Short codes

  • Short codes are usually 5 digit numbers that can be used for services like voting on TV shows or donating to charity whilst paying through your monthly mobile bill.

There are two types of short codes:

  • Voice short codes (e.g. calls to vote on TV shows, such as X-Factor or Strictly Come Dancing)
  • SMS short codes (e.g. texts to competition entries, charity donations, text banking)
