    Best Carriers to Send SMS from....



    StraightTalk (AT&T)
    ReadySim (T-mobile)
    TalkForGood (Verizon)
    TotalCallMobile (Sprint)
    EcoMobile (Sprint)



    ReadySim is GREAT for international, just insert sim, text a zip code to a given # and your sim is activated, NO information needed at all, no name, address, phone #...etc its designed for travelers and drug dealers (according to the company reps themselves) and you can get 3 day unlimited sims for $8 easily, 7 day unlimited for $11 from dealers.





    Sending international is 10x better than USA for a few reasons...
    > FTC just sued the pants off 29 people for sms spam
    > Nobody sued for international sms
    > Carriers love to ghost your sms in the USA
    > Sending to the USA results in your sim getting banned 10x faster
    > Sending international often converts 10x better
    > Sending international often your sims are never banned.






    T-Mobile (and all their MVNO such as ReadySim, SimpleMobile) don't really ban sims however their filters are insane, they will block your message before its even accepted at the cell tower. Most .com urls are pre-blocked and even a $9 domain only last about 500 sms before they auto-block that. The trick I found is using bit.ly and rotating about 700+ urls (free script makes these in seconds) in addition you need to rotate your content such as...

    {Hi|Hello|Good Morning} {you're|your} {phone|cell|mobile} {#|number} %N (inserts recipient phone # via token) {take a look at|check out|view this|take a peak at} {bit.ly/12345|bit.ly/93849|bit.ly/83848|bit.ly/48574|....etc}

    And the trick is to use as much spintax as possible AND to use the most generic words as possible. Dont even think about "free trial" or "work from home"...etc. Anything specific gets auto-banned, words like: hello, the, today ..etc will never be banned. BUT if your message is accepted and shows sent successfully then it means its truly sent and is NEVER ghosted.





    AT&T (and all their MVNO such as SimpleTalk, H2O, AirVoice) they don't use content bans like T-Mobile does HOWEVER their ghosting nazis and often can start ghosting in as little as 500 sms sent. So with them, you don't really have to worry about spintax, however if it shows sent successfully that does NOT mean it really was, AT&T may have ghosted it. Also AT&T will ghost incoming sms from other carriers if they see too much volume from that 1 number.






    Some safety tips...
    > Never purchase sim cards with PayPal
    > Never buy sim cards off eBay
    > Never send a test sms to your personal cell.
    > If your within the USA, send international... trust me on this one!!!
    > Buying this with CASH is king, there are sim dealers all over the USA even in small towns, just research!!!!
    > Be VERY careful about where you buy your modems from.





    Best Software: SmsCaster
    Required Addon: Custom software to allow spintax and tokens such as phone # token


    Best Modems:
    Shockwave 308 Unlocked for GSM (75-150/min)
    Motorola Droid X for CMDA (75/min)

    Thank you very much for sharing your experience in this field.

    Can you also explain how do you make money with it? Do you put your CPA offer in the sms?

    Seems pretty interesting... I know you've already shared lots but can you give some hints as to where you're getting the numbers and how you're monetizing? I can imagine someone making like $100 a day with less than 1 percent conversion but wouldn't it be risky to scale too much?

    "Your entry last month has WON! Go to Domain.com and enter 8495 to claim your FREE $1,000 Best Buy gift card today.

    That exact sms has generated well over $500,000 (combined among affiliates).... it's also how these same people are being sued by the FTC for sms spam and deceptive business practices.... so I would NOT recommend you do this.

    Send international sms in a different language...
    > Sims last 50x longer
    > Conversions 5x higher
    > Some countries don't really know what sms spam is, so they are more likely to convert
    > Less filters to pass
    > FTC has NOT gone after 1 single affiliate just doing international sms only


    I know MANY people whom did $10,000 per day from sending SMS to free email submit offers (BestBuy, Target, Walmart, Costco). Most affiliates made between $1,500 - $4,000 per day almost pure profit. BUT again, these people are currently being sued by the FTC



    In SMS its all about quantity... most people making 1-10k daily were sending 300-500k sms per HOUR

    Thanks you very much for answering my question.
    I like how you know so much about these field. ;)

    So for this to work you need:

    1. SIM´s that don´t require you to show your real identity
    2. Send the international sms in different languages

    I have dozens SIM cards here from my Country Austria which are prepaid and have no connection with my identity. I also have 2x 16 port and 2x 32 port GSM Modems from china, which have problems with calls, but i think they will do a good job for sms. For sending i will use a software or my self written code which can send sms. Is this the way to go or is something missing? You wrote the sms needs to be send internationally. Whats wrong if you send them local, besides quicker SIM banns?

    My question is what should the sms text contain and who is gonna paying me? Should i do the: "Your entry last month has WON! Go to Domain.com and enter 8495 to claim your FREE $1,000 Best Buy gift card today." method but just cover up my footprints better or something else?

    How can the FTC find you? Do they call the company from the offer you send or try to locate you through your SIM card? I am just confused with the "money makaing" part of this.
    Hope you can understand me.

    If your not located within the USA then the FTC part is of no concern to you.

    GSM modems suck, especially those from China, they send about 10/min while a Shockwave 308 can send 70-140/min depending on signal strength.

    The text should contain whatever you want it to, something to direct user to a mobile optimized website to complete your offer. I just posted one as an example which generated well over $500,000 last year.

    I recommend Shockwave 308 modems + SmsCaster + Custom tool to allow Spintax and tokens.

    Thanks for replying... Some more questions

    If I purchase readysim can I set the SMS station up in another country?
    What domain and hosting do you use to ensure privacy?

    ReadySim uses T-Mobile cell towers, that's all I know about how they work or where they work. If you dont get T-Mobile signal you wont get ReadySim coverage.

    And use common privacy when getting a domain, but if your within the USA, best to buy with a VCC, however the FTC is smart and will follow the money trail, if your outside of USA then you dont have to worry.

    I have not tested every phone company in the entire world so I would have no idea. I just know what works in the USA. So you need to buy up sim cards from 20 different phone companies in your area and test them all and figure out which one works for you.

    I know this is an old thread but the OP hasn't been on BHW for almost a week...

    Is it possible to use ReadySim with Mail to SMS since its on T-Mobile's network?

    Use ReadySim with Mail to Sms? Thats not even a question, or it doesn't make sense. Mail to sms = smtp thus you dont need sim cards but its junk. Sim card = true sms. Sim + SmsCaster + Shockwave 308 modem is the key

    300-500k sms an hour. Wow, I thought I was a big sms person previously but these guys beat me hands down.

    I know a 8 port GSM modem does about 5k to 6k an hour. So roughly they were doing 100 GSM modem?
    Where did they get around the SMS charges?
