Connect quickly with business texting.

Send and receive unlimited texts on your Grasshopper Connect business number.


What is business SMS?

SMS for business, better known as business texting, lets you conveniently send and receive text messages on your business phone number rather than your personal number. Provide quick updates to customers, confirm appointments, and reply back using the same recognizable number you take business calls on.

And with the Grasshopper Connect app, you can see your business texts alongside emails, voicemails and phone calls so you have a view of all interactions with every business contact.

What are the benefits of business texting?

  • Keep your personal texts separate from texts with customers.
  • Viewing texts next to other exchanges with a client will give you all the context you need for that next conversation.
  • Give your business another communication channel that more and more customers prefer.
  • Easily and quietly respond to missed calls when you’re in a meeting or just can’t talk on the phone.
  • Communicate visually with your customers and partners through business MMS picture messages.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I send texts internationally?

Only between the US and Canada for now. With very few exceptions, Grasshopper business texting works for toll-free and local numbers in both countries. Note that we can’t send texts from a toll-free number to a Canada number just yet, but we’re working on it. We’re also looking to add more countries, so stay tuned!

Is there a limit to how many texts I can send?

Nope. We’re all about being limitless, so send as many business SMS messages as you want.

Can I send MMS picture texts internationally?

MMS picture texts only work with local numbers in the US and Canada for now. Stay tuned as we work on it!

How will I know when a business text comes in?

Every text will show up in your Conversations view with the text icon of the Grasshopper Connect app. You can also enable push notifications so you’ll always know right when they arrive, just like you would with your personal text messages.

Can I send a group text message with Grasshopper Connect?

You can receive a group message and interact with that group text but you cannot compose a new message to multiple people. Also, it’s not possible yet to send a group text from toll-free numbers.
