UK (United Kingdom): SMS Features and Restrictions

The connections we use to the UK are fully featured including handset delivery receipts, dynamic sender ID and delivery to ported numbers.

Note that UK routes do not include Jersey or Guernsey. Routes to Jersey and Guernsey are also high quality, but may not be fully featured, and numbers which are identified as Premium will be dropped (there are typically higher levels of Premium numbers in these markets than normal).

Sender ID:

Fully dynamic*.

*NB: We strongly advise to avoid using Numeric Senders with international (non-UK) LVNs as they may be blocked from EE network.


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