TextNow is the first company in the world that is a cloud-based phone carrier. Millions of users in different US regions are using the calling, text, internet, and MMS services by TextNow. The company is immensely popular because it offers affordable wireless call, text, and network services to the people. TextNow offers a wide range of acceptable and affordable data plans to its users. The most popular data plan brings 5GB 4G LTE services for the users per month. The average bill for a TextNow Wireless phone is $19/month. People use the services of TextNow because it brings a 30-day money-back guarantee for your money. If you are not satisfied with its services, you will get your money back in 30 days. There are no contract basis services.
To use TextNow services, you need to use relevant APN settings. Here, I am going to describe TextNow APN settings for Android and other devices. You need to insert a few particular strings to access the internet and MMS services of TextNow.

The general APN settings for the Internet & MMS are for all devices whether Android, Windows, or iOS devices. You can use these settings for any handset.

TextNow APN Settings for Internet & MMS [Android]
If you are using an Android phone, you need to follow a bit different APN settings to create new Access Point Names. Follow the steps below to create a new APN.
Go to the “Settings” in your Android handset.
Select the “Network & Internet” category from here.
Now tap the option “Mobile Network” here.
Here, you need to select the SIM you are using and tap the category “Access Point Names” option.
Select the “+” sign or “Add” to create a new APN from this category and add the following values in the given fields.
|APN Name||TelCel America|
|APN roaming protocol||None|
- 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 signs.
- 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.
