    Number Cloaking

    Reasons we can’t text most businesses include business owners do not want to give out their personal phone number or carry two different phones.

    MobileCONNECT keeps your personal phone number private. When you send customers a text message it is processed through our system and delivered from a phone number in our pool. When the User responds, our system keeps track and relays the message back to you.

    This allows you to receive and send messages without revealing your personal number
