This page is closely related to STIR/SHAKEN registration requirements for phone calls. Here we will specifically talk about SMS registration. STIR/SHAKEN is the registration process introduced by the FCC to prevent spam phone calls and verify caller ID. The registration for SMS is A2P-10DLC. Yup, that’s what it’s called. A2P = application to person. Any company sending SMS is an application. Even if you are sending SMS from one person to another (P2P).
Just like STIR/SHAKEN is an ongoing process with the FCC, SMS regulations are evolving.
Fastcall will help manage this process for you.
The requirements are similar to STIR/SHAKEN. We add additional details about the SMS campaign. These messages are considered campaigns. Again, even if these are individual messages.
