Our service is not currently compatible with Apple's iMessage service to send and receive messages. Any messages sent to and from a NumberBarn or NumberGarage number are considered text messages.
iMessage is a service used between iOS devices requiring an active SIM, Apple ID, and WiFi connection. For example, a message sent from an Apple phone to another Apple phone can use either the iMessage or text message service. A message sent from an Apple Phone to a NumberBarn or NumberGarage number or a non-Apple device will be sent and received as a text message.
That said, if you are looking for a better texting experience with NumberBarn, be sure to check out our mobile application. Learn more in the following article:
