Reply From Phone 2 - App 2 PAIRING

Optional In-App Subscription

Remote Reply from your 2nd phone

reply from second phone example

IMPORTANT: this PAIRING app (App 2 ) does not work on its own.

This PAIRING app (App 2) can only work with our main app (App 1), Auto Forward SMS For Android.

We highly recommend you install App 1 on Phone 1 first. After you install and open App 1, then tap REPLY FROM PHONE 2 - PAIRING SETUP and follow the easy instructions for how to get App 2 on Phone 2, plus PAIRING with your Phone 2.

On Phone 1, click here to download App 1 to your Phone 1.

How Reply From Phone 2 works...a scenario:

  • You have 2 Android phones.
  • Phone 1 is your work phone and Phone 2 is your personal phone.
  • You can respond to SMS sent to your work phone from your personal phone whilst PAIRED.
  • The sender will only see your reply as coming from your WORK phone.

It's like a remote reply, but the original sender does not know you are reading and responding to their text from your Phone 2 number. On Phone 1 (App 1 'work' phone), the SMS conversation will be in your phone's default messages app as normal, as the PAIRING function on App 2 simply mirrors Phone 1's SMS conversation while PAIRED.

NOTE: For security, after unPAIRING, the forwarded & archived messages will 'disappear' from Phone 2, but will reappear when PAIRED with Phone 1 again.

How Does It Work?

You need your 2 Android phones, App 1 installed on Phone 1 + App 2 PAIRING installed on Phone 2. And stable internet connection on both phones for this service to work.

When you purchase Auto Forward SMS for Android from Google Play, you have the option of installing App 2 PAIRING on your 2nd phone.

We highly recommend first purchasing and installing App 1 on your Phone 1.

You can purchase and install App 1 by clicking this link.

Then follow the instructions on Phone 1 in REPLY FROM PHONE 2 - PAIRING SETUP to setup PAIRING with Phone 2/App 2.

The simple main instructions are contained on both apps. But App 1 (main app) allows you to SMS the download link to your Phone 2.

You need to PAIR App 1/Phone 1 with App 2/Phone 2.

After PAIRING the apps on your phones, on Phone 1 (App 1), you can then switch FWD ALL INCOMING SMS to ON. Where it says: "When SMS arrives, forward to this number:" you can leave this field blank, because when the 2 phones are PAIRED, the message will show on Phone 2 (unless you also want to forward a plain SMS separately.).

Both phones must be PAIRED for remote reply conversation to work.

And you must have an internet connection for PAIRING and remote replying from Phone 2 to work.

This service is managed via your Google Play account via Phone 2/App 2. You can subscribe or unsubscribe anytime you wish.

Quick Q&A

Q: What phones will this work on?

Both phones need to be Android. Our apps do not work on iPhones nor Oppo phones.


Q: Does my phone need to use wifi or be connected to the internet for REPLY FROM PHONE 2 to work?

Yes, both apps need an internet connection for the PAIRING and remote reply service to work.


...but be careful with mobile data, especially if you are roaming and traveling, as your telco might charge a higher price for accessing mobile data. Please check your rates with your mobile provider. This has nothing to do with us.


Q: What happens if I buy a new phone?

The Reply From Phone 2 subscription is managed via your Google Play account. On your NEW phone, login to your Google Play account from your new phone, and your subscription will be restored.


Q: What happens if I cancel the Reply From Phone 2 subscription? Can I still forward from Phone 1 to Phone 2?

Yes. App 1 will continue to work on Phone 1 as normal and will still forward any incoming SMS tp Phone 2 (or any other phone) if you want it to. BUT you won't be able to reply 'remotely' from Phone 2 because PAIRING will not be available.


Q: Will the conversation also appear on Phone 1?

Yes. You will see the exchange on both phones. Great for backup copies!

Phone 2/App 2 has its own VIEW & REPLY TO FORWARDED MESSAGES screen with a SHARE function for backing up to your email or phone storage. Plus on Phone 1, the SMS conversation is always in your phone's default text messaging app (as it's a normal SMS).

After unPAIRING, the forwarded & archived messages will 'disappear' from phone 2, but will reappear when PAIRED with Phone 1 again. The messages are stored in secure Google servers.

Q: Will App 2 PAIRING on Phone 2 show MMS?

No. Unfortunately MMS will not work.

Q: Can I install on my partner's or children's phone to monitor their texts?

Absolutely NOT. Our apps are NOT spying apps.

Okay, so what do I do now?

On Phone 1, purchase App 1 from Google Play. You will find instructions on how to pair with Phone 2. If you already have App 1, just tap the button: REPLY FROM PHONE 2 - PAIRING SETUP.

So what's the price?

App 2 PAIRING is free to download. It will do nothing until the subscription and PAIRING are active. If you want to subscribe to Reply From Phone 2, this will be 50c-99c approx per month in your local currency. You can stop the subscription anytime you wish. This will not affect normal forwarding on Phone 1 (but you won't be able to PAIR with and reply from Phone 2 anymore if you cancel your subscription).

Any other costs I need to know about?

Your telephone and/or wifi provider may charge you for outbound text messages, as the app does use your phone's Messages app. If you are on a plan which includes free SMS, this is very cheap for you. But please be wary of your providers' terms of use. Also beware of roaming charges if you travel. This is out of our control, so check with your telephone company.
