SMS support

With the vast majority of our clients using our service on their smartphone, we have moved to accommodate the request for SMS support. Starting with January 1, 2014, all most of our US and Canadian phone numbers support incoming SMS, free until further notice!

We can forward the short messages to your cell phone almost instantly, but without the source number. We can also forward the short messages by email, including the source number; we set up SMS forward free of charge for our subscribers but in the future we may charge $5 for email setup. Email has the advantage of allowing you to respond straight by email. We are working to make SMS accessible in VoIP softphones as well, so that you can use it right in your smartphone application.

We recommend using an email account that can provide custom notifications on your smartphone. If the email account you have with us does not, you should be able to set up forwarding, as explained in our voicemail page.

Happy New Year!
