If you want to send more than the 330 messages/hour allotted by the Nyaruka TextIt Android application, you can enable a bulk sender like Nexmo to send messages on your Android channel's behalf. Nexmo will enable you to send bulk messages in over 200 countries while providing an intelligent routing scheme to guarantee message delivery*.
*Check Nexmo's Country-Specific Features and Restrictions for your country before proceeding.
This configuration allows your Android phone to receive incoming text messages through it's SIM card while Nexmo sends outbound messages using a sender ID that matches the phone number associated with the SIM.
To enable bulk sending:
- Sign up for an account with Nexmo. Make sure you enter the phone number associated with the SIM card of the Android phone you're using as a channel through our Android application.
