What is a Virtual Number ?
A virtual phone number (SDA) is a 10-digit mobile number used in reception for SMS conversations on the internet. It allows its users to receive text messages online and trigger automatic actions when they receive them.
In general, companies adopt it to be contacted on the internet and/or to engage in conversations with their audience by SMS. At Octopush, we offer telephone numbers in over 33 countries.
