Kuwait: SMS Features and Restrictions

We are using Adaptive Routing technology in Kuwait so your message could be set over one of several routes we have, depending on which one is currently the best quality.

Sender ID:

All networks in Kuwait are now filtering messages. In order to bypass filtering, any numeric sender IDs will be changed to a "Vonage". Generic sender IDs are likely to be rejected by the operators, therefore you should use your brand name to send. If you have high volumes of traffic, your Sender ID may be registered with the networks. Please contact your account manager for more information.


Due to operator restrictions in Kuwait, marketing traffic is not permitted and likely to be blocked. There are no additional content restrictions beyond those in our Acceptable Use Policy

Other features/restrictions of note:

Delivery Receipts:
DLRs are unlikely to be consistent, most of them will be missing as many carriers in Kuwait do not support handset DLRs.
