AdsI like the app, but it has too many adds and makes you pay quite a bit to get rid of them.Version: 21.13.0

No Sound for incoming calls??The app itself is laid out very well and very simple to use. I don’t see any settings for sounds for incoming calls at all. So when someone calls you you don’t even hear the phone you only get a tiny notification beep when you call first comes through and then after the person hangs up you hear a little tone but no ringing in between which is annoying. So naturally 9 times out of 10 you miss a call. Is there a way to fix this? I’ve tried to go through the sounds and the iPhone settings and notifications and there is no option within the app either on the sounds for their notifications for messages. Help? I’ll rare this at 3 stars because I like it but it would be higher had it have the option for someone to hear a telephone call come through...Version: 9.28.0

Unknown callersStupid numbers that I don’t know always calling it’s retarded.Version: 9.28.1

Disgusting appBlocked ability to receive verification code, can not access my accounts any more. Received verification phone call, they blocked the sound, change to Openphone now, much better value..Version: 21.14.0

Complete TRAIN WRECKI’ve had this app for seven months. At first it worked fine with no issues whatsoever, but after the first couple months my calls started disconnecting consistently. After checking the call history log I realized that it was exactly at five minutes. Sure enough, after conducting an online search it stated that the calls were limited to five minutes if you were considered to be a “have a user” (whatever that’s supposed to mean). So they allow you to use the “free” app, but they limit you. Several months have gone by and the app performance is deteriorating to the point where I literally don’t want to use it at all anymore. Calls are dropping constantly. Static on the line. People that I’m speaking with are constantly complaining that they can’t hear me. I wouldn’t recommend this app to anyone. I’ve switched to another free app and it works perfectly with no issues whatsoever. This app is absolutely a disaster. If I could give it -5 stars I would..Version: 9.11.0

Conversations won’t openI’ll get a notification for a text and go to open it and the entire text conversation is blank. The same thing happens when I send a text, it’ll send but the entire text conversations is blank..Version: 21.11.1

OkayI do love this app I use it all the time but sometimes when I press the hang up button it is really slow and glitchy and when I go to the app it will shut me out of it when I’m only in the app for 3 seconds but again I use this app all the time but I also get a lot of random numbers call and text me and it does get super annoying but I love this app so so so much I use it so much and it’s just really slow and glitchy but I mean it is what it is also this app is very very slow and glitchy when I go on the app it will take a while for it to actually load even when I full bars of WiFi’s and everything I think maybe it’s just really slow and I noticed if I get more than 13 phone numbers it will delete my most recent person I texted and if I don’t use my app for a 3 days it will log me out and say I need to get a new number I have spent so much time on this app and it’s not that good of quality I hop you guys the best to try and fix it and this app would be the bomb but as of right now it’s not such a great app🥰!.Version: 20.21.0

Best friend psychoMy best friend dragged me into this app and and now I know it’s a scam!!!.Version: 9.30.1

Why tho?Why is it even in the Australian store if it’s only for Americans?.Version: 9.3.2

New updateWhy is the new update telling me to upgrade my account to get verification codes? It wasn’t like this before why change now.Version: 21.12.1

NZ?Can you make it work for New Zealand? 🇳🇿.Version: 20.22.0

Buyer bewareIf you buy the app like I did to avoid the advertisements you can expect the advertising to continue. I did the free version for a while and thought if I buy it then I won’t have to see the adds again, boy was I wrong. The adds never went away, the only thing that went away was my money from my bank. The app is also slow as heck, it is slow when you send photos, it is slow when you type messages, it’s just slow slow slow. The pros to having the app, I downloaded it on my desktop computer, I can type on a keyboard, I use it for business to text customers about their auto repair, and they think it’s my cellphone and I get to tell them “I’m sorry but I use a texting app to text from my office computer”. This way they don’t get my personal cell number. So, pros and cons, everything has them. But to pay for an ad free app and they still are there makes me not happy. So keep your money and use the free version, there is no difference..Version: 9.18.0

Not happyThe last update turned my app blank. Unfortunately I can’t remember my email and this is the only way for me to regain access. So I see people are messaging me but I can not see what it says. There isn’t a way to talk to anyone live thus everything is via text. I ask if they could send me a message to verify my account I was told no. I asked if I could verify the phone by my device id I was told no. I could verify 3 numbers that have texted me on the number. There should be more than one way to verify your account. Or an easier way to regain access to your account and speaking to a person would be nice. There are very important messages on the number. You collect my Device ID, my location and have the ability to conduct a diagnostic test on the app crashing. You could choose to use this data to help individuals whom forgot their email address or mistyped their email address to retrieve their account (even if there was a small fee) Please do more to assist other than have me validated an email address that I could have mistyped. Please.Version: 21.5.0

Not impressedThis app is terrible. So many pop ups and you have to pay to get verification codes. I got locked out of Instagram and I can’t get back in causing me to make a new account.Version: 21.13.0

Spam call errorThere’s a spam caller and possible pedophile with the number 299-999-9999 do not pick up!.Version: 21.13.0

Don’t do it!!I’ve been using Text Now for a few months. At first, it started out like a great substitution for the more expensive (and horrible) Sprint service I’ve been wasting my money on. Since they both use the same network, I’d rather pay less for unreliable and sketchy phone service. But believe me, Text Now service is not at all reliable either. You won’t get much reception indoors, your texts msgs may or may not send, and there will be times when you won’t get phone calls. Anyway, my rant today is because TextNow took things to a new low. Today my bill is due and they SHUT ME OFF on the day it’s due. AND it’s a Saturday, so I can’t transfer money from my savings account into my (bill paying) account until Monday. I take complete ownership for not remembering about transferring sooner. Thanksgiving was just 2 days ago and I lost all sense of time in the planning. But to give NO notice is going too far. Since I drive for Uber, I cannot work or earn money either until Monday as well and I’M FURIOUS!!! They are screwing with my livelihood. So PLEASE reconsider your choice to use this service. Don’t be dumb like me. Find another way. Or someday you’ll be writing a scathing review too..Version: 9.28.0

It’s Free... But At A CostI’ll start by saying free service is free service. I couldn’t be more grateful to have unlimited calling and texting via cellular and not just WiFi. All of my 3 stars go to this and this alone because that’s where the good stops. The ads are annoying but sure, but that’s what you get with free service so I won’t complain to much. Reception is mediocre at best but again... free. However, the app itself is VERY LAGGY. Half of the time, I don’t even get notified of a phone call, even when hooked up to WiFi and it cannot be blamed on poor service. I’ve had entire conversations poof into thin air without me manually deleting them, only to find out later that I had missed a new message or call from said person because of the conversation being magically deleted. At the end of the day, TextNow needs to get their act together and provide us a well functioning app. If it doesn’t improve in the future, I’ll have to look elsewhere and I’m sure others will as well..Version: 20.14.1

GarbageDoesn’t work half the time..Version: 21.14.0

This used to be my favorite texting app...I’ve been a TextNow user for many years, ever since 2011, and haven’t run into so much trouble until recently when their ads just became unbearable. I believe in ads and have even tried buying their service several times. However, the ads are ruining the experience. Whenever I enter the app and tap on a contact and begin to type a message the app just freezes. I sometimes end up calling my boss on accident due to the horrible lag. The actual texting and calling is good otherwise. The texting is far better than the calling at times. I have unlimited data, but this apps can go from working great to not working at all in seconds. I can see that it’s the ads causing all the issues. My fix would be to have ads take up less data or use less ads or use a better way to get these ads on the app. Please fix this devs. It gets very confusing and frustrating when I can’t use the app due to all the ads. I will try to get a plan to remove the ads, but the normal service is advertised as free. I do hope you can fix the interface to run smoothly once again. I will return to the app when it gets better..Version: 9.8.1

Manipulative ad placement.I have used text now for a long time. I use to pay for ad free but not I don't use it so much so I just pay to keep my number. The ad placement is very manipulative. They constantly shift the placement to get you to accidentally click one. It is very annoying..Version: 21.14.0

Tos violation?Did anyone make an account and immediately get a violation error? literally created it then told I was in violation....Version: 9.19.0

Too many issues....Text know has way too many issues I get call drops all the time disconnect wile on the phone, delay phone calls all the time while talking on the phone it goes on like mute all of a sudden to where you just don’t hear anything. And I can never answer my phone half the time it will not ring until someone leaves me a voicemail and then it disconnects. And if it does ring and I answer it no one‘s there the call like completely drops if I’m lucky that I can answer it and it goes blank a lot of the times to were it’s just a blank white screen and getting messages or phone calls like a day later. The ad can be a nuisance sometimes where you are texting and then all of a sudden your full screen turns into an ad and then you have to stop what you’re doing and then find the exit button when it appears and get back out and finish texting. I think that sums it up for the main issues that I’ve had with it 🤦‍♀️.Version: 20.43.0

App is incredible LaggyThe app is incredibly laggy when texting other people. This is the only app that is doing so on my phone.Version: 9.17.1

Not working as well as it once did.Frequent dropped calls and missed calls lately, phone never rings anymore when calls come in, text notifications do work, this app worked great for many years now not so good, time to move on..Version: 20.44.1

It sucks on apple devicesCan hear my call but nobody can hear me and often never hears me nothing wrong with microphone had it checked by apple providers.Version: 21.13.0

Can’t receive verification codes anymore without payingThe reason why I have been using textnow for years was because it was free. Now they are asking us to pay to receive verification code messages. Won’t use textnow anymore..Version: 21.14.0

This App Should Be Removed, App Almost Ruined My Relationship...I’m so very late on writing this review but I don’t recommend getting this app If your gonna mess or prank someone because I got this random text from this person that I didn’t know and had told me that she knows my boyfriend and say that he was cheating on me and have been dating him and even knew his nickname and that had me very concerned because only his “friends” or “best friends” know his nickname and had thought one of his friends were pranking him. I told my boyfriend and even showed him the messages and he was trying his best to find this person that was messaging me lies and when this person tried to show me “ evidence” of pictures of her and my boyfriend there was nothing there so this person had to lie. So on this day (2020) I still have the messages saved on my phone just in case something like this happened again and I had also changed my number, DO NOT GET THIS APP!.Version: 20.35.0

Beware of data collection scamI registered my email and hoping to get a Canadian phone no and they have not a single number available in Canada. As soon as i am logged in it say i violated their terms and conditions but i was never give a phone no. There is no way to contact them and it appears they created this app to collect your details and sell it to third party. Apple should shut them down from app store..Version: 20.19.0

MehThis app is okay. Be careful with what you say and use a strong password. If you have any issues with your account, message the textnow Facebook account. They respond immediately on there and had my issue resolved within minutes. However the customer service email and phone number are basically useless..Version: 21.15.0

It keeps crashingAll day I’ve been trying to go onto TextNow to check my messages but whenever I do, a plain black screen comes up and it keeps crashing. It’s starting to get really annoying honestly. I’ve tried everything I could to eat it to work but nothing helped. I want to uninstall then reinstall it but it will get rid of my data and messages on it and I don’t want that to happen. Why does it keep crashing?.Version: 8.33.0

Unknown callsHi, I’ve been using text now for a while and the app has never done this to me before but, I’ve been getting random phone calls from unknown callers, so don’t use this app unless you want random phone calls from random callers! 😡🤬 I am very angry!!.Version: 9.6.0

The call doesn’t work on data now.The calls don’t work on data only on wifi recently. Text messages work on both. Please fix that..Version: 20.37.0

Y'all really need to fix the iPad app version as well as some Apple Watch issuesThe iPhone version is fine. The IPad one has trouble sending texts from the notifications. Sometimes ill type a message on my iPad only to find out that it never sent and my message is gone. That is annoying. Also i have my iPad in landscape basically all the time and when i open the app, its all messed up. I need to turn my iPad to portrait mode and back to landscape mode for the app to correct its self. This is annoying. ALSO i cant reply very well to messages on my Apple Watch. Sometimes ill compose a message and click send and forget about it. Only to find out that my message was never sent. Please fix this. I like this app on my iPhone but its not the greatest experience on the iPad or Apple Watch. I use an IPad 4 on iOS 10.3.3 if you must know. Thanks Devs!!.Version: 9.5.0

TextNowI downloaded this app to receive free unlimited texts and calls and when I called my cousin on my cellphone the phone hung up on her and when I called again she said she can barely hear me on my cellphone she ask me why the music was loud in my back ground, my back ground was quite so I told her hang up and I will call her on another phone , I tried to deal with this app I recently used this app once before and the problems I was having was couldn’t text , I was receiving someone else’s texts , so I was afraid to used the phone afraid that someone else would be on the other side of the phone , I wouldn’t know , so I deleted this app , I decided to give it another try and it still acting crazy , Now I understand when apps are FREE things don’t work out like they suppose to , So I’m writing to let you know about your TEXTNOW APP , it’s not working properly and your company needs to work on it and fix it , if you want people to used your service........Version: 20.43.0

Crashes all the timeCan’t use app without it crashing. ALWAYS. Super annoying. On iOS 14. Fix it or will uninstall.Version: 21.14.0

Scam like the restJust a big scam like the rest of these text apps. If you want to waste your money sign up. You can’t even contact them so you know what that means “Just suck it up ya lost your cash”.Version: 21.5.0

Selecting a phone number based on area code has been buggy.Selecting a phone number based on area code has been buggy. Unable to generate any phone number to choose from. I tried many different area codes within 400 km but I keep getting “Error” message saying there’s no available numbers. I highly doubt that’s even possible..Version: 21.14.0

Took my money.The app gave me the option to pay 6.49 to lock in my number for a year, so I did that. Over the next few days I get a couple emails saying if I don’t send a text/call I’ll lose the number, so I send a text to keep it. A week later I get an email saying my number has been reassigned despite having paid to “lock it in!” Do not pay for any extras or to keep your number because clearly that means nothing..Version: 21.14.0

Works great but one weird issue....I love TextNow! I have used it for years and it has had its share of bugs and glitches but they always get updated and fixed in the end! I will continue to use the app but I have experienced a few “Call Interferences” that kind of freak me out when they happen. It’s only happened about 3 times and I cannot find anything online about anyone else who is experiencing this issue but basically what happens is - I’ll be on the phone with my boyfriend or someone else and everything is just fine but then all of the sudden the call gets really staticy and a separate voice from ours enters the call as if we just called them and their answering their phone! At first I thought my boyfriend was messing with me but I have had this experience while talking to other people as well! When I respond to the voice they can’t hear us but I know I’m not crazy because the person I am talking to hears it to. Please look into this..Version: 20.2.1

Why can’t you provide a phone number for Sri LankaI started to use this app and noticed you can’t get a number fr my country, so therefore can u pls help me with this. My country code is +94..Version: 8.34.0

Advertisements Ruin this AppI believe in advertiser support for a free app but they are so INVASIVE in Text now that it is barely usable. Ads run in between every 4-5 calls, they are so large I accidentally click them when trying to scroll recent calls. I’m sure this is intentional. Ads pop up and end calls 4-5 times daily and end business calls. Do not depend on this app for anything important! It will fail and embarrass you. When app opens you are FORCED to wait up to 2 minutes for ad to time out and it never self closes. I have to find the close on the ad which is someplace different on every ad. Don’t try to make last minute calls or dial 911, you will definitely be waiting. DEVELOPERS: make the app closable after a specified time, like 15-20 seconds, trust me I know what your seller is selling after watching for that long. App never terminated calls from advertisements and ran 2 entire minutes until a few month ago. App is only useful if you do not mind waiting 2minutes to make a call and having your calls CONSTANTLY disconnected by ads..Version: 21.8.0

TrashI lost my number but it was their fault because their app was down also you have to pay 8 dollars now for codes.Version: 21.13.0

Read The Terms! Stores, Shares, Sells Your Data!Every single text, image, video, or any other attachment is scanned by TextNow. Now idk if it's AI or an actual person monitoring your device, but regardless, it's extremely sketchy business and completely invades the users privacy. Many other communications and public forum platform apps do the same. I'd highly recommend reading the Terms & Conditions and Privacy Policies on the apps you allow on your phone! Every secret you text, every nude photo you've sent, sites you visit, and anything in between, is NOT protected or private by any means and will likely be used against you when the Social Credit System(China already implemented) rolls out in the USA. Apps like Facebook have already started the process, prescribing what political views it's users are allowed to share and talk about. The purpose of such a system is to control our behavior and penalize those stepping out of line, plain and simple. Worried? You should be....Version: 9.15.0

Very good app but,TextNow is very good for talking to other people there’s a variety of things you can do on this app but there is a problem that either affects only me or maybe others it’s that you can’t log in it will give you a notification while logging in that there is an error I hope to have this fixed because I have a lot of conversations on the app that are private and it is my business number this is very troubling.Version: 21.12.1

EwIf I could give this no stars I would. I personally got this because I can’t afford a phone number why would I pay for a number from this stupid app.Version: 21.11.1

TextNow, what happened?Have been using TN for a couple years and considered it a 4-5 star app that I truly loved... but that was until the last couple months. According to what my iPhone says I do believe I have the newest version.. idk what the issue is. Several problems: •Phone will ring, but instead of given the answer/reject options, my screen says I’m already In the call. And my phone is still ringing out loud but I can’t answer it. Sometimes killing the app won’t make the ringing stop and I have to reset my phone. •75% of the time I AM able to answer the call, it is dead silence on the other end and vice versa. •Phone calls are just a wreck. Several textnow user friends of mine are having the same issues. Anything from basic glitching, lagging, can’t hear the other person well, etc. WEIRDest thing is: •My friend signed into their account one time for a few minutes. A long time ago. Since then, anytime she gets a call, that call also will ring my accounts, just whichever one I’m signed into at the time. This happens on any device I’m using. Her sign in was never saved or linked or anything it is SUPER weird. Sometimes it won’t actually ring but I will get the missed call notification. This also happens to some of my personal calls. •Phone call lags. I’ll say something and the other person hears it a couple seconds late and vice versa(like when news reporters are talking to each other from different locations).Version: 20.34.0

Dreadful Support! Dreadful useless app!#1: USE TALKU OR DINGTONE!! always guaranteed credits to earn through watching videos and playing games-very interactive! And one of the best for free-yes free international calls and texts that actually go through! It’s not perfect 100% of the time but it’s gotten so much better. Avoid TEXTNOW. You’re lucky if you can earn one credit a day. Talking to support today made me want to literally rip my eyes out because I was going in circles with someone who clearly didn’t read or understand not only the initial issue, but know what’s in their FAQs and articles. 1st, they have a submit a request feature through the app, but then when you submit a request, you get a canned reply through email saying they don’t use that anymore and to utilize chat instead. Then you need to remove anything that is obsolete from your app!! A customer should not be going in circles to try to get help. I had to explain to this person practically 3 times what I was referring to. For example-they say you can complete offers for credit but there is nowhere to ever do that! So do not refer me to Tap Joy when you don’t even offer the opportunity to earn credits for offers! It was just awful… I wind up turning off the message communication with this person because my patience was depleted..Version: 9.29.0

EhhTo many ads, when I am trying to type there’s just to many ads like its actually really bad. Then again it does let me text my friends and family. I give it a two it’s good for texting but I don’t recommend calling. Calling on text now is terrible I just recommend texting.Version: 21.12.1

Fix the group chats!!This is a great app, but I have a few problems with the group chats. First of all, I wish it would show the names of the people who wrote something instead of just the numbers. Also, it’ll just start a new random group chat. For example, I made a group chat and when my mom wrote something it made a new group chat but it just showed up as one on her phone. Can you please fix that? Other than that, it works great and o love the idea Edit: the group chats are starting to stress me out. The names are now there (thank you) but whenever someone sends a text, a new groupchat gets made on my end. I also get a lot of texts later and out of order and it’s starting to get annoying to have to ask for screenshots of the chat. I’ve used this app for over a year because of the free phone number, but please! Updates!.Version: 20.23.1

Malfunctioning appI don’t know why all of a sudden, my messages don’t deliver, I think you should do something about that.Version: 21.14.0

It’s cool it ok for free service/terrible nowSooooo I’ve had textnow for a few years, the more they try to fix bugs the worse it gets! The ads,are messing up the ap,ok its free,but don’t make it mess up the ap! I always missed calls now,never had that before! The fact you can’t send video is a lil wack! But again it’s free! You can’t send more than one picture at a time! But again it’s free lol! Just recently I have noticed when you try to send a picture,it automatically picks the last picture you took! I DO NOT LIKE THAT! Because sometimes I don’t know itnsent someone that picture! It freezes a lot more now thn last year! Also textnow,needs to cut down on people making multiple textnow accounts,just to spam people and harass people ,start getting device info,and ips,and only allow one textnow per email,device,and ip,and make them verify an email! That will help a great deal! So for it being free when you are connected to WiFi is good! Ok it’s now dec29,2018 the app is even more horrible ,it’s blocking numbers I didn’t block ,being very slow! And deleting texts I didn’t delete ,please work on where we can block entire area codes,telemarketing calls are becoming insane! I’ve got 100 numbers blocked from the same company.Version: 9.3.2

Great but can improveAn amazing app that lets me call overseas with no trouble. My issue is when i have a problem like I do now, I would like to ask a human for help. The help articles don't help and the "support bot" just redirects you to the same articles. A help option would be better and it's a reason why I hesitate to pay for a subscription - there's no guarantee I would get assistance if I needed it..Version: 21.14.0

Update crashed appAfter updating app I can no longer open the app it just automatically closes. Lost all my convos.Version: 21.5.0

Glitchy and ads overwhelm the experienceTextNow is a great idea and provides a great service essentially - that you can have a free phone number and call North America from anywhere in the world -however the user experience is pretty bad. The app is slow, extremely glitchy, and the ads are meant to overwhelm your experience. The ad situation has gotten substantially worse in recent months. The standard bad ad experience on the app is that the ads pop up on the home screen constantly and they are hard to close. But recently I had the experience that video ads start playing through my calls and as the call time progresses the interval between the time the video ad plays gets shorter and shorter. So what happens is you're talking to someone and then an extremely loud ad (way above the call audio volume) starts playing over your call. You can shut it down but it will just start back up again a few moments later. Really unbearable. I am keeping the app because it's in its development stages and I'm hoping it will go in a different direction when it receives more funding. As a traveler it's a great tool for me, just wish it wasn't such a harrowing tool to use..Version: 9.1.0

UnreliableUsing text now to contact family and friends while I’m abroad. This app has logged me out twice with no explanation, and can’t get back in. I’m now using TextMe, which has not given me this problem..Version: 9.27.0

ReviewI’ve been using is app since 2018 I’m pretty sure and now it’s not really useful. Cause it used to work just fine everything was good. And now since February if you use your free number for like a verification code thingy they will tell you that you need to up grade your phone number or that you need to copy a link but then it will say that you need to have the app version 2.0 something like that..Version: 21.14.0

TERRIBLE.. SCAM/NO REFUND!!I trusted TextNow for a couple of years until I heard you connect to their wireless data. Yes it works with WiFi but I decided to try the free wireless data and bought it for $10 and the same day I received my activation kit, I decided to cancel it because of some sketchy stuff that was going on with the SIM card not working and my device not connecting to their wireless data it said no refund but on their website before you buy the activation kit they advertise that they will give you a 30 day return refund and you get your money back but that’s a total lie I got no refund as it stated in the email (which had no reply) meaning I can’t reply to whoever sent that email so now I just lost $10... this is a total scam please don’t fall for it you’re just going to lose money do not fall for their free wireless plan or go with any of their plans. It’s all sketchy and just fake advertisements to get your money & improve their app. Something else I also found sketchy about TEXTNOW is that I’ve been looking for a customer service number/email and I couldn’t find anything it just takes me to a site that answers irrelevant questions. SMH BIG FAILURE!!!.Version: 21.13.0

Alright except for people calling me!Many people have had a difficult time calling me. At times, I can't even dial out unless it's from strong wifi. Quite irritating....Version: 9.6.0

Wish Apple at least take control of this and stop allowing this kind of apps hereAll this apps should be controlled or make the price higher for every single number and every time that people change the number or simple not allowed and delete all of them from the App Store and from google play they just bringing problems and making people change the phone number because this is the new game for those that doesn’t have anything to do and start bothering the others and trying to get info to rob you and they never stop playing on and on and on just because is very simple to change the phone number when you block them !!! They just make a new account fake names new emails just to rob people info and bother everybody those apps should be Disappear am sorry for the developers but this is the reality today this just bringing people the opportunity to bother the innocent people that never before think about to do anything similar to it.Version: 20.8

BadAfter 3 attempts of sending messages which all failed; i received a messaged saying my bill of $49 is due and paid via auto cash!!! Would not recommend.Version:

Loading problemsHelpful, but takes a really long time to load and is not helpful with tapping into the adds. Why does it take such a long time to load? I have full bars and it still takes over 2 minutes to load onto the first screen. Then it takes 1-5 minutes to load the messages. Sometimes I just want to delete the app and try a different one for this reason. It does crash A LOT. It switches the keyboard to an add so you can't continue typing. It takes a long time to send messages and if it doesn't sent because of no coverage then when you try to resend it it sends it like 15 times. The calling is really bad. Bad connection. Really glitchy. Crashes mid call. Please update notifications on lock screen when calling. I only get "misses call from _____" after someone calls me. I call them back and then it loads and says " ____ is trying to reach you".Version: 9.15.0

Piece of CRAP app!!!I’d give it negative stars if I could. Even if you’re lucky enough to see your phone actually ring when someone tries to call your text now number, you’ll have to pray and cross your fingers that the app doesn't drop your call, if you can even hear each other during the call. What this app is really good at, is creating the most constant frustrated anxiety within the user. Whilst 10 times a day, while watching your phone for an expected call, you suddenly see the “missed call” or “new voicemail” indicator after your phone never rang once to even give you the chance of speaking to the person you were expecting a call from. And if you’re thinking, “Oh this doesn’t apply to me because I have a strong WiFi connection/the best internet/newest phone/etc” then you’d be sorely mistaken. Because nothing you have or can do will make a difference. This app is a P.O.S. all the way around, despite what you have. It’s “free” for a reason. So expect frustration and anxiety, and good luck..Version: 20.39.0

Doesn’t worth to payIt was good until I paid for the annual fee. It’s basically free for both phone calls and texting, but not for verification codes. That was the reason I paid the fee to be able to receive them but for some reasons I still can’t receive them. Also, it took half a day to send a short message although I had a stable WiFi connection all the time. I’d like to ask for a refund if it’s possible..Version: 21.11.1

Good at firstThe app is well made, then about a week into using it I was flooded with ads and messages that wouldn’t go through. I can’t make calls anymore..Version: 9.7.0

Not Currently WorkingEverytime I try to login a message tell me "Please check your internet connection and try again" I have the SAME results with an iPhone 7, iPhone 8 and iPhone X. Tried pretty much everything. I hope this issue can get worked out soon. I used to love this app..Version: 21.11.1

Not letting me login back at allIt’s not letting me log back in at all and before that it would freeze up when I Was trying to make a call.Version: 21.12.1

5atars but it needs some thingHi and thanks for making that cool app but there is. A only thing that is not great is that if I. Not use the app messaging I can loose my number at anytime so please make a number renewal system for free /yr and this could be magnificent and you are already the best!!! All that was before today , today I have discovered that I can’t receive verefication codes anymore ... some of my accounts which contains fees and real money are now inaccessible... I don’t know what to say it’s more than a crime to ask a user to subscribe to your plans to access his private messages ! I’m leaving text now and I’m not the only ! And btw here is my updated review : still disappointed cause text now is accessing people privacy across it’s servers and lied about the full privacy they give to their user and additionally I have always checked in my number and kept it going and I don’t need that feature to keep it going thank you for respecting my opinion and improving your service to keep it more accessible or else you’ll keep on loosing customers ... just like me !.Version: 21.11.1

GlitchyI have been having issues for months now, it would freeze or crash on my iPad mini 4 with the newest version of iOS and the last couple weeks have been horrible! Not getting important texts, or phone calls. It was like my ringer was off, it wasn’t! Once I opened the app it would say 4 Missed Calls, and it never rang! I tested it with a friends phone and called my apps number, it rang on his end but not on my end. After uninstalling and reinstalling the app, restarting before reinstalling, it has gone from being pretty reliable to wondering if I’ll be getting my phone calls! It went from a 4 star App to a 2 star app, and WoW, did I mention adds? Come on Text Now, Do we need adds flashing and popping up? No wonder the App keeps closing when I go to open it, the app is trying to run adds before loading messages! To much running makes apps crash!, UPDATE MAY 17th 2020, I’m still not getting notifications of incoming calls, my Alert goes off for a second and stops. Then a friend called and said somebody answered but wasn’t me. How’s this possible?? I’m not happy with this. Why is this happening? Who’s answering my calls when I’m not?.Version: 20.17.0

It’s not the best...This app is great. Especially for me because I have an iPad, which means I cannot text phones from Samsung etc. This app is good because I could text my friends with phones from other providers. But, I faced many issues such as sometimes I would click on the app and it would shut me out and I would be back on the home screen after being in the app for about 3 seconds. I do get a lot of spam calls and a lot of people I don’t know txt me. It is really glitchy and sometimes I send messages and the person I am texting did not receive it. Another thing I didn’t like was I didn’t receive notifications most of the time when people texted me. One day I went on the app and all but the contact names went black. It shut me out of the app and I was back at the home screen. I tried many times getting back on the app, but it never worked. Then I got back on about a couple months later and I was logged out of my account! I can’t get back on and I don’t know what to do!! All of my text messages with my friends and family are gone. I would not recommend this app... it has just brought me so much anger and unless they fixed something with a magical update I don’t know if it’s going to be any good because I WAS LOGGED OUT OF MY ACCOUNT AND CAN’T CHECK FOR YOU. Hope this helped..Version: 9.5.0
