Elastic Calling


Elastic Calling is TextNow’s unique ability to have our calls choose the best route for your call to improve quality. TextNow tests the quality between wifi, 3G/4G and voice, and switches on-the-fly to the path that gives you the best calling experience.

You can find those settings in your TextNow Settings menu, under Calling > Elastic Calling:

Data Fallback: Allows TextNow to send and receive calls through your carrier's 3G/4G network, without Wi-Fi

Voice Fallback: Allows TextNow to send and receive calls through your carrier's voice network.

    Hey @Robert- We don't allow for our calls to be recorded.

    @Ramkumarjha- Are you connected to either Wi-Fi or data during this time? Can you try to clear your app by uninstalling it and reinstalling?

    Hey @Ariel- You can certainly disable these settings- just open up your TextNow app- tap on the top left parallel bars to open up the menu- tap on the top right gear icon to open up your settings. From there, tap on "Calling"- Elastic calling- disable any features you don't wish to be on.

    @Tracy- My apologies for the inconvenience, as it looks like your calls are being temporarily restricted due to high volume usage.

    My phone only rings twice then goes to Voicemail. It's not my phone's setting because when I use Facebook Messenger's call feature it rings many times b4 going to Voicemail.
