What I Need
The following are the requirements for using SMS From Me:
1. Android Phone
Our smart phone application needs to run on an Android Phone. We make sure that it works on Android 4.4 (KitKat) and newer phones (See: Android Version History.) It may work on older phones as well, however, we do not offer support for them.
2. Android Application (Free)
You need to install our SMS From Me Android Application on your phone and do the setup.
The application is free.
3. Internet Account
You need to create an online Internet account. It is used to manage the text messages you want sent through your phone. To add text messages, you can:
- Sending a Message by Email to email@example.com
- Sending a Message using a URL
- Send a Message using an app. such as Zapier
- Send a Message using the REST API (Developers Only)
Once a new message is added, the SMS From Me application installed on your phone reads those messages and forwards them to the specified destination.
Your Internet account includes a $9.99/mo charge paid in advance. This covers for all the data transfers, support, and enhancements to the system. Note that does not include any payment due to your phone carrier.
You then need leads to whom you will be sending these text messages.
5. Zapier Account (optional)
Zapier offers automatism and integration with over 750 applications, including SMS From Me. Having a Zapier account will allow you to use SMS From Me to the fullest. It already supports 4 triggers (whenever a message is created, blocked, sent, failed) and one action (create a new message.)
6. InstaPage Account (optional)
If you already registered with your email address and needed to re-validate (i.e. the first validation somehow failed) then go to the Validate Page where you can request for a new validation code to be emailed to you.
