Hi Shaun,

I believe Maxotel may also offer a Mobile product like this as well, it may be worth reaching out to Alex and the team and checking in on what they can offer, they’ve got a pretty solid service.

Kindest Regards,

I currently use an AU Mobile number hosted with Twilio and route the inbound SMS to email (via a webhook) and our inbound calls are routing in via SIP.
Twilio's MMS in Australia is converted to an SMS by the carrier with an embedded URL and password in the SMS. You then log into a mini site hosted by the carrier and download the MMS attachment.

With a bit of code, the login to the site could be scraped and you could have your SMS to Email and Sip calls.

If your interested in scoping something out I can certainly assist you.

Hi folks,

Been looking for a solution that will allow us to either

a) Pop some SIM cards in a device, or
b) Port mobile numbers over to a VoIP provider

And upon doing so, receive calls to SIP, and SMS+MMS to email. I can’t
really find any products that can do this, and Twilio has confirmed they
can’t do it (MMS specifically) - same with Maxotel. Most providers
seem to do VoIP + SMS, but not MMS. Most devices I’ve found will
either do calls but not MMS+SMS, or MMS+SMS to email but no calls.

Can anyone make some suggestions around possible products? Or am I
restricted to putting permanent redirects on the mobile numbers with and
SMS+MMS receiving device? If so, are there any “industry standard”
ones here? Specifically it’s 3 SIM cards that we need to support.
