Phone Numbers

Can I send and receive SMS?

Yes and no. You can receive SMS on some types of numbers that we provide. It is however not yet possible to send SMS with our service.

All Mobile numbers (except from Brazil, Lithuania and Nicaragua) that you can purchase from Sonetel as well as City numbers in Canada.

We deliver these SMS messages to you by email (SMS-to-Email). Emails are sent to the user that the Sonetel phone number is connected to.

The SMS function is activated by default when you buy a number.

We are planning to add the ability to send and receive SMS in our apps, but this function is not available yet.


Please note that the Sonetel service may not be used for identity validation or verification at websites related to banking or any other third party website or online service.

It is free to receive SMS on your phone numbers, but there is a fair usage restriction.
