    Im in the middle of creating a service wich also involves text messaging to my clients.

    I checked out a couple providers like ipipi but i need a provider that doesnt include a 'this txt was created trough ipipi' bs. So only my plain text.

    You guys have any ideas if what reliable providers i should check out?

    TY

    Hi Bartono,


    As far as i know fortumo only does sms gateways/payments etc.

    I need a normal sms provider to send messages that only contains my text.

    Are you looking for bulk sms provider? There are some good sms service providers, which provide bulk sms at cheap rates.

    Hi bro, thanks for your reply.

    Yeah i already know and there are shitloads of em so thats why my question was rather if someone could tell me a name of one that also doesnt place any of their txt in MY messages ;)

    I think it just doesnt look professional that when i am sending my clients a txt message and it ends with 'powered by blabla'.

    Maybe i am not clear enough, could be i am not a native speaker and learned english by myself trough the years lolz...

    FREE Option - use phpmailer or swiftmailer send email to #######@carrier-domain.com

    There's a list online -- but vmobl.com I believe is virgin mobile. Downside is you need people to give you their phone # and select the carrier from a dropdown.

    it is also more branded -- it shows up as from user@yourdomain.com

    Cheers,

    Maybe I can help you make sending SMS bulk to US. SMS message will only contain your text and nothing more.
    Please, send me PM.

    Does this work for international users/countries or just USA/Europe?
    Or, put it simple - where does it work, and where it doesn't :)

    Do not bother using smtp to text message. Trust me its JUNK and you will NOT be able to deliver any type of quantity, maybe 5-10 per hour. Twilio is also junk for spamming, they will shut down your account and hold your funds for 90 days.

    If your texting to TRUE optin numbers then something like limecellular or avidmobile which cost $0.02/sms sent. If your spamming dont even think about any free/paid providers that will work.

    I don't know --I use it for incoming leads on different sites so I can call/follow up immediately.

    However, I am also a Lime Cellular user, and love it as well. If you need an sms platform, you can partner w/ me on the cheap. I'm only using them in the usa though. Just pm me.

    Also agree w/ not spamming--you will get shut down + legal issues from the FCC. All SMS must be opt-in w/ a line that says "Standard text-messaging rates may apply" on all advertisements.

    The problem is were on a blackhat forum and most users are here to SPAM users :) Most legit sms senders wont be on a blackhat forum. For spamming you need modems, not any paid service.

    Not all people on here are spammers or even blackhat, some are grey hat...personally I hang out more than anything to get the free downloads -plus there's a whole section devoted to offline. My main business is all mainstream, but I have used free downloads to get started then went on and bought the item later--like wp themes and what not..

    I use Lime Cellular and ALL my sms business is opt-in, and 100% legitimate marketing. Good marketing ideas can show up anywhere, so I'm on just about every money making forum there is Warriors, ***, BHW, BBF, IJ, etc...
