Note: Recent update of the app, killed call ringing on the phone. Calls no longer ring on the phone. Only get a missed called notification pop-up. When the issue was reported, Fongo fixed it very quickly. Kudos to their team.
Not working nobody can call me .. massages not coming can’t transfer my number back fully garbage
My fiancé works in Canada 6 of 12 months every year. This wonderful app gives us the ability to talk to each other truly talk for as long as we want. Without any more expense. You must have access to wifi is the only reason I did not give it a 5 star. I only purchased the $4.99 basic app. For 6 weeks we have talked an the average of 2.5hrs per call some days 2-3 times a day. With me being in the US I can even call his work, as long as it is a Canadian number, for free. If we could use Internet and not just wifi it would be the perfect mist affordable way to make international calls. Thank you 'fongo' DG
