Your own Dedicated Mobile Number allows staff, clients and customers to send text messages to a virtual mobile number and have these delivered to you via the internet.
You can receive the text message via email, our web dashboard, or via REST API.
Sending and receiving from your Australian Virtual Mobile Number is supported.
New Zealand mobiles are capable of texting your Australian virtual mobile number, however texts sent from your virtual mobile number to New Zealand mobiles will be delivered with a short code Caller ID (eg 1234). This is a New Zealand industry limitation.
