Free phone calls and text messages
When the internet came to mobile phones, it also brought a series of alternatives to the classic SMS messages and phone calls, such as instant messaging apps or voice calls using the VoIP protocol that already existed on PCs. And among all these, we have the one offered by TextNow, an app that lets you make calls and send unlimited SMS messages and, best of all, for free.
Save money on your calls and text messages
This app lets you make phone calls and send text messages free of charge. All you need is an active data connection or access to a wifi network as it uses the internet to function, but it allows you to call any operator, whether or not the person has the app installed on their phone. It also lets you have an additional telephone number chosen by the user, something that can be very useful for separating, for example, personal communications from professional communications.
These are the main features offered by this app for free phone calls:
- Possibility of sending and receiving calls.
- Activities proposed by the app to earn credits.
- Unlimited and free voice calls with other users.
- Messaging with support for multimedia files.
- Voice mail.
- Wide range of emoticons for text messages.
- Different ringtones for calls and notifications.
- Quick response function.
- Possibility to add your signature to messages.
Now, all free things have a drawback. In this case, it is the number of ads you will have to watch, but that also has a solution, you can opt for the paid version. There are also surcharges for calls to users who do not use the app or to foreign countries, although the prices are quite low. Finally, it should be noted that this service is only available in certain countries, such as the United States and Canada. However, you can use a VPN app to access it from another location.
