I believe TextNow's usage requirement is at least one outgoing text every 30 days.

ETA - that's what it used to be, before their new free cellular plan. Not sure what it is now.

According to this page, supportfree.textnow.com/hc/en-us/articles/204253309-Help-My-Phone-Number-was-recycled-how-can-I-get-it-back- , you can text or call to prevent expiration. So the plain language means that receiving only frequent texts from Subway may still lead to expiration.

The inactive period for expiration is variable - according to that page:

There's no hard-and-fast rule as to how long a number can stay inactive before it's revoked. There are a number of factors that go into it, and each customer is weighted differently based on usage patterns. We send you a warning message before the number is revoked to give you a chance to keep it active.

I recieved an email about 10 days after activation saying my number was going to expire shortly. Received a second warning today a couple of days later. I haven't been using since I tried it out on day 1. So definitely not 30 days.

If your number expires and you want to reactivate your account with a new number, will you be required to pay that $9.99?
