Pfingo gives all new users $0.20 worth of credit, which gives you around 15 minutes of talk time to countries like India, Australia, Taiwan and China!

No. Our new app is currently not connected to our older services. As such, you would need to contact them via their phone number. Your contacts do not need to download the Pfingo app to receive your call.

When you place a call using Pfingo Callback, we send a callback request to our servers via your phone’s Internet connection. Our servers then receive this request and call you back immediately using a regular phone network. As soon as you answer our incoming call, we’ll connect you to the number you wanted to call.

You can (1) make call using the Call Through function or (2) try using the Callback function again. If the problem still persists, do drop us an email at pfingo.support@globalroam.com on the matter.

Pfingo calls are cheaper with better voice quality for international calls.

For Pfingo Call, you will be charged if the receiver picks up the phone call. For Pfingo Callback, you won’t be charged for a Pfingo call if you cancel the Pfingo Callback. You’ll only be charged for the call once you accept the Callback from our servers.

Just like a regular phone call, your calls with Pfingo may fail due to many reasons. In such cases, please ensure that:

1. You’re calling from the same number you registered with Pfingo.

2. The receiver’s number is operational.

3. The receiver’s phone is not switched off, out of order or outside the area of coverage .

If you are still unable to connect, please contact us at pfingo.support@globalroam.com

To make a Pfingo call:

1. Simply open the app and tap on the contact name you wish to call from the contacts screen.

2. Choose between the Call Thru, Call Back or Call Out functions. You will be instantly connected to your contact, just like a regular call

To call contacts that are not saved in your phonebook, use the dialpad in the app to manually dial the number you wish to call.

Pfingo has three call functions – Call Thru, Call Back and Call Out.

Call Thru:

Pfingo converts an international call into a local cellular voice call. This means that the receiver will still receive the call as a normal voice call and both parties will be able to communicate without an active internet connection.

Do note that this function will require usage of your outgoing local minutes.

Call Back:

When you choose the Callback function, our servers will give you a call and connect you with the number you have dialed once you pick up. As this will be an incoming call for both you and the receiver, neither party will have to spend any local outgoing minutes!

After the call has been linked up, neither you nor the person you are calling requires an internet connection.

Call Out:

A call is made through the app over WiFi/3G/4G connection to any number worldwide (landline or mobile). The person you are calling receives it as a normal voice call and is not required to have Internet connection or the Pfingo app.

Do note that this function will require data usage and your mobile carrier’s data charges will apply.

Pfingo is supported on on Android and iOS phones

The Call Out function can be made worldwide as long as you have a stable Internet connection!

The Call Thru and Call Back functions are made using a Singapore Pfingo number and calls should only be made originating from Singapore using a local Singapore number.

Pfingo displays all your international contacts from your default phonebook in the app. To add a contact to Pfingo, simply save the contact in your phonebook and open your Pfingo app. Your contact will automatically be synced. You can also use the dialpad to contact numbers that may not be present within Pfingo
