SMS network relay 6 hops?


#1

Do SMS network relay messages go out to 6 hops looking for a users with a cellular signal?

Will SMS network relay messages route through users that have a WiFi signal but not cellular?

@danielagotenna @VirginiagoTenna any thoughts?

SMS relay uses Twilio so it will only require internet to connect to Twilio and the SMS will be sent from the internet to the target phone number. It will not come from your number, but it will say it’s on your behalf. It should also do 6 hops, seeing as before the update it also did 3 hops if I remember correctly.

Thanks for all the info! I’ve used SMS network relay many times while camping in areas with poor cell coverage. it works great when you have a large group of gotenna campers who have different cellular providers.
