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.

I wouldnt get to talk to my friends and family without it

Great App

I use it all the time. One of the best third-party texting apps

Super Fast!

Love the speed of my texts from the US to Dubai. So far the best texting app!


I love the app but there is one big problem if me and my friends want to call and talk on the phone I can hear them but they cant hear me. This is a big problem in my eyes if there is any suggestions for help please tell me.

Wow, live it

I loaded this app cause my helper couldnt get and texts thru AT&T suddenly. (All calls go right to voice mail...) This has more that met my expectations. Yes, there are ads but text for free.

I love the app

Great app!!

Works flawlessly.
