NEED to know to receive SMS replies
ipipi users are always asking how to receive sms replies.
are some tips to help you:
A key to receiving an SMS reply? The gateway number - the
phone number you call to send an SMS.
you send your SMS message to a gateway number, the gateway
number then sends your message to your friend. When your friend
wants to reply to you, they respond by sending their SMS to
the same gateway number.
why the gateway number is so important?
like when you make a regular phone call on your cell phone,
you have to enter a phone number when you send an SMS. (Hint:
if you don't see a number on your screen, it probably isn't
sure you and your friends have the gateway
numbers you need to send and reply to SMS messages.
If you want to receive replies, remember to have your friends'
phones as registered phones in your ipipi
account so the gateway number knows where to deliver each
sms. To register your friends' phones, click on the "registered
devices" link when you login to ipipi.com.
