    Matthew Bates Published date: October 17, 2017

    I've been fighting all day trying to make one phone call. As soon as I hit the call button it hangs up in about a second. I can text but it will not let me call in the state of Texas. I have perfect WiFi, still nothing. I've downloaded Wish and posted on Facebook to get credits and nothing. It's not worth the frustration. I'd rather pay AT&T's high bills for just a piece of mind.

    I would've gave it 5 stars. I used it all summer when I used my phone on wifi. Now that I have service and the same phone, my calling doesn't work. It just shows up as I have a missed call. I've emailed support about this but no response in over a week! Disappointed. Full Review

    Kyle Lowman Published date: October 18, 2017

    Kept trying to use it for a while but with the lack of ability to change numbers even though I've tried tons of times, and the stupid notifications and how much it takes over your phone during a phone call that for whatever reason you cant change in the settings, worthless call quality even with 5ms ping and 50mpbs up and down.... constantly says poor Wi-Fi connect after about the first 5 seconds of literally any call. Lots of grief. There's tons of better apps out there, would avoid this one Full Review

    Published date: October 16, 2017

    It's allowed me to make quick phone calls + texts without using my main number. I can even use some apps. But the voicemail doesn't work. Ringtone crashes the app. Custom greeting records nothing. And voice messages can't be heard. Customer service for the free app is weak. So I'll just stay free and be grateful for what functions.

    This is one of the best apps available as long as you have wifi. I couldn't pay my cell phone bill and this was a awesome alternative. Now I use the txt and call free as a back up plan. I still haven't turned my cell phone on because I have a house phone and wifi everywhere I go and a little flip phone with minutes for emergencies. Lol. Saves me monthly. Thanks TXT NOW Full Review

    I like it. It's been a big help to use when my phone is suspended. Only reason I didn't give it a 5star rating because of the annoying ads. Other than that, it's great Full Review

    Janee Cooper Published date: October 20, 2017

    Very convenient app. My phone is shut off for the time being so i paid the $2.99 monthly charge so i had some sort of communication with my work, family, friends, ect. Only thing that i had problems with is sometimes when I'm receiving a phone call it doesn't even ring it just shows up that i have a missed call. For the most part this app is very nice and convenient to have. Full Review

    Cool Daddy Published date: October 18, 2017

    A good app and the developers are working to correct issues. PLEASE fix the custom ring tone feature! The ONLY way for TextNow to remember a custom ring tone is if you keep a copy of a conversation for EVERY individual contact you have set a ring tone for in the 'Call History'. If you clear all the Call History, then all the ring tones reset back to 'default' and have to be redone over and over again for EVERYONE who had one. Full Review

    Nice app I just wish the group chat worked. You can't create a group and have everyone in one convo, only individual replies. Also if someone else puts you in a group, you can't see everyone in the group you just receive the individual replies. Full Review

  • TextNow - free text + calls
    Dovid Landau Published date: October 18, 2017

    App and features are great. Sometimes you don't receive calls, but you get a text that you had a missed call, which isn't so bad, but has to be improved. It is a bit slow - it's slows down the phone a bit I've noticed. It takes too long to open and can lag when typing. (I'm using a top range phone btw.) Battery consumption and Internet use are also too high. The main problem though is ads. Ads are way way too frequent, pop up way too much and in places which can be pressed by mistake a lot (meaning Chrome opens all the time...). Fix the ads and the slowness and this is a 5 start app in fact, the best on the market! Full Review

    Worked well at first. Now I'm missing important calls and cannot call out. I would like a service that works consistently. I paid for the premium service but not only has it placed my business in jeopardy, I don't feel like I've gotten value for my money. Full Review

    Used to love this app but now it is terrible. There are so many ads it is insane and they completely interfere with the app experience, constantly popping up. The ads also slow down the app so much that it is frustrating to use, ads bog down even just texting. Full Review

    Nicholas Negre Published date: October 18, 2017

    This app has potential to be perfect and earn a 5 star from me, but has some major issues i've ran into. The group chat system is completely broken. When you are added to a group, every messege you receive from the group is individual and when you try to text back it is also sent to the one individual. There is also a problem with messeges not being sent and you not knowing it until way later when you see why the other person hasn't replied. Full Review

    Courtney Westrick Published date: October 20, 2017

    I use this for a business so i do not have to give our personal phone number. I also have another app i use to set up the appt's on same phone sometimes while in a call. Since last update my screen keeps going out while I'm trying to set up the appointments. It even does it now after hanging up with the person and I can't get screen to stop until i shut off phone or go into phone settings to force close it. I can't press button on bottom of that brings up everything open that i use to close out because for some reason it doesn't show up that it is even open. Plus, i keep getting missed calls but doesn't ring, ppl cant always leave voicemails, calls are sometimes static, etc. Text is only thing that seems to work Full Review

    Works awesome calls pics and msg no paying at all I ben using it for years and a half to two years now a problem and if you just use Wifi and then get data service you got to go into your settings and switch data to primary for the calls and then you go into the text app through systems and go disabled delete data and everything and then reinstall then your original service will work and then when you just one use that when you click on that and you'll still receive calls from both with sound Full Review

    I got service through them. Every phone that i had got is messed up when you call them to fix it they act like you're a technician and have you on the phone 4 to the 3 hours and they don't fix the problem and they still tell you that there's nothing wrong with your phone you keep calling for 3 to 4 months and they are finally will send you a new one after you pay three or four months of service and don't get to use it. But after that you get a replacement it works fine for about about 13 two 15 months later then your phone goes Haywire and you have to buy a new one I've been with this phone company for about six years I keep them because their phones are reasonable low costing and I have internet so I can hook the phone to it and it still uses your data but the good thing is you can still make phone calls and never go over your minutes but overall it still is a good phone to have it beats them paying 40 to $70 a month for service on a phone when it works and I get all the Kinks out of the new one. after all it is a good phone when it works. ................ I'm riding back now someone reached out and now everything is good thank you TextNow but y'all should be able to track the people that works for you there's a lot of ignorant people working for you and I'm sorry if I came out wrong with ignorant but that is true hang up on you and if you try to tell them something about your phone that you know and they try to tell you something else and you're telling them no that's not right and you're looking right at it most of the time and they get really smart with you y'all should really listen to the recordings sometime they should be randomly picked from short phone calls two medium phone calls some of the people just don't want to help you at all and I'm them with y'all for a long time I know at least 6 years because I'm had my apartment that long and I know I had you before then and I'm had a lot of people it didn't want to help you at all he would tell you that it doesn't and all along you know it will be taller what to do and they want because they say it won't work but if you call back in the mornings you always usually get someone nice it makes you happy that you actually got on the phone with a mature person people that answers in the evening really doesn't care that's why I don't call in the evenings anymore after a year ago it finally got to my thick skull to not call in the evenings anymore and I can surely tell you it was about my hotspot on my phone twice once whenever I got my new phone and whenever I got it the guys told me that I couldn't use my hotspot and I told him the only thing you had to do is reset it he said he did and it's not going work but I know it will I know what's wrong with my phone before I call always and when I called back the next day the woman did exactly what I said and it worked Full Review
