    Default Respond to VOIPo SMS from remote device?

    I have just activated SMS on my account. I am wondering if anyone knows of any way to respond to an incoming SMS from a remote device possibly using a SIP Client? I know I can have the messages forwarded to my primary cell phone number but I can't respond from that having it come from my VOIPo number. Any suggestions as to if and how this can be accomplished?

    Hello,

    You may want to look into the forward to email option. Email replies will be sent back via SMS network (beta).

    Hi Brandon,

    That works. It's a bit of a kludge but it works.

    Thanks for the help.

    Just another thought Brandon... Is there any way to initiate a text from a phone other than by replying to a prior message? In other words, if I need to text someone and I'm not in front of the PC is there any way for me to do that?

    You would need to essentially use the web portal / mobile browser / data connection at this time.

    We are looking into other options to provide more convenience and access and hope to have them available at some point in future.

    So basically I need to go to my portal on my smartphone to do this? That's fine but I want to make sure I'm understanding correctly. I really hope other options are on the way. Thanks again for all of your help.

    For now, yes. We may add additional options in the future.

    A work around is to save 1 old email for each person then you can reply to that email to send new SMS to that person. Voipo Really need apps for Android, iPhone, Windows & Linux. its a hassle to login to cpanel to send SMS!
