Saving Money

At TextNow, we’re all about democratizing phone service. We think that communication belongs to everyone, and we’re working hard to break down the barriers to traditional cell phone service. One of those barriers being the rising cost of new smartphones.

That’s why we’re excited to partner with Swappa, who share our commitment to providing access to reliable, affordable communication. With the TextNow page on Swappa, you can find newish devices that are compatible with our free wireless service, at a great price. Pair your new smartphone with a TextNow SIM card, and you’re ready to phone smarter.

What is Swappa?

Swappa is a user-to-user marketplace for gently used technology. It’s the safest used marketplace to buy and sell tech. Swappa was founded in 2010 in Kansas City, MO and has grown to be the marketplace to buy and sell newish tech safely and simply, with over $100M in seller proceeds in 2021.

What devices are available?

Swappa is a user-to-user marketplace, stocked with gently used iOS and Android devices. All of the devices on the TextNow page are unlocked and compatible with TextNow, so there will be no extra hassle trying to activate our free cellular service. To keep the marketplace safe, Swappa doesn’t allow broken items and every item goes through an approval process so you can shop confidently.

Do the devices on Swappa come with TextNow already activated?

No, the devices purchased through Swappa come from other members of the Swappa community. Once you receive your device, you’ll need to download the TextNow app and activate your TextNow SIM card (sold separately).

Can I still buy a device directly from TextNow?

The Swappa marketplace offers a wide assortment of affordable devices, ready to use with your TextNow phone service. We think you’ll love what you find, so we’re no longer selling devices directly through our webstore.

Phone Smarter with TextNow and Swappa

One thing TextNow and Swappa have in common is that we want to keep you connected, for less. We provide you with reliable, affordable wireless service, and Swappa provides great deals on gently used phones, safely.
