with a lot of test, I found the miss message problem. 

when I send this message, none number can received. very strange. 

Your're a great passenger. I’ve rated you 5 stars, I hope I’ve earned the same. For the icy cold snowy winter, Tips/Free Rides/RSVP: https://tftr.ca/xiao

 

if I remove the "https://tftr.ca/xiao" part, the message can be received. why?

Hi Xiao,

Thanks for following up with more information for us!

When you create a new account or change your number, there’s a period where our servers validate your account to prevent the use of TextNow for spamming. After the validation period, you should be able to send that link normally. We apologize for the inconvenience.

I understand Xiao, however, the system might still flag that as business use. 

For your particular Uber purposes, I would recommend to use your regular carrier number, in order to avoid running into any further issues.

I assure you that it is not a bug, and simply the way our service is set up to ensure that our Terms of Use are being adhered to. 

You may try to send the link out once more next week, however, we cannot guarantee its success.
