Local and International Reach:

What is Local or International reach?

We can't guarantee that the inbound number can be reached from non-local phone numbers or from other SMS APIs and Short Codes. However, some do successfully receive inbound messages from abroad.

Where international says 'Likely', this means we are told the numbers have international reach, but the number provider has not confirmed the networks they have inbound reach from, hence we promote on a best efforts basis.

If you need to receive SMS in a country that isn't listed on any of the articles linked above, you can use numbers from one of the countries that has international (inbound) reach. This would require your customers to send an international SMS.
