SMS Code Referance

Have u received some SMS AD in ur Mobile and Ever confused by what does LM-ICICIBNK, VX-Citibank, LM-AxisBank, BT-SBI, AM-Holidays etc. means in the last line of SMS ??

As per new TRAI regulation insisted bulk SMS providers to restrict the "Sender ID" to 8 characters.Other three characters should be used to specify who is the service provider & where it’s originated from. Say for example: HDFCBANK sends an SMS to you using bulk SMS provider located at Tamil Nadu which uses Airtel. You will receive it as AT-HDFCBANK. First character specifies which service provider the message is being originated & the second character specifies from which location it’s originated.

Here is the table which has details of these SMS codes:-

Service Provider                                                     Code
Aircel, Dishnet Wireless==================> D
Bharti Airtel===========================> A
BSNL================================> B

HFCL Infotel==========================> H

L=BPL Mobile/Loop Telecom(Service Provider)
M=Mumbai                             (Service Area)

So, combination of these two constitutes the first two digit of “Sender” followed by an hyphen (-) & actual sender name.
