What is SMS Forwarding?

SMS forwarding enables business subscribers to receive incoming texts from their customers in email format. The service feature helps businesses become more accessible to their customers by offering yet another way to be reached over the phone with greater efficiency.

How SMS Forwarding Works

Forwarding works by sending incoming text messages to the email addresses chosen by the subscribers. For example, SMS forwarding subscribers can get an SMS enabled virtual number to receive incoming texts from selected countries. Incoming SMS content is swiftly and conveniently forwarded in email format, with the sender’s caller ID and text message.

Benefits of SMS Forwarding:

  • Our forwarding plan forwards incoming SMS messages to a predetermined email address chosen by the subscriber
  • SMS-enabled virtual numbers receive incoming texts from specific countries via email inbox
  • Stay current with mobile-friendly trends in regards to communication
  • Empower your clientele an additional option for which they can reach you
  • Because email is mobile, you can receive SMS correspondence from anywhere

SMS Forwarding Packages

Some customers prefer texting over making a phone call or interacting with businesses face-to-face. You can provide an easy-to-reach mobile number to your customers with SMS forwarding. It is great especially for reservations and booking purposes, customer inquiries, and general feedback.

Subscribers can access all of their incoming SMS details through their online control panel. Gain access to SMS  details like time, day, and content by logging in here. SMS details can be used for record-keeping, or to gain information about your customers. We are constantly enhancing SMS forwarding as the technology continues to develop and will be adding more options to this service feature in the near future.

Global Call Forwarding offers different forwarding packages depending on the number of incoming SMS messages needed. Each package has a different number of included messages, and our plans range from a starter package to larger, more dynamic business packages. Once subscribers exceed a certain number of texts that are included in their packages, they are billed a nominal rate per incoming text message.
