Troubleshooting SMS with Twilio Flex

Are you experiencing issues with sending or receiving SMS messages in Twilio Flex? If so, please check the following troubleshooting steps.

Not Receiving Incoming SMS in Flex

If you're not seeing incoming SMS in Flex, check if the incoming messages are arriving in your Twilio Project. Send another test message or two, and then check for new incoming messages using one of the following methods:

  • Look for any message failures in the Debugger page in Console.
  • Check the Programmable SMS Logs page in Console.
  • Check for Message Resources via the REST API.

If the messages are found in your Twilio project, but not hitting Flex, troubleshooting with the following checklist:

  • Run a Flex System Checkup from Console, and cleanup any Inactive Chats.
  • Check the Studio Messaging Flow for any Stuck Executions.
  • Verify your phone number is correctly configured for Flex:
    • Access the Flex Messaging page in Console, and verify your Twilio phone number is listed under "Incoming Message Handlers".
    • Access the Proxy Dashboard page in Console, and verify Flex Proxy Service lists your Twilio number under "Phone Numbers".
  • Revert the Studio Messaging Flow to the first revision.
  • Review the guide How do I troubleshoot my messaging setup (Twilio Docs).

If no messages are found in your Twilio project, please see Not Receiving Incoming SMS and MMS Messages on Twilio Phone Number.
