I don't remember if my phone number is somehow tied to sending push notifications or not.

At this point, I am always able to successfully send and receive outbound push notifications if i setContactKey to my phone number. If I setContactKey to any other GUID or random non-empty, non-null value, I do not receive push notification events.

What could be amiss? Where can I change something so that contactKey can be anything else other than my phone number? At this point, outbound push notifications to all users is acceptable.


The only way Contact Key can affect your outbound push messages is during list creation. You need to make sure your audience list contains all the devices/contacts for which you wish to send a push message. Additionally, take note of the "refresh on send" option and apply to your list as appropriate.
