Syria SMS Features and Restrictions

Sender ID

Alphanumeric or short code Sender IDs will be filtered by the operator. Therefore, Sender IDs are changed to random numeric and to "NXSMS" to minimize filtering and improve delivery.


Only OTT traffic is allowed to be terminated toward Syrian networks. Any spam, bulk, political, or suspicious messages are prohibited and the user's account will be subject to suspension.

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

Other Features or Restrictions

Delivery Receipts

Handset delivery receipts are supported.

Delivery Issues

Because of the overall situation in the country, terminating messages to Syria is challenging for all providers. Depending on your use case, you might consider a fall-back option of using Text-to-Speech.
