Do you need Internet for TextNow?

Does TextNow only work with WiFi?

While on wifi, you can use data through the wifi connection normally. The TextNow Talk & Text Only Plan works exactly like our regular TextNow plans, with the exception of there being no data access when wifi is not available.

Does TextNow show up on your phone bill?

Do texts or calls show up on my device’s regular phone bill? Absolutely not! TextNow is a VoIP service (voice over IP), and routes the calls through your device’s data connection, not through your existing plan’s cellular connection.
