Notes

When you sign up for TextNow, you must use their mobile application to make calls and send texts. TextNow’s application allows you to make calls and send texts anywhere you have WiFi connection, even if you have no cell reception. This can be a game-changer for people who travel frequently and can help improve call quality and message reliability. TextNow’s app also allows you to sign in to your account and send messages from your laptop, tablet, or other connected devices. 

The HUGE disadvantage to TextNow’s app is that it means you can’t use iMessage on iPhone. :( Sorry, iPhone users. This plan may not be for you…

If you are willing to compromise, then TextNow’s plans are affordable, include a variety of features, and offer group savings. 

Discount

TextNow offers a family discount. You save about $10/month/line that you add. Here’s the breakdown:

  • $29 5GB plan: $23 per additional line
  • $39 unlimited plan: $30 per additional line
Coverage

TextNow uses Sprint and T-Mobile for coverage.

Features

Stateside International

International Coverage

While you will not get cell reception while traveling internationally, TextNow will continue to work anywhere you have WiFi. This may include your hotel, coffee shops, airports, or other places with free public internet access. 

Add-ons

TextNow has affordable international calling rates which you can check out on their website. 

Plan Specific Features

You’ll get the same experience on TextNow with their $3 plan and up. However, their free plan has some differences.
