    4 digit text numbers

    wward
      How do you text to a 4 digit text number? I have mobile banking with my bank and they use a 4 digit text number. I am also collecting Coke rewards points which have to be text to a 4 digit text number.

          Simply put the numbers in the contact area of a new text message or create anew contact with the 4 digit number in the phone number space it will send just like any other text

            It still isn't working. I put the text number in instead of just selecting it from my contacts, but it still isn't working.

              I believe those type of numbers are normally a computer generated message that is usually not intended to be replied to.  Usually if it is possibke to respond to the message there is a followup number for you to be able to use...  You may want to try to contact the company and verify this for sure.

                i was going off experience with my local radio station they have a 4 digit text number for contests and requests but i guess if its just a messenger service there is no replying.

                  Thank you all for your input.

                   

                  I was not able to duplicate the issue, as I successfully texted 2653 (COKE) and received a response. If you are still experiencing these difficulties, I recommend contacting coke at mycokerewards.com (that address was included in the response I received), or reaching out to your banking institution for the correct address for texting. 

                   

                  Thanks,

                    When you state the messages aren't working, are you receiving an error message, or does the text simply fail? What are the numbers to which you are trying to send these messages?

                     

                    Thanks again,

                      Just an FYI I found there seems to be some places that just can't communicate with the droidX.

                      Using the codes I could not get anything from a local store or sonic or a local movie theater.

                      Worked just fine on an old phone, just not the droidX.  Never did find out the reason.
