This app has solved ALL my dropped calls, bad connections and no service! Wish I would have installed ages ago. I dont dread making important calls now! update: I've used this app for almost 5 years. I've had minor issues but nothing huge but there was an update a week ago and I can't send pictures or videos to anyone any more! Very frustrating. I've done everything thing on my end to "fix" it so I'm assuming it's a bug! If not fix soon I will stop using!!! Very frustrating

Recently I Lost my phone luckily I had my tablet to download this app. It helps me to get in contact with people Letting them know that I had lost my Phone and was able to provide them with a secondary way of contacting me until I was able to purchase a replacement. I thought once that had happened. I would delete this app and move on with life. However, I have kept it since I have found it to be quite useful. For more than just a quick fix. The call and text quality in superb Highly recommend

At first, a few years ago when using textnow, the connection was terrible! But, after some upgrades, and improvements, the platform or system works (almost) like a regular wireless phone call, with good clear reception. Other than that, the ads are a (nuisance) when you're trying to make certain calls, unlike Messenger, Whatsapp, or Skype, whereas no ads to interrupt you when you're making a call.
