TextNow Changes Plan Pricing

TextNow, a Wifi/cellular network MVNO hybrid, has changed around all of its plans this week. Effective immediately, all four plans now include unlimited talk, text and low speed data plus a limited amount of high speed data. Formerly, these plans only included limited high speed data and limited minutes. This change makes TextNow a far better value than some competitors, but I’ll let you take a peek at the plans and decide for yourself. Here’s what the plans look like right now:
  • Tall – ($18.99) 500 MB
  • Grange – ($26.99) 1 GB
  • Venti – ($39.99) 2 GB
  • Trenta – ($59.99) 4 GB
Much like Republic Wireless and Google’s Project Fi, TextNow uses a combination of Wifi networks and Sprint’s CDMA network in order to place and receive calls and texts. The service prioritizes Wifi networks over CDMA, but unlike Project Fi I do not believe it can switch mid-call. TextNow offers several TextNow phones and unlike Republic Wireless the service is also available for customers who wish to activate their own Sprint device. Customers who activate their own device might not be able to switch back and forth between CDMA and Wifi, however, so coverage will be limited to Wifi locations only.
