Can a toll free number send or receive text messages from a cell phone?

Yes! Toll-free SMS text messaging is a new technology that only a handful of toll-free service providers (such as Unitel) are now offering. Only recently have toll-free numbers been able to connect to the SMS system in the U.S. and Canada. 

In the past, carriers that received an SMS text message destined for an 800 number would not deliver it, as there was no mechanism for routing such messages until now.
