Send SMS to service numbers without the "+" in front

#1

Hi all,

Here in the Netherlands we have some providers who have unlimited 4g at home.
with this you will get a sim card that you are allowed to put in a router and get 100 GB a month.
If you use up 100 GB that month you will get 5 GB every day for the rest of the month.
And if you use up the 5 GB you will be able to extend it with 2 GB when you send a SMS for example to 1280.
But because you cant send a SMS to a number without a “+” in front you wont be able to send the SMS to extent those 2 GB.

So my Feature request: The ability to send a SMS to a number without the “+” in front. Preferably by API.

Kind regards,

Dylan van Elst
