Deletes an existing pool. Deleting a pool disassociates all origination identities from that pool.

If the pool status isn't active or if deletion protection is enabled, an Error is returned.

A pool is a collection of phone numbers and SenderIds. A pool can include one or more phone numbers and SenderIds that are associated with your Amazon Web Services account.
