    How to Test Your Twilio App from India Using Twilio Dev Phone Test Your Twilio App from India with Dev Phone

    There are few things more frustrating than sending a test message or call to your application and not getting through – especially if you check the Twilio logs and see that your call or message never reached the number. If you’re a developer in India, your development process might be running up against some special telephony restrictions.

    It is important to understand India’s messaging limitations before you consider developing an app to send SMS to Indian mobile devices. However, if you just need to test an application that is being developed for deployment in other countries, the Twilio Dev Phone is a great solution.

    Limitations of Twilio SMS to Indian mobile devices

    When sending messages to India from Twilio, your Twilio phone number won’t appear as the sender of the message: the sender ID will be changed by the carrier before your SMS messages are delivered to end users. Usually …

    Identify Phone Number Line Type with Twilio Lookup to Alert Customers over SMS or Voice Lookup Line Type Hero

    Although landlines have been decreasing in popularity with the rise of mobile phones, some households continue to use them as a primary means of contact. According to the National Center for Health Statistics, 10.4% of adults aged 65 and older have a landline alone without mobile service. This demographic is important to account for when sending critical alerts and time-sensitive notifications to customers.

    In this tutorial, we are going to build a demo that checks an end user’s phone number type and sends an instant alert as a voice call or SMS depending on whether the device is a landline or mobile. You can build this in the Twilio console or programmatically. We’ll use the console in this blog post.

    Prerequisites

    What we will build

    Configure a Proxy Number with Delivery Instructions using No Code Configure a Proxy Number with Delivery Instructions using No Code

    Keeping personal information private is as important as ever, since information thievery and unwanted contact (content warning: harassment, sexual harassment) have become more common. When ordering food online, however, keeping your information private can be difficult.

    For example, your driver may need to contact you regarding changes to your order or if they need help getting directions to your door. Instead of giving out your personal number to the delivery app, why not give a proxy number that can provide all that information instead?

    In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to configure a proxy number that will provide delivery instructions with Twilio’s no-code solution, Twilio Studio! You’ll be serving up a menu that delivery drivers can interact with to get a gate code, directions to your place, and to call you (via a proxy number) in case there’s a change to your order.

    Airtable is a great tool for prototyping applications that require a database. However, when using multiple API’s in an application, it can get complicated and tricky to juggle all the functions and parameters from different services.

Let’s get started!

    Prerequisites
