Premium MT SMS - The United States of America

Premium "mobile terminated" SMS messaging is available in the United States of America. This is a profitable way to generate revenue by sending a message to the consumer's mobile handset. We can advise you on all your options for billing in the United States of America.

Direct Operator Billing

We are excited to bring Direct Operator Billing in the United States of America. This allows you to bill consumers without using SMS. The charge will be taken off their phone bill and does not require the sending or receiving of text messages.

Number Lookup (HLR)

Enhance your txtNation service in this region by using our Number Lookup service, which is available in the United States of America and many other countries. Our Number Lookup service allows you to find out the network operator and other details about the consumer's mobile phone. This can be helpful in tailoring your txtNation service to consumers in the United States of America.


We offer Long Codes and or Virtual SIMs in the United States of America, which is more international than Short Codes. This allows you to receive messages from consumers around the world from a the United States of America-based telephone number. You cannot use a Virtual SIM to bill consumers. Premium services require a Short Code.


txtNation allows you to build a fully customised mobile billing service. If you require a mobile billing solution without the need for development, try our ready-made JunglePay widget, which you can create in just minutes.

Compliance matters

Wherever you operate mobile services, you must obey local telecommunication regulations. We can advise you on any aspect of your mobile campaign or billing service. Regulators publish guidelines that must be fully understood before you can use our platform. Operating a mobile service in one country may be very different to running one elsewhere.
