Veracross does not have the ability to control the From display information for SMS messaging as you can with email messaging, as this is largely controlled by the phone carrier of the recipient.

As with any mobile phone service, caller ID is provided by the carrier on a case-by-case basis — meaning some provide it free-of-charge while others provide it at a cost to their customers.
