The Business SMS feature (text messaging) allows you to send and receive text messages to and from your MightyCall local (non toll-free) business number. Recipients can reply via their own SMS. Text messaging occurs on your mobile devices (the MightyCall mobile App for iPhone and Android).
- Text messaging is available for 10-digit local phone numbers.
- One message can be up to 140 characters. You can send larger texts up to three message parts.
- Text messaging does not support international numbers, short code, or multimedia messaging service (MMS).
How to enable Text Messaging
- First, you should enable Text messaging at the “Manage Business Numbers” section for the desired phone numbers.
- Go to the “Manage Business Number” section and click “Enable.” Please note your number must be SMS-capable to use text messaging. If your current number does not support text messaging, you can select another SMS-capable number by clicking a filter.
- Now you’re ready to send and receive texts using your MightyCall business number!
