SMS Numbers Used by xMatters

Global Coverage

While this page summarizes in-country SMS codes from which xMatters sends messages where available, we can send SMS messages to virtually any country. OK, not North Korea - you've got us on that one - but almost everywhere else. Rest assured that even if we don't have an in-country code for a given location, with very few exceptions we'll still be able to send SMS messages there.

Benefits of in-country delivery

We're continually working with our SMS providers to add in-country numbers, as they have several key advantages:

  • Message recipients are less likely to assume that they're receiving spam from some nefarious, distant land (and will instead read their messages)
  • Since responses are local, recipients won't bear international response costs
  • Foreign carriers are less likely to spam filter messages coming through local codes
  • On occasion, carriers will change the response address if it comes from a foreign address, so messages sent from local numbers maintain their two-way capabilities

We believe this is what's best for our customers, so we'll continue to invest in the roll-out of additional in-country numbers. Also, some clients may have other codes assigned for security, reach, resiliency and other purposes.

Carrier number changes
We constantly work with carriers to ensure that the table below represents the numbers that they use, but carriers sometimes modify sender numbers as they route traffic across their network. As a best practice, we recommend that you advise your xMatters users of this possibility so that they don't block or ignore SMS messages from xMatters.

Primary & Secondary SMS Codes

Here are the primary and, where available, secondary SMS (long/short) codes that the xMatters services use when sending SMS messages.  All other countries not listed in the table use the primary number +447860028602 and secondary number +447624803074.

All countries support two-way messaging unless otherwise stated in the Notes field.

    Hi Rondo. Unfortunately, it’s not possible to change how the number used by our SMS service providers appears on users’ devices because there are regulations in place intended to prevent spoofing. The secondary numbers listed are used for backup if we experience an issue with our primary service provider.

    We also recommend using push notifications and our mobile apps, which are more reliable and robust than SMS. You can easily format mobile app push notifications to show the message sender, so it’s obvious who a message is from even before a user opens the message in the app.

    Hey Aris - Good question. Since we send from a local Philippine number, the cost to reply depends on your personal phone plan (and of course in many cases there will be no additional cost because SMS is part of your plan).

    We've gone live in Australia for xMatters for our organisation. We have a situation where multiple groups use the tool to send SMS notifications. Primary use is for Technology Incident Management (for Critical & High Incidents). But we have additional groups/teams using the tool for other business incidents. So everyone that receives the SMSs see the same Australia "Primary Number". Given that all SMSs are sent from the same primary mobile number, is there any way to  differentiate the number sent from different groups? Also, when is the "Secondary Number" used or come into play?
