When text messages are sent to a landline phone number they will error, but these are still chargeable messages.
We offer an additional service to validate all phone numbers as mobile prior to attempting to send a text message. By confirming a phone number as being a mobile number, you will save money not attempting to send text messages to landline phone numbers.
The cost for each number validation is $0.01 USD, and is turned on at the account level.
