International support for Alphanumeric Sender ID

  • by

This article reflects Freebulksmsonline’s current support capabilities for custom SMS sender IDs, or alphanumeric sender ID worldwide. Click the country’s name for guidelines on sending Programmable SMS messages to this locale (where available).

Notice: Some countries may require registration of the desired alphanumeric sender ID prior to sending messages from this ID. These countries are marked Pre-Registration Required in the table below. In pre-registration countries, delivery quality may be lower for messages sent using a standard SMS-capable Freebulksmsonline.com phone number, as carriers in these countries often impose carrier filtering on non-registered message traffic.
