Have you tried entering the phone number without any special characters?

Instead of entering the number like (XXX) XXX-XXXX, just enter ten digits with nothing else. I just got a generic TextFree number to test it and Telegram accepted it for me.

Well, I don't really know what IRCs are like since I've never been in one. Telegram is a little like Skype but also different. You don't do voice calls but you can leave voice messages. It's predominately text messages though. And you can change the background of the chat to suit yourself. You can also have custom stickers (kinda like emojis but you can use any picture) to express emotions. Below is a screengrab of it at full screen size with a Sasha sticker visible. I generally use it at a smaller size though which makes the side bar with the names less big.

As to how active the chat is, well you normally get a pawful of posts each day. It's not a constant barrage like Skype was but people generally talk if you poke them.

It's generally cleaner and more stable than Skype is, which is a big part of the appeal.

Uh, I think the link needs to be updated.

The link doesn't work, it prompts a "This chat doesn't exists".
Have you been looking at the thing above this? Dis is my old signature and is not relevant anymore.

I forgot about this thread... Well I don't know if it's appropriate to post it here or do so at all (especially considering it's been a while since I was banned from the group), but I wanted to apologize for the whole fursuit thing. I didn't mean to offend anyone, I'm sorry if I did.

Also why is it even though I'm no longer in the chat my phone still looks like this? ;-;

Infinite battery life does seem appealing, but I don't think there's an option to change font styling on there ;)

I got on a few times, but after losing the numbers i borrowed online and realizing the pain of sharing phone numbers with other people with your e-mail, i decided to retire on Telegram until i get a cellphone someday. :(

It was sweet while it lasted. Catch me on Skype and Discord!

Hey, I think you can get a cheap one, SMS are enough to activate a Telegram account, I think. I don't remember if Telegram required an active "main" phone.

I did an experiment with Telegram a few months back. Apparently if you get a Google Voice account, you can use that as a phone number to sign into Telegram.
