Congratulations! Your Messaging account has been created and placed in Trial status.

What is Trial status?

When your account is initially created it is placed in "Trial" status. This allows you to provision one phone number and send/receive fifty (50) text messages. You will have access to all the existing features. After you exhaust the available 50 text messages you can upgrade to a paid plan using the Upgrade button located on the Messaging Administration page.
