There should be an option for all users to be under the main number and only have extensions as opposed to having individual numbers. There should also be a feature that allows all users to send texts from the main number as to not confuse clients.

I have seen few organizations that required individual numbers apart from internal extension numbers that help them to communicate from different branches.

But as per your requirement you can always post a feature request here:

We literally just ported over today and we just found this out. No one told us this when we signed up and now we are going to lose customers because everyone is texting our current main number.

We just found this out as well. Luckily we have not cancelled our services with our other provider so we are still receiving text, but it would have been a huge mess if we had. So ridiculous.
