Concepts2Code Support 10DLC and Short Codes. This article explains the required information to register your texting number with the Campaign Registry. Concepts2Code will collect this information from you and submit the application. Applications can take up to 45 days to be approved. We will monitor the status of your application.

Mobile carriers implemented 10DLC regulations to prevent bad actors from posing as legitimate businesses and spamming or scamming contacts who never asked to be texted. 

The goal of 10DLC regulations is to ensure consumers get messages they actually want, that they are not harmed by bad actors, and to keep texting a clean and effective channel for business communications. 

There are also a couple of happy byproducts of 10DLC regulations for your business:

  • You’ll be able to send more messages faster and with higher delivery rates
  • Your business will appear more legitimate once you’ve reg

To comply with the 10DLC registration requirements, the following information will be needed from your agency. Once you provide this information, we will begin the registration process.  See below for detailed examples of Opt-in options that are required for submission.
