- If you cancel Ad-Free+ (including Data Ons) then your phone number will no longer be able to accept any communications or calls.
YES. You can deactivate your TextNow number at any time from either your computer or mobile device. Just follow the steps below: In order to deactivate your phone number, please go HERE.
To disable text messaging, just open an individual conversation window and click on the “i” icon next to the word TEXT in a blue bubble which will have a red line through it. It is under the first subject field on the top of the screen; this takes you to the TextConversations menu where you can turn off all chat notification (mute) conversations for that selected contact OR tap Never Notify new messages to send no notifications while continuing to receive audio & media files for that contact. This will also allow you to check back into the conversation at any time if you turn them on again, however, remember that the contact will never know they have been muted.
If you would like to stop text chat notifications altogether without muting a specific contact, please go HERE. Note: You cannot mute a single contact as this is done by individual conversations and not the entire application. The only way to completely deactivate your phone number is to delete all information associated with it under Privacy > Settings > Delete Profile Data after logging out of the entire application. However, your account username will still be visible in any saved media files if someone were to access them which could identify you as the original owner of that particular file if it was reported or obtained legally.
You cannot track who owns a TextNow number, as the company does not disclose information about their identity.
It’s easy to terminate TextNow subscription by using the TEXTNOW device removal tool.
TextNow offers the ability to assign ten numbers within a given area code to your account. You can reassign a number through the app every fifteen days.
Click on the Me tab (bottom right corner)
