When we send or receive bulk SMS on our mobile, we always get Sender ID that begins with two Alpha characters prefixed to every and each bulk SMS message. What’s this and why can we get that? Well, TRAI has categorized in such some way to spot sent bulk SMS message and also the sender details. By this, an operator would simply understand to trace or determine the bulk SMS user.
Let us understand very well on this and grab the codes too, eh.
For example, we receive SMS from our bank, let us take ICICI, and after we receive then the sender id would be like this TD-ICICIB. So, here we are discussing on the primary 2 characters of the sender id that is TD. T as in Tata Teleservices, therefore this is often a telecommunication Operator Code and D as in Old Delhi, therefore this is often Regional Code.
Another example, Your mobile phone vibrates associated you see that you just have received an SMS in your inbox locution AM-MSGIND: Your account no. xxxx789 has been attributable with 5,000 credits.
Ever questioned what role will ‘AM-MSGIND’ play here? in fact, it’s the chosen Sender ID however what precisely it will and represent?
