I have tried to enter the Sprint contest on the Survivor TV show for the past 3 weeks and I have called Sprint 3 times on this issue. The short Code 54555 is rejected with a MSG 1051 Message Failed Shortcode may have expired or shortcode texting may be blocked on your account MSG 1051. Sprint confirmed that shortcode is NOT blocked on my account and it still doesn't work. "Rebooted" iphone like Sprint Tech Support suggested, that didn't work. Finally Sprint Tech support duplicated the error and said it doesn't work with iPhone. You mean to tell me Sprint can't make short codes work on the iPhone or did I get a "goofy" Tech support person too lazy to really solve the problem?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Could you please private message me so I can look further into this and see if I can fix this issue?
This isn't working on my Iphone 4s at all either - I've tried this numerous times since getting the I phone in February and it completely stinks that for $150 a month I can't short text for offers!!!!! c'mon sprint get with it!! HOW do I fix this mess????

Please send me a private message and I will be glad to look into your issues with short codes. I may just have to unblock you.
How do I fix this? Just got an iPhone 4S at the end of July, and I can't text short codes, and when I try and setup SMS on my google calendar, I never get the code.
