Send SMS in Production - MSG-242 Error

Good afternoon,

Today our company faced with an issue when we tried to send a SMS message from the Production environment.

Error object:

{
  "errorCode" : "FeatureNotAvailable
  "message" : "The requested feature is not available
  "errors" : [ {
    "errorCode" : "MSG-242",
    "message" : "The requested feature is not available"
  }]
}


I've tried to recreate it with by sending requests from your tool https://developers.ringcentral.com/api-reference/SMS/createSMSMessage
and it shows me the same error.

However the Sandbox environment works as expected: I'm able to send a SMS either through the tool or using API Calls.

I've also attached the screenshots of interaction with your portal below.
Note: I've used the Sandbox credentials.

Could you please provide a fix for this problem?

I just sent an SMS message from my production account to make sure our SMS service is up and run normally. All works well.

Are you able to send SMS from your RingCentral softphone?

I'm using the phone of our company, which is used for this account. It's in E.164 format.
It's a common phone number, nothing special.

Could you please provide me some steps how can I check is there a problem with my phone number?
