TextNow Reports Customer Growth, Offering Back-to-School Sale on Select Phones

It looks like TextNow's plan changes in June have made things better for the company. Earlier today, the messaging and calling app running on Sprint's network reported positive news for the business.

In its announcement, the company revealed that their iOS and Android app received over 100 million downloads and a revenue growth of 380% in the last five years. Adding to this, the app has managed to grow its monthly active user count to 14 million. Needless to say, the app has become a very profitable business.

Back in June, TextNow unveiled its very first unlimited wireless data plan. The plan, called Unlimited LTE Data, provided unlimited LTE data along with unlimited calls and messaging in the US and Canada, and calling and messaging with your TextNow number via a computer, tablet, or other phone. Even though the plan offers "unlimited" LTE data, this is not really the case. On TextNow's website, there is a disclaimer that users who exceed 23GB/month of data will experience reduced speeds until the next cycle.

Another reason for its success is that TextNow offers app-based services. After downloading the free app, users can get a phone number and make calls or send texts on their device using Wi-Fi connection. There is also no restrictions on where they purchase their smartphone. They can opt to buy a TextNow SIM card and insert it into their unlocked device.

For a limited time period, TextNow also has a promotion where you can save $20 on your new phone purchase. This promotion falls under TextNow's Back-to-School Sale where you can enter the promo code upon checkout. Some of the phones available under this promotion include the following:
