All Relay UK Users who have associated a TextNumber with their mobile phone (within the 07777 number range), are able to receive SMS messages that are sent to that number. Messages will be forwarded on to the associated mobile number and this is now available across all mobile networks.
Because of the way TextNumbers work, if you reply to an SMS that’s been forwarded, the reply will show as coming from your mobile number and not the TextNumber. To avoid any confusion, you’re advised to also give out your mobile number whenever you want to communicate with family, friends or business contacts using SMS messaging.
