How Long Is A Free Number Valid For?

I'm looking to use your service to get a US phone number to receive the occassional call or message.

  • I'd like to know how long the number stays active and allocated to my account?
  • What will make a number dormant?
  • I need to know before I send the number to various clients and add it to my stationery!

Hi Alexander,

Numbers on our free accounts will remain on an account as long as the number remains active. I would recommend using the number at least once per day to ensure that it does not expire from your account. As long as the number remains active it will not be reassigned.

Please note however, that using TextNow is not recommended for business purposes and using it for business can result in a violation of our terms of service.

I'm not going to use it once per day.

What's the longest it can go without a message?

There is not one specific amount of time that is guaranteed to allow you to keep the number past a day. Typically if the number is not used for 3 consecutive days or more on a free account the number could expire. But again, I would not recommend using our free app if you're planning to use it for business purposes.
