OK yesterday’s e-mail text alert was a total flop. Some subscribers got the alert and some got it, Oh, what, 24 hrs late (a fat lot of good that did – Ugg)!

So, time to knuckle up and pay for a service that is reliable, instant and works. I am very open to readers’ input on this, but I have some requirements before the suggestions start to fly. Here are my needs:

1) Cheap and reliable. I am willing to fork over $30 a month MAX
2) Simple. I want this web based and simple.
3) No long term commitments
4) I want unlimited texts, but not unlimited subscribers.

So the above is my short list (so far). I have been tinkering with this service as I like it so far and will test for one month (you will get a confirm text soon btw): http://text4freeonline.com/en/plans

But again, if you all have the perfect solution, that meets the above needs, and is RELIABLE, I am game to look at this as we move on with this idea.

Thanks all for your patience
while I tinker with this idea! – René

EDIT: Update. OK the new text service I am leaning. I will have to put in the list by hand as the auto merge not laying nice. You SHOULD get a text to just YES or NO to opt in. For new users directions to follow soon. Soooooo many thanks for your patience while I test and hit your phone with junk texts! – René

  1. What were you using before?

    IMO all these outsourced providers are complete ripoffs.

    A simple GUI on top of a mail server or two that deliver to the advertised cell-provider gateways? I could see charging $30/year for that MAYBE, but $30/month for low volumes? Outrageous.

  2. Let me put it in technical perspective. Yahoo & Google provide email-sending, receiving, storage, etc. etc. for FREE. OK I have been paying for a while for Yahoo Plus which is less ad-filled and a few more features for $20/year. There is far more software complexity there, than what any of these bulk-senders have to do.

    I haven’t researched providers sorry. At my workplace we just do it via direct-send. You are on AT&T, then your text address is 555-123-4567@mms.att.net. Simple. However I should note you can NEVER count on delivery times. I’ve seen even simple texts within 2 devices on the same networks take some time.
