In the guest chat, you can choose for each message you write rather send the message through the Wishbox chat or through an SMS to the guest phone number.

If you send an SMS message through the guest chat, the guest can reply to you through an SMS that will arrive in the unified guest chat.

An SMS message can fail for several reasons, here are the main reasons –

    • The guest reservation doesn’t include a phone number
    • The guest reservation includes a not valid phone number.
  • The guest phone number is not a mobile phone number and doesn’t support SMS messages.

For these reasons, you will be notified immediately the message can’t be sent, and there will be no charge for the message.

There are other failure reasons that can occur depending on the guest carrier, after our system already processed the sending of the message. You will receive a notice about that in the Wishbox chat in a few seconds. These messages are charged.
