Calls & Texts On WiFi With Three In Touch App @ Google Play Store

Found 1st Sep 2014
Call and text whenever you’re on Wi-Fi, even where there’s no signal.

Sometimes it’s difficult to get a good signal when you’re indoors. So we’ve created Three inTouch, the free app that lets you call and text whenever you’re on Wi-Fi, even if there’s no mobile signal. You can even use your Three number as normal, just download Three inTouch onto your Apple or Android smartphone and you’ll stay connected whenever you have Wi-Fi.

For those who are rooted. Try Rootcloak in Xposed. Works perfectly for me.

Sorry, title misleading.
You still have to pay for calls & texts.
Only the app itself is free.

The calls and texts are not free. They will still come out of your bundle.

"No extra charges. Calls and texts come from your monthly price plan or Pay As You Go credit."

Amended title now. Sorry. I misread it.

works so-so. people on the other end say I sound echoy and I find I have to keep reregistering the app every week. However, if you're in a poor signal area this app is good.

Can you use it abroad too, or only in the UK?

UK only. They're quite quick to point that out unfortunately

Funny thing is 3 are doing away with skype i suppose Three inTouch is just using the old formerly.
Still very good

Are Three still offering their Home Signal for problem areas, or does this app now replace that?

Can this be used on a rooted phone yet?

I'll have to test this when I'm at the in-laws at the end of this month. They live in Northern Ireland, and we get zero signal at their house. Be nice to be able to contact my family without relying on using their landline. The nearest transmitter for any network is around 3 miles away, so anything is a struggle.

it's not working

It replaces that....I was put on the Beta test as they stopped the Home Signal unit.

even where there’s no signal




That is full of balls. It never worked when i tried calling from london underground.

It really is a £$%^ app cos it always asks for registration every time i connect through a different wifi

I've tested the app in airplane mode (wifi only) on my iPhone with VPN with a Japanese Geographical IP and that seemed to work. (3 sim was in the iphone)

Picked up the iOS version.
Thanks for posting.

You have to have signal to activate it.
You can't be jailbroken or rooted.
From experience, the microphone doesn't work so the person you're 'speaking' to can't hear you. This may have been fixed or could be the 2 phones I've tried it on (iPhone 5 + Xperia Z1).

I'm sure it's good if it works - for me it doesn't, however.

Wish Vodafone had this!

Thanks for this.

Using tsProtector P from cydia on jail broken iphone 5 works with this to

You need good broadband for this to work, we have poor signal and super poor broadband so still no use oO

Vodafone have their compact Sure Signal plug-in unit. Very reliable in my experience and much better than the old Orange/EE "Home Boost" for which you need a UMA-enabled phone. If you negotiate hard enough, you can get it for free on contract, otherwise it's £100.

O2 have something similar called TuGo. Only issue I've seen with these app based solutions is that it's a separate app and not integrated into the phones standard dialer/messager. Certainly for TuGo you have to send txts through the app and make calls out through the app, though incoming does pickup with TuGo when there's no mobile signal. So unless you use the app to send the message rather than the standard messaging app, if the signal drops out it just does not go. You also end up with some messages showing up in the app and some in the standard messager. I guess InTouch is similar.

What sounds really good is the EE calls/txts over WiFi which they will supposedly launch in the autumn. The blurb I read say it all works seamlessly through the standard phones dialer and messaging app, transferring to WiFi when the mobile signal goes. It does say it needs a supported phone, but no details of what capability the phone actually needs. I remember some time back Orange had a similar feature, can't remember its name now, but that needed UTMS phone support IIRC. Sounded good but unless you had a supported Orange branded phone you could not use it.

Just about to ditch Orange/EE as poor signal at home, then again none of them are great where I live. Jump left out of the frying pan into the fire, jump right into the pan of boiling water, oh the joys of rural living ;-(

Does this work when using wi-fi abroad?
So we can remove roaming costs?

over a month old.

It's a fairly average app by Three. The voice quality is highly inferior (I have 152Mb broadband and wireless N and the quality is still not great). Useful for when I am in the pub with no signal but that is it really. Can only be used on a Three SIM as well.

The O2 app TuGo on the other hand is impressive and wipes the floor with this. I have this installed on my phone (which is now on Three) and receive all my calls to my O2 number with Crystal clear quality and texts etc are fast. One handset for both my Three and O2 numbers. Three really need to investigate the technology O2 are using.

wow
awesomeeeeeeeee

I'm over in Austria at the moment and it doesn't seem to work for me. Tried it on three different WiFi networks so far...

Perhaps your VPN isn't working properly?

Wait so you're basically getting dual-SIM functionality on a single-SIM phone? I must give that a go!

Thanks for sharing.

thanks it could come in handy when away and can get the WiFi.

Does anyone know if this app will work if you have another NW's sims in from which you could get a signal and use their data to use three's app.

Just tested this. I couldn't use it due to rooted phone, so I installed "Rootcloak" and it works fine.
I got home signal box but since moving house haven't transferred it over yet. Will be testing it more over the next week or so.
But looks good, better than not having any signal at all like i've been having.

I tried using rootcloak on this app a couple of months ago but it never worked. Might have to try it again.

So....what so great about this if you still have to pay for calls & texts?

Didn't work from Greece or Spain for me.

Nothing, three would rather develop apps like this invest in infrastructure.

What's the iPhone jailbroken equivalent of Rootcloak?
