Inbound SMS

How to accept SMS messages through your Local Geographic Number

If you've got a Local Number with us, you can receive SMS messages through it. There are three ways you can read the messages coming in to your Local Number - online on myTTNC, have them forwarded to your email or receive them directly on your mobile.

Inbound SMS number restrictions

You can set up Inbound SMS on any local number, except for 0207 and 0208 numbers or any numbers that have been ported to us from other networks.
