Enable/Disable Call Forwarding

TextNow Free users on both iOS and Android can use Call Forwarding as part of their Premium subscriptions. (For TextNow plan users, call forwarding and all other Premium features are included as part of your plan.)

You can purchase Premium by opening your TextNow main menu and tapping on Get Premium.

Here's how to enable and disable Call Forwarding on your TextNow app:

  3. Tap on Call Forwarding 
  4. Slide the switch to ON
  5. Enter the phone number you'd like the calls forwarded to.
  6. Tap the Back button

Note for iOS users: if you're not a Premium or TextNow phone plan subscriber, turning on Call Forwarding will prompt you to purchase Premium.
