For business texting, there are different options for phone numbers. Your current landline number is a 10-digit local phone number. Shortcode and toll-free both require a new number to send and receive messages. The benefits of using your local number are that it is recognizable and unchanging. Across phone calls and text, messaging your phone number is the same. Customers can easily know what number to text. Local numbers appear more recognizable and trustworthy.
