About this Plan

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.
