I never realized what an invaluable app this is until I had to stay in a place with very little cell phone reception. That was very scary because my husband is disabled and the fear of not being able to connect with help in an emergency was overwhelming for him. Then I remembered I had the Text now app and the relief was enormous. and the calls are clear and rarely drop unless there's a disruption on the other end.

Good app, with a slight problem. My calls and texts sometimes just don't come through. I'll get a call, and just completely miss it but get a notification that says that I missed a call. Other than this, the app works great. Ads are a bummer, but I get that they need ads to keep the app free. But I hope this problem gets fixed

I have been attempting to get in touch with their customer support for days now. Every time I get in, i am logged out of the app. My speeds have been extremely slow since the switch to a TextNow sim card. I have been paying for 3GB but I barely get 1 because of slow speeds. Support is only open until 2:30 pm and there's absolutely no way to contact them (no email/phone line) except live chatting before then. Disappointed in the slow service since April.
