iOS Device Settings for Spok Mobile

Use the guidance on this page to configure your iPhone for Spok Mobile.

NOTE: iOS 11 currently has a defect that causes apostrophes to appear as question marks in Spok Mobile messages composed on devices running iOS 11. Until Apple provides a fix for this, users can disable the Smart Punctuation feature on their personal device: Settings > General Keyboards > Smart Punctuation toggle OFF.
