Short Codes on RIng Plus

kaykatz 569 May 24, 2016 at 06:34 PM
Do short codes work on RingPlus? I have MMS enabled but still can't send short codes. I am using an LG Tribute II, ZTE Speed and ZTE Warp. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I tried the Redbox code and it works (pop-up reminds me that, if sent, will cost. I think I'm on a RP plan that charges 4 cents). I can't understand why the bus company's short code doesn't work. I know it works on my Verizon and T-mobile phones. Guess I'll have to carry 2 phones. Thanks for your help.

Short codes can function sporadically on many MVNO's. You can do much nicer things with apps/websites for public transit than sms services especially if your transit authority is well integrated with google maps.

I haven't used a bus shortcode service in a really long time, but I'm also now in a city with a fewer and far less reliable bus routes.
