Twilio and texting was broken due to software changes. To fix this problem, you will need to make sure your booth is on update 2.4.77 or later. Make sure to check out this article before you update to the latest version as you may push the booth into trial mode and it will not be able to be used!
If the booth is put into trial mode, you will need to reach out to Social Booth (the developers of the software). You can reach out to them here: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are on an update before 2.4.77, you will get this error found here.
Please refer to the following guide created by the manufacturers of Social Booth, the software we utilize in each and every photobooth! This explanation can be found at their support website also!

- Send via MMS
Click to allow users to receive their photo directly in their messaging. They will receive both the photo and a link to their photo. You will need a MMS enabled number from Twilio.

Prepend Country Code
If you are outside of the US Twillio requires you to use your country code. Since most users won't be used to adding this to their phone #s, you can enter it here and each SMS message will have the country code automatically added to it.
