Short Code SMS services are premium rate services and cost more than standard text rates. The services are advertised on television, in magazines and newspapers and allow mobile users to send and receive SMS messages to and from information and content providers.

Some of the services will charge a premium over ordinary text messages when you send a message to the short code, for example a voting line. Other services will charge you to receive a text message, for example, news headlines, weather reports or horoscopes. These are known as subscription services.
