Creating tests in Live Number Testing


Input Sender ID(s), Text(s), select the Destination(s) and Supplier(s) desired. Optionally you can also modify parameters from Settings

Please keep in mind to select your own Suppliers, not our demo TelQ Wholesale supplier.

In this example, we selected 2 Sender ID and Text combinations (green link icon pointing to an existing saved content template and the orange link icon to a manually filled in content), 5 Destinations (networks) and 1 Supplier. You will notice that the Run button is pre-calculating the number of tests selected for this test batch:

As shown in the above screenshot, you have 4 options in order to proceed:


You can save this input (a combination of Sender ID and Texts, Destinations and Suppliers) as a Test Case Template and reuse it in the futureFor more information about templates click here.


If you press “Run”, a pop-up window will appear asking you to confirm the summary of the test batch. It will also display the total number of tests and the total amount that will be deducted from your balance for this batch:

Repeat / Batch Testing

You can issue batch testing by using the 'Repeat' counter next to the RUN button. This feature will multiply the tests set up with the value you entered in the Repeat section.

Please keep in mind that due to security and prevention reasons, the limits for batch testing are: 8000 tests or 99 'Repeat' value at once. The Repeat value will not be saved in Test Case templates or for repeat action button, but it can be used in Scheduler.


You can select to schedule this batch of tests for later or create a recurrent test. For more information about scheduler please click here.


Please refer to “Tour” and “Help” buttons in the upper right corner of the page for more information.


Description of testing parameters:

Sender ID & Text

You can either type a new Sender ID & Text, pick one from a template or upload from an excel file.

Typing a new Sender ID and Text: Once you type in a new sender ID and text, you can press the plus (+) buttons to add them. One or more Sender IDs can be linked to your content using the plus (+) button.

Similarly, if your Sender ID and text are saved as templates, you will be able to select them by clicking on a downward arrow and check your text(s):

If you would like to add additional content that is not provided in the dropdown, you can add your Sender ID and type in your custom content:

When adding content in the text box, you will be able to customize the Test ID Text by clicking on the “ID” icon. A pop-up will appear asking you to select and confirm your TelQ ID Settings. You can select your ID’s type (alpha, numeric, alphanumeric or Whatsapp code), as well as the case for your Alpha and Alphanumeric ID, and length (from 4 to 20 characters).

By default, the test ID text is a mixed case 10 letter code, however, if you wish to have a different default for your TelQ account, you can set your own ID values by clicking the “Save as default' button. Happy with your settings? Click on “Apply“.

 Once you customize your ID, you can click on it and place it anywhere in the test message body.

In case you need to duplicate the ID in the text, for instance, to repeat the same OTP code, you can indicate it by typing {TEST_ID_TEXT} in your content:





For more information about this feature, please click on the “What is ID?“ link below the textbox:

Selecting a Sender ID and Text combination from Templates. Please press on the “List” icon in order to view the existing templates. You can mark your favorites that will be displayed at the top of the list by clicking on the star button. Select the one(s) which you wish for your test and click “Done”. In order to remove the Sender ID and Text combination, please press on the red “x” sign.


Importing from Excel: You can also import the desired Sender ID and Text as an Excel sheet by clicking on the “From file“ button as shown in the below screenshot.

Please click on the download button to download the Example file and, if you are unsure of how to populate it, please refer to our guide by clicking the “help“ button.

If you wish to test multiple Sender IDs with the same text and include each respective SID in your content, you can use our Sender Tag option. Simply type in your Sender IDs and indicate in the textbox where you want the Sender IDs to appear by writing @sender:



As it is shown in the example, the text entry @sender will be replaced with the respective SenderID of the message.


You can optionally define UDH and TLV values, modify Protocol ID, Source TON, NPI and Data Coding, as well as TTL value for your test batch. From the Settings section you will also be able to add a comment before issuing your test. Please click here to learn more about Settings.


In this list, you may find all the destinations with the currently available test numbers, representing our coverage. To download our coverage in the last 30 or the last 90 days, please click on the downward arrow icon.








Please note that we check our test numbers' availability constantly and make sure to disable a test number if it does not communicate with our system for 4 minutes.

You may search for the destinations which you would like to test, select them with a check box or select all matching entries by clicking on the top check box.


Easy way to select multiple countries at once

Search for the first country (in this example Spain) and then click on the top check box.

Delete the text from the search box (“Spain”). You will be returned to default coverage list but your previously selected destinations will still remain selected. 

Unselect the top check box. Search for the second country that you wish to test in the search box (Germany in this example). In order to select all networks for Germany, please click again on the top check box.

Repeat these steps for all the countries that you need.

If you need to filter out the ported from non-ported numbers or vice versa, you can click on the gear icon and sort by selecting the right checkbox:







 Issue tests towards specific TelQ test numbers

We do not recommend testing specific test numbers instead of selecting the destination from the list due to the fact that we check the availability of our test numbers constantly and we update our coverage accordingly. Furthermore, our algorithms ensure the selection of the optimal test number for your test, depending on its usage, probability of it being whitelisted and its uptime.

When you choose to test a specific test number, our algorithms and availability checks are being bypassed, so we cannot guarantee that the test number you chose to test specifically is still available at the moment of the test and that it is functioning as expected.

Keeping in mind the above, you may issue a test towards a specific test number that was already allocated to you in past tests by pressing the “+” sign in Destinations and pasting the test number in international format. For multiple test numbers, please write them one below the other as shown in the below screenshots:






Issue tests to external phone numbers


We do not recommend testing external phone numbers because they do not have our software installed, so we cannot retrieve the Receipt confirmation from them. We consider an external number a number which is not part of our test number pool.

We can take as example your own mobile phone number. You can follow the same steps mentioned in the previous section.

If you run the test and your SMS supplier delivers to the MCCMNC to which your phone number belongs, you will receive the SMS, but our tool will not be able to confirm the receipt of the SMS on your handset because our software is not installed on your phone. 



In this list, you may find all the suppliers which you set up for your account, as well as our own demo TelQ Wholesale route. If you are just starting, please go through Suppliers and Connections sections and set up your suppliers first.

You may use TelQ Wholesale route in case you suspect one of our test numbers is not working properly and you can issue a test towards the same test number (as mentioned in “Issue tests towards specific TelQ test numbers”) via your supplier and TelQ route and compare the results. 

To search for the supplier(s) you would like to test, you can search by the supplier’s name, part of the name, and/or route type:



You can select the check box on its right or select all the entries matching your search value by clicking on the top check box:

In case you wish to select multiple suppliers at once for your test batch, to navigate your supplier list more quickly, you can use the import from excel option. You can download our example file and import the list as shown in the screenshot below:
