No issues with device or service thus far. TextNow offers best to near best prices on all it's phones (right now). Talk&Text + 500MB or 1GB plans pricing is almost unmatched by anyone. 2GB plan is competitive. 4GB plan is not recommended but with the money saved on the device, isn't unreasonable. Customer Support is excellent (call in for best results). An the ability to call an text from other devices is fantastic. My only real gripe is voice quality is a little iffy. Not terrible but not perfect either.
LOVE THE PHONE AND PLANS, BUT CANT GET TO USE WHATAPP, THEY SAY THE NUMBER PROVIDED IS INVALID. THAT'S THE ONLY THING I HATE ABOUT TEXT NOW WIRELESS. I guess the reason is because of text now uses proxys. Please try to find a way for people to have legit number that can be verified on any application . The number you give us is considered invalid and could never be verified due to the proxy. I like texnow, and thats my only gripe.
I was expecting this to be just another scam to earn credits for calling, but I am pleasantly surprised this app actually delivers what it says! Sign up was easy and gave me a local Canadian Hamilton number. SMS sending & receiving is fast, and I can receive the android emoticons which I couldn't receive on other similar apps. Calling to Canadian numbers seems to be actually free and unlimited; voice latency comparable to Google Hangouts and voice quality is like normal cell quality (but not HD). App also allows a fair amount of personal customization of colour themes. It is ad-supported, but they stay out of the way and do not explode to full-screen sizes. Great app; really appreciate your offered services!
Upset I paid for my credits yesterday around 1:50am & here it is 7:51pm & i still don't have my 100 credits but you guys charged my PayPal account smh. Bad business
Textnow Great phone plan but it suffers from some serious shortcomings in the message /call notification relays to the phone. Notifications to the device are often missing or not in real time. Email notifications are reliable but also often lag significantly behind real time and originate from an unknown time zone.
Missing texts Fix this problem that's it, missing texts. Not receiving text. Not useful if your not getting texts. Please fix.
