Virtual Mobile Numbers

Receive SMS using Virtual Mobile Numbers.

The "Virtual Mobile" solution brings high performance with low message delivery latency using Virtual Mobile Numbers. A single number allows an application to receive incoming SMS from all supported networks worldwide. The Virtual Mobile Numbers behave in the same way as a regular mobile number, but with the benefit of significantly higher throughput (20-50 SMS per second) to your application.

Use a Virtual Mobile Number when sending an SMS to a mobile phone so that you can receive a reply back to your application.

VMNs can be used to provide a local number to which mobiles from the same country can send messages for the same cost as sending a message to any other local mobile number. Mobiles from other supported networks worldwide can also send to the same number.

Use VMNs for text marketing to receive replies and converse with customers.

VMNs are available from the following countries:

  • πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§ UK (+44) - mainland
  • πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§ UK (+44) - channel islands
  • πŸ‡©πŸ‡° Denmark (+45)

Set-up and rental pricing for VMNs vary by country.
