What is the default number when sending SMS?

The default when sending is always going to be the local number on your PastorsLine account or the local number you were assigned (if your account has more than one local number). However, you can make our PastorsLine shared short code, 77411 your default.

Here's how:

V2 Users: Jump to your section.

V3 Users: Scroll down.


V3 USERS

Setting the PastorsLine shared short code as your default "send from" number is done in User Settings on the My Numbers page.

HOW TO DO THIS

Step 1

Click on your dashboard in the lower, left-hand corner of the page (thumbnail/icon/initials, gold arrow and #1 in image to the left).

Step 2

Click on User Settings (turquoise arrow and #2 in image to the left).

The page will refresh.

Step 3

Click on My Numbers (gold arrow in image to the left).

Step 4

At the top of the My Numbers page, you will see the Set Short Code as your Default Sender ID toggle button (gold box in image to the left).

Step 4

Toggle it on. The button will turn purple (gold arrow in image below).

Also, a confirmation message will display.

The PastorsLine shared short code is now your default "send from" number.

The crown icon (brown box in image above)...

indicates that the short code is your primary number default when sending texts. In other words, unless you change it, your SMS will be sent from our PastorsLine shared short code, 77411.
