    Anyone else here notice when sending sms in bulk with sim cards that after a few thousand sms the messages are sent successfully but not delivered to the end user? Any ideas on how to avoid this?

    Yes, stop using sim cards. That's the only way. GSM is dead.

    I know your trying to be funny but actually your 100% right. I found a way to send true sms without sim cards and no more ghosting or disabled sims.

    No, i'm not actually trying to be funny bro. Been sending since October of last year. Used GSM and a few other methods for sending. GSM is one of the 'easiest' ways to send but its also the worse. Just trying to help you out! I suggest you keep sending with your GSM modems while they are still PROFITABLE but in the mean time you should use most of your time to think of other ways to send... GSM is only getting worse. To many people are using it because its the easiest method, ya buy some sims, some 'equipment', some 'software' and your good to go! (We wont go into specifics ofcourse.) I've been developing a plan of attack on this for a month now. There are some good alternatives out there, they cost a little more than GSM but aslong as you have a really strong EPC your fine. Good luck to you bro! If you wanna talk add me on skype - "SMS.CPA"

    Pointing out the alternatives on here will simply kill the method much, much sooner.

    That said, added you on Skype so I can discuss with you further and toss some ideas around.

    Would you guys mind telling me where you are getting your bulk cell numbers from and how much a typically campaign is costing you? Thanks.
