Check For Coverage In My Area

Our TextNow phones are powered by nationwide 3G/4G networks, so you can use your device even off of WiFi.

If you live in an area that does not have data, it is strongly recommended to stick with the free app instead of wireless, as the free app will work over an existing wifi connection.

To check the coverage map in your area, head to our Sim Card page and click on View Coverage Map:

That'll bring you to our coverage maps where you can see your coverage based on the device you have (or are interested in buying):

    I checked the coverage in my area it shows off-network roaming does that mean I won't be able to use this service?

    Hey Michele,

    If the coverage in your area is "Off Network Roaming" then it will likely not work for you. TextNow does not support roaming, so If you are going to be in an area on the map that has that designation, then you likely would not get a signal.

    Hey John, that's a great question!

    I'm afraid that we do not support international roaming at this point in time, so you would only be able to use your TextNow account with a Wi-Fi connection while visiting international countries!

    Hi there,

    Thanks for your interest in TextNow! We are still working on breaking into the Canadian marketplace so our wireless plans aren't currently available right now in Canada. However, if you would like an update once the service becomes available to you, please head over to our store page, once there you will be greeted with a pop up message that will allow you to enter your email address for Canadian service updates :)

    Hey Jon! As long as your device is GSM-unlocked and compatible, you can certainly purchase one of our SIM cards, and the month of service won't start until you complete your activation

    If I bring my own phone can I keep the text now app phone number I have been using?

    Hey there,

    If you activate your own device with a TextNow plan you can definitely keep the number you currently have on your own TextNow account. Just make sure that you are logged into your existing account when you activate your SIM card.
