Approval Process

The same applies to both shared codes and dedicated codes, see forum entry Greece - Premium SMS Requirements. There is no formal carrier or regulator approval process to run on our shared lines in Greece, 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. The typical time it takes to get your service approval form feedback is 1 week and it takes 1 week to get live once your CCF has been approved.
