To send and receive SMS in Eritrea, Telerivet recommends using an Android phone with the Telerivet Android app.
With the Telerivet Android app, your organization only needs one inexpensive Android smartphone with internet access and a local SIM card to serve as your SMS gateway.
The Telerivet Android app makes it possible to send and receive SMS with any mobile phone user in your country – even if they don't have smartphones or internet access.
How it works
The Telerivet Android app forwards SMS messages between your Android phone's mobile network and Telerivet's servers.
In order for the app to work, you just need to keep the Android phone turned on, connected to the internet, and make sure it has airtime to send SMS messages.
Telerivet also supports connecting third-party SMS shortcodes, gateways, SIM hosting services, and aggregator APIs to send and receive SMS in Eritrea. If you want to use an alternative method of sending messages, contact us for more information.
