SMS 10DLC Compliance without an EIN


I'm late to the party on this and just figured out that I can't send texts anymore. I never realized this was a requirement of mine.


How do I create a brand when I am a sole proprietor without an EIN.  This is not required for tax purposes for my business, so I don't plan to get an EIN. 

I tried to use my SSN - probably a dumb move - but that was rejected. Now what do I do? Anyone? Anyone? 

I keep emailing support with no response. Really upset right now. 


Also - how long does the approval process take??? Weeks???  I read that somewhere.
