Great service, my customers love that I send texts instead of emails now.

The app has some great features… I love that it includes voicemail, but also that I can send a text response to missed calls. Receiving voicemail messages as both a sound and text message is brilliant. Being able to ‘broadcast’ text messages to lists is really useful.
