Verizon 10DLC

What’s happening?

Verizon Local A2P Route Go-Live Dates:

  • MMS – Tuesday, January 14, 2020
  • SMS – Saturday, February 1, 2020

This was the first of many anticipated 10DLC carrier routes that will bring about greater predictability and reliability for high volume, A2P traffic over local numbers.

What do I need to know?

Verizon will begin blocking application-to-person (A2P) MMS and SMS sent over legacy person-to-person (P2P) routes, based on the CTIA guidelines.

Note: As you access these new routes, you will incur a new fee for all messages sent via the 10DLC route. This fee will be a direct pass through of Verizon’s surcharge.

What do I need to do?
