Does texting from the TextNow app require internet connection?

Every time I try to send a text message it says that there is a Network Error and to check my internet connection. But from what I understand is that I don't need wifi to talk or text so why is it that I need to have internet connection?

Hi Albertina,

Thanks for contacting TextNow Support!

TextNow is a VoIP based application, which means it uses an internet connection to talk and text.

If you have access to Wi-Fi, the application will use the Wi-Fi connection available. If there is no Wi-Fi available, you will need to connect your device to a mobile data network in order to continue using the application.

Please let me know if you have any further questions or concerns!

Hey Molly! It seems like we may have detected some incompatibility issues with your phone when you last spoke with us. We would need to investigate this further with some testing, so I would please ask that you contact us again through our live chat support (can be found on the bottom right-hand side of this page) for prompt assistance :)
