We are different from apps like Google Voice or SendHub, which requires the user to set up a different number or to port their number to Google Voice. With MightyText, you can keep using your same phone number, as usual for texting. Note: Google Voice does not use your carrier phone number
NOTE: We use the same push GCM technology that is found in chrome to phone and chrome to mobile. If you experience problems when sending message to the phone, please test on chrome to phone and chrome to mobile.
