Crap app 1/5
1. Not that much more inexpensive than major cellular carriers.
2. Uses Sprint network which is smaller (10x less coverage than Verizon) than all other networks.
3. Prices for LTE start at $40.00/mo for a single device, ads alone to not be displayed an additional $9.99/mo.
4. If you log in with a VPN their service tells you you’ve violated their terms, they’re constantly tracking you.
5. If you send a group message to multiple people for the same stuff (like a party invite), they’ll flag you as spam and say you violated their terms.
6. Yeah their phone devices are cheaper, but none are name brand, all are cheap small basic touch screen nothing like an iPhone or current android on there. This is cell service for elderly/children, not serious middle aged adults.
This is no different than Google Hangouts; requires tracking, polices your usage, spies on you for location and activity, limits your usability and suspects every 3 texts alike is spam.
Would go with a different service if you need an extra line that bad, Verizon is far superior to this product, would gladly pay their monthly price than touch this junk.
TextNow isn’t sending any of my texts and its very annoying when you need to text something important to someone.
Very convenient to have!! I recommend 100%!

I have this app on my phone and no SIM card. It’s amazing.
This App Should Be Removed, App Almost Ruined My Relationship... 1/5
By Kadija C
I’m so very late on writing this review but I don’t recommend getting this app If your gonna mess or prank someone because I got this random text from this person that I didn’t know and had told me that she knows my boyfriend and say that he was cheating on me and have been dating him and even knew his nickname and that had me very concerned because only his “friends” or “best friends” know his nickname and had thought one of his friends were pranking him. I told my boyfriend and even showed him the messages and he was trying his best to find this person that was messaging me lies and when this person tried to show me “ evidence” of pictures of her and my boyfriend there was nothing there so this person had to lie. So on this day (2020) I still have the messages saved on my phone just in case something like this happened again and I had also changed my number, DO NOT GET THIS APP!
By NiNa Ro$$
Not able to get into my account I was changing number and has been locked out ever since it’s letting me choose area code option then it says something went wrong
With the new iOS 14 update ,it’s not allowing me to make or receive calls unless I’m connected to wifi.
App needs fixing 1/5
By Drizzy Sims
This app is failing all my calls
Just what I was Looking for💫 5/5
Great app guys😚
Not working with IOS 14 update 2/5
I have been using this app since March 2020 when I began working at home. After downloading the new IOS 14 update, it isn’t working with on my iPhone 11 Pro Max. In fact, I deleted it and tried to reinstall and can’t even download it. It says get but doesn’t even show in my cloud. I downloaded the app on to my old phone that doesn’t have the new IOS 14 software and it worked for me to make a call, but can’t answer calls. Texting worked but I need to be able to use this app on my actual phone, not an old device. I love this app and it has made it easier to work with my clients without giving them my actual cell phone number. Please fix this problem. Thanks!
Ads interrupt calls 1/5
Every time I try to place a call . The adds shut off the call or the call keeps hanging up in the middle of my call . Not cool
Calls over data don’t work anymore 2/5
By Boardwalk Mickey
For a few weeks now, calls over mobile data have stopped working. It seems that calls now only work over wifi. It didn’t use to be this way. That’s a major inconvenience.
Texting and calling 1/5
Can’t hear the people I’m texting and won’t send my messages
good but 1 problem 4/5
By true is my name ok
It’s amazing I use it to text my friends I use it to make my dms work But what I don’t like is that when u don’t text ppl u get kicked out and I’m annoyed by that bc if I get hacked I want to change the pass.
They deleted my phone number and I have stored data on that phone number and it went away and now I can get it back which is stupid. Why do you even delete phone numbers when they don’t use it it doesn’t make sense now I’m mad and I’m sending a bad review becuase I lost all my data, and I need it back :( 😡
Actual FREE texting app! NO Need to get credits or pay for service! 5/5
I live been using text now for a very long time. It is one of the only actual free calling apps out there. It doesn’t make you watch a bunch of stupid ads all the time or pay for the premium service just to make calls or send messages. If course, there are some ads on it but nothing that lasts for very long. Unlike some of the other calling apps I’ve tried which make you earn credits to make phone calls or send text messages. I always hated how I had to watch a 2 minute video or download some new game or app just to get enough credits to make a single call! TextNow is not like that. You choose your own phone number according to where you live and than voila!! You have a phone number that is good for as long as you continue to use TV rap I will mention that you have to use the app at least once a month or your number will get ready- assigned. That’s no big deal though. Just send a text or make at least one phone call a month and your god. I’ve had text now for a couple of years and it’s probably the only phone number I’ve had for a consistent amount of time. I would recommend TextNow to anyone. Even if you already have a phone number it’s nice to have a back up number that never changes. Also, you can log into text now from any phone as long as you can remember your email and password, if course. This is huge for me! I lose my phones/ and or break them a lot and so it’s awesome that no matter what phone I’m using I can just log in to my text now account and not skip a beat. I’ve also heard that TextNow offers free phone device if u have a sprint phone. Awesome right!
Best second number app 5/5
It’s a really great app
Unwanted Random texts 1/5
I’ve use this app before and it worked pretty well but this time I’ve only had it installed for possibly a week maybe a week and a half and I haven’t used it but today I did. All I did was send one text and now four times in a row I’ve received texts from random numbers texting me a telegraph app code. I keep blocking them and they keep coming so not sure what this is about- to the developers, it’s SHADY. I deleted it & im going to try Signal.
Can not hear when receiving calls 2/5
A couple of updates ago this app started failing. Now when someone calls you cannot hear what they are saying, and you have to call them back.
Text now 5/5
It’s very good and reliable
Don’t expect them to keep your phone number 1/5
Put up 1000 doorknocking hangers for a business. Didn’t have a customer call me the first month and lost my phone number through this stupid app. Now I still have 800 with the wrong phone number I can’t seem to get back thanks for nothing.

It’s ok!! 3/5
It messes up way to much. This could be my internet but still ugh 😑
So good 5/5
TextNow is awesome
By Tie Drave
So nice for me
I love it when I can text my friends and family but what I also love is that I don’t have to worry about not getting anymore “You can’t send this to this person” but now I can YYYAAAYYY!!!
Make an option to block calls 5/5
Ok so I’ve been using textnow for a lot of things like verifying my YouTube channel but I was doing a survey and it asked for my phone number so of course I used this app and then like a week later i started getting a bunch of spam calls
Doesn’t work anymore 2/5
By textnow user913
It’s not working. I miss calls and it won’t dial out
Best Texting App Ever! 5/5
If you don’t believe me try the app for yourself.
TextNow, what happened? 2/5
Have been using TN for a couple years and considered it a 4-5 star app that I truly loved... but that was until the last couple months.
According to what my iPhone says I do believe I have the newest version.. idk what the issue is. Several problems:
•Phone will ring, but instead of given the answer/reject options, my screen says I’m already In the call. And my phone is still ringing out loud but I can’t answer it.
Sometimes killing the app won’t make the ringing stop and I have to reset my phone.
•75% of the time I AM able to answer the call, it is dead silence on the other end and vice versa.
•Phone calls are just a wreck. Several textnow user friends of mine are having the same issues. Anything from basic glitching, lagging, can’t hear the other person well, etc.
WEIRDest thing is:
•My friend signed into their account one time for a few minutes. A long time ago. Since then, anytime she gets a call, that call also will ring my accounts, just whichever one I’m signed into at the time. This happens on any device I’m using. Her sign in was never saved or linked or anything it is SUPER weird. Sometimes it won’t actually ring but I will get the missed call notification. This also happens to some of my personal calls.
•Phone call lags. I’ll say something and the other person hears it a couple seconds late and vice versa(like when news reporters are talking to each other from different locations)
Wow, this app has literally descended from the gods. 5/5
By R Dane W
I love being able to call and text friends and relatives for free! The ads don’t even get annoying, in my opinion. Thank you, TextNow devs for creating this wonderful app!
Horrible App 1/5
I canceled the subscription from my Apple ID however I was still charged a fee and the option to cancel the subscription is not showing up on my end under the Apple ID. I had to reach out to Apple for a possible refund
The app is good but... 2/5
By tays tay
The app is good but if you don’t text for like a week it deletes your number which is not cool. I got my phone taken away and I came back and it said they reassigned my number. And now all of my contacts are probably texting someone else because they don’t know what my number is. This is not ok and I honestly really want my number back.
I can’t answer my calls 1/5
I can’t answer my calls
Love it! 5/5
I was using TextMe and it was horrible. I missed many calls and texts because it wouldn’t ring or notify me and the motivations were on and the ads were terrible. I see ads, but they’re small and at the bottom and don’t take up my whole screen. After switching to TextNow I haven’t missed one call or text and there’s no delay in the audio (which I had with the other guys) and now my husband wants to use it, too! Great job, guys! Keep it up! 👍🏻
Bug fixes 1/5
By bill 2957
So bad it’s under constant update, 8 different updates and fix it downloads in last 90 days.
It was a good app until it wouldn’t let me use it 3/5
By Anonymous 024
I was just texting my friends who I was only able to talk to via this app when all if a sudden I was logged out and told that my area was no longer supported by the app. So now I cannot talk to most of my friends and ads were all over the place, even in the text message areas themselves. It was a good app but now I see otherwise.
Took my money 1/5
When I got the 9.99 plan it said 30day return now all of a sudden I don’t get a refund I want my money back
Adds cut off phone calls 2/5
The adds cut me off in the middle of a call. Horrible design flaw or even worse if they intend this to happen.
Bugs problems 2/5
This app is very helpful it allows me to talk to people who don’t have the same phone has me. But it has some bugs one being the messages are slow to appear so it makes the conversation a little confusing sometimes. Another problem is the text double a lot where I’ll get the same text twice from a friend and they only sent it once or I’ll get it twice like 10 minutes apart and it confuses everything.
Great but could use a few fixes (it’s super Laggy) 3/5
It’s pretty laggy
Thanks bunches! 5/5
This app is awesome, my iPhone was tripping and this was my savior.
Not working 1/5
It worked well at first then it suddenly started playing a “call rejected” message when I tried to call someone. What is that about?
Always when I need in t
