Receiving SMS messages on your public number
The Birchills network allows you to send and receive SMS messages using certain incoming numbers.
Unfortunately, not all numbers are capable of receiving SMS messages (ported numbers, for example), so please check with us if you are unsure.
Before you can send or receive SMS messages, you need to activate your Birchills number and define the destination email address. This only needs to be done once.
Activating SMS on your number
From the portal, click Incoming Numbers, then click the number you want to activate. The number you select is highlighted with a grey outline.
Next, click the SMS Settings icon.
Note: If you do not see the SMS settings icon, the number is not compatible with SMS messaging services.
In the menu that appears, tick the Allow incoming checkbox, and enter the email address where incoming SMS messages should be delivered.
