    I'm using the free TextNow service on my Motorola (Sprint) phone. I haven't been able to make a call using data for a few weeks now. Would this new SIM card solve that problem? I haven't received...

    This is in a suburban area, so I doubt that the tower would be overloaded, and I would think there is a very small chance that there is even one other TextNow user. The ringbacks occur when using...
