A long code is a 10- digit number, just like a phone number, which a company uses to send or receive text messages.
In order for you to send and receive messages with that company, you’ll need to opt-in by consenting to receive communication from that company.
Once you sign up for a company specific long code program, you'll receive their related text messages on your mobile phone.
Types of long code programs:
There is only one type of long code program:
- Standard programs - Messages sent to and received from standard programs will come out of allotted messages in your rate plan or bundle. Otherwise, standard messaging rates apply.
Long code programs can be stopped by replying to a message with the word STOP.
