What is a Short Code?

A short code is a 5 or 6 digit phone number that is used by businesses, organizations, and government agencies to send regular text and MMS (picture) messages.  These messages can be used for marketing, communications,  alerts, notifications and more.

These numbers can only be used to send and receive text messages.  They do not have a voice channel to transmit calls.
