Purchasing numbers for these countries is a manual process that entails using the SMS Number Inventory feature to find the numbers you want, taking note of those numbers, and then sending them to us in an email along with required documentation.

After we receive your request, we will review it for accuracy and then submit it to our carriers for approval. This process can take 2–5 business days to complete. Once we complete the process, we notify you by email and you will see your numbers in the SMS Number Inventory. 

Note: If we discover that the SMS numbers you request are no longer available, we will contact you and help you find other SMS numbers.
