Hi, Vance:

Thanks for contacting TextNow Support!

I'm afraid porting is only supported on paid TextNow phone plans; we don't support porting into or out of free TextNow accounts, and as our plans are unavailable in Canada that would cover all of our Canadian users. I apologize for the inconvenience.

Fongo already allows port in the number to their account, I think it would be nice feature if TextNow supports porting.

Hey Prashanthan,

Thanks for reaching out. 

As of right now, we're still only offering porting for our paid subscribers but we're always looking at ways to improve the service! I'll be passing this suggestion on to our developers as this is a great bit of feedback!

Yea, i mean if us canadians want to put our cell # into textnow, or take our textnow # to a cell, it would be great if we could.

 

maybe you could charge a few $'s for it and offer it? since there is no paid subscription feature for us.

Hey, 

Thanks for all the support! We appreciate all the feedback and would love the opportunity to develop the service further in Canada. However, we do not have an ETA for any major changes at this time.

Hi Roger, 

We currently offer our free service in Canada which can be used for calling and texting over Wifi. If you're having trouble with it and would like to provide us with some specifics about the issues you're having, please email us at community@textnow.com, thanks!

Hi guys,

 

Now I'm trying to change to Textnow as my primary phone, but I couldn't find how to port my number in. Maybe it's because I'm in Canada? So any updates on this topic?

 

Thanks.

Hi Shaun,

TextNow's wireless service is not currently available in Canada. We can only port numbers to wireless accounts, so we won't be able to help you port your number to our service at this time.
