Bulk SMS Service Advisory | Introducing Status Code 409 for Promotional Sender IDs in Nigeria

Dear Valued Client,

We are writing to notify you that we have introduced the Status Code 409 that you may encounter. If you receive this code, it indicates that your Sender ID in Nigeria has been flagged as Promotional.

This is a result of the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) rule which prohibits the broadcast of promotional/marketing SMS messages between 8:00 PM - 8:00 AM. It's important to emphasize that this restriction does not apply to transactional, corporate, or banking messages.

We appreciate your ongoing support and remain committed to providing you with excellent service.

Sincerely, Africa's Talking.
