Looking for instructions on how to call or text international numbers with Pinger? Go here.
Traveling outside the US
You can still use Pinger!
Pinger uses the internet to work. Just switch your device to airplane mode (don't want to get crazy international data-roaming fees!). Anytime you have WiFi, be it free in your hotel or paid in a cafe, you can use Pinger to text or call your friends at home.
Remember: calls to or from your friends on Pinger are free! Incoming calls are free too! Want to make outgoing calls? Just grab some minutes!
Will my friends get charged international fees?
Never fear! Because Pinger gives you a US or Canadian phone number, you can use Pinger and your friends at home WON'T get international fees when you're abroad! Only their standard texting and calling rates will apply. Pretty sweet, isn't it? :)
