We give an option for customers to rent those numbers. Customers can subscribe to a plan so they can use those numbers for 2-way SMS. At the moment, 1-way SMS automated renting is not yet available.
Long codes are general use phone numbers available for smaller daily use. They typically work with voice, SMS, and MMS. These are usually available for purchase immediately and can be used to send up to 1 message per second. Majority of customers will use long codes. There is a recommended limit of 250 sends per day per long code. You can buy multiple long codes if needed.
SMS.to has an exclusive license to the following numbers. This means that SMS.to controls everything from this number.
Short codes are 5 or 6 digit numbers bought for a large volume of SMS/MMS sends and replies, and in some countries like the USA require a lease for national registry for a minimum of three months. This process may take 8-12 weeks to complete and costs more than long codes.
Applies to USA Customers: Customers with a higher volume or user base, who also requires higher sending limits (30 messages per second by default) may consider purchasing short codes.
