Ok so I made 400 credits I'n an hour using this method and I got free calls for a year no ads and all the ringtones. here's how you get the credits so you can call your friends.

Quote

Textnow is a great app that allows you to text and make/receive calls on your iPhone or iPod Touch!! To use the Calling Feature, you must accumulate 300 credits. You gain credits by either buying them or by purchasing various apps that Textnow sponsors and opening them. Both of these cost money and that's not cool . Assuming you follow this tutorial correctly, you will be able to gain as much credits as you heart desires

Some of you have seen my previous post (link here). It was a pretty lengthy process and quite difficult for some. Thanks to Shadow Wizard's post (link here), I have found a much easier way to get even more credits on Textnow that doesn't require Installous .

AND YES THIS WORKS OVER 3G/EDGE

Requirements:
- Textnow 4.3.4
- Apple's Multitasking or Backgrounder


Step 1: Download Textnow if you have not already. Get the latest one from the App store; it should be free.

Step 2: Open Textnow and click on the Shopping Cart icon.





Step 3: Click on "Earn More Credits".





Step 4: Enable Backgrounder if you have it.


Step 5: Click on one of the Apps the appear on this screen. It should open up the App store. Go ahead and install.





Step 6: After the app has finished installing, open it. Within a minute, you should get a notification that you have been awarded 3 credits in Textnow.





Step 7: Here comes the important part, go home to your springboard. Double click on the home button. This should bring up all the apps that are running. Press and hold on one of the apps until they start to wiggle. Then close the app you were in when you got the 3 credits by pressing the red button on the top left of the app icon. If you have SBsettings, go to "Processes" and make sure the app is not running. The point of this step is to make sure that the app you downloaded is no longer running. Do not close the Textnow app though. We need that running.

Step 8: Open up Textnow and it should open up at the "Earn More" page where you left it. Well what do you know, that app you selected before is still there, select it.






Step 9: This should open up the App Store with the app you chose. It should say "Installed". Click home to go to your springboard. Open up the app again. You should be awarded 3 credits again.






Step 10: Repeat step 7.

Step 11: Open up Textnow and it should open at the "Earn Credits" page, the app is still there, select it....

Step 12: Congratulations, if you have an iPod touch, you now have an iPhone. If you have an iPhone, you can cancel the SMS feature from AT&T and set your minutes the the lowest amount AT&T allows. You could save around $30 on you iPhone bill and still have the same features! Enjoy




You can do this process over and over as long as you want. If you are really hard-core it is possible to get 500 credits in one day. That''s 1 year of Voice, 1 year of no ads, 25 ringtone pack... all in one day... FREE!!


Post any questions/comments you may have.



If you thanked me, please thank Shadow Wizard too because he came up with this, I am just giving the tutorial. His post here.

It would be so much easier to explain if there was a proper iPhone screen capture app that u don't have to buy.

Cool I finally got it !!! It is very time consuming though , it took me a hour and a half to get 52 credits . Tip to you all : change the app you download each time . When u choose same one over and over it seems to cause a error by 3rd download unLess u change it up O.
