Abstract: The use of uncensored customized sender IDs both numerical and alpha has been a big challenge to the Bulk SMS business since the year begun. This resulted into telecom companies blocking these bulk SMS companies from reaching their clients. For that matter, we embarked on this research using the following methods; one shot survey, questionnaires and interviews to find out whether this was a general challenge. We carried out our research on 50 people and 90% of our result confirmed our suspicion that indeed it was a general challenge. During our research, we approached MTN with a quest of finding out why they are blocking the bulk SMS companies and the response we got was that it was an initiative to protect their clients from being victims of misuse of customized sender ids. Also to promote their own bulk SMS packages but most of all to protect their clients from fraud. This being a locally identified problem, we came up with an initiative to limit the usage of customized alpha numeric sender id’s so as to identify any user who tries to misuse the SMS platforms hence allowing sending of bulk SMS directly to the respective recipients using the internet both reliable and liable.
