Make sure your device rings when you get a text or call
by enabling notifications for Pinger!

What is a Notification?
Pinger uses Apple’s Push Notification Service to send you alerts when you are outside of the app. Your device will show you a pop-up (and usually play a sound) to let you know that a new message has arrived.

Why don’t I get Notifications?
When you first set up Pinger we asked if it’s ok to alert you about new messages. Sometimes users decline the option by mistake (you aren’t alone, we’ve accidentally done it too). This is the most common reason that people don’t get Notifications.

How do I turn Notifications on?
You’ll need to go into the settings of your iOS device to turn Notifications back on. We have a couple of helpful tips below, and detailed instructions plus screen shots can be found on this Support page.

  • Make sure you’re using iOS 4.0 or later and have the latest version of Pinger.
  • Turn your ringer volume ALL the way up while IN the app.
  • Is your device jailbroken? Sorry, notifications won’t work!

We gave Textfree such a huge upgrade, we had to give it a new name: Pinger.  Keep your Textfree number and minutes, plus get new awesome features.

It’s faster, more reliable and easier to use.

  • Pinger’s intuitive new photo-based interface organizes each contact’s messages–text, voice, and even pictures–into a single screen. Personalize your contact Tiles with Facebook pics.
  • Record your own voicemail greeting.
  • Got friends around the world? Have them download Pinger too! It’s supported in more than 100 countries!

Download the app FREE to your iPod or iPhone in the US, or outside the US!

Upgrading from Textfree to Pinger? No problem!

Hope you guys love it as much as we do :)

A Pinger employee noticed some exciting activity as they went past the office this weekend…

Sure enough, we arrived Monday morning to see our brand new Pinger sign outside.
What a great start to the week!
