  • Device Profile: The device profile, if available, is also included along with the delivery receipt and MO MMS message. System-wide database of last know device profile per phone number is maintained, updated whenever carrier database is queried or delivery receipt is received.
  • Fallback SMS: Fallback SMS is available thorough our XML API, if the rich media file size is larger than the device’s maximum file size, a fallback SMS will be sent. Also, also if the device doesn't support rich media content then a fallback SMS is sent. The customer can specify the default message text to be delivered to end users.
