Frequently asked questions

We talk about the pros and cons of different number types in a recent blog post. In the US, application-to-person (A2P) texting requires the use of 10DLC numbers, while short codes have different benefits.

Nothing could be easier. You can set up an SMS autoresponder that includes a custom message and a URL, or set up an MMS autoresponder with similar information plus an image or document.

High-quality, well-formatted content is more likely to be opened and less likely to be mistaken as spam by consumers, operators, and carriers. Follow these guidelines.

You can receive text messages from devices or people without writing a single line of code by using our PHLO visual design tool, or code an application in any of seven languages with the help of a Plivo SDK.
