API Features

Text Message Length

U.S. SMS

U.S. Carriers are standardized and all text messages are 160 characters (including spaces) in length. When sending a text message to a recipient in the U.S. with more than 160 characters, the SMS Notify! API will automatically split the message into two or more messages for delivery.

Canadian SMS

Canadian Carriers vary from 136 to 160 characters (including spaces) in length. CDYNE sends to Canada the same way as the U.S. To ensure complete message delivery, CDYNE advises that your application only send messages to Canadian recipients in 136 character increments. If the message is longer than 136 characters, the best practice is to split the message on your application side at the 136 character mark to avoid data loss that may occur from Canadian Carriers that truncate anything over 136 or 140 characters.

PostBackURL

Know when your MT message has been sent or your application has received a MO or response message. CDYNE SMS Notify! API will automatically post information to a URL you specify each time an SMS has been sent or received.

DID System Keywords

SMS Notify! API will automatically respond to select keywords when receiving text messages with DIDs.

Short Code System Keywords

SMS Notify! API will automatically respond to select keywords when receiving text messages with short codes.

Short Code Incoming Keyword Management
