Talkatone App Introduction

I guess some of my blog readers already got the Fido 3GB-$15/month deal + the FREE LG G Pad III, just like me. Do you want to turn your tablet into a "phone"? I would like to introduce the App I am currently using: Talkatone (I am NOT paid to write this blog...).

Talkatone is a smartphone App. I know it long time ago, when it is still with Google voice (no Canadian phone number available from Talkatone that time). Now, you can get a Free Canadian phone number in your area code (for most of the Canadian provinces..., not all) from Talkatone.

Talkatone is currently available for Android and iOS in the following App Stores:
  • Australia
  • Canada
  • Germany
  • Great Britain
  • Japan
  • Mexico
  • New Zealand
  • Republic of Korea
  • Singapore
  • South Africa
  • United States of America
Users in any of these countries will get a free US or Canadian phone number, and free unlimited calling to US & Canadian numbers.

Talkatone lets you call and text any US/Canadian phone over WiFi or Data (3G/4G/LTE) for FREE. From my experiences, the call quality using Talkatone over Data is quite good. And its free text is definitely better than Fongo. You can also call internationally, but you need to buy or earn credits from Talkatone.

Note: If you haven't used Talkatone to call or text for a period of 30 days, your Talkatone account will be debited 20 paid credits to keep your number active. If you haven't been active for 30 days and you have less than 20 credits on your account your number will be deactivated and returned. You will get a notification, before that happens, to give you a chance to make a call or text to maintain your number assigned to your account.
