Coverage, Feature and Quality
What features (dynamic sender ID, delivery reports, etc.) do your routes support?
Dynamic sender ID, delivery reports, concatenated messages, binary, flash, etc.
I read that you offered high quality and feature rich routes - what about other options?
We also offer routes to some destinations with reduced features. For example, we offer a fixed sender ID / originator service with the absence of delivery reports at much a comparatively much reduced rate, which is ideal for marketing initiatives where the response rate is a higher priority than the delivery rate.
I cannot find the operator(s) I need access to - what should I do?
The operator you require may not be listed for various reasons. For example, it may be listed with a different title (especially, following a merger / acquisition), the operator maybe a new entrant (we may be testing available routes but they are not yet live) or the operator has been grouped under one line such as "United States of America All GSM", which covers over 800 operators. In any case, please contact
with the operator you need to access to.
I am experiencing number portability issues, do you use HLR and how do you resolve this issue?
Yes, we are using HLR services in order to determinate home network.
We are using one carrier to route all traffic for destinations where MNP can cause problems.
How do I test the quality of your routes?
You can register for free test account and get free messaging credits to start testing the quality of our routes towards over 800 destination operators worldwide through SMS gateway application via SMPP or HTTP protocol, or by using our Web SMS application within Command Center.
I will be sending international characters - how do I test this?
You can register for free test account and get free messaging credits to start testing all international characters through our SMS gateway application via SMPP or HTTP API, or by using our Web SMS application - Command Center.
How quickly will my messages be delivered?
The average time taken is less than few seconds! However sometimes congestion in networks may cause an unavoidable delay.
How can I see detailed report about SMS message sent on the last days?
Each text message sent can be tracked, from submission to delivery, by viewing its unique Delivery Report. Log in to your account on Command Centre. Once you have logged into the account, select SMS Tools>>Delivery Reports. You can check the history of your sent messages, as well as searching and generating reports from specified dates, by using the filter option.
The Delivery Report displays details of the date and time of message submission, destination number, sender ID, delivery status, price and message ID of all sent messages.
I downloaded the SMS delivery report but there are some numbers that have "Pending" as the status. What does it mean?
Pending status means that message sent to recipient network is waiting on confirmation of final delivery status from end operator. (This frequently occurs in cases of unavailable/absent subscribers, where this status remains until the subscriber is available and successfully receives the message). For example, it means that the end user turned off the cell phone, subscriber may be in low signal area, both SIM and Phone memory are full etc.
I would like a service that allows me to receive messages at premium / non premium rates - do you provide this, short codes?
We offer mobile originated services, both which have a premium and non-premium charge to the mobile user. Please see 2 Way messaging.
I have been blocked to a destination operator by my existing provider - why does this happen and how will you mitigate the possibility of this happening with your service?
Your route could have been blocked for a variety of reasons such as the destination operator receiving spam from your provider (not necessarily originating from you) or the destination operator has requested an interworking agreement where fees are introduced for termination by your provider. TeleSign Mobile meticulously manages and monitors its routes for spam (this is filtered out automatically) and volumes to minimize the chance of such issues.
Why is my message rejected?
Many reasons exist for why a message could be rejected, including insufficient credits, incorrect profile settings, invalid numbers, no operator coverage, a required feature not supported and many more possible causes. For detail information you are welcomes to contact us via our technical support team. We will need accurate information, mobile number, date/time the message(s) were sent, the message text.
I'm unable to bind to your server - why?

Confirm your Billing info and continue to select the payment option.

Each delivery report provides details of the date and time of submission, destination number, sender ID, delivery status, price and message ID of all your sent messages.
I have status delivered but message hasn't reached the handset - how is that possible?
Yes, it's possible. For example some operators are sending successful delivery reports if they like to block some origins or destinations. However, it is a very rare situation. There is a great possibility that operator itself is blocking traffic and sending back false delivery reports, our kind advice would be to contact our support team for more details and further investigation.
Nobody from sales is answering, I need urgent credits - can you add in advance? (weekend usually)
10% Of the amount paid can be advanced into your TeleSign Mobile account once evidence of payment is received via fax or email (
What type of message encodings do you support?
We do support the following encodings with these appropriate values:
-GSM 7-bit (DCS=1)
-ISO-8859-1 (DCS=0 or 3)
-Unicode (UCS2) (DCS=8)
A list of characters supported by both GSM and ISO-8859-1 with appropriate values for each can be found on the following link The 7 bit default alphabet.
What is the validity period of messages sent?
Validity period of message may differ. It depends on the destination path and far-end SMSC that will actually deliver the message. Some of the operators have SMSC with a minimum validity period of 24 hours, while other have a maximum validity period of 72 hours. The minimum of 24 hours should be considered as the default value.
How long is an SMS valid before it gets status Undeliverable?
It may take up to 72h to declare message undeliverable, it depends on end SMSC - Network Operator.
How long do text messages stay live on your system?
Immediately after messages are received they are being routed through to the end operator. Once the operator respond with delivery report it is being immediately dispatched to the client.
Which special characters are supported?
All characters that are defined in GSM standards.
*Note that the delivery path might support some other characters, especially if they are some very rare ones.
Handset received empty or partial message?
Usually when a customer receives multi-part message, they might experience an issue where the handset is not capable of displaying whole messages in a logical manner, but rather it displays one part at a time, thus it might seems that a customer has received a partial message. Also if a handset is unable to comprehend specialy crafted message, it might not display the message payload, thus it will be shown as an empty message.
How many messages per second can I send?
It all depends on your needs. For example, usually you have the ability to send up to 100 msg/sec if you have a good quality broadband Internet connection.
Do you support Concatenated messages?
Yes, we support Concatenated messages (long messages). Concatenated messages can be composed as one, and are split up into smaller messages to send over the network. Maximum lengths vary, from about 300 characters to over 1,000, depending on the phone. (Nokia SMART phones allow for 1,000 characters)
Please note that concatenated messages are handset dependent.
When do I need to use HTTP to send messages?
Usually if a customer does not have need for large amount of SMS traffic, they would prefer using HTTP protocol over SMPP protocol.
I am trying to set up the SMS examples and I cannot find the libraries. I am looking for the RoutoTelecomSMS PHP class, where can I download it from?
We provide simple and secure HTTP/S SMS API. Documentation is available at http://www.telesignmobile.com/http-sms.pmx and you can use our ready-made SMS examples for PHP alongside with RoutoTelecomSMS.php class at http://www.telesignmobile.com/developer-solutions/sms-scripts.pmx
I am sending sms messages using HTTP API, however I receive an AUTH FAILED ERROR code and messages are not getting through. Could you please help?
Password for HTTP interface is different than password for Command Centre. To enable your account for HTTP sending or receiving capability you will need to create an HTTP password separately. Please login to Command Centre>>and go to Administration>>Interfaces and Passwords. Click on 'Activate' to obtain and activate HTTP password. Confirm the activation and HTTP password will be emailed to the primary contact email address of your account.
You can keep dynamic access when sending via HTTP, -it is not mandatory to have dedicated IP address for using HTTP service. However, once IP address is specified then the same IP address must be used with HTTP API service.
I need to activate new IP for HTTP sending. How can I do this?
Please log in to Command Centre and navigate to Administration>>Interface and Password. Within the IP Address table you are able to manage your IP addresses, edit, delete or add new one. Click on the button "Add New IP address" and specify new desired IP address for approval.
I have registered a new IP address for HTTP sending. It is marked for Activation. Could you please help me activating it?
Please contact our Support Team at
to check the status of the IP address.
When do I need to use SMPP to send messages?
SMPP is an industry standard designed to receive / transmit huge amounts of sms messages in short period of time. On the other hand, it needs some more technical experience to set up and maintain.
What SMPP commands you do support?
We support the following SMPP v3.4 commands:
These sets are the basic needs for sending and receiving text message. However, we do have plans to support some additional commands (like submit_multi_sm, etc).
How do I get delivery reports (SMPP or HTTP)?
In order to receiver delivery reports by using SMPP protocol, you must do two things:
- You must send messages with register_delivery flag set to 1
- You must be connected as a receiver or transceiver
In order to receive delivery reports by using HTTP protocol, you must do two things:
- You must send messages with delivery=1 flag set to 1
- You must provide us with the absolute URI of Your CGI script to which our system will send delivery reports once we receive them.
We are not receiving delivery reports?
This could be returned for a number of reasons; the most common causes for non-delivery of an SMS are listed below:
The mobile phone was out of network reach for a prolonged period of time.
The handset message inbox was full and could not receive any new messages.
The mobile phone was switched off and the message has expired.
The number is invalid or is no longer in use.
How do i send 160 characters or unicode SMS?
-Text message GSM 7-bit max length per message: 160
-Text message ASCII max length per message: 140
-Unicode messages max length per message: 70
If you'd like to send message which are longer than these values, you must format them as concatenated, meaning they must be formatted with properly defined UDH header.
Each Unicode message can be 70 characters in length. Should your message exceeds this length it will have to be concatenated into 63 characters per message.
Why some messages are delivered multiple times?
This happens in very rare circumstances. This may occur when the subscriber is in roaming, or in a very low signal belt. If you or you customer continue to face the same problem you can contact our technical support team.
Where do I enter the URL to receive delivery receipts via HTTP interface?
URL for delivery reports can be found at Command Centre. Please login to your account and go to: Connectivity > Connection Parameters, and you also have the ability to test if the URL works as expected.

Why are my messages not being delivered? Do you cover the operator?
Many reasons exist why your message can not be delivered, including insufficient credits, incorrect profile settings, invalid numbers, no operator coverage, a required feature not supported and many more possible causes. If you need more information you are welcomes to contact us via our technical support team. We will need accurate information, for instance the message ID, mobile number, date/time the message(s) was sent, the message text etc.
Why do I receive status delivered even though the message never reached the phone?
There is a great possibility that operator itself is blocking traffic and sending back false delivery reports. Please contact our support team for more details and further investigation.
How fast can you resolve an issue?
Our dedicated, highly skilled Technical Support Team are trained to understand your issues and requirements so we can quickly give you the most effective resolution and get your search solutions back to peak efficiency.
Do you charge messages with 'no status'?
Yes we do. We charge based on submission instead of delivery. This means that for example, if the mobile user to which you are sending has their phone switched off, you will be charged. This is because we would have been charged to terminate the message to the destination operator.
Is it possible to send unicode sender?
It all depends of the delivery path, or route used.
How do i set SMPP parameters for sender, destination and type of message?
You can set SMPP parameters via TON/NPI and DCS/ESM parameters.

How do I get prices?
Prices and special offers are shown on the Pricing and Coverage page of our Web site.
I can get a lower price than what I see on your Web site else - what can you do about this?
indicating the destination operator(s) concerned, the competitor / target price(s) and your volume commitment per destination operator. This information will be sent to the trading floor and we will inform you of any alternative price.
How long are the prices valid for?
We will notify you of any prices changes with 3 banking days notice
How am I notified of price increases?
We will notify you by email.
Why do prices sometimes increase?
Prices increase when our cost price for the current route in use to a destination operator is increased or if an alternative high priced route is used if the former is no longer available.
How much does it cost to have a dedicated number?
There is no cost to set up the service and lease the number. However, a minimum prepayment is required (see Pricing and Coverage) for mobile terminated messages and incoming messages from some certain operations will be charged.
What is the difference between Long Numbers and the REPLY service?
Long Numbers, also commonly referred to as a inbound / virtual mobile numbers enabling you to receive messages in addition to sending messages through an API connection on our SMS Gateway or into the Web SMS application - Command Center. Virtual Mobile Numbers are assigned and provisioned by mobile operators to TeleSign Mobile specifically for the purpose of receiving messages from subscribers both within the same country and internationally (check receiving-coverage with us if the latter is needed). Long Numbers can typically (not always) be more rapidly provisioned than dedicated short codes, cost less and are not governed by code local regulatory bodies.
Whilst Long Numbers are less memorable than short codes, they are perfect for receiving replies to mobile terminated / bulk marketing messages where the Long Number is placed in the dynamically specifiable sender ID / originator field of such messages. The subscriber simply hits reply on their phone (and therefore does not actually need to remember the Long Number) and messages will be sent / forwarded as follows – from the subscriber's handset to the operator to which they subscribe, then to the operator that has assigned the Long Number, then to TeleSign Mobile's SMS Gateway, and finally to the customer's application(s) via an API connection or to the Web SMS application - Command Center when the Receive messages button is pressed. As the title of the service suggests, the Reply Service is an enabler for our customers to receive reply messages from subscribers. Specifically, the Reply Service allows mobile terminated messages sent by end users through our SMS Gateway to be replied to in the following scenarios:
1). Where the subscriber who is receiving a message (sent by you through our SMS Gateway) on a mobile number / phone that is subscribed to a mobile operator that does not have direct agreement / relationship to send messages back (reply) to the operator from which the message originated.
2). Where the end user is using a desktop / Web application with a mobile number assigned to these.
The Reply Service utilizes Long Numbers couple with a unique algorithm-based process that dynamically inserts Long Numbers into the sender ID field of the messages, which is what the recipient of messages will reply back. When our SMS Gateway receives a reply message, it will be sent back to you via the API.
Which Virtual Mobile Number do provide?
Contact Us to find out the latest list of countries where we have local Virtual Mobile Numbers, their fees and where messages can be received from.
What types of traffic are your routes suitable for?
TeleSign Mobile focuses on high quality termination – that means that we aim to ensure that throughput, delivery speed, delivery rate* and features is carrier grade. *Delivery rate assumes all numbers are valid and are sent to destinations defined by prefixes that are covered on your account with us.
Do I get charged for undelivered messages?
Yes you do get charged for undelivered messages because this maybe as a result of phones is being switched off, in roaming where SMS cannot be forwarded from the home operator or other reasons that TeleSign Mobile and its providers are not able to control.
Is the "price" column in SMS Delivery Report in Euro or USD?
Price column in SMS Delivery Report displays prices in Euro. Your TeleSign Mobile account works in Euros only and therefore, all messages are charged / billed to your TeleSign Mobile account in Euros only.
With my current provider I spend a number of credits per destination - what is your charging mode
