2. Can I choose the sender of my SMS?

You can enter your own number or arbitrary text as the sender of your SMS. The sender may not be composed of numbers that can be mistaken as a phone number.

Before entering your mobile phone number or arbitrary text as Sender your number needs to be validated. To validate your mobile phone number, we send you an activation code per SMS. You can request the activation code under "Organsation" / "My Account"
