    You can thank petraeus for being an idiot and not helping after you're done reading my post

    With text free unlimited, you need to have a wi-fi connection

    all you gotta do is have the persons cell in ur contacts app and thatll import it into the app

    u simply choose a persons cell from the list and type to em

    its real time texting but absolutely free

    they can text you back

    you MUST have wifi so yeah

    i dont even use my cell phone for texting anymore

    PM me if u need any help

    Does textfree work in the uk ?? reason I ask is I have just d/loaded this app and tried to use it tonight but when I try and enter a uk mobile number off 11 digits a pop up box advises me to enter just ten digits which makes me believe it could be intended for no uk mobiles ??

    No, instead, buy Textnow Unlimited.
    It's the best texting application out there.

    Sends and receives SO much faster than Textfree.

    On top of that, you can link a Google Voice account up to it to have your own phone number for texting, instead of an email address you would be stuck with in Textfree.

    PM me if you buy it!

    on whatever you chose, google voice or text free, download 3G unrestrictor from cydia. it will allow you to use apps that only run on wifi such as text free and it will run with edge/3G. so free texting anywhere you want and if you use a voip app, free calls.

    And by the way, you don't download google voice. You have to join it. Here's a link to get an invitation to it: Google Voice

    Okay thanks for the link, being advised that Google voice is only available to us residents, this 100% the case ??
