Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to use TextNow a lot in order to participate? 

You do not need to use TextNow on a daily basis in order to participate. At TextNow we understand that people use TextNow for different reasons and we don’t expect everyone on our panel to be considered “heavy users”. In fact the more diverse our user base the better we can be at making TextNow better and catered to our users — whether or not they use it every day. 

Do I have to accept every test invitation? 

No, you do not have to accept every test. We recommend accepting more often than not, since inactive panel members may be removed from TextNow Labs.

I need to change my profile information, where can I do that? 

If you need to update your profile information (ie. You switched from iOS to Android) you can do so by logging into Usertesting.com, click on the My Profile tab, then click Edit Profile.

Do I need to pay for in-app purchases in order to complete a study? 

In very rare instances you may need to make an in app purchase on TextNow, however you will be notified PRIOR to signing up for the test and TextNow will offer compensation of some kind for completing the test.

A test I wanted to do is no longer available, why?

The slots available may have been filled already. The slots are available on a first come first serve basis, and therefore we recommend signing up as soon as possible so you are able to get a spot.
