textPlus Ushers in a New Class of Mobile Service Provider

With the proliferation of free WiFi in major US cities and support in restaurants, hotels, and malls, textPlus users are changing their relationship with their phone company: namely ditching them.

"US and international users of textPlus are increasingly covered by WiFi," said Scott Lahman, Founder and CEO of textPlus. "Our users are reaping the benefits of WiFi calling and texting to save big on traditional carrier contracts or ending their contracts altogether."

textPlus, the first WiFi-generation phone company delivers full carrier capability in an application. The company provides users with a phone number and unlimited texting at no charge in the US and Canada, no-charge texting and calling to 60 million other textPlus users, and calling to any number domestically or internationally for just pennies. Service is designed for smartphones and tablets and is available over WiFi and 3G / 4G for Apple, Android, and Windows devices.

textPlus provides ongoing free-calling programs to any number in the US or Canada in addition to unlimited texting. “textPlus has implemented unlimited calls to any number in the US and Canada on Thursday evenings (8-11pm PDT) in a program called textPlus After Dark,” says Nanea Reeves, COO and President. “textPlus After Dark and free calling on major holidays, such as July 4th, have been a big hit with our user base. We are dedicated to making communication more affordable and free calling is just one tool in our toolkit.”

Because service is available over WiFi, textPlus offers the opportunity to untether from your carrier and embrace the All-WiFi way of life. Visit for more about textPlus news, promotions, and the All-WiFi way of life.
