TextNow is an app to create a virtual telephone number to call and send texts from – and completely free of charge. All you have to do is create a user account.
Once you create a user account, TextNow offers a series of phone numbers to choose from. From that moment on, you can use this number to send text messages and make phone calls to other numbers within the Americas.
