Syria: SMS Features and Restrictions

Sender ID:

Alphanumeric or short code Sender IDs will be filtered by the operator. We are therefore changing the Sender ID to a random numeric and to "NXSMS" in order to minimise this filtering and improve delivery.

Content:

Only OTT traffic will be allowed to be terminated toward Syria networks commencing on 20th of April 2018.

Any SPAM, bulk, political, and suspicious messages is prohibited and client account will be subject to suspension.

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.

Delivery issues:

Because of the overall situation in the country, terminating messages to Syria is challenging for all providers and we will continue to monitor the situation and make changes where appropriate. Depending on your use case, you might consider a fall back option of using Text to Speech.
