Businesses that have vanity toll-free numbers that are heavily promoted in various forms of advertising will find the toll-free texting capability particularly appealing.
 

These new services allow businesses to leverage text messaging’s burgeoning popularity as the go-to form of communication for many consumers. And they want to do that from their own devices, not from one of many over-the-top messaging applications that are now available.
