In some countries, it is possible to replace the ‘From’ name that displays to the recipient on their phone with a more friendly alphanumeric substitute. You can control the SMS ‘From’ name on your Configuration page. Click your user name at the top right, then Settings. On the Settings page click the Configuration option.
