    Sorry for the confusion. I wasn't asking if the system was down. I was working on a problem unique to my phone.

    As for my phone, I bought it on ebay, and it seemed to never have been used. I did a...

    TextNow suddenly stopped working

    I installed TextNow about a month and a half ago on my Motorola Moto e6. Yes, I know common wisdom is that the phone is problematic with Sprint data. But it seemed to be working fine.

    Dingtone

    Does anybody know anything about Dingtone? I can find hardly anything about it.
    It came highly recommended, but it seems like a bit of a scam to me.
