What you need to know when sending SMS messages to the USA.
When it comes to quick delivery for activation, authentication or transactional SMS messages in the USA, we recommend sending your SMS messages via our shared shortcode routes. For more information on how to apply for a shared shortcode and what you can use them for, take a look at the USA SMS Shortcode guidelines.
If however, you’d like replies, then we recommend applying for a dedicated long number. When you send your SMS messages using a dedicated long number, this becomes your Sender ID (the number your message will come from). When you first send your customers an SMS, you can let them know that this is the only number you will message them from, and that they can save this number to their phonebook. This way, they can text you whenever they need to. We offer both standard priced long numbers, or toll free long numbers.

You can of course use our default route, but this does have certain limitations. For example, our default route is not two-way, which means your customers can’t reply to your messages. This route is also less time-sensitive as message delivery may be delayed, depending on the amount of traffic going through our default route. Your customers also may not realise who the message is from because the Sender ID can change every time you send a message.
