A Textable Number is a 10-digit phone number that allows you to have 1-to-1 chat conversations with your contacts. EZ Texting can provide you with a number that you can rent from us in case you don't want to use your own number.
Or, if you would like to use this feature using your own number, learn how to enable this on your EZ account.
Please note: The new long code number release is currently in beta testing. If you are renting a textable number after activating your account, this number will not be able to send mass messages nor will it react to keyword opt-ins. However, it can still be used for 1-on-1 messaging.
For your customers, it feels just like texting with a friend. For you, it’s as simple as writing an email. Most importantly, it’s completely trackable and you can do it from your computer or on your phone using our mobile app.
