    Until recently I've recently been sending bulk SMS's within the UK using Tesco sim cards, you could top up just £10 and then send 5000 sms's per sim card in about 3 hours via SMS Gee. Problem I'm encountering is that they have capped the daily send limit to 400 sms.

    Giff Gaff sims offer 3000 sms's per £10 top up but they keep cutting off the sim part way through the blasts so I'm not getting the full 3000 out of them as they keep detecting it's for non personal use.

    Does anyone know of the best value Pay as you go sim cards to now use for bulk blasting in the UK?

    I think spamming should be discouraged by every company. It is getting spammy in mobile marketing also.

    just wondering how you found out they capped you at 400. Was there an alert?

    its truly not unlimited if you are getting capped

    Can't believe you are still using that crap, how are your deliverable rates like? go direct with the aggregators and you can hit 10 to 50 million per day.

    Your numbers are peanuts.

    Even though mobile companies advertise unlimited services they are capped under a fair usage policy, mainly to prevent spammers because the fair usage limit is definitely more than a regular person would use.

    We don't need to SMS blast 50 million per day, theirs only 65 million people in the UK.

    To get the conversions I need for my business I need to hit just 20k per day.
