The From Phone Number is the 10 digit phone number that your contacts see on their phone when you send a text using Wizard Phone.

Wizard Phone can provide a phone number in your local area code.

  • Wizard Phone offers a long code or a 10 digit phone number not a short code which is a 5 or 6 digit number. Contact us to learn more.

Phone List

The phone list file can be in many popular file formats like Microsoft Excel, CSV or TXT.

The phone number format can be any of the following.


Your phone list may also include your contact's first name and last name, but it is not required.

You may have multiple groups in your account.

It is also easy to add, edit and delete contacts in your Wizard Phone account.


It's very easy to create your text message in your Wizard Phone account.

You can include links in your text message. A single text message is 160 characters. But, sometimes, you need to send a longer message. No problem. You can send a text message up to 480 characters in length.


Once you are happy with your message, we recommend sending a test message to a handful of phone numbers.

This can help identify any accidental spellllling mistakes.

When you are ready to send your message to your entire group, simply send it now or set a date and time in the future.

Call Report

The text reports are available in real-time in your account.

At the end of your call broadcast, you will receive a call broadcast report PDF file via email to one or more email addresses.

The text broadcast report PDF contains several columns of data for each phone number dialed including Date, Time, Text Disposition like "Delivered" and "Undelivered".

Will my contact lists be sold?

We will never share any of your information with anybody.

How many calling lists can I have?

We don’t limit the number of contact lists you may have.

How soon can I get started?

It only takes a few minutes. Sign up for a new account, and we will send you an email with login instructions. Then, upload your list using an Excel spreadsheet or CSV file. Send your first voice, text, or email message.

Do you charge for uncompleted calls?

No. There is no charge for busy, unanswered, or non-working numbers.

What number is the Caller ID?

Your choice. It can be your number, the number of your organization, or one of Wizard Phones for various groups, such as Church Calling, VFW Post, American Legion, Masonic Lodge, Shrine Club, and School Calling. The default Caller ID is Wizard Phone.

During what hours can I send voice messages?

The default times are 8:00 am until 10:00 pm, your local time. At your request, we will adjust these times to your preference.

Are there any start-up fees, maintenance fees, or inactivity charges?

No. There are only usage charges.

What if someone doesn’t want to receive my messages?

Your account contains a Blocked list. Wizard Phone will block all attempts to send phone, email, or SMS (text) messages to those listed.

How do I send a message?

To send a voice message, dial our toll-free number from any telephone. Follow the prompts to record and send your message immediately. Wizard Phone also offers a text-to-speech feature where you type your message and choose to have it converted to a male or female voice. If you recorded a message locally on your computer or smartphone, you could upload and use that audio file.

Type it, select the list, and click the send button to send a text message. Do the same to send an email message.

What happens when a call is unanswered?

Wizard Phone will listen for the beep of an answering machine or voicemail and deliver your message.

How will I know the results of my group message?

Two ways. Wizard Phone will send an email with a detailed report attached in PDF format so you can view and print it. The same information is in your account. The reports provide all the information you will need.

Anything I might not think to ask?

We send lots of voice messages. Over time, we have added features to this service to make it more effective. We have a free option for you to send your voice message audio file as an email attachment at the same time. The body of that email will display that person’s phone number that you have on file and ask if it’s correct. If not, the note asks for an email reply with the correct information. You might appreciate how many corrections you will receive.

Every voice message we send gives a toll-free number to call to hear the recording again. So instead of calls coming to you, their leader, they will come to Wizard Phone’s message replay line. This service is also free.

How long can my voice messages be?

We don’t set an official limit, but two minutes or less should be your goal. Answering machines and voicemail don’t allow recordings longer than two minutes—generally, the shorter your recording, the more effective your message.
