Welcome to TextNow!

Thank you for signing up for TextNow.cloud to provide you with business-class texting. In the next few days, one of our representatives will reach out to you for additional information to set up your account. Please take a moment to read over the required information we need to finalize your account.

We are an authorized agent CSP (Campaign Service Provider) for the Campaign Registry and all Text Messaging, no matter how small or large MUST be approved and vetted by the Campaign Registry. 

Effective June 1, 2023: All Text Messaging must be approved by the Campaign Registry.

Due to delays in processing new customers by the Campaign Registry, you may not be able to send text messages immediately. All users must be U.S. based and sending SMS and MMS messaging must be in compliance with all the rules of the Campaign Registry. We will help you with this registration process and there is no cost for low-volume text messaging applications. Depending on your use it might take as long as three weeks to get your telephone number approved by the Campaign Registry. We are an authorized CSP (Campaign Service Provider) for the Campaign Registry and will expedite the processing of your application to send 10DLC (also known as A2P messaging) business text messages.
