Note: the Caller ID is the number that the SMS messages will be sent from. You have the choice to enter a real mobile number (in which case any replies will go directly to that number) OR to write characters (e.g. “Company Name”) which will appear as the sender when a recipient receives the SMS. If you choose this option, recipients will not be able to reply to messages you send.
