Text free 1/5
The reception seems to go out from time to time during a call the person I'm talking to says it sounds like I'm under water or it sounds staticky at times I really hate that part.
Got it to make calls while my phone is turned off. So far so good!
SAVED THE DAY!!! 5/5
Saved the day when my iPhone broke last night. Was able to use freetone to turn my iPad into a phone!! Brilliant!! Thank you so much.
Single worst texting and calling app I have ever seen 1/5
If you are looking for reliability use Talkatone it is much better.
Helpful App indeed but serious delays 3/5
I’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.
Pretty Cool and... 4/5
So far I like Free Tone because I don’t have to give my real mobile # out. I can give folks my Free Tone number and call them back or answer using my mobile phone!
problem with app 5/5
multiple instances of my texts on wifi appear on the text recipients phone— solve this problem and your app will kick butt!
911 Calls 1/5
911 calls should be permitted.
Works for me 5/5
Great app i recently started using my iPhone as an iPod and it’s a great feature
Don't Buy! 1/5
There is no dial pad to make a phone call!
What happened?!!!! 1/5
By what happen?!!!!
This WAS a amazing app. I just got a notification that it has logged me out of my account and I can’t log back in! What happened? Why did it log me out? Before I got logged out I had no problems with it, this made me really upset because I have unsaved contacts in my account. Is there anyway I can get my account back?
Keeps signing out and when I sign back in tells me it’s an error try again later please fix this could of given 5 stars
So unreliable 2/5
By Influxx Media
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
It's so helpful
Total BS 1/5
Nothing is free and seems shady
The service has been great 4/5
By Maliyah Faye
The service has been great and I Injoy using it
It won’t open ! 5/5
The app won’t open after it updated Help ! Charles
Good, but glitches 3/5
The app works really well, but sometimes when you’re texting the advertisement shows up under or on top of the text. The fix is easy: just go back to the app’s main screen & then choose text again, but it’s annoying.
Doesn't work correctly/too many ads 1/5
The only reason I use this app is to text friends who have android phones because I have an iPod and I can't text an android phone from iMessages. That is the SOLE reason I use this app. I hate it: that's why I'm writing a review. I never write reviews.
1 It can effectively text over wifi.
(Thought I'd start with the positive.)
1 I'll text a friend from this app and then go into another app or turn my iPod off and sometimes it won't send me a notification. So I won't see that I have a message until I go into the app which may be a half hour later since I didn't know that they responded.
2 If I get one message, I can read two lines of it on my lock screen. If I get two or more, a single notification will show up and say "2 messages from Sandy" or however many messages there are from Sandy. But I can't read any of them on the lock screen. Highly irritating, let me tell you.
3 When I'm in another app and I get a message through Freetone and I pull down the banner to read it, but don't respond, there is still a red 1 next to the Freetone app on my home screen. The app souls register that the message has been read.
4 Almost every time I go into the app, it asks for a review. I want to talk to my friend, not leave you a review.
5 Ok, I get that the developer has to make money by putting ads in their app so stupid people click on them. Or you click on them by accident because the app is glitching. But the amount of ads in this app is outrageous. And for someone who is quite visual, it's like torture. There are banner ads at the top of my inbox which cannot be closed, and they're often video ads too. When I go into a conversation, immediately an ad pops up in my texting space right above my keyboard and takes up 1/3 of the screen. These ads cannot be closed. When the keyboard is up it takes up 3/4 of my texting space, which is annoying because I want to see what my friend said and type a response at the same time. Sometimes when I send a text, my keyboard will disappear and be replaced by an ad (which can be closed). Really!?! You possess the nerve to take away my keyboard too?
I use this app to talk to two friends three or four times a week for about half an hour each time. I'm not going to pay $10 to remove ads on an app I will no longer use when I get a phone in roughly four months. You had a nice crisp mint and white theme going and then you went and wrecked it with all these ads.
No free 1/5
If this is supposed to be free then why do I have to earn or buy credits ? What a joke moving on to better apps I would rate this a zero if I could
pretty gud 4/5
My only complaint is that the UI is kinda buggy, and that you have 3 apps that do litteraly the same thing, with the SAME account.
Horrible app does not work on iPad 5th gen 99% of time for incoming call, bug “fixes” weekly 1/5
This horrible app does not work right most of time. Constantly requires resetting by turning iPad off and on or completely restoring iPad from a backup. Incoming callers can not be heard at all.
Just starting. 5/5
Had for two days. Going over terms. Yes, free outbound calls and phone number. Maybe every area code. So far pretty good. Will update.
Downloaded then Uninstalled 1/5
Why does it give me an option to choose my area code .. but ends up giving me an choice to choose between ONLY 5,6 numbers with UNchangable friging area codes 🗣
My old phone number expired and I had to get a new number. The problem I’m having is my phone “skips” every other word I say while I’m on the phone. Since getting the new phone number this app has been the worse.
Doesn’t work! 2/5
This app sends messages and calls out, but will not receive any messages! Disappointing when you’re a single mother without a phone!
It keeps pressuring me to use it when I dont want to yet. If it's gonna do that it makes me think that they are gonna get private information from their users and is a big turn off for me.
Love it 5/5
Love phone sex 6197324637
This is awful I just got a few minutes ago! It says free but it's not if u had textme it gives u the same credits that u had on that! And if u run out of credits u have to PAY REAL MONEY!!!!! I really don't like this app and I can't find anything 😖 if u have any ideas I will be back in 2 days to see anything
I receive phone calls but hear nothing 1/5
Besides the design that tricks you into accidentally purchasing credits, the most egregious problem is that you cannot hear anything when you receive a call on your FreeTone Number. Please fix.
Free Tone 5/5
Love this app
Hope y’all don’t change anything, thank you
Perfect for iPad users 5/5
Ok so I use an iPad and can't keep in touch with friends or family but with this app I just call them and simply talk obviously but I've been using it for months now and I'm starting to think it's even better all the time I call my friend aiden or Ian or etc. but yes I love the app I totally recommend it
Dropped calls continuously 2/5
By Jon Julio
It’s been dropping a lot of calls lately
I love it working well for me two thumbs up.
😡deceivers deception lies 1/5
For 2 free credits they say to watch a video but at end of videos in order to actually get the credits you must download the crap each app whether it’s crap or not.
Unreliable for long 800 calls when you will be on hold a while. Other party will be unable to hear you.
FreeTone is FREE 5/5
I would definitely recommend this app to anyone, and it doesn't glitch, and there isn't any adds, also it is free to call, I have an iPod, so I can't call, and this app is free for calling and texting! 😊
Easy to use
The app works great but... 3/5
I came over from Sideline and I’m trying this app out. I’m almost willing to pay for the ad free version. Because the daily notifications about using free credits is super annoying. I get it. It’s a free app, but geez. 😔
I have never come access an app so intrusive and ADS laden!
What Happened?? 2/5
By Melanin Goddess😘
It use to be free to text any number now it’s 5 credits per text. What happened to unlimited????
FAKE APP 2/5
It's not free text please don't use this app they charge 5 credit for a text beware people
Updated to Newest Version 2/5
Now it seems that the app is no longer free, maybe for a year at best. What a rip off, should've stayed with the older version.
It works well 4/5
I have used it to make a few calls to test it. Only one person complained about the connection. After making 3 calls I still have all my credits. It really seems to be unlimited.
By kitty Galore😎
I love this app! My mom doesn’t have to pay for any texts or calls although it’s mainly for calls but they have a app that has free texts as well which is textme but the only bad thing is, is that you need WiFi to use is
Accidentally added credits 2/5
How do I undo the purchase of $1.99 I just did on accident? Will change rating once I get this fixed, if possible. Thank you!
My one issue with this app... 3/5
I’ve been using this app for a few years, and have grown a close bond to it. I am currently incapable of paying for a phone, so I use this app daily to text and keep in touch with friends. However, I recently discovered that my phone number is supposed to expire next month. I assume this is new, because I’ve never seen it before in the years I’ve been using FreeTone. It is rather frustrating, because I had no idea that my number was set to expire until today. Now I barely have enough time to notify my contacts of a change in my number...which brings me over to my next point. I can’t make a new number without paying for it even a month before my old one expires! How am I expected to notify anyone of my new number if I can’t even make one until it’s already expired- which entirely defeats the purpose. I’m sorry if I’m sounding rude, I’m just very frustrated. What I’ll probably end up doing is renewing for another year, and hopefully I’ll be able to afford paying for a cell phone and only have to use this as an alternative.
Despite that one complaint, I find this app to be pretty good.
Sorry for the lengthiness.
