    5 years and still going strong!

    When I needed to cut down on my expenses I chose to use an app that gave me what I needed from my phone minus the monthly cost. I downloaded the TextNow app and have been using it ever since. I have had the same number for the entire time and have transferred it to several different phones since 2013. I’m typing this on my Apple X. If you don’t mind receiving calls and text messages only when you’re in WiFi you’re good to go. It works very well with Optimum cable because of all the WiFi Hot Spots. You can make and receive calls and texts on the go. If I ever want to get a phone plan, TextNow also has the lowest plans that I know. I highly recommend this app.

    I like it but there are some issues.

    TextNow is an amazing app, don’t get me wrong. I can talk to lots of people and I really love it. However, there are some MAJOR issues I’m having. I have had my phone for a little under a year and I am not sure if it’s the phone or the app. I get on it and I go to text someone. In the middle of typing, the app will suddenly crash. I will go back into it and it doesn’t save the draft. So I have to re-Type everything. That’s an issue that needs to be fixed. Another issue is when I watch a video someone sent me, it’s completely normal. I go off the video and I go to text them right? Well it all the sudden freezes and then a white screen appears, showing a bar at the top and a play/pause button on the bottom, almost like a video. It either crashes the entire app, makes me start all over on typing again, or just gets on my nerves with how often it does this. Another issue is how slow it goes. It’s extremely slow when I first enter the app and if I need to send an urgent text, it will take FOREVER to load. Also, when I am listening to background music and I’m trying to text someone, not only will it crash but it messes with the music, making it sound really glitchy and I find it uncomfortable and disturbing. Now, the app is great. I love it. I would really love if these issues are fixed! Thank you!

    Calling won’t work, can’t receive texts

    So I have been using TextNow for a LONG time, and I can say it is one of the best messaging apps I have ever used, I can use it for friends who don’t have their number registered with iMessage. But I have to point out a few things wrong: when I try to start or receive a call, either the caller can hear me and I cannot hear them, or the other way around. I would like to have this fixed because calls can be very important and it is quite annoying. Next thing, sometimes I can’t receive texts. If I was having a conversation with someone, I have to leave their chat and go to the main ‘home’ screen of TextNow, and wait for them to send a message or for it to come in. It does not happen all the time but I would like to be able to not have to refresh the page etc, to receive messages. I hope this review was understandable and I tried my best to be clear with the issues I am having. Thank you for listening.

    Quick and easy to deal with

    I’ve been using this app for a couple of months now, and I feel very happy with the results it’s a wonderful tool when you have a small business or you just need a different phone number. The only thing I didn’t like is that apparently the person who had my current number before had a lot of debt, so it took me a while to get rid of all those unwanted calls from Debt collectors that I was getting on daily bases at all times. Other than that I’m very happy with the service, I’m still learning about it, for ex. Now I know that pictures or videos that I received by text are only there temporarily also I know that in order to don’t lose your number you need to upgrade to premium to lock your number or use the service because your number can be revoke due to inactivity. Other than that you service is good, props to the team of TextNow.
