TextPlus is a free call and text application. But when you’re done calling or texting with it, you might be considering to close your account. In that case: Don’t look further, because I’m about to explain how you can remove it correctly, based on direct instructions from their support team.
I’ll show you below with pictures how I managed to remove my profile using the iPhone app (but steps remain the same for the Android app):
1 Asking the textPlus support team how to delete an account
They were very clear in their answer: “Your account will automatically be deactivated over time per our existing reclaim policies once you log out of the app.(Your phone number will be reclaimed after a few weeks of inactivity.)
Hint from the support: You can accelerate the process by manually deleting your email address or phone number => to do this, go to Menu > My profile > You can change your name, mobile number and email address here.
2 So to start the removal process: open the app, go to the menu page and choose ‘Settings’
3 Scroll down in Settings and choose the option at the bottom: Sign out
4 Confirm that you’re sure => Choose Sign out
if you sign out, you will no longer receive textPlus messages or calls on this device.
Now that you’re signed out, your account will be completely deleted in a few weeks.
Advice: I would like to advise you to remove the app, so that you’re not tempted to log in again. Reason: If you log in again, your account will be re-activated and the whole process starts again.
