Common Short Code Administration (CSCA)
The Common Short Code Administration or CSCA for short, handles all of the SMS short codes in the United States. Neustar holds a contract with the CSCA that allows them to administer all of the short codes used in the United States. Standards set the length of a common short code at 5 or 6 digits with major carriers using fewer digits for in-house programs. Leasing a random short code from Neustar will cost $500 per month while a code of choice runs $1,000 per month.
DialMyCalls utilizes the short code ‘80123’ for all of our SMS broadcasting. Text messages sent through our service will display 80123 as the Caller ID on the recipient’s mobile phone.
