The world of telecommunication and international messaging is very complex. Texter is making this world simpler by providing users with easy access to international phone numbers and inexpensive international messaging.


What is needed to send a message

To send messages using Texter you need:

  1. Number (subscription)
    • weekly, monthly or yearly automatically renewable subscription to keep your number active
  2. Credits (consumable)
    • one-time purchases of texting credits
    • credits do not expire
    • need to be purchased manually when spent
  3. Internet connectivity
    • Wi-Fi or Mobile data are needed to send or receive messages


How to set up your 2nd phone number

How to purchase credits

Every new user is given 20 free messaging credits that can be used to send or receive messages on a purchased number. In order to be able to send and receive messages after spending free trial credits, you need to purchase one of the credit packages via your Apple ID.  Credit packages are one-time purchases and they do not expire and do not automatically renew.

  1. Go to Contacts or Profile section in the app.
  2. Tap on the "BUY CREDITS" button.
  3. Choose your preferred package of credits.
  4. Make a purchase using your Apple ID.

How to send a message

  1. Purchase your number as described above.
  2. Make sure you have enough messaging credits. You can check your remaining credits in the profile or contacts section of the app.
  3. Tap the button in the center of the bottom tab bar.
  4. Either choose the contact or dial in the number you want to send the message to.
  5. Write a message and send it.

How much does a message cost

Each country has a specific price for sending and receiving messages. Some of them even have specific prices for certain regions, cities or mobile operators. To save you from scrolling through thousands of price lists, the app offers a simple Tariff calculator.

  1. Go to the settings section of the app.
  2. Tap on Tariffs.
  3. The "FROM" field is pre-set based on what phone number you purchased. You can change it manually by tapping the field.
  4. Tap on the "TO" field and choose which country you would like to send a message to.
  5. The calculator displays how many messaging credits it takes to
    a) to send a message from your number to a country you chose (Outgoing)
    b) to receive a message to your number from a country you chose (Incoming)


How to cancel

Since all purchases are made via Apple, you will need to access your subscriptions under your Apple ID and deactivate it. Once your subscription is deactivated, your phone number is returned to the pool of numbers and can be purchased by other users. Credits that you purchased do not expire. If you decide to purchase a different number, the credits will be transferred. However, you need to purchase the number with the same Apple ID that you used to purchase credits.
