Before you start with the Android tutorials, please make sure that the steps below has been taken:
Before starting, first make sure you have a Sinch account. You can create an account with free credits using the Sinch Dashboard to start sending messages in minutes.
Information about trial mode limitations
When your account is in trial mode (such as when you've just created it), sending messages has the following limitations:
- The body of each message will be replaced by a generic message to prevent malicious uses of our API.
- Your messages will also be sent from a random phone number and the
sendervalue will be ignored (although the API still requires a value so you must provide some value for the sender).
To be able to use the Sinch SDK a new application can be created by clicking Apps --> Create new app. Once the app is created the app key and secret will be visible in the dashboard. Save them, they will be used in the tutorials.
