US and Canadian Textfree and Pinger international texters:
As of July 31, 2012, texts to phone numbers in those countries won't be delivered. However, you will still be able to receive texts from those countries!
What should I do?
Follow these instructions if you'd like to continue texting with your international friends:
Check below for a list of countries we continue to support with free international texting.
Send a text from Textfree or Pinger to your friends and test whether it's getting through.
If your test message didn't go through, their carrier or country is not supported. So have your friends on iOS or Android phones download and install our awesome new Pinger app from the iTunes App Store or Google Play.
Pinger is available all over the world and you can text each other free as much as you want when you both have the app. Call free on iOS too! Free calling is coming to Android soon.
The list below contains the countries (outside of the US and Canada) that we are currently able to offer you free texting to.
We would love to support as many countries as possible, but due to outside considerations, this is a list of who we are able to currently support. This list will be updated as our supported countries are updated.
Antigua and Barbuda
Saint Kitts and Nevis
Taiwan, Province of China
Trinidad and Tobago
British Virgin Island
India (limited carriers)
Turks and Caicos Islands
United Arab Emirates
Northern Mariana Islands
We hope you continue to enjoy Pinger, and we apologize for any inconvenience.
