In the USA mobile users pay to receive standard SMS. This is different to almost all other destinations worldwide, where SMS is free to receive. Due to the additional cost to the mobile user the networks in the USA have stricter regulations and policies.
With Kapow you can send messages to USA numbers with our standard service, or you can choose to send the messages on-net over an approved Shortcode to ensure reliability.
Full details on sending standard rate SMS to the USA can be found in our Sending Standard Rate SMS to USA document.
