Due to recent changes implemented by the local operators and networks, all non-registered sender IDs will officially be rejected. Any 'successful' delivery is down to our platform providing the best-effort delivery for any non-registered messages.
If you'd like to register a name for traffic to UAE, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your preferred sender ID, a sample message and some additional information about the (business) application for which you want to send these messages.
In line with local regulations, promotional traffic should include information on how to opt-out. All promotional SMS must include the sentence "To stop receiving “b senderID" to 7726". Messages without this content will be blocked by local operators.
