I need to send an automatic response to sms I receive via google voice to inform of a new number
0
I have a google voice number that I am going to replace with a new number. I'd like to be able to send automatic replies to people texting me informing them that the number is going to be changed to a new number. Is there a way to do that automatically, via google voice or via forwarded emails as SMS come in?
I cannot find a way to do it on google voice. It would have to be like a vacation autoresponder, but only for SMS and texts, not all emails. Like the old phone lines used to have, where it would say "this number is disconnected, the new number is #####" 
Thanks for any help.

Hi David Giangrande Sr., welcome to the Google Voice community forum!
 
Google Voice does not have this functionality.  In fact, sending any type of automated message through Google Voice would be a violation of it's Terms of Service.
 
Hope this answers your question.

I am also having this problem.  I understand that Google voice does not want this system to be used for Spam and follow that rule.  But not being able to send an auto reply makes your product not useful.  People feel they can text any hour day or night and without an autoresponse option, an alternate product may be more user friendly.
