Short Codes

Short codes (or short numbers) are special telephone numbers, significantly shorter than full telephone numbers, which can also be used to address SMS and MMS messages from mobile phones. They are designed to be shorter to read out and easier to remember than normal telephone numbers.

Short codes are memorable four or five digit SMS text numbers (e.g. 1948) which are widely used in Premium and Non-Premium Rate SMS services such as corporate mobile service, reality show voting, on demand services, charity donation services, outdoor advertising, TV and radio contribution, and competitions.
