    I've double checked my settings and rebooted multiple times, still not working. I have a BLU R1 HD phone, and it's unlocked so it should work.

    I've double checked my settings and rebooted multiple times, still not working. I have a BLU R1 HD phone, but unless I'm connected to Wi-Fi it will not work. I get a network error.

    Hi Donald,

    I have taken a look at your account and it appears that your Motorola Moto G that you had purchased from TextNow is still the active device on your account. In order to get the new device activated for you we will need to make some changes to your account on our end as well!

    Please reach out to one of our chat agents, the chat box can be found in the bottom right corner of this page, so we can assist you in the activation of your BLU R1 HD phone!

    I'm having the same problem these other folks were having. Correct information added and pepper VPN selected. For some reason I keep getting a message saying that it can't connect to the network? I have a LG G3.

    Hi Nate,

    I see that you spoke to Justin on chat about your device and we found that the phone you're trying to activate isn't compatible with this particular SIM card. We can definitely activate your previous TextNow device, but we'll need you to contact us with the original ICCID that came with that phone.

    Our billing is an automated system that simply gives you a month from the date your activate your account, but once we get this sorted with a live-agent and your service is up and running we can adjust the date to get you a full month of use. :)

    Hi John,

    I'm sorry to hear that the service isn't working for you! Please contact a live chat-agent and let us know exactly what is going on so we can troubleshoot the issue. Chat is open during these hours:

    * Monday - Friday 9am-9pm
    * Saturday - Sunday 9am-4pm
