T-Mobile often disables access to all short codes (5 and 6 digit phone numbers) from their handsets. If you are a T-Mobile customer, and you receive a message such as “Message Failed. Shortcode may have expired or shortcode texting may be disabled,” you may need to contact T-Mobile to enable your phone to send and receive messages from short codes. Nixle uses the 888777 short code to send you timely messages. Nixle does not charge for this service, but carrier message and data rates may apply. You may contact T-Mobile by dialing 611 on your cell phone or visiting www.tmobile.com.
With your $40/month MetroPCS, you will not recieve messages from shortcodes, such as 888777. To upgrade to a $45/month plan, please contact MetroPCS to upgrade your service.
