Stay Connected Via Free Mobile Services

Posted

(NAPSI)—If you’re like most people, you’re probably overpaying for a data plan you don’t even need. In fact, studies suggest 75% of Americans use Wi-Fi for half their data usage.

 

 

What’s more, the average American spends close to $2,000 a year on their cell phone bill but doesn’t have enough savings to cover a $1,000 emergency expense. Many of the big wireless carriers hike prices again and again while customers fall further and further behind on their bills. 

 

 

At the same time, the Affordable Connectivity Program, a government initiative that subsidizes Internet services for eligible households, is running out of funding and winding down. Whether you’re looking for simple, affordable broadband, cellular plans, or both, the choices are limited and complicated. 

 

 

A Simple Solution

 

 

Fortunately, TextNow is shaking things up as the first and only mobile provider to offer truly free phone service. Now with the first-of-its-kind Free Essential Data, customers have free and flexible wireless service on the nation’s largest 5G network and free access to data for essential apps including email, maps and rideshare. All this without ever having to pay for a data plan. 

 

 

How it Works

 

 

Getting started is easy and there’s no need to go to a store or wait in line. Customers simply download TextNow from the Play Store or App Store, sign up for an account, and order a SIM card right from the app. Once the SIM card is activated, customers are automatically added to TextNow’s Free Essential Data plan which provides their unlocked Android or iPhone free data for access to the essential apps, along with unlimited talk and text nationwide. They never have to worry about losing connectivity because of an unpaid phone bill. While this may sound too good to be true, the reality is in-app ads keep the service free so you can get rid of your bill and keep more of your money for the things that matter to you.

 

 

“At TextNow, we’re obsessed with charging people less, while giving them more and changing what consumers expect from their mobile service providers,” explained Derek Ting, CEO and co-founder of TextNow. “With this game changing launch of Free Essential Data, we’re proving that phone service can be affordable and offer more choice and control to the consumer.

 

 

“Wi-Fi is everywhere you go these days, so there’s no need for families to pay hundreds of dollars a month for data plans they ultimately don’t need,” continued Ting. “With our free service and low-cost, flexible data passes, we’re helping people stay connected while only paying for what they need.”

 

 

Customers who want additional data to browse and stream on the go can also choose from the most flexible data options on the market with TextNow’s Data Passes. These include hourly ($0.99), daily ($4.99), or monthly ($39.99) options that can be purchased, changed, or canceled any time from the app with no lock-in contracts. Data options are more tailored to a lifestyle that may need heavy amounts of data one day but can rely on Wi-Fi for most of the rest of the month. 

 

 

What You Get

 

 

Available apps include: AOL, Apple Maps, Google Maps, Waze, Uber, Lyft, Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft Outlook 365, FastMail, Gmail, GMX Mail, Hotmail, Hushmail, Inbox.com, Lockbin, Lotus Notes, Lycos Mail, Mailstrom, My Way Email, Proton Mail, Sunrise Calendar, Yaanimail, Yahoo Mail, Yandex Mail, and ZimbraZoho Mail.

To get started with TextNow’s free and flexible phone service, customers can download TextNow from the Play Store or App Store, sign up for an account, and order a SIM card right from the app. Once the SIM card is activated, customers are automatically added to the Free Essential Data plan.
