Upgrading To TextNow Premium

What is TextNow Premium?

TextNow Premium bundles together our most popular premium features, now available at one low price!

Here's what you get with TextNow Premium:

  • Ad Removal: Removes the ad banners from the TextNow app.
  • Call Forwarding: Forward the calls to your TextNow phone number to any other phone number in the US or Canada.
  • Phone Number Locking: Locks your TextNow phone number to your account for as long as you have Premium, and your number won't be recycled for inactivity. 

Premium features are offered at monthly and yearly rates, and will auto-renew every month or year, respectively. Here's how you can turn on Premium

Tap your TextNow main menu to see the button to Get Premium:

From here, you can choose to have your Premium feature auto-renew monthly or yearly.

Help! I signed up for Premium but I'm still seeing ads!

If you're signed into Premium but you're still seeing ads, log out of your TextNow app (under the TextNow Settings menu > Log Out) and log back in.

    Hey @John- I believe you may have received further assistance from us elsewhere?

    @Tema- unfortunately, we can only port in numbers from other carriers to our wireless accounts, not free nor premium

    My phone was purchased on black Friday and it is a LG rebel 4 and I have not activated in straight talk or any other services. Because I would like to use the text now app.

    I have done all the suggested above and it tells me cannot connect with iTunes Store? How do I fix this?

    Hey @Shana- If you'd like to use it on our wireless service, we would need to check its compatibility with us before sending you a SIM card! You can head over to our live chat support between 10am-5:30pm EST (bottom right-hand side of this page) with that phone's IMEI number for further assistance.

    @Hey Brittney- that sounds like a potential issue with your iTunes account on your phone. I'd recommend to reach out to Apple Support for further assistance.

    Can I have coupon applied after the time of purchase please? Like a meathead I bought a second phone and plan from TextNow and didn't realize I had a referral code for either $20 off the purchase or $50 added to my account.

    @Rebecca- Our service does require some sort of internet connection, so if you do not have a data plan with another carrier, the only other way you could use it off of Wi-Fi is by signing up for our wireless service! Our plans start at $9.99, and you can either activate your own compatible phone or purchase one of ours. Check it out here.

    Hey @RJ- I can see that you received assistance from our live chat support :)

    @Jaydn- I'm afraid that our premium subscription does not provide you with data service to be able to use our app away from Wi-Fi

    Hey @Ferdmaca- I'm afraid that we can only port in numbers to our wireless service

    @Jessica- The only plans that we offer that will provide you with data to use away from Wi-Fi are our wireless plans, starting at $9.99/month!

    My account has auto-subscription through Google Play. The renewal amount got deducted 3 days ago, however, my subscription appears as expired in the app.

    Hey Radhika! On my end, it is showing that you have a Premium subscription. Can you please send us screenshots of what you're seeing on your app to community@textnow.com ?

    Hey Ali! I can't see anything on my end that is blocking your calls, so I'd please ask that you head over to our live chat support, so we can test this out and possibly escalate for further troubleshooting.
