Should I be able to get SMS Text Messages from online sites like Fandango, Microsoft, etc?

    Right now texting from numbers that are less than 10 digits (shortcode messaging) requires MMS capability which FreedomPop does not support yet. Please be patient, for the time being try using Google Voice.

    Hi, Fandango asks for my phonenumber, area code included, so I am giving it 10 digits. I'm pretty sure that Fandango and things that will SMS you are using SMS, not MMS. Should giving my 10 digit phone-number to Fandango work? Thanks.

    Asking for 10 digit number 'seems' that it should be ok.

    Try on another phone ( not FP ) , when they message you, is it from a ten digit number or some short number ?

    @Karl Nicholas‌ If they text you from a non-10 digit number its MMS. If its 10 digit then you're fine.
