HOW WE MAKE FONGO FREE

Fongo is disrupting the mobile communications world with one simple concept: Free. We make use of advances in technology, an innovative business model and word-of-mouth marketing, and pass the savings on to you (so tell your friends!). Our revenue comes from optional add-on features, pre-paid worldwide calling credits, and in-app ads.

FONGO IS NEW

Hundreds of thousands of Canadians are already using our mobile service. And we're growing incredibly fast as more and more people discover they no longer have to pay expensive mobile phone bills. You don't need to cancel your current mobile contract to try Fongo, just add the free app to your phone and start calling and messaging for free. You be the judge.

USE FONGO OUTSIDE OF CANADA

If you're travelling abroad, avoid expensive long-distance and data roaming charges by connecting to WiFi before using Fongo to call or message. Once you're connected to WiFi, call back to any of our Free Calling Cities, or call and message other Fongo users, for free. From anywhere in the world.

FONGO DATA USAGE

When you're connected on a call, Fongo uses 0.5MB of data per minute so a 500MB data plan = 1000 minutes of talk time. If you're calling on WiFi, you can pretty much talk forever. When you're not on a call, Fongo uses a minimal amount of data to listen for incoming calls.

IMPORTANT

• Supported devices: Fire OS or Supports Android (OS 2.2 and higher)
• To use Fongo you must be connected to a 3G, 4G or WiFi data connection and you must create a Fongo account. If your data signal strength is weak or your connection speed is slow, this app may not function properly.
• If you disable notifications, you will not receive incoming calls.
• Questions or need help configuring your device? Tap Support on the Account screen.
• Have an idea how to improve Fongo? Tap Feedback on the Account screen.
• Using Fongo as a default dialer may interfere with dialing 911 emergency services.
