Text Messaging feature in OWA

Want to know if the Text Messaging feature in OWA only works with Windows Mobile devices.
In OWA, if you click on Options and then Phone, you have a button for Text Messaging. I do through a wizard which asks for carrier and phone number but I never get a confirmation code. I know in the past the Text Messaging feature in OWA and Outlook only worked with Windows Mobile OS's. Not sure if that is still true. I have an iPhone 5 with IOS 6.x.

This may sound like a dumb question but does your environment have Exchange Unified Messaging with voice integration? I am trying to figure out how Exchange would send a text message to a phone. We don't have any voice integration here so of course its not going to work.

No, I don't have it in my environment.

I'm also curious how it sends text to a phone to, but my guess it is just sending an email to phone_number@tmomail.net or so. Depends on what your carrier is.

Yeah, you are right. For Verizon, it would be the number @vtext.com. I figured out why its not working right now. We don't have outbound email configured yet. Its a new environment.
