Get coverage command

This command allows you to check our coverage of a network or mobile number, without sending a message to that handset. This command should NOT be used before sending each message.

The returned credit charge value indicates the lowest possible credit charge at that point in time (for a single plain-text message). Credit charges may fluctuate (based on the availability of delivery routes and features) and there is no guarantee that all your messages will be charged this value.


Command
routecoverage

Parameters

You also need to supply the authentication parameters.

Parameter

Description

msisdn

This is the mobile number you would like to query. It must be in international format (i.e. no leading zeros or + symbols).
