A great free phone - I love my Whistle on Mac and iPod Touch. It does play a short commercial before placing an outgoing call but they are funny and over-the-top. When the Terminex ad was playing, I knew students who called just to play it for their friends. Network performance is definately a factor but my Whistle clarity is far better than my iPhone on speakerphone. A good addition to your communication toolkit and it works well with Google Voice. Especially good for kids with iPod Touches. They won't have connectivity in places without free WiFi but it does give them another communication channel after school.
Buyer Beware - For $9.99 you are supposed to receive unlimited text and US calling. I’ve paid in over $30 in the past two weeks and gotten nothing of the sort. Contacting support yields evasive answers to the simplest questions. This company, if it exists, has not posted to its Facebook or Twitter accounts since 2014. Red flags all over the place.
