Receiving SMS Text Messages

Your Phone.com service includes unlimited SMS messaging to and from any U.S. local number. This article covers how to enable SMS forwarding on your Phone.com numbers, so that you can receive text messages.

Setting Up SMS Forwarding on Your Phone Number

All of your SMS messages will now be forwarded to the extension you selected, and you can view and manage them in that extension’s Inbox. To view messages, mouse over Configure, click Manage Users and Extensions, and click View Message for the extension that you want to view.
