USSD Messaging

Important USSD Service Announcement

Having trialled USSD with a number of clients, and tested global coverage, user response rate and overall usability of USSD in different markets, we have decided not to release USSD access to other accounts.

Global coverage by mobile networks proved to be inconsistent and the response rate from recipients were consistently low when compared to SMS.

We recommend using normal SMS, and for two-way / inbound SMS to use SMS Virtual Numbers, Physical SIM or Short Codes.
