What is the Grasshopper SMS (texting) feature?

Grasshopper SMS (texting) allows you to send and receive text messages on your Grasshopper number using the mobile or desktop apps. This also includes texts with multimedia content (pictures, videos, group messages), known as MMS

Grasshopper SMS is an add-on feature that can be enabled for an additional monthly fee (which includes unlimited usage, as subject to our fair usage policy). With very few exceptions, any local, toll-free or custom Grasshopper number is eligible to have texting enabled.
