Main Features and Options

TextNow is essentially an independent calling provider which provides several unique plans. Some start as low as $4.99 per month (or the equivalent currency). International calling rates are likewise quite low. Thus, this package could be a viable alternative to more memory-laden bundles such as Skype. There is a wireless version of TextNow available and this can be downloaded directly onto an existing mobile device. All texts and calls can be accessed across multiple devices; providing a more centralised means to keep track of all communications.

Additional Information and Specifications

One of the benefits associated with wireless access is that users will not be subject to additional mobile charges (such as traditional roaming fees). Low-cost international calls can be made for as low as $0.01 per minute. All phones shipped to the customer come equipped with a 30-day money-back guarantee in the event that they are not completely satisfied.
