So, I was helping a friend out with getting a free phone service + texts. I came across TextNow.com. This free service is cloud based, gives you a phone # and you can make calls & send texts from a mobile phone or computer. The service works pretty good the call were clear as my friend lives in a small town.
There are ads on the splash page TextNow and I believe they scan the text messages like google does/did for advertising purposes.
Now I have a phone # for when I don't want to give out my biz phone#

I had that system for few months last year. It was working fine in areas with great internet but when i was driving outside big cities, i was losing tens of call. Maybe in your area works better, but in Dublin the internet is very poor quality
