Do U.S. short codes support Puerto Rico mobile networks?

Question:

Do U.S shared shortcodes support sending SMS to Puerto Rico?

Can I send messages to Puerto Rico with my dedicated shortcode?

Answer:

US Shortcodes will reach AT&T Puerto Rico, T-Mobile Puerto Rico and Sprint Puerto Rico but the US shortcodes do not reach OpenMobile and Claro.

For customers using a dedicated short code trying to reach Puerto Rico users, if you receive an error code 12 (destination unreachable), you can build your own logic to retry using a US SMS enabled Toll Free Number or Long Virtual Number.

For customers using a Nexmo shared short code, Nexmo will automatically change the sender ID to a Long Virtual Number or US SMS enabled toll free number.
