Perhaps one of these three methods will help ...

\only<n>{This is the nth text \onslide<article>{\\ \smallskip}}%
\only<n+1>{This is the (n+1)th text \mode<article>{\\ \smallskip}}%
\only<n+2>{This is the (n+2)th text \onslide<presentation:0>{\\  

I use article mode for making handouts ... use "handout" rather than  
"article" in the first two options if that is what is supposed to  
work instead. Adjust \smallskip accordingly.
