Ratings and Reviews
I love TextNow.com
I have been using TextNow for many years. It is 100% reliable for my needs. I would say it’s a 10 on a scale of 1 to 10.
Stupidest app in the world
I was trying to text all my friends to tell them my TEMPORARY number and it LOCKED ME OUT OF MY ACCOUNT AND NOW ITS PERMANENTLY GONE. Now I have to get ANOTHER app and text EVERYONE AGAIN. And it made me kept doing kaptchas or however they’re spelled to prove I was real and still for some reason thought I was a robot. And then it says I can apparently chat with someone but it’s impossible to figure out and I still haven’t so this app can go to hell. Stupidest design EVER. Common sense when someone needs a temporary number because they’re service is cut they need to LET PEOPLE KNOW THEIR NEW NUMBER. I’m so mad I could smash my phone. I need my phone to WORK for God’s sake and now I’m SCREWED so thanks text now for NOTHing.
Developer Response ,
While this app works well enough if using paid version, there are major flaws. The biggest issue IMO is it is incredibly difficult to reach support, to contact and receive a response from support is to go through the cancel account process. They claim they have live chat, they do not, all you get is the standard blanket look at this article when your question is asked. I’m switching to a service where I can reach a human being easily with a next day email response.
