Peru: SMS Features and Restrictions


Sender ID:

Telfonica/Movistar (71606) - the Sender ID on all messages will generally changed to a local number to ensure delivery

Nextel (71607)  - generally sender is dynamic but some senders will be overwritten to ensure delivery

Claro (71610) is filtering alphanumeric and national numeric Sender ID. All SMS sent with those senderIDs will not be delivered. We suggest using numeric Sender ID with international number format to reduce the risk of being filtered.

Only messages in English and Latin characters are supported.

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