Important registration requirement for A2P 10DLC messaging, which is essential for ensuring the continued delivery of your application-to-person (A2P) text messages.  As you may already be aware, A2P 10DLC is a messaging framework introduced by major mobile carriers in the United States to enhance the reliability and deliverability of application-to-person SMS messages.

This is also part of the FCC’s recent initiative to limit texts from illegitimate numbers which have been exploding over the past few years.

To comply with the new requirements, it is imperative that you complete the registration quickly. Beginning  Sept 1, 2023, carriers have the right to block messages that come from unregistered phone numbers.

In order to successfully complete the registration, it is vital that you have your Business Employer Identification Number (EIN) documents readily available. These documents are a mandatory requirement for registration and will help validate your business and messaging traffic.

Your CSM will assist you in placing the necessary information in the registration form, including:

  1. Business Profile Details: Please provide accurate and up-to-date information about your company, including contact details.
  2. Brand Registration: Identify and register the brand(s) you intend to use for sending A2P messages. This includes providing brand names, business categories, and any relevant brand documentation.
  3. Campaign Registration: If you have specific campaigns planned, your CSM will guide you through the registration process. Be prepared to share campaign details, such as purpose, start and end dates, message content, and expected volume.

We understand that this may seem like a complex process, but we assure you that our CSMs are here to provide dedicated support and ensure that your registration is completed in a timely manner.  Failure to complete the registration before the Sept 1 deadline may result in immediate disruptions to your A2P messaging services.

Should you have any questions, concerns, or require further clarification, please don’t hesitate to contact your CSM. We are committed to assisting you every step of the way to ensure a seamless transition to the A2P 10DLC framework.  Thank you for your immediate attention to this matter.
