As an online entrepreneur or webmaster, having a USA number can be extremely useful to your business especially if you are not a resident of the USA.
If you are coming from another part of the world, you may need a USA number to verify some useful services to your business, but only available to those residents in the USA. In such a situation, having a USA number available and handy can save the day.
Some of my readers have been asking me how they can get a USA number for free to help them verify some services.
In this post, I will show you how to get a USA number for free, which you can use for number verifications, texting, and calling also.
There are free and paid services that offer USA real and virtual numbers (VoIP and non-VoIP numbers).
But in order to save cost at the barest minimum, I will take you through the step-by-step method of getting a free USA number.
Take Note: This post is not meant to be used for any illegal purpose, because we do not endorse or encourage any illegal activity. So you use them for only legitimate purposes.
Let’s get started.
The first thing you need to know and understand is that, In other to get a free USA number as a non-US resident, you need to take note of your device IP address.
You can’t be in Germany and expect to use a German IP address to access services meant for USA residents alone.
It won’t work. For it to work, you will need to mask your device IP address to that of the USA in order to be able to access the products and services you need.
And to be able to do this, you will need some IP masking tools like a VPN (Virtual private network) or an RDP ( REMOTE DESKTOP PROTOCOL), highly recommended.
Using an RDP is highly recommended to be able to create an account with a website which I will reveal shortly that gives a free number for calling and texting.
Then after you might have created an account and got a free USA number, then you can use a VPN to download the app and make use of the number on your smartphone device.
I’m sure you already know what an RDP is. If you don’t, I’ll advise you to read this post 👉👉OPEN A CLICKBANK ACCOUNT IN NIGERIA [EVERGREEN UPDATED METHOD].
Now that you know what an RDP is all about, you can get one from a trusted seller or from me. Once you get your RDP and Connect to it, open any browser, I recommend using Google chrome.
Visit www.textnow.com and click on get started now for free to signup for a free account. With the Textnow website, you’ll be able to get a free USA number that you can use to text and make calls.
Once you visit Textnow and click on the “Get Started For free” button, you will be taken to a page where you will see Get a free phone number.
As you can see in the above image, once you are there, click below where you see an arrow pointing and it will take you to another page where you can signup with either your Gmail account, Facebook account, or apple ID if you are making use of an iPhone and have an iCloud. See the image below.
For this method, I will be making use of a Gmail account to signup for Textnow account. And I will recommend you make use of a new Gmail account for this. Click on the continue with Gmail button and another page will come up for you to sign in to your new Gmail account.
So enter your Gmail username or address and input your password, then click on sign in. Immediately you click on the sign-in button, a new page will appear asking you to input an area code. See the image below.
How do you get an area code you may be curious to ask me that right? I’ll tell you because it’s very easy. Remember we are using an Rdp for this (A remote desktop Protocol) which is a remote computer that is somewhere in the united state.
So we are going to be using the area code where our Rdp is located. To get the area code of where our Rdp is located, simply visit a site called whoer.net.
Once you visit whoer.net, scroll down and you will see the Location section. Just check and you will see the zip code right there.
See the image below.
Just use the 3 first digits of the zip code we got from the whoer.net website. But in some cases, it might not work, so what next you will do is google the area code in the state where your Rdp is located. E.g, “Area code in South Carolina”. Copy the area code and input it there.
If the area code you tried still didn’t work, then use the same google search method string with state, and a number will be given to you for absolutely free o use.
There are various apps and websites out there that will also give you free USA numbers to make use of, but Textnow has really proven to work perfectly well.
Additional Apps or services that can give you free USA numbers to use are;
- Google voice: A very good free USA number provided by Google itself. But you know the number is only available to people in the USA to make use of it for calling and texting. Google voice has its own method of creating and an account and getting a free number. In my next post, I will write about the step-by-step process of opening a Google voice account and getting a Free USA number.
- Textplus: Textplus is another great app that will give you a free USA number. Getting a number from Textplus is quite simple and straightforward. Just go to Google Play Store to download Textplus and sign up. Remember you will need a very good VPN to change your device IP to that of the USA.
