Our Editor's Notes on TextNow's Phone-Based Customer Care

TextNow is a free service that provides phone and text service over Wi-Fi. Its target market is people who cannot afford regular phone service but who do own a mobile phone and can connect to Wi-Fi networks. The service now offers low-cost upgrades to the service that include phone and data plans that do not rely on Wi-Fi as well. As ´╗┐one of the oldest services of its type, it isn't surprising that TextNow gets a lot of requests for customer service each and every day.

It should be noted, however, that TextNow does not offer phone-based customer service. Customers are required to visit the help section of the company's website and submit a support request if necessary. It is also possible to connect with customer service via TextNow's social media accounts.

Why Do People Contact TextNow Customer Support?

People contact TextNow for a range of reasons, including:

  • Setting up new service, changing service, canceling service
  • Purchasing phones and upgrades
  • Troubleshooting and technical support
  • Billing inquiries
  • Hacking and identity theft issues
  • Reporting lost or stolen phones

Best Practices for Contacting TextNow Customer Service

Because TextNow is a free/low-cost service, it doesn't offer the same level of comprehensive customer support that full-service phone companies do. It is important to review the company's help section on its website before contacting customer service. In addition, there is an AI bot on the site that can direct you to the information that you need.

If you do need to communicate with a human being, you can submit your request via the website. When you do this, be sure to describe your situation carefully. Clearly state your question or describe your problem and, when you can, attach supporting documentation such as screenshots, order confirmations, shipping confirmations, billing statements or previous correspondence between you and TextNow regarding your issue.

Make note of the time and date when you filed your request. This will help you track the progress of your customer support ticket.

How do Consumers Feel About Contacting TextNow Customer Service?

Many consumers are unhappy about the fact that the company does not offer real-time, phone-based customer service. They would prefer to deal with problems and questions quickly and via a voice conversation with a customer service representative. At the same time, these customers also realize that there are limitations to what a free or ultra-low-cost service can offer.

Users do note that the company offers a robust help page that provides lots of information about common issues and problems. Most complaints about support have to do with getting timely responses to issues, but there doesn't seem to be any overwhelming negativity about the level of customer care offered.

What Kind of Issues can a TextNow Customer Service Representative Resolve?

Customer service representatives can resolve most issues, including providing help with account setup, changes or cancellations, the purchasing of phones, tracking phones that have been shipped, troubleshooting, technical support and billing concerns.

What Can't Be Resolved by Contacting TextNow Customer Service?

If you are having problems with a third-party phone, computer or other device and it appears to be incompatible with your TextNow service, a technical support agent may be able to suggest a workaround but cannot be responsible for the problem. You may have to work with the manufacturer of your device or get a new device altogether.

If you purchased your phone through TextNow and it is malfunctioning, customer service may be able to assist with basic troubleshooting, but you will either have to take advantage of the company's 30-day return policy or have your phone repaired or replaced under its warranty program.

What Should You Do If You Have an Unsuccessful Communication with TextNow?

If you get a response from TextNow customer service and feel as though your questions were not answered or your situation was not resolved, don't give up. You may still have options.

First, review the communication from TextNow, including your initial request. You may be able to identify areas of miscommunication or misunderstanding that caused your support query to go awry.

Next, respond. Explain that you are unsatisfied with the response and describe what you would like to happen. You can also take note of the first communication and explain areas in which you feel that there was a misunderstanding. If necessary, attach additional documentation that supports your case.

If you are unable to resolve your issue with TextNow using its website system, try getting in touch another way. TextNow does have social media profiles and it is possible to reach out over these systems. The specialists who respond to your messages may be in a better position to assist you.
