How to Change Your TextNow Plan

How does upgrading or downgrading work?

On TextNow, you can upgrade or downgrade to another plan anytime you like! For example if you're on our Nationwide Talk and Text plan you can upgrade with a Data Add-On. Or, if you'd like to jump down from our Unlimited Data Add-On to the Nationwide Talk and Text with ads you can do so too - and all in the same place! Simply go to your My Account page is the place and you'll see the option to Mange Your Plan. You can also choose to change your plan or Add-On options during your current plan or set it to change for your next month.

What happens after you upgrade:

If you choose to upgrade during your month, we raise your data cap immediately. Your debit/credit card will immediately be charged the difference between your current monthly plan and the new plan.

If you choose to upgrade for your next month, that will take effect on your next billing cycle. Your debit/credit card will be charged the downgraded plan when your next billing cycle starts.

Downgrading a plan only takes effect on your next month of service. The plan change will take effect the next billing cycle. Your debit/credit card will be charged the downgraded plan when your next billing cycle starts.
