Short Code Support on TextNow

Hello could you add short code support for free accounts too. I was using Google SMS Verification based an app till this month however these days Google short code is not arriving into my TextNow inbox.Previous weeks that was working but those short codes not working nowadays :(

You are doing critical strategical mistake by this method. You should support free accounts too; increasing user community will bring you more profit. I strongly advice you to enable short codes for free accounts too as a feedback that situation.

Google's other services mostly works perfect however that sms short code doesn't. If you contact with me I can send you Google's SMS short code is which not working. 

Thanks.

Hi Nicholas! This has been a business decision that was made for several reasons.

One of them is that our free numbers are volatile, meaning that they can be recycled for inactivity (and are recycled daily). If that were to happen, you would essentially lose access to the number, and consequently, access to all other accounts that are tied to that number.

I still can not access my application because of your decision. It has working for months however doesn't work now.

Could you enable for me? I use my phone number nearly 1 year without released it. The result is unfair and I can not access my account on that app :/

In other topics your staffs say that they work for more enabled short codes on TextNow. But you block my application short code. You should change your rule as positively for your users satisfaction. Please report this to your team as feedback. Google's most services work with TextNow but only one is not: that's below

I can share the short code of Google SMS is that:

Can you investigate for this short code? I will be glad for you. PLEASE... :(


Thanks.

I'm afraid that we cannot push that shortcode through, or find it for you.
