The idea is simple. The subscriber sends an SMS to a short four-digit number (for example, 1129). The mobile operator charges them a certain message fee set for this short number (usually it is more than the cost of an ordinary outgoing SMS). Message information is communicated to the provider, processed by them, and the subscriber receives the ordered service.
Short numbers usually consist of four digits. Every mobile operator allocates numbers independently, but it is possible to select the same short number with all operators. Every short number is assigned fee which the user pays for sending an SMS to this number. The provider selects the fee based on the operator's rate schedule. The price is typically the same for subscribers of all operators. The fee is fixed and does not depend on the text of SMS sent by the user.
It is possible to assign a new number for provider services or use one of our existing numbers. In the first case, the short number is used only for the services of this provider (dedicated or unique number). In the second case, one and the same number is shared by several providers (shared number) with prefixes used in SMS texts to differentiate messages addressed to different services. For example, if an SMS sent by the user to such short number starts with "A", it is processed by one provider, and if a message starts with "Z", then it is processed by another provider. In both cases, one and the same four-digit short number is used in the networks of all operators.
