US and Canadian Textfree and Pinger international texters:
 

What should I do?

Follow these instructions if you'd like to continue texting with your international friends:

  1. Check below for a list of countries we continue to support with free international texting.
  2. Send a text from Textfree or Pinger to your friends and test whether it's getting through.
  3. 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.

Please note that we have NO CONTROL over what countries are selected and that this list might change at any time:

Antigua and Barbuda

El Salvador

Paraguay

Argentina

Faroe Islands

Peru

Azerbaijan

Grenada

Puerto Rico

Barbados

Guam

Pinger is actively working with our SMS partners in order to negotiate lower pricing so we can once again offer you free texting to various international locations.

Unfortunately, as we have mentioned in our article, we do NOT control pricing and therefore cannot "choose" which countries to add or remove from our supported list.

Thank you for your patience in this matter.

T-mobile countries NOT working. Except USA where T-Mobile is still far away from monopol status. Pinter should try to connect locally to guys who build their own small free sms gateways.
