Getting success response from AWS SNS but SMS not delivered

I am writing a simple program to send SMS using SNS service using the Javascript client.

var AWS = require('aws-sdk');
var sns = new AWS.SNS({
  region : 'ap-southeast-1',
  accessKeyId: '',
  secretAccessKey: ''
      Message : "Test message",
      PhoneNumber : "Test number"
    }, function (err, data) {
        if(err) {
          console.log("Error - " + err);

        else {
          console.log('Success - ');



I get a success and the data looks like

{ ResponseMetadata: { RequestId: '3b4e8c82-976c-55da-b1fa-dcd9ddc7254d' },
  MessageId: '47a38cbe-2047-5056-a615-dce56aecc0c1' }

However, the SMS does not get delivered.

What could be the problem?


The messages started getting delivered after 24th for fresh requests. The metrics dashboard is showing the data a day stale. On the dashboard It correctly showed that all the SMS deliveries had failed on 21st September, inspite of a positive response from API. This is making me reconsider my decision of using SNS for SMS.

Thanks all who helped.

We need to specify more SNS parameters.

Documentation pages that might help:

try this code

var AWS = require('aws-sdk');
var sns = new AWS.SNS({
    region: 'ap-southeast-1',
    accessKeyId: '',
    secretAccessKey: ''

var params = {
    Message: 'Test message',
    MessageStructure: 'string',
    PhoneNumber: 'Test number'
sns.publish(params, function (err, data) {
    if (err) console.log("error-> " + err + "-" + number + "-" + JSON.stringify(params)); // an error occurred
    else console.log("SMS to " + number + " successfull " + JSON.stringify(data));           // successful response

You got output like this

{"ResponseMetadata":"RequestId":"2bb91f08-3ef0-5e55-8219-4645645"},"MessageId":"943a1224-042c-576c-936e-sfsdf34535"} {"Message":"hai manaf...r u happy","MessageStructure":"string","PhoneNumber":"+9197********"}.

But i don't get SMS to my DND activated phone number. i still research this issue.

What is your version of aws-sdk? Try update the newest one.
