Getting Started with Business Text Messaging

   Business Text Messaging User Guide

The Cymbus Help Center will always have the most up-to-date information, but sometimes a hard copy is easier to consume. Download the Business Text Messaging User Guide (PDF).

A service subscription with a local service provider or ISP is required to use Business Text Messaging. Contact your service provider to set up an account. Once your account is set up, you will receive a Welcome email with your username and a link to create your password.

Log In

Once you've created a password, go to your messaging portal URL and log in.

If you ever forget your password, click the link on the login screen and we'll send you an email to reset it.

 Password Requirements

Your password must be 8-16 characters long and include uppercase and lowercase letters and at least one number. If you forget your password, click the link on the login screen.

 

Navigating the Portal

Upon logging in to the account, you’ll land on the Messages inbox for your primary phone number. Each phone number has its own inbox. You can switch to another inbox from the Profile menu in the top right corner.
