The average U.S. family spends well over $1,500 a year on phone service*, but with the new TextNow Wireless plans, families now have access to premium quality voice, text and data service plans for under $20 per month, per line.

“At TextNow Wireless, our goal has always been to provide the best and most affordable wireless experience for everyone,” said Derek Ting, CEO and co-founder of TextNow Wireless. ” We’re making our new unlimited plans available not only to new customers, but also existing ones as a reflection of our commitment to increase and enhance services, while simultaneously saving money for our customers.”

Offering a supersized suite of features combined with serious savings, TextNow Wireless delivers quality and value in several unique and creative ways. TextNow Wireless piggybacks on Sprint’s network for a wireless connection in the absence of WiFi, so you can use a TextNow-powered phone wherever Sprint has coverage. One standout feature is its ability to seamlessly switch between WiFi and the traditional carrier network, maximizing savings while ensuring quality coverage.

The cloud based phone service also empowers users to take their numbers from their phones, to their computers, to their tablets through its app. One number can be used across all platforms, while still maintaining crystal clear quality. Additionally, TextNow Wireless offers unprecedented value with a no-contract commitment and delivers visual voicemail, picture messages, web calling, and unlimited calls for no extra cost.

Staying true to its reputation of providing top quality service without the cost or restrictions associated with overpriced wireless contracts, TextNow will be grandfathering in all current customers so they will automatically gain access to these new unlimited plans: no changes or updates necessary.
