Fix this
Angelblinks on 5/21/2018
I updated the app and it's asking me to get a new number which I don’t want
The app is flawed!!!! Do not use !!!!
Parents BeAware. on 5/21/2018
The app is easy to be used by other patrons with just your phone number. The sims they send are from phone company clients who disconnected the phone numbers. It’s and illegally used app.
Update
need a video update on 5/20/2018
Text now needs to upgrade to video call
Random people texting
theswitchinator on 5/20/2018
Random people are texting me that I don’t know. I love that the app is free and that you can call for free but I am leaving text now until they fix this security issue.
Great
Ambreana fachessy on 5/19/2018
This is a great free app when ur phone isnt paid you can still txt and call your friends around wifi
Great app!
lilmant on 5/19/2018
It’s a great app but I wish you could send videos.
Fails to recognize password
Gbo138 on 5/19/2018
Multiple times I reset it fails. It recognizes my user name, sends me a password request email, I reset my password, and then tells me that my password is wrong that I just reset. Worthless app. Worked at first for months, now a total waste.
When you barely use the app
gethdhrrg on 5/18/2018
But they identify you as a high user so you need to register for premium
No phone call capability
nobueno7890 on 5/18/2018
I’ve had this app on my phone for several years and have NEVER been able to successfully use the call feature. I can place the call but the person on the other end cannot hear me and they end up hanging up 😞. I finally just let my number go and will be deleting the app from my phone altogether.
Okay
Lil Will2018 on 5/18/2018
Every time I try to call it’s saying called failed. I can only text. I used to be able to call and text from this app.
Human Customer Support Non Existant
AttiSun on 5/18/2018
No human customer support. I can’t log into my account after successfully resetting the password. For several weeks now, there is no way to resolve this with someone at TextNow / Enflick! How to trust a company with your communication that doesn’t have a channel to resolve an issue if their system fails? Nightmare!
Some changes needed
luieq1 on 5/16/2018
Why not make the app open on the dialpad itself and have all other options on a bottom menu like this if you use this app as a customer or have to call as an emergency you would not have to go clicking like crazy just to get to dialpad itself...
TextNow
SkankHunt614 on 5/16/2018
This app is way better because it’s totally free, keep it up. Hope you guys get more downloads soon
Used to work well
agaifnwgzusjak on 5/15/2018
I used to have this app at the beginning of the year and never had a problem with it but since I redownloaded it a week ago, any call I make no one can understand me it cuts out too badly. Please fix this.
Why I rate this a three
lanboon on 5/15/2018
Is because of a few reasons one is that there is no group chat and if there was this would have been a 5 and two is that most of the calls I take is like 10-20 seconds behind what the other person is talking about.
Spam
Mreeves336 on 5/14/2018
Ever since i got this app I’ve been getting spam calls not only to the app but to my real phone number. I think they sell your information.
Hate this app
bitchfacebrian on 5/13/2018
I want text now off my iPhone how do I do that
Much Better than google voice
Better than google voice on 5/12/2018
This app is so good and like other apps like this you have minutes to talk. But this one is unlimited if and you can call anyone in Canada or USA free if you want a international call you can watch a ad. You need WiFi to use it but you can not with Apple phone.
Read plz
imsharpshooter on 5/12/2018
Hey my phones textnow crashed and i had to delete and reinstall and i want my original number back, in the next update can you add a feature to signing up and logging in people to have a custom number and if that number is being used than they cant have it cause i would really like to have my original number back please.
The worst
broskinan on 5/10/2018
This app is the worst. Not only does it sometimes not receive messages and ruins relationships, sometimes you don’t even get a notification you got a text. Complete nightmare!
Gave me a number
tu6ty on 5/9/2018
Very good
Barely functioning
CEO Nick on 5/9/2018
I’m on an iPhone 6s. I’ve used this app for a while and it always worked well. After the updated where they changed the looks of the “in call” screen, it’s been terrible. Every call I get when I pickup, it works for 5 seconds and then cuts the other person off and then hangs up. It’s very frustrating. I only use for texting now.
Missed calls
Andres1011 on 5/9/2018
Been a Magic Jack user for years. I downloaded this app because I was tried with Magic Jack. And I do like this app but a few issues I have with the app: 1) Get lots of “Missed call” while the device is on and have full internet connection, which makes me have to call that person back. 2) Can’t send or receive videos message. If you get a video message you need to use a browser on your computer to see the video. 3) Doesn’t link to Bluetooth headset when getting a call. 4) Can’t get a Puerto Rico area code. If these issues get resolved it would be a 5 stars app. ***UPDATE*** This app has been deleted from my device!!!
Got an innappropriate text
Smallville30! on 5/8/2018
I thought this app was going to be great and it worked well to replace phone card. I just got a text from i do not know that was extremely innappropriate, and am taking this app off phone because of this. I was about to give this 5 stars then saw this.
I hate this app
sgjitfbjkyfbjophgdsfji on 5/8/2018
It won’t let me log in
Upgraded and charged for premium subscription
cbgonzalez on 5/6/2018
I’ve used this ap for months, switching from free to premium with no problem. I got a new phone, downloaded the ap, and paid for the upgrade. Charge reflected on Apple and shows as a subscription. Ap still does not have my premium services and prompts for upgrade. Customer service never responds.
Bad app
greyeyed1 on 5/6/2018
Texts are somehow “lost”and the app is constantly sticking or freezing. Calls drop a lot as well. Uninstalling 😠
Please fix this app TextNow
childofheavn on 5/6/2018
Cause it keep freezing up on me and shutting down on me on my iPhone 6s so please fix this app TextNow. Cause I like using this free app TextNow phone number to call my friends and family members. So please fix this app and I will give you a five star but now I’m going too give you a one star.
Drop calls
Tinsleygal18 on 5/6/2018
At first the text now was good. Now it drops my calls, and half the time my phone doesn’t ring and I’ve missed several missed calls, important calls. This problem needs to be fixed immediately
Bad

Can’t login or reset password successfully!
jaylin337 on 5/6/2018
I’ve been using TextNow for about a year now, and out of nowhere my number has been reassigned! Really frustrating.
Please fix this!
Salman024 on 5/5/2018
I was trying to call a family member and I accidentally called a wrong number then I could not end the call I tried leaving the app and coming back and then it started screen recording! This really made me scared to be honest... I don't think I will be comfortable with calling anybody else again unless I check that it’s a correct number for at least 15 times.
Awful
zed1214 on 5/5/2018
I created an account but it said there’s no number...and signed out!when i want to log in again,it keeps saying ur password is incorrect(i am sure it’s correct) and i reset password several times by email,but it says same thing...useless app.....👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻
More of a question
owl vison hater on 5/4/2018
Can you face time with this app
Can’t Log in Now
vcama on 5/4/2018
I have been using this app for quite sometime now and it has been very good but now I can’t log in again but am getting notifications. Always says that cannot access the textnow is server.
Change username
Gkilkhgv on 5/4/2018
Please update the app where we can change our username to something we want! I had this app when I was little and still use it but my username is stupid! Fix it please
Deleting this app
English Language Only on 5/4/2018
Today is May 4,2018! I have deleted this app because I am getting a ton of messages from numbers I do not know and have never had any form of contact with. They are all in foreign languages. I do not know the languages and it just looks like scribble to me as I only know how to type and text in English! This has gotten very annoying as it seems to continue everyday! Thought this was a great app until I started receiving all this b.s. Foreign language texts from strangers that I do not have any means of contact or even know when the texts say! Thanks
Bad service
desth40 on 5/3/2018
My messages are not being received n I am not receiving any as well and the point is to be able to revive txts when I am unable to have service but wifi!!!! 😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡
BAD!
TexNowVictim on 5/3/2018
Crashes every time.
Sometimes...
Homemaker101 on 5/3/2018
Sometimes it works amazingly well...but it isn’t reliable. I send it..it isn’t really sent. They are having problems now with Verizon...they say they have a work around. If so, the workaround isn’t working. My hubby has Verizon so at present I’m not too happy. It would be helpful if I knew if my texts were going anywhere!
Fix!
smhfix on 5/3/2018
Why is my text messages being received as an email to Verizon numbers? And why aren’t anyone else getting my messages
Texting not working
Will Run done on 5/3/2018
I use this app for texting but now the other person is not receiving anything that I send them from this app. I can receive their texts and calls. This is very frustrating. Plz fix 😡
Too Many Ads
mariannak on 5/2/2018
This app is really useful and I like except there are too many ads that appear at once and it causes the app to slow down.
The best calling app in the world
welittasfuck on 5/2/2018
U might be wondering why i say this and the reason is because i have personally tried so many apps to call my mom or other family members but they haven’t succeeded like TextNow has done and now thanks to TextNow I can use my number for other apps and best of all I can use it to enter my favorite websites or apps like Wish or Uber eats which is the best thing in the world please get the app if ur like me that can’t call and will love to do it and u want to call without getting minutes paying u will love this app❤️❤️❤️❤️👍🏾👍🏾👍🏾👍🏾👍🏾.
Not a safe app!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Mo So Go on 5/2/2018
I loved this app until I started getting calls, voice mails, and texts from strangers.
Won't work properly
Black Bear38 on 5/2/2018
It says my messages have sent but they're not going through I've tried sending them over and over but nothing has happened please fix this
Use it all the time
anon/anonymous on 5/2/2018
Used to be great, now if you use it a lot it messes up a lot. Use it more often to keep my real number private, however there’s SO MANY glitches to it. Not even the paid version will fix it such as when getting a call and you’re connected to your bluetooth headset it will actually disconnect you from the Bluetooth headset by switching itself to the iPhone headset Then it lags like crazy and 5 seconds or more has passed before it actually loads the real phone in-call page And after pressing the speaker and waiting for it to register your key entry to switch it off back onto the Bluetooth, the person has already either hung up, gotten seriously confused AND THATS JUST ONE OF THE MANY ISSUES.
I don’t get texts anymore
napo000 on 5/2/2018
Most of my contacts calls complaining about me not texting them back but I don’t receive any texts from them so I think you should work on that for me I get texts from my contacts but they don’t get texts from me and I don’t know why I think there might be a glitch or something so please fix that for me
I like u but idk idk
carjs on 5/1/2018
I just updated (Apr29) so hopefully a few bugs have been cleared. EDIT. NO. The problems still persist. I’m on an iPhone SE. 11.3.1. I often have problems with incoming phone calls going straight to missed phone call. (I figured out a possible loophole to get it to alert me by adding the number to my contacts). I have problems with the app getting stuck in landscape mode when I need it to switch to portrait (otherwise I can’t press the numbers during the phone call and I fear touching my home button will cause it to hang up). I have had ads come on during a phone call causing the call to disconnect. This seems to happen when the phone is stuck in landscape mode and open. The landscape glitch causes the phone to stay open. I have been using this app for almost 2 years. These problems have only started to occur for me in the last few months.
Bad
@ShaunaSayomi on 5/1/2018
THEY SOLD MY TEXT NOW NUMBER AND MY REAL PHONE NUMBER TO TELEMARKETERS AND NOW THEY WONT STOP CALLING. FIRST THEY CALL MY TEXT NOW NUMBER THEN 2 SECONDS LATER THEY CALL MY REAL PHONE! THIS IS DRIVING ME NUTS.
