Free SMS Short Code Lookup Tool – U.S. Short Code Directory

Free SMS Short Code Lookup Tool – U.S. Short Code Directory


Hi, my name is Derek Johnson from tatango.com. Today, I’m going to be showing you how to
use the U.S. Short Code Directory to look up who owns a
U.S. short code. So, what is a short code? A short code is a five to six-digit phone
number that is used by a brand to communicate to their customers. So, an example would be 12345. That is a five-digit short code, and that
would be used by a brand to send out text messages to their customers. So, what I’m going to be showing you today
is how to use the U.S. Short Code Directory, which is owned by Tatango,
to figure out who owns one of those five to six-digit phone numbers. So, the first thing is to go to the usshortcodedirectory.com. Once you’re on the page, the landing page,
you’re going to want to click “Short Code Directory.” This is a directory of over 8,000 different
short codes in the United States. So, the first thing you’re going to want to
do here, is you’re going to either type in the short code, so that’s the five to six-digit
phone number that you’re trying to look up to see who owns that short code, or if you
want to, you can type in the brand name and see which short code that brand is using. I’m going to show you both examples. So, for example, let’s search for the short
code 32665. I’m going to just click “Enter” here. And what it’s going to do, it’s going to filter
out all of the short codes, and you’re going to be able to see that this is Facebook’s
short code, 32665. And when I open their profile page, it’s going
to give me a lot of information about the short code. Now, let’s say I wanted to search for a brand,
but I didn’t know the short code number and that’s what I was trying to look for. I would type the brand name into the “Search”
box here, click “Enter,” and then it’s going to bring me up Chipotle’s short code, which
is 888222. That’s a six-digit short code. As you’ll see here, some short codes actually
have images which will show a person how the brand is actually using the short code. This one has a lot of images, so you can get
a lot of ideas about, you know, how the brand is using it, some of their strategy, things
of that nature. What’s interesting, too, about the U.S. Short Code Directory is, you can write a review
about the short code. Those will appear at the bottom of the screen. You can also report spam. So, if you’re receiving text message spam,
you can report it by just clicking on that button, and we’ll take you to spamresponse.com,
which is connected to the wireless carriers, so they can look into the spam issue from
that specific short code. So, that’s it. If you’re interested in finding out who owns
a short code or what short code a brand owns, visit usshortcodedirectory.com, click “Short
Code Directory,” and then essentially just type in whatever the short code is or the
brand name that you’re looking for. Hopefully, that helps. Again, my name is Derek Johnson with tatango.com.
