You don't need a "short code". Just publish your full international
format phone number...
+1nnnnnnnnnn etc.. Should do it? (+1 is the US international prefix)
That number will be unique to your SIM card, regardless of the phone it
If you look at incoming normal SMS text messages, you should find the
full international number used to identify the originating phone, if the
user has allowed it.
