Mobile Originated Message

MO Message refers to where a message originated from or was received from via a mobile device.


How Bandwidth is Involved with MO Messages

Bandwidth’s messaging services allow our customers to use MO and MT messages to better their business.

For example, let’s say that your business offers appointment reminders that your customer can either ‘confirm’ or ‘cancel’. The message containing the word “Confirm” that your customer sends to agree to the appointment is considered the MO message. Upon receiving this message, your business may have programmed an automatic reply such as “Thank you”. The message that your customer receives saying “thank you” on their mobile device is considered to be the MT (Mobile Terminated) Message.
