Textfree Web - FAQs & How-to's

What happened to Pinger Desktop?

In September 2015, Textfree Web took it's place. The main difference? Textfree Web lets you chat from your web browser instead of a downloaded desktop application. That means you can access your Textfree account from any computer with Internet access. Plus, the updated design makes it faster and easier to send texts! 

You can even use your same username/phone number and password to login to Textfree for Web!
