Inbound text messaging service allow businesses to receive text message from mobile subscribers. This is cost effective way of communicating with customers, employees, field sales, marketing, polling, etc.

To receive a text message carriers provide 5-6 digit number which is capable of receiving and sending only Text or MMS messages between mobile subscribers and an web, or desktop application. The short code needs to provisioned with carrier after their approval of your application, this is known as dedicated short code. It takes 10-12 weeks for getting your own short code number provisioned and certified. Text message marketing company like TXTImpact can provide you with shared short code, which you can use immediately without any wait time.

What is Short code?

Short codes are 5 or 6 digit numbers, to which wireless subscribers can address text messages, regardless of their wireless service provider. Short codes are easier to remember, handy and more compatible across all participating carriers. Short codes play the same role as a website URL does in internet world in driving end users to a common method of interaction. Therefore, this is a good idea for application developers to take advantage of short codes to provide interactive and handy wireless solutions. These applications or solutions can be chat, bill payments, marketing, polling, coupons, etc. that can be implemented using short code advantages.

If you are planning to send or receive messages across North America, you need to register your short code with all carriers so that all users regardless of their carrier or operator will be able to send messages to the same number and receive a message on his or her handset.

The other way to receive and send text message is a virtual phone number also know as long code or number. You can still receive and send text message from applications, but there are still some of major drawback of using long numbers.
