    If anyone could please help me out, I am trying to find a decent script that allows users to send a sms text message from the webpage. Preferably a script that doesn't require the user to select the mobile carrier; since many people may not know the destination carrier.
    Looking for the price of...free lol

    Thanks in advance!

    using sms to spam is a good way to get into trouble, fast.
    mainly since they haven't opted into your mailing list.

    (i was gonna send out texts, but i was warned against it.)

    I'm also looking for a better script. Now that this is finally hitting mainstream there may be more coming out.

    I have a fully opt-in list of clients so texting them is NOT a problem.

    I must need to clarify... I am not looking to send out marketing related sms messages... I am looking for end users to be able to go to my website and send a text message to their friend.

    Yes, but as I mentioned before, I'd like to find a script that doesnt require the end user to choose the carrier

    viewing the source of the page and copying that section of script isnt getting everything needed... go ahead, take that code and see if you can get the form to come up...

    With all due respect that wasnt copied from the page source. That is the external javascript file.
    Although I didnt look through the code I did remove the first few lines as they just looked like formatting and added the <script> tags as I assumed you would try to dump it directly onto a webpage.

    You have to remember that MOST of the time when action is required server-side a script will only run properly when run 'from' a specific location i.e designated servers, or by a specific location (a specific domain, or even just page name) if different from script location.

    To save confusion here is the javascript file in its entirety ...
    Original File: text_messaging.js

    If you copy that into notepad and save as something like "sms.js" > Copy it to the root directory of your hosting a/c.

    Then in your webpage (i.e what shows in page source) add:

    i think we are now at a point just like the beginning of the .com boom only it's 100's of times bigger with text marketing. 4.7 billion mobiles says so vs 1.8 billion internet users.

    Well yes I do agree to an extent...

    The problem being that in order for advertisers to take it up, a pay-per-sale/lead type service will need to be implemented. Unlike the Internet, the infrastructure to sms the kind of numbers required would be far too costly.

    The type of thing you are probably thinking about is Blyk, which has now unfortunately folded... But was an amazing idea!

    still online... http://www.blyk.com

    is there any way around the 'no-spam' restriction on sms? i was told you can't contact someone unless they opt-in to your list first.

    can you (legally) piggyback on someone else's sms contact list? i want to advertise my services, but i don't want to spam.

    No im talking about the actual Blyk consumer service. It was closed down and I think the company was bought out by Orange to leech money from, running it simply as 'an sms advertising program' type of thing.

    Blyk started out in the UK as a mobile phone operator for 16-24 year olds. You had to have an invite code from a distributor or other Blyk customer before you could order a Simcard.

    What they did was give their customers 40-odd minutes of calls and 200-odd text's each month, completely FREE (no top-up required at all - so if you didnt go over this it never cost you anything).
    In return, they sold sms advertising to companies to generate revenue, and the customers would receive a couple of sms/mms advertisements each day.

    A pretty unique idea/service... I never saw anything like it before!
    But like I said, they closed down their mobile network, sold the company to Orange (I think) and Orange uses the Blyk infrastructure and name to run a SMS marketing division.
