If you're looking to activate an iOS device with your new Activation Kit, here's a handy guide to help you through the process.
1. Make sure the SIM card has been inserted and you have a wifi network active and available to use.
2. Next, open TextNow, log into your account.
3. Open the app menu drawer by clicking the 3 little lines in the top left.
4. Click Free Coverage.
5. If you'd like to find out more about the service click How does it work? If you're all set to activate click Get Started.
6. You'll need your MEID/IMEI and your ICCID in order to check it's compatibility.
7. After you've completed the steps and the device has done a network reset you should be activated.
8. If you decide later that you'd like to remove the ads or add data you can do so by opening the app menu again and pressing Remove Ads or Add Data. In our example we pressed Add Data.
You're all set! Time to start using your TextNow phone!
