- Vonage customers using a Shared Short Code, must migrate SMS traffic to either a 10DLC, Toll Free SMS Number, or Dedicated Short Code.
- Vonage customers using our Shared Short Code API must migrate to either our SMS API or Verify API

- Why did my PIN code get sent from a phone number?
- Why are long codes used on the 2FA short code API?
Some carriers have strict restrictions on the use of short codes. We are seeing better conversions when using long codes on those carriers. As a result, we use a combination of short codes and long codes (i.e. a LVN (long virtual number)) routes on our 2FA short code API to maximise delivery.
When a LVN route is being used, Acceptd/Not Applicable delivery status will be shown.
