While we do allow you to use TextFree abroad, many countries are blocked due to high spam abuse, therefore not all countries are supported.
To use the app while traveling:
- Go to your device 'Settings'
- Turn airplane mode on (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 for international fees when you're abroad. In this case, only their standard texting and calling rates will apply.
