Service provides you with a forwarded mobile number. SMS sent to that number are received on your email address. There is no need for an App to receive SMS.
Service lets you establish a presence in covered countries for business or personal use. You are provided a mobile number in the country you choose. Use it to make it easy and cheap for your customers, vendors, interviewers, friends or family to text you.
Since SMS is also forwarded to your emailID, you can use the number to setup WhatsApp for business or personal use.
SMS from within the chosen country.
Texters from within the country SMS you as if they are texting a local mobile number. E.g. If you choose a UK forwarded SIM, you will get a number like +44 7xxxxxxxxxx and texters from within UK will dial 07xxxxxxxxx to reach you.
Texting / SMS from outside the chosen country
This service is intended primarily for texters within the chosen country. Reachability of these numbers when texting from outside the country cannot be guaranteed. We advise that for texting outside the chosen country you provide them your Indian mobile number.
We require your passport and recent utility bill as address proof before activation of the number. If subscribing by a company, certificate of incorporation can be used. Some countries have additional documentation requirements seen under the drop down after choosing the country. In some cases after submitting the initial documents you may be asked to provide additional documentation.
Activation of your forwarded SIM is generally done 2 working days after your documentation is accepted by the operators in the chosen country. You will receive your number by email after activation. No activation on Sundays.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Why cant I have SMS forwarded to my phone as an SMS?
Due to recent regulations passed by TRAI, delivering freeform SMS to Indian phones has become difficult. If regulations change we will be happy to deliver by SMS too.
Can I choose the number I get?
Unfortunately not. You will be allocated a random mobile number after activation.
Can I have multiple SIMs forwarded to a single Indian phone?
Yes! You can forward as many SIMs as you need to your Indian phone. Each SIM must be individually subscribed to.
Can I make outgoing SMS using the forwarded SIMs?
No, since the forwarded SIM is not physically present on your phone.
