- Text Free with Textfree: SMS with a Real Phone Number
"The fastest, most reliable and easiest to use."
- New York Times
UNLIMITED FREE TEXTS AND PICS
Textfree gives your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch free unlimited text messaging to any phone, including landlines and non-smartphones, in the US and Canada. Your friends don’t need Textfree to receive -- they don’t even need to have a smartphone.
INCOMING CALLS ALWAYS FREE; EARN MINUTES FOR FREE OUTBOUND CALLS
Incoming calls from anyone, anywhere in the world are always free. Plus make free or cheap calls to anyone in the US and Canada. You get 10 free minutes to start. Earn minutes for additional free outbound calls. And if you run out of minutes, it's easy to buy them super cheap.
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.
TURN YOUR iPOD TOUCH OR iPAD INTO A PHONE
Give your new number to friends so they can text and call you. Calls on WiFi sound better than any mobile.

BETTER THAN THOSE MESSENGER APPS
With Textfree you can call or text any phone number, even if they don’t have the app, even if they don’t have a smartphone!
• Call or text your grandmother’s non-smartphone in Minneapolis.
• Call any restaurant in New York to make reservations.
• Text a co-worker in Dallas or Toronto as much as you want.
Unlike “those messenger apps” where both people have to be using the app, Textfree works with ANY phone: smart phone, basic phone, even a land line.
NO NEED FOR MULTIPLE TEXTING & CALLING APPS
Now you don’t need to know what messenger apps your friends, family or co-workers use. Textfree does it all. Your texts are 100% free. Pics are 100% free. Incoming calls are 100% free. Earn free minutes for outbound calls to any phone in the US and Canada, or buy ‘em real cheap. It’s that simple.
TEXTFREE IS MORE THAN A MESSENGER
When your friends have Textfree, 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.
