Note: If you don't have an Android phone yet, you can test EnvayaSMS on your computer.
Download and install EnvayaSMS directly from the link below:EnvayaSMS-release.apk
You can also download the source code from GitHub and build EnvayaSMS yourself.
It is assumed that your organization already has an HTTP server, or has the technical expertise to set up an HTTP server.
Follow the instructions in the API Reference page to learn how to construct a resource on your HTTP server that can communicate with EnvayaSMS.
If this sounds difficult, you may want to consider using Telerivet instead. Telerivet is a service that makes it easy to use an Android phone to deploy an SMS service without needing your own server or programming experience.
After your server is configured, configure EnvayaSMS on your phone to connect to your server as follows:
To test if EnvayaSMS has been configured properly and can connect to your server, open the EnvayaSMS app, click the Menu button, then click "Test Connection".
Important: After EnvayaSMS is enabled, it will forward all SMS messages regardless of whether the EnvayaSMS app is open. If you want to use SMS normally again, return to EnvayaSMS' settings screen and uncheck "Enable EnvayaSMS".
If you're testing EnvayaSMS with an Android phone that you're also using for normal communication, you can enable "Test mode" on the settings screen. When Test mode is enabled, EnvayaSMS will only handle SMS messages from the phone numbers you specify.
By default, Android prevents EnvayaSMS from sending more than 100 outgoing SMS messages per hour. However, that limit can be increased by installing EnvayaSMS Expansion Packs.
Each Expansion Pack allows EnvayaSMS to increase its sending limit by an additional 100 outgoing SMS messages per hour. For example, if you install 4 expansion packs, EnvayaSMS will be able to send up to 500 outgoing SMS messages per hour.
With Expansion Packs, EnvayaSMS is limited only by how fast your phone can send and receive SMS (likely about 1000 messages/hour), and by your mobile provider's usage limits and terms of service.
