Note:

  • These settings are case sensitive. Make sure that you are using them in the right case as I have mentioned here. If it is “TextNow” for APN Name, you cannot write it as “textnow” or “Textnow.” Write the values as they are.
  • Be careful while putting “comma, dash or dot” in the values. Don’t miss any punctuation sign.
  • You need to give accurate spaces. If it is “Textnow 2” in any category, you cannot write it as “Textnow2.”
  • Once you have added the settings, you need to reboot your phone to apply the changes.
