Virtual phone number

To communicate effectively with your users, you need virtual phone numbers.
  • Provisioning virtual numbers in the same market as your users increases the chances that the numbers will be interacted with and that their messages will be read
  • With 85 countries currently supported, Vonage offers the broadest reach of virtual numbers from across the globe
  • Prior to provisioning, our numbers are rigorously tested and screened to confirm their capabilities and functionality*
  • Our virtual phone numbers are quarantined and aged appropriately to remove the risk of cross talk from any previous users

  • US 10 DLC allows businesses to provide a higher quality of the delivery of your messages originating from long codes while continuing to protect end-users from unwanted messages. (For messages sent to USA numbers only.)

The new 10 Digit Long Code (10DLC) standard is a sanctioned solution for A2P messaging that all major US carriers have adopted to deliver better customer experience along with business benefits such as brand accountability and more reliable deliverability.

  • Multiple use cases. Use 10DLC to send your important alerts, marketing messages, 2FA notifications and more.

  • Customize your 10DLC setup. Structure your brands, campaigns, and numbers the way you want to when messaging your US audience.

  • Be more personal by texting with your business or local number. Texting with a local 10DLC number fosters trust and allows businesses to streamline their communications.

  • Use your existing ten digit phone numbers. Businesses can send more messages by registering their existing phone number, and won’t have to pay for an additional number to get 10DLC capabilities.

  • Higher message throughput and better deliverability. A2P sanctioned 10DLCs can send up to 30 messages per second and are registered directly with the carriers. *Higher throughput can be requested for select use cases.

  • Register now. Whether it’s your local business lines or your virtual lines, our experts can help you start registering your numbers’ brands and campaign use cases for 10DLC messaging to US phone numbers.
