Sri Lanka: SMS Features and Restrictions

Sender ID:

Numeric Sender ID as well as generic Alpha Sender IDs are not allowed towards Dialog (MCCMNC:41302). Registration of Alpha Sender IDs are possible to avoid your messages being filtered by the operator. Please contact your account manager or for more details if your SMS volume exceeds 10k per month.

Sender ID towards the rest of Sri Lanka networks are fully dynamic but subject to changes at operator sides.

We recommend sending messages with Alpha sender ID that reflect your brand name ( Use sender = {your brand} ) towards Sri Lanka. This is to prevent your messages from being filtered by the local operators due to sender ID being too generic or number senders are not allowed towards them.


There are no additional content restrictions beyond those in our Acceptable Use Policy

Other features/restrictions of note:

Delivery Receipts:
Handset delivery receipts are supported.
