How do virtual mobile numbers work?

Local dedicated numbers were designed for the local market. This means that you can send and receive SMS messages from local numbers, not globally. TextMagic offers dedicated numbers in over 30 countries.

Using a dedicated number you can:

  • Send text messages
  • Receive replies to messages you have sent
  • Receive incoming text messages

What is auto-recharge and how does it work?

The auto-recharge feature will automatically top up your TextMagic SMS account every time your balance falls below a set amount. Activating this feature will ensure that you never lose your virtual mobile number.

To enable auto-recharge, simply navigate to Account -> Auto-recharge. Select the payment method of choice (PayPal or credit/debit), enter your details and save changes. Click on Activate auto-recharge and Save.

Do I really need a dedicated number?

This depends on your business needs and location. If you’re trying to send messages in North America, you will most definitely need to purchase a dedicated number because of carrier restrictions. The good news is that some countries can use shared numbers for two-way text messaging.

What can I do if my country isn’t on the list of virtual mobile numbers?

For countries we don’t offer dedicated numbers in, you can try using a global UK number. If the number works, you can use it for your business needs, but you will be charged the international rate of mobile operators.

How much does it cost for someone to send a message to my dedicated number?

The cost for sending the SMS is just the standard charge made by your client’s mobile operator for sending a message.

TextMagic never charges your client for sending a message.

Can I use a dedicated number for verification purposes, i.e., bank confirmations, Google account verifications, etc.?

No, you cannot.

Verification text messages are usually sent via SMS providers, like TextMagic, while a dedicated number can receive text messages only from regular mobile subscribers, not SMS providers.

Can I block incoming text messages from specific numbers?

Yes, you can. You can add specific numbers to a blacklist.
