What is the difference between Sender ID and a dedicated virtual number?

The Sender ID is the mobile number displayed on the recipient's handset. The recipient can reply directly to that number by using his reply button. With My-Cool-SMS you can use your own cell phone number as Sender ID and receive replies directly on your mobile.
A dedicated My-Cool-SMS virtual number is a mobile number that fully integrates with your My-Cool-SMS account. You can use it as Sender ID and replies sent to that number will be displayed in your My-Cool-SMS account and can be forwarded to a mobile phone, an email address or any URL by using the HTTP callback function.
One My-Cool-SMS online number is included in MOBILE EDGE accounts. Optional My-Cool-SMS virtual numbers can be purchased with MOBILE PREPAID and EXECUTIVE accounts at below rates.
Important: Please note that the Sender ID feature is currently *not* available when sending to the following countries: Argentina, Belgium, Brazil, China, Colombia, Egypt, France, Hungary, Indonesia, Iraq, Japan, Jordan, Kuwait, Malaysia, Mexico, New Caledonia, Pakistan, Peru, Philippines, Poland, Russian Federation, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Ukraine, United Arab Emirates. When sending SMS to these countries a random number will be displayed on the target handset instead.
