        It just works as expected within minutes -- you get both outbound/inbound messages, with delivery receipts or incoming callbacks -- all working in the easiest form.

        We fall back to Nexmo when Chikka (https://api.chikka.com) and Semaphore (http://semaphore.co) have downtime or deliverability problems. Chikka and Semaphore are local (Philippine) SMS APIs handled by SMART and Globe, respectively, and report higher deliverability rates than Nexmo (at lower cost).
