Hosted SMS is a service that allows Bandwidth customers to enable non-Bandwidth owned/operated phone numbers for messaging. These phone numbers will not route any voice traffic over the Bandwidth network.
How Bandwidth is Involved with Hosted SMS
Customers will use the Bandwidth Number Management Dashboard to add/remove phone numbers to the service (available to be automated via API or manually accessed in the Number Management Dashboard). Please note that only carrier numbers with an approved LOA may be used in Hosted SMS.
