I note that Dingtone has a 4.4 star rating (same as Textnow) but Talkatone only has a 4.1 star rating, so Dingtone might be the better alternative.
Both specifically say they work with WiFi and mobile data. I'd be curious to know how much their "ad free" service costs in case I want to consider switching next year.
I'd also like to know if there is any part of their service that is NOT free. I've seen that some services like these will charge a (small) fee for receiving text messages. Also, some services say they have free calling and texting, but either (or both) are only free to other people who also have the same app. Calling people who don't have the app has a (small) cost. Just quickly reading through the Dingtone faq, it seems that this may be the case for Dingtone.
Sometimes it is difficult to figure out exactly what is free and what is not free until you actually install and use the app, so perhaps BigDaddy can give more details on the specifics.
I can tell you that TextNow is entirely free for placing/receiving calls and sending/receiving texts (both SMS and MMS) to/from anyone in the US and Canada regardless of whether or not they have the TextNow service as well.
"so perhaps BigDaddy can give more details on the specifics." lol
Sounds like someone does not like to eplore other alternatives, jealous(?) he did not find a better app, or is it "mine is the best, es todo no mas"?
What part of "They assign you a phone number and area code of your choice. I have never paid a dime to call Peru or the U.S.
Just download the app on your smart device and start calling and texting." do you not understand?
You, gringoland, seem to have a problem with being shown something better than you have found. Open your mind it is a great big world.
Why do you choose to degrade another mans choice of phones? quote"Even if you keep your Prism phone for some reason (????)," Why is that you business?
