Hai friend,

In last year I was searching for SMS solution a lot and finally I got solution. Now I am using a third party ( a SMS company ) code for sending SMS from my web site. The code is easy editable. They had different tariffs. 1000 SMS, 10000 SMS , 1 lack sms .... I prefer rent a code like that. So that we can get 24X7 support also.

And GSM modem is a device that simply connect to our web server and it cost $50 I think ( I m not sure ). I am also not aware about how to connect with our web server. I got a detail description of GSM modem . If you likes to know more please find the attachment ( a pdf file ).

And one more thing I found is we need to insert SIM card into GSM modem and I am in doubt that any service provider offer FREE UNLIMITED SMS !!!

And finally I recommend third party solution because it is risk free I think ( I am not a service provider ) and finally one thing I found is we got custom from address , means it will show our domain/company name ( whatever we choose ) in clients phone instead of our number....

Sorry for the long reply and hoping that it will not make you borr...

Thanks
Rajeesh

Free SMS doesn't exist. Somebody has to pay for the text. Some sites offer so-called free SMS, but they usually insist on sending an advert with your message. AFAIK, there is no way around paying for SMS.

Thanx rajesh for ur detailed reply.. it is qiut helpful for me.. hav not read the manual yet, but one thing which is not clear is that we have to pay that site for providing us with sms bundle for our site? if so then y dont we choose some local servce provider for that?

Ya we must pay for each and every SMS. Hav a look at this

If our service provider's cost is less than these types then surely we can go for local service provider. But our web server must connected with GSM modem. Better to ask your hosting team.. sometimes they provide SMS gateway....

Thanks
