Free Tone - Calling & Texting Positive Reviews
Satisfied customer!When friends or family would tell me about an app that gives you a different number, and can be used by wifi, I never believed it. I needed tot all to someone over text, but did not want this person to have my real number, & now a days no one answers blocked calls. I was spectical but tried to use it anyway, and amazingly it works !! This an amazing app, is very convenient ! If I meet someone knew, & don’t want them to know my number just yet, I can use this app! Or people investigating a suspicious husband/or wife, again can use this app!! It’s sneaky. But love it!! It also can be used for people who can’t afford to sign a contract with Verizon, or sprint, I have my own cellphone carrier, so I have service and internet , but I think if I didn’t have money for a monthly cellphone bill, I think all I have to do is be on wifi and that’s it! Very happy I came across this app! Will use for years to come! Suggest it to anyone would needs something like this!!.Version: 3.14.1
Does what you think it will, saved me!I was in need of an app quickly that worked almost identical to a normal cell phone, and I was lucky to come across this one! Not only are you able to make unlimited local calls, but you also receive a local phone number which you can use for inbound calls. Furthermore, there is an intuitive text messaging feature which works very well. I haven't tried the app with international, but if it works anywhere near the capacity of how local calls work it would be outstanding. There is a feature to get FREE credits for premium calls just from watching 60 second ad videos which is definitely worth it. Overall I give this app a 5 star bc it actually do s exactly what it says it will. Best of all, it's free! If you're going to complain about the ads, then you should be shot. Nothing in this world is truly free, and you are stupid if you think there is..Version: 3.12.7
I didn’t believe this would work .....🧐...just $5.00 per month for a “phone” that both texts and calls ??
But it did! 🤸🏼♀️
🎧And it works perfectly with my headphones-
I’ve had zero complaints about “not being able to hear me” and I can hear them just as well.
💵It’s cheaper than my $40 a month cell plan, although I have to be connected to WiFi because I don’t have mobile capabilities, but that hasn’t been a real issue, I just schedule my calls to come in when I know I’ll be home each day....which is fine since I work from home anyway..plus there’s tons of WiFi Hotspots everywhere.
And if I need to be mobile - I just pay a small fee for day to be connected via Xfinity or other companies offering instant mobile services.
🤨I usually am skeptical about rave reviews, I check and report the suspicious ones often .....but that’s not the case.
🥳It works - so try it and see.
God Bless and Stay Healthy.

So unreliableUPDATE 2/18
Thanks to the support team I was able to restore my account and credits. When this app works it’s great. Has all the features I need and better than most other similar apps I’ve tried. But as the title says (and remains) it’s been flaky and unreliable for me over the several years I’ve used it (since 2013). If it can work reliably for any length of time I’ll adjust my review again. For now I’ll add a star for the fix.
I’ve had this app (and it’s oddly confusing identical twin app TextMe) for several years now and it’s been a constant headache. Never kept such an unreliable app on my iPad and I would dump it if I had not invested money into credits and had so much history with the phone number. Their development team seem incapable of responding to iOS updates as every time Apple pushes out a major upgrade the app breaks.
To compound matters, their support staff are the most dim witted and clueless team on the planet. They can rarely sort problems out, and if they do it takes days of messaging back and forth. Hopeless. If only Skype did SMS. I’ve tried a few other text and call apps and they all seem pretty poor. After trying several some years ago I settled on FreeTone and boy do I regret it.
Do yourself a favour and stay well clear of this bag of fail.Version: 3.10.1
Could use improvementI’m SUPER thankful for this app as it is allowing me to make phone calls while I’m without a phone service, BUT after a month of use I have noticed a few odd things. You get notifications for the same text even after you’ve deleted it/read it, and every time I try to delete a message or conversation it is always there when I reopen the app (kind of disturbing that your texts can never be deleted, and frustrating because I’m sick of getting notified for month old messages). I’ve also randomly had phone calls end on me with no apparent reason. But I AM still thankful for this app and will continue to use for free, just hope for improvement especially for paying costumers.Version: 3.14.1
App is now crashingI’ve been using this app for a while now and it’s probably one of the better ones out there to use. I like how I can watch videos for credits since I am using this only to text people outside of the US. The only issues I’m having are recent. The app keeps blacking out or crashing, completely closing. I never had this problem before and it’s kind of irritating to have to open and close it over and over. I also wish there was options for phone numbers available to the Philippines as there isn’t any apps that provide that but I understand that there’s probably a reason for that. Overall I enjoy this app, just wish it didn’t crash all the time..Version: 3.10.1
Works GreatSo far. Just installed and called several numbers. Works great. Clear and loud. Credits are low priced. Ads are out of the way and not annoying. You can upgrade to remove ads. Works on iPad 12 iOS. Better than other competitors, I have used. It is FREE. Just buy credits, or earn from watching videos or other media. Works over WiFi, no need for Ethernet. You have your own number, you can choose from a short list. If you go premium, it’s 7.99 a month, for unlimited calling. That’s not even 100 dollars a year! Better than Magicjack..Version: 3.15.4
Really worksSo I was in a bit of a jam and needed to make a phone call quick when I found this app. I was heartily surprised to see it really works like a real phone number and you can place calls up to pretty much anywhere. It also starts you off with 10 free credits which I’m really grateful for, after that however you may need to buy more credits which range in price from 100c for like 2 bucks which is dirt cheap I’d say. If for whatever reason your number is cut off and need to place a call then I definitely recommend this..Version: 3.9.8
So far so goodDownloaded to use for work as I have gotten tired of missing personal calls due to using the same number for work and personal. Has every feature I have on my cell phone and has allowed me to keep one phone yet differentiate work calls. If I have cell signal this works. I was pleased to discover that it is 100 percent free. Ads are not disruptive and I find the UI to be better than the one that came with the phone number.
Great job and thanks for solving my issue!.Version: 3.14.1
Has Been A Good App for my NeedsThis app on my iPad is the only mobile phone I have, and I love it! It would not be a good substitute for a cell phone for people who use their phones a lot for talking, as there is some delay in hearing the speaker and vice versa (not real bad, but would make a long conversation less pleasant than a regular phone.) However, I don't like talking on the phone and my conversations are short. I use the app mostly for the text feature and urgent calls when I'm on the road. When I have to make a phone call, this app is quite sufficient. On my limited budget as a retiree, it saves me a bundle..Version: 3.10.1
Great app!!!!!This app is pretty cool for unlimited talk and text. There are many ads and sometimes you get notifications for the ads which is a bit annoying but it's cool that you can talk for an unlimited amount of time. I stayed on the phone for a complete hour and the service was temporarily unavailable but I called back immediately and the service worked fine so I would say steer clear for that. Overall great app and definitely worth the download..Version: 3.9.2
Good app, but one feature would make it even betterFree Tone is a great app. I’m thankful for it. But there’s one feature in particular missing: caller ID.
It would be nice if the developer would update the app to allow users to customize a Caller ID. Free Tone is not a well known app. And if you are trying to call someone from it, they are likely not to recognize your number and will think ‘who is this.’ The Free Tone app should have a Caller ID setting where users can customize and input their name so that even if someone you are calling from the Free Tone app doesn’t recognze the number, they recognize the name..Version: 3.27.1
Clear callsI’ve only made two calls so far, both have be just as clear as if it was “a brand name” service!
I’ve been able to make a call locally in Middle Georgia, then called my friend in California ... just like any other call!
As long as you have access to a WiFi connection you can make calls for an uncanny price compared to brand name companies, only issue is without WiFi no calls, but there is a voicemail!!!
Way cool.Version: 3.9.5
Good talking and texting app!!!!If your looking for an app you don’t have to get credits to use than your in the wrong place. But overall it’s a great app download run a couple of games and delete the games and you got credits that simple. Nothing is really free in life you just gotta put in a lil work. My phone is off for a couple of days and I’m happy to have this app right now really came in handy! Thanx for providing this service!!!.Version: 3.12.7
Surprised.I downloaded this app yesterday because I was out of minutes on my cell phone. I'm amazed at the quality of the sound. I think it's pretty awesome!
I've had this app for a couple of weeks and I still feel the same, it's great. I have had conversations up to an hour and it stays clear. I have called other states and it is still great.
I have told all my friends about it. I am very grateful for it..Version: 3.9.2
Lately app is real glitchyFrequently hangs up on calls, issues with sound quality or call connections. Why is this app so HUUUGGGEEE! Right now it surpasses the size of all my other apps including my photos and I’m one of these ppl that stores 1000+ pics on their phone forever!
Please fix by reducing size of the app removing some of the ad space. I realize its a “free” app and sponsors=$ but it’s getting to be a bit ridiculous to have an app that takes up this much space to perform only one or two functions...call or text..Version: 3.23.5
One issue I am having.So I have been using this app for almost 2 years now, it’s great I love it but recently it has been messing up. I call my boyfriend regular on this when my phone bill isn’t paid, and he gets my text and calls off of this app but I can’t get his text messages or calls? I went to look for a update to see if it was maybe a bug but there was no update. It’s frustrating for me having to call him and text him because he can’t call me or send me a text because I can’t get them..Version: 3.13.0
Pretty good!I have an iPhone 5s and I don’t have an iMessage account and then my friend told me about this and this turned out great I can text my friend across different states and I have my own phone number with no bugs but there are ads often which isn’t much of a problem. So overall this app is great..especially if you don’t have iMessage and need to text OR call friends with no bugs really, at least I didnt find any. Great app for texting and calling!!!👍👍😃.Version: 3.11.1
One of the bestI have this app for my daughter who has special needs. She has it on her iPod and iPad both. The app allows her to call me and me to call her. As well as text for free. Other apps like text free take real money to pay for minutes. This app actually does what it says with nothing hidden. The only down side is the ads but. The ads help the app continue to do what it says it will for free. Highly recommended app..Version: 3.14.1
Great App!I've had few app that claimed to have unlimited free calls and text but they never really worked, when I finally found one they decided to have a monthly fee to use their service. I'm glad I finally found another app that it's really free and works perfectly. I just hope the same thing doesn't happen now. I highly recommend this app. A++ (5⭐️).Version: 3.9.5
Good till todayI’ve been using Free Tone or a very long time it’s been AMAZING don’t get me wrong I love it until today. I got a notification said I had a miss call and the number kept calling so I went in he app to text the person and it said I needed to sign it again all my stuff was gone my number my contacts on the app everything gone. i hope that’s because I haven’t used it in a while I because of my traveling and no WiFi. Or what please help me..Version: 3.13.1
Top free texting/calling app period!!I love this app! Been using it since my phone got shut off and I must admit I am impressed! Calls are clear as long as your on a decent WiFi connection. Texts usually go through when sent. Only gripe is that my friend won’t get a text here and there for some reason and it will say it went through yet they never receive it. Other than that you cannot complain since it is basically free!! Thanks.Version: 3.12.8
Works fineThis app has been my primary phone number for the past few years. Mind you, I don’t use the phone a whole lot and I primarily text (though not excessively either). I use it on my iPad and the sound is just fine. Sometimes it’s a bit choppy, depending on connection, but overall it does what it’s supposed to. Ads aren’t too annoying to get past. I’ve also never had to add credits..Version: 3.19.0
ImpressedThis is the first time I've ever used this kind of an app. It has surpassed all my expectations. The call quality is good, the service is amazing and the app works fast and easy. I would recommend this app to all my friends. I have thoroughly enjoyed it and I am grateful that in today's society we can rely on the technology that is available to us..Version: 3.12.4
??????????So I signed up for this app and it was GREAT...but the glory was short-lived. Apparently I had to pay for my number in order to receive codes that I’d try to get from different websites to secure my accounts, etc. I don’t understand that if everything is free then why was my codes being held hostage on exchange-for-change? (I’m using a free app, ofc i have change lol :-p). I love this app and still do, I just hope that they REALLY make it free the next time around..Version: 3.16.4
It’s good but...This is a good app. I love how it can make calls and text! The little problems I have is sometimes my messages and calls DO NOT pop up in my notification sometimes. I will have to click in the app and refresh it just to see if someone text me. I’ll mis a text from someone hours ago because it never showed up in my notifications. It also happens when people call. It would show up as “miss call” but I will never get the call. PLEASE FIX THIS PROBLEM!.Version: 3.9.8
Annoying Ads Force me to DeleteFor the simple purpose of being able to disguise your actual number by using this instead, it works as needed. HOWEVER, the constant notices to “use it or lose it” messages if you stop using it for a week or two are ridiculous. You’ll get them constantly until you use it again or lose the number. Then you’ll get CONSTANT notifications requesting you pay & go premium. No thanks. Deleted..Version: 3.21.4
Helpful App indeed but serious delaysI’m thankful for this app reason being its free to use as I’m out of minutes on my main line, however there has been serious delays when on a call (I talk and the person on receiving end hears what I said seconds later) and we end up talking over one another. Experienced about 1 or 2 dropped calls also. Other than that this app serves its purpose and allows me to keep in contact with those that matter..Version: 3.9.5
Great App. =)I was needing an app so that I could use my phone until I had the funds to get it turned back on. Well I came across this one I’m glad I downloaded it. It works wonderful! It lets you choose a local number. The text message feature is great. So far no complaints about it. I would definitely suggest it..Version: 3.13.1
Cool holdIt's a good app I like it it's better than most easy to use free not many problems at all is it is who complain I cant you should use it excellent app there are plenty of other apps out there no Habron little thing but this one for them fine just convenient for my use and I like it hopefully you do too thank you.Version: 3.9.8
Stephanie from OhioMy phone service totally was the worse service/customer service Ive ever experienced so I started using my home and work WiFi so I could use the Free Tone app. It’s clear it’s free and I love it! Plus I love that you can upgrade for just a one time low amount and pick between what extra service you might need! 💜 it..Version: 3.16.4

Pretty good, adding this option will make it better!It is a very good app. But you should definitely add an option like “watch 3 ads to see this massage” for the massages that cannot be seen unless bought for over 1 week. Adding this option will help a lot!.Version: 3.21.4

ExcellentStay that way little to no ads which is great all objectives complete very easy to use works well in phone 📱 or texting mode very highly recommended. Because of its user base friendly attributes as well as the helpful employees that send messages who are happy to assist another great place to get help is there unique help page! I would say this App is one the quickest and better apps for free/paid I have ever seen. Keep it up with the abilities to help users of your services is best way to make sure clients and customers stick around for years to come! Ads are gentle there around but not enough to cover the hell out your apps or screens which I hate so good job at keeping the adds low easy to bypass thanks 🙏 again blessings to the company and employees.Version: 3.15.4
