Step 8: Receiving/Replying to a Yahoo SMS

*If the cell phone receiving the SMS has another application similar to this feature (such as Google Voice) then they may not be able to receive the SMS.

a- The cell phone that you sent the SMS message to will receive a message from Yahoo telling them “A Yahoo! User is trying to send you a text message. When it arrives, select ‘Reply’ to continue the conversation”. This confirmation from Yahoo will only occur if it is the first time receiving a text message from Yahoo.

b- Accept your Yahoo SMS, if you sent it to your own cell phone. Follow the instructions from Yahoo. (Some phones will be able to automatically reply without selecting it). The recipient will view the message as being sent from your Yahoo user name (the ‘from’ number will be one from Yahoo’s servers and not related to anyone’s cell phone). Time to receive messages may vary based on phone service and type.

<p>Before I am using this but its not working all the time. </p><p>I work at a medical office and I constantly need to communicate each of my patients. Problem is no one takes phone calls anymore. <br><br>So I asked some friends if they can build a web based sms app that I can communicate to patients via sms. They created https://bizzbuzzer.com/. <br><br>One side of it is web (Businesses send SMS via web) and one side is customer (customer receives the SMS the business has sent). <br><br>When customer replies to the SMS, that business gets the message on your web dashboard, the business has a fixed phone number assigned to it and each business gets a new phone number that is always assigned for you. <br><br>We created this to make our business more efficiently and its already work to some people who use this App and it has proved itself really well. </p>

<p>HI</p>

Hope All Is Well!<br>Thanks A Million!
cool it works <br>
This does not work to send to a 711 Speakout phone in Canada and I'm not sure about Speakout phones in the US. It works with most other providers in North America, though.<br><br>Suggestion: Do a test to make sure it goes through.

I think you could combine steps 6 &amp; 7-- since the picture is the same for both, I had already started typing in the bottom box.
I think you could maybe zoom in a little bit on this picture. I can see what you want me to click on, but I don't know that I need the rest of the screen as much as I would like to see more detail.
Excellent arrow/circle usage.
WOW! i didnt even know this existed! i am going to pass this on to my parents who are technologically incompetent (especially when it comes to text messaging!). With such clear steps they will undoubtedly be able to send me text messages in no time. Great idea and great work to whoever put this together!
With alot of my time at work being on a computer it is a quick and easy way to get in touch with my friends and family. It's very interesting to see how different forms of communication are being transformed and making it easier to stay connected to people!
Actually this helps my husband and me out quite a bit. We use texting to stay in contact all day long and use it extensively. I am on the computer alot so this way I don't have to have my phone by my side all the time. I can send a txt from the computer. Anything that makes life simpler is wonderful. <br> <br>Thanks much
New technology. Getting better all the time. This was great except that there are to many ads. I have a laptop with a broadband wireless adapter with Verizon. I can take it and use it anywhere I can get in touch with a tower and get service. Now I can txt anyone even if I don't have my cell. Now that's service. <br><br>Thanks to whom ever put this together.<br><br>David NM
I never knew that I could use the computer to &quot;text&quot; people! I can now text my grandchildren in Michigan. I could not read some of the message on the screen, but I did get the idea. The video was helpful, but the arrow was too small to see without my glasses. <br>T.K. in CA
