SMS / Texting

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page



GraphicMail also allows you to send SMS (text) messages to mobile telephones. You simply need to upload your list of mobile telephone numbers and then type in the message you want to send. The message can contain up to 160 characters. If it exceeds 160 characters (130 characters in the US and Canada), you can still send it, but it will be sent as two text messages and will use two text message credits.


Since text messages go out through the mobile phone networks and not the Internet, they are priced differently to emails. Sending one SMS of 160 characters (130 characters in the US and Canada) uses one SMS credit. You cannot convert email credits into SMS credits.


Five SMS send credits are included in your GraphicMail account. All additional SMS send credits need to be purchased.
