Can I choose my own short code SMS number?

There are two kinds of short codes, shared and dedicated.

If you would like to have your own dedicated short code number, then yes you can choose your own short code SMS number within the limitations of what numbers are actually available from the networks. As dedicated short codes can be quite expensive, TextAnywhere also runs a number of shared short code numbers. These are numbers shared by our clients, with the first word of the message (known as the keyword) determining to which client the message is forwarded.

TextAnywhere provides a range of online applications for organisations wishing to use Short Code numbers in their SMS marketing campaigns. Please visit our SMS Short Code page to find out more.
