Hey Cece,

Thanks for the question.

You'll just need to head over to https://www.textnow.com/account and select "Messaging and Calling" followed by "Calling Settings". This will give you access to configure our web browser for making calls. 

I hope this helps!

Hi Lorraine, 

Thanks for reaching out! I'm afraid that we do not have a retrieval option for deleted messages, and as such, you would not be able to access them. 

Our apologies for the inconvenience, and please let us know if you have any further questions, and/or concerns!

Hi Bella! Unfortunately, the messaging function is not available on mobile browsers. So you'd have to sign into your account on a desktop to view your messages.

Hey there! Our app is free to use over Wi-Fi, and here is a tutorial on how you can make a call.

So, here's the really frustrating thing about this. About a month ago, I started getting absolutely inundated with calls from telemarketing firms. Like two dozen calls or more a day. Several of my friends on different carriers have also started experiencing this. The TextNow mobile app's blocking isn't working on my phone to stop these calls from coming through. It's also really basic, only allowing you to block exact numbers, not filter against patterns. Most of these telemarketing companies are varying their numbers by a few digits every time they call. Y'all need a better blocking feature that actually works. But you don't have it, so I tried to put a better blocking app, called "Call Blocker", on my phone. It works MUCH better than the TextNow app at blocking unwanted calls, but it has to be the default phone app on the phone to work. If I do that, the TextNow app starts complaining every single time I open it to look at messages. It's a terrible user experience, so I uninstalled the TextNow app and tried to just view my messages in my mobile browser. Except TextNow won't support viewing messages in mobile browsers. So, I'm out of ideas. And very, very frustrated. Is there any solution that works from TextNow for this problem?

Hey Marvin! I have a feeling that these calls are not coming in to your TextNow number, but to your TextNow phone's native number that is found in the settings (which is only used by us for technical reasons to route your calls over the network) 

So what we can do is actually change this number (which won't make any changes to your regular communication), to stop the calls. Please contact us at community@textnow.com, so we can get this sorted for you!
