Talk2: Get Your Philippines Number From Anywhere Review
Talk2 is an app which allows you to get a legit Philippines number so your friends and family can call you and send messages for local prices. You can download Talk2 for Android and iOS.
You can use the app offline and online. The offline option works with purchasing special in-app packages with which you can call and send messages to the Philippines. To use the app online for free you'll need to convince your loved ones to install the app and communicate through there.
Talk2 has a nice orangy main theme which is nice to look at. The fonts aren't original and don't add anything to the app-using experience. The main screen has three main tabs: your messages, calls history and your contacts, that's all you need really. When you swipe to the right you see your Philippines number and the main menu there where you can check your balance, purchase packages, or activate a gift voucher.
When you log in for the first time, it might take some time. You don't need to use your Facebook account to log in, but for some reason, it asks you to agree to some Facebook's policies when you put your number to get a verification message before using the app. After you've registered, you can immediately send your new Philippines phone number to your friends and family, and you can invite them to the app. If they're online, you can chat, send photos, voice messages, and other media one-to-one or to a group chat inside the app for free.
The thing is though it doesn't work properly. We've noticed while using it that the time in the package runs out faster than it's supposed to. The ads are annoying too but we understand that not everyone will buy packages, some people use it to chat only.
Cross-platform use 5/5
This Talk2 Review focuses on the Android version of the app. It surprisingly works better than on iOS because, we guess, most working abroad the Philippines can't afford Apple products because they have to feed their families at home. So the app's makers kept that in mind and created Talk2 more suitable for Android. But the app works for between both systems.
Talk2 works only if you buy social packages that will allow you to make calls and SMS from your new Philippines phone number. The prices are different for talk, text, and PLDT. They start from €3.39 and they last limited periods of time, and the minutes run out faster. You can receive texts or calls for free though, and the chats in the app are for free.
The Bottom Line
Maybe that's why you can't download Talk2 from official sources anymore because it became a total scam? With us, it worked 50/50, but there are some negative reviews where people say that they've wasted their money for nothing. So try to use it for free first and buy the cheapest package.
You may be lucky and this app will actually work for you and you'll connect with your loved ones in the Philippines.
