There are a few well established companies in the U.S. and Canada that will provide to U.S. and Canadian citizens unlimited free text and calls to any land-line or cell phone number in these two countries using a tablet, cell phone or a computer via internet for free.
That sounds great if you live in one of these two countries mentioned above, but what about those friends and family members living abroad? Are there any alternatives for those living outside of the U.S. and Canada other than to pay for long distance calls and text every time they want to communicate with their friends and family in the U.S. and Canada?
Here we are not talking about your favorite social network (WhatsApp, Facebook, Viber, Skype and so many others) where you have to wait for the other person to login to start a communication, and what if this other person do not have a Facebook, WhatsApp or Skype account? What if you need to contact this person (daughter, brother or friend) in the U.S./Canada right away?
The first thing that comes to mind is to place a regular phone call or text (SMS) message which incurs once again in long distance charges. If you have a service that gives you unlimited free text and calls to any number in the U.S. and Canada you will be in touch with your love ones more often, not only in case of an emergency or for those special occasions but for whatever reason you may have. How this could be possible? I’m about to tell you how…
Please pay attention because what I’m about to reveal will drastically change the way that you communicate with your people in the U.S./Canada and vice versa.

From your computer open your browser and go to www.textnow.com. In the home page click on the button “create account”.
When you create an account with TextNow you will be asked to enter your first name, last name, to create a username, to create a password and to enter a valid email address.
Once you have entered this information, TextNow will ask you to choose an area code to assign you a real U.S./Canada telephone number, then you will need to solve an easy game to prove that you are a real human and not a program, then click on submit.

Creating a TextNow account for people living outside the U.S. and Canada:
If you live outside the U.S. and Canada, ask a family member or friend living in the U.S./Canada to open an account for you. Just send them your personal information: Email address, first name, last name and a username and password of your choice (the username should be one word, any word with no spaces). Popular usernames like juanperez, johnsmith or mariasanchez are already taken so try something more original.
Once your friend in the U.S./Canada has finished creating your TextNow account he/she should send you your username and password so you will be able to login from your computer or any computer with Internet access around the world. You just need to go to the TextNow homepage (www.textnow.com), enter your username and password and click login. Don’t forget to verify your account in the email sent to you by TextNow.
If you live in the U.S. or Canada and you want to call and text for free to a family member or friend abroad, ask for his/her email address and create an account for him/her. Send him/her the username and password. You will also get rid of those long distance charges.
Although TextNow doesn’t provide free outgoing calls it is just easy to send a text message to the person you want to talk to and ask him/her to call your U.S./Canada number since every incoming call is free.
If you are having difficulties to find someone in the U.S. or Canada to create your account, we will be very pleased to create it for you. Just follow this link and your account will be created within 24 hours: CREATE MY ACCOUNT.
