What is SMS
I used www.igrep.com for the first time today and did a search for SMS, this came up which I through was interesting enough to share with other Dev Shed users on here who may not have seen the article before:

Just a quick thought, I know this is an old thread but does anyone who's posted know of any good ready to roll sms or prs / ivr services?
I'm looking for a service in a box where all we'd have to do is promote. Things like horoscopes, live chat, sporting tips, tarot, wind up calls and so on.

quick follow up to this post.
www.textanywhere.co.uk are very very fast when it comes to sending messages, slight drawback is that at the moment they do not support wap push but the plus is the speed of delivery and the simple SOAP API.
Charges are average, no interconnects as all that is taken into account in the initial message pricing which is dependant on usage.

I've heard good things about mBlox but haven't used them yet. Their website says they have relationships with 440+ mobile operators in 180 countries.

MBlox are one of the biggest out there, they are good from what I've heard but I never liked their API so used someone else that time.
It's really the likes of MX Telecom, WIN Plc and MBlox that stand out from the rest from what I can gather.

I have tried to signup to http://www.zimepl.com/ a few times now -- i dont know if they work anymore, their copyright still says 2004.
They seemed like the cheapest in the UK aswell
I'm going to give that wirelessmedia a go, they look cheap, and have a nice website

well it's a shame but i sent a message through our (very rarely used) zimepl account late last night and the message just came through some 16 hours later.
they still suck so it seems.
cheap isn't always good and in the case of zim cheap truly sucks.

I've been using clickatell.com for over a year. Very reliable and texts are usually sent within a few seconds.
All my customers are in the UK so I can't say what the international service is like, but clickatel is in SA so should be no difference. No setup fee, minimum purchase is 200 credits which works out to about 6p (USD 0.12) per message (depends on message size and also different networks use different number of credits per message). Prices are cheaper for bulk purchases.
I use PHP and the HTTP API.
