Short code texting?
Does anyone else have issues texting shortcodes (the 5 digit codes that seem to mostly be used for commercial and promo purposes)? For example, Arby's occasionally runs a promo where if you text BEEF to ARBYS (27297), you got a free roast beef sandwich. Or one of the local radio stations now has a shortcode that you can text requests to. Or in the movie theater here, they now have a thing where Sprint customers can text something to a certain shortcode and receive something for the concession stand (upgrade from medium to large on your popcorn, etc). But none of these shortcodes work for me, even the Sprint one. Whenever I do tryt o do this, I always get a message back saying "The shortcode you are attempting to use has expired and is no longer a valid shortcode. Msg 1051"

Looks like this is a Sprint specific issue.
There's plenty of ramblings and ranting on this blog post about the issue, but near the end, it does seem to suggest a fix for the problem.
