While we allow you to use TextFree while abroad, the country you're currently visiting may be blocked due to high spam abuse, thus TextFree may not work.
To use the app while traveling:
- Visit your device's Settings
- Enable Airplane Mode (to avoid any international data-roaming fees)
Important items to note:
- Anytime you have WiFi, you can use TextFree to get a hold of your friends/family while abroad
- Calls to or from your friends on TextFree are free
- Incoming calls are free
If you would like to make outgoing calls, please visit our help site article: How to earn or purchase calling minutes for more information.
Will my friends get charged international fees?
Since TextFree gives you a US phone number, you can use the app, and your friends/family at home won't be charged international fees when you're abroad. In this case, only their standard texting and calling rates will apply.
