Its great but a few fixes
I have a twin sister that lives in a different state then me, she has a real phone while i have a iPod. I didn't have a phone number until i got this app, it works for other apps sometimes when it says phone number, U CAN ACTUALLY USE THE PHONE NUMBER FOR CLARIFICATION ON DIFFERENT APPS! I was excited about this until it got logged out of my account. And if i told all of my friends that i got a new phone number every other week then that would just be weird. So if you were to get this I would recommend remembering your password or buying your phone number, but i think you have to pay for it every month. There are also A LOT of ads, every single time you text someone you have a ad pop up, every single time you call someone there is a video ad. And if you want to go ad free then you have to pay for it, EVER WEEK. Or if you pay more then its ever month. If you don't want to to deal with all of this then i would recommend getting a different app. Overall of these bad stuff I think its a pretty good app. Ps. It wont let u send text messages to people that only have emails.

This app was good but now garbage / updated review
The app worked great when first purchased but when I restored my subscription and paid Apple everything was fine and received premium features other than advertisements that clogged the app making it unusable. I clicked “restore purchases “ but that button in the app did not work. I clicked purchase monthly premium button but was stopped by Apple saying you already purchased this premium service. I worked with Apple support on the issue this app was having in restoring the purchase. The problem was a complicated issue where my old TextMe account was deleted since I had discontinue the service earlier. When I clicked the restore purchase there wasn’t a TextMe account to restore to. This was not to fault of the TextMe team or Apple. What I need to do was wait now until the restore time-out which will be a couple of weeks, make sure this old purchase is cancelled, then log out the Apple Media account, reboot my iPhone and log back in. Then I can purchase a new TextMe account (do use the old one) and complete the purchase. This issue is not related to the TextMe app or Apple. It is just one of the got you things that can happen to a complex system. The TextMe team was good in responding and providing support!!

Taking my money monthly but can’t use it due to pop up
I am a monthly subscriber unable to use the app as every time I open it, a pop up asking me to select a new US or Canadian number blocks using any further part of the app. I do not want to choose another number as I finally did this before to get rid of the pop ups and I was hounded with unsolicited calls. I have been in conversation with their customer service for months over this and asked them to refund me for the months I have been unable to use the app due to this issue. They told me I had to go to Apple to get a refund as it’s an apple Subscription. They then claimed it was the device (an up to date iPhone less than a year old!), but I have since changed devices and the problem persists, so that excuse isn’t working for them anymore. They also told me to delete the app and download their sister site FreeTone, but this will cost me $1.99 and there is no way I am giving this company a cent further when they are charging me every month but the app is unusable. Also, before I subscribed, my number would periodically disappear, even though I had paid to keep my number, which is why I ended up subscribing and why I am still trying to resolve this, as changing my number will be very difficult. When I subscribed, that’s when the pop ups came and the app became non functioning for me. Absolutely useless.

WORST I HAVE EVER USED
I wanted to give it no stars, but they are making me give it at least one. I got this app and PAID to secure a phone number, I also PAID MONTHLY for the service. I did this for my job, so I wouldn’t have to have two cell phones. My first day of work, they blocked me from sending any texts! I thought the app is called “TextMe”?? When I asked them what happened, they told me I was sending too many texts. I told them I am a mobile groomer, and I text my clients to let them know when I’m on my way, and I text them to let them know when I have arrived so I don’t ring the doorbell. Their response to that was simply “you can delete your account (with instructions how to), but we cannot delete it for you” (??) I did not want to delete my account. I asked them if I could pay more to use their service, and once again they replied that they can’t delete my account for me I have to do it myself, followed by “we have nothing further to say”. After that, they blocked me from making and receiving phone calls!! I tried to talk to them several times, and every time at the end of their email they just said “we have nothing further to say.” I don’t know who gave this thing good reviews, probably their friends! This is a scam. Unfortunately, I am still paying monthly, because I gave this phone number out to clients. I will be deactivating my account very soon!

When it works….
So when this app works it’s not too bad but as of lately this app has made me want to throw my phone at the wall 😡 I am not happy that I am paying for a service that only works maybe 50% of the time and support says to make sure the app is up to date to everything!!!!! It is UP TO DATE it automatically updates anytime there is one. I even tried this on my husbands Samsung Flip though maybe it was just my phone but it did the same exact thing!!! If you have to push any kind of number while on a call just forget it you can sit there and push 1 over and over and over again and it won’t work. The anger this has caused me and so much time waiting on the phone just to have to hang up anyways because I can’t push the number I need. I’m canceling once this month is up and going to find a more reliable alternative as this seems to be an issue they don’t know how to fix. Oh or you’ll be getting a call and the app will open to the start screen like you haven’t even created an account so you can’t answer the call that is still calling because you now have to go thru the “get started” process. You need to give people back their money we don’t pay for half the service we pay for ALL the service.

Looking for second number to use for verification???
Hands down THE BEST for verification purposes I have tried a million different “phone” apps and every time I need a verifiable number I get rejected aside from this app! It works every time. Which is amazing considering I don’t always like using my number and it just adds that extra level of security when doing things online for me anyway. Ok another plus is there aren’t a lot of ads like most I have tried to use every two minutes literally you have to watch an ad but again not this app. Plus there is also the option to pay a small dollar amount to completely remove ads if you plan on using this more often then not. As I don’t use it much I don’t pay for that. So far I have not had any issues with the app itself either. No glitches or anything of that nature. If your considering this app I would say go for it!

It is fabulous
It is fabulous because I have a friend all the way in Puerto Rico and I don’t get to see her like I don’t be going there sometimes, but I can’t see a lot and I’m bout to be not friends with her but that’s another story time but yeah, I’m not gonna be friends with her because she was never on my sister but yeah so I think it’s good cause I’m bout to block her right now, so yeah it is fabulous but sometimes you have to just block block block block block everybody that you really like but it is what it is. It is what it is. It is what it is so that’s it that’s why you should never have a friend that likes your friend. Oh I mean they can’t have a friend that always stay next to your boyfriend because why are you doing why blocking you like your we’re supposed to be friends and it’s going to be like talking to him like bro, just leave me alone at this point and him for years, I’ve been talking to him for months thing like broken just leave. I’m sorry this name but yeah it’s kind of stuff… I know I have a big wide want to buy some kids some adults know what I’m talking about because I know I know what I’m talking about

Very deceptive
The description claims that calls and texts are free. This couldn’t be further from the truth. After downloading and selecting a number, I was sent a text and went to retrieve it. I received a message that I had to pay to secure the number for a week to view the text. This is on top of receiving what felt like pop up ads navigating to pop up ads navigating to pop up ads. I thought I had a virus it was so bad. So I tried purchasing credits which left me still unable to view the text. I then purchased a week trial and could finally view the text. I sent support a message asking for a refund of my purchases since the description said free and I received a speedy response confirming that calls and texts were free and asked me to send a screenshot of the issue. So I sent a screen shot of the block I received showing that it forced me to purchase a week to see the text. I received another speedy response confirming that I had to pay for a week and that credits do not work in the app. So I again asked for a refund and no longer received that speedy response I had become accustomed to. I guess everyone went home for the day. If you don’t mind paying $6 a week for a paid subscription to get free texts and calls then this is the app for you. Silly crooks.

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.

Unprofessional
I tried this app out for a short while. It works. I continued to use it and decided to purchase it long term for my business! I acquired quite a following with over 350 clients. I purchased the unlimited option where I could call & receive unlimited calls & text messages. Suddenly I was unable to call out. I contacted tech support via email since that’s all they offered and they sent me an app to check the speed of my phone. While I did that, they wiped my account clean and locked me out! The next day when I went into the app to access my client list it was as though I was accessing the app for the 1st time. My log in didn’t work or anything! The phone number rings but not to my phone. The company still charging me for the app. I contacted them on the original complaint & they said there was an unusual amount of activity on the account so they shut it down & there is nothing more they can do for me! What? They refused to give me access to my client list or even release the phone number! WHAT A GROUP OF UNPROFESSIONAL NON-EMPATHETIC INDIVIDUALS! You could have just asked me. Your app is crap. It didn’t hold up. You all are a group of crooks. If I could have given u a 0 I would have!

Ripped off
I wish I could give a negative star rating. This is the first time ever that I write a review anywhere. I had a premium subscription and just recently, as their new update rolled out, I stopped being able to send text messages and make calls, but i was able to recieve them. So I did what anyone would do and contacted their support. And they reply to me and mark it as SOLVED. They said and I quote, “We detected unusual activity on your TextMe account(s). In accordance with the TextMe, Inc, End User License Agreemant and Terms and Conditions, we have limited services available for your account(s) because the activity, or previous activity, is inconsistent with normal use.” Sending a text to my mom and making calls to her is unusual? Using that phone number to sign in to social media is unusual? What part of it is unusual? And they didn’t even say what it was or offer to take off their “Limited Services” to my account or even give me my refund! They just outright cancelled my plan without reason. Worst wifi communications app I have ever used. Do not lose your money on this. Get a prepaid phone instead. I unfortunately couldn’t afford one so I tried out this app for their low prices. Bad idea.

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.

Too Many Ads
This is an ok app, but there are wayyyyy to many ads. I see ads just pop up randomly when I’m trying to text. It won’t let me touch anything, it just freezes up. Ads at literally the worst things ever invented. Listen if you don’t care, go ahead and try this app out, once you try you will come back and thank me I told you ads were the worst. If you like ads, you know, when they pop up every once in awhile, maybe once every 10-20 minutes, we’ll on text me it’s every second, they never go away, and I thinks it’s dumb to get them removed with money, they shouldn’t be there, how come IMessage doesn’t have one single ad? Dint even tell me that you would even think I’m wrong, go and try the app, you will believe me. I only use this app to text my Grandmas because they don’t have iPhones, I’m fine using that but I really need improvement, please I’m begging you.

Dangerous if you use it seriously
This is not a legitimate phone number if you understand what this means. All phone numbers are not equal anymore. 5 different text me numbers I paid for resulted in all types of disasters from financial to personal injury. If high security is ever at stake, or identity, not only will this number never work or get through, you cannot even use it to be verified by any travel sites, major banks and their debit cards, anything with two part authentication (including Microsoft) instantly reads these numbers as aliases, or ghosts, and you’re ignored, not authenticated, approved and with no explanation. That’s because this is likely to go to court at some point. If this is for fun and prank calls - it works. If your loved one is in a nursing home and you want mom to have a unique number to reach you? Don’t risk it. Then? Customer service is such a joke, they scam you into paying for certain text messages that are “more important “ because they have a pic in them (or logo). Every week you get warnings you aren’t using the number enough, so PAY MORE NOW OR ELSE. I’m out hundreds to them, and slowly getting out.

Very great app!
App is very easy to use and I get to have an additional number for my purpose! I love that I even get to choose my own number from about 4 options!! I enjoy its letting me build up credit score to earn points; it is a very excellent function to have! Honestly, there is nothing of this app that I can complain about. I do have a question though. There is a section called “Grant of Limited License” within the Terms & Conditions that states, “Subject to these T&Cs and our relevant User Agreements, We hereby grant you a limited, non-transferable, non-exclusive, non-sublicensable license for access and use of Content, Products and Services.” Does being “non-exclusive” mean that this number will be given to a different user once my premium subscription expires? If it should be interpreted a different way, please clarify how. I would really appreciate your help and time! Thank you very much, TextMe team :)

How unfortunate...
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.

Perfect
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. 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼

Useless app and deceptive billing
If there were negative stars, that’s what this app would get from me. I downloaded this just for a moment after having deleted it over a week ago, so I can leave a review and warn everyone about the app and its developer. This app purports to provide a working phone number that at minimum would allow me to send, and receive texts, and one text actually went through. Then, the app required payment of $1.99. Once paid, the app never worked again. I don’t even know if the phone number was active. After one week, the weekly charge went up to $6.49, but I continued to in vain to troubleshoot. The app never functioned again besides the one free text. Worse, unlike every subscription service I’ve ever paid for, this app doesn’t actually charge until about five or six days into a subscription period of 7 days. Thus, the undiscerning user might fail to realize they are not entitled to a refund, as the charges are NOT renewal charges, but compensation charges for time in the past. Since the app did not perform any real function, the only time I spent in it was trying to get it to work. That was enough to deny me a refund I guess, even though I deleted the app canceled my account and canceled the subscription days before the next week which my most recent charge covered. Do not be deceived, do not expect this app to function, just find a better, more honest company to work with. this is simply a money collecting scheme, and nothing more.

Good and worse
I’ve been using text now for over 3 years now and they limited service on my account because of activities on my account and I haven’t done any illegal activities on my account that went against their policy and I paid for 3 numbers and my account was limited. I had to connect their customer service and all they could say is they can’t do anything further because the block on my account is automatic and they can’t see the reason my account is banned. I opened another one and they did the same thing 2 days after. My question is what happens to our business on our accounts? How are you going to banned someone account without you been able to state the reason why ? I even tried refund my subscription but apple won’t do any of that. What’s going on ? Is your system glitched or what ? Please I need my account back

I would like to express how GRATEFUL I am that a service app. is available to people like myself that really depends on having a phone service for great reasons, for example, I rely on this app. because I have serious health issues and sometimes I can’t afford to pay monthly phone bills knowing that I have to choose between taking my 22 pills a day of medication ( every medication has a co-pay) or paying a phone bill which can SAVE MY LIFE if I would ever need to call for help. On the other hand, it’s just as important to take my 22 pills a day (MEDICATION) in orders to maintain my HEALTH and regulate my pain daily in my body. THEREFORE, without this phone app. I would be put in a very STRESSFUL SITUATION. I would like to say BEST APP. ever. Whether it is known or not, THIS APP. IS ONE OF THOSE THAT DEFINITELY CAN SAVE LIVES. DEEPLY APPRECIATED,,, SINCERELY, NLH, PITTSBURGH PA

Disappointed
My husband just now downloaded this app for me today. My husband and I decided to use this because our phones were disconnected. So we use it as a temporary phone number. I tried to do everyone on my contact list. It doesn’t let you text everyone. With text messages, it left me do only 6 people and when I got to the 7th one, it said text message cannot be sent. I tried calling that same 7th person. Didn’t go through. I was talking to my biological father on the phone, I randomly lost his call, never said call been dropped. Never said signal lost or anything like that. Now I go to text my mom again, the very 1st person I texted. It said text message cannot be sent. I called my biological father, call did not go through. I thought it would be a good app to have. But it isn’t at all, it’s a disappointment. I need some kind of contact with my mom because of my seizures, also to keep contact with doctors for my daughters and me etc.

DO NOT USE THIS APP! THEY WILL DELETE YOUR ACCOUNT WITHOUT EXPLANATION!!!
I was using the paid version of this application for nearly a year and all of a sudden last week my account was disabled, I could not send or receive texts or calls, so I contact their support and they said they detected unusual activity from my account which is a lie I did not do anything unusual, but they refused to fix the problem and instead deleted my account for no reason. I lost a lot of personal and business texts and contacts and I have lost thousands of dollars in lost business, and several personal relationships because of this. Do not use this application they will defraud you take your money and leave you stranded. This company should be sued and they should be removed from the App Store for committing fraud against customers! There are multiple reviews like mine within the past week or two, this company needs to be investigated for stealing and lying to their customers!!! I’m going to file a complaint with Apple ASAP.

Need EVERYONE to report them!!!
I ignored all the 1 star reviews because there are a lot of 5 year olds on the App Store that want everything for free. BUT I wish I could sue these developers. They suspended my account a while back for "unusual activity". Problem is the only unusual activity were conversations I had that they didn't like. If they disagree with your world view they cut off paying customers. Only had a few contacts (less than 10), all in the U.S. and nothing illegal or unusual at all. I paid up front for multiple numbers and they would not issue a refund. I hope they fail and fail soon. I will spend time making absolutely sure they do fail and will never stop telling people about this scam. If you had the same experience spend a few minutes reporting them to the FTC, Apple, the California Attorney General, and most importantly spread the word like wildfire. Social media and consumer help reporters from local radio and TV. Let's make sure this garbage is put to bed!!!

Scam most definitely
It says that it’s free and I can use it without paying, (and when you search “free number apps” this shows up as the top option) but my friends have tried to text me MANY TIMES and it does not work. I went to a dance and this guy wanted my number, but I live in the mountains (like desert middle of no where, we have to drive an hour for any civilization and it doesn’t even have a Walmart in that town) so I don’t have a SIM card, no point when we get no service, so I downloaded this after having to lie to the receptionist of the school to get the Wi-Fi password and so I’ve been standing him up for 4 days now because this app is a no good piece of crap! I also gave the number to many apps and the apps completely logged me out because the number “isn’t secure” and it thinks I’m a bot from how bad this app is. Whoever gave this app 5 stars was bribed because there is no way this app is good, not even exceptional. Horrible, don’t waste phone storage or time on this app.

Worst texting app
Me and my brother had this account because my parents didn’t want us to have the normal app so we would text whoever are friends and family but we would get random messages from people sending voice mails and telling us we haven’t paid them and the next week we got random calls or the app would tell us if we wanted to text someone from Hawaii or Canada but we said no but the app KEPTED on telling us but when we pressed yes the person asked for pictures of us and stuff I don’t wanna say and I will remind you me and my brother where ten and now we are 14 so we told are parents but they didn’t do anything but everyday thoses two people would text asking for stuff pictures of are house or a picture of where we are until the people told us they wheee going to come get us so me and my rbother delete the app and we have never gotten message so if you wanna download this for your kid please if it asks to text this person keep on pressing no . :)

2 bars and the app goes to trash
I paid for premium. The app is OK as far as features and usability. However, if I have two bars I can’t answer incoming calls and the app basically freezes. A normal call through the iPhone has no issue. Also, I never have a problem with another ‘extra line’ app. I use this number as a client contact line so it really needs to work as well as the regular phone line. The next part is what gets the 1 star. I ported my number to another app, and TextMe completely shut off my access. Even if I discontinue the service, I should still be able to look at my old text chains. I frickin paid for that! And also, the port takes 10-15 days I guess?! But my number is supposed to stay working until the actual switch takes place. Nope, no working phone number and no access to the app. Even though I’m paid up through the end of the month. And this is really screwing me over as I take sales call on that number!

Don’t wast your time
It’s not free by any means. You have to pay a ridiculous price for a mediocre app. They’ll give you a number and if you text someone, it’ll tell you you have to make a purchase to see the text. I did buy 100 credits and eventually lost them as well as my number. Don’t bother wasting your time on this crappy app, they’re plenty of better texting apps. Also encountering a problem where I am getting random phone calls multiple times a day and can’t turn off the ringer specifically for this app which is weird. For how much they charge, it’s cheaper to just get a free phone from almost any carrier and get a monthly plan. I had this as a 2nd number mainly for stuff that required phone info and didn’t want to use my personal cell so I bought a burner phone and it works way better and don’t gotta put up with the random phone calls. Should be illegal to sell someone a number and then sell the phone number to scammers.

Great texting app not to much of a calling person so can’t say anything about that but this the only app that takes privacy and security to a whole different level!! If you have family or friends using your phone you can add a passcode (multiple options like your Lock Screen, also can hide your conversations ( for all you cheating unfaithful people ) or if you simply have bad trust issues like myself and don’t want to delete the messages you can select hide chat and it can’t be seen until password is entered!!! I like looking back at old messages but also want to keep them private! Just need to have cellular data or be connected to Wi-Fi! Best app for a second number hands down 💯

Best app for calling that I’ve found.
I use it to call my grandpa (who is 90, has dementia, and doesn’t use any social media or messaging apps) on his home phone in another country three times a week. It would cost me a fortune to do that on my regular phone plan but with this app it’s affordable and the call quality is great! I’ve tried so many other apps and none have been reliable in making or receiving calls from him. This one is fabulous and well worth the minimal cost for using it. This app has pretty much single-handedly allowed me to keep in touch with my grandfather during COVID times when he hasn’t been able to go out or have visitors and I haven’t been able to go home and see him. 🧡🧡🧡

I understand that because it is a free app, you need ads to fund the usage, but I get ads almost every time that I exit one person’s text feed to the next, which was very frustrating because they were often long ads that took up a lot of time or actually sometimes covered the space where you can see what you are typing. Another problem that I had with this app is that I loose my number when I don’t use it for what seems like a day. Yes, they text you warnings, but you can’t see those warnings if you are asleep and you have little time to fulfill them. I woke up this morning to check what my friend had texted me on that app because she has a real phone number and I do not. I try to get in, but then I see a screen that says “your number has expired! Please Choose a new one!” And when I go to choose a new one, it does not look like I will be able to get a completely free number with no plan. If I really wanted to secure my number, then I would have to pay $4.99 a week, which would be almost the same in the end as getting a real phone number, so why invest in this app? Sometimes the app doesn’t even work! I will attempt to text my friend, and some days she can’t even respond to me!!! I also had that problem as well. I hope that you found my review helpful and please, don’t waste your time on this app.

Changes your number when you absolutely ARE USING IT, hides your texts without your consent
I’ve reviewed this here before now, TWICE. And each time it gets deleted. I don’t understand what kind of Fraud is going on here with these reviews, but they are clearly skewed towards positive reviews and you not believe that. Firstly, as stated, I was using my account and without warning, noticed a text that said “I’m sorry you can’t use your text me number so we took it away” or something to that effect. Now how can the not see that I have been using it recently for texting as intended? Now my new hard to remember number has all the texts hidden without my consent. It asked for a fingerprint to show them and my device HAS NO FINGERPRINT FUNCTIONALITY. When I tried to use Face ID, of course it was unrecognized because I DID NOT SET THIS UP. And I live alone so nobody else can access my phone except a German Shepherd and her face doesn’t work to shut of the text hiding either.

They Have Changed For The Worst
I want to say, I used to love this application. I recommend this app to all my co-workers and family & friends. Basically what the problem is they used to be able to let you burn and get 6 new numbers every 24hours if you had the premium membership with them. About 3-4 weeks ago is when they completely changed that and only let you burn and get 2 new numbers every 24 hours and sometimes not even. Only 1 number, every time I press burn number it goes back to the same page it was on. Can you guys please help resolve this problem and make TextMe great again :(( I would love to give you guys the 5 stars you once deserved but it’s not the same anymore. Thank you so much for your time, and I hope you can help me resolve this problem. I have been a premium member for 5 months now, and have bought couple extra numbers at once as well. I’m a loyal customer. Please help me resolve this manner. Thank you so much.

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

Oh boi
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.

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.

I cant ask for a better application
This application is so cool. I am a kid and sense l am not big enough for a phone l use this application to feel l have a phone and it really works! When you start they give you like a real phone number and if another device calls that number you get the call like a real phone🤩 sense l have a iPad there is some phones that are not compatible with my iPad but it makes it makes it possible! That is the reason why l downloaded this is because is like magic that automatically makes you talk with a phone number that is not compatible with my iPad. For a kid is a really cool that to download and plus everything is free! So if you are reading this DOWNLOAD IT NOW RIGHT THIS INSTANT!!!🥺🥺🥺please because is amazing

Started off good
My phone lost its service provider but it still can connect to Wi-Fi so I downloaded this app and started texting people then outa nowhere it stops sending texts and the people I’m texting too think I’m ignoring them and get very mad at me. My Wi-Fi signal is still excellent so why the texts would stop sending I have no clue a search online couldn’t find an answer either. So I made a new login with different email got a different number and I was able to send texts again until I encountered the same problem moments later what happened it was going well but having texts stop being able to be sent is causing me to doubt this app and maybe even switch to a different app I am a loyal person if you can fix this issue in 48 hours I’ll keep using your app but if I can’t send texts on a texting app then it’s no good to me

Highly recommended ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
My actual favorite 2nd phone and wifi calling and texting app for FREE! I never leave reviews this is literally my 2nd one ever but it’s well deserved. This app is definitely the very best one to get if your looking for a way to call or text for free with your wifi or data. I have tried more than my share of them trying to have a way to communicate without giving my actual number and it still be reliable and this is hands down the best . The developers went above and beyond on this app. The features you can use while staying FREE are so cool and amazing like the Rate Finder I am in love with that and have never seen that anywhere else.

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.

Very great app honestly speaking
I dont normally write reviews but I’ve been using this app for almost 2 years now and I thought to myself “These guys deserve their roses, I’m going to give it to them” cause this app does an EXCELLENT job as a second phone number for me. I can call and text people with the comfort of knowing they can’t call my real number back because im using this fake one. The phone calls can be a little hit or missy in quality but the texting is perfect and I feel like thats what a lot people came for especially me so its a great app. A few improvements can be made but if they never upgraded anything this is still a 10/10 app to me.

The best app ever🤩, but a suggestion
This is the best app I’ve ever used. I can have a new number for free and it doesn’t cost like a ton of other apps like this that feel like a scam. There is one thing that would make this app become 2x better and usable by businesses: custom automated message replies and calls. Have you ever called a business and it told you to press 1 for one thing, 2 for another, and so on? It would be great if you could have custom calls like this with the phone number. And it would be also amazing if you could do automated responses and “reply STOP to stop” type messages from the phone number. Ty 😁

Don’t Get If You Don’t Mind Losing The Number
This app is a waste. I must have had to choose a new number 3 or 4 times since I downloaded. After the first time didn’t care and waited several months, then several more, then maybe a year and their practice hasn’t improved. This was my final attempt to try them again and they have already canceled my number in just 3 days of getting it. I’ve been using ‘TextFree’, ‘Talkatone’, and ‘TalkU for the same amount of years I’ve used TextMe and have never lost my numbers from those apps. As long as you make a call or send a text within a month, you’re good with them. TextMe seems to only be motivated to get you to buy a subscription, so they disconnect the number hoping you’ll be desperate. Thank goodness I didn’t print my advertising flyers with their number like I intended to. Time to finally delete and never reinstall this app. GOODBYE!

I downloaded the app paying the $4.99. It worked good I set up voice mail , Them my IPAD became disabled from the password unlock which Apple made also to reset App,e ID after cops did St Bernardino Terrorist with foreigners etc: Then Steve Jobs died which I believe the real story did not come out, Now I could not write this review with my settings on, Behind the scenes new Emp,oyees. Remote spy with share screen mobile ability Since Aoole Tech support asks to allow mobile screen sharing. Someone is always screen sharing my stuff and how many other people? I have been Texting Text Me Support and Zen desk is that legit? The App log in wants me to get a new free number, I paid there is no phone support which is troublesome especially when the Company gives 2nd phone numbers!

Its a great app but VERY limited customization
I am a paid subscriber, there isnt any reason why there shouldn’t be more customization options for ringtone and textones for paid users, basically this app has the same functionality of other calling apps, except a few different other apps have far more customization for free and text me makes you pay to keep your phone number. Some developers just allow you to keep the number as long as you are actively using it, so I’m just paying for the number and to remove adds, there is not a whole lot of bells and whistles to keep me paying for this app indefinitely, which is what they are expecting, they are not adding any improvements or new features but demanding you pay a reoccurring charge instead of one flat fee.

False Advertising
Companies can be sued for false advertising lol. But it’s really not free. I don’t know why they say you can text & call for free when you can’t. I’ve used this app for 2 days & by the 3rd day nobody gets my messages but I can get theirs. My little cousin dropped my phone down the stairs & broke it. So I was going to use this app on my iPod until my new phone comes in. The concept of the app is good but they lied about free texting & calling. I only used the texting part of the app. Don’t bother downloading. I also read a view where they charge someone & they can’t even get back into their account. So don’t trust this app. I also read that they started the app with a lot of positivity & now that their all big they went down hill & been using the old positive reviews to drive more customers. Don’t trust this app. Their are better apps out there.

Log in Problems
This app is overall decent until recently it just was not sending or receiving messages and when I erased the app and downloaded it again I tried to sign in with the email I originally used to create an account and the first time I tried to log in and said glad to see you back and proceeded to sign in so I put in my email and my passsord and every time I’d it login it wouldn’t do nothing it wouldn’t say the password is wrong nothing just loads up to make me try to sign in again so after that I closed the app and try to sign in again with the same email after that it said I never had an account under that same email and it’s frustrating because I had a lot of contacts in there that I need and can’t get back unless the problems is fixed and I can login 2 stars sorry not sorry

The ads...
I have had this app for a little over a year now and let me just say, it’s getting annoying. The constant ads are so annoying, and I’ll give you an example. After you exit out of a conversation, you get an ad. When you enter the app, it doesn’t load the ad at first and then you click the place where it’s supposed to be and then they take you to the ad. And the most annoying one is after EVERY TEXT MESSAGE, an ad shows up in the keyboard place. I don’t know if they’re trying to get you to click it, or what. The texting is fairly annoying, too. It takes forever to receive for me, and what I think would make this app so much better is knowing when the person is typing. The cross-platform thing helps, but overall it tests my patience to use. Thanks for listening, hope you have a great day!
