We’re sure you’re all as glad to see the tail end of 2021 as we are. It’s been a year, has it not? The connections we made to others helped keep us all going, regardless of what 2021 threw at us.

Before we make our final toasts and ring in the new year, let’s take a look back at our collective 2021.

This year:

The TextNow community used their voice to make

1.3 billion calls

That's a total of

2.8 billion minutes

You all let your thumbs do the talking, sending

5.8 billion texts

You liked looking at faces when you talked, making

15.2 million video calls

100,000 of you decided you were done with phone bills and switched to our free nationwide talk & text service with a TextNow SIM card.

100,000 people

Staying connected should cost nothing

All that activity for $0

That means you saved around $120 this year. Which means y’all saved about $216 million

Keeping you connected remained our top priority this year. Let’s take a look at our numbers:

Like “twelve” - the number of years TextNow has been around. Turns out people still like not paying for a phone number.

12 years

1/2 -- the amount we cut the price of our SIM cards by to make our free phone service even more accessible. That reminds us of another number - $4.99 - which is how much our SIM cards cost you now.


The number of steps it takes to start a video call with any Canadian or American number, with our first ever device agnostic video calling feature.

2 Steps

Number 1 in speed and quality - that’s where the new network we switched to ranks, making your connections faster and stronger.


Your voice was made to speak freely

Thanks for being the best part of our year! Wishing you a happy and healthy 2022.
