MMS & SMS Short Codes for Texting

Short codes have the capability to send mass SMS messages and multimedia messages (MMS). It's important to remember when dealing with SMS short codes is that they can send and receive SMS and MMS messages at very high volumes, and the messages being sent can contain promotional content. Keep in mind, before your SMS short code can ever send a multimedia text message, the content must first be preapproved by the phone carriers during the short code provisioning process.
