“I Get Error 2916 While Trying to Send Bulk SMS”

  19 June 2015

You get the error 2916 response when you are sending messages with the mobile application or using the API service to send your bulk SMS. Here is the meaning of the error message and how to address it.

 

Error 2916 simply means “the sender ID you are trying to use for your bulk SMS is not allowed”.

Usually, spam related words used as sender IDs are not allowed by GSM operators. And the filtering system of the bulk SMS platform as integrated with the GSM operators’ will not allow your chosen sender ID to be used for the message.

Additionally, the sender ID been used might be a phone number, and there are reasons why you should not use phone numbers as sender IDs for your messages. This equally has to do with some GSM operators standards and regulations concerning that.
