    I work as a nightclub promoter in a major city and we use mass texting to spread the word about events. The problem is in the past month or two we have noticed a lot lower response rate to our texts. In speaking to a lot of people I've figured that many of our texts aren't going through.

    I know there are bulk sms services, but the problem is we need the sms to come from our personal numbers to respond to questions, be able to call us, etc. I've looked into bulk sms services and it doesn't seem like this is an option. Right now we use Android phones and Blackberrys to send our sms's but this is obviously not getting a good delivery rate.

    Does anyone know a way to solve this issue?

    Depending on what kind of text you are sending, some operators may filtering or block this message. I'm doing promotions too, for almost 2 years. I'm from the same start with the same SMS company. I can PM you to send you details of company that i use, so you can closely discuss about your requirements with some person in that company.

    I am also having this problem. I think it may be due to filtration by service providers. I will update if i find a solution

    Why don't you make a custom app with twilio that supports spintax? At least that way you can vary the message and use multiple "from" numbers to prevent getting blocked/
