Managing the Amazon Pinpoint SMS Channel

Use the Amazon Pinpoint console to enable the SMS channel and manage SMS settings, such as how your deliveries are optimized (for cost or for reliable delivery) and your monthly spending limit.

To update your SMS settings, use the Account settings page. For more information, see Managing Account Settings in Amazon Pinpoint.

Before you can use Amazon Pinpoint to send SMS messages, you must enable the SMS channel for one or more projects.

SMS Opt Out

Where required by local laws and regulations (such as in the US and Canada), SMS recipients can use their devices to opt out by replying to the message with any of the following:

  • ARRET (French)


  • END



  • QUIT


  • STOP

  • TD


To opt out, the recipient must reply to the same long code or short code that Amazon Pinpoint used to deliver the message. After opting out, the recipient no longer receives SMS messages from your AWS account.
