Registering a Mobile Number
If you would like your Textie app to receive Textie messages addressed to your existing mobile phone number, you will need to register your phone number in the Textie Account Settings. The list of currently supported carriers is here: https://textie.me/sms
If you cannot register your phone number for whatever reason, other Textie users can still send you messages by addressing them to your email address. In fact, this is the way most people use Textie.
Any Textie messages sent to unregistered numbers will be forwarded as SMS, and may incur charges in that form.
NOTE: Textie works independently from your existing SMS plan and billing and cannot be set to intercept normal SMS messages sent to you phone number.
