IS IT REALLY FREE?
Yep, Textfree Lite lets you send texts for free to US mobile numbers. The Lite version does have ads, and you’ll have a daily message limit (15 a day for now—hey it's free!). The paid version, Textfree Unlimited, removes daily message limits and eliminates ads.
CAN IPOD TOUCH USERS SEND TEXTS?
Yes! Make sure you’re on WiFi to send and receive text messages.
HOW DO I GET NOTIFIED OF NEW MSGS?
Just turn Notification ON in Options to be notified of new texts via email. This works even when you’re not in the app or your screen is off. Be sure to go to the iPhone/iPod touch Settings app and turn your New Mail sound ON.
SHOULD I UPGRADE TO "TEXTFREE UNLIMITED”?
If you're a heavy texter, Textfree Unlimited might be right for you. It does away with the daily message limits and ads that are in Textfree Lite. Textfree Unlimited messages also get priority for faster delivery.
CAN I ADDRESS PEOPLE IN MY CONTACTS?
Easy as ABC. Just type a few letters of the name and instantly find people in your Contacts to text. If you don't see the QWERTY keyboard, touch the ABC button.
REALLY IMPORTANT STUFF
If people send a new message _to your mobile number_, it will come as a regular text and normal charges will apply. To make these messages free, get your friends on Textfree and turn on the “Textfree to Textfree” feature in Options.
Your friends not on Textfree still pay normal charges for texts sent and received. Nothing extra, just whatever they've been paying for texts.
We hate spam as much as you do. Pinger reserves the right to limit the number of messages sent to ensure no spam is sent using Textfree.
