[iOS] Do Not Disturb Settings

For iOS users, we've discovered that if you have your Do Not Disturb setting turned on, it will block notifications from coming in to any other iPhone you are logged into TextNow on.

If you're on an iPhone and you're having trouble receiving notifications from TextNow, check to make sure your Do Not Disturb setting is off. You can find it in your main Settings menu on your iPhone - tap on Do Not Disturb in the settings, and make sure the green switch is set to off. 

If you've logged into TextNow on more than one iOS device, make sure all of them have Do Not Disturb set to off.

    Hi Carla, looks like your outgoing calls have been restricted due to high volume usage. Your incoming calls and texting would still be available. This should be lifted in a few days.

    The sound is gone for texts or calls. This is useless if I can't hear the phone

    Hey Heather! Can you please make sure that your notification settings are enabled within the TextNow app settings as well as within your phone's native settings app?

    Hey there! If all your notifications settings are enabled in both your iPhone settings, and inside your TextNow app's menu, please head over to our live chat support between 10am-5:30pm EST so we can assist you further.

    If I delete the account or canceled services will I still be able to receive email messages from anybody?

    Hey Gordya! If you no longer use your account, your number will run the risk of being revoked within a few days, so you would not be receiving any notifications.

    Almost 2 months ago I purchased a refurbished 16 GB iPhone from TextNow along with my first months phone bill now I’m onto my second month with billing for the third coming up and my phone has not rang When it was supposed to in over a week. It does however give me a notification after-the-fact which is great Because it shows me that my speakers work. Troubleshot every possible issue that it could be on the device itself in the settings and such couldn’t possibly be And issue on your end please get back to me a soon as possible I would hate to pay for a third month billing for a phone that won’t ring on time thank you for your
