How to format phone numbers?

Correctly formatted international mobile phone number:

  • starts with a country code of the country that you want your SMS to be delivered to;
  • is followed by a mobile phone number itself.

Unified number format includes essential details for routing your SMS and delivering the message to your customer in the particular continent and country.

We suggest to make sure, that all the numbers contain only digits, there are no spaces or other punctuation, as well as country codes are included and phone numbers are valid. Messente supports importing mobile phone numbers with and without plus sign before the country code and checks format validity (including minimum length, character set etc.) while importing contacts.

After importing phone numbers in a “Contacts” group, Messente will also show you country-based statistics (as in the example picture above), thus you can double check if numbers were formatted correctly and were marked under the right country.

Good luck and keep texting!
