Reviews From google play store

This app was great when I downloaded it a year ago. I recommended it to all my friends! But lately it's not receiving calls or even dialing calls.. just texting. I see many other people are having this same issue. I have the app updated and made sure all the permissions are on. So I don't know what the problem is. Tried calls on three different devices. Dials in silence. Does not even ring when I call from another phone number. Please look into these complaints textnow. The app used to be great!

its a pretty good app to send text messages. making phone calls is sketchy. have to have full wifi,, and even with that, calls are not good. I have to check my phone to see if anyone has called or left messages,, Phone will not ring 90 percent of the time,, and will not notify me I have a text??? Very much a pain. It is free,that is about the only good thing about this app.

I live in a dead spot for cell service. This app allows me to make phone calls and texts over Wi-Fi with a separate, dedicated phone number. I love that it doesn't require anything special on the other side. People can call or text me as long as I am connected to Wi-Fi. When I'm back in areas with regular cell service, the Wi-Fi from my regular carrier (cricket) allows me to use the service as well. i.e. I can make/receive calls and texts. The quality is great!

I like this App a lot. I've used it in Vegas and Bowling Green, KY. I like having a local number to do business in a specific area code. You look local even if you're not but I am. It gives you a higher percentage of ppl answering your call. I never have any problems w it and I like that it has a different ring tone than my phone. I'm a Real Estate Investor and when I hear that ring I know it could potentially be a BIG FAT CHECK.

I just love, love this App. It comes in handy, it's an extra number to have, I don't like giving my regular Cell or Home number out, that's when I use TextNow. Actually I have a phone I also use for everything, I use it the same as my Regular Cell, pay Bill's, play games take photos etc. Just transferred my personal info to my new cell. The number rings on both phones. I dont miss a call. So yes, I JUST LOVE TEXTNOW. Seems like TextNow won't let me go. The post button won't light us. Get it.

I've been using since about 2014, decided to add a comment to my review. Works like a charm. You have to be on a public WiFi that accepts the certain protocol enabled for voice however. For instance, I cannot call from the Library, McDonald's, and other Wi-Fi's, but others will, such as the Sam's Club by me and others allow it. Home WiFi always works. Texting works anywhere. Absolutely any public WiFi I have used over these years has worked. Plus, number is permanent if you use it once a month.

Sometimes at a public Wifi I can't make a call to anyone. And I'm not getting any calls either. I used to rave about it telling my friends to get it. Now I won't. Something has changed to reduce quality. Nov 18, updated app. App is next to useless. Only good for texting. No calls are going through. I've updated and no f-ing good. Im not getting calls or able to make calls. The text works and thats the only thing that does. Other apps cant call either. I'm removing a star.

Not sure where to get assistance; this might be the wrong forum. Been using TextNow for more than a year. Last week got error mesg "app not installed" and unable to access. Went to google playstore today and discovered app was updated on November 19. When I try to install it, tho, only choice is "open." So.. it's installed but not recognized? Don't know what to do. Help? (You have my info if there's a preferred method of communication. 🙂) Must choose star to proceed -3 is in middle.

LOVE the app, been using for awhile now and had no problems. Within the last week I've had to go into Google apps to open it. From my home screen when I go to open it, it tells me (This App is not installed). But when I open it in the app store it gives me 2 options, uninstall or open. So I know it's installed so why can't I open it from home screen???

This is an update: The app works well for texting, and is easy to use. But the subscription service is a bit flaky. I used the free version and didnt have any problems. I personally do not like ads, and I dont mind paying yo have them removed from apps. When I paid for the subscription, the app did not remove the ads, and there were two charges made to my bank. It wasnt until I canceled my subscription that suddenly the problems resolved themselves. I have no ads now, but nervous about subscript

You can only talk to the person for a few minutes then calls drop. Voicemail automatically tells the caller that they are leaving a message on a text service which it's kinda weird because you want to hide that your using a text app to call and message someone. I had also purchased the premium, no difference there.

Works great about 60-70% of the time, locks you out otherwise with no explanation and zero help from the app's authors. Also, authors constantly spam me with ads for their service, but won't offer service in my area (which presumably would stop the ads) and won't stop spamming me. It's like getting a giant middle finger right in the face. Finally, poor tech support and over-reliance on junk "helpbots" that are no help at all. To the authors: Don't count on ever getting five stars from me.

It's alright for when you don't have a phone capable of making data calls and have to use Wi-Fi. It does not connect with most calls though, and forces you to text. And with the calls that do get through, they end up choppy and muffled, even with full Wi-Fi bars. But it definitely works in a pinch.

It's a great app and I love that they have started making their own cell phone plans that you can purchase for cheaper than most of the companies around, they also give you an option to use the phone you currently own as the phone for the plan. Sometimes your phone may not be compatible with their service. The only downfall to this app in particular is sometimes when we go to call a phone number, text now cancels my call completely time and time again with the same phone number you're calling.

The service was good when I first downloaded the app, which was a year ago. Since then I have been having so much trouble. When I'm on a call then I get a call the phone restarts itself while I'm in the middle of a call. Some of my calls come through some don't and sometimesi get messages sometimes I don't. Now for the most recent problem I can't open the app at all to check my voicemail or text messages. I pay for the data and I have no problem with that at all. I've sent messages no reply yet.

I absolutely love this APP! It really comes in handy having a second phone number. I mainly use it for business purposes and use my regular phone number as my personal line, and separate them with different ring tones. Or if you like doing surveys online I recommend getting a second number and give that to any websites asking for a number! This way if they get to be to much you can simply shut it down, then you don't have your phone ringing off the hook all day!

Useless. Never fails to load ads. Never fails to let spammers call you. Always fails to dial out. Says "dialing" in silence until you give up. I don't think it's even trying. Basically an adspam delivery app. EDIT : Like everyone else who makes this complaint and gets the cookie-cutter response, the app is up to date. I also think that viewing the ads and enduring the robocalls is upholding my end of the bargain. You make the money off of me, you fix the app without me.

I think this app is alright it freezes slot so that makes me 😡 and when the phone goes off when you are on a call and the phone turns back on it does not let you hang up in the call and it takes a long time to come on so I suggest you do not get this free text and calling app and when you text it doesn't even type the words you want it to. AND IT DOES NOT HAVE EMOJIS OR FREE WIFI. BY THE WAY MY BIRTHDAY IS NEXT WEEKEND IM RURNING ELEVEN AND I LIKE UNICORNS. WELL YOU HAVE MY FEEDBACK DONTGETIT

Kinda pissed off. Been using this app for a month or so. Use the call and text quite frequently then all of a sudden I find out my I no longer have a number. Also, when I go to create another one my area code is not available. Even when I use my location. I want the same one because that's the number everyone I have has been calling me at

I love this app. This is probably one of the best free texting and calling apps that I have ever downloaded and used i never have any issues with it. One of the features I like the most are the unlimited free calls. Most other apps you have to earn or buy the minutes so they arent technically free but you dont have to worry about that with this app.

I love this app because it actually as a secondary phone number. Like a backup. However, there are bugs sometimes with calls even when you're connected to strong internet. Sometimes the calls will just not alert your phone. Or the call will come through but nothing shows on your screen. But it's only occasional and won't happen often.

Text now is one of the only off brand messengers. That I will use. It seems when I use any of the others. Which will remain nameless. Lol. it just seems that my phone then doesn't know how to receive the message. I'm sure it's my lack of understanding. That's okay though. I like TextNow and when you like something you stick with it. So it's definitely stuck with me or on me. JK TextNow TextmeNow

My experience has been very good. I use the app plus a phone plan & eventually purchased a phone through them. The wifi calling & texting work well, coverage is on the Sprint network, so if that's good in your area, it should work well. Haven't had any luck outside the Sprint coverage area, not sure if roaming works. Great 1st smartphone for kids, talk & text is $10.00/mo. (Nov 2019)

I cannot understand why when connected directly to wifi in home this text Now app says i am sending mess. And making calls however, the recipients at times deny any receiving. When this doesnt happen it works well. Also when i go to purchase the payment method of MasterCard NetsPend is not accepted. I highly recommend this communication app to others when reg service is too expensive for budgets, not available, or a person who rarely uses this form of communications.

Nice app,calls have never dropped on me . The only thing that I have been irritated with is when opening it up and trying to open a msg I'll press the newest msg on the top of the list and a lot of the time the ass haven't loaded to that spot yet so I click there only to have the ad nudge my msg down one and me click the stupid ad (whatever it may be at that moment) which transports me to their webpage which I have to close and I have to close the excess open apps that that just take up ram,ec

After months of usage and tons of troubleshooting I have come to the conclusion that the app is not working properly. It will not send and receive calls at a reliable level. It will not send and receive call 85%of the time. Multiple devices including tablets and cell phones in multiple service providers and wifi connections. The device will show the call but the app will not show or let you answer it. Calling out will not work but at any time the advertisement will be there and load no prob.

I'm giving it at 3 because I just installed it after reading through multiple reviews. To all the people out there who complain ... come on now folks it's free, it works, and if you're broke its more than you had before you downloaded it! I have had no problem calling and or texting. I've had high-end cell companies with just as many problems as some of you are complaining about. After I have it for a while I will reevaluate but for now it's all good! Thank You! CK

It's by far a great app, but the calling system is a bit..Low quality. Me and my cousin would play all day, everyday and call each other with this app, but we find it hard to hear each other which is a bit disappointing .. Every time me and my cousin are on call, it glitches. And also, if we do glitch out, we call each other again but it still says we're in a call. It's very frustrating..

Awesome! Works great for somone who doesn't wanna pay for a phone plan and stuff. Also, for those who want it to work off WiFi, they have a cheap plan for that too or you can get there phone that's only like 30 dollars to use it with. It's an overall great texting and calling app, you can use the phone number just like a real one. Thanks so much, it's perfect for me!

Awesome app. You can call, text, send and receive pics, voicenotes, leave and receive voicemails. Just need WiFi or data and you're good. Perfect back up number to have if your phone is off or if you just don't want to give out your personal number. Good to go!

I have used TextNow for several years. But this week while in Puerto Rico my cell phone service (Verizon) has no service on this island. Well TextNow to the rescue. The hotel had wifi service and with TextNow I was able to call, text, exchange information and most of all give me peace of mind. As long as I had wifi access TextNow saved me. I'm actually rating this app from my hotel in Puerto Rico. 5 stars to TextNow.

Best wifi calling and texting app I've used. I only have one issue with the app which is dialing a number and hanging up on calls. Dialing Numbers take a pounding to dial and also with ending a call I have to constantly tap the buttons. And I'm certain it's not my phone because I've delt with the issues on three different phones. So please do fix it. Other than that I rate this app with 5*s😉 thanks

It WAS a GREAT app at first! Now it has been utterly abysmal! It doesn't always ring when calling someone!! It sometimes cuts out despite having great signal strength! Often has to push end button LITERALLY 25+ times for it to hang up if it even does that! And THE WORST OF ALL....... IT DOESN'T HANG UP AT ALL AND I HAVE TO GO IN MY SETTINGS, PULL UP THE APP, AND FORCE STOP FOR IT TO HANG UP!!

It's a good app for a second number, if you don't want someone to have your real phone number, the only problem I have with it is, sometimes the app won't alert when someone is calling me or sends a text message, I'll only find out that I have texts or a missed call when I open the app, otherwise it's a great app, and it's free to use.

Frozen 100% of the time. Advertisements bring the app to a complete standstill. Keyboard responds to less than half of my presses. Calls and texts fail to send constanty having perfect bandwidth. Takes over 10 minutes to attempt to call ONE person. This has been the same story for a number of years across a number of tablets I've used with tgis application. Please don't rely on an app like this to make calls of texts for you. Your contacts will never hear from you again.

It's a free phone. Small ads that don't interfere much at all, or pay less than 5 bucks to remove them. Quality is great, with the only occasional bit of lag, but superior to skype and the like. I've been using this for about 6ish years now and haven't looked back.

I'm actually impressed with this one , even if my Wi-Fi is weak I am able to text or call . Although weak Wi-Fi causes a delay when talking. But it hasn't left me stranded or does it drop in the middle of a conversation. Keep up the good work and I shall continue using this free calling app. HEY U YEA YO I AM AN ACTUAL PERSON WHOM USES THE FREE CALL APPS AND THIS IS TRULY 💯% ONE OF THE BEST I HAVE RAN ACCROS. TRY IT OUT AN SEE FOR YA SELVES . -WILD-MAN-

I've used this app for a long time. I really do like it, the only thing I've had a problem with is receiving phone calls. The calls go through great most of the time, it's just when someone is calling me it only rings once so I don't have a chance to answer it. And there was this one random time recently, when I made a call it only ringed once then hung up. It did that like 8 times in a row then the last time I tried the call went through.

I only used this service for a day while having issues with my regular contract service. After a month or so of non use I received a few messages that the number would be reassigned. All good, I thought. BUT (!!!!!)... apparently the number can still somehow access my information??? My family and friends get strange calls and texts that look like they are from me at 3 and 4 am?? Calls sound like foreigners, and texts sound like random snippets of American text conversations.

I pay for a subscription and quality is low.. There are so many missed messages.. I have had friends mad at me thinking I'm ignoring them because they aren't receiving my messages and/or I'm not receiving theirs. We will send eachother screenshots to show that no messages have come through. Phone calls are a joke. Constantly dropping calls. Don't even try driving while on a call, its the worst. Your call will drop no matter what, even if you stay in a wi-fi zone and dont move, call drops.

Based on my experience... Not the greatest. Calls do indeed drop a lot, call quality is nowhere near as good as Skype. I literally am paying for a Skype number as well as a subscription because I'm unable to use Textnow. That money being spent on Skype can be spent here instead... But not until the call drops are fixed. I'll gladly pay for adless experience and also, for other benefits, which will be cheaper than my current Skype payments. So please fix the issues so I can come back to Textnow!

This app WAS better than any other app I have had, I gladly paid subscription to this app and recently every call I get I am not able to answer it. They are VERY important calls. I hate to say anything bad about this app because it was VERY good for the most part until recently. I've updated it, tried making new accounts and new subscriptions nothing is helping. I have recommended this app to others in the past, but I don't know if I would anymore.

Perfect app when you live a polyamorous lifestyle and don't want to give out your dedicated phone number. It's perfect for texting, and with a solid connection, great for phone calls. But above all when you're living in the Florida Keys and are way too lazy to pay for service, and the entire island is a wifi Hotspot, it's perfect! I absolutely recommend this app to my friends. (and I have several times)

Not a great app BUT it is show minor improovement. Its taken months to get where there is a notification or sound that there is an incoming call. Took 4.5 months. That being said the support teap is polite and seems to be trying to help. Messages send very slow compared to all other apps. it takes people up to 20 min to get a message sent from the app.

Been with your service for several years and over that time I have experienced a drastic amount of change. I don't want to express your unexplored customer base but it alone is why I have stayed with your service for so long and with so many phones. I would like to see my app be able to check for updates and install it on next opening. I don't and won't set my phone to auto update!

ugh it just keeps cycling me through signing in over and over! I can't even get in and get a number! Edit: nope, I'm in the USA. But nice try with that slack jawed response. It finally worked after you updated. So it was on your end despite your blame shifting. Also, I keep getting ringing with no call alerts. Not voicemails. Just phantom ringing.

I want to use another texting app. When an add pops up, it'll load after I've already tapped there to start texting, therefore, causing me to go to the add. The app is extremely slow already, but that makes it even slower. Today, someone texted me at 2:01, and after the app loading and me having to restart it, and after the letters loaded, I sent the text at 2:07.. no joke. It would be pretty hard to switch texting apps, so I am extremely disappointed and mad.

I DON'T UNDERSTAND how y'all reply back to people & make excuses but DON'T attempt to fix app!!!IT'S RIDICULOUS how many issues there is with this app!!It's controlling my phone causing it to freeze up & be slow!!Won't ring when someone calls or if it does I can't answer it!!Steady cutting me off the call!!Texting is freezing up & slow as hell!!

I am extremely thankful that this app is free to use because I currently have a cellular service plan that I pay for monthly. I downloaded TextNow from the Google Play Store on a borrowed android phone to use after my iPhone was broken and sent off for repairs. I never had any kind of trouble using the app. The texting and the calling feature worked just as expected. I would highly recommend this app for anyone in need of a free calling and texting app.

Literally THE BEST! It's actually better than most major cellular networks. TextNow is on a level of it's own. All you need is WiFi, which is everywhere now days. It's well worth it, and I recommend it to everyone, who is in need of a new number or such, and don't want to have to change everything. 💯💯💪🏾 AWESOME 💪🏾💯💯 oh and to the developers thank you for all your hard work with maintaining and putting out this app. 🎅🏼

This service has made a huge difference in my life. I live in a rural area where you have to drive 5 miles to get cell phone service. I finally got internet out here last year and found TextNow. I haven't had any issues and I get all my calls at my house, which saves me from having to drive every four hours to check my phone. Thank you TextNow you rock.

My review of this is app is long overdue. I love text now I've only used thier free wi-fi calling services but I've had my account for years. Since 2015 and I've had reliable messaging service and crystal clear calling access to call land lines cell lines businesses And reliable voice mail access through my existing voicemail box in te last year or 2. At least that's when I noticed it. Multiple numbers and devices. I'm Jim Clayton and I'm a Google beta tester.

This is a great app. I use it mostly when im inbetween phone cards. I can make business calls, send photos and text as long as i have internet. TextNow had been a lifesaver for me. I think everyone should download it. At least for a backup number.

For the most part it's great! It runs smoothly and I haven't run into too many issues. Although, and this might just be a me problem, sometimes other people's texts will appear out of order from when then they originally sent it. So sometimes it hard to tell what their saying and when. Hopefully this can be fixed.

Can't use the app at all anymore without granting it permission to all your data. It won't even start. So instead of having to deny permission each time it runs, it is just unuseable. Wasn't good enough to just flood you with ads. Your data is the product. Please read the permissions section before using, folks.

I ordered and paid for a plan of unlimited talk and text with out Wi-Fi for $30.00 for a year. NO where did it say they don't give or sell a sim card for there year plan. Then they said that the plan I got needs to have Wi-Fi. I did this in July and they barely text me, saying they can't give me a refund, I have to get ahold of Google play or Google pay. I'm having trouble doing that! you can only use this app if you have Wi-Fi and they renewed me for another year with out permission

I think that this app is extremely helpful for the thousands of people out there that can't really afford a monthly cell phone bill...But desperately need to stay connected which helps while looking for employment and many other things... And the fact that the service is FREE providing you have or can find WiFi which fortunately is more and more accessible now a days. TextNow is very east to use and never gives me any problems... DEFINITELY NEED TO TRY IT OUT!!!!

This app truly does all it proposes; it had more than exceeded my expectations. I was drawn to the free part and stayed for the other parts. I'm loving TextNow for not making me sing for my supper by watching endless 30-60 second ads, making purchases for both unneeded & wanted items, buying 30 day trial subscriptions that bill continually even after cancellation and rarely refund. So I'm just gon say to me TextNow is A-Okay!

Ive had TextNow for probably close to two yrs.and besides not having to pay a dime for phone service,T N was absolutly the best since cell phones were created..But there always are the pros and cons. My issue was ,not getting calls unless I was within 45 to 50 feet of a wifi signal and some messages didnt arrive until a day later... But, thats the thing that comes with free.Our society is spoiled with these modern features. Who gets up to change theT V ch. or pen and paper? So hats off TN 2 u

I keep getting random calls from random numbers on this app and when I try answering them I automatically get hung up on. When I try to call it back it automatically hangs up after connecting. I've tried turning the calling feature off, I've tried turning off all notifications for this app, but these random calls keep coming through. I've had this app wake me up even when I have all sounds on my phone turned off. Your app sucks!

Great for sending texts wirh pictures. The celluar service that I've paid for sometimes takes 15 to 20 mins to send a picture text if at all. I have gotten so many failed replys trying to send picture texts on paid cellular service. But text now sends it right thru. Service wise its pretty good BUT I think our phones are hacked when we download this app. Ive tried this app twice and each time I have to uninstall apps that I never installed. They appear out of nowhere.

Constant crashes, slows whole phone down, can't send a video longer than 20 seconds?????? WHAT???????? Good God man fix the short video issues at least up to a minute and I'll sweep the whole app being a piece of shnyte under the rug and rate five stars. Edit- just make it where I can send longer videos up to a minute and I'll rate 5 stars BUDDY. PAL. FRIEND.

awesome but wish you didnt have to get a new number when you aint able to sign in after a few days some people dont have wifi access all the time.but i would still recommend this app to my family and friends so please try and fix this problem,i hope you guys fix this problem when i aint able yo sign in,cause its a pain when i have to get a new number and then message who i text and give them a new number

Been using text now for ever, and loved it .one big problem with the app cant use key pad when calling,say you want to press one for English you cant its like the button is stuck and make a beeping noise, cant do anything but hang up even have trouble with that!! Contacted support NO HELP ASKED ME TO DELETE THE APP AND REINSTALL. DIDN'T WORK.

Navigating through the app is a nightmare. Everything is extremely slow, unresponsive, you accidentally open an add page because they shuffle the adds around every time you open the app so if you tap someone's number it will switch at the last second to the add and then it opens. You're also not notified all the time where you're given a message or call and sending text sometimes is annoying because it will just stop at random and you have to send it again. If you fix these then this app is fine

I've been using this app for a couple of weeks and I haven't had a problem periodt Sometimes I just leave the app open while I use other apps to be sure I don't miss a text or call but that for assurance that it will work properly but its really not necessary Overall it's a great wifi working phone line

I do not like cell phones have not had one since 2006. I had to figure something out ant a friend told me about text now. I love it!! It's easy to use other people recognize it so when I call or text they respond! And it's free! The best app I have! I can depend on. I can depend on text now 100% and so can you.

The old text now worked fine for me, i logged out last week and it updated to the new version and now i can't even login at all. I have tried everything but it says my email is invalid even though it still remembered it. I literally just used it.

App constantly freezes, fails to make calls, doesnt allow me to answer incoming calls, constantly erases my wrote out sentence when sending a text. Customer service will constantly repeat the same questions over and over. Sent everything they asked and still was never given a solution or possible cause to the apo crashing. After about 6 emails they just stoppdd responding and the app still doesnt work correctly.

My galaxy s9 which i bought from the textnow worked only for 2 months. Since then everytime I'm trying to make a payment the system says" there's an error connecting to the server " I CANNOT USE MY DIVICE GALAXY S9 which I purchased from the textnow for over $400. SHAME TEXTNOW!!!! They wrote a nice and optimistic response online but nobody had never responded to my email I sent to

Love this app it's very useful for me because I don't have cellphone service where I have WiFi at home so I can use this app to make calls from my home with my wifi...and when I'm out in town where I do have cell service I can still use the app with the mobile data my service provided...only thing I hate are those weird phone numbers that the app provides...if people don't know it's me they likely don't answer because they think I'm a telemarketer or something

The app works great as long as your connection is strong. I also must acknowledge that the service keeps your number assigned to you for a long time without using text now at all however if you don't utilize the app your number will be recycled however they email you warning you to use your account by texting, or at least making a call to save your current assignd number you chosed from being recycled.

Hello, Peep's I read some of the reviews here and I have too say I'm please with this application TextNow. I being using this application for more than 3 year's and I have not had any major set backs. My use of this application it's as back up number. I used it in México works Great there too. I Like this application TextNow. I use this application with/ with out WiFi and works Great.

I've had this app for many years and on several phones. It worked great when I first got it but over the years its gotten pretty bad. Its slow and glitchy, and most of the time it doesn't ring when I have a call, I'll just get a voicemail letting me know I missed a call. Sometimes it won't let me answer or hang up a call.

Works extremely well and the fact that it gives you a number in your personal area code is really helpful, especially if you talk to people who won't answer something from an area code they don't recognize

Will get the job done, unfortunately it will drop your calls on occasion. Best free calling app on the market. If you compose a long TEXT message, long click on it to save it to your device. When your DROPPED out of a TEXT message you still have it, when and if its deleted, lol sometimes even before you finish.

Hands down the easiest text and call app I have had the opportunity to come upon , and as long as your Wi-Fi connection is fair this App provides prompt texts and reply's as well as fantastic reception on local and long distance calls. Not a single dropped call yet for my time and patience TextNow is the App for me!!!!!!!!

HONEST REVIEW: the app works quite well even if you dont pay for it, down side is if you dont pay the adds can be really laggy. Only bug ive really experienced with this app is one time the call glitched when i tried to answer and it messed up my phone. It constantly said their was an incoming call and i couldnt call using any app until i reset my phone.

Would give it 5 stars simply for the fact that I'm able to call and text whoever so long as I'm in wifi if it weren't for the glitchy interface, the unreliability of push notifications, the unresponsiveness of the end button every now and again, the infrequent inability to send a simple text, and above all, the sadistic placement of the ads and their tendency to bounce around the page and end where your finger lands which is very likely not the ad. Please fix these issues..

It is very slow. It also sometimes will let me answer a phone call, but then will cut off completely. Just like with texting. It really needs more speed. Its a great texting app. The best one ive found so far but its super slow.

Its slowly getting better. There is an issue with the adds, sometimes they are just too big & get in the way of texting people. I dont need a huge add popping up, when Im trying to pay bills, it gets in the way of my keyboard! Please shrink adds because they are in the way when Im using the key pad to pay my bills or when Im trying to text. Thank you very much.*** In reply to your app***I know it has to have adds,but when the adds become too large & cover over my hangup button, thats a problem

Dangerous for disabled. I didn't that the phone number expires with little or no warning.. So none of my care providers can contact me and I have to go through the sign up process again as the seems to have been completely forgotten and all text messages disappeared. Now I have to go through all my contacts and send a confusing message giving it new number that makes me look like an idiot. Nearly worthless. I hate and am bumming money of friends and going with T-Mobile contract and a fancy phone

Its just like a normal phone texting and calling service. Except, free. I got it because I dont like giving people my real phone number because i dont want them leaking it. But if i give them this one if they leak it i can change my number or i can uninstall. Uninstalling is the last resort because this app is amazing. If your on tablet it works there to. Just dowbload it already!

I like the app and all i mean if you dont like free call's and texting then you're crazy our old lol. But if im texting someone and i close the app and wait for the responding text, i will not get it unless i open the app back up. Other wise it doesnt even let me know i have a text. But i always get the phone calls no matter what. Its just text that are a problem.


Wonderful app haven't had a problem until about 6 days ago no matter how many times I update the app I still can not successfully log into my account it continues to tell me me there is an issue syncing my messages and proceeds to crash and kick me from the account, even tho the latest update "fixed" the crashing.

I love text now it's everything they say it is there is only one reason I didn't rate it a full 5 it's because I really don't like the fact that it's you don't use it for a certain amount of time you will loose your number. I understand the reasoning I guess but I'm not a big phone person I only use it when I need to so I get a notification about once a month to see a text or something from text now or I'll loose the number at least they tell you first lol

I like it it's ok and its especially ok when u need a phone and cant afford to buy minute for a prepaid cell. Also this app has a lotta cool features that cum with it rite at the start. Yes I would absolutely recommend it 2 any friend or any stranger. And if ya do get it and u dont like it well it was free and u can at anytime uninstall it. And go back to spending ur money🤪🤪🤪🤪👍👍👍🙃🙃

Text Now is an awesome app that allows you to text and call for free . At first I thought it was too good to be true and 2 years later their still the coolest text /calling app that I am aware of!! I would recommend Text Now to anyone interested in saving money . Personslly ive had no problems and with them and i plan to continue on as a satisfied Text Now customer.

I can't be more pleased not to have to step inside of the Metro pcs to pay that fat phone bill. Don't need it. Not as long as there is Text now around. They helped during this rough spot and as soon as I'm good and my money is straight.. I'm upgrading this service and will go out every to convert a Metro customer to make the switch! Just because I want to!

Its the worst calling app ever. Calls end in the middle of a conversation, massive static and I cannot answer if using my internet. Oh yeah, no more ads in the middle of my conversations, I lose my calls every time. Fix your bugs.

Sometimes it's a little slow but its a beneficial texting and calling app you can use it on any computer phone or tablet and even if you loose or break your phone you can still log onto this app from a laptop or tablet and all your contacts will be saved in your TextNow but you definitely need good wifi or data quality because the service can be glitchy and the volume doesn't go very loud you have a hard time hearing but texting quality is good and you can send and receive pictures

I love using this app! I havent had any problems with it ( yet! 😝) plus it allows u 2 get bonus credits that really count when u need them just by watching ads .. Im sending invites to all of my contacts u never kno when these free calls/texts will come in handy im keepin mine as loaded with credits as poasible for those rainy days....

My only issue within this app is it freezes up constantly and thees always atleast 4 sec or more delay once i click to open app it starts then takes about 4 sec and more to take me to inbox. Now, 1 other thing is ive always used android phones and i have had various diff brands and models of cell phones that i dwnlded text now on to use as a sec line even when ive had cell service and not just borrowed wifi, and its like right away it causes the same kind of delays and freezes apps

It's a great free app, it serve all my purposes and if some complains about it, we'll then they should have been smart enough to make there own "Company Mobile International application to all networks". But to what really matters.... I love it.

It's an ok app. The call feature messes up a lot so I don't even try to use it. Normally, the text feature works except when I've a lot of texts coming through at once or when someone trys to call on the app. Then the app freezes for a few minutes. Not cool.

TextNow is an awesome app! It's literally so convenient to be able to make calls & texting through the internet. And not to mention it's totally free but you can also get Data plans through them as well. I'm giving text now a 5 🌟 rating because it's always a pleasure to work with a great app like this one.

Has gotten better now protects their users better. For both paid and free side. I've used them since they started with both free and paid accounts. They are ways improving the product. However I do not like the time period they turn over a number. Have lost valuable contacts like that.

This app is ok if you only use it occasionally but if you have too many contacts it shuts down and you lose your number. I was trying to use it with my business but its useless and if i need to pay for it I may as well use a real provider anyway. I have had better luck with other free texting apps.

So amazing but it doesn't work great without Wi-Fi and everybody doesn't have enough money to pay Wi-Fi so other than that it is a good app and I appreciate it whoever made this app thank you hope this app get really far and this person who makes it gets a lot of money I hope that you get an upgrade on it it is very amazing i will share it to all my family and friends so I rate this a 100/100 You're welcome very much and I hope you will be able to read this and I hope others will learn from it
