JMP augments the commands available at Jabber ID and will run commands to configure your account. In a client with a command UI such as Gajim or Movim you may be able to select "Execute Command" or "Actions" on this contact to get a clickable menu. Otherwise you can chat with it as a chat bot. If you're familiar with command line prompts, it works in a similar way. Below are commands the JMP bot understands.

Some commands will display a sub-menu with several numbered options, in which case, you can reply with the number of your selection. Sub-menu's often show the current value of a setting in brackets. You can leave a setting at it's current value by typing 'next'. You can return to the main manu by typing 'cancel' at any time.

You can use any unique prefix for any of these commands. For example, instead of info you may send simply i. Commands are case-insensitive.

You can control how many dollars of overage you can use before JMP prompts for your consent. The default is $0, but you can set this to a larger dollar amount (if, for example, you usually use more voice minutes and don't want to be bothered with the prompt so early).
