We used NYT in the past for things like 'cough' adult services and found the stats to be up and down like a *****s knickers. To be honest I wasn't impressed even though I know they're pretty big in the adult contacts / dogging arena as I've seen their ads all over the place.
What experience do you have of them and what in your eyes made them so good?
If I can add that we have not been paid on the traffic we generated through this company and that the word a***holes springs to mind when I hear their name.

I also use them for 18+ services, seems pretty reliable to me, but i haven't used any of the ones in that list so i wouldn't know how it compares.

No they run commercial services.

how about www.smseverywhere.com i'm considering using them for an sending mass sms from a secure area in my website to customers....

That's the first I've heard of them but try them and let us know how you got on.

thanks for the fast reply. i will. i don't think i would recommend them outside NA though, as they seem to only service canada, usa, mexico. and since i plan to do this for chicago in the US, it seems very good for me.
and 20,000 bulk SMS/month for $24 with $100 stup fea, or 50,000 for $24/month with $200 setup fee. Not bad at all!
my semester in school is almost over, and for the month i have of vacation, i will be using it to code this with a friend. make a secure site only we can access, maintain a database of recipeints, divide them into groups, and then send to them as we see fit, maybe even implementing scheduled SMS sends.
i'm going to be begin learning programming for this project and i think i'll mostly piece it together from existing free scripts. byt what is recommended? PHP?

php wins my vote hands down every time. spose it's about what you know and are comfortable with......

thank you! hehe problem is i don't know anything (except mild html/wml/xhtml)! but there's a first time for everything!

If your application is not for commercial use, it is a waste of money to buy so many SMS messages (20,000 or 50,000 per month) at a time. Some SMS service providers do not require any setup fee and they do not set any minimum purchase amount.

I've found that usually anyone using the words "setup fees" or "minimum usage" is a 'sales prevention' officer........ Thus, needs a beasting. lol
Hey punkserb, it's as good a time to learn PHP as any, there's that many tutorials and forums you should be able to pick it up. The manual always helps too. Good luck.

yea i'm beginning now and excited about it.
as for the service...we have a lot of memebers on the site. we'll be sedning updates a few times a week to hundreds of meembers, so thousands of SMS's will be used, but not 50,000, that's true.
for the rest of those we have left over, we'll setup an area for members to login to and send SMS's to friends, within reasonable limits of course.
but those no minimum/pay-per-use places are much more expensive than this. it is, IMO, because they have global support. smsmeverywhere seems only to be for noth america. and since that's all we need, it doesn't make sense paying $0.06/SMS.
