Changing the sender ID for sending SMS messages

You can specify the From parameter to be any SMS-enabled Twilio number (in your account) or alphanumeric sender ID.

When sending a SMS message from Twilio, you cannot set the ‘From’ phone number as a phone number that you do not own in your Twilio Account. Spoofing another business or identity is also not allowed with an alphanumeric sender ID.

Please note that alphanumeric sender IDs are only supported in a select number of countries. You can view the list of supported countries here.
