Setting SMS on the Vodia phone system isn't that difficult however we will need to set up a few configurations in the  user portal 

Configure your number to use SMS

Thinq API is found below called "Tokens" please check the following example below. Once you have created your API tokens

once created you should see the Token user and Token key itself. You will need this information for the Vodia phone system. 






User profile

Thinq user profile information is needed as the "Account id" Is not shown with the API 

Write your "Account ID" number as we will use this on the Vodia phone system 





Phone System SMS Settings

Navigate to your Vodia phone system "System Level"  then go to "Messaging" -- Notifications  

  • Provider : Thinq
  • Username or account: Thinq user account found in a user profile which consists of 5 number 
  • Application ID:  User Token user from API list
  • Text messaging-enabled for domains by default is "optional" 
  • URL Prefix: recvsms
  • Address for pulling MMS content: https://YourDNS
  • Default ANI for sending SMS messages:  Thinq phone number configured for SMS 

Save the configuration. 

Please check below for visual aid. 






Under the extension "ANI for SMS" must use the SMS number programmed on thinq. This has to be done for all the users in the tenant but the SMS number cannot be the same, SMS work individually just like smartphones work ;)
