Metro PCS Joyn App allows WiFi calling. Thoughts?
Friday 01st of February 2013
So i downloaded the app, works AWESOME for WiFi calling, its easy on the battery when running in the background (which is an enormous plus), and allows video chatting as well (with other people using the Joyn app).My only gripe with this as it sits is no WiFi texting, which is a big deal for me because i get shitty service at my house. Once they add WiFi texting this will be one of my favorite apps ever...Thoughts?

FREE texting over wifi; but keep number
Saturday 11th of January 2014
I have used a variety of wifi texting services like Heywire, Textfree, etc. The problem is that I am assigned a new number. I don't have data, so even though I might explain to people to text me on my mobile carrier's number (I get free incoming) so that I can receive it wherever I am, they always end up getting confused and texting my wifi texting number and then wonder why I don't receive it right away (because I might not be connected to wifi when they send it).I need an app that can text over wifi (so I can avoid charges) but uses MY phone number. Even if it doesn't actually use my phone number, I don't care. But as long as it forces the person getting the message to reply back to my mobile carrier number.I tried mysms, as well as ChompSms, etc; but they all charge to send over wifi to users that don't have the app. And What'sApp and others like it forces the end user to also have the app.The fact that there are apps like mysms and ChompSms that send sms messages over wifi with your own phone number to anyone that can receive sms shows that it's possible.Does anyone know of a COM
how to use wifi for text+calling when you don't have signal?
Thursday 20th of March 2014
I always heard you can do this but I cant figure out how or what app to use. I have good service but in my apartment its really bad and when texting or placing a call I literally have to walk all over my room toggling air plane mode to get a bar to just send a text message! but i do have a great wifi connection, so is it possible to use my wifi connection to send texts/calls when I'm in my apartment? I found a few VOIP/wifi texting apps, but they want you to use THEIR number and THEIR APP to do all the texting/calling and I don't want to do that... Any other option? thanks
Is Wifi Texting available for the Galaxy S5 Active using AT&T
Wednesday 10th of September 2014
I have had my GS5 for about three weeks and love it, but I cannot send SMS via Wifi. Is this an AT&T problem? An issue with my phone? Or do I need a different texting app/platform? Some forums suggest turning off Wifi Calling in Settings/More Networks, but that selection is not available in mine. Others have suggested AT&T and other companies are trying to suppress the feature. Does anyone out there have a definitive answer one way or the other?

I just moved to a new apartment and have no reception in my room, which is in the basement. I got a Google Voice number + Groove IP for calls. I don't mind having a different number for them because I almost never use the phone. The problem is texting, which I use constantly. I read that GoSMS Pro can be used to send texts via WiFi with my number, but I have not had any success with it. Can anyone recommend an app for WiFi texting that uses my T-Mobile number?
