Hi All,

I'm a newbie to sms implementation and want to know how I can implement a facility that is capable of sending large volumes of text messages from a PC (whether through the internet or by the installation of software.)

I wish to generate revenue from the messages sent so what will be my best option?
I know companies offer off-the-shelf gateway packages where they share the profits of the text messages sent, but will it be more cost effective in the long run to implement the facility myself?
Do I have to contact major networks and other providers if I want to implement such a system?

In need of knowledge!

The short answer, yes.

If you want to make money off of the messages that you send, this is called "premium rate" SMS.

There is some discussion in the following thread that you might find useful:
