U.S. mobile carriers want to protect customers from spam and improve message speed and deliverability for businesses.
It’s why they’re requiring all local phone numbers to be registered.
To achieve this, carriers need a simple way to enable registration. That’s where TCR comes into play.
TCR is a third-party organization that works with carriers like AT&T and T-Mobile and text messaging providers like SimpleTexting to register local phone numbers.
Businesses are then vetted and given a “trust score” by TCR that determines the maximum number of messages they can send and the speed they can be sent at. (You can learn more about Trust Scores here.)
Can I register my number directly on The Campaign Registry?
We register your local number on your behalf. If you’d like to learn more about registering your number with SimpleTexting, we recommend you read this article.
It’s important to note that you can’t register directly on TCR and then come back to us with your number.
However, if you’ve already registered your local number with another SMS provider, we can re-register it with SimpleTexting.
