Messages can traverse any of 1,800 mobile carriers, each with varying levels of dependability. Twilio leaves nothing to chance, rigorously evaluating carriers to rule out SIM farms and carrier filtering. A unique feedback API is then used to actively monitor quality and adjust routes.
There's a difference between delivering a message and properly delivering the content of that message. Twilio automatically transcodes pictures, encodes special characters and assembles long messages to meet ever-changing carrier specs.
Choosing the phone number to send messages from is the most critical part of building a messaging app. Twilio automatically picks the best phone number so that messages you send are never throttled and your users always receive messages from a familiar number.
Phone numbers with prefixes that indicate geography
5-6 digit phone numbers that can send and receive messages with mobile phones

Files transferred via MMS are stored until an HTTP DELETE is requested. Learn more
