Re: Sending Text Message



fixed

The Amazon service might be useful if the OP plans to send the same
message to everybody (or at least to identified groups) as you
create topics and subscribers to those topics...ideal for IT
monitoring for example.

I assume however based on the 24K in messages, that each message he
sends would only go to one receiver...order status to his customers
for example.

Didn't look at the other service...

Think you've got two choices...
1) Store the carrier...
2) Pay $$$ for an SMS gateway service....

I also do that but in this case I do not know the carrier. But this is a nice list of 9 of the over 1,000 cell phone carriers nationwide.

Alltel ##########@message.alltel.com

Nextel ##########@messaging.nextel.com

Replace the ########## with the actual cell phone number.
