Textfree with Voice is skyrocketing in the App Store as we type. Fans are really excited about the free MMS and improved voice service. What else is new and exciting about Textfree with Voice? Lots of stuff you’ve been asking for, and even some goodies you haven’t!


  • The only app with free texting, MMS AND free incoming calls. That’s right, incoming calls never burn your minutes!
  • Free Textfree-to-Textfree calls.
  • Option to buy Textfree minutes real cheap, or earn them for free.
  • Now you can lock your app in portrait mode, so you can text while lying in bed and Textfree won’t move around on you.
  • You can keep your notifications private by being alerted that a new text has arrived, without the message text popping up on your screen.
  • We added lots of new ringtones so you can know who’s calling without even looking at your screen.
  • Better multitasking support so you can switch out of Textfree even when you’re on a call, and receive texts and calls when not in the app.
  • Bluetooth support for iPhone users
  • Plus you still get a real phone number in Textfree!

We’re really excited, and can’t wait to continue delighting you with new features and improvements!
