There are some minor differences when using your iPhone over the TextNow network:
- Calling works as it would normally. Texting works through the TextNow app. If you would like to use iMessage or FaceTime, you can use them via the email associated with your iCloud account on your iPhone.
- Your TextNow phone number won't work if your fellow Apple users try to message you via iMessage or FaceTime. However, they can still contact you via iMessage or FaceTime by using the email associated with your iCloud account on your iPhone.
- Your TextNow number can also be used online at TextNow.com for both calling and texting through your browser! Your messages, call history and voicemails can all be accessed by signing into your account at TextNow.com.
- You can also download the TextNow app onto other devices - Android phones, desktops, tablets, etc. - and use your same login and number to call and text. And just like on the web, your messages, missed call history and voicemails can all be accessed from multiple devices!
