    JENNIFERNADINEROME RO Published date: July 18, 2017

    LOVELY! You buy the phone number. So depending on your wifi reception it is as good as you make it. But a year permanent phone number at twenty unbeatable. I pay twenty for unlimited service a month on my tablet. Pay twenty for text now for a year. This tablet has unlimited exactly or better than cell services majority of the time. Well really... it puts ALL OF THE PHONE SERVICES TO SHAME LMFAO. SO THANK YOU TEXT NOW... MWAH You will receive voice mails caller ID missed calls when you get connected. Etc, Full Review

    Phone call connections suck. Without wifi this app sucks. Internet connection sucks. Only worth the lowest plan. Best bet is to use this app for free and bring your own device on a wifi connection. HORRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE. Scammers!! Internet phone number service company. Not supported by many other apps. Go with a ligit phone company to avoid future prob lems. Full Review

    Normally, I would give 5 stars. But I've been having issues with it, and there is NO troubleshooting or help or anything. It worked great up until yesterday. I was not receiving texts people had sent, so I cleared the cache and everything, didn't help (it usually does help with that problem). Tried uninstalling and then reinstalling, and now it won't let me sign in at all, keeps saying there is an error. Need help ASAP!!! Full Review

    Great app, gives you a separate phone number, and choice of number from your area code, that you can call from and text from. Access to all your contacts, from the app, also you can view all text messages, and get voice mails. The ability to combine all messages with your number, or separate if you like. Really fun too 📱📕🤓🤓 Full Review

    I love the app, Love the free number, love the free texting and calling. But there's just one thing I don't like about the app: The app photo looks really corny and I just wish it would look a little less corny and a little more like the Android Messages logo. Full Review

    Access Denied Published date: July 17, 2017

    I had majors problems with this using a phone I bought from them. Nothing could fix the issue. I have a new phone now and the app works perfectly for me. I just use premium on my new phone because I hate ads. Works like it should. Nice to have a 2nd number and not have to give out my main mobile number. Full Review

    Service could be better . This is my phone carrier and not just an app I appreciate the unlimited calls and texts but reception is sketchy. When i try to send a picture it sends over and over and over. Like 5 6 7 times. Also there has been times TextNow has shut off my service for using my 2g Internet although its said to be unlimited. When i had to use my sister's phone to call them to see what was going on i was notified that if you use too much they shut off the service. (So why say unlimited 🤔😑😒) need better prices for 4g. Not only does the net get shut off, so does your ability to make calls... everything is gone and you need another phone to call support. Other little quirks. However service is slowly improving as they create more features. Its good to see progression. And reasonably priced phones is a plus. Thanks Full Review

    Please correct me if I'm wrong. I believe this is A Canadian Company. If so, why are we the last to get the amazing offers for service. Please tell me when you will launch in Canada! Full Review

    kirkalx27 Published date: July 18, 2017

    Very cool and effective. Worth it to have an app that can help you communicate as long as there is WiFi. Perfect for those without access to a phone and have only a tablet or whose phone ran out of time for whatever reason. Good backup plan for parents on a budget and want to keep in touch with their kids. I think the paid plans look interesting. Full Review
