Changing your TextNow number is a relatively simple process that can be accomplished in just a few steps. Before getting started, it is essential to note that once you have changed your number, the original one will no longer work.
How to Change Textnow Number?
To change your TextNow number, follow these steps:
- Open the TextNow app on your device
- Tap on the three horizontal lines in the top left corner to open the menu
- Select “Settings”
- Tap on “Phone Number”
- Select “Change Number”
- Follow the prompts to complete the number change process.
The first step to changing your TextNow number is to log into your account. Once signed in, click on the “settings” tab at the page’s top right. This will bring up a menu where you will find an option for “Change Number” – select this option.
Once there, you will be asked to confirm your identity by entering your email address or phone number associated with the account. After confirming, you will be asked to enter a new phone number you would like to use. TextNow allows users to choose from any available numbers to customize their user experience.
After entering the new number, click “Save,” which will complete changing your TextNow number. It may take up to 24 hours for all changes to take effect and for other users who had previously contacted you via your old number to receive texts from the new one. If you are unsure if people are still using your old TextNow phone number, it is always best practice to inform them about the change so that they don’t miss out on messages sent from the new one!
It’s also important to remember that when you change your TextNow phone number, some of its features may not be available immediately as they are still connected with the previous one. For example, any SMS conversations stored within Textnow and all voicemails received before switching numbers won’t be transferred automatically; instead, they must be manually saved before changing numbers or lost permanently afterward. Additionally, any contacts previously stored with the old account may need to be re-entered into the new account for calls and texts sent from these contacts not to go unanswered or unread by either party involved!
Finally, if a user decides to revert back to their old TextNow phone number at any point in time, follow these exact instructions. Instead of selecting an available new phone number, re-enter their original one into the appropriate field and choose “save” once again!
