Text Free: Texting App + SMS

Text Free: Texting App + SMS application logo

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.


• Reserve Number ($4.99 monthly) - Keep your number from expiring (normally we reclaim in active numbers after 30-days)
• Voicemail-To-Text ($4.99 monthly) - Get your voicemails transcribed and sent as a text message so you can read it at your convenience.
• Remove Ads ($2.99 monthly) - This one, well, you get the idea.

Subscriptions are automatically billed monthly to your iTunes Account and auto-renew. You can manage your subscriptions in the App Store’s Account Settings. Subscriptions automatically renew unless auto-renew is turned off at least 24-hours before the end of the current period.

needs pda

Best app for ipods  needs pda  5 star

I currently use the same number on all 3 of my ipod touchs a 3,5,+6. They keep the updates current. This must be 6 years plus now. Cheapest and best service. Very happy. No cell service. Has saved me thousands. Wifi is pretty much everywhere now.


Glitches  RPJazmin  3 star

Your app keeps glitching me and taking me to the App Store and I hate it. I’ll open the app and before it even shows me my messages it takes me to the App Store. FIX THIS


Great app. Keeps freezing and lots of pop ups  mutedspark3  4 star

App keeps freezing since the iPhone update. And lots of pop ups lately. I have to close out of the app and restart a lot. Still love the app. Please fix.

Speedy 409

Best For Preteens Or Younger Even Older!  Speedy 409  4 star

I’ve used this app at the age of 10 and am still using today to talk to my friends,family, and sometimes pizza delivery (just kidding I don’t know if they have that feature but I hope they do). Great for those who don’t want an actual phone or doesn’t have one at the moment also for the ones who don’t like mobile companies that will rather stick to WiFi, but here’s why I give it a 4. There are two essential things you guys have to do that bug me! limit ads because every time every 15-30 seconds I see an ad pop up it’s not that annoying but I would love to see less. 2, from the day I got the app I’m not sure if this feature is there and that feature is groups! I haven’t seen or know how to do it please help and thanks if you read it have a good day


Huge price increase  cabshere  1 star

The cost to block ads on this app jumped 600% from $5.99 a year to $2.99 a MONTH. $36 a year. You know they're making a ton off accidentally ad clicks.


Awesome App!  ACody6399  5 star



App does not notify me  FkCrAppLe  1 star

The app does not notify me that I have new texts unless I open the app up at which time it notifies me, this is a big bug.


A+  Davecito95  5 star

Not cool  Mahdii23  1 star

Ads getting in the way of text and calls is horrible. Charging monthly to remove them is not cool.

Amazing  Zaid Qusay  5 star

This app is awesome it is good when you don’t have a phone but want to text and I do have a phone and it is good for saving up money :)


Works  Minnienva  5 star

It does the job I haven't had phone service in over a year and This works wonders with wifi I can text call and do group text & mms messaging


Horrible update  Stacypsmith  1 star

The update stinks! I’ve had this app for years and this is the WORST update that has ever been released. It looks crappy and the only way you can tell if a message is new or not is by a small blue dot next to the message... instead of the entire message being bold. The layout looks like a I.M. program from 2000 which makes it look outdated and old. The old version was fine! This one is a eyesore and isn’t as efficient as the old version.


Ads opened without user interaction  Serey  1 star

This app used to be good and functional. However, lately I got ads that would automatically open themselves which would trigger Safari to open the ads links without me clicking on the ads. This seems intrusive. I know you have to make money through ads, but pls don’t allow ads to automatically open themselves without user clicking on the ads. This makes it seems like Scam.


Love it  tcbk  5 star

I love this app. It does what I need it to do.


Awesome  Beezumz  5 star



Just Great!  sharpshooter0904  5 star

Been using Text Free for years now and it’s the best app on the App Store for Texting and Calling. They continue to improve the app with new features, visual improvements, and bug fixes. All this app needs is Apple Watch support.
