    You're looking for an SMS Payment Gateway, they take up to 50% and are generally only good for amounts of $10 or less.

    True. I dont know any names off the top of my head, simply Google "mobile billing" or "sms billing. While the amounts for single transactions are usually limited to $5 or $10, it is definitely possible to set up a daily SMS that costs, say $1, which makes $30 a month for the subscription, if you are going to make some daily content such as daily jokes, horoscopes, etc.

    These companies do, however, take a large share of the charge, up to 50%. Furthermore, depending on the carrier and country, it can take 2-3 months before you get paid, because they have to collect the money from the carrier, then process it and send it to you.
