Approval Process

The same applies to both shared codes and dedicated codes, see forum entry Hungary - Premium SMS Requirements. Other than a subscription service (see Service Types), there is no formal carrier or regulator approval process to run on our shared lines in Hungary, e.g. we dont have to apply to the carriers or the regulator to get you permission to go live. txtNation will however check your service when you submit your service description as part of the account setup procedure.
