+1 (747) 444-3548 and 37607 have been moved to the US shortcode 22333, as we work to resolve these numbers. For customers primarily in Canada, we recommend changing to the service area with the number +1 (780) 800-5606. For customers primarily in the US, including US education customers, reactivating polls will show 22333 in lieu of +1 (747) 444-3548 or 37607.
