What is toll-free text messaging?


Jason Sommerset


Toll-free messaging is the sending and receiving of text messages (SMS and MMS) from a toll-free number (such as those starting with 888, 877, 866, 855, 844, 833, and 800). Toll-free text messaging is classified as application-to-person (A2P) as described in the CTIA best practiceswhich allow these types of messages to be sent at higher message-per-second rate limits – exactly like those previously reserved for short codes.
