I want to set up a soft phone for use for an office manager who has to handle car service, food deliveries, messenger deliveries etc. A (no-SIM) phone that lets them set up a Lyft/Uber, track a FedEx package and place a Seamless order is useful, but it would be more useful if we could add a number to that phone that could also be used to answer calls and receive text messages so they would get the confirmations. The phone would never leave the office, so a cell number is over the top (and it would be on wifi anyway, the reception isn’t great). I can set up the voice calling side, but I’ve been banging my head trying to work out the texting side of things. We can’t do Whatsapp or iMessages since everyone sending is probably sending an automated SMS/MMS.
- Is it possible?
- what clients would you recommend (Android or iOS is fine)?
