As one of the main players in the SMS market in Malaysia, there are few items we should keep in mind before sending bulk SMS:

Can we use Alphanumeric sender ID in Malaysia?

  • Alpha Sender ID does not exist in Malaysia. All Sender will be converted into short code to ensure delivery.

Is the DR Reliable?

  • Delivery reports are network receipts and not handset DR.

Is concatenated SMS supported in Malaysia?

  • DiGi does not support concatenated long messages. Long messages will be split into parts and we cannot guarantee arrival sequence.
  • All other main telco in Malaysia can support concatenated long messages.

Any other special features that I should be aware of?

  • Please take note that all traffic will be appended with "RM0.00 " or "RM0 " at the beginning of the SMS so that end-users know that they will not be charged for this message.
  • Funny characters like ¡¤§¿ÄÅÆÇÉÑÖØÜßàäåæèéìñòöøùüΓΔΘΛΞΠΣΦΨΩ are not allowed. Kindly test before sending.
  • Malaysia is one of the country that has heavy filtering and monitoring on A2P SMS. Any fraudulent SMS found will be penalized, so please ensure all content are legitimate.
  • All Gambling, Political, Adult Contents are strictly prohibited.
  • BRAND NAME must be included in the message content while sending.

Please be informed that Malaysian operators have tightened the rules and penalties on content handling as below:- 

Content Handling

• Compulsory to include recognised brand/company/identity name in the message content to ensure proper delivery and avoid retroactive billing.

• SMS with no brand may be considered as International traffic and charged at higher rate.

International Brand Traffic

• Penalties (which are imposed by the operator) will be charged in the case of continuous contravention of this prohibition.




With this regard, kindly be advised that all SMS to the aforementioned networks must include company name/brand/identity in message content with immediate effect, or else penalties imposed by the operators will be passed on to respective parties. In addition to that, please be reminded that International traffic are not allowed through the 6-series short code solution.
