Once you have completed your account registration, you will have a choice from virtually thousands of long code numbers. Why a long code? 1. It can be voicemail-activated. 2. It can be SMS-enabled. 3. It means you don’t have to spend the energy, time, and money to purchase a short code. 4. Long codes have farther-reaching ‘arms’—they can deliver SMS messages to more digital media platforms in more countries.
You will be able to have up to 5 long codes in each of your accounts. Multiple numbers can share the workload and give you double the number of SMS messages sent per second, cutting down your work time. Also, in cases where you might be sending thousands of identical SMS messages at once, multiple telephone numbers mean that mobile carriers are less likely to be nervous about the texting traffic.
