1. What is a Long Code?

A long code is a ten-digit number that represents any texts sent by your brand. Long codes will be used for anyone who has a monthly volume of under 2,000 SMS which has a throughput of 1 MPS at $0.012 per message. Once you exceed 2,000 SMS in a month, your account will automatically be given a toll-free number.
