Frequently Asked Questions
What is the ETA on 10DLC Registration?
Most reviews are completed within 8-10 business days.
Do I have to wait for 8-10 days before using Salesmsg again?
No, you can go back to using our application right after you submit both the Business Profile and Campaign through our UI. However, the carriers might filter some of the messages as coming from an unregistered number.
Can Salesmsg speed up the process?
Review and approval are not something Salesmsg controls. We can provide you with the latest status and assist if anything goes wrong in the process, but we cannot expedite the review time.
Can I use a Toll-Free number instead of 10DLC?
So long as you have a local number present in your account, you need to register it to be fully compliant. Using a Toll-Free number doesn't exempt you from the registration process for 10DLC.
