Using Your Own Device

If you have a compatible phone we can use with TextNow, you can activate it here with any of our plans! We'll check to make sure your phone is compatible and free for use before we charge you, so if you're unsure if your phone can be used, it's safe to enter your phone's information.

We also have SIM cards you can purchase for your existing CDMA or GSM device. Click Buy Now on this link to find the card that's right for your phone!

Our Plans

All of our plans include:

  • Unlimited texting to the USA & Canada
  • Unlimited calling to the USA & Canada
  • Visual voicemail
  • Call forwarding
  • 3G/4G data (limit varies depending on plan)
  • Unlimited data at 2G speed
  • Ability to use your phone # on any computer & tablet

The only difference between plans is the amount of data available at 3G/4G speed. After the data limit is exceeded for the billing cycle, data access is still available at 2G speed, which is fast enough for apps and services like email and Facebook messaging.

We're also pleased to offer Family Plans! You can add up to ten additional lines, all managed under your account. Find out more here!
