sending text to rc number from actual external phone

I am new here. So I my question may be very basic. sorry for that.

My question is, once sandbox environment is set I get a Ringcentral number which I can use for sending text sms message by creating application there. But can I send sms text messages back to Ringcentral number from an actual external phone.

If so, where can I use to see the message? Do I need to pull the API everytime to read messages.

What is the direct options?
