Great News!! DND Bypass Feature Now Allows Choice SenderID

Dear valued customers,

Some time ago, we announced that we were introducing a new feature on our platform that will enable you to send bulk SMS messages to recipients whose numbers have been placed on Do-Not-Disturb. This feature was aptly called the DND bypass feature and was usually implemented by automatically delivering with rUPDATE as the sender ID.

Well, we are happy to announce today that our system now allows choice of sender ID on the Do-Not-Disturb (DND) bypass feature. This development was conceived after wide consultations regarding the DND issue, we finally made some very important updates to our platform so as to improve and provide the best quality services to our loyal customers.

With this new update, those recipients whose numbers have been placed on DND, thus disallowing you from getting your bulk SMS messages across to them, can now receive the bulk SMS messages without “rUPDATE” appearing as the sender ID on their phones.

Simply check-in the box ( Send to DND numbers (2 Credits) ) on your compose SMS/compose bulk SMS menu, input your desired sender ID into the space provided for it, compose your bulk SMS message, enter the recipient numbers in the appropriate order and hit the send button. Your bulk SMS message will be delivered to the entire numbers on your list with your desired sender ID intact.

We hope that this new information will prove very useful. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us if you have any questions. We would be very glad to hear from you.

Thank you for choosing SMSlive247!

    1. Hello Johnson,

      Yes it works with API.

      You need to append DND_BYPASS with the sender.

      Replace . "&sender=" . UrlEncode($sender) with . "&sender=" . UrlEncode($sender) ."DND_BYPASS";

      Test with a DND number and let me know the result.
