Iraq

Asiacel Iraq (41805) all senders are changed to a shortcode or a long number in order to ensure delivery. Please note that we do not currently expect handset DLRs for messages to this network.

Zain Iraq (41820) filters shortcode and alphanumeric senders. We suggest to use international format numeric sender to bypass Zain Iraq filtering. Avoid using senders starting with 46. Please note that we do not currently expect handset DLRs for messages to this network. Also please do not add parenthesis , "( " or ")" into the content since this will be filtered. 

Iraq Korek (41840) does not support alpha senderIDs. We advise you to use numeric senders to avoid this problem. All alpha senders will be overwritten but delivery is not guaranteed.

If messages are nevertheless sent with alphanumeric sender ID, there are routes to Iraqi networks where the sender ID will be automatically modified to a numeric string to bypass the above networks filtering, and ensure delivery.

 

Please note that we are using Adaptive Routing throughout Iraq to ensure minimal downtime. Therefore senders may deviate from the above as Iraq is historically quite an unstable market to send SMS.
