FREE in the App Store

Textfree is a very compelling option for texting on an iOS device. This app gives you your own phone number to be used on your devices, while providing support for Facebook Chat as well. However, what really sets Textfree apart from the rest is its ability to make and receive phone calls. This feature is free for Textfree to Textfree users but costs money to buy minutes. Overall, Textfree is an extremely stable and reliable app that is probably the best for texting and calls on any iDevice.

What is it about?

Textfree Ultra gives you your own U.S. phone number for use on all of your devices, and it offers plenty of features. You can send group messages, pictures, and text. Emoji support along with international calling and voicemail round out the feature set. It's free and unlimited, with real MMS picture messages, allowing you to send images to friends and family even if they don't have the Textfree Ultra app.

Why we love it

The best thing about Textfree Ultra is that it works well even when sending messages to folks who don't have the same app. Incoming calls are free, as are Textfree-to-Textfree voice conversations. You can earn outbound calling images easily, or buy them with in-app purchase.

App Store Description

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.
