    I was wondering if I could find any kind of job where I can send out texts with ads and what not? I have unlimited texting so I could text all day long. Or do you have a list and a product that I can promote?

    OP, when you say you got unlimited text do you mean on your mobile plan(where they give you a hidden limitation- aka - fair usage) or a real system where you blast like 10k numbers in a go?

    I think so too. You see they don't usually tell you that its limited, but when you ask them, they will tell you -fair usage policy - or some stuff like that.

    Attn, OP, Anyways before you start blasting away, check the regulations in your country. It would be okay, if you can spoof/hide your phone number ID to the recipient. If not, I would check the regulations more closely.

    Oh how I would love to know successful method doing this and what the conversion is. I personally don't like spammy methods (read unsolicited anything). However, good luck to you.

    You know, If I could ever get a hold of Customer Service I would find out how many texts I can send. Think its maybe 5 or 600 a month, The only reason I ask about texting is because I had a friend who worked a company and he was getting paid 50 per text. Can't remember the name though.

    i would think it extremely rare that a company would pay you for txting. the chances of making much money at all from 600 txts per moth are pretty slim. not to mention how would they determine your pay and believe you actually sent the txts you were supposed to?

    Why not ask your friend which company was it?

    and then let me know when you find out :)
