What are Short codes
Short codes services in India
Short codes are mobile numbers that are significantly shorter than regular mobile numbers (usually 10 digits) which are used for SMS, MMS and Interactive Voice Services. The idea behind short codes is to make them easy to remember. For example: Indiatimes has the short code 5-8888 in India, while Star India has 5-7825 (i.e. 5-STAR on a keypad). Messages sent to a short code can be toll free or – in most cases – more expensive than a regular SMS.
Short codes are used for buying content, interacting with a help menu, voting on TV programmes, listening to mobile radio, and a host of other services. Telecom operators, VAS service providers and TV channels use Short Codes for generating revenue.
