Messaging Applications

Our Messaging Applications, such as SMS/MMS Access Manager, Integrated Messaging and Desktop Messaging, can help you stay in touch with large numbers of people at once.



Send and receive bulk SMS/MMS messages from your mobile phone or personal computer. This service is ideal for keeping staff members and customers up to date on your latest business activities.

You can use your own SMS and MMS enabled applications, such as your PC, to directly access our mobile SMS and MMS networks and those of other operators to send and/or receive bulk text and picture messages.

You’ll be able to enhance your business and consumer communications with effective job dispatches, permission marketing, reminders, consumer competitions and content provisioning, saving time and money. If your business doesn't currently have text messaging software, you may prefer Telstra Desktop Messaging, where the messaging application is provided for you.
