The Telerivet Gateway app makes it easy to set up an SMS messaging service anywhere in the world, and integrates with Telerivet's online platform so you can easily send and receive SMS messages from any web browser.
When anyone sends a text message to your Android phone, it will automatically be sent to Telerivet.com. And when you send messages from Telerivet.com, they'll be sent from your Android phone. Since your Android phone just uses a regular SIM card, it will have a local phone number from your country.
The Telerivet Gateway app is compatible with any phone with Android 4.0 or higher – more than 99% of Android phones.
For best results, Telerivet recommends installing the Telerivet Gateway app on an Android phone from a major global brand such as Samsung, LG, or Google.
The Telerivet Gateway app is not recommended on phones manufactured by Huawei, Tecno, or Xiaomi, because these phones may occasionally terminate the Telerivet Gateway app.
Most inexpensive Android phones work fine – many are available for $100 or less. However, the Telerivet Gateway app is not recommended on ultra-budget smartphones using Android Go.
The Telerivet Gateway app is only recommended if you expect to send fewer than about 1,000 messages per day. For higher volume messaging, use an SMS gateway that provides a virtual number, custom sender ID, or shortcode.
