    I sent a text of "HAITI" to 90999 like it's posted everywhere, but I get an error "this shortcode has expired" or something like that. I've read elsewhere it's a sprint issue. Am I the only one, and does someone have a fix?

    I donated two days ago and had no problems. I know they also accepted the code "HELP"

    Huh, I'll do it again, and if it did go through the first time I don't mind going again.

    I had no problem, just make sure after you get the confirmation that you donated that you text stop to the # because I believe that it is a recurring charge.
    Unless of course you plan on donating each month.

    I will have to say this donating through text message is brilliant. It has created a record amount of donations. I love it when I see technology being used this way. I donated 2 days ago with no issues.

    No it's not. It just means, if you read it, that you will get text messages (I think it said up to 4 per month) about progress being made. I opted to receive them, and I think it is a nice followup to making a donation.

    Yeah I've been telling everyone I can, including someone in line at the DMV yesterday. She had already donated!

    It is an excellent way to donate and Im glad I did. I wasnt sure about the recurring charge.
    I reread the text I received and you are right about the updates, but it really should be noted that it is only a one time charge.

    I text 'YELE' to 501501 twice on two different days and got the same error as the OP?

    Are you supposed to receive a confirmation after the second confirming "YES" txt? I assumed I'd get something to verify the donation went through.

    Yes. I did. After the second one I replied stop and got another one saying I won't be messaged anymore.

    it hasn't worked for me. I get the same "this shortcode has expired" msg. It happens for all shortcodes, even before the donation thing. I thought it was a Sprint thing but apparently most of yall aren't having this problem. Sprint had no explanation.

    Ive been having problems w/ the shortcode for months!

    Nobody wants to help me either, every time I post this i just get "it works for me".

    I have chalked it up to a patch problem! not sure which as I dont use shortcode often at all so I just gave up.

    Maybe youll have better luck getting help on this one than I did!

    Yeah its really strange. Well I dont have any patches or anything like that, just a few homebrew apps.

    I just did it & it went through fine. The message says to "reply STOP to cancel." Sounds like if you reply STOP that the charge is cancelled, not the future messages.

    Well I know when I had my treo I called and had a restriction placed on my account for certain texts that carried a charge with them. I would assume its removed? I know I cant get any conformation texts via shortcode or verification texts from websites such as yahoo, or evite. anytime i hit send verification code to cell nothing happens?
