Will do. You will need to pay for data to use waze … you should just sign up for visible phone service $25/month unlimited talk/text/data(5g). DM me if you want my referral info or if you have questions…
You can do much better with tello.com 
5GB with them is $16, 2GB/ $11, 1GB/$7  all these are plus a couple of bucks tax.


How much data does Waze use?
Also interested to know how much data does WhatsApp use?

My favorite cause: cssy.org

Just read that you must make an outgoing call or text every two days or your number may get “recycled” and assigned to another person…unless you pay a monthly fee…
Incoming not good enough?


Just sign up for the DDMS groupme alerts
  Would have been a great idea!

Textnow is fine.  It's not 2-3 days for calls, but more like 30 days, to keep your same number and keep it active.  You can actually "subscribe" for $5 a YEAR to keep number active without calls.
TextNow uses only their app to do texting or calling, which seems indeed to be "unlimited."  With their SIM in a smart phone, you can use their app (and their app only) on the TMobile network and it works for SMS, phone calls, etc.  On Android, you also get "alerts/notifications" for other apps on your phone, but  you cannot use them, without WiFi or upgrading to a data plan.
The SIM does work on an old Android phone I have, and works well.
Ads are not in calls, or via text, but inline with texts in the app, but easy to look over.  There are banner ads in the app, and inline with your texts.  I haven't found them a bother.
Don't expect any support.  While they do have chat support available until around 2:30 EST each day, I've never been able to access it, and from Reddit, those that do seem to rarely get anything more than their very most basic queries answered.
I have one line which works fine.  The 2nd line, I left expire, and now, even with a new number and SIM, I can't seem to get it to work, but from what I've read, I'm just frustrating myself.
App gets updated on Android all the time, so they must be doing something!
I don't work for or get paid to shill for them.  Just letting you know my real-world experience over the last 3-6 months or so.
-Lurker for a long time.  Now getting involved!

Looks like a bit of a gimmick where they’re essentially giving you a voip/virtual line with talk and text via the app.

One gig should be more than enough for Waze. Whatsapp uses a lot more I'm assuming.
Don't even try it.

Only if it's used for a videos and a lot of images. Otherwise, it's fairly efficient.

Cheap Tracphones, use for 2 months on Tracfone then unlock it, and use on the network.

I'm using the Tracfone LG Classic right now, and it has to have active service for 12 months to be unlocked.
