A Virtual Number is a mobile number that can be used for SMS or MMS messaging and is unique to your account, business, or brand.
Virtual Numbers allow users to receive replies from their SMS recipients. They also enable users to advertise their unique Virtual Numbers to the public, and receive messages.
There are several options for configuring how your Virtual Number behaves.
All incoming messages can be:
Sent to an email address you specify
Stored in the online inbox within MXT
Forwarded to a URL via HTTP
Delivered back to your application or software via SMPP
