Destination number formatting:
As of November 22nd 2014, phone numbers have shifted from 8 to 9 digits in Cameroon. All GSM numbers (MTN, Orange, Nexttel) are now preceded by the number "6". So for example (237) 99246025 becomes (237) 699246025.
This means that all SMS-MT sent to the operators Orange and MTN must contain recipients numbers of 12 digits starting with 2376. All SMS-MT sent containing destination numbers of 11 digits are rejected and cannot be sent to operators.
