VOIPo ( has added SMS Text messaging to its VoIP service for home and small business users. The company is one of the first VoIP providers to offer SMS-enabled phone numbers.

VOIPo is a landline replacement service and provides users with a small device that connects to a high-speed internet connection and then regular home telephones are connected to the device. Historically, SMS has only been available on wireless numbers and not on landline or VoIP numbers.

Once SMS is enabled on a VOIPo phone number, users are able to send and receive SMS text messages from within the VOIPo control panel to and from virtually any US-based SMS capable phone number including wireless numbers. In addition to viewing messages online, the company also offers a variety of forwarding options to forward incoming SMS messages to e-mail or another SMS-capable number.

"We are very excited to add SMS text messaging to our service. Traditionally, VoIP has been about saving money on phone service. Going beyond that, our goal is to help customers get more out of their phone service and provide functionality that is not available on a traditional landline. The latest addition of SMS is an example of the innovative features and capabilities we're adding." commented VOIPo CEO Timothy Dick.
