Portugal SMS Features and Restrictions

Sender ID

Portuguese carriers do not allow Short Code Sender IDs. It is recommended to use numeric Senders in International format or alphanumeric Sender IDs for all traffic to Portugal to bypass this blocking.

Operators filter Russian numeric Sender IDs throughout Portugal. It is not recommended to use any Russian Sender IDs into Portugal, as messages are likely to be filtered.

Blocked Sender IDs

The Sender IDs listed below are blocked locally, therefore any messages sent using these Sender IDs will be blocked. If you have a valid contract to use any of the Sender IDs listed below, submit a Support request and we will work with our suppliers to assist you.
