SMS stands for Short Message Service. This is the standard by which all phones send and receive 160 character text messages. ‘Text Messages’ and ‘SMS’ are often used synonymously.
160 is the standard length for SMS text messages.
Only from their wireless provider, and most wireless carriers include text messaging with their service plans so it is 100% free to the end-user (your customer).
We work with all major carriers across more than 58 countries internationally. In the US and Canada, we provide shared and dedicated short codes, and even long codes. International 2-way and 1-way SMS routes are available as well.

Messages must be delivered to a consumer’s mobile device only after the user has opted in to receive them. A user might indicate interest in a program in several ways. This can be accomplished by the user texting in your KEYWORD to the short code. Many businesses have now added a disclaimer in their purchase agreements to their customers expressly stating that by signing the purchase order they are agreeing to accept mobile messages from the business. This is also an acceptable opt-in and these phone numbers can be uploaded for future marketing efforts. The final way to get opt-ins to your mobile database of customers is to install multiple web opt-in scripts on your website. If you have frequent visitors to your site, offer them coupons, specials, reminders, exclusive information, and all they do is type in their phone number. When they type in the phone number they are uploaded into the database automatically.
Users can Opt-Out at any time by replying STOP to any message they receive.
It is an abbreviated phone number that can be 5 or 6 digits in the US. This 5 or 6 digit number identifies what company and program is sending Business to Consumer (B2C) texts. Whether you want to utilize one of our short or long codes or want to provision your own dedicated code for any country, contact us today and we can review pricing 1-323-230-3262.
Short code programs have to be individually approved by each wireless carrier to prevent spammers. We handle all of these issues for your company.
It varies by circumstance. Many people can leverage one of our shared short codes at extremely reasonable rates and do everything they need to do in order to both remain compliant and maintain the integrity of their data.
However some circumstances predicate the procurement of your own dedicated short code. We can certainly facilitate your needs here and often even have already provisioned short codes just waiting for the next owner. Contact us today and we can discuss your situation and help you determine whether you need your own short code or could potentially use on of ours plus the costs associated.
This is a common question we get asked. Short Codes are commonly used for almost every type of SMS text message: marketing, transaction, alerts, notifications, emergency, and more. Short Codes are intended to handle any message that is marketing in nature. If your campaign requires high volumes of messages, then a short code is the best and most reliable option.
SMS Long Codes are more often used for lower volume SMS messages. Some people use them for Web to chat or customer service type functions, transactional alerts, appointment notifications, and more. Long codes are not designed for bulk SMS nor will the carrier provision them for that type of use. We typically recommend less than 200 SMS per day per long code. Thus a business that is going to send thousands, tens of thousands, or even more SMS on a daily basis but wish to use long codes would then secure a bank of long codes and divide traffic between them. This is something that can be easily done with the TExtFans.com API.
