SMS Common Short Codes (CSCs)

Hello,

Can I send and receive SMS Common Short Codes (CSCs) (e.g. 12345, 246808)?

Hello Jimmy,

You should be able to but if you would like to test it and let us all know that would be great.

Hello Patrick,

I don't have the phone yet but that would be a key issue if I cannot send nor receive these SMS CSCs.

The great news is we offer a 30 day return policy. So if the short codes don't work you can always return the phone.

Out of curiosity what do you use short codes for?

Hello Patrick,

So many web sites use short codes for 2nd login validation, balance alerts, even Redbox uses these short codes for new releases.

I don't use short codes much, but I did try sending a text to a short code for an event recently and it didn't seem to work.

I just tried activating my Scratch Wireless Photon Q using Twitter's short code (40404), but it didn't work either (this is a good and easy way to test if short codes are working).

I don't think short codes work with Scratch Wireless at this time. It would be a significant functionality to add though since texting is always free. Patrick, can Scratch Wireless make this happen?
