    So I would like to send out about 10,000 texts a month. I have looked into other ways to do this and all the pricing seems to be beyond me. Does anyone know of software that will interface with a CDMA throw away phone from say MetroPCS to send out texts through their system?

    For $50 a month for the phone it would be worth it no?

    I have used SMSCaster GSM Enterprise with an old nokia 5110 with a prepaid sim, they also have a CDMA Version the software connects to phone through com1, it's a cheap mass SMS setup and works a treat - I have a keygen if needed

    Smscaster is not stable at all. Custom is the way togo!

    What do you mean custom? You have a custom script?

    There are CDMA phones where I live that cost $50 with a month of service and unlimited texting. You can literally walk in and tell them that your name is Heywood Jablowme

    I dont think GSM is as reliable here as CDMA is. Yes I can still go to any target store buy a GSM phone from at&t and activate it. That is another option.

    Someone make software that can interface with both types of phones and I'll buy it.

    I was thinking about adding this feature onto my text mailer, but then what would be the point? I mean, you can send free texts through smtp, or your own ISP in my software (if you want to include a link). So wouldn't you just choose the free method verse buying a throw away phone?

    Ah ok. I didn't see you mention that.

    Have you had any luck with spam texting? In the past I came to an agreement with myself that there is no way to safely monetize this method. It always failed when it came to the money trail. But I would be impressed if you could safely pull this off.

    How do you cross reference the service provider if you get a list of numbers?

    How do you mean?

    If you have software that interfaces with an actual phone what does it matter who the receiving service provider is?
