As the name says, two-way SMS means basically sending and receiving messages in your computer's inbox, which truly is the way to go for mobile marketers and promotions. Mobile users will sooner trust a business that has a conversational approach, where user's interaction and choice matter. When combined with personalised content, two-way SMS will really feel intimate, unobtrusive – personal.

Our platform is completely integrated – this means that you can send and receive SMS, collate and analyse the results, run a dynamic campaign; from one place. The best part is, the whole process is completely intuitive, so that you can jump in and use the service within minutes. You also get free 24/7 technical support, SMPP/HTTP API integration for developers, with the optional features such as Virtual SIM hosting for a minimal fee.
Virtual SIM hosting allows you to receive inbound SMS to your application on a dedicated number without need for a physical SIM.
You are not restricted by your service users' geographic location and they can reach you from every corner of the globe.
Here's how it works:
You register one or more dedicated numbers on Infobip's platform.
The numbers are bound to your account and placed into a virtual hosting setup – we call it 'virtual SIM', because there's no physical SIM card used.
All of the messages received by this number are processed and forwarded to you directly.
You are able to use all the features such as Keywords or Auto-Replies.
The up-time is directly tied to SMSC, so there's no chance of 'SIM malfunction.'
