911 / Emergency Calls & Texts

Hi TextNow,

I know you cannot call or text 911 or emergency services through the free voip phone service, but am I able to call or text them if I upgrade to one of your wireless subscription plans?

Thanks

Hey Miebi, Through research I found out that it is US law actually that your cell phone be able to call 911 unless you are in the middle of nowhere and there is no service/connection. So if you need to call 911 you just use your regular phone dialer (not TextNow) and it should connect you to your local emergency services even if you do not have a cell phone plan.
