Assigning country to contacts

You are here:

I have my contact numbers in national format only.

If you’re uploading your contacts to address book or a campaign via CSV/Excel or vCard, you need to select a country (therefore a prefix) where your contacts are situated. It is because we need to know where to send your messages to.

Gretor SMS automatically adds a prefix (e.g. +44) according to your selected country, to all numbers in national format (e.g. 01632 960850), resulting in +44 1632 960850.

I have my contact numbers in both national and international formats.

If you’re uploading your contacts to address book or a campaign via CSV/Excel or vCard, you need to select a country (therefore a prefix) where your contacts are situated. It is because we need to know where to send your messages to.

You might have a mix of both nationally and internationally formatted numbers in your file with contacts. In this case, Gretor SMS will automatically add a prefix (e.g. +44) to nationally formatted numbers (e.g. 01632 960850) according to the selected country, and leaves all internationally formatted numbers with prefix (e.g. +44 or other) in their original form. So don’t worry, all your SMS messages will reach their right destination.
