Can't Access TextNow - Troubleshooting Instructions

If the site is UP but you cant access the page, try one of the below solutions:

Browser Related Problems

Force a full refresh for the site. This can be achieved by pressing CTRL + F5 keys at the same time on your favourite browser (Firefox, Chrome, Explorer, etc.)

Clear the temporary cache and cookies on your browser to make sure that you have the most recent version of the web page. For instructions choose your browser :

Fix DNS Problems

A Domain Name System (DNS) allows a site IP address (192.168.x.x) to be identified with words (*.com) in order to be remembered more easily, like a phonebook for websites. This service is usually provided by your ISP.

Clear your local DNS cache to make sure that you grab the most recent cache that your ISP has. For Windows - (Start > Command Prompt > type "ipconfig /flushdns" and hit enter). For details choose your operating system :

If you can access a website at office or from a 3G network yet it's not working on your computer, it is a good idea to use an alternative DNS service other than your ISPs. OpenDNS or Google Public DNS are both excellent and free public DNS services.

Check our help page for step-by-step instructions on how to change your DNS.

Everytime I try to make a call using the textnow app, it says that the address is incomplete and will not let me make a phone call. I can't receive them either. I will get a notification that I had a missed call, but my phone never rings or makes any kind of noise. All my contacts are saved with the area code so I am dialing a 10digit phone number each time. Can anyone help me w what could possibly be the problem?

Judging from the comments from earlier issues, it looks like this could take up to three days.

I am able to log in, as well - but like everyone else, I am just stuck on the "loading" portion, where the little blue circle spins endlessly - taunting me, telling me that I'll never get my texts. Mwaha. *cough*

Edit: Here's an update for those of you checking this site - and I don't know if it's the verified source of the problems on YOUR end, but it definitely solved the issue on MY end... the infinite loading issue on TextNow (for those of you that are having this issue) seems to be due to AdBlock. (Again, this is just on my end, but give it a go.) I disabled AdBlock on a hunch, and TextNow loads perfectly. Now, I look into a fix for this - one that involves allowing TextNow to load, but AdBlock to remain on. I'll post an update soon.
