Product Description

TEXTFREE + FREE CALLING = PINGER
We started with the USA’s #1 free texting app, added free calling, and created a whole new mega app. Introducing Pinger for Android. Let freedom ring!

FREE SMS PLUS FREE CALLING TO ANY PHONE
Pinger gives your Android phone free text messaging AND now free calling to any phone, including landlines and non-smartphones, in the US and Canada. Your friends don’t need Pinger to receive -- they don’t even need to have a smartphone. You get your own real phone number that you can use to call and SMS any phone number in Canada and the US, even if you don’t have a calling plan.

TEXTING IS UNLIMITED; EARN MINUTES FOR FREE OUTBOUND CALLS
As always, texting is totally free and unlimited. Incoming calls are free. You get 20 free minutes to start, then you earn minutes for additional free outbound calls. And if you run out of minutes, it's easy to buy super cheap minutes.

TEXTFREE USERS: YOU WANT THIS APP!
Finally, free your voice on your Android device. Login to keep your Textfree number and get the new features you’ve been asking for. It’s the biggest improvement to Textfree since, well, free texting.
• Free calls to any phone in the US and Canada
• Get a free second line for your phone
• Send unlimited free SMS to more than 35 countries
• Get full screen text and call notifications
• Customize your voicemail greeting
• Know the instant someone reads your texts
• Sync your contacts' photos with Facebook
• One view for texts, calls and voicemails
• Faster, more reliable, easier to use than Textfree

BETTER THAN THOSE MESSENGER APPS
With Pinger you can call or text any phone number, even if they don’t have Pinger and even if they don’t have a smartphone!
• Call or text your grandmother’s non-smartphone in Minneapolis--FREE.
• Call any restaurant in New York to make reservations--FREE.
• Text a co-worker in Dallas or Toronto as much as you want--FREE.
• Messenger apps only work for text messages or calls between people using the app. And only when they have a smartphone.
NO NEED FOR MULTIPLE TEXTING & CALLING APPS
Now you don’t need to know what messenger apps your friends, family or co-workers use. Pinger does it all. Just use their mobile phone number and your texts are 100% free. Earn minutes for free calling to any phone in the US and Canada. It’s that simple.
PINGER IS MORE THAN A MESSENGER
When your friends have Pinger talking and texting gets even better. The calls are in HD, so they sound great. And you and your friends get unlimited free calls (talk as long as you like) and unlimited free texts (goodbye 160 character limit!) to and from one another, anywhere in the world.
PACKED WITH ADDITIONAL FEATURES
• Call or text for free back to the US and Canada from anywhere in the world when you have a data connection or WiFi

Used for awhile on my decomissioned iphone, love the intereface and user friendly ease. Perfect replacement for your carrier assuming you have data or internet access everywere. Read the reviews on it not working for tablets but I tried anyway - and it works awesomely! Downloaded, installation froze, but when I accessed the app it fired up and works wonderfully! A must for texters!

4.0 out of 5 stars From a long time Textfree user January 19, 2013
Verified Purchase
I have always enjoyed the simple service that Textfree provided with just being able to text my friends and family back in the States so I was hesitant to go over to Pinger because I was afraid it would be more than what I wanted. Luckily though, if I just want to use it the same as Textfree, I can do that for the most part. And now I have the added functionality of my family being able to call me for free so it's a win/win situation!
