SMS Test

Verify SMS routes are delivering to the mobile networks you need to reach.

Verify SMS routes are delivering to the mobile networks you need to reach. Test to see if the destination network is reachable via your chosen routes, if messages are being modified, and delivery latency.

Use SMS Test to test delivery to mobiles on the networks that you, and your customers, need to reach. Verify that your suppliers - whether they are SMS gateways or SMSCs - are able to deliver SMS messages. The service shows the source address, Service Center Timestamp (SCTS), and SMS PDU for test messages that are successfully delivered. Also use the service to confirm if messages are modified prior to delivery.

Use service

The SMS Test service uses mobile numbers from SMS testing providers. The mobile numbers are available for testing mobile networks around the world. To test delivery to a particular mobile network, send a message to the mobile number via your chosen route and containing the issued "test ID" at the start of the message. When the message is delivered, we will send you an email with details about the message that was received by the mobile number.

Select a network from the list below, and then click Generate Test. You will then be given a mobile number (belonging to that network) to send your message to and the test ID to include at the start of your message.

You must be logged-in to use this service. On successful delivery of your message to the test mobile number an email will be sent to your address with the results of the test.
