Numbers based in the UK cannot receive text messages sent from outside of the UK. Some third party services do not consistently or reliably work with certain phone numbers. If you're trying to test, using Google Voice has been found to be one of the most consistently reliable services. We do not offer refunds for issues that are due to third party services being incompatible when the problem is not at our end.

Right now we only support USA and Canada with beta support for the UK, but we do have plans to support another 20 countries soon.
Many users want to know if using NumberProxy allows you to use your phone anonymously, and the answer is no. NumberProxy was created to provide user-to-user privacy, meaning that if you call or text someone your primary number is not visible to the person you are communicating with and is not easily traceable.
When you create a NumberProxy you have several options based on how long you need the number and how much you plan to use it. Each plan has a different configuration of duration, minutes, and messages. For example, a Short NumberProxy is good for 7 days, 20 minutes of voice, or 60 text messages.
What this means is that a Short NumberProxy will expire at the earliest of the following events:
Unused minutes, messages, and duration are forfeited when the number is tossed. For example, leftover voice minutes at the end of a 30-day plan cannot be recovered if it expires.
Numbers can be recharged via the button on the Numbers page. Any additional duration or minutes purchased as an extension are additive to your current duration and minutes. (For example, if you buy a 30-day recharge for an existing number with 10 days left on it, it will result in a number that has 40 days left to go.)
When you manually toss a number, any remaining duration, minutes, or messages are forfeit.
Once your number expires, it will immediately go out of service. The call history and any messages will be securely deleted from our servers. If you need to keep your number active, you must recharge it before the expiration as once a number has expired it is gone forever.
Placing a call is simple. Just call your own ProxyNumber from your private number. When you call your own ProxyNumber you will be prompted for your PIN number. Just enter your PIN and you will be able to make outgoing calls. Outgoing calls will have your ProxyNumber set as the caller ID.
