WANT TO SEND OUT 1000 + TEXT MESSAGES

Anyone any ideas of a cheap way to do it? 18185 are 3p a text but they have a fair use policy but don't say what it is, I've emailed them but it might take weeks for a reply. Any other online places that I could send texts from? I could buy a mobile phone/sim/package but it's only going to be used during this summer probably, so don't want to sign my life away It's an idea to save money on postage costs - text members to read the newsletter on a website with a link instead of posting it out to them. I have 2 orange payg mobiles and access to 1 virgin and 2 on 02.
Thanks in advance for any info, ideas

Send out an email? That's much easier to do and free.

I personally wouldn't be too impressed if a company sent me a 'spam' text. I'd expect my mobile number to only be used when contacting me regarding an order..

Stop spamming people, anyway just get an O2 simplicty sim for a month with unlimited texts. But if you use a phone it will have to send them one at a time and take forever, you need to use a webservice designed to do it really. I blocked ad texts on my phone though to avoid rubbish like this.

o2 wouldnt allow this anyway, it'd be classed as spam.

I'm not a company! It'll be texts that people want to receive about where to meet, what's happening etc. email is good but I don't think all the addresses are up to date.

Having a little get together at your gaff tonight for the football are you?

Inviting a few of your friends?

Thats nice

Bagsy not paying for the ale for it though :thinking: :whistling:

all opinions welcome, I expect there are things I haven't thought of, like mobiles that know that a text is part of a bulk texting or something. I'm not very tech savvy, just want to save time & money. :)

I think o2 pay as you go have the option of unlimited texts if you top up £15/month? Have a look on the website.

get them to update it? mobiles might not be up to date. i'd say people change mobile numbers more than emails.

I'm interested in this too.

My uncle's organisation would be interested in this too as some members don't check their emails daily/weekly but would read a text message (as it's on them).

*Edit* I forgot we actually looked at this during our consultancy report.

Check out this site: http://www.bulksms.co.uk/w/solutions.htm

This is their pricing: http://www.bulksms.co.uk/w/pricing.htm

It might be of use :)

Although a simplicity sim would work out cheaper....

that looks really promising - thank you :)

get a simplicity sim (rolling 30 day contract)

for £10 a month minimum you will get the unlimited texts included - And you can send texts online via the myo2 website for free.
