Broadcast status updates via SMS to your subscribers anywhere on the planet using your Vonage account.
Status.io does not charge extra for SMS messages. Instead we built integrations with Twilio and Vonage allowing you to use your own account and phone number with independent billing.
Vonage charges per SMS message. International messaging rates vary and we highly recommend reviewing Vonage’s pricing at https://www.vonage.com/communications-apis/sms/pricing/
For best security practices, we recommend creating a separate Vonage account to use only with your status page.
Note: Each status page requires a unique phone number for SMS. If you have multiple status pages, a new number must be created for each status page.
