Identified
On November 30th, mobile carriers (specifically Verizon) began enforcing the 10 Digit Long Code verification mandate which requires all businesses to register and verify their use case for their text line. The carrier can block the line if businesses are not registered and verified. Verizon is blocking all non-registered, non-verified lines from sending text messages from a landline number to their mobile customers.

Textel is not causing this directly, but they can help you to submit the appropriate forms. The form that must be completed must include the business EIN, legal and DBA name, the use case of the line, and a few more questions. Carriers are trying to mitigate scammers and protect us all from spam.
