Sending SMS to French overseas territories.
- Outbound SMS
- French Overseas Territories
French overseas territory phone numbers can be dialed from mainland France without a country code, but they do actually have their own separate country codes and prefixes.
In order to send SMS to these countries with the Vonage SMS API, it is necessary to use their individual country code. Using France's +33 prefix will result in rejections and failed SMS deliveries.
For example, for a Réunion number that from France can be reached with 33692xxxxx, your Vonage API calls should actually use the +262 Réunion prefix, that is, 262692xxxxx.
Examples of valid number formats to use in your Vonage API calls below:
