Amazon Pinpoint SMS Channel

You can enable the SMS channel in Amazon Pinpoint to send text messages, or SMS messages, to SMS-enabled devices.

You can manage SMS channel settings to tailor your SMS deliveries for your use cases and budget. For example, you can choose whether your messages are optimized for cost or for reliable delivery. You can also specify spending limits for individual message deliveries and monthly spending limits.


Your SMS channel settings apply to all SMS messages that you send from your AWS account. This includes messages sent with AWS services other than Amazon Pinpoint.

Where required by local laws and regulations (such as the US and Canada), SMS recipients can opt out, which means that they choose to stop receiving SMS messages from your AWS account.

You can use Amazon Pinpoint to send SMS messages to more than 200 countries and/or regions. For more information, see Supported Countries and Regions.
