Verification With TextNow

TextNow accepts verification messages via short code from third-party apps and services.

Some apps and services can be selective with the wireless numbers they accept. If you're having trouble receiving verification from any app or service, contact their customer support to request your TextNow number be added manually to your account with them.

    Hi Yuderki,

    If you need an 814 area code, you can request that when you create your account. Or if you already have a number, you can request a new number. If you're not able to get an 814 area code that would mean we don't have any of those numbers available at this time so you will need to request a different number.

    Hola, parece que solo tienes créditos de llamadas internacionales de $ 0.14 en tu cuenta. Cualquier otro crédito que haya comprado ya ha sido utilizado. Si necesita más ayuda con sus llamadas internacionales, comuníquese con nuestro equipo de soporte de chat.

    Hi there! It seems as though you were able to speak with a live representative to switch your phone numbers.

    If you are actually looking to switch phones altogether, and are referring to the MEID/IMEI number, you can find it through your settings:

    1. Open up your phone's settings
    2. Tap on "About/About Phone"
    3. Tap on "Status"

    Hi Alle! We can't guarantee that any verification codes would be available with your TextNow number at this point in time.
