Australia : SMS Features and Restrictions

Australia is an extremely complex SMS market and numerous filters are in place. SS7 networks are gradually all being shut down and a stable, direct connection is essential to ensure SMS delivery. 

We are using fully featured connections therefore dynamic Sender ID, concatenated SMS and delivery to ported numbers are supported.

Sender ID:

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

Content:

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

 

Other features/restrictions of note:

Delivery Receipts:
Telstra Australia (50501): delivery receipts are network-only receipts.

For all other networks, standard handset delivery receipts are to be expected.
