How do Nexmo virtual numbers with SMS capability work with the Messages and Dispatch APIs?

Question

  • How does inbound SMS with Nexmo Virtual numbers work on the Messages API? 
  • How does outbound SMS with Nexmo Virtual numbers work on the Messages API? 
  • Where do my SMS inbound callbacks get sent with the Messages API? 

Answer

Unfortunately, we don't currently support inbound SMS to Nexmo virtual numbers via the webhooks in Nexmo Applications. To be clear, your status and inbound callbacks for your SMS Nexmo virtual number will not be sent to the webhooks specified in the Inbound URL and Status URL section of your Nexmo Application. These callbacks will be sent to webhook set up directly onto the Virtual number (you can set this here https://dashboard.nexmo.com/your-numbers). 

However, outbound SMS works as expected.
