Is there a way to send mass text messages?

Yes, as long as they as they are not for marketing purposes! 

Our Announcements feature allows you to send one message to a group of contacts, instead of texting each contact individually. Click here for more information on using Announcements.

It is important to remember that sending mass messages over SMS is highly regulated, and there are legal restrictions around sending text messages for marketing purposes - for instance, marketing messages must be sent using a short code rather than a 10 digit number, which Textline does not offer. Contacts will also always need to “opt in” before these texts can be sent. 

You can find more information on SMS regulations here.


It is also possible to use a short code with Textline.  You can read a little more about how to do that here.
