  • Paid for subscription, never rings when people call.

    So the texting part works fine but anytime someone calls my burner, it never rings. Just says missed call from whoever. The weird thing is it worked fine for about a week. I never changed any settings and notifications are on. Not sure if it’s a software issue or what. Once this is fixed, I will gladly give it 5 stars .
  • It’s not helping, useless.

    When I download this app for Craigslist, so many calls coming from unclear numbers and try to do scam & fraud to my account. This app can’t even delete or filter the scammer number. I don’t like this, it’s useless.

    So I got the 3 number subscription. One number started getting calls immediately. One guy said is this the bank. Uhmm sure, give me you account number (kidding). I look up the number I got and it’s listed as an ”Personal Loan Scam” on Nomorobo (Whom they partner with). What give Burner? This is unacceptable. -update. I guess they cannot tell who had the number last. I just went in and burned the old number and requested another and seeing the choices, googled the one I was interested in, made sure it was clean, and created it. We’ll see how it works. However, how do you delete a background? You can select a background, but once created, how to remove it...?
  • Little Help via Email

    By PleaseRespondImAngry
    I downloaded this app because I wanted to reroute scam phone calls to this number, but then I saw that it costs $5.00 a month. I deleted the number and the app like it said to if I wanted to cancel, and I also sent an email to the listed email to cancel the account. I got an automated response and then an email saying that the account was no longer active. Still don’t know if I’m going to be charged or not. I’m irritated.
  • PLEASE fix your voicemail feature.

    By khehkymoliehky
    I absolutely love this app, I don’t know what I would do without it or how I would run my business. BUT. The Voicemail feature is absolutely atrocious. If I press play, then press the speaker button, it will play perfectly fine over my speaker. If while it’s playing I turn the speaker option off, click pause, then play again.. it will have an aneurism and start playing the voicemail over itself 2 or 3 times. I have tried everything to fix this so clearly it’s something on the developers end. Other than that it’s amazing!

    I’ve been very pleased with this app. It works as advertised. I regularly use it so I don’t have to give out my real number on sites like craigslist. The service isn’t free, but I would not expect it to be. I like how it gives me the option to get rid of a temp number right after use, or keep it for as long as I may choose to. I can also have multiple lines active at once. The only issue I have had has nothing to do with the developers. Some of the numbers it activates receive an excessive amount of spam callers. This is annoying at times but that is a risk you will always run into when getting a new phone number, as it has most likely been used by someone else before.

    After having installed app, started getting tinder spam texts. Deleted app!
  • Burner is NOT FREE

    By quiltinglucy
    I like your app idea. However, I HATE when you and others say product is Free. It is NOT FREE! Only the download is Free. Then after 7 days, you have to decide which plan you want to subscribe to, or delete app. Many seniors, such as I am, are on fixed income. Our group is bombarded with this and that, all costing money. Or bombarded by scammers. We are constantly asked to subscribe to one thing or another. If I added what I have to pay in subscriptions, it ends up being more than my monthly expenses for medical and RX. Please erase the free app part. Unless, a new category is made stating: free app with download, BUT after trial period, must subscribe with a fee. Otherwise say free download of app. Fees for subscribing.
  • Horrible app

    I've tried using the support via the app and you can't send the email. I then used copy and paste of the email address and it was stated that a reply would come in 24 he? Well TWO WEEKS LATER no reply ? I'm being changed DOUBLE for one line which I paid for the year? Why is this???

    I’ve been trying for months to cancel my subscription and they continue to charge me!! If you are looking to ever cancel this app, just know it may be a STRUGGLE to get them to stop charging you!
  • App has problems

    Messages don't load.. Cannot receive videos.. This is 2018 and this app won't show me videos that were sent to me. Next sometimes send just fails.. Message notification doesn't happen on time when i get the message.. App is poor with data management.. Cannot receive LTE data sometimes even when full signal and other apps loading fine
  • Canceling is ridiculous

    Cancelation process is unreal, 6 different emails, and they give the wrong info to cancel. Good lord. And stop with all the follow up emails I already explained I want to cancel, how hard is it?

    this app tried to make it very difficult for you to cancel. I did not let you cancel it
  • Not consistent

    By Familygirl1976
    I have a consistent problem with my calls not going through. The number will ring and ring but then not connect to the other persons voicemail. I usually just have to try again later. I have the monthly fee plan and once a month I end up switching to a new number to get things working again. Not all my pictures go through and I’m often left thinking wondering if my messages went through or not. When the app is working it’s nice but the unknowns are difficult to deal with.
  • NO SUPPORT FOR THIS APP!

    App worked great until I changed phone numbers... support wouldn’t help me change the number my account was linked to. Very dissatisfied!
  • No forwarding to VOIP numbers

    By _Milo777_
    Was almost perfect, but not allowing forwarding to VOIP #s is deal breaker. Need to forward to google voice. Change this dumb rule and I’ll be back.

  • Frustrating

    1
    By WUDJASAY?
    I’ve had a hit and miss experience being able to answer calls. Most of the time I answer, and it immediately goes to voicemail while telling me I’ve missed the call. Even more frustrating, Burner’s own words say, “All subscriptions include unlimited calls, texts and pictures.”, yet I had a paid subscription for only one day before it blocks my ability to send any texts, telling me “this line is out of texts”. 👎

  • Numbers can’t be used for account verifications

    By fookinbased
    The app works as advertised. However, the numbers created by the app cannot be used for the verification text message required by many popular social media sites and email providers. Personally, just don’t want to give these companies my real phone number.

    I just subscribed and I thought I’d keep the first number that I started using, instead you’re making me create a new number. I want money back

    LOVE this app. Would be 5 stars if you could send and receive video messages though.
  • Exposes your private number

    1
    By Exprtgmr
    At first, when a burner contact got my real phone number, I was very concerned and disappointed but I held my tongue not being sure exactly how they got it through the burner service. Then I gave out my burner number to new contacts and made sure I never gave them my private number as an “experimental control group” and, low and behold, two of them started calling my real number. Now, I have to have my private phone number changed because of this app. Is this happening to any other customers.?
  • Charged me and burned my number

    By Rochelle978
    Horrible app. Told me it was the last day to extend my free trial, so I paid to extend, then several hours later I got notifications that said I had 2 hours, then one hour, then 15 minutes to extend or my number would be burned. I tried to contact them but it said I didn’t have an email account or something. Also, I received a voicemail before the number was erased and at least the first half of it was missing. Really annoying.
  • Nice app nonexistent support. You better with GVoice

    By Da408
    The app is good until it works. At some point my number stopped receiving/sending text. I filed a support ticked with dev team. They done absolutely nothing for 3 weeks, just ignoring my emails. Stay away from this app and get a G Voice number instead (for free!!!)

  • I’d love to give this a 5* but there are some issues

    2
    By Cbconcepts.co.nr
    First off, this works pretty good 75% of the time. However there are some bugs that really need to be fixed. First off, sending images works only half of the time. I learned a way around it by “taking a photo” then erasing it I can somehow upload a preexisting photo. That trick works only some of the time. Second. Missing texts. I have several ongoing communications with clients and will periodically miss important texts from them. This seems to be totally random but I’ve missed at least 5-10 (they would later send proof that the text was actually sent) Third. Text bar freezing. Force resetting the app also doesn’t fix this. I will have to reboot the phone in order to fix. Again, the app is good and I’d be willing to change my review to 5 when these things get fixed, especially for us that paid for the premium membership.
  • Works ok but can’t cancel subscription

    By justcancelmysubscriotion
    The app works ok but when it comes time to cancel my subscription for auto renewal there is no way. I click cancel and it tells me to go to my iTunes settings to cancel but there’s no way through their either. Will have to find a way to call to have it done which is a hassle

    This app was once an absolute lifesaver, & now it’s completely unusable. I’m subscribed for a single line, but I can’t use it till next month? My iTunes payment is updated & working yet I can’t create a line. Please fix this app so I can love it again.

    This is very bad service and product. You have to pushed 1 for it to accept caller. It actually used and rang on your private number. I expect to have a separate phone line.
  • Screwed

    By TNNashvilleUser
    Paid $99 for one year service and was using it with no problem. The day after changing my AT&T cell number Burner wanted to send a code to verify my service for logging in. Their message said that they occasionally do this. I put in my new cell number and received their text with the code. After entering their code I was sent to a new sign up page for their service. It’s impossible to log into my account because evidently they have stored my old cell number for authentication purposes.

    Works great except that I get calls from random people on a daily basis saying that they got a call from my burner number and they are returning the call. I have never used the app to make a phone call, only to text. Very annoying. I will have to find an alternative.
