Wireless carriers require 10-digit local phone numbers to be registered if they're being used to send and receive text messages.
A2P 10DLC (Application-to-Person 10-Digit long code) is the name of this SMS 'highway' which allows organizations to send mass text messages via standard 10-digit local phone numbers.
The information we collect is used to verify your organization with wireless carriers. It confirms that your organization is a legitimate entity that can be trusted. With this new registration process, your long code's message deliverability will be much higher and your messages will send significantly faster. The downside is that you have to go through a short registration process.
Are there any additional fees?
The carriers impose additional fees for both registration and messaging. However, Clearstream covers these fees, so there is no additional cost for your church.
