Data247 Text@ Service

O ur [email protected] service doesn’t send text messages but provides businesses with phone data that facilitates the sending of text messages to their customers. It does this by retrieving Email-to-SMS and Email-to-MMS gateway addresses of client’s wireless phones. Businesses then use these addresses to send SMS and/or MMS messages to their clients via regular email.


Just like all Data247 services, [email protected] service provides multiple ways to look-up phone numbers; real-time API, XML, batch file uploads, FTP server, Browser extensions, and manual data entry.



  • FILE UPLOAD UTILITY Upload a file of phone numbers to process, and we'll send you back a new file which contains the carrier names and email addresses for each phone number.
  • MANUAL TRANSACTIONS You can also enter phone numbers manually through our website.
  • SIMPLE API For integrating our service with your software application, we provide an API which uses standard HTTPS protocol (you can test our service from your Internet Browser). The response data is returned in standard XML format.
  • NUMBER PORTABILITY AWARENESS When your client ports their phone number from one carrier to another, we know about it almost immediately. We guarantee that our records will be updated within one business day, although they're usually updated within an hour.
  • 99.99% UPTIME SLA PER CALENDAR MONTH We guarantee no more than 4 minutes of downtime per month.
  • OVER 99% HIT RATE FOR USA PHONE NUMBERS This means that we fail to return the complete set of information for less than 1% of valid US phone numbers.
  • EXCELLENT CUSTOMER SUPPORT Whether by phone or email, we'll give you the attention you need to get our service up and running.
