SMS and voice alerts in China

You may find information regarding ilert voice and SMS alerts for Chinese landline and mobile devices below.

Call Limitations to China

Due to strict spam monitoring and regulations on communications terminating to China, calls with short durations or repeated calls of the same number within a rolling hour have a high chance of being blocked. This is not something unique to ilert's platform and is a universal behaviour for all international traffic terminating to China.

Receiving voice alerts in China

With the help of our platform solution and our partners ilert still tries to offer voice alerting to users and customers in China. Since China's monitoring happens downstream from ilert and ilert's partners, we have no control over the blocking process. Call delivery to China will be made on a best-effort basis.

What you need to know

  • If a high number of unique alerts are triggering voice alerts for your Chinese number in a single hour, there is a chance that calls will be skipped to prevent blocking (this is logged in the alerts timeline), we suggest to always add a secondary notification preference a long voice alerts for Chinese users
