Get started faster without all the hassles

Whether you’re a business or an individual, we all hate having to wait for things. With Bandwidth’s A2P Messaging, waiting is a thing of the past. While short codes can take weeks (or even months) to get set up, Bandwidth’s toll-free messaging gets rid of all the red tape and allows you to provision numbers within seconds, so you can get started immediately.

Use the numbers you already have, without porting them over

You’re already using toll-free numbers to communicate with your customers, but with A2P Messaging from Bandwidth you can easily add SMS functionality to your existing toll-free numbers (even ones that you don’t have with us) to send messages to your customers from the same number they already know to call you on, eliminating confusion and saving you time and money provisioning new numbers specifically for messaging.


Toll-free SMS gives you the throughput you need to send and deliver messages on-time-- without all the extra carrier surcharges that short codes include. Not familiar with the pricing breakdown? We can help clear things up. Use our calculator to see how the additional carrier short code delivery fees can add up to serious savings when you choose toll-free.

It’s called toll-free for a reason…
