Traveling outside the US:
While we do allow you to use Textfree abroad, many countries are blocked due to high spam abuse, therefore not all countries are supported.
If you experience any trouble with messaging or calling when traveling, please contact support.
How to use the app while traveling:
- Device Settings
- Turn airplane mode on (to avoid any international data-roaming fees)
Items to note:
- Anytime you have WiFi, you can use Textfree to get a hold of your friends/family while abroad.
- Remember: Calls to or from your friends on Textfree are free. Incoming calls are free too.
If you would like to make outgoing calls, please visit our help site article: How to earn or purchase calling minutes for more information.
Will my friends get charged international fees?
Since Textfree gives you a US phone number, you can use the app and your friends/family at home won't be charged for international fees when you're abroad. In this case, only their standard texting and calling rates will apply.
If you have further questions, please submit a request.
