It’s a great app and all. Very useful for me. However, when someone is calling me I never get notifications about it. So I’m always missing the call. And sometimes the app is slow, idk if it’s just my phone but yeah it does that. So a lot of random numbers call me and spams too. I hope this can be fixed!
Privacy question 3/5
Why is Talkatone pulling contacts. That doesn’t have numbers from the contacts app..
Why is that necessary.
TERRIBLE CUSTOMER SERV 1/5
Paid for the sub Switched phones and attempted to retrieve the app with all contacts but it does not allow me to authenticate with the same info I use to all my apps. Contacted customer support only to get an automated response, 2 days later a “human” replied to me with the same message from the said automated machine. At this point for me if customer service is garbage I wouldn’t want to deal with them for anything in the future. Advice for the dev team: FIRE YOUR HELPDESK agents they are not putting effort to resolve premium member issues. A large chunk of customers will leave you. Not interested in moving forward with anyone from talkatone to get this issue resolved. No need to waste time.
New Happy User 5/5
I’m so happy this was recommended for me! I work overseas and can’t dial long-distance without incurring expensive phone fees. This fixed my problem quite elegantly, and is very much appreciated! The subscription for no ads is very affordable and I will use this service when I return to the States.
Hard Times C-19/2020’ 5/5
I am very grateful for the opportunity of this great service.
I know a lot of the world is going through hard time’s, trying and sad times,
We can only move forward together as one for better ones.
If I wouldn’t have this app, I would not have been able to talk to my kids and my only granddaughter.
For that alone, it makes my hard times seen a little softer🙏❤️🙏
Thank You so much for this free phone app.
Even when I am able to pay my bill, I know I can keep you for security ❤️
I love it... but there is some problems 4/5
By tessa herlihy
This is a really good app.
I have a iPod... it is nice that it gives you a phone number and can text people who have an android.
I am really thankful for it
But it is really glitchy and has some ads but other than that
This App is outstanding to be a FREE APP!!!! 4/5
By Ms. Hot Pants Pam
I rated it a 4 star because most of the time when it rings it will stop ringing before I can get into the app so therefore I missed all my calls and I have to call back but it is a get out to be free. It just needs a little work done to it or it don’t lock up so quick or your face can can open it or something but basically it’s a very good app I’ve enjoyed it and I will continue to enjoy it is the second time I’ve had it and I love it oh most. Thanks and God Bless
Dr Ezzaat aziz 5/5
You are the very best thanks
Sign in doesn’t work and tech support doesn’t respond 1/5
I’ve tried multiple ways to create an account but none of them work. Tech support doesn’t respond either. If anything goes wrong don’t expect a response. Find a different app!
The worst WiFi ever 5/5
By JP Palmer
Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t most horrible at app I ever dealt with you get 0 stars
So far so good 5/5
I’ve been looking for an app that is actually free to use and I believe this one is for local calls which is all I need! It sounds great on calls and all.
Perfect for iPad
This app is bad when i first got it it was good then a week later i tried to send verification codes an they didn’t send also at the top air says missing messages visit this web or sum like that so i think this app does it on purpose
Only issue I have is being hard to hear when ringing & have to put phone on speaker when having phone conversations in order to hear , other than that being in dispute with AT&T my regular carrier about their high cost .
I’ve gone from hundreds of dollars to affordable.
It really needs a login and log out feature
My fav 5/5
I love this app i wish i could keep it activated with no wifi
Thx very much 5/5
It is for free thx very much i love use this fone for free. Around the world thx gor tge team talkatone
By srg Dee ty ok ritz
I’m sitting here with my phone IN MY HAND and 3 important calls did NOT come thru. I was connected to WIFI. I did not realize they called until I checked the APP! Phone didn’t even ring! All this time wasted waiting on these calls now I have to call back and be out in the back of the line again!
Works good up to a point 2/5
This app drops calls after an hour and ten minutes. It is frustrating to be in a conference or Sunday worship and the call drops before the sessions are completed. I believe that all calls should last as long as needed.
Don’t work 😠😠😠
Love it great app to have 5/5

I give it a 2/5 2/5
By Madison Leonora
I give it a 2/5 because it works great but random people keep calling me and I can’t send videos I’d rather pay 25 bucks a month for service than use this app
Call/SMS receiver MUST have app installed? This is new. 1/5
Can't send/receive SMS for "unbalanced activity"... Never needed my contacts to have any version of this app before. Also, notification messages... why did that stop working? Nvm, I've deleted you.
By satisfied program user
So far this works just fine. No issues
Wow! What a great app. 5/5
I love this app. It is better than my phone. The audio is great!
The volume is clear. So convenient to use. So easy to use.
Terrible Over seas 1/5
I’m in japan and have to make a call to a 1 (800) number for a flight back home, because I have a Japanese number it would cost me a fortune to call. This app doesn’t even connect most of the time and when it does, the connection is so bad it’s mostly cutting out.
Very unstable, dropped calls 1/5

By TeeTee Dastylist
I use to use this app and I loved it but now I can’t say the same. My txt message , the sms doesn’t work and I keep having issues with hearing some calls good.
Best Free Text/Calling App 5/5
This is by far the best free app I have used. The pandemic has left me jobless, my phone and internet turned off, and recently my car taken. You could say it’s been rough for my husband and I. This app has allowed me to at least have contact with the outside world again when I’m able to acquire free WiFi or at a friends house. The interface is very easy to use and clean. The adds are in no way disruptive which is totally amazing compared to the other apps. The best feature by far is the FREE calling. I don’t have to buy minutes- and right now I’m struggling to even feed my self so having a tool that is free for me to use has been a blessing. Thank you Talkatone for everything you do!
Couldn’t even sign up to use the app, kept getting an error when I tried to sign up with my phone number
Awesome easy to use and it’s all white people using it
The Greatest 5/5
I really enjoy the quality of the calls also the accuracy and speedy delivery of my text messages.. Over all I am extremely satisfied and pleased with the app.
Constantly crashing... won’t reliably send texts. All of a sudden you get all the texts people have sent you at once.
It would deserve 5 stars. 2/5
The only problem I really have with it that I still can’t use it in a smaller window like it used to work, I love this app it’s amazing but it definitely needs a whole rework for iPadOS 14.
It doesn’t work 1/5
I downloaded it signed in with my Google account it won’t let me use it it won’t even let me login I don’t get i just don’t
Total garbage 1/5
I keep getting error message everytime
No contact names 4/5
So far I love this app. But I have lost all my contact names and can not find a way to put them back so all I see is the phone number with no way of knowing who it is.
It is a great app for me
Call dropped three times during an interview 1/5
By Kaylah Bozman
The title explains it all. Call dropped three times during an interview. Won’t be using this again that’s for sure.
Bad Experience: Unreliable And No Customer Support 1/5
By Great Games And All
I am a veteran who went back to school to obtain a graduate degree. I graduated this August. The past year, I have been working unpaid internships to get my clinical classes and hours completed. When I started running out of money during that time, I cut my cell phone plan and went to this option.
I opted for the paid subscription version to maintain the number for my internships (more professional).
My first round of issues with this app was when I was trying to get medication refilled that is necessary for me: When I tried to make calls, the app would crash. I emailed support. A few days later I got a response to please give step-by-step issues with what was happening and steps I had taken myself to resolve the issue, which I had already done. I replied with exactly that and received no support.
As a workaround, during that time I just drove to the pharmacy, requested refills in person, and then later drove back to pick them up.
Also during that time, however, had I found myself in need of VA services, such as counseling or crisis, or had a vet I sponsor try to call or text me, I would have been unable to use it.
The issue resolved itself somehow and the app eventually worked and stopped crashing.
Now, since graduation, I have been interviewing for jobs. A very well-paying job I interviewed for ($45/hour + other benefits) tried to call me post-interview. I realized that for some reason the app suddenly was not notifying of incoming calls. It only showed missed calls and voicemail notifications. I uninstalled, reinstalled, checked all my phone settings. Nothing worked. I did find through trouble shooting with the help of my girlfriend that the app will only ring on incoming calls if the app is actively open (it will not if it is open in the background).
I filled out a support ticket on September 3rd and received an email response that I do not have an account with Talkatone. I clearly do, because I have an active Talkatone number and pay a subscription fee.
So I instead emailed support on September 3rd with all of my account information and a detailed explanation of the problems I am having. As of the date of this review, I have not received a response.
In order to get potential employers to connect with me, I have had to arrange a specific time for a call and then leave the app open while I wait for their call.
I did get the job I worked hard to obtain, so after my first couple of checks, I can drop this service.
So, all of this said, if you’ve made it this far in my review, I’ll sum up that this is a solution for a plan if you’re in a pinch, but it is unreliable in terms of voice call features, and the support is absolutely unhelpful and/or nonexistent.
Text always worked for me, including text notifications, so if that is all you need, this might work for you; though, personally, I would recommend, and I recommend to any vets I work with, find a different free service with active and helpful customer support.
With the help of the Veteran’s Administration, we are working to file a complaint against Talkatone with Apple and get it removed from the App store. It is simply unsafe for vets in crisis to use an app like this, particularly with unhelpful, unavailable, and unresponsive customer support.
Last, google Talkatone, as well. These issues are not uncommon. The plethora of 5-star amazing reviews are probably stacked with fake reviews.
That said, good luck, and be aware.
No sirve 1/5
No deja registrarte solucionen eso
Won’t send or I can’t receive messages 2/5
The messages being sent are EXTREMELY delayed. It’s very disappointing because it was working just fine yesterday. I can’t even have a conversation without it not fully sending text messages. Or for some reason sending them twice, I’m even paying to have the adds removed and everything. This isn’t cool whatsoever.
Love it 5/5
Greatest phone app ever!
