A short code is an authorized phone number that allows you to send texts from your account without getting blocked as spam. You cannot pick the short code from which your messages come as our system utilizes a common-use short code to send out texts.
If you have a long code number on the account, the same rules apply in that the number will be assigned. These numbers are assigned as we are unable to provide numbers that may already be registered to another individual.
If using the short code to send group texts, however, we always recommend you put your business/organization’s name in the Company Name or Subject line of the New Message so that it comes up at the top of the text in parenthesis, like a header.
