Support is non existent... The plugin is okay, however support is non existent. The videos demonstrating the plugins capabilities on the website are of every single addon, you can not replicate this functionality with individual addons it is a little deceiving. The plugin also cannot be used to SMS existing customers without manually entering their phone numbers again. After learning of its shortfalls for my situation and requesting a refund, there was no response from support. I only managed to get a response when posting on the public forum. They would send a short email, I would reply and then again I would get no response. Now 3 weeks later and still no refund and only superficial responses from support. By far the worst experience with a Plugin author...

Kudos to the developers of this plugin. We've tried many SMS plugins from WP's repository and, by far, this one performs the best. It integrates nicely with other plugins that depend on Twilio and/or offer SMS capabilities such as gAppointments. Support is friendly, fast, and effective. Job well done. Cheers!

Perfect for us! Not only is the product super functional and easy to use, the author is amazing and offers some of the best support we have ever enjoyed. You can have great confidence with this product and the more you use it, the better you will like it. We are tough to please and we are very happy!

As Team manager, I am advising all members will use that plugin. It is good because very flexible and doesn't waste time for developers. And customizing is not difficult and feel family.

I wonder why the developer has not continued working on this great plugin.. Very simple to implement and has great potentials. Please Dear Developer, do not abandon this plugin.
