To your customers, text messaging a landline is no different than text messaging a mobile phone number. Your customers do not have to download any special apps to text a landline. It's as simple as opening their default text messaging app on their mobile phone, enter your landline number, write the text message, and press send. A web notification will appear on your computer that has the Texty Pro website opened and logged in when you receive a text message on your landline number. If you have downloaded our mobile apps (iOS/Android), you'll receive push notifications when a new message is received.
