No. You do not need to have your toll free number hosted by UniTel Voice in order to enable SMS texting. In fact, you can keep your toll-free number with your existing provider, sign up for UniTel Voice toll-free texting service, and start receiving and sending text messages on your toll free number without changing a thing. You don’t even have to notify your toll free service provider. If you don’t have a toll-free number, we’ve got you covered. You can get a toll free number from UniTel Voice.

(Each additional 500 text messages is $5.00.)
