    Horribly bothersome Started using this as the free service and it did well. Then I started paying for cellular service and it kept saying roaming when I try to make a call, knowing I have good Sprint coverage I canceled the pay service. Now it keeps harassing me to pay again. Seriously, every time I launch the app and then every thirty seconds I'm in the app--interrupting messages and being a pain in the ass. Full Review

    I DO NOT APPRECIATE MY REVIEW EDITED WITHOUT MY CONSENT!!For an Older version with less ads and now if you ain't paying for service your speeds are GARBAGE!!!..cumbersome.convoluted and glitchy used to be free now these sellouts have started to charge service SO "FREE" USER IS JACKED!! When the soul purpose of an application is to be free and the whole reason you are even in contention is that fact and you start to charge it defeats the purpose. you greedy little tiny tiny people are turning your backs on the users that made you rich. So sad A FREE SERVICE MADE YOU RICH AND NOW money rules you. Full Review
