Thanks for all the great feedback and love we’ve been receiving, Pingsters! However…there can only be one winner each Friday!

We’d like to give a shout out to our new buddy, Adam S. Here’s part of the epic email he sent us:

“I just want to thank you for making such a wonderful product. I’m very anti cell phone and your product gives me a way to have a “textable” landline. I use my iPod, and it becomes a phone whenever I want it to be (around wifi) and it’s an unobtrusive iPod whenever I don’t want to be called (pretty much anytime outside the home). I loved how you started with downloading apps and getting minutes. I used your product for a whole year as my only means of communication and it cost me nothing during a very low income spell. Now I have a full-time job and I gladly support your shift to sell minutes for the person who uses more than just a few….and I thank you ever so much for the new voicemail feature, it’s amazing…Thanks again for a wonderful product, and keep up the good work. I think I’ll go into the app store or whatever and find out where I can rate you with 5 stars.”

Adam, you’ve got some minutes coming your way! Thanks for everything.

Easy fix!

First, make sure you are logged in to Textfree Voice + VM.  (If you’re still logged in to the old version of Textfree, you won’t get your voicemail notifications.)

You’ll also want to make sure you have Notifications set to “ON” in Settings.  Go to your Settings app (not in Textfree) then Notifications.  Scroll down to Textfree and make sure Alert Style is set to either “Banners” or “Alerts”.

You’ll never miss another message again!

Don’t have Textfree Voice + VM? Get it free in the iTunes App Store.

Yup, you read that right! There’s a new Textfree app in town and it’s got FREE voicemail.

It’s got all the good stuff from Textfree with Voice like:

  • Your own real phone number (free)
  • Unlimited SMS and picture messaging (still free)
  • Textfree-to-Textfree calls (super free)
  • Incoming calls (really really free)
  • The ability to earn minutes for outgoing calls (you get it)

But you asked for it, and you now got it: FREE voicemail too!
