SMS messages sent with Programmable Messaging, Verify, and Authy are priced per message segment. Messages sent from with the following locales may be split into multiple message segments: pt, pt_BR, cs, el. Learn more about how to limit message segments in our developer best practices.

Here's a basic select implementation in JavaScript:

We support the format country-region as described in IETF's BPC 47 for 36 languages passed via the locale parameter. If no locale is given, we use a default language based on the country code of the telephone number provided. Depending on the country, this will either be the official language of that country or English. If an unsupported locale is given, a 404 error will be returned. We recommend that you retry the request without the locale parameter to implement fallback to a default language or english.
