Hi there. I can help.

Please send me a private message with your name, telephone numbers requesting the change and the short codes you would like enabled. We can make the change for you today.

Please remember some short code require an additional rate per usage from the 3rd party company. This charge, if applicable, will appear on your next month's invoice.

Re: Unblock short code texting

I have tried texting to 9999 and type allow then the short code - I still get the msg 1051.  I get the short code texts from Sprint just fine but not from my bank.

Re: Unblock short code texting

You have to text to 9999 the actual short code for your bank that you want to allow...example type:

Phone number to text:  9999

Then type in the body of the text:

allow 64773

This is just an example so you need to use the short code for your actual bank (they will give it to you).  If you don't want to simply allow each service individually, then call Sprint and they can allow all short codes through.  But as of today I don't know of a command that you can send from your phone that will allow all codes though...you have to call Sprint for that.

I hope this helps.

Re: Unblock short code texting

This doesn't work - i have tried it several times.  It says it is allowed but when I attempt to use that code I get an error saying short codes are not allowed.
