Connection problem with MagicMessage
We advise all customers using MagicMessage to switch to using TextMagic Messenger.
MagicMessage has two built-in ways to connect to the TextMagic Server. The default way uses standard Microsoft software. However this sometimes gives problems with certain personal firewall software and corporate web proxy servers, so it also contains an alternative connection method.
The program will switch automatically from the default to alternative method if it sees a connection problem, but it does not switch back automatically. However you can check what method it is using and switch yourself. If you click on tools you will see a flag labelled use alternative connection. Simply click on the switch to toggle between the two methods.
The alternative connection method uses a hidden instance of your default browser. Normally this would be Microsoft Internet Explorer. It may not work with other browsers.
NOTE: A convenient way to check that MagicMessage can connect is to ask it to get you balance. Run the program and click on tools, select account details and here you will find a "get balance" button.

What are SMS credits?
The cost for sending a text message depends on the country to which you’re sending. The prices shown are for sending to the country you've selected. If you plan to send to more than one country, please select each country from the list to see how the cost varies.
We use a credit system to help us calculate how many text messages you have left. For example, 100 SMS credits will allow you to send 125 text messages to the UK or 200 text messages to Sweden.
Long text messages over 160 characters also use more credits. Do not worry though, we calculate the number of credits before you send a message with our online SMS products.
