I'm receiving calls regarding SMS from an aql 0844 number.
When a mobile user texts a landline, because landlines (largely) can't handle SMS, the SMS message is converted to voice and a number calls you and speaks out the message.
This is done in the UK by BT and also by ourselves, aql. We send the calls from one of the following numbers:
This is common practise and is how SMS are converted so they can be sent between the mobile networks and the fixed line (landline) networks.
If you are receiving such messages and wish to opt out, please contact us, or if you are already a customer of aql, you may raise a support request.
