Carriers in Romania filter heavily non direct routes and impose high termination fees. As a result, current alternatives in the market have low delivery ratio and are expensive.
Nexmo is connected directly with Cosmote and for this network we can delivery Alpha and Numeric Sender IDs. We send Vodafone messages through another Vodafone entity and again can pass Alpha and Numeric Sender IDs
Orange requires all traffic to be submitted through a shortcode. All messages to Orange subscribers will have the Sender ID changed to '1756'
Note that anti-spam measures in local direct connections to Romania Networks do not permit sending duplicated SMS (same source AND destination AND content) within 5mins. This does not apply to parts of the same concatenated SMS and concatenated messages are delivered.
In addition local carriers don’t allow person to person traffic. Only pure A2P traffic is allowed, for example: marketing campaigns, promotions, banking and financial traffic, authentication traffic, different service alerts. Orange requires that customers insert identification information in the body of the message, such as a valid email address, website or contact phone number.
Please note, Romania SMS+Voice numbers do not have 2-way reach to Digi Mobil.
