[iOS] Tap To Call

TextNow is pleased to announce a new feature for iOS users on the Sprint Network: You can now tap on a number on your phone and dial it through TextNow!

The good news is this is a completely free update that doesn't require you to turn on anything on your end. Here's how it works:

On any page on your iOS device - webpage, contact, etc. - simply tap on the phone number you'd like to call, and it will automatically start dialling it through TextNow. (If you're not currently logged into TextNow, it will route through your normal dialer instead.) Much more convenient than having to cut and paste numbers between screens.

    I'm not a Sprint user I'm on Verizon is that why I can't get or make phone calls thru the app anymore. I made 3 or 4 call when I first got this app and now I can't make or receive calls,and the texting features are very lagging!! Is there anything I can do to fix this on the free app I'm using now??

    Hey Joy! Your network shouldn't affect your calling as a free user.

    We'd like to troubleshoot this with you. The first step that I would recommend is to clear the app. If the issues still persist, please head over to our live chat support on textnow.com/wireless between 10am-5:30pm EST for further testing!

    Hey there! Sorry to hear that!

    I'd recommend to try and clear the app by uninstalling it completely and reinstalling anew from the PlayStore/App Store

    Hey there! You should absolutely be able to, as long as you're located in a supported country.
