    Just wondering what would be the best way to send SMS on a regular basis to cellphones. Doesn't need a permanent number but needs to be based on a desktop.

    You get services that offer it via online account but desktop software, I'm not sure.

    I remember back in the day there were programs that don't it for free, but maybe not these days.

    Having a bit of trouble finding a good one, most seem to be unavailable now.

    Any reason why it's got to be desktop based?

    it would be used by store owners to send a text to mobile phones ( customers ) they wanna have it on their desktop computers - so being a browser based app would work

    Can't they just have the website open on their desktop PC? I run my entire business from internet based apps and it works fine for me....

    gonna need more info to make a suggestion - there are tons of services that offer probably what you're looking for
    do you need these text messages to be answered (like for setting appointments)
    or do you just need to send out notifications (like for special sales)

    doesn't need a reply - but needs to be sent out in a timely efficient manner. I've tried a few free ones and they will ask for mobile carrier and / or not even send.

    Use an android emulator like bluestacks.

    Use it to download some texting app like textnow.

    Here you go.

    Don't bother with emulators. Also, if you're after multi sims then maybe get an sms modem as it's much cheaper than a voip gateway.
