Purchasing a Virtual Number
Standard VNs allow you to send SMS and receive both SMS and MMS, while Call Forward Virtual Numbers (CFVN) have sending/receiving SMS capabilities only and allow you to forward calls made to this number.
To purchase an Australian SMS + MMS or SMS + Call Forward Virtual Number
1. Navigate to Virtual Numbers then click Order Number
2. Use the checkboxes to narrow results to either SMS+MMS or SMS+Call Forward
3. Select a number from the dropdown results and follow the payment prompts.
For International Virtual Numbers

Your request has now been sent to the touchSMS team. You will be notified once the Virtual Number has been provisioned and an invoice raised on your account.

Contact our support team at email@example.com to discuss.
