02 Ireland – No problems for SendMode customers

Hi,

Earlier this week 02 Ireland blocked alpha Sender IDs on all SS7 connections, this means all messages appear on the consumers handset with a mobile number instead of your brand name. As brand names are extremely important when sending text message marketing messages, this is a huge issues for SMS suppliers who are now filtered from using this sevrice on the 02 gateway. This confuses consumers and render your message meaningless in many instances.

If you are using one of our competitors and this has happended, it means thay they are using cheap and unreliable international routes to delivery your messages.  Sendmode have a direct connection and long term relationship with o2 which means that Sendmode has NOT been affected by thes filtering and continue to operate as normal.

Alphabetic SenderID functionality will only work with suppliers with a direct connection to 02.

We at SendMode have a direct connection fully featured connection with both alpha and numeric SenderIDs, to 02 Ireland at a very competitive blended rate for all Irish networks.

If you are experiencing issues with your supplier’s delivery to 02 Ireland, please contact us and we can have you switch and operational on our service in less than 30 minutes. If your SMS messages are time critical over the next days, we can help you get the message plus your sender ID ( also called Sender Name by some suppliers ) out to your customers. No disruption to your service and we offer the lowest rates in Ireland so not only a better quality service but also at a lower rate, saving you money.

We are available 24/7 at support@sendmode.com or on 01-685-4913. Please ask for Trevor or John.

Kind Regards,
John
