I have two questions and I didn't really think they were phone specific so I thought I would ask them here.

I've exhausted all search engines and other means, so I hope someone here can help.

How could someone go about getting a number set up for a service where people could text something to xyz abc 123, whatever for a service. Say they wanted to order a pizza they text pizza to 4137 and a pizza comes. These obviously aren't phone numbers, so how does one go about setting this up? Any clues?

Also what about * numbers. I know 411 911 611 etc are taken, but how would you go about getting another * number for a service.

Thanks so much for your help.
