Unverified (also called Restricted) TFNs are toll-free numbers that have not completed the toll-free sender verification process. Pending Verification TFNs are toll-free numbers where a verification request has been submitted, but the request is pending review and approval.

Daily Limit: 500 messages per day per unverified TFN

Toll-Free numbers must be in a Pending Verification or Verified state when sending to Canada. Unverified TFNs are blocked from sending towards Canada.
In the near future, the verification process will need to be completed before sending any traffic on a Toll-Free number. Sinch will make every effort to let you know in advance of further changes, however, please start to prepare and plan for this change in your onboarding processes now.
TFNs that are unverified are subject to the highest amount of filtering applied to their traffic, and may be blockedif any spam or unwanted traffic is detected. Pending Verification TFNs are also subject to more stringent message filtering than Verified TFNs.
Sinch Toll-Free Sender Verification ensures better deliverability for messages from your toll-free number (TFN). TFNs that are not verified are subject to rate limits and blocking towards US and Canadian carriers.
