If you have a main church line (e.g. landline, office phone, etc.) you'd like to use for sending and and receiving texts, Clearstream can host the SMS side of your existing number. The phone system you currently have stays in place, but all incoming texts go to your Clearstream Inbox where you can view them and reply. SMS hosting is available for most local, toll-free, and VoIP numbers.

All Google Voice numbers and some others are not eligible for SMS hosting. If you want to submit an SMS hosting request, simply reach out to our team through chat or email ([email protected]).
You can also port your number into Clearstream. This is different than SMS hosting as text and voice would be completely released from your current carrier.
