More about TextNow

TextNow is the world's first cloud-based cell phone carrier which means it connects its users through wifi and a downloadable app. TextNow runs off the Sprint 4G LTE network and provides customers with worry free, no contract plans. TextNow is a free app that can be downloaded on all types of devices. Whether it's on a phone and/or tablet and/or computer, users will still have the same number.

Texts and calls will be synced with a user's TextNow account, allowing them to see their messaging threads and phone numbers from the TextNow web app or from any of their other mobile apps. In order to do this, customers need to sign into their account on their other devices.

All plans include rollover minutes, meaning if a user doesn’t use all the minutes in one month, she can continue using them through future billing cycles. If a customer is purchasing her own device, she will need to purchase the device in full from TextNow’s online phone store. TextNow offers phones from companies like Samsung, Motorola and Google. However, TextNow does not offer phones to be purchased via monthly installment payment plans.

If customers are bringing their own devices, the devices must previously run off the Sprint 4G LTE network. Even though TextNow doesn’t sell iPhones, users can now bring their own iPhone to TextNow.

TextNow offers a free Wi-Fi only version of their plan available for download on any device. This includes Wi-Fi texting and calling only. If customers are satisfied with TextNow after using the free app Wi-Fi plan, they can then start a paid plan with their new or existing number. All TextNow phones come with a 30 Day money back guarantee and a 1-year warranty. TextNow will even pay for the packaging and shipping to have the phone returned.

Fast Facts: TextNow

iPhone SE

TextNow is the world's first cloud-based cell phone carrier. A cloud-based carrier is a carrier that connects its users through Wi-Fi and a downloadable app. 

  • Network: TextNow offers coverage through WiFi and nation-wide data networks. To see if TextNow is a good fit, check their site for CDMA and GSM coverage maps. 
  • Coverage: TextNow uses your WiFi connection first, when it is available (even for text & calls). When there is no WiFi connection, TextNow will use Sprint's nationwide 2G voice, 3G, and 4G network for CDMA phones and SIM cards, and a nation-wide GSM network for GSM SIM cards.
  • Where to Buy: Since TextNow operates entirely online, plans and phones are available for purchase on the their website. 
  • Bring Your Own Phone to Credo:  Those with compatible devicess from Sprint, Boost or Virgin Mobile, can activate their current phones on TExtNow's network. If you own an unlocked CDMA or GSM-enabled device, TextNow offers SIM cards to use with your device.
  • Tethering: At this moment in time, TextNow does not service or support tethering or mobile hotspot

Fact: When there is no WiFi available, TextNow phones will use Sprint's nationwide 4G LTE cellular network.
