How do I send and receive text messages from the mobile apps?

Grasshopper SMS (texting) allows you to send and receive text messages on your Grasshopper number using the mobile or desktop apps. Note that it is an add-on feature that must be enabled separately for each individual Grasshopper phone number on your account. 

Text messages automatically show in the Texts section and refresh automatically every 60 seconds. When a new text message is received, you will receive a notification from the Grasshopper app (as long as push notifications are enabled). 

  1. Log in to the iOS or Android app. 
  2. Tap Texts in the lower toolbar.
  3. If more than one phone number is enabled with texting, tap "Text from (XXX) XXX-XXXX" in the upper toolbar to switch between phone numbers.
  4. Tap an existing conversation to read and reply to incoming texts, or tap the Compose icon in the upper toolbar to send a new text.
