After you have registered and ready to send your message on Loftysms.com.

  • Sign-in to your account and click on the Send SMS link
  • On your Send SMS page just before the Send Message button, you’ll see the DND Management options

as shown in the image below



Can you see the three options on the screenshot  above? Yes! . Let’s check how each option works;

  • Option 1 –  Use corporate route for only DND phone numbers

This is the default selection and we generally recommend using this option. If selected we will attempt to send all your messages through the normal route but will send only Do-not-disturb numbers through the corporate route.

  • Option 2 – Use corporate route for all the phone numbers 

Clicking on this option 2 simply means you want all your messages to be delivered to phone numbers through corporate routes.  This helps your messages to be delivered to all phone numbers using the corporate route

Why would you use this? if you’re sure that all the phone numbers you have are on Do -Not – Disturb, you might opt for this option. Simply click the DND management option 2 and then click send.

This option is more effective for message delivery with the introduction of what we will call the corporate route.

  • Option 3 –  Discharge phone numbers on DND and don’t charge me 

This is the last option on DND management. It send messages to ONLY phone numbers on normal route and ignore phone numbers on Do – Not – Disturb.

When you select this option, we will not charge you for Do-not-disturb numbers


     But always leave it on option 1 if you don’t know the type of phone numbers of your recipients
