Hi
is it any cheaper to send an mms message to aa nowsms gateway than if we use for example the vodafone mmsc which charges about £0.40 per mms?
Cheers
Mike

Hi Mike,

It all depends on what outbound path is used for sending the MMS message. NowSMS is just middleware for message processing.

We do agree that MMS messaging costs are a serious problem in the UK.

In the US, MMS messages are often counted the same cost as a regular text, especially in an unlimited plan.

But MMS costs in the UK seem excessive.

Many people look at text messages that include a URL link to the full content as an alternative. It's not as slick, but when costs are the overriding concern, it makes sense.
