How it works
1. You / your application sends messages to our servers for delivery.
2. Our servers communicate with the direct carrier connections.
3. Using randomly allocated virtual numbers your message is delivered to the recipients handset.
4. If you are using our dedicated US or Canada virtual number service, the process works in reverse with inbound (MO) text messages returned to you by your chosen method (HTTP, SMPP or SMTP (email) ) via your dedicated number (not random).
Please contact us for further information.
The following are not supported by the US & Canada service:
- Alpha-numeric source addresses
- Multi-part messages (concatenated)
- Binary messages
- Unicode messages
- Full delivery receipts
- Marketing campaigns
- Mobile content delivery
If you require any of the above features a dedicated short code may be required.
Special configuration / a dedicated account may be required for use of this specific service, please contact us to discuss your requirements.
If you are using the dedicated service with your own dedicated virtual number, please note that each virtual number has a daily maximum outbound quota of 500 SMS and a maximum throughput of 1 SMS per second.
