Q:

What website can I use to text for free without a cellphone number?

A:

As of 2014, some apps and websites that let the user text for free without a phone number include Kik, Fring, Meebo and WhatsApp. GroupMe is another option that works exclusively for texting groups of people, while iMessage is an option for Apple device users.

Many more texting apps provide the user with a cell phone number free of charge, which is anonymous and not tied to their regular phone plan. These services include Google Voice, Textfree by Pinger, TextNow and textPlus. Most of these free apps are supported by ad revenue, but users can remove the ads by paying a yearly or one-time fee.
