This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Add Carrier for SMS Notification

Google has introduced Project Fi cell phone service internationally.  I would like to receive text notifications from Ring Central to my Google Project FI cell phone service.  Please add Google Project Fi cell phone service as an option under drop down of cell phone carriers. Thank you.

Hey Daniel,

Have you tried the workaround for T-Mobile where you use your phone number @tmomail.net?

I created a screen shot below of the proper format. I just tested this with my own phone and was able to receive a notification.



Thanks,
Sam

Hello Eric, 

While I don't have a project Fi account I can test with, I was able to go onto google's site and find the email address they provide for sending texts via email. If you plug this into the notification email section on your extension, you should be able to receive notifications on your phone.

The format you would use in the email section would be as follows: 
10digitnumber@msg.fi.google.com

Example: if your number is 1231231234, you would enter 1231231234@msg.fi.google.com in the notification email section on ring central.

As I said I can't guarantee this will work, however it is the best bet for getting an unsupported carrier to have notifications.

Hopefully this helps!
