No calls 1/5

I can no longer accept incoming calls
App volume low 5/5
By Rakim Arnezz
Fixed the bugs, technical issues, and volume
Horrible never will use again 1/5
By destroyer 2244
The app freezes and crashes and the adds cover the screen they said they fixed it but they didn’t
Horrible and frustrating 1/5
It just keeps freezing and it makes my screen weird. It keeps popping up this ad and there is a lot more to way I hate this app too. Those were just some examples of why I hate this app and why it's so annoying. I don't recommend this app to anyone.
Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay freeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee texxxxxxxxxt meeeeeeeeeee sooooooooo happpppppppppppyyyyyyyyy
Is this app traceable my police or geek squad ? 2/5
In need to know the answers to these
It’s free and works reasonably well 2/5
I’ve been using Text Now for several years now and it’s served my needs well. However, after getting an iPhone 6 I’ve come across several issues. It’s VERY memory intensive, lags horribly after the app has been open for several minutes, and it causes my phone to get hot enough to bake a cake! When I had this app for Android it worked extremely well on all but the lowest end/oldest phones. I would like to see the app security that is offered on Android offered on the iPhone (you can password the app so no one can get into and see your messages).
Cant hear 1/5
When I call someone they can not hear me. I can hear them fine but they do not hear me at all. Whats going on? I mean i can talk fine with my regular service but when I use this app no one hears me????
Can’t create account 1/5
It asks me to check my network connection even though it works for everything else.
Destroys battery 1/5
On both my iPhone SE and 7 this app destroys battery life with background activity, in 10 hours it will do 70% with only 1-2 minutes on screen. Must force close after use to avoid issues. I think it's because of the connections to advertisements.
Never again 1/5
Stupid terms can’t use a VPN or they will ban your account
By Songwriting and the president
I got to make my own phone number and that’s great because all day I’ve been looking for an app that would give me a phone number so thank you sooo much
US Numbers only 1/5
Waste of my time downloading. Should've been more clear.
Phone number changed 1/5
This app forced me to change my number, despite my account being Premium. I am paying monthly and phone number should be locked.
Why did you changed my phone number???
Call service! 1/5
I’ve used this app off and on for a few years. Over those years I’ve seen the call service drop in quality. Calls don’t come through to my phone, they drop during calls, and the other person can’t hear me. In addition, to this at times I can’t make calls. The quality needs to be improved.
Won’t send me my texts. 1/5
Trying to get a verification code sent to me and it is withholding that text. Will defiantly not be using this app again. I know it is the app because I had to change my number to someone with an actual phone number and they got the verification text. This isn’t better than noting because it is nothing.
This app is amazing for me to troll my friends it is the best I really like this app this has to be one of the best apps I come across yet
It’s ok for texting but.... 2/5
It drops signal all the time and when I use it for calling, no one can hear me. It echoes pretty bad
This app stinks 1/5
By Landon Martin
This app is way too slow laggs and crashes way too much. I can be typing a sentence and it takes 15 minutes just to do it.
Why can’t send videos? 5/5
This app is really good! I have had this app for 3 years now. And a long time ago I was able to send videos but the new update it’s not allowing me too.
worst text app ever 1/5
dont dowoad it. doesnt work at all
This app is amazing, it shouldn't even be free! My parents won't let me have a number even know I have a phone. And this works on iPods and iPads which is really cool! The only downside is when you put in your area code sometimes it works but sometimes it doesn't but that's not really that bad it's great for prank calling too!
It’s a good app 5/5
But it has lame ring tones and needs to add iOS ringtones and notifications sounds and you can’t send videos but other than that it’s a really good app maybe you can inprove that in the future or next update plz and thank you 😊
Fix plz 1/5
This still freezes whenever I try and type after completing a sentence or two. Even with SwiftKey. And when I exit app and reopen to see if that works, it won’t let me switch away from the stock iOS keyboard. I’ll select the globe key and touch swiftkey but it’ll stay on the regular keyboard. Typing is horrible and I don’t get calls anymore. I get voicemail notifications the day after.
So this started to freeze when I would type and it took a few seconds for the letters to register on the screen. I was told to use a different keyboard like SwiftKey. Now when I type up to around half of a one page text message, using swiftkey or not, it will freeze for a lot longer. And if I use swiftkey it will always switch right back to the iOS keyboard mid-typing on its own.
still Bad 1/5
the bar where u type things in keeps glitching and going behind the add and it keeps glitching going further down until u cant use it and have to close the app and then open it back up for it to get fixed. i dont care much about it but it happens far to often so now i cant stand it
Surprised to see all of these bad reviews 5/5
I have used this app for a few years because I had an iPod and wasn’t able to text my mother who has an android. This app has always worked great for me, there isn’t even that many ads. I experience no lag or Glitching. 5 Stars.
Group Chats 2/5
TextNow’s inability to use group chats is frustrating to no end. It is incredibly annoying and has made me very close to deleting my account. There are many other applications that allow group chats that I’m currently looking into switching to.
Worked for 1 week 1/5
This app worked for exactly one week. Now I can’t send texts. I can only receive them. And there is no way to delete your account to start over.
This app is a waste.
Hate it 1/5
It won’t let me send any messages and it’s slow. I hate it.
By Bri Dillon
Noooo. My screen does go off while I’m on the phone I can see it in the corner of my eye. It still bursts out into speaker phone. In the middle of my conversation the phone would go silent for 10-15 seconds before the speaker comes on out of nowhere. If I pressed the speaker option it would turn blue but I look at the phone and it’s still black which indicates that I didn’t touch it. It came on on its own. It repeatedly does that the whole conversation. Sometimes I just let it stay on speaker and it turns back to normal on its own without me pressing anything. I would appreciate it if this got looked into because I’m honestly not pressing anything with my face. The speaker option is cutting on and off by itself
I love the app but one thing I’ve noticed that is really annoying is sometimes the text will disappear as you are writing and the send button is gone too. And it had stopped my conversations because I need to restart my phone and be tried this app on MANY different phones so I know it’s not just my phone. Other than that it’s a good app and is useful.
Most glitched app I’ve ever used 1/5
Texting is almost impossible. When you are typing a word it will freeze and take forever to finish typing. Sometimes you receive partial text or text that are out of order making conversations very confusing and sometimes when people send you a text you won’t receive it at all which has really screwed up things for me. I’m guessing all these problems are because of the massive amount of ads trying to load and refresh. I understand you guys gotta make money from the ads but I’d rather pay for a text app then have a free glitchy app!
Freezes and crashes 1/5
This app stays frozen and i can barely use it! The keyboard lags for minutes on one letter! This needs fixed!!!
Was a cool app about 2 years ago. Now it freezes. The app crashes. And when you type it takes forever for the letters to pop up. And the adds are just ridiculous now. Zero stars if I could.
It’s not free!!! 1/5
By SGT GoAhead
This is one of those auto charge apps
buena app pero a veces se friza mucho podrian arreglarlo?
Can’t change phone number 1/5
I was able to change the number I was calling from but now that app doesn’t give you that option
Great, except... 4/5
this app is great, and i use it everyday. one thing that would definitely make the app better is the ability to send and receive videos (and not as links!). it also runs kind of slow for me, though this may be because i have an iphone 5 🤷🏼♀️
A bit glitchy 3/5
I love this app but I've encountered a lot of problems with it. First of all, when people call me my phone doesn't ring, I just get a notification that I've missed a call. Second, the ads have a tendency to interrupt my calls. I understand that I can pay to remove the ads but from the reviews I've read this doesn't necessarily stop the problem? And lastly, it freezes up and/or force quits itself sometimes.
Other than that, this is a great app. I haven't found another that provides everything for free like this one does.
Deleted my number again 1/5
This app has deleted my number twice. I don't know what the problem is but I've used this app for years and now 2x in 2 weeks I lose everything when this happens. Very frustrating and disappointed.
By Cool Lori
This app would also be complete if we were able to send and receive videos. I use this app for school and i usually need to send videos for my interviews and I can’t ! It’s scary that I may miss out because of this . Please allow video access 😔.
By High Heights
I’ve only written three reviews in all my time using iPhone, 3GS. This exceptionally horrible app has brought me back to the review page. This app was better 1/2/3yrs ago. As tech advances you’d think the tech that uses the advanced tech would get better, not so with this app. It’s a shame, this used to be my go to app for texting. Try typing in this app and all you’ll get is a lesson is frustration. There is a delay with every single letter you type. The app freezes. The app freezes the phone. I actually had to shut my phone down because the app prevented me from doing anything at all. Couldn’t back out of the app. This has been going on for months, maybe longer. The developers apparently have zero interest in fixing this problem. Look elsewhere, this app is not for those who want a reasonably well executed texting app. Not anymore at least.
The developers respond with “thank you, we are working hard...” No. What they are working on are new platitudes to feed ppl so we think they’re “working hard.” They don’t care. These issues have been going on for months. I would be fired at my job by this point. This is inexcusable.
random numbers 1/5
I keep receiving 8 calls a day from random numbers and i never gave this number out. Im tired of receiving this crap. ive blocked at least 50 numbers that are only a number off from each other. I didnt know getting this app would be such a pain.
Best Texting App So Far! 4/5
I downloaded this app because I needed to be able to communicate. It works pretty well, for a free app. You can only text with Wi Fi, which is OK because most places have it now. And you can send and receive pictures, which is great. You can’t send or receive videos, though. That bummed me out. You just get this long link that leads to know where. Another problem is it’s really slow, which is very inconvenient when you need to tell someone something, fast. And if you try to send a text and the person you are trying to send the text to is sending you a text at the same time, it glitches. The app also crashes a lot. It works for what I need it for though. I recommend this app if you just need a free app to communicate, not necessarily to chat with your friends. And another thing that bothers me- you can’t do group chats. That is probably the most annoying thing about this app. If that could happen that would be great. And all this is why I give this app a 4- star rating. Thanks for reading my review! Hope it helped. 😁
Seriously?! What the heck happened to your service. Horrible. It’s absolutely horrible now. Cannot ever make or receive a call, so very delayed while texting, the ads are located in places that you are forced to touch bc it covers the send key. For real...get it fixed. Geez.
I can't make and receive calls 4/5
Ever since I downloaded this app, I haven't been able to receive and make calls. When someone try to call me I only get a notification of a missed call and a voicemail after. Every other thing is working perfectly, please I would really appreciate it if this problem is rectified immediately. Thank you!
Glitchy and Limited 2/5
By Lexi Biernesser
This app is great for devices that are unable to text/call non-apple products. However it has too many downfalls. The app itself is very glitchy and after using it, my whole device turns glitchy. I have to completely restart my device after using this app. It also is very limited, you have to wait for the app to completely open itself before you may start your calls/texts. I do not recommend this app.
It’s now working anymore... 1/5
At first it was one the best apps that exist but now idk wut happend but it’s not working anymore and it says there was a problem with ur account and... i can’t even log in...
This is ridiculous 1/5
By Big tiles
