    When I use your phone service and am on using the key pad. , I attempt to call on the balance of my debit card. Some of my debit cards have a zero ..however on the keypad the red phone app/symbol covers the zero and when I press it the phone call gets hung up on .
    How can this matter be corrected ?

    Also , when i get enough money saved up in my account can I purchase any items that's offered for sale to me ?
    Also ,if i purchase your unlimited talk and text plan , must I always be in a wi-fi area to use your phone service. ?

    Kent Anthony... I'm not sure about your phone dial pad problems, maybe see if you can turn your phone sideways to see if the 0 key is able to be used when the dial pad is readjusted, or try using a different keypad somehow in the settings (I don't work for the company or know your phone, so I wouldn't be able to help you out on that one)... Yes once you have saved up your money for whichever products that you want that are being offered to you, you're able to purchase them. That's why you're being offered and showed them.... If you have a plan with TextNow, then no you don't always have to be on wifi to be able to use the phone. It's stated that when not on wifi, the phone uses Sprint 3G&4G. Unless you're about to go over your minutes/data plan that you've purchased. When you're about to run out of minutes/data you'll be asked to upgrade to next plan. But if you decline to upgrade your plan you'll only be on 2G service speed which is really slow....
    Well I hope that I've been able to help you out and explained everything so you're able to understand what I said 👍🏼

    Hey Kent,

    Justin here graciously covered everything for me, so I don't have much to add!

    With regards to your dial pad issue, I can see that you are using a Samsung Core Prime. I tested it out here, and could not replicate it, so I would suggest to try these troubleshooting steps.

    Let us know if you come across any more issues :)

    Hi Timothy,

    We will need the IMEI number of that device to check its compatibility for you. Can you please reach out to our live chat support so we can get that info from you and let you know if it will work? Thanks!
