Connect Your VPN And Choose USA As Your Location:

The first step you have to connect your VPN. And not just any VPN, this is because some VPN’s are not strong enough to help you open a Textnow website. As a matter of fact, Textnow will not even appear in your search results if your VPN is not strong sometimes.

I Will recommend VPN’s like;

i. Nord VPN

ii. Pure VPN

iii. Windscribe VPN

iv. XVPN

v. Phisphon VPN

They are all VPN that is Freemium, What I mean is they got both a free version and a Paid Version.


Click On Sign up


Type In Your Email Address And Password :

After this wait for your account to be created and you will be logged in automatically by Textnow.


Go back into your Email Inbox To Verify your Email Address:

This is one of the most important methods, Although your account has been created first go back to your inbox to check their verification message sent to your email address and confirm your email. 

This is because if you try getting the phone number first before doing that your account can be deleted and because they have your browser cookie it will be a bit difficult to create a new one with that same device.

Unless your clear your browsing cookie with some software in other to enable you to create another one once again. 

Another problem is sometimes you will not find their verification message in your inbox. If that happens to you do not worry, Check your spam messages maybe Google has marked it as a spam message.


Type in the state you want its phone number in the box provided and wait a bit for text now to get you a free phone number. 

An example is if you want a California phone number are some of the phone codes are 213, 310, 610, 714 or 

if you want a New York Phone number, some of their Phone codes are 718, 212, 917 etc.
