Get a local phone number to launch two-way SMS or Voice campaigns
In order to create two-way SMS (e.g. SMS surveys and Auto-Replies) or IVR campaigns with Missed calls/SMS Opt-ins, you need to purchase a Virtual Phone Number to get a local number people can dial or send SMS messages to.
A local phone number is not required if you simply want to push out Voice IVR calls or send SMS (outbound) without requiring people to text back. But if you want to receive missed calls or receive SMS (inbound), a virtual number is needed. How to buy a virtual number »
