For some time now we have had to cope with limitations imposed by the Globacom network on the delivery of certain messages. This specifically had to do with SMS that contain numbers in the message body or sender name.
We know the purpose for sending bulk SMS is so you can send messages to people easily at the click of a button at any time or place. Seeing this we took the bold step and put our heads to work to provide a solution to this problem.
Now, we are excited to tell you that you can send messages to GLO with numbers in the message. We have added an option to the compose SMS page that will automatically reformat any set of numbers in your message if you need to send to GLO.
You will find this new option right under the message box after you compose your message. It reads "Mask numbers in message (to bypass GLO filters)".
Once this options is checked, all numbers in your message will be converted to a format that is acceptable on the GLO network and you would get better delivery rates.
