How do I send and receive text messages from the desktop apps?
SMS (texting) allows you to send and receive text messages on your Grasshopper number using the mobile or desktop apps.
Note: This is an add-on feature that must be enabled separately for each individual Grasshopper phone number on your account.
Attention: If using a toll-free phone number for instant response, make sure you have verified your phone number for text messages.
Text messages automatically show in the messages section and refresh automatically. When a new text message is received, you will receive a notification from the Grasshopper app.
- Sign in to the desktop app.
- Select Messages in the left sidebar.
- If more than one phone number is enabled with texting, use the drop-down menu at the top of the window to switch between phone numbers.
- Select an existing conversation to read and reply to incoming texts, or click the compose icon to send a new text.
