There are lots of websites/apps that are offering free USA phone number, but TextNow is the best at the moment. We sometimes need to register on website which do not allow Nigerians and the only way round it is to get a US number. TextNow is a cross-platform messaging application which offers free U.S phone numbers and allows you to send text messages (real SMS) to any phone number in the United States, Canada, Mexico and 100 countries in the World for FREE.


With TextNow, you can make free calls to US numbers and also receive calls from anywhere in the world for FREE! You can receive calls, make calls, text and receive messages with it.

The downside is that, TextNow is not opened to the general public, it's only meant for those in the U.S, Mexico, and Canada, but there is a workaround to it as Non-U.S resident can also make use of it.

Non-U.S residents can only sign up on TextNow with the help of a VPN (Any VPN with a steady US IP)
