    My daughter lost her phone and I just ordered a new phone. Anything else?

    Hi Sienna,

    If you ordered the new phone on the same account as the lost phone, the new phone will become the main device on file after the on screen activation. Additionally it will sync to your daughters TextNow Wireless account and use the same number. If you ordered the device on another account please send us an email at orders@textnow.com and we will take a look and get it sorted out for you.

    Hi, Joshua:

    Thanks for contacting TextNow Support!

    Our online system only allows you to purchase a replacement device after you've had your current one for four months of service. If you're under that four months, give us a call at the number you see below and we can go over your replacement options!

    I haven't downloaded any apps and the ones pre installed have used all my phone's memory in less than one month. I need a new phone again?! Not to happy right now.

    Hey Matthew,

    Thanks for contacting TextNow. I'd advise clearing out any media (pictures, music, etc.) that you may have on the device as this will elevate some of the strain on your storage. If you find you're still experiencing issues you can disable some of the built-in Google applications you are not using. This includes applications such as Google Play Movies, Music, News stand, etc.

    You can do this by heading into Settings > Apps > All (Swipe from right to left until you access the "all" application list.)
    - Example: Once in the list of all applications locate Google Newstand and select it
    - Select Clear Data
    - Select Force Stop
    - Uninstall Updates
    - Disable

    This minimizes the amount of space taken up by the application and can be repeated with many of Google's built-in apps.

    Hi. I wouls like to know if I could purchase more data without changing my plan. Perhaps purchase additional data at a store? I really didnt want to upgrade because my plan renews in 6 days.

    Hey Tamiko,

    Currently the only way to get more data would be to increase/upgrade your plan. I've passed this feedback along though as we are always exploring other options to provide things like this to our user base!

    I really wish you would add more customization options like go sms, I really hate how plain the app is. I get some people like it simple but I know other people like me who love to customize everything on my phone. Please update the apps style it's outdated.

    Hey Angie! This is pretty easy to follow:

    1. Open up the TextNow app- tap on the top left parallel bars to open up the menu
    2. Find the gear icon on the top right corner- tap on it to select your settings
    3. Tap on Display- Wallpaper.

    From there, all you have to do is tap on "remove wallpaper" and it will reset it back to default!
