In Brazil, the limit is 157. India Telecom regulations prohibit promotional messages from being delivered from 9PM - 9AM. From: 33 1 43 54 22 66 To: 33 6 78 90 12 34 Envover: Bonjour! From: NX SC 1223 To: 33 6 78 90 12 34 Envover: Bonjour! Nexmo adapts the delivery method, automatically switching out the phone number with a ‘pre-approved’ delivery code With local understanding of French SMS regulations, we can guarantee the message gets delivered. Carrier Restriction Brazil If application sends communication based on the 160 standard, message will get truncated for Brazil recipients, altering intent. Nexmo recognizes the potential delivery failure and modifies the communication to fit as intended. From: LM-012345 Thank You. Your order has shipped! Don’t forget about special deals this summer!
