Subscribing to a virtual number

AutoSender and AutoSender Pro Update: Virtual Phone Number

We are excited to announce we have released our most recent version of AutoSender and AutoSender Pro! In this version we have developed a new feature that we cannot wait for our users to see!

In the most recent release we have added a feature that will allow users to subscribe to a virtual number. Our app works by storing your scheduled messages on our cloud server. The message is then automatically sent through a shared number chosen by our server to guarantee the most reliable delivery. Currently this number is not a private number and may be used by anyone else using AutoSender or AutoSender Pro to schedule messages. This is a great way to receive canadian virtual numbers, US virtual numbers, or a virtual messenger for your country.

However, our latest update has added the option to subscribe to receive your own personal number. Once subscribed you will have an option to enter an area code for the area you are located in, then will be able to choose your preferred number from a list of available numbers. The number you chose will then be exclusively reserved for your use unless you end your subscription. Once your subscription ends the message will be available for other users to choose again. Once subscribed you will have the option to choose between sending a message through the cloud number or through your private number.

Once subscribed to a virtual number you can enter an area code and choose from the available numbers.

To subscribe to a virtual number first you must download and register for the app. You can then click the “Balance” tab and select the “Subscription” button. Then scroll down to the “Private Number subscription” box. You will then be able to choose from a 30 day subscription for $2.99USD, 90 day subscription for $8.49USD. or a yearly subscription for $29.99USD.

If after a message has sent you are unsure if you used the private number or the cloud number you can find out by going to the “History” or “Storage” tab, depending on if you are using AutoSender or AutoSender Pro. From there you can click the “+” on the right side of the message you are curious about. From there you will be able to see the number sent and the amount of credits that were used, along with the exact time it was sent originally.

In our current stage of this feature we are only able to offer the ability to schedule messages or pictures that will then send through the virtual phone number. In the future we hope to be able to add a feature that will allow users to also receive replies from schedule messages to their private number. At this time this feature has not been completed but is something we hope to implement.

  1. Hello,

    I am setting up AutoSender for my boss and I want to know if it is at all possible to have the message be sent from his personal phone number. Right now it is coming from a number that is not his. Can you please let me know if this is something I can make happen?

    1. Please be advised that Apple does not allow developers access to the send features on iOS devices. This means we are unable to have messages automatically sent from your personal number.

      The way our app works is by storing the messages on our server where they will be automatically sent from a shared cloud number at the scheduled time. These numbers are shared among users so you are unable to receive responses to them.

      However, we do offer private number subscriptions. These allow you to subscribe to any free US or Canadian number that will be exclusively yours until the end of your subscription. This number will still be different from your personal number but you will be able to both send and receive texts.

      If you have any other questions or concerns please let us know.

    1. Yes this virtual number can be used to sign up to online services that require a real cell number in USA or Canada. If the online service need a real number in other countries it won’t work.
      Most of the online services such as on-line banking, SNS networks like Google/WhatsApp/Facebook…, will need the receiving cell number to receive verification SMS from a short code, for example “112-85”, and so on. Most virtual numbers you can get (including Google Voice number) can’t support the feature. We have contacted the number provider to enable that so that it can work for most online services in US or Canada.
