How to use Text Phone Launch

To launch a broadcast, you'll send a text (that begins with the # sign) to your account's toll-free number. If you want to send a text to a specific group instead of everyone, you'll need to know the List ID of the group that you want to text. You can learn about List ID's here

To text a specific group: 

  1. Text #ListID and your message to your account's toll-free number.
    1. Example: "#6 Coach Jones here. The start time for tomorrow's game has changed to 8pm." 

To text all of the cell phone numbers in your account: 

  1. Text #all or #0 and your message to your account's toll-free number.
    1. Example: "#all Coach Jones here - Don't be late for tomorrow's 8pm game!"

You are also able to send a broadcast directly through the Text-Em-All mobile site which you can download at
