Textfree users: Get Pinger EX for an even better texting experience! Plus, login with your Textfree account and get 20 FREE minutes!!!
Textfree by Pinger is a totally free app that lets people text free, and earn free minutes to make calls (if your'e on iOS), using either WiFi or a cellular data plan. Texting and picture messaging are paid for by our advertisers (that's why you see those banner ads in the app).
Calls go by minutes. You get 10 minutes to start when you choose a Textfree number. To get more minutes, you can download free apps, complete partner offers, or watch videos - all from within the app (these belong to our advertisers, who cover the cost of the minutes you earn). You also have the option to pay for minutes (at about 2 cents per minute). Incoming calls are FREE, and Textfree-to-Textfree calls are FREE.
Tap the "Keypad" icon on the top of Textfree:
This will bring up the Keypad. Tap the "minutes left" button on the Keypad (it's to the left of "call"):
You'll get a choice of earning free minutes or buying them:
