Can I port my toll-free number into Twilio to use for text messaging?

Yes! Once you’ve ported your toll-free phone number into Twilio it will be enabled for sending and receiving SMS messages as part of the porting process. You just have to configure your SMS request URL to get started. Go here to begin the porting process.

Please keep in mind that if you decide to port your toll-free number away from Twilio, your number may no longer be enabled for SMS messaging.

Effective November 8 2023, all US Toll-Free numbers must be verified before they can be used for sms messaging in the U.S. and Canada. As of that date, Toll-Free numbers will be blocked from messaging until they've been submitted for verification. Please see this support article for further information.
