Romania SMS Features and Restrictions

Sender ID

Cosmote: Can deliver alpha and numeric Sender IDs.

Orange: Numeric senders can be supported if you are using a local Vonage long virtual number (LVN), as long as the SMS is sent with the CLI of the LVN, otherwise, the Sender ID will be modified to short code to ensure delivery. Alpha Sender IDs will be modified to short code to ensure delivery.

Vodafone: Alpha sender IDs must be registered to ensure delivery. Any unregistered alpha sender IDs will be modified to short code to ensure delivery. All registered sender IDs need to be case-sensitive too, so if variations of the same sender ID are needed, then they will all need to be registered. Register your brand sender IDs by contacting your account manager or submitting a support request. Short codes, as well as long numbers, will also be blocked by the operator.


Spam Filters

Anti-spam measures in local direct connections to Romania networks do not permit sending duplicate SMS (same source AND destination AND content) within five minutes. This does not apply to parts of the same concatenated SMS.


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.
