We added an option that will allow you to send SMS to a google voice number using your own Google Voice account (We would recommend creating a special account for this because you will need to give the passwords to whomever sends the sms and you might be blocked any time by google whenever they decide ......)


To enable this option you need to add a Google Voice record to the Cell Email setting. Put @GoogleVoice.JLS by the valuetext column.

No. Email them instead to their google email.

This is becoming a big issue as many people are porting their cell numbers to google voice so that they can get calls and text to multiple phones, especially since people are refraining from bringing their smart phones to shul. they are not getting their text messages and we do not necessarily know their Gmail accounts or even if yes, they won’t get a text when they are not with their smart phone.

Any ideas?

One parent just called me to give me the cell number of his device, he wants us to enter it to use for text only, how should we handle?

Google Voice does not have an option of SMS EMAIL Gateway.

If this is very important we have 2 options.

1) Setup SMS integration with Twilio which charges 1 penny per message sent.

2) Get an android device with unlimited texting and use that as your SMS gateway to send out SMS. In this option you do not need to pay per SMS and you might choose to send all your text via this device.

The cost for any of these two options would be approx $1000
