Due to the increase in the volume of fraudulent text messages that some unscrupulous customers "also referred to as fraudsters or 419" are sending, MTN Nigeria compelled us to call on our esteemed customers who send legitimate messages to submit as many sender ID as they want for registration.
Please, note that your messages will not be delivered to MTN customers if your sender ID has not been registered, but your credit will be deducted.
Therefore, we advise that you don't send a message on our platform if you have not confirmed that your sender ID has been successfully registered to avoid wasting your hard-earned money unnecessarily.
To know if your sender ID has been registered, you will need to test your proposed sender ID to confirm if it has been successfully registered or not.
To test your sender IDs, to know if it has been successfully registered, use the sender ID to send a message to two or more MTN numbers. You will get the message delivered and see your customized sender ID displayed on the MTN numbers if your sender ID has been successfully registered and the MTN number(s) in question is/are not on Do-Not-Disturb (DND). If the message is not delivered, there is a high possibility that the sender ID has not been registered or it is a new sender ID which you also need to register or the MTN number(s) you are sending the text messages to is/are on Do-Not-Disturb (DND).
Temporarily, you can click PRSI to see the list of our 76 preregistered sender IDs like IMPORTANT, REMINDER, BELOVED, PASTOR, SCHOOL FEE and more which you can use as your sender ID while you are waiting for your own submitted customized sender IDs to be registered.
The registration process will take between 24 and 72 hours (excluding weekends) before you can get the submitted sender IDs registered and displayed on recipients' telephones. You should confirm that your sender ID has been registered before sending the messages in order not to waste your SMS credits. If the sender ID is/are not registered after 24 hours, you will need to allow more time for our SMS aggregator to register the list of sender IDs that we sent to them and check back after another 24 hours. The registration process is taking a long time now because the process just commenced.
Remember to make sure that the sender ID to be submitted for registration is not more than 11 characters long. Also avoid the use of special characters like _,+,!,*,&,#,@,-,$, etc in your proposed sender ID. Any sender ID that is submitted twice or more will be ignored and it will not be registered because our system will see it as spam submissions.
Also, in your sender ID, avoid the use of a government agent/institutions' name or abbreviations, banks' names or abbreviations, big companies' name or abbreviations and international companies/institutions' names or abbreviations. Your sender ID will not be registered if it contains any of the names or abbreviations.
In addition, we want you to note that sender ID registration does not overrule the existing DND policy. This simply means that numbers on DND will still not receive messages that you are sending with your registered sender ID. The only solution to DND issue is to deactivate DND on the number(s) in question.
Kindly fill the form below to submit all your sender IDs for registration.
When we looked at how long it takes our SMS aggregator to register our sender IDs each time a new batch of sender IDs is sent to them, we decided to come up with a list of 74 sender IDs and got them registered successfully. These sender IDs are generic in nature and individuals, organizations, religious groups or businesses can choose from the list to quickly send bulk text messages while waiting for their customised sender IDs to be registered.
You need to test any of the pre-registered sender IDs below before using them as your sender ID in sending messages to confirm their delivery.
The list of our 74 Pre-Registered Sender IDs (PRSI) is provided below.
