Send Messages on the Go

You don’t have to be by a computer to send group text messages to your list. With SimpleTexting, you can use group texting right from your phone. Configure communications on the go with our easy-to-use system, then reach your subscribers by texting a message to your list through our short code, 555888.

Setting Up Group Text from Phone

Log in to SimpleTexting and click Apps, then click Group Text from Phone. You need to grant a phone permission before using it to send group texts, so click Add Cellphone to get started. The cellphone you add will receive a text requesting that you confirm by replying Y or Yes.

Once your number is confirmed, you can send group blasts in two easy steps. First, text the appropriate list name to 555888. (To send a text to multiple lists, text multiple list names separated by commas.)

Then, you’ll receive a text back requesting your actual message. Reply with the message you’d like to send, and SimpleTexting will push it out to the lists you specified in Step 1.
