Mobile Phone Registration

Overview

You also could associate a registered device (Android, iOS) with a phone number in order to send push notifications to a device using a phone number rather than a device ID. Once the phone number is associated with a registered device, Messangi will send a SMS with a validation code to the phone number.

This is extremely useful when you need to keep it simple, because it allows you to broadcast your messages using regular mobile number lists rather than devices id list

If you want to use this mechanism we recommend you to combine it in your lobby page since you just need to do this one time.

Also, remember that you will need the SMS validation code to activate the mobile phone number.
