    Hi all,

    Just like the title says, list of 11,000,000 active cell phone numbers I can send SMS messages to.


    Not really all the numbers, but the area codes, prefixes and ranges for each number.

    I was wondering if there was a program where I could input the parameters and achieve results like this (example):

    Input 434-335-2319 to 434-335-8972
    And the program produces in excel format, a list of every possible number in that range?


    Also what would be a good mass mailer to use to send these sms messages, I know how to do it through email , but I am not aware of good anonymous bulk mailers.


    Thanks for all the help, and wish me luck ;)

    you can generate the final part of the numbers using php and or excel your just incrementing the last number by one...

    now sending sms messages using the following will be a lot cheaper than paying for sms messages to 11 million phone numbers...

    now in some instances the phone companies allocate an email address to each phone in the form of number@cellphoneprovideremail.com sprint used to do number@sprintpc.com now they dont use it all because of spam, you can find lists of all the email domains, what you would need to is add the cellphone provider email domains to all the numbers, each number would have about 5 or 6 emails each for each provider for the first instance you try this... your just trying to find out which phone provider they are with by process of illimination...

    you would then email the entire list... then people would recieve text messages on their phone with your email... keep the email as short as possible i think you only get 160 characters....

    personally if you where to do this you could find yourself with a hefty legal bill! lol

    but if you where put a link to a dot mobi site and make sure you have some google dot mobi adsense in there in order to monetize your dot mobi sites...

    hth

    also remove your rejected emails from your list for your next round of emails to make it more efficient

    Thanks man,

    I know about how to send text through email like I mentioned in my original post. But the number generation is the part I am wondering about.


    Edit: Also know which numbers go to which provider. So finding that out wont be a problem

    sorry am not quite with it today full of a cold

    why not just use excel to generate the numbers?

    just do the follwoing:

    1) enter in first number in a cell
    2) in cell below increment the first number by one - hit enter
    3)select the two cells with your mouse, then if you place your mouse cursor on the bottom right corner of the 2nd cell, there should be a small black box... your pointer will turn to a + symbol, click and drag it down it will start to create the rest of your numbers for you... all incremented by one digit...

    this is the simplest method i can think of to generate the numbers...

    sorry its hard to describe it as opposed to showing you

    you could do multiple columns like this too i think which may be quicker

    not sure how to automate 11million though...

    let me know how you get on - i used to be really into mobile marketing, with dynamic wap sites etc before there was a dot mobi domain, i did dabble a bit with dot mobi sites and dot mobi guidelines, even did the first proper dot mobi site using joomla to meet all dot mobi standards lol i think i was a bit before my time trying to market it here in the US though... not moved on to other things...

    people still dont understand the concept of it though especially here in the states, people are only starting to really use sms over the past 2 years, whilst in europe they where texting like crazy about 5 years ago!

    thanks

    you can order bulk sim cards from china that each have like 100 texts or something. They you could probably write a program to connect to a phone via bluetooth, send 100 texts, switch sim card, send 100 more texts etc

    juts an idea

    I think email will work better, not currently working on this. But its nice to have a backup. I think a good cpa offer and these numbers could do very well.

    Hi there,

    just curious. I know this post is about three years old but I'm also in search of a list of numbers. Any news? I have access to a program that will allow mass texting to unlimited number of contacts so now I just need to get the ideal list.
