Different between textnow sim vs app


I have been using textnow app for several months, since it's a virtual number and textnow is a MVNO, many places do not accept the number for verification purpose, maybe because the number is not from a major carrier.

My question is, will this improve if I use the SIM card from textnow? as far as I know textnow relies on t-mobil or sprint network, but I'm not sure if things changes.

Hi there,

Great question! Unfortunately the status of the number will not change if you upgrade to our paid service with a TextNow SIM card. It is still possible that the number won't be recognized. However, I would encourage you to contact those vendors that don't recognize your TextNow number to let them know that our numbers are valid and you'd like to use it for verification purposes.
