Not Recommendednothingmissed texts missed calls even with good 3g signal

I have had this service for about a year I have been using it free from the app for several years. I bout a HTC Bolt from textnow and it worked good in the city but it sucks anywhere else. Also the app integration with the cell phone is just clunky and unreliable as a cell phone provider. Very disappointed to be honest and I was going to cancel this month but I missed it and the auto payment went through before I could cancel and with a no refund policy I am stuck for another month missing important calls and messages. Text now has potential but I have seen no progress being made in improving problems, glitches besides giving a reset of your PRL and Profile...It works sometimes but I end up doing it several times a day.

RecommendedAwesome AppNone

Text now is great for wifi tablet using. When I'm away from my phone i can still text using this app. It's funny it doesnt come preinstalled with tablets.

RecommendedThe AppNone

I love this app for being able to send quick texts back and forth between my family. We all have it installed. Wifi is about everywhere in my city so we save alot on data to use this app.
