Understanding Incoming SMS
For availing the incoming functionality, you first need to procure a dedicated incoming number to receive replies. All the SMSes received on this number are pushed to your Salesforce org through Oauth.
There are two ways to gather response over incoming numbers:
- Use the number as SenderID (not available in some countries. Please see “Available Countries and Restrictions”)
- Mention the reply number in the out-bound SMS.
For e.g.: Hi Ted, Please reply back at <incoming number>.
