I've been using the free app for years. It's awesome for people who can't afford to pay for a real phone plan, but who have Wi-Fi or access to free Wi-Fi, making it even better. TextNow doesn't hav...e phone plans in Canada yet, so my rating is only for the free app. I recommend it to everyone but the app could be better but for free it's great See More

I was using the wifi app alone for a while, and it's great for that, but that's about it. I stupidly decided to give in and get a plan, in case of emergency when wifi wasn't available. That was pointl...ess, the service is crap! I'm almost always roaming and when I'm not roaming there's this exclamation point next to the service bars. I've had 4g available for maybe an hour out of the last several months. I get 3g more than 4g (even though I'm paying for 4g) but it seems like as soon as I even look at the damn phone it goes right back to roaming. So what am I really paying for...? I am ditching TextNow and I cannot wait to be able to actually use my phone without a wifi connection! See More

terrible customer service.
its 4:30 and its closed.
shut my ability to send texts down 4 times in 3 days. ...
had to spend 30mins each time with support to get it turned back on. the system will shut your line down if you so much as copy and paste a message twice.
no real "call forwarding"
no auto reply
which both sideline and textfreenow have
even if you pay for premium it sucks! do not get locked is as I have!
their ability to port your number to another service is next to none!

I have had a TextNow account for many years. I have had phone service with them for many years. I have been so pleased with the quality, cost and customer service so much that my children, parents and... siblings all have TextNow accounts. I highly recommend this company to others. I know and have heard how terrible this company supposedly is but honestly.. I have never had a problem. Matter of fact, I did have a issue with my phone dropping in a pool and they sent me a replacement within two days! Couldn't be happier! See More

What an angel to put up with my likes and ...dislikes Nd changing my mind and she just knew exactly what to do. Yes I would recommend text now phone service they care about making you a satisfied customer! See More

I want to give them 3.5 stars or even closer to that fourth star but oh well. I use the free app on my iPad Pro and so far for the phone calls I get an echo. Also a better notification for texts would... be great. That said the phone calls and texts are free. I’ve even used this app while using cellular on my iPad with no problems. Folks need to try this app! See More

For the love of all things holy this service is crap. I purchased 3 phones from textnow in the past month; 2 of them do not work. For the third time in less than 2 weeks, I've been stuck in a chat for... over FIVE hours and counting trying to get resolution. I had 4 different employees trying to help me, now they've given me back to the second one who gave up an hour ago. WHY do I need to waste 5+ hours of my day to get NOWHERE?!? FFS maybe you hire some people who aren't complete retards and maybe do a better job refurbishing your phones? I was going to purchase another 2 phones and add 2 more lines to my account but forget it. If I wanted this much trouble I would've gone through Verizon. Now I'm finally told I am out of luck and textnow won't be helping me, even though they sent me a p.o.s. battery which caused the phone to malfunction. You suck. I'm going back to my old provider and you people can eat shit. See More

I was very excited to finally get an affordable phone and service. But received my phone with a bad charger. Customer service was rude and not helpful. I was told i could go get a cheap charger at a ...gas station. I paid for my phone and they sent it with a used and broken charger. How is it my responsibility to get my own charger? Horrible company or at least horrible customer service. See More

Excellent company with a real human touch to the customer experience. Not only ultra-affordable plans but some of the most incredible pricing you will see for non-contract devices. I happily recommend TextNow!

No numbers at all for certain areas of Ontario causing people to get charged long distance calling for anyone who calls you. Tried going to support to get a proper number and they claimed they can't g...ive me one. Will no longer be using their services See More

You're way to expensive! I found lower price and better coverage along with incredible voice reception. Listen to your former customers it might serve you well over the long haul

This is definitely an app you have to have especially when you're in a dead spot for data and WiFi is available

Do not use the paid features....they will not refund you found no satisfaction with they're service. The free app is better...i wish, i can give a zero.
