We’ve Got Your Number: 24726

September 12, 2008 - 0 Comments

There’s so much happening from Cisco that sometimes I have a hard time keeping up, especially when I’m on the go. Fortunately, Cisco has a few mobile options to keep you connected. There’s our handy mobile site, of course, which you can access at (and usually your phone will auto-sense when you go to the main URL as well).And, our SMS service is really taking off. Today, you can subscribe to text alerts right to your phone on a range of topics such as:

  • Field notices
  • New and press releases
  • Security advisories and recommended responses
  • General security news
In the US and Canada, you’ll receive the message from the number 24726, which cleverly maps to “CISCO” on the phone keypad. All text messages for outside the US and Canada will originate from 447797801642. These numbers allow you to validate that a text message is from Cisco and not a third party. Our mobile marketing guru Steve Lau said it best in a recent internal web article: “Everything we do with SMS is designed to provide our customers with immediate information and create more intimacy.” Go to to sign up.Enjoy!
