Web Service - Methods - GetPremiumSMSInbound


This method is used to retrieve messages sent to a specified keyword on a short code number.

Please be aware that once you have requested and received your inbound text messages, those text messages will be deleted from the SMS Gateway and cannot be re-requested.

You can choose to receive the return code data from this method as either a CSV string or XML through your setting of the returnCSVString parameter.

If a CSV string is requested, the first line will contain the Transaction code contained within the '#' characters.

This method is not relevant when you have configured, online, for all inbound messages to be automatically sent to a nominated URL. This automated approach is the most common and efficient means of receiving inbound messages.
