- Pinger: Turn Your iPod touch or iPad into a Phone
FREE SMS PLUS CALLING TO ANY PHONE
Pinger gives your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch free unlimited text messaging and 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.
TEXTING IS UNLIMITED; EARN MINUTES FOR FREE OUTBOUND CALLS
As always, texting is totally free and unlimited. Incoming calls are free. You get 10 free minutes to start, and then you earn minutes for additional free outbound calls. And if you run out of minutes, it's easy to buy super cheap minutes.
REAL PHONE NUMBER INCLUDED
You get your own real phone number that you can use to call and SMS any phone number in the US and Canada, even if you don’t have a calling plan.
ALSO AVAILABLE IN iTUNES
Get 60 minutes of free outbound calling when you download our premium Pinger App called “Pinger EX”. Free for a limited time!
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.
