TOPIC: only use phone if there is a certain prefix

only use phone if there is a certain prefix 6 years, 1 month ago #40498

Just bought this and it works great.
This is probably a feature request but also it would mean I'm not wasting credits sending to numbers that can't receive texts.
Sometimes it sends to numbers beginning 01 or (+441 if international used).
Some of my customers use both phone entries for landline numbers some put the landline in phone_1 and mobile in phone_2 some the other way round.
Is there anyway to restrict sending of sms so it only happens if phone_1 or phone_2 begins with 07 or (+447), as this "prefix" is only used for mobile phones in the UK, otherwise it shouldn't send an sms?

Thanks.

Hello,
yes, such restriction is possible.
Please, check chapter "3.2.2. Phone Numbers Filtering Configuration" of VM SMS documentation.
