Send text messages to any mobile number with a Fongo Texting Add-on. You will also be able to send and receive Picture Messages (MMS) to/from non-Fongo numbers, and receive supported verification texts. Incoming text messages are always free from regular phone numbers.
How To Purchase
To subscribe to Unlimited Texting, tap the shopping cart in the app, and select the Unlimited Texting package that meets your needs (Canada or Global). You can then select a 1, 3, or 6 month subscription for this package.
You can also purchase Texting add-ons by logging in to your account online.
Once your purchase is complete, the status of the package on the Add-on Features screen will change from “Not Subscribed” to “Expires in: XX Days”. You will receive a notification when you have 7 days remaining in your subscription, and again when you have 1 day remaining.
If you purchase an additional Unlimited Texting package before your current subscription expires, the additional days will be added to your existing subscription.
Restrictions and Limitations:
- You cannot send more than 10 messages to non-Fongo numbers within a 1 minute span. If you exceed 10 messages per minute, you may be subjected to a 20 minute temporary block. If you continue sending messages while you are blocked, the block will be continually extended. Users who repeatedly violate this policy may be permanently blacklisted from sending SMS outside of the Fongo network.
- Please note that Fongo Mobile supports incoming Picture Messages (MMS) and supports a small set SMS Short Codes at this time.
- Outbound MMS messages require Fongo Plus, if you do not have Fongo Plus your picture message will be sent as a Fongo Media Message.
- SMS message sent from new accounts (less than 1mo old and not a number transferred in from another carrier) may have a notice appended to the end stating that the message was sent using Fongo. This is solely for the purpose of protecting the recipient of the message from Fraud/Scams.
