Not receiving text from toll-free number

What phone do you have? MOTO G

What plan are you on? Where can I find that info?

Does your plan include data, or just talk & text? YES


Issue Description

I am no longer receiving text messages from our church. The text service Flocknote.com said they recently switched to using toll-free numbers and said to make sure my cell provider allows texts from toll-free numbers.

Please advise.

Thank you!

The only thing I can find regarding toll-free texts is from this older help article: https://help.republicwireless.com/hc/en-us/articles/115006665648-SMS-Text-Messaging-

TollFree (TF) to SMS - This is a text message sent from a toll-free number.

  • Some companies use TollFree (TF) to SMS to send messages without short codes for customer service functions and alert systems.
  • There’s no need to enable TollFree (TF) to SMS, it’s already enabled in our app and follows the normal flow between WiFi and cellular networks.
  • Emojis are enabled, standard character limits still apply.
