We are currently migrating our users to a new Exchange 2013 server, and one of the users has pointed out the Text Message Notification feature, allowing you to configure Exchange to send you Text Message Notifications whenever you receive an incoming email.
While exploring this feature, I've discovered that it does not appear to require any 3rd party support, it 'just works', however, we are in Canada, and it only seems to support the Bell and Telus carriers. In order for this feature to be useful to us, it would have to at least support Rogers as well.
There is a link that advises "If you don't see your mobile service provider listed here, we have not yet established a relationship with your mobile service provider":
Poking around for more information on this, it seems to me that this type of feature used to require either an active sync connected device to send out the SMS messages, or a third party OMS service (which I believe has been discontinued).
I'm wondering if anyone can advise if it is possible for us to add support for additional carriers ourselves, or if we are stuck waiting for Microsoft to 'form a relationship' with other carriers?
Any information would be appreciated, thanks!
