How often does this happen with their reliability? Thinking of porting over but if this is a frequent issue then I may think otherwise.
It's rare. Last time Fibernetics, Fongo's parent company, had an issue that I know of was on October 8th, 2015, and the problem was resolved by 8 a.m.

It said that even when the problem existed. Rather, they didn't change system notice to indicate a problem.
It's also possible that when the problem existed it was localized to a single router rather than a system wide outage. Their engineering people didn't know that at the time so they started with the broader assumption.

Do you happen to work for them? You're in Waterloo. I can forward all my future complaints to you. Winking Face
If not, I could complain to you, and you could just pop over and complain to them for us. Smiling Face With Open Mouth And Smiling Eyes

Fongo Mobile server, 162.213.111.27, wasn't working.

voip.freephoneline.ca, voip2.freephoneline.ca, and voip4.freephoneline.ca weren't responding either.

Nope. Nor for TextNow, also in Waterloo.

Feel free. But you'll find that my communications reliability is a lot lower than theirs ;)

Or you could forward your feedback directly to them on Fongo User Forums.

I was joking, but for Fongo Mobile users, they're typically more responsive via https://support.fongo.com/hc/en-us/requests/new

Can I somehow port out all my SMS conversations to another device? Apparently the SMS conversations are saved locally on the device. Any way to move them? According to Fongo FAQ there is no export function, backup-restore, but I'm thinking I might be able to copy the Fongo folder to the new device?

Want to install a custom ROM on my Nexus 4 but I don't want to lose any of my convo's. want to use the tablet instead.
Titanium backup, works well to keep the conversations within the Fongo app on a fresh setup, not to move them to another app

So restoring the backup to another device that has fongo installed would not work?

It should as long as you're using TiB

I believe TiB requires root doesn't it? I don't think the LG G PAD III has any bootlock unlocking options.

Fongo stopped free calls from Canada to USA.

Which other apps do you recommend for free Calls to US?

Thanks

Oh? They never offered free calling to the US. AFAIK it was always free only to Canadian numbers,

Has anyone used Fongo on iPhone 7? Not sure if there were any hardware audio codec changes from iPhone SE to iPhone 7 Plus.

I'm thinking of getting the iPhone 7 Plus but want to make sure Fongo works just as well (if not better) on both devices.

I have fongo on iPhone with Fido data only sim. Outgoing calls are fine, however I can't hear anything on incoming calls, just dead silence... still have no clue how to fix it...


Is there a way to integrate fongo on your iPhone dialer or can you only dial with the fongo app?
