International calls can be extremely expensive. Thankfully, there are many apps that let you create a free US number, then use it to make and receive calls via Wi-Fi or cellular data.
Each of these apps assigns you a free phone number (in the US) that you can use to call or text any other American number, and it will behave like you are in the US. They will not use your cell minutes or SMS text messages.
Apps - Android - IOS
Here are the best free calling apps for Android and iOS.
Talkatone has been around for a while and is one of the most well-known real calling apps on this list. It’s gone through a lot of changes over the years, but now it offers unlimited free calls and texts to any number within the US and Canada. You can buy also credits to make international calls; those rates vary.
Features - Custom - Voicemail - Greetings - Passcode
It’s packed full of features such as custom voicemail greetings, passcode protection (so no one else can access the app), and call blocking.
Talkatone handles the basics with ease, and the one-time $10 purchase to remove banner ads is inexpensive compared to some of the subscription models in this list. Its interface is straightforward, modern, and a breeze to navigate.
App - Place - US - Canada - Options
Ultimately, the app is a good place to start if you want to try calling to the US or Canada for free and aren’t really sure what options are available.
TextNow also offers free calls and texts to the US and Canada, but with a slightly different design and much more customization. The app has a menu that slides in from the left side, and you can change the theme’s colors to match your needs.
Texts - Computer - Bonus - Apps - List
It even lets you sync your texts with your computer; this is a huge bonus when compared to the other apps on this list.
