Toll free numbers are any phone numbers that begin with 800, 888, 877, 866, 855, 844 or 833. As per the FCC, toll free numbers are traditionally telephone numbers that can be dialed from landlines with no charge to the person placing the call. Although these numbers used to be commonly used for telephone calls, more recently text enabled toll free numbers are being used for effective SMS marketing.
Put simply, if you don’t verify your TFN, you won’t be able to send messages from that number. To prevent spam and other types of abuse, United States mobile carriers require new toll-free numbers to be registered. Because of this, Sheet Gurus SMS, as well as all other business texting services require verifications when acquiring a number.
At Sheet Gurus SMS, we’ve strived to make the registration and verification process as simple and straightforward as possible. In order to give our customers the highest level of confidence (as well as the fastest path to approval) possible, we’ve integrated AI into our verification process. Our AI integration is trained to take a look at your verification information and make an assessment on how likely you are to pass the US carrier’s verification process. By doing this first pass internally at Sheet Gurus SMS, our users enjoy the highest quality of submissions that are reflected in their ability to get registered toll free numbers quickly.
