displayed very far apart and out of order, notifications for this app are turned on, but I do not get any, a lot of times messages do not send.” – 2/5 in Play Store

Trav Falin: “Update: I do not get any of my message notifications, I have to Open the app and check if I have any messages. It's a great second number to use but it definitely has it's flaws. The recent problem: It uses up a lot of data, a lot of battery life, and has more advertisements pop-ups then most other apps, you accidentally tap on a lot of advertisement when you rotate your screen” – 3/5 in Play Store

Dum Belle: “The absolute BEST textapp I've ever used! I have had this app for years, now! Fortunately, I've been able to keep this same number and account! Even through losing access to it, for months! I used it as my sole # back then. Aww, I really wish they saved or archived my missed messages. And saved my contacts. I lost a lot, when I lost access to the app! I'll never know what some messages sent from specific someone were said! Pics, messages.. ugh! I love saving the sentimental stuff.” – 5/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

Don J: “I'd usually give this app 5 starts, but the only major problem is glitches and bugs present in the app. Often times, it freezes my phone altogether and essentially makes it nonfunctional. Perhaps it's due to the overload of ads. Whenever I enter or exit a chat, or try to type or attach a document, the app glitches out due to some ad or message loading. Please take it easy on that. Otherwise, the features made available on Text Free are really useful.” – 3/5 in Play Store

Chelsea Taylor: “Everytime you end a phone call or exit a text convo, an ad vid pops up. Phone calls dropped almost every time after usually anywhere from a few seconds to a couple min. It tells you when you have a confirmation code texted to you but wont let you read it without paying an exhorbetant price. Oftentimes, it doesnt ring at all or only vibrates 1 time when you get a call, no matter what your volume settings are set as. After talking, YouTube is quiet unless I go to settings and force close Text Free” – 2/5 in Play Store

Thunderlips Joe: “This app has gotten better than when I first reviewed. Notifications are still spotty at times. ESPECIALLY for voicemails. Better than it was, still work to be done. *Response no idea why I cannot respond inline? The app was actually really solid on my note 8, upgraded to pixel 4 xl & notifications have been buggy from day 1 The facelift works/navigates well but notification lag is still very poor. I'll try a cache clear. But again it functions poorly on my pixel compared to my note” – 5/5 in Play Store

Sally Rose: “I've been using Google voice for over 10 years and have had no issues at all. Yup, nothing but good to say about this app. It has been by my side since I started my first business as a woman and minority. It's straight forward to use and while there's no annoying ads like all the competitors, voice makes up for that with some pretty cool features. But then, out of nowhere in 2024, I've been suddenly locked out of the Google account affiliated with my beloved Google voice. Help🥹” – 5/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

A Google user: “Worked great at first, now it sucks. Calls break up when I have full service, when I answer a call it wont have any sound so I end up hanging up on the person, the ringtone plays but won't let you answer the call (the screen doesnt pop up and give you the option to answer or deny the call, it's just your regular screen playing a ringtone). I also have to restart my phone everytime I use the app because it overrides the sound on my phone and mutes everything. Calls/texts to my regular number wont play a notification, cant get on pandora, etc. Every. Single. Time. Not sure how it all went down hill so fast when the app was working great at first. Only reason I'm not deleting the app yet is because it's free... But if these bugs don't get fixed soon I'll definitely be on the look for a new app..” – 2/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “It's better than any other I've used, but lately I've had problems. I almost only use it for texting. Recently it started sending duplicate texts frequently. Also sometimes out of order texts. Occasionally it will just say Not Delivered, but it gives no option to resend or copy or forward or anything that i can see. So you just retype the whole thing again and then it sends. Sometimes it also says not connected when it is. And it's tricky to get it to turn on sometimes. Ty 4 good free app tho!” – 4/5 in Play Store

Unfortunately, watching videos will not always actually reward points-- even if you are willing to spend the time to watch them, the app itself is so so on crediting points. I would not recommend this app until they fix these issues.” – 2/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

A Google user: “I have tried many second line apps. but this one here is great. Very simple, semi basic. Non-intrusive. Good options to customize calls, texts and voicemail. Ads are always a small banner at the bottom of the app, never taking the full screen or popping up like other ones do. This is by far the best second line app I tried and still using. Been a month and still going strong. I've read other reviews and their issues and never experienced any issues so far. Incompetence maybe?” – 5/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “I continue to use this app, although it's just TextNow with a slight difference. It has never cost me a dime! The ads never interrupt a phone call or prevent making the call after you press the call button. Wifi is easier than bathroom. If they have a bathroom, they have wifi. if you know where to look. This app solves alot of problems. If you use it once a month you don't lose your number. Also works well with sim cards. All the apps work this one is very reliable now.” – 5/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “Update: I woke next day, everything worked. No problems at all since. Not giving 5 stars yet, because I have no idea what caused it, and another similar app was working at same time on the same phone Earlier entry: Everything was working great. Then everything in the app stopped working completely. App diagnostics to clear airports and latency issues on both Verizon and Comcast networks. Everything else on the phone and in the house is working fine. Will update when app works again, if ever.” – 4/5 in Play Store

Kenny Guilfou: “It works fine, but don't sign up for any of the events unless you enjoy getting notifications all the time that are impossible to disable. EDIT: the issue with events was resolved. I updated my rating to reflect that. The only issue seems to just be with getting a recycled number that someone else may have used as a throwaway. This results in a fairly large number of spam calls. I don't fault the app for that, although some level of spam call filtering would be very much welcome.” – 5/5 in Play Store

Scrolling through messages is a nightmare, it's choppy and jumps all over the screen. It does what I need it to but I'd enjoy a better interface. For 4.99 a month I'd like to enjoy using the app instead of merely using it for necessity. And, yes I've uninstalled and reinstalled to ensure I'm on the latest version.” – 3/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “It's very good for what you need it for. I could do with a smaller subscription fee though. Otherwise all the bells and whistles are there. Update: 11/30/18 I use this app pretty frequently on my phone and since they have done some updating with it I must say it has been terrible. I'm very disappointed with the way the app has done a 180 for especially since I use it for business. It is rarely ever compatible with Bluetooth devices and if I'm somewhere with no signal, I never get any calls or texts although I can receive them with my phone. My customers complain they can't reach me so it's frustrating. Also there is some glitch that doesn't let me search a contact by phone number to text. It will not recognize and properly load the name I'm trying to text so I'll have to scroll in the feed to the last message I sent them in order to message them. I do not like what has come of this app at all especially since I'm paying a monthly fee. It's been over a year and I'm thinking I'll be changing to something more stable.” – 2/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

A Google user: “Reducing stars. Sudden increase in fee for no reason. Introduce portability for US number, then will think once again to give you my business. Until then adieu. ##### My review won't be long. In a few words, OnOff is a reliable and cost effective solution to have two or more numbers on the same device. Call transition from app to cellular network is flawless and seamless. Since it uses cellular minutes, its quality is as good as a call made using device sim card. Nothing is free in the world and $1.99 per US number is a steal deal compared to other similar products which charges $9.99 per number. Just one request to OnOff team, please allow us to port in our US number. And keep developing.” – 2/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “was disappointed when I received a call from an automated service that I signed up to get information from just to find out that when they eventually did call me I couldn't use the dial pad to input numbers.

Comments and Reviews from users:

A Google user: “This app is moderately functional. I find it drops calls often and the connection is poor. With the latest update, I am no longer able to listen to my voicemail. I can only read the transcript, which is always hilariously wrong. The text box for typing texts is really small also. It's important for me to have a separate number for my business, so I'll give the app that, as it does provide me with a second phone number.” – 2/5 in Play Store

Cooper Waldron: “Great, feature rich app, that leaves a lot to be desired. Has ability to record all calls, but only within the app, not if call is forwarded to another phone through the menu, or if call forwarding is turned on. If you have the menu enabled there's no option to leave a message. Often times contact updates don't show up between devices. If you're on a regular call on your phone and an openphone call comes in through the app it still rings loudly. And it constantly drops calls...constantly.” – 3/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “Pretty good. Good price for a new number. Lacking in some features you would expect from a phone app though. Biggest one for me being call blocking. Keep getting nuisance calls (not because of cloud sim), ability to block these numbers would be great. App itself looks a little dated, could do with some prettying up but not of much concern as long as it is functional. A pricing structure that would include a deal on more than one new number at a time might be a good way to go.” – 4/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “The UI is slightly unintuitive in some places, but this is the only criticism of this otherwise superb service. It is the only service I have found that works for receiving SMS (e.g. with one-time codes) from banks - and I tested more than a few. Very reliable, affordable numbers, works flawlessly. Keep up the good work!” – 4/5 in Play Store

Dylan Edwards: “I will adjust the score promptly when warranted in either direction, and will not be unfairly harsh. That said, I made it 2 taps in before the app became useless to me. I was prompted to to search ANY US area code. Unfortunately, every one of them came back as bad. I will note that upon getting the red error msg, the area code examples which appear IN RED (901 and 731) do work, and frankly that's why I am giving 2 stars rather than 1. But since I need a number in my area, it's unuseable.” – 2/5 in Play Store

Erick Saavedra: “Good features, but I wish the interface was better. Plus some bugs which made got with different app. When you dial a number you have to click again to confirm your call. Instead of hearing Phone dialing you get a message waiting to connect. Unable to receive calls when connected to wifi calling, but it is able to make calls over wifi.” – 3/5 in Play Store
