Currently international SMS is a licence SKU, you will need to speak to your account manager to work out the commercail implications before that can be enabled. Thanks for the question

I am using e free trial. Is that the reason this is showing me or it will show to all licensed and free accounts??

Hi Rohit

This will be the case for all licensed and free accounts. As Mel said this is not a free service outside of US and Canada, and therefore needs a feature flag enabled to switch this functionality on as international SMS charges are incurred.
